Valentine's Day is quickly approaching & my goal is to only read romance books for the foreseeable future (excluding my current true crime book club pick of course). I have loved this authors previous books & am excited to see her step into the paranormal romance genre (one of my genres of choice).

5 out of 8 so far.

I am trying so hard to get the whole set but I keep getting sent the wrong covers. Just need Fragile Things, Smoke & Mirrors, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane to finish out the set.

Being a book collector & looking for specific covers/editions is hard sometimes.

Ok let's do this!! Looking forward to knocking some of my backlogged ebooks (which there is a bunch) off of my kindle.

The 1st numbers drawn were 12, 14, 17, & 18 and I can definitely get behind those picks.

The Tommyknockers | Stephen King
post image
Mehso-so

Not my favorite but definitely not the worst one of his I have read...yet. The one thing that really saved it for me was all of the easter eggs to his other works. It is always fun stumbling across them and as I read more of his work I am finding more of them scattered throughout. The King Universe strikes again!!

It's not the same size (ToD is the same way) & it is driving me nuts. My sister gifted me her paperbacks because she wanted all hardcover & let me tell you trying to complete the set for a reasonable price is near impossible so I opted for the international edition ( because then it semi matches) but may be regretting my choice 😩

Ok let's see how Stephen King tackles aliens 🤔👽. Basically going into this book blind but I have heard it isn't one of his better books so I don't really have high hopes.

You know it is cold when A.) I actually turn up my heat (I am always hot so it it usually set at 64). And B.) I dig out the fingerless gloves for reading. I am so over winter!!

Follow.my.read -6 here, windy with a -28 windchill! Not wearing gloves, but definitely using my heated throw!!! 1mo
jackilynn @Follow.my.read heated throw....I forgot I have one of those too. Now I just need to remember where I put it last winter 🤔🤦‍♀️ 1mo

1. Depends on when I am reading. If it is in the morning it is usually coffee. Otherwise it is usually water. During the colder months I like hot chocolate or hot cider.

2. I just finished the tagged book this morning between rounds of shoveling my driveway. Now onto a new book during this somewhat lazy snowday.

TheSpineView I hate shoveling. Snow is a four letter word. 😂 2mo
jackilynn @TheSpineView after 3 rounds of shoveling/snow blowing before it got to dark to see snow is definitely a four letter word lol 2mo

Since I don't anticipate finishing my current read before the year is over (it is 800+ pages & I just started it) it is stat time. I read less books this year than previously but I also read more chunksters (500+ pages) than normal so...

tpixie Great job! What‘s the app on the right? Oh - a website! (edited) 2mo
jackilynn @tpixie the one on the right is from a website myyearinbooks.com. It analyzed my Goodreads shelves and broke everything down. It actually gave me a lot more information this was just the infographic that was available to download. 2mo
tpixie @jackilynn and a lot easier to do than StoryGraph - you just need to input Goodreads!! I‘m finishing up 2 books & then will try it- thanks! 😊 2mo

Here's hoping I finish this one tonight. It has been a quick read (when I actually pick it up) but I just haven't felt like reading lately.

October wrap up.

My goal for the month was to read spooky books and I think I succeeded.

Favorite: If We Were Villians

Least Favorite: Best of Luck

Now, on to some more light & fluffy books as a bit of a palette cleanser (well after I finish the 1 spooky book I still have).

post image

August=Dark Academia

I head to to school (aka work) in just a few days so I thought what better time to pick up these books.

I have read Ninth House before (I love all things Leigh Bardugo) but I thought it would be the perfect pick for my book club this month so...time for a reread.

***more thoughts in comments***

jackilynn Of the authors collected in this anthology I believe I have only read Olivie Blake (Atlas Six) but I am eager to see how others approach the Dark Academia genre. Who knows, maybe I will find a new author who's backlist I need to check out. 7mo

Pure nostalgia!! I watched most of these shows in high school/college and now I kind of want to rewatch them. Much like when I was watching these shows...I laughed & I cried while reading this book but I wouldn't change one thing.
