This is only my second Backman but I‘m looking forward to reading more. He can really make you feel for every character he writes. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is my #bookspin. Now on to my #doublespin. @TheAromaofBooks
Look what I got! I was a #bookspinbingo winner and received this beauty from @TheAromaofBooks !!! Thank you so much! You are the best! It was at the top of my wish list. #bookmailisthebestmail #thisweekinnewbooks
First book of the year and once again I‘m pretty sure it will be my favorite of the year. (Happened last year, too with Leave the World Behind) In fact this one is going on the FAVORITES OF ALL TIME list! What a book. I hated for it to end, as evidenced by the 10 days it took me to complete it.
Special thank you to @TheSpineView who sent this book to me in a special Litsy swap package.
Two kindle bargains, one Litsy swap and one #BOTM. #TBR
So far in the new year I have acquired 4 new books but have not finished reading even one. I‘ve been reading A Gentleman In Moscow all week. Its so wonderful that I kind of don‘t want it to end. But other books are waiting!
Yay! This book was top of my list! The hot cocoa is perfect for this snowy day! But I don‘t know who to thank! I just have the last name of Frazier on the package. I don‘t see a Litsy handle anywhere. I tried to do some detective work but there are too many Fraziers on Litsy 😜. Who sent this lovely swap?
Thank you @bookish_wookish for organizing!
Well, I didn‘t do very well on last year‘s goal to read books that have been on my shelf for a long time. I read one. But I did well with my overall goal (93 of 65) and my nonfiction goal (17 of 12). So here‘s the plan for 2022. Wish me luck! #2022Goals
Thank you so much, Chelle! I can‘t wait to read this series and the chocolate looks yummy. I‘ve never heard of Gertrude Hawk chocolates but can‘t wait to try it. Also, thank you for hosting the swap! I hope you have a wonderful evening of reading and chocolate, too! Merry Christmas 🎄🎁 🤶
It came! The name on the package is not leading me to a user name to tag so that will have to wait for opening day. Which isn‘t long now. #JolabokaflodSwap
#ThisWeekinNewBooks : This week‘s report includes Christmas presents! (We exchanged with my family early because my nephew is coming home and he‘s not vaccinated. So no get togethers with him. ) Four books from my sister, the cookbook from my SIL (she actually visited The Merchantile in the summer!), a kindle bargain , and the tagged book was a present from me to me.
These are my favorite Anne Rice books. I never continued the Lestat series and was surprised to hear there are 13 books in the series. Ironically I just donated the Rice books I still owned to my local library sale. They sat on my shelf for years but I‘d be looking at them now if I still had them.
Current reading situation. Holiday vibe! And it‘s snowing! #tistheseason
#ThisWeekinNewBooks : I browsed at the library and picked out three books that sounded good that I‘ve never heard of, like back in the day; on the way out bought 2 used books; 2 #BOTM. Let‘s hope wishing on a star really does help me get thru my #TBR
A note on the tagged book: I‘ve heard it‘s about an old curmudgeon and I love an old curmudgeon! The first line says he‘s 59! I guess he‘s just a curmudgeon because 59 is not old!
The halls are decked. #tistheseason
🦃 Dorothy Dunnett (always), Rosamund Picher (I‘m re-reading), Taylor Jenkins Reid (a current auto buy)
🦃 I can think of so many! Many from Harry Potter, so I guess I‘ll go with Nearly Headless Nick (although Moaning Myrtle and Luna Lovegood were right up there.)
🦃 Tagged book
Wishing a very Happy Thanksgiving to you, @Eggs and to all the Littens!
