Alright! As probably expected at this point, I picked my #LMPBC #groupv book! 👏🏽👏🏽 It will arrive from good ol‘ Amazon tomorrow! @MaleficentBookDragon @TK421 @Bklover @BethM

Also, @ofbooksandme I assume this fantastic bag is from you?? Love it!! Thank you!!! ♥️♥️♥️ #SFMBC

BethM Woot woot! 2d
BethM Btw am I supposed to include a journal or just the book? 2d
Avanders @BethM I don‘t think we‘ve talked about how the group wants to handle things yet... but I‘d say a journal is often nice... it might depend on how you‘re adding notes (eg @Chrissyreadit used stickies last round!) or how much writing space there is in the book? I‘m tagging the others for input tho ☺️ @MaleficentBookDragon @TK421 @Bklover 2d
See All 19 Comments
Chrissyreadit @BethM I‘ve loved stickies and having book journal included, but I also wrote in books. (edited) 2d
BethM @Chrissyreadit well have to talk about our group too! 2d
ofbooksandme Yes, it's it is. Glad you like it 2d
TK421 I'm completely fine with writing notes or comments in the book. I'll include a small journal for longer comments, or your final thoughts or review. If we are all going to write in the books should we all choose a different color of ink? @Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon @Bklover @BethM 1d
Bklover Mine is a mass market paperback so not a whole lot of room. I love the idea of stickies for brief comments and the journal for longer/summary? I also love writing in books! And @TK421 I‘ll use red ink if that‘s all right with everyone. @Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon @BethM 1d
TK421 @Bklover that's fine with me. I'll use green!😊 1d
Bklover Perfect! @TK421 (edited) 1d
BethM I‘ll use purple! I‘m off to B&N after a pedicure! 1d
Avanders @ofbooksandme love it! Already using it 🥰🥰 1d
Avanders I‘m cool w however we want to handle it, even in the moment. Write in the book, use a stickie, use the journal, it‘s all good. As for ink, @MaleficentBookDragon I think @TK421 is using green (see above 😉). You pick otherwise and I‘ll take the remainder — I have lots of pens 😁 @bklover @bethm 1d
MaleficentBookDragon Good catch @Avanders Hmmm. I'll take blue. 1d
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon 😉 ok I‘ll take.... honestly, It‘ll prob be black. 😔 But I‘ll try to remember to bring one of my “funner” colors home from work 😁 pink? Orange? Turquoise? Lime? 1d
Avanders @Bklover sweet! And I see @bethm has purple... and a pedicure. I need a pedicure.... 🦶🏽💅🏾👡 1d
BethM @Avanders it was lovely, I get maybe one a year so it was definitely a treat. 1d
Avanders @BethM yay I‘m so happy for you! I love pedis .. so relaxing. 😌 1d

#LMPBC #groupv

And now I‘m going to check out and be MIA ‘til tonight...

TK421 Mount Misery looks pretty good. I actually haven't read any of these. 3d
Cathythoughts Love your new pic !! Beautiful 3d
Geeklet Hyperion is very good! It‘s an interesting spin on a Canterbury Tales style of story. Every narrator has a good story to tell. 3d
See All 12 Comments
Avanders @TK421 ok awesome 😁 3d
Avanders @Cathythoughts aww thank you! 🥰 3d
Avanders @Geeklet ok good to know! Sounds great!! Would you agree it fits into the “creature feature” category? 3d
Geeklet @Avanders There‘s definitely a few weird creatures, especially the Shrike. They‘re not the biggest part of the story but they play a very important role in motivating the characters towards their goal. 3d
Avanders @Geeklet sounds like creature feature to me! 😁 thanks! 3d
MaleficentBookDragon I was thinking of doing Mount Misery myself so I vote for that one. 3d
Bklover Any of them are fine with me. I‘ve already read The Watchers, but the rest all look good! (edited) 3d
Avanders @Bklover I think you and @MaleficentBookDragon have both read Watchers already — I‘ll just have to read that on my own time ☺️ I‘m leaning toward Mount Misery 😁 3d
Bklover Sounds good! 3d

Okay #groupv #LMPBC (which I had definitively said I could not do this round 😳🤭)... here are my thoughts on a #creaturefeature at this time... I looked most of these up! I only own 1 of them, but I‘ve read none. 😁

Let me know thoughts!!
@TK421 @MaleficentBookDragon @Bklover @BethM (I‘ve tagged you too, just in case 😉)

