The Blind | A. F. Brady

When I first heard about this book last year I planned to read it, but I kept putting off checking it out of the library. I finally got it and started reading it the other night. I don't know right now where the story will go. 🤷‍♀️

Maisie Dobbs: A Novel | Jacqueline Winspear
post image

I picked up these two books from the library this morning. I read A Man Callef Ove last year, but I need to reread it for book club. I bought one of the Maisie Dobbs books at a book sale, but then I heard that you should read them in order, so I got the first one.

rretzler Maisie Dobbs is one of my favorite series. The first couple of books are a little different in tone than the rest of the series, so if you enjoy them right away, fantastic! But if you‘re on the fence for some reason, don‘t give up - the series is worth it. I have a couple of friends who felt that way, but kept reading and now love the series. Happy reading😀 4mo

This book has nothing to do with spring, but I am enjoying it on the first day of spring. I put up this wreath a few weeks ago to help get rid of winter. The snow is melting and the temps are getting better, so it must be working?

I've been working at the library for almost a year and a half and I just today discovered a cart with arcs that employees can take. They in an area that I don't always go to and I never gave the cart much thought until something about it caught my eye today. I don't know if it's a good thing that I found out about it because now I'll be bringing even more books home.

My son turned 13 in December and while he could be worse, he is definitely acting like a teenager. I saw this book when it first came out and I thought that any insights into dealing with the teenage years would be helpful.

Instead of just picking up The Hiding Place, which was on hold at the library, I decided to take a quick look at the new releases. I found Unmarriageable and also Dead Woman Walking on Playaway. It's not like I didn't just buy a stack of books last weekend. 😜🤪📚

I went book shopping for the first time this year yesterday. I know I own lots of books already that I need to read, but when one store is having a sale and another sends you a coupon, it's hard to not to take advantage of that. I also sold some books, so the top three books in the stack only cost me $3.

Tomigirl44 I haven‘t read any of her books but she‘s on my list - I keep seeing her name everywhere and in my book club every person enjoys her books (and that‘s unusual for them) - I‘ll add this one to my list, although I believe I‘ll want to read them in order - is that true? Does each build or continue on the previous one? 8mo
