I liked the ideas in this book but I thought the characters could use work. The characters don't really get developed until the end and they seem like caricatures. I did like the ending, Sorry it took so long @peanutnine , I'll mail it out today. @GondorGirl @Johanna414 #lmpbc group j

Johanna414 I thought this was a picture of my cat at first and was very confused - Looks just like my Ruby! 😂 2w
peanutnine No worries, I'll look out for it! ☺️ Cute kitty 💕 2w

As someone who's been part of a community garden for years I really enjoyed this book. My son really wanted to flip through the book even though he can't read yet 😆

This book was dense but good. It's part memoir part his musings on different aspects of the universe. It reminded me of Startalk without the comedian co hosts.

For some reason this book offended me. Not everyone with adhd is the same in terms of organization/disorganization. Also it's very outdated and expects everyone to have a large house!

This had some graphic descriptions of war which could be hard at times, but I enjoyed it. The author got drafted to serve a year in Vietnam, and this is hia story about that year.

This was predictable but fun. I enjoyed the dynamic the two main characters had. I also enjoyed how there was a low key question of adhd since I'm currently exploring that too.

I'm playing catch up with a bunch of books I forgot to post about. This one is probably only interesting if you live in Madison. I've been to most of these restaurants and have seen Tori plenty of times at Farmers market. It was fun to here more of the chefs' stories.

This was a funny take on early parenthood. I thought it was amusing but a little confusing to sort between real advice and silly things. I'm not sure who it's aimed towards but it was entertaining having already gone through that stage once.

Contuing my Covid catchup with books, I finished this in the last couple weeks. I really enjoy how one of the author's characters is always somewhere on the spectrum. It reframes what a romance can mean. This book in particular really made me question if I should be evaluated myself. A great book!

GondorGirl I felt this entire series was really well done! 5mo

This was a weird book but it tells a fun story. It's a noir fiction about someone stalking Brent Spiner as his daughter from an episode of TNG. It wasn't what I expected but it was fun to get a little memoir inserted into this crazy plot.

This book was a lot of fun. It goes through every season and talks about some of the iconic episodes as well as some of the decisions that were made about costumes, props etc. From the cast interviews you can tell they all loved being a part of this fantastic show.

I liked where this book went eventuality but it took a while to get there. Like other reviewers I thought it was odd these girls are in high school. It really seems like this should be set at a college. The end saved this for me, it took me a while to get through it but I'm glad I did.

This book was so good! It's about a boy who's been bullied for years by the same person. Him and his mom go away for a bit and it does wonders. At the same time he has these dreams about his grandfather who was a pow/mia from Vietnam, and it's not what you expect!

I missed posting about this last week and wanted to mention it because i thought it actually had really good advice! Especially about taking a step back and realizing you can't compare to someone else because you're different people with different circumstances. And remembering soical media is the highlight, not every day. I still check myself when I find myself comparing or getting jealous of others

I thought this was a fun book. It was a good motivator and reminder that any running is better then none, and you shouldn't compare yourself to other people. I finished this a day before my first race in 2 years so it was a well timed read 🙂

A lot of the advice in this book I already knew but I still thought it was a good read. The only problem I find these books can't answer is how do you find the time to go through your things and organize in the first place?