BethM @Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon I guess I‘m in 😂I didn‘t think I could be because you all had 4. Can you give me a run down of what to do? Just pick books I have but haven‘t read that fit the theme and then we vote? 4d
Avanders @BethM @MaleficentBookDragon @TK421 @Bklover I don‘t think 5 is much different than 4, and I‘m down with a 5th! I assume Nathan and Missy are cool too?? Plus, that would take us into the cooler months, and it‘ll be fun to be reading these then! And yes, Beth, were just posting ideas now. I‘m not sure if we vote or if we just each pick our book based on whatever comments we get? It‘s up to you all! I‘m cool w whatever. 👏🏽👏🏽 4d
Bklover I read Watchers decades ago but it‘s awesome! Any of them are fine with me! 4d

Bklover And Yay, Beth!!!!! Heck yeah!! 4d
Martyn_J_Pass Triffids!!! Awesome book! 3d
TK421 Watchers and Roanoke Ridge have both got me interested. Welcome to the group @BethM ! 3d
Avanders @Martyn_J_Pass it‘s been on my list for a while!! @bklover sweet! 💃🏽💃🏽 @tk421 awesome, thanks! 👏🏽👏🏽 3d
BethM @TK421 nope. 3d
Avanders @TK421 not me either — looks good! 3d
BethM I‘ve read none. 3d
BethM Do aliens count as creatures? 3d
Avanders I would think so! @MaleficentBookDragon @bklover @tk421 different thoughts? 🤷🏽‍♀️ 3d
TK421 If it's alive, then I guess technically it's a creature. 👽 3d
BethM @TK421 I have a lot of vampires and werewolves which I don‘t think count so I‘m trying to look up books since I don‘t own any 😂 3d
Avanders @BethM hmm 🤔 I don‘t know about vampires 🤷🏽‍♀️ but I think werewolves count! I had to do some “research” too 😁😁 3d
MaleficentBookDragon @BethM werewolves ALWAYS count! I was thinking about The Howling myself. 3d
MaleficentBookDragon @TK421 Is that a book they based The Quiet Place on? It sounds good. 3d
MaleficentBookDragon Ok I just looked up Roanoke Ridge. I vote for that one too! 3d
BethM @MaleficentBookDragon that werewolf one sounds good too! 3d

BethM Omg I totally want to go. 4d
Eggs Double play!! I could melt in that chair! 4d
Avanders @BethM It‘s a surprisingly good zoo for this city! They also do weekly concerts at the zoo, so you can wander around and listen to music while visiting animals. My friend and I saw Indigo Girls that way in ~2005. ♥️ 4d
Avanders @Eggs lol always fun to double up 😁 I *do* melt in the chair. It was *such* the right choice for me 🥰🥰 4d
ravenlee The Omaha Zoo has free-roaming peacocks, too - and they get a little aggressive when they want food. We learned that when my then-toddler was snacking on those puff things and it turns out the peacocks like them, too! Throw them and run! 4d

Bottom right fan art is my favorite. 😁 I thoroughly enjoyed this dark urban fantasy heist story! It‘s the first in a duology, & though I usually prefer my series installments to have completeness in themselves, I nonetheless loved the way this one ended. Kaz is the ultimate antihero and I can‘t wait to read more set in the Grishaverse! 4.5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟💫

(I also can‘t wait to see it on Netflix!)

Oh ps: #SFMBC on its way to you @cobwebmoth !

HOTPock3tt Can I read it by itself or do I need to start with shadow and bone? 6d
Avanders @HOTPock3tt I haven‘t read any of the Shadow and Bone books yet, so you can definitely read it without them... there‘s a little world-building in the beginning, but it picks up quite a bit of pace after that! 6d
cobwebmoth Thanks!😘 Also, love your new profile pic!❤ 6d

