Thank you @4thhouseontheleft ! These are wonderful and I look forward to reading them! The candle smells so good! It‘s safe to say that candy will not last the day! I‘ve been wanting to read A Court of Thorns and Roses for a while! @Mommamanzi thanks again for organizing this swap! #TheRetellingBookSwap

Mommamanzi Oh my Holy Lord in Heaven above. This may be my all time fav package ever! The Lunar Chronicles are hands down top 3 series I have ever read. I adore them. My second top 3 series is the Throne of Glass series that happens to have the same author as Court of Thorn and Roses book (still need to read that series) love he candle AH!!! Love everything ♥️❤♥️ (edited) 2y
4thhouseontheleft I'm glad you like it! I couldn't resist buying the Vile Villains Jelly Bellies when I saw them! 😃 @Mommamanzi your comment is 😍😍😍!! I didn't realize that AcoTaR was inspired by beauty and the beast until I started shopping for this swap! 2y

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

Dark, heavy and hard to put down. I'm going to need something lighthearted now. Any suggestions?

hermyknee Do you like YA? I just finished Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and it's a really heartwarming book. Or, have you ever read Christopher Moore? He is hilarious. 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I'm currently listening to this on audio! A light hearted suggestion. I don't usually read a lot of romance type books but I found, Third Times the Charm by Heather B Moore to be fun. It's part of the Aliso Creek Novellas. It's a clean, a little cheesy, but fun. I enjoyed it! 2y
SamLBooks @hermyknee I have been looking for an excuse to start a Christopher Moore book! 😊Any favorites? @ForeverNerdy I think a novella sounds great! I'll give it a go! Thanks! 😊 2y

hermyknee Yes! Fool, A Dirty Job, The Stupidest Angel, and You Suck: A Love Story! I also read Island of the Sequined Love Nun. The two I remember most and I liked best were Fool and The Stupidest Angel. All were fun reads! 😻 2y

Genuine Fraud | E. Lockhart

22/52 Reading challenge. I really wanted to like this book. I loved that the main character was proud of her strength and stood up for herself. However, there was no suspense/mystery. The story just felt shallow and didn't leave a lasting impression on me. 😞

2. Such a hard choice! To have that creativity as an author or to have some sort of super power. I guess I'll go with author but it's pretty 50/50. ⚡️
3. Always cry, my face is an open book 😭
4. Read 1000 pages, but I would rather be able to choose the country.
5. Always read the back cover. Sometimes I am just attracted to the cover! 🌻
