The deeper I get into this series the more I love it. The characters are fabulous. The plots are always good and I love the sarcasm in the dialogue. I didn't see that ending coming and enjoyed the continued development of the characters. I listened to this book and thought the narrator was excellent. He added to the experience. 5⭐ for both book and narrator. Another book for #SeriesRead2022

TheSpineView Forgot to mention this is my #DoubleSpin book for May. @TheAromaofBooks 19h

Happy Tuesday! Here are the #Two4Tuesday questions for today. Everyone is welcome to play!

My answers:
📚 Definitely a Bibliophile!
📚📚 Not only do I read a lot, I collect books even though I already own more than I can read in my lifetime. Also, I love to talk about books and I find I must own my own copy of books I love. For these reasons I consider myself a Bibliophile.

I do love Griffith's descriptive prose. Even though I figured out who the murderer was there were still elements that surprised me. The characters were especially good. They fit the situation and were fully developed. 4⭐ And another book for the #SeriesRead2022 challenge.

It is almost time for the #MarvellousMay readathon hosted by @Andrew65

This is low key so you choose your own goals. Read a little or a lot, it is all up to you. I usually go for 40 hours. However, I am so busy right now I am going to shoot for 30 hours. Not sure what I want to read yet. I'll have to think on it a bit. Hope you can join the fun!💚📖💚📗💚

🏇 I ride! There is nothing like the feeling of soaring over a fence with your horse. The whole world drops away and riding is good exercise. I come home tired but feeling restored.
🏇🏇 I went to the barn 3 times in the last 7 days.
