I figured, with the last episode fast approaching, it was a great time for a reread, and a good time to start annotating books. Who else annotates books, and has any tips to share?

BookwormAHN I do 🙋🏼‍♀️ and I love using book darts. 4mo
lorannen I didn't make it through book 2 back when I first attempted reading these. Would be interested to know what your annotations might be like. There's just so much going on & so much detail! 4mo

Not being able to go to work because of all the snow means I get to read all day!! I can‘t believe it took me so long to pick this book up!! I absolutely loved it. The twists!! It kept me guessing until the very end!

Bookladylinda I haven‘t read it yet either. 🙁 8mo

I should be focusing on school work. But INSTEAD, my boss let me borrow this book and I can not put it down!! The story just sucks you in, and has you hanging off every word. The suspense is perfectly written.

Finishing the year out with some suspense. What‘s everyone‘s New Year‘s resolutions? Mine are to read more books (of course) and try try tryyy to be more healthy!

HOTPock3tt To lose weight (of course) and to start cataloging my books so that I know how many I‘ve read per month/year... 9mo
Sydneyreads @HOTPock3tt I feel ya! I always have the hardest time holding on to my motivation. I need results NOW. 9mo

I had actually planned to put this book off for a bit, and read something else. But after finishing the Drums of Autumn, I had to jump right in!! Who else is excited for season 4!!!🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

BookNAround So excited! I have to admit I didn‘t love this book though and needed encouragement to get through it. I loved the first four and just found this one such hard going. 13mo
Birdsong28 I felt exactly the same after reading/listening to the first one a few months ago but I knew that I wouldn't enjoy it the same so I listened to a few shorter audiobooks then I am now back listening to Dragonfly in Amber. Can't wait for the 4th series though!!! Even though I know what is going to happen when I do eventually get to the audiobooks it doesn't spoil it, it enhances them. 😀📚📖 13mo
HOTPock3tt Super excited!! ❤️ In the beginning of this book it was really tough to keep going 😕 but I ended up liking it a lot!! Took about 41 chapters though 😅literally 😶lol. If I wasn‘t already so in love with the outlander series I probably would‘ve dropped it. Glad I kept going though it came together nicely. Towards the end there were some REaLLy fun parts of this book!!! So excited to see Claire & Jaime back on the big screen for season 4 & 5! ❤️ (edited) 13mo
Sydneyreads @BookNAround @Birdsong28 @HOTPock3tt this book is seriously daunting. May end up having to put it down every once in awhile to pick something else up 😅😅 13mo
