I liked the twists and turns in this novel, and the alternating viewpoints really added to the story.

I was taking my #audiowalk yesterday, lost in the tagged book, when I looked up and saw all this stuff in a tree. So weird.

I just don‘t like anyone in this book.

Patchshank I know what you mean. I made it about a third of the way into the book before I gave up. I was just bored with it. 3d
CarolynM I agree, they were all awful. I finished the book, I wanted to know what would happen. I quite enjoyed being interested in the story without caring what good or harm came to any of the characters. 2d

I decided to finish #bfcr3 with a bang today. A hike plus yard work have me counting down the minutes until I can get into bed with my book. It‘s been a good week- I was sick as a dog last weekend but am bouncing back with some healthy eating and self care.

Out of the eight books I listened to while active this round the tagged book is by far my favorite.

Stay well bfcers. See you next time!

wanderinglynn So glad to hear you‘re feeling better. And great job! Way to go! 🙌🏻 6d

I‘ve been re-reading this series off and on, and I think this is the one when they really got good. They‘re all good mysteries, but in this one relationships start to form between the inspectors and the villagers, and that, to me, is what really makes this series.

bookishdawg This is my favorite one ❤️ 1w

This book had plenty of strategies for helping pre-teen and teenage girls deal with stress. It‘s something I‘ll keep in mind as my daughter grows, and for myself since no one was talking about this kind of stuff when I was a kid.

Note: hopefully now that I am done with this book I can get the song out of my head.

Bad reading day. Had to put one book aside because the violence was too much, got 4% in on the tagged book and realized I had read it, tried to listen to my audiobooks but realized I forgot my ear buds. I hate it when I waste my commutes.

I loved this book. Most series become repetitive or absurd over time. Louise Penny‘s inspector Gamache series just keeps getting better. (I cried.) If you‘re new to this series start at the beginning!

For the first fifty pages of this book I didn‘t like the main characters, and wasn‘t sure if I would finish. I kept going because it was an #arc and I wanted to give it a chance. After that the story was so powerful, and the characters‘ journeys were so emotional that I couldn‘t put it down. An engrossing book with a satisfying ending. I can‘t wait to read more by this author.

Halfway through #bfcr3 and I finally hit my 100k step goal! I‘ve been on vacation this week, so those steps came in some pretty amazing places. I‘m still at 2/6 books, but only have 15 minutes left in my current one. Looking forward to getting back to my regular diet next week. I am so sick of eating out, and my fingers are all swollen from the salt. Have a great week everyone!

I was stuck in my chair for 12 hours today, but fixed that with a whiffle ball game with the kids, and a walk after dinner. I have been switching between Harry Truman and Louise Penny today. Truman to keep my brain active during repetitive work, and Penny for comfort. #litsywalkers #bfcr3

Yesterday I hiked 5 miles and felt like I could have done 5 more. Today I could barely make it on my two mile neighborhood loop. Blame the humidity I guess.

I am loving my re-read of On Writing and feeling sad that it‘s almost over. I also spent some time audiocooking yesterday so I‘ll have plenty of healthy bone strengthening foods on hand for the week.
