Netflix has a special out called Historical Roasts and it's actually really funny and well done. Having read Anne Frank and visited her home in Amsterdam I couldn't pass this up. I was nervous but Gilbert Godfrey as Hitler was hysterical along with everyone roasting him.

Sorry if any offense!

Cross Her Heart: A Novel | Sarah Pinborough
Pickpick

It's been a loooooooong time since a book made me cry. And for that I recommend it. If I can be emotionally compromised by an authors words then they deserve a solid review! It's a bit predictable but worth the read. There are some twists that you won't see coming that add suspense and mystery. The end will rip your heart out. 😭 #charrot

kellyann28 I actually just swapped for this book and wasn't super excited about it, but I love a good, sad story! I may pick this up sooner rather than later. 2mo

Although Koontz can get carried away with descriptions, I can definitely confirm that this book lived up to the title. I doubt it could've been achieved with anything less than what Koontz described so I won't hold it against him. I do wish there had been more to Vess but overall a good book.

Kept thinking she could never live without Mummy's guide. But then she spent so many nights drinking vodka until dawn. And then met Raymond. And learned how to get along. And now she's back! To her work space. She just walked in to find her out her coworkers are no longer two faced. 🎶🎶 Part 1 of 2.

This book was the worst. Maybe I'm hormonal and pregnant but that makes me the target audience right? Soooooo judgy at a time in a woman's life when the last thing she needs is judgement. Not a book I will pass on.

No, I don't want no judgment

Mehso-so

This is a novel that is so far fetched that it can be very hard to believe and follow. That said, you really connect with some of the characters like Oly and Chick. Or at least worry for them. It's hard to really describe but if you take the Isle of Misfit toys and give them a manipulative leader and a reality TV show then you're almost there.

Kaye Memoirs. : When We Were the Kennedys , I‘m Down, Freak Show Without a Tent , Kookooland , Southern Education of a Jersey Girl, Girl Named Zippy , Crapalachia , Driving Miss Norma , Jackie‘s Girl , The Ride of Our Lives , Wildflower by Mark Seal. 5mo
Soubhiville I‘d second The Poet X. I love Robin Hobb on audio- she‘s got a ton of chunkster fantasy books. Ready Player One is great with Wil Wheaten Reading it. Patrick Rothfuss‘ books are also incredible on audio. Don‘t miss Born a Crime! 5mo
cherinium Definitely Born a Crime. @Soubhiville is right about that and Ready Player One. Also, I recently listened to To Kill a Mockingbird with Sissy Spacek and loved her interpretation of Scout. The Martian and Artemis both have fantastic narration, as does It. I also recently loved the narrator for Beartown. 5mo
Victoriahoperose I really liked The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn on audio. A discovery of witches by Deborah hardness was great. I liked After Anna by Lisa Scottoline, A life in parts by Bryan Cranston and with love from the inside by Angela pessl! 5mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Soubhiville @cherinium I love Ready Player One and had no idea Will Wheaten did the audio narration. That makes it even more tempting. 5mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Victoriahoperose I've heard great things about Angela Pessl! I've read Woman in the Window and it was fantastic. 5mo
Susannah I totally agree with @Birdsong28 regarding Davina Porter‘s narration of Outlander. I only listened to the first book, but she was phenomenal. She also narrates The Mists of Avalon. 5mo
TheSpineView I loved the Illuminae series on audio. It was a full cast which I love. If you like Will Wheaton he narrates other books. Especially for John Scalzi of which I loved Lock In 5mo
Soubhiville Oh @TheSpineView I didn‘t know Wheaten did any Scalzi books! Obsessively going to reserve all of them now! Thank you! 5mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @TheSpineView @Soubhiville well now I have to jump on the party wagon and listen to them too! I love Will's voice. 5mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @TheSpineView I love the thought of a full cast narration 5mo
TheSpineView @Soubhiville You're welcome! 😊 5mo
TheSpineView @Whimsical.Curiosity 😊 5mo
TheSpineView @Whimsical.Curiosity I love the different voices. It is much better than the narrator just doing voices. 5mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @TheSpineView although I haven't listened to my first book yet, I can see this being much more enjoyable. 5mo
ReadingRover The best audiobook ever!!! It‘s hysterical. 5mo
DannyHattan The whole wheel of time series is great on audible 👌🏻🙌🏻😊 5mo
WhatThePuck The Book of Lost Things has by far been my favorite. If you want weeks long listens definitely give Outlander and A Discovery of Witches a try. Maybe you should start the Grishaverse with Six of Crows! I can probably lend you the first 3. I don't have Six of Crows. I do have Shadow and Bone. 5mo

It's been awhile since something has grabbed my attention so I went back to ole faithful. My lovely free bookbub downloads of sultry, sexy stories. Didn't take but a minute for me to be hooked and this book was fantastic! Shane is that dreamy, military boy and Josie doesn't make you want to claw your eyes out (win!). I'll follow this storyline through the series which says a lot of this little freebie.

