#Booked2019
I read this for #Booked2019 #foodorbeverageoncover
It‘s a romance, which I don‘t read many of anymore but it was pure enjoyment. The author‘s depiction of Americans make us all sound like a bunch of idiotic buffoons but the story was lovely and I‘d happily read another by this author. (Of course there ARE Americans that are idiotic buffoons but hopefully we aren‘t all that way!)

SLUMP. I am in a slump. I‘m currently reading Where The Crawdads Sing and a few others I am meandering through. I may wait on WTCS because I love it and I can‘t give it my full attention. This is all I read in April, the Achebe being the best. I also enjoyed The Golden Hour, but was not impressed with the Genova book. Hoping for a much more productive May!

JanuarieTimewalker13 It happens. I‘m slogging through Bag of Bones, and I also feel like I‘m totally unmotivated in other areas of life. I feel like it could be bc here in NJ, it seems as though Spring is on hold. So I‘ve put my whole life on hold. Strange. (edited) 4w

Mehso-so

Definitely not her best. While I imagine her portrayal of Huntington‘s Disease is deadly accurate, I found the rest of the book to be a bit tedious. Four adult kids (who all still live at home?!?!) trying to decide whether or not to find out if they carry the gene that will give them HD. I did learn a lot about this horrific disease, but overall was a bit disappointed.

Thank you so much @WilliamMorrowBooks for this ARC! I loved it- a definite ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Three time periods, with the largest portion taking place in the Bahamas during WWII. Loved the characters and found the story fascinating. I did find all the cigarette smoking distracting a bit, but that‘s my only complaint. Looking forward to her next book!

#WhatWouldYouDo
1. Tagged
2. Back to the start. I wait a long time for her books!
3. Several books ago in this series the author killed off one of my favorite characters. I‘d definitely undo that!
4. @Rissreads @CoffeeNBooks @Reecaspieces

rretzler I love the George‘s Thomas Lynley series. And I totally agree with you about Helen! I‘m curious to know what you think of the one you‘re reading now. I enjoyed it (because it‘s George and I waited so long), but I thought that Lynley acted differently than he used to - he did and said things that i thought were uncharacteristic of him. I‘m curious as to what others who like the series think. 2mo
Bklover @rretzler Oh, this is one of those times I love Litsy! I‘m so glad to find someone who was upset about Helen! I was so mad I skipped the next two books in the series (and still haven‘t read them). I‘m not too far into this one, so I‘ll let you know what I think. I‘ve been reading George for years, and always wait for the paperbacks since they are such chunksters. (I may have to give in and read the ones I missed sometime!) 2mo
rretzler Too funny! I skipped the next book too (What Came Before He Shot Her), but I‘ve read all the rest. I don‘t think I‘ll ever read that one, but I did read the one after and while it was weird, I‘m glad I did. The series certainly changed after With No One As Witness. What other mystery series like that do you read? 2mo
Bklover @rretzler I like Maisie Dobbs-haven‘t read them all though. I also like Tana French. There are a lot of series that I‘ve read a couple of. I used to be in a mystery book group and got introduced to the first in a lot of different series. What are your favorites? By the way, I was looking at your feed and my first job was as a staff auditor at Price Waterhouse. Looooong time ago! (edited) 2mo

The First Lady | James Patterson
post image

At some point years ago I just stopped reading James Patterson. I really enjoyed the early books but he started writing so many books and using a Co-writer and I just lost interest. So I surprised myself when I picked up this one. I think it‘s a stand alone. This has been a really fun read so far and I haven‘t wanted to put it down.
#fridaynightbookclub
Update: Finished! 👍 Cindy will this work for #political intrigue? #Booked2019

rretzler I know what you mean about Patterson. I, too, stopped reading him years ago. With all of his co-writers, it just seemed like a cheap way for him to make a lot of money and I had a hard time supporting that. My mother still buys his books as they come out, though, so I guess we cancel each other out. 😆 2mo

Abandon | Blake Crouch
post image
Pickpick

Well, this did turn out to be a little long, but it was also a very entertaining story, going back and forth from 1893 to 2009, telling similar stories about a ghost town called Abandon. Not really a thriller- I would say more horror, and quite a bit of gore if you‘re squeamish. But I have to say- I really liked it!

