This is a wonderful historical fiction about Claude & Blanche Azuzello. Claude was the hotel manager for the Ritz Hotel in Paris before, during & after WWII. The story begins with the meeting of Claude & Blanche as their romance was kind of a whirl wind start. The story is told from each of their perspectives & I loved how you would seamlessly flow from each... Full review on Goodreads!

Really enjoyed the conclusion of this series! Still had a lot of good action and adventure that I‘ve come to expect from this series. Also it was wonderful ending to all the characters stories that you‘ve grown to know and love. So I was very satisfied with the ending and it just felt complete. Great series!

Wow! Just Wow! It‘s been a while since a read a book that was from the perspective of just one character, and it did not disappoint! Following Hanneke‘s story was just amazing! Everything made for a beautiful historical fiction, the love, the loss, the terrible war and the strength of those having to live through it. Absolutely loved this book!

This book (ATM) is my top 2019 read!!! Told from 3 different perspectives & yet as seamless as could be! I loved all the characters & the writing is so rich you almost become those characters & feel what they feel. This book has it all! Adventure, love, heartbreak, action & mystery. At times I wanted to jump through the pages & say ‘she‘s right under your nose!‘ most of the time where I was just anxious to see what happened next!
My sleepy lil kitten Miss Penny says Happy Birthday 🎂 Oscar Meyer!!
(Yes she got in this position on her own and fell asleep!)

I absolutely loved this book! Right from the start I was hooked! It was everything I love! A strong independent woman, the theatre, sports (baseball), romance, tragedy and some true history thrown in the mix! I loved getting lost in this world and fell in love with the characters. I loved how the story was spread over several years, rather than a small section of the characters lives. Highly recommend this historical fiction!
So I literally just put this on hold and didn‘t expect this for 6 months! What a great book surprise!!! Definitely an excitement that only fellow Littens understand!!! Love my #LitsyCommunity !!!

This book was amazing! I have loved this series from book one! This mystery has a lot of twist and I absolutely loved the new character the Quilter! Loved how she would pop in at such random times and knew exactly what Lily needed! I can not wait until the next installment takes me back to the Isle!

Getting some reading in with my snuggle buddy! I absolutely love this new addition to the Magic & Mixology series! I‘m about 1/2 way through & as always the rich detail & fun quirks of new characters is always a fun aspect! Miss Penny sure missed her momma! I was gone most of the weekend for my oldest daughters state archery tournament & she has barely left my side!

I finished this a few days ago and forgot to post a review 🤦🏼♀️
I absolutely loved this graphic novel! To be honest it was my first graphic novel and I can‘t wait it get my hands on more! I loved how every page was these crazy funny things that ONLY bookworms understand! It was just fabulous!!! Every bookworm needs to read this book!

Lovin‘ this graphic novel! It‘s spot on for bookworms! My new snuggle bug Penny (we decided on her name, it‘s from Hairspray bc she a ‘checker board chick‘ 🤣😏) just can‘t seem to hang! Funny one of the questions yesterday on the adoption form was do you have a bed for your new pet, I was thinking yea I go somethings...umm she‘s taken over the recliner! We have quite the lil diva on our hands! And she makes the best book buddy!
So last weekend we sadly lost our sweet boy Wicked. So today we decided to save a life at our local animal shelter and ADOPT! Meet Briar (name not 100% yet)!!! She is a precious 2 month old kitten that will hopefully fit right in with our crazy animal crew! She has been an amazing car rider and I‘m hopeful she will be a good snuggler while I read!

I really liked this book. Kind of read like a memoir but wasn‘t and I really enjoyed that. I loved the way it was written as a letter to her children. I loved how real Marie was and how blunt she could be with her thoughts and perspectives. Overall just a great book! Can‘t wait to read more by this author! Great debut novel!
My heart is heavy and breaking...my fluffy snuggle buddy is gone. My sweet Wicked crossed over the Rainbow 🌈 bridge. My house just doesn‘t feel right without this ‘Hi‘ meow...I swear he was saying ‘Hi‘ it was precious! We think he either got bit by something or just some how got a nasty nasty infection that he just couldn‘t fight. My heart just hurts 💔😭
I have really been enjoying this series! Though this book takes place many years after book 2 many of the same characters are there yet the new ones are equally important and interesting. This book follows the daughter of Hester and Tom and I really enjoyed following Wren‘s story! Excited to start the fourth and final book in the Hungry City chronicles!

