Good. Shows how much we are reliant on technology and how you should learn to appreciate your life with out it. Nice romance story as well.

For my #AugustArc Readathon my goals from these prompts were to

📚Read your oldest ARC :The Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse
📚Read your newest ARC: The Weekend before the wedding by Tracey Bloom (Well at the time it was, I have since been invited to read a few others)
📚Read a book that is part of a series : The Women of Primrose Square

I have completed this by reading the above books.

Thank you @Clwojick for hosting this.

Good. Follows three women who are having crisis of their own but when they come together they find a way of supporting one another. Full of twists and turns which means that you are on a rollercoaster of emotions and by the end of it makes you feel you know these women like best friends. Thank you #Netgalley for the free copy.

Very good. Full of historical details and facts. Even though the time jumps were a bit disjointed at first I soon got used to it. Another great book by Gill Paul.

Next one in the Buckingham Hotel series! I still haven't read the last one yet 😂 better get on it!

@rockpools

rockpools Ooh, now. This makes me happy. It also reminds me it‘ll be autumn before too long, and we‘ll (hopefully) be wondering what we‘ve been complaining about! (It really is too hot). And I don‘t think I ever read last year‘s either - I wonder if my library has it now. I‘ve been in a bit of a slump and this might be JUST the thing! 2mo

Got this awhile back as it's the published collection of the shorts that were only released on Kindle (I have them on Kindle but as we all know it's nice to have a collected volume if it was available) but I have just found out that it has a short in it that was never officially released as a short but appeared in the Reader's circle edition of the American paperback version of Katherine Howard The Tainted Queen. ⬇️

Birdsong28 The short is called Man of God so it wasn't a waste of money after all!! Love it when things like this happen. 📚📖 2mo

Very good. This is such a good historical fiction retelling of Katherine Howard's life. I didn't know much about her going into the book but now I feel like I have gained a good foundation to do some more research on her life. Carrying on the Six Wives series.

Good. Interesting take on the well known story of Marilyn Monroe's death. It does offer some new insights but even though it claims to have finally solved what went on that night you are still left with a lot unanswered questions and it still feels like just another conspiracy theory.

Treated myself to this book as I have been poorly with COVID and I wanted to cheer myself up. Just look at the pretty edging and it's signed by both the author and approved by the main character! After all the hype on here I just had to see for myself.

KristiAhlers Pretty! I bought a copy yesterday and started it. I‘m enjoying it. Hope you start to feel better. 6mo
marleed Oh I hope you are on a very straight path to recovery. I absolutely love your version of this book! 6mo
Birdsong28 @KristiAhlers @marleed Yes I am ok thank you. Just got a bit of a cough but I am generally ok. Been negative since Friday so that is good. 6mo
