Marigolds and Murder | London Lovett

Book 16 complete for the #30booksin3months challenge. Marigolds And Murder was good. This is my first time being in a book club on YouTube so I feel like this group will work out better for me since I got tired of reading intellectually stimulating stuff every month. This won‘t be the last cozy mystery book I read. It was so much fun to read.

I added more ebooks to my spreadsheet that I started to keep track of my Kindle books last night. 2014 was when I started acquiring ebooks. On February 7, 2014, my father passed away. I understand why I acquired so many ebooks in March 2014. I was having a hard time coping with my dad‘s death so I used book buying as a coping mechanism. They were all free. I don‘t even remember buying a lot of them.

This is my review for this book that I reviewed for the website www.booktasters.com I was struggling to get through this one but I tried my best. This book is called The Lakeside and it‘s by William Schumpert. I tried to search for this book on Litsy but it‘s not on here. It‘s on Amazon and it‘s available only on Kindle for $2.99 but I‘m not buying the ebook because I didn‘t like it that much.

Pickpick

This is my review for #theunreadshelfproject2019‘s August challenge of letting Bookstagram choose a book for me to read in August. The choices were The Mermaid or Conversations With Friends. Bookstagram made a good decision. I like books with Mermaids in them and I like retellings. The rule of the challenge for this month is to read the book Bookstagram chooses for you to read or you have to unhaul it. Now, I don‘t have to unhaul this book.

I enjoyed reading this book. It seemed like it took a long time to read this. I‘m going to take a break and read shorter books before starting A Feast For Crows.

I‘m on page 762 out of 973 pages.
I‘m almost finished reading #astormofswords for the #catchupgot readalong. This book is heavy. I‘ve been carrying it back and forth to the day program every week in my purse and it makes my purse heavy but I‘m enjoying this book. I made a lot of progress yesterday. Maybe I can make some progress today but I don‘t know if I will get finished.

My pre order for #lifeandotherinconveniences arrived today. This book was released this week. I haven‘t read any of her books yet but I‘ve heard that they‘re good and the cover for this book is so cute. I quit my book club recently because it wasn‘t working out for me but this would have been a good book to recommend to them because they were choosing thought provoking books to read every month which was fine but I got tired of it.

This is a tweet that George R.R. Martin wrote recently on Twitter.
I would like to read this book sometime. I just read what it‘s about on Goodreads. It sounds interesting. I‘m just not in the mood for another Fantasy book right now. I‘m in the middle of his #asongoficeandfire series.

I‘ve done all the challenges for #theunreadshelfproject2019 so far. I made a post in July asking Bookstagram to pick a book for me to read in August so I did that and the winner was The Mermaid by Christina Henry so I‘m going to try my best to read it this month. The rule is to read it this month or get rid of it. I‘m not going to get rid of it if I don‘t read it this month. I‘m just going to add it to next month‘s TBR.

This is how I did in July on #theunreadshelfproject2019.⁣

I read 8 books. ⁣

📚1 ebook⁣
📚3 audiobooks from Audible ⁣
📚4 physical books off of my book shelf ⁣

I unhauled 3 of the physical books I read. I kept 1. ⁣

On my birthday in July using a gift card, I acquired 3 new books.

This is the first Goodreads Giveaway I won. I‘ve been winning giveaways ever since then. I‘ve slowed down on entering them a little bit just because I‘m taking a break but this summer, I started entering them again and so far, I‘ve won only 1 but it was an ebook. I think winning a physical book is more fun but I don‘t have a problem with winning an ebook. I still haven‘t read this ebook. I‘ve owned it for 4 years. I don‘t know anything about it.

Fierce Females⁣. I‘m currently reading the series #asongoficeandfire for the #catchupgot readalong that is happening on Twitter with the #catchupbookclub. I‘m in the middle of reading the third book #astormofswords and I‘m almost finished with it. I‘m already finished watching the tv show #gameofthrones so I‘m caught up on that. ⁣There‘s a lot of strong females in this book series and the tv show.

My Kindle is in this picture with the stack of books I want to read because I have some ebooks I started reading and I need to finish them. I haven‘t started listening to #valleyofthedolls yet because the first chapter is 6 hours long and I feel like I need to give it 6 hours of my undivided attention so I‘m probably going to start listening to it this weekend. Hopefully, I can make progress and get one of these books finished.

