Hoping it ends up being a good pick for the rest of you. I wasn‘t totally into it and was disappointed bc I‘ve heard a lot about Lisa Jewell. Eager to see what you guys think. #lmpbc

slategreyskies Oh, it‘s always disappointing when a book isn‘t as good as you expected. I‘ve never read any books by this author, so it‘ll be a first for me. :) 1w
Crazeedi That's disappointing but I'll keep an open mind! 1w

Done! I‘d recommend this to anyone who enjoys modern retells. Made me want to go back and reread Lewis Caroll‘s version. Moving on to book 2.

I won‘t say too much as this was my choice for #LMPBC, but I will say that it‘s worth a read. There were some inconsistencies. I felt like it was more of a middle grade read with the exception of a single steamy scene. Curious what my group members think once they read it.

So I started this audio last night. It‘s included with an audible membership, so I figured why not. It‘s a modern version of Alice in Wonderland. The MC great great great grandmother was the Alice who “inspired” Lewis Carroll. Now generations later the family tree is suffering. It‘s is the first book of a trilogy. #impulseread

Thanks so much for tag @MoonWitch94

🎃 I feel like the months are flying by. I didn‘t get very much time to read so that‘s kind of sad, but there‘s November.
🦃 I love November! It‘s when I start crocheting short project for gifts, and Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

Recently finished this first of the Dark Artifices series. Emma Carstairs is in search of those who are responsible for her parents‘ deaths in the Dark War. Lots of love, betrayal, and shadowhuntery sorts of things. A must read if you‘re a fan.

@Twainy practicing with my new sticker pen, which is actually called decorating tape. It‘s so much fun and perfect for #litsylove letters.

wanderinglynn Fun! 🎃🧡 1mo
Twainy 🎃 I had fun reading about tea. I still feel I know nothing about it. 😆 It just occurred to me that I might have been asking the wrong question. I should have asked what‘s the most common tea not what is the best. I think I started a feud between 2 coworkers with that question 😆 I had fun! I‘m not sure what I was searching for when Sticker pens came up 😂 I hope you have a Happy Halloween! 🤗 1mo

Technically, if I have to choose I prefer witches. I really prefer witches and vampires, which is why the tagged book is a witch favorite of mine. Funny story: when my Language Arts Supervisor started in my district, we had a discussion about books and he recommended the tagged book. Didn‘t think I‘d like it, but figured I had to give it a go bc, you know, supervisor. I figured he‘d ask what I thought. I did and he did. 😀 🧙

Made the mistake of watching the series before picking these up, but if I rated based solely on the graphic novel I‘d give 3 1/2 Stars.

A reporter moves back to her home town to restart her career after making a mistake in the big city. She stumbles upon a possible serial killer story. Now she can‘t let the story go. Not a bad story, but I thought quite often that it was just too long and didn‘t have any surprising moments. Never left me with my mouth hanging open.

In the middle of this one. So far it‘s just ok. I think it will get better when I can listen to it while commuting. I find it difficult when I only have short bits of time to read. It makes it difficult to get into a book.

“Fitting” seems to be a theme that runs through the story. Fashion, family... where have you noticed “fitting” as a recurring theme? #septbuddyread

SeaToSkyes How Cindy feels like she doesn't fit in with the other women participating on the show 3mo
dimedgirl In Ch.6 Cindy couldn‘t fit in clothes in store that only offered plus sizes online. I hate shopping for clothes online because I never know what fits, and I can only imagine the struggle for those who wear plus sized clothes cause selections I‘ve seen in stores are minimal. I thought the commentary that those sizes are only online for publicity sake is a sad state of how some companies only fake being supportive. 3mo

Ok let‘s talk about the elephant in the room: reality TV. It‘s a fun and modern spin on a prince searching for his princess in the original Cinderella. Cindy shares the behind the scenes actions and decisions that producers make on reality shows. What are your thoughts about reality TV? How “reality” are they? #septbuddyread

SeaToSkyes I have never particularly cared for reality tv. One of the few shows I did watch was Catfish. I just don't see how they can be classified as "reality" when they are partially scripted and events are planned to happen in the show. 3mo
dimedgirl I deliberately avoid them because I know I‘ll get sucked in ? They all feel so fake and absurd, but the drama can be interesting enough for me to follow. I‘ve seen clips of shows like 90 Day Fiancé or RuPaul‘s Drag Race that certainly make me either laugh or happy I‘m not personally dealing with their problems ? The only show I watched when I was younger was Say Yes to the Dress because I loved seeing wedding gowns ? 3mo