▪️ blankets, pillows, other stuffies

Mommamanzi @MommyOfTwo @Avanders and @BethM yes we will so do another round. Maybe take a summer break.This time around it will be by invite only (of for people we personally know) we had so many drop outs and weird things happen this go around. Beth I‘ll let you know ASAP, with all the drops it made a mess of my brain so idk off the top of my head.❤️ 2w
Avanders @BethM @Mommamanzi @MommyOfTwo yay! 🥳🥳 Summer break works for me ☺️ Sorry about all the added stressors.. it‘s so hard when that happens! If there‘s anything I can do to help, let me know! 🤗♥️😘 2w
BethM @Mommamanzi yay! And let me echo @Avanders if I can help just let me know. 2w
MommyOfTwo @Mommamanzi oh that stinks that there were drop outs. No wonder I felt like it was too soon to be over. A summer break is fine with me too. @BethM I would assume we send our last box in July since Avanders has my book for June it will be sent to me in July 😊 2w
Avanders @MommyOfTwo but I think Tori has *my* book... which goes to Kerri and then Annie before me, so 🤷🏽‍♀️ maybe some books are moving faster than others? Hopefully you can figure it out @Mommamanzi .... drop outs in a rotation can get so confusing! (I recently had to have a check in w the #SFMBC group to make sure we all had the books we were supposed to have! 😅) ♥️♥️ 2w
Mommamanzi Yes, so confusing! Two we sent the books BACK to sender and then two are still in rotation I just can‘t remember whose book was sent back and kept in rotation (thank God for notes!) I currently have two toddlers bouncing off the wall thanks to Dunkin Doughnuts so at nap time I‘ll get y‘all the info! 2w
MommyOfTwo Yea I suppose they would be moving differently depending on where the drop outs were 2w
vkois88 I've forgotten the order... @avanders, I sent your book out for this past month (May), it just took me until the first few days into the month to finish. The one I was supposed to receive for May from Chelle was the one that got damaged in shipping, so I didn't have one to read or to be able to ship out to Kerri for this month. But I think Chelle said she's shipping the one for June out tomorrow. So I honestly have NO clue where we are in rotation 2w
Avanders @Mommamanzi oh wow, that would definitely complicate things! Lol notes always help.. bouncy toddlers not so much 😄😆♥️ @mommyoftwo seems like I might even send you another book (or two?) after I send you yours? I suppose we should just wait until Nicole‘s able to sort things 😁😁 I should be sending the 6/7 book out tomorrow, though! @vkois88 sounds like perfect timing! I think the one that was damaged was replaced? In any event, I‘m just 👇🏽 2w

I haven‘t heard of either of these cozy e-books — & I can‘t wait to read ‘em! ♥️♥️♥️ I‘ve also been in a cozy mood lately! hopefully I can get to them soon... Brightened my week!! 🥰🥰🥰

On a related note, today, I stupidly committed to reading a non-fiction law book (which I bought and *do* want to read... some day 😁) w a boss at work. Sigh. 😕 So, maybe next month I‘ll have time. 🤞🏽🤞🏽

MaleficentBookDragon You're welcome! I got them too. We should chat when we've both read them. 4w

Life in the dessert doesn‘t often bring enough rain (for this pluviophile). But it‘s been a gray week and a very rainy morning. It. Is. Glorious. 💙🌧⛈🌧💙 (Pic is a view of a corner of our backyard .. flowers courtesy of prior owner.)

I finished this book last night in a long sprint. I found it frustrating and a bit overdone, but nevertheless entertaining and quick paced. Overall 🌟🌟🌟. See Goodreads for full review (link in profile).

Christine I still miss Orphan Black!! 1mo
Avanders @BethM If it‘s made right, it‘s amazing. You could probably do it? You‘d need steamed milk, strong earl grey tea, and vanilla syrup.... 🤤🤤🤤 I‘m drinking one right now... (from local coffee shop that makes the best London fogs I‘ve ever had). If you try one from Starbucks, just know that that‘s about 50/50 ... they‘re not amazing. 😔 1mo

Trying a repost on the computer -- it's easy! But also, when you try to change the book it just *deletes* your already-written text, without warning! 😨

And I know it's no longer Wednesday, but #woundrouswednesday all the same (thanks for the tag @mollyanna !)

1. It must be well told! 🌈

Read in part as e-book ARC (Advanced Readers Copy received for free in exchange for an honest review) and in part as audio book (1.5x speed).

Beautiful, heartbreaking, brilliant. Both the story and its telling. Left me a little bereft.

This was exactly what I needed. A cozy mystery set in gorgeous Virginia (which I can attest to), with a great protagonist, a strong family, good friends, a good mystery, a mild sort of background romance, and a little (big) something extra. I will definitely be continuing.
🌟🌟🌟🌟

On a completely unrelated note, @MommyOfTwo your next #coffeebeanbookclub #cbbc package is in the mail! (I forgot to take a pic)

Avanders @BethM PS did I already tell you to listen to the first books of this series *on audio*? I listen at 1.5 speed (bc it almost always sounds weirdly slow at regular speed 😆)... and definitely recommend. Then I read the 3rd on paper... and bought the 4th on kindle. 😁 (edited) 2mo
BethM This book has a lot of set up so if you like it rad the others as they get much better. I have it on my tbr so you must have mentioned it. Currently trying to figure out some audio options as my library is pitiful and audible is only one a month. 2mo
Avanders @BethM good to know! I already bought the second in this series 😁😁 That sucks! Have you looked into hoopla? Or Scribd? A few of my coworkers used scribd for free audio 😁 2mo