This makes me so happy! Go NZ. What a great idea. When I was little we had the summer Pizza Hut reading program that let you earn free pizza. I read more books those summers than any other. ❤️🍕

BarbaraJean This is fantastic! 6mo
LiterRohde I‘m so pessimistic. My first thought was that it‘s still a good idea but that here in America it would get kids to eat less fast food. I know. I‘m horrible. 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @LiterRohde haha not horrible, realistic. I'm just hopeful that by teaching kids that books are treats that maybe they'll read more. 6mo

LiterRohde I‘m just a frustrated 9th grade reading teacher. Maybe part of the key would be to get them early when they still eat Happy Meals. 6mo
julesG We had books in the HM a few times here in Germany. Made my kids crave fast food. 😉 6mo
EH2018 I was always so excited to earn that free pan pizza! 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @LiterRohde whew good luck! I hated reading at that age. 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @julesG I mean, fast food is delicious haha but what a bonus to get a book too! 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @EH2018 right?! It was the best! 6mo
julesG We go to McD maybe once a year, so it's always something special for my kids. 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @julesG yeah my Mom only got it for me when I was sick as a special treat. It's still the only thing I want when I'm sick as an adult. 6mo
SleepyDragon They still have a reading program at Pizza Hut during the school year if the teacher signs the class up. Jack in the Box *used to* have puzzles and mini National Geographic Kids books in their kids meals occasionally, but then they stopped putting any treat in with their kids meals, so we stopped buying them. 6mo
WhatThePuck It's what we get after doctors appointments too. The hubs just started eating McD's again after a 12 year hiatus. He watched super size me and lost his appetite. So it used to be a treat for me and the kids since we only got it when he wasn't around. It's still what we want when we don't feel good either. I've had a head cold all week and I've eaten breakfast there every day this week. 😂 6mo
EclecticBookLover Book It! I still have my pin somewhere!!!! 😁 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @NeesyBeth that's awesome they still do it!! I'm half tempted to look kinda it myself 🤣🤣 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck that movie was awful but it didn't phase me lol. That's funny we both want it when we're sick ❤️ there's just something comforting about it. Aside from the fact it's delicious. And they have the best Coke ever. 6mo
WhatThePuck @Whimsical.Curiosity milk shakes were a big thing for when we were sick. Emmalea and I have strep a lot. Now poor Jacob can't have milk shakes so I have to run by Speedway too for a slushy. 😂😂 6mo
WhatThePuck The show also didn't phase me. I might have even ate McDonald's while watching it. 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck slushies are a solid substitute. 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck bwhahaha I can see you doing that. And all this talk has me wanting McDonald's! 6mo
WhatThePuck I had it for breakfast tonight. My mom just invited me to Frisch's. Who am I to say no? 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck Frisch's!! We go there got breakfast buffet every time I'm home. Those French toast stix are the bomb. 6mo
WhatThePuck We had to quit going for breakfast when Andy went on medical leave. We couldn't afford the breakfast buffet for 4 people. 😂😂😂😂 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck it's expensive! And the staff give no Fs. It's the only place my Dad will go for breakfast though lol. He lives right back in that neighborhood off Taylorsville road. 6mo

WhatThePuck Neither of us are religious but we met in Catholic High School. I wasq a bitch in school bc I was bullied a lot before switching to the school I met Becci in. I knew she was always sweet and funny and we did talk but it took Facebook for me to realize how much I really like her and now she lives in another state! We message almost daily. When she isn't sleeping now. Growing babies is hard. 6mo

Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck I was laughing at that the other day. I'm always complaining about social media, but sometimes it brings people together like us ❤️ I love our daily messages. Funny how we both aren't religious! 6mo
darklydreaming #7 - congrats! 6mo
laur89 100% agree with 1, 2, and 14!! 6mo
WhatThePuck @Whimsical.Curiosity I'm off Facebook right now. If you announce what you're having you'll have to do it here or message me. 😂😂 I was thinking about how we would complain to each other and ALL the baby posts and then I accidentally had Jacob and became one of them and now it's your turn! 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @laur89 I knew we were meant to be besties! 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck I know it's crazy! I love seeing all your posts about him though. And it's a Girl!!! I'm not posting anything on FB right now. I'm kinda over it but then I do want to tell everyone eventually. I'm just dragging my feet. Maybe once I have a big ole preggo belly I'll post a picture or something. 6mo

Thinking simply this year and setting an attainable goal for myself. This year will prove to be very busy. Plus making arms and legs makes me super sleepy! 🤰💤

Whimsical.Curiosity @Johanna414 it's definitely rough on my extracurricular activities! All I wanna do is eat and nap 🤣 6mo
toric I only got average reading done when i was pregnant but i got LOADS of reading done once the baby was born. If you buy a feeding cushion you can either breastfeed and read or hold a bottle with one hand and a book with the other. Congrats on the little bundle of lovely!!! I hope everyone is healthy and happy as can be 6mo

lahousewyfe I so miss it! Which is your favorite location? 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @lahousewyfe I love the downtown location but am equally tied to the others. I've lived near each at a different time. We took after wedding pictures downtown so I'll say that one haha. What's yours? 6mo
lahousewyfe @Whimsical.Curiosity I really miss the Cherry Creek location, but I'm a bit in love with the one in the old Lowenstein theatre (Colfax). 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @lahousewyfe I never knew the Cherry Creek location! But the Colfax one is awesome. The party they had there looked so cool! Ours was a bit quieter. 6mo
lahousewyfe @Whimsical.Curiosity In the final years, the Cherry Creek location (which was the only one then) had a restaurant on the top story - I think it was called The Fourth Story - which was so good. The checks came in old books. I was sad when they lost their lease. I think the downtown location has a bit of that old vibe. 6mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @lahousewyfe oh I'm so sad I never got to go to that location, it sounds magical! I do love grabbing a coffee and having about at the downtown location. 6mo
