Meant to start this book today, but Mia is just too darn cute and not napping much today! Hoping that means she will take a long nap this afternoon and I can start!! 📖

Forgot to take a picture before, but our #lmpbc book is on the way to you @BennettBookworm !! They put a bunch of stamps on it at the post office so the envelope looks a little crazy 😜

Well, I just couldn‘t make it. I don‘t even know what is happening and I really did not want to bail on a #lmpbc book...I just had to! I don‘t know how you powered through @LiteraryinLititz and @Mem_ugh and I‘m sorry I couldn‘t make it. I feel bad about bailing, but I found myself not even writing notes because I‘m like...what is even going on!?! I‘ll be sending it on to @BennettBookworm soon!! ❤️❤️❤️

LiteraryinLititz Hey, I don‘t blame you AT ALL. 😋 Life‘s too short to read books you‘re not into! Sorry I picked a dud this time! 2w

Mehso-so

I‘m so torn on this book. Parts of it I was so into - the storyline really hooked me in places and I wanted to know what would happen! However, I was not a fan of the way it was laid out. It seemed to jump around. All of a sudden you would get to the end of a chapter where it would say a time period - every time I questioned if it was before or after the last section. Sometimes the next section was different characters and I‘d be like ???

The book is based on the true story of Constance Kopp - I enjoyed following her crime solving adventures 😁 Sending to @minkyb soon! @Carolyn11215 @Kappadeemom

I am really enjoying this book so far...right now it is even better because I can read it outside while enjoying Garrett‘s caramel and cheese mix popcorn ❤️

kstadt929 @Kayla.Adriena My husband goes to Chicago once a month for work and he almost always finds time to get to Garrett‘s and bring some goodies home for me...this time they stayed in a different hotel and he walked 15 minutes between his meetings to get it ❤️ What kind did you have? The caramel and cheese mix is my favorite 1mo

2️⃣ Relax and recoup days! On Saturday, we have a home visit to adopt a puppy! 🐶 After the home visit we get to schedule a time to meet a puppy they are holding for us!!!! We can‘t wait to meet her soon and (if all goes according to plan) bring her home with us! ❤️

Jet lag is real guys! I was up for 26 hours getting home from Rome yesterday and was completely exhausted when we finally got home at 1 am (my body still thought it was 8 am!) Yet I only slept for 3 hours! And I have been crazy productive today getting groceries, unpacking our suitcases and cleaning our house! I have a feeling once I sit down I‘ll crash. Anyway, this book had perfect timing arriving today (our first day back home). Starting soon!

LiteraryinLititz Welcome home! Not sure this is the best homecoming present, based on the 2 of us who read it before you, but hopefully it‘ll strike you differently! 1mo
TheNerdyProfessor I really loved this one. It was also on President Obama's favorite reads for the year when it came out. Enjoy! 1mo

Just finished at the airport...This is the third book my husband and I read together during our 2 week honeymoon! It was by far the best! It kept me guessing, on the edge of my seat and I loved the unique story line. I was reading this one every chance I could get. Now we have about 4 more hours until we board... 🛫

Side note: I love the feature on the Kindle now that shows what books you have read!!

cherinium Is that a new feature on the kindle? I am poorly organized and sometimes get overwhelmed looking through my kindle titles trying to remember what I have read. The little banner that tells what percentage of a particular book has been read is nice, but I've noticed that it is not always right. I've had some books with 0% that I absolutely remember reading. I don't know if has anything to do with moving to or from cloud storage. It's frustrating! 1mo
kstadt929 @cherinium Yes, it is new and I LOVE it! I have often wished I could sort the books I have finished, but still have on my kindle. It is a great feature! 1mo

Finished on our patio tonight! This one started off strong and lost me somewhere in the middle...I was definitely disappointed because Finder is one of my favorite authors. This one just became so unbelievable and hard to follow at times. I enjoyed the writing style, but the story line wasn‘t as good as I was expecting. This view did make it a little better ❤️

I really wanted to love this book - Coben is one of my favorite authors and my husband and I have been reading it together on our honeymoon. However, I just couldn‘t get into this one. The beginning drew me in and then it kind of fell flat. I didn‘t enjoy the ending. It was unbelievable and just disappointing. There were a few parts where I wanted to find out what would happen, but when I did it left me asking...really? Gotta love my view though!

Seems like I‘m in the minority with this one...but this was a real rough read for me. I did not enjoy the writing style or connect with the characters. Honestly it would have been a bail if it was not a #lmpbc book. Mailing out tomorrow or Tuesday to you @BennettBookworm ! Hopefully you and @LiteraryinLititz will enjoy it more than me and @Mem_ugh !! 📖
