shellleigh33 Hey @Velvetsun was wondering if you have mailed this month #LMPBC book yet. I have yet to get it 1y
Velvetsun @shellleigh33 I did. I will double check the tracking. I was just getting ready to mail off the next book as well. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1y
shellleigh33 @Velvetsun was your ever able to check on that tracking bc I still haven‘t got the book. I hope it didn‘t get lost in the mail or sent to the wrong place 🤷‍♀️😩 1y
Velvetsun @shellleigh33 post office still had it listed as ‘in transit to the destination” until Saturday - when it changed to “pending”. Then the book, in a plastic Usps bag....not the original padded envelop...was returned this morning. I‘ll get it back in the mail on Wednesday with the next book as well. I‘m sorry for the delay. 😕😕😕 1y
shellleigh33 That is perfectly fine @Velvetsun. I was just worried it had got lost in the mail. 1y
shellleigh33 Hey @Velvetsun was still wondering if you was reading the last book in our group (Thunderhead). I never got it so I could sent it on to @BarkingMadRun I‘m hoping it didn‘t get lost in the mail 😢 13mo
Velvetsun @shellleigh33 I sent the book out a while ago. So much has been going on lately, it honestly slipped my mind when I didn‘t hear anything else from the group. 🙁 13mo
shellleigh33 Maybe it is lost in all this mail right now. I will keep my eye out for it. Maybe it will get here shortly. 13mo

5 Stars

This book....was out and out banana pants crazy.
In the best possible way!
He Started It was by far one of the most
entertaining reading experiences I‘ve had all year. It is about a family road trip. A very
dysfunctional family road trip.
It‘s a wild one, guys!

Read my full review on my blog!

I haven‘t been reading very much lately. It‘s mainly been because of a combination of work stress and diamond painting addiction. But I just got these new releases and feel like it might be time to dive into something new.

Which one should I read first?