This spreadsheet has books I‘ve read starting with letters of the alphabet this year for the #atozbookchallenge. So far, I haven‘t read books starting with the letters F, G, H, Q, U, V, X, Y, Z. I didn‘t know that this challenge was around. I‘ve almost read books for every letter of the alphabet. I‘m about to start listening to the audiobook of #valleyofthedolls which will be a good book to read starting with the letter V.

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐨𝐲 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤 is a reread that I picked from my rereads jar but books 3 and 4 will be read for the first time because I didn‘t know that this was a series when I bought the first 2 books a long time ago. ⁣

I will finish the 𝐑𝐮𝐛𝐲 𝐎𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 this year because there‘s only 4 books in it and they‘re short so it won‘t take me long to read them at all.

I crocheted this spa cloth using the pattern that is in this picture from this booklet. I‘m using a book to hold open the booklet. I like the colors I used for this. I‘m a beginner at crocheting. ⁣As I was working on this, I forgot what row I was working on and I had to try to focus and remember where I was before. I got frustrated and I wanted to give up but I kept going. ⁣I made this in the Sewing class at my day program.

I‘m posting a spreadsheet I‘ve started to keep track of my ebooks I have on my Kindle using the #googlesheets app on my phone. I could use my laptop but this is easier for me to do because I‘m not on my laptop that much and I like the option of not having to be on the computer to make spreadsheets. This is going to take a long time for me to type all of this in because I have a lot of ebooks.

Frenemies. The #asongoficeandfire series has frenemies in it. I started reading the series in January and I‘m reading the third book #astormofswords right now. I‘ve finished watching the tv show so I‘m just reading the books now and because I watched the tv show, I‘m finding the books easier to understand. #astormofswords is 973 pages. This picture summarizes this series.

Lady_Tigana_20 It took me 1 year and 2.5 months to complete. I averaged around 2 to 2.5 months until I got to book 5. That one dragged out over four months. I remember I wanted it counted on my 2017 GOODREADS Reading Challenge, so I just pushed through. Finished it the last day of 2017. 😂 Loved first three. Liked the 4th. Didn‘t care for the 5th. Desperately want book 6 to be out. The optimist in me says he might live to write book 7. The pessimist says nope. 4w

I‘ve just now decided to participate in this summer reading challenge started by Jessica Brody called #30booksin3months. Since June 1, I‘ve read 12 books. The 12th book I read recently was a reread for me and it‘s called #theboyfriendlist by #elockhart. I plan to reread the second book and finish off the rest of the books in the series. It‘s just so much fun.

I can relate to this. My birthday was on July 9 and I got a gift card so I bought some books and I pre ordered another book that will be released in August. Tomorrow, I‘m receiving 2 books in the mail and then I‘m receiving 1 on Saturday. I also added my Membership card to my Barnes & Noble account recently so I can start using my Membership card as well. I haven‘t been a member for very long. It only costs $25 a year.

On Goodreads, I found a list of books with characters who have superpowers. These all look really good. I haven‘t read them. I thought the book Red Queen was an Alice In Wonderland retelling but I just looked it up online and it‘s not. On Amazon, it says,”Red Queen, by #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Aveyard, is a sweeping tale of power, intrigue, and betrayal, perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones series.”

This is my reading progress for this book. I made a lot of progress yesterday. I started this book 2 months ago. I probably started in May or June. July is almost over and I‘m still going to be reading it for awhile. On Twitter, I‘m participating in the #catchupgot readalong with the #catchupbookclub.

Magical Systems. On Goodreads, I found a list of some books with Magical Systems. This is only a couple of them. I haven‘t read these books but I‘ve heard that they‘re good. I‘ve seen that people have been complaining because Patrick Rothfuss hasn‘t finished the #kingkillerchronicle series yet. I‘d like to read the first book but I‘m going to wait for awhile because I‘m already in the middle of a Fantasy series right now that I like.

IvoryLunatic Apart from Harry Potter, The Kingkiller Chronicles are my number one favorite fantasy series. I think he‘s built such a good world and love the characters. But yes. I do wish he would get on with the next book. 1mo