Sitting in my car determined to finish my book as I‘m waiting to see a concert with my daughter and her best friend. They are out in line in the cold and I am warm and snug with my book in the car! There have been ppl waiting in line since 6:30am! The doors don‘t even open til 7p show starts at 8p! So I have 2.5 more hours of waiting...Calpurnia we are waiting for you! (Finn Wolfhard‘s band for you Stranger Things fans!)
Took this beautiful picture from my front yard of the beautiful moon!
Enjoying this new book for #BlackHistoryMonth its inspired by true events and written by a #BlackWomanAuthor I‘m loving the perspective of the main character writing to her children. It‘s really a different yet more personal way to see the story through the main character!

Doing more audio cooking tonight! Dinner tonight is homemade lasagna roll ups!!! They are separated because my daughter and I do not like cottage cheese and my hubby does! My youngest daughter had a completely different super bc she won‘t eat anything hardly 🙄
But I got the clean plate award for clearing my plate! 😏

I absolutely loved this book! Not your typical predictable historical fiction! Loved the 3 different stories going on and the twist at the end! I also loved the independence of the character Grace, loved how her story was not your typical ending...I don‘t want to spoil it! Great great addition to the WW2 historical fiction genre!

Did some Audio cooking tonight! Dinner is homemade chicken with handmade dumplings! Yum! 😋 Been a busy weekend so I was glad to get some listening in while I did some dishes and cooked this yummy supper!

This was a great historical fiction, and I loved the majority of the book but I would have liked to read more about the Ack-Ack girls. This was the first historical fiction that I have ever read about those women and I wanted more! The love stories in both perspectives were a bit overwhelming at times. Though I have to admit the twist was pretty shocking! Overall ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 stars

Audio driving today. Archery 🏹 is life for us this time of year. Every weekend a different school and another tournament. My oldest didn‘t do so hot today and kinda had a ‘come to Jesus‘ moment as we in the south like to say. Sometimes you just need a lil kick in the behind to shoot you into greatness...I hope it works.

So not book related (though I listened to my audiobook on the way to and from the hospital)but...this is my new nephew Mr. Maddox Carter!! I am so in love! 🥰 Gotta love me some sweet sweet baby snuggles!!

I really enjoyed this second installment of the Mortal Engines series. I honestly had worried how it would go with so many of the previous books characters gone. I enjoyed the new adventure and new and exciting characters. Really excited about things to come with that ending!

I am usually a pretty slow reader but this book I could hardly put down! This story was so different and so magical from a anything that I have read before! The rich characters and setting were perfect for a winter novel and I can‘t wait to dive more into this series! When a slow reader like myself basically finishes a book in a day...you know it‘s amazing!!!

A good friend suggested this book to me and I have been hooked! I text him today to let him know about my progress and he said ‘did you know it‘s a trilogy?‘ I said I didn‘t but quickly found the other two books and put them on hold on my #Libby app!!! I‘m usually a pretty slow reader but today (our first free weekend this year from Archery) I have read from 5% to 70% and the day isn‘t over yet!!!

1.) Allegiant...I was soooo mad!!!
2.) The hospital cafeteria but sometimes drug reps brings us yummy lunches!
3.) In 8th grade I had hurt my foot (had on an air cast) forgot about it and stood up to take my lunch tray back...slipped & fell on my ass in front of the whole middle school!
4. Lavender, vanilla, a lit tobacco barn (it‘s a southern thing, but trust me it‘s amazing!) southern charm (handmade soap)
5.) Crimson Scarlet
Having our first winter storm! Looking at between 3-6inches possibly more! I‘ll be happy to stay here in my warm house with my book and a blanket and my new house shoes!

This was a beautiful book. This was the first book I have ever read on WWII (and they are my favorite) that had the perspective of someone who was German. It was amazing to see that perspective as well as an American and Polish perspectives. I would highly recommend this wonderful WWII book!

Today was probably the worst day at this job I have ever had! So bad I had to report a co-worker to HR for hostility. I know it was the right thing to do but now I don‘t know what will happen and that‘s worry-some. Will it make the other co-workers upset, is this going to create more drama 😔But this terrible treatment has to stop. Why do I have to work...I just wanna stay home and read & be anti-social.