Bookdragon69 This was my first Blake Crouch book and I really enjoyed it. (edited) 2mo

I started reading this because it‘s on my kindle app and I could read it in the dark. I‘m to the point where you think everything‘s about to wrap up. It has that “almost over” feel. I looked down at the page number and I‘m only a bit past halfway! What on earth can happen for another 250 pages?! It‘s been really good so far, but not sure it can drag on for that much more!

Bklover @Stacy_31 I did the exact same thing. I have no idea why I didn‘t buy it back then! Hope you guys have a good weekend!❤️❤️ 3mo
Bklover @RainyDayReading it‘s a good one, or at least I thought it was when I read it years ago. Got it because this was the cover I had! 3mo
Bklover @BarbaraBB Thanks! Not sure when I‘ll get to them but they sounded interesting! Happy Friday! 3mo
Bklover @robinb I didn‘t remember the Dana Girls until I saw the book! 3mo
Bklover @Hollie Sounds like Snow is a tough read! 3mo
Stacy_31 @Bklover I just found it at our library's book sale. 😂😂 Made sure to get it this time! Hope you have a good weekend, also! 3mo
Bklover Oh, that‘s amazing!!! What are the odds?! ❤️❤️ @Stacy_31 3mo
Rachel_nyc Snow is fantastic! If you end up enjoying it, also check out My Name is Red by same author. 3mo

1. Fiction. I like to wander.
2.Tagged book. Outstanding.
3. Biology. (Loved chemistry though)
4. To be honest, I wouldn‘t actually want to live in any period where there are no antibiotics and indoor plumbing. As far as books, I like reading about early U.S. history. Pioneers!
5. New Littens- join in!

Thanks again @Reecaspieces ❤️

rubyslippersreads I agree—just because I love reading about the past doesn‘t mean I want to live without modern conveniences. 😁 3mo
Kerrioke Ohh, big fan of the tagged book. Makes me want to try some of his other ones! 3mo
SailorMoon Thanks for playing!!! 💕🤟🏻🌙 and OMG point 4... you are sooo right!!! 3mo

This is a nice short book about a reader and her feelings about reading and books. We probably would all enjoy it, just as a reminder that there are others like us out there. Light, fun, short. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cinfhen I agree! Short & sweet and nice to hold 3mo
Bklover @Cinfhen I‘ll probably delete this, but would it be terribly mean to say that I expected a bit more? 3mo
Cinfhen I felt the same!!! I wasn‘t overly impressed 3mo

Cinfhen And I think as readers we are allowed to have opinions😜😜 3mo
Bklover @Cinfhen Why yes we are! Thank you!😘 (edited) 3mo
Cinfhen I‘m listening to a MUCH MUCH MUCH better book about loving books! The narrator is hilarious and book is sooo funny. Totally recommend 3mo
Bklover @Cinfhen I read that one! I loved it! But now that you mention it, I may have to pull it out for a revisit. Or finish it. I don‘t think I have it marked as read, so I probably got interrupted and didn‘t finish it. You‘re right though. Much better than this one. 3mo
Bklover @Cinfhen I think this one wrapped up Winter for #Booked2019 for me. Let me know if I forgot to post something. 😘 3mo
Cinfhen Yup!!! Congrats 🎉🍾🎈 you‘ve completed the first quarter of #Booked2019 3mo

Bklover @AlaMich They removed it when I was about 13. I‘m not sure how we all kept from getting electrocuted! It was fun though! 3mo

I think it was @Andrew65 that talked about this book, and it turned out I had it in iBooks or something. Anyway, I read it and it reminded me of my good old Maeve Binchy days. It made me wish I could take a vacation and visit these people. Quick, light, enjoyable. Thanks @Andrew65

Andrew65 Love her books. Always great to revisit them. Pleased you enjoyed it. 😊👍 3mo

Trying to decide between these two for my next read. Definitely two different books!!

Mtroiano Can‘t go wrong with Murakami! 3mo
Billypar Wind-Up is one of my all-time favorites 🐦 3mo
Tamra Oh my, both are grrrrrreat!🐯 (edited) 3mo
Tamra This is giving nothing away, but I would have found it helpful to understand going in that Simmons draws upon native mythology to tell his story. 3mo

Hey Littens. Just checking in today. Didn‘t get to read a word today. I‘m at my daughter‘s pep band senior night at the basketball game, and I feel like a green crayon in a box of red crayons. I‘m actually hanging on to the book I have tucked in my purse for security. Love you guys. ❤️❤️❤️
