Storytime for Jasper and Frankie 😁. I‘ve had this on my TBR shelf for a while. Excited to start it today.
I‘ve read some pretty great Christie books lately, but this one disappointed me when I read it during the #24in48 readathon. It has all the makings of a great mystery: a poisoned dart, set on an airplane, the murder of a money lender who blackmails clients, all right under Poirot‘s nose. Despite all that, I didn‘t care enough to be interested in who did it. Also, there‘s casual racism in all Christie‘s novels, but this one was especially gross.
Just finished Columbine and am now calling it a night for #24in48 . I finished 2 books, 1 audiobook and started a couple others books. I didn‘t make 24 hours, but I‘m pretty happy with my time.
Sunday afternoon reads. I‘m a little more than halfway through Columbine, and although it‘s a difficult subject to read about, I‘m finding it interesting and informative. It‘s very well written and well researched. Taking a short break from it to start Sad Cypress now.
Sunday night reading with Frankie for company.
These are my first book purchases of the year. I‘m wanting to read more nonfiction this year. Started the tagged book last night. #bookmail
Unfortunately, it‘s back to work for me tomorrow, so I spent my last day off finishing up this. It reads like a rom com and is completely wonderful.
It would be WAY too hard for me to choose a best of list this year considering all the books I‘ve discovered and loved in 2018. I liked nearly all the books I read this year, rating all but six 3 stars or above. I will give a shout out to Lonesome Dove, though, for becoming a new all-time favorite.
For the last few years I have been using journals to track my reading and review books. Each year I buy a different one and since my current journal only has 2 more pages, it was time for another. This came in the mail today and I love it. It has a gorgeous soft cover, a table of contents, 100 pages for reviews, a checklist of 100 top fiction books, and a loan record. My only criticism is I wish it had spirals and more than one page for notes.
It‘s a rainy day in my part of Texas, giving me the perfect excuse to stay in and read all day.
My bookish Christmas haul. I got ALL 7 Harry Potter shirts from @outofprint , but some have been worn already and are not pictured.
Cuddling with Jasper today while trying in get in one last holiday read of the season. Merry Christmas! Hope everyone is having a pleasant day. 🎄❤️
I loved Mattie‘s courage and spunk. I‘m not a big fan of westerns, but after reading Lonesome Dove earlier this year, I felt compelled to give this one a try. So glad I did, loved it!
I haven‘t been posting much on Litsy, but I have been doing some reading here and there. I‘ll have to catch up on posting what I‘ve read. I finished this on my kindle today and really enjoyed it. I love that I randomly picked this one which happens to be set during Christmas time. It‘s not a big part of the story, but it is mentioned.
Enjoying some Sunday afternoon reading time with Jasper.
Another rainy day weekend reading session with the boys.
