This was an impulse buy on my last trip to my new favorite bookstore. I haven‘t started it yet, but the cover caught my attention and the story sounds intriguing. Have any of you read it? Thoughts?

Starting a book after midnight, when I have plans first thing tomorrow morning. I might regret this, but I‘m doing it anyway. This line is already setting up the vibe of how creepy this book might be: “…eyes so black they were like the tinted windows of a sleek limousine — he could see out, but you couldn‘t see in.”

I‘ve been asking for new bookshelves for my birthday on Saturday. I don‘t think it‘s going to happen, so I decided to buy myself more books to add to my already over flowing bookshelf. Also, I don‘t have little dogs anymore. I have a little one and a big one. I‘m taking suggestions for what my new username should be!

TheBookgeekFrau paws_and_pages or tails _and_tales or printlove (as in paw prints and the printed word) or . . . Yeah, I think my creative inspiration just ran out 😂 but I kind of like paws & pages 6mo
Ruthiella I like “paws and pages” too! 6mo

This beauty was named Harper before she became my fur baby/service dog/constant companion/shadow. I started calling her Harper Lee a few days after that. I figure, if I‘m going to use the name, I should probably at least reread this book and read Go Set A Watchman. 🐕‍🦺📚

TheLudicReader Not sure I would waste my time on Go Set a Watchman given how it came into the world. TKaM is well worth the time, though. 7mo

I took Harper Lee to the bookstore with me for the first time today. One of the tasks she‘s trained to do for me is carry items while walking next to me so I can keep both hands on my crutches and use a hands free leash. She wasn‘t into holding things she isn‘t familiar with today, but walking next to me through the whole bookstore is a step in the right direction. Books probably taste bad anyway. The tagged book is the one I purchased today.

Bklover I enjoyed your tagged book! 9mo
Bklover Oh, and Harper Lee is beautiful!❤️ 9mo
Soubhiville She is beautiful! Maybe if she had a small book bag to carry it would feel better in her mouth than a book? 9mo

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @Soubhiville I‘m working with her on carrying bags. She‘ll hold an empty bag for a few seconds, but nothing with anything in it yet. She‘s great with pill bottles, my phone, my wallet, shoes and socks and her leash. I just brought her home a week ago, after two weeks of intensive training together away from home. Some days it feels like starting over from square one, but she‘s worth it and going to help me so much! 9mo

There were parts of this book that had me totally hooked and parts that seemed to drag on and on. I‘m glad I stuck it out and finished it, but the ending was a little bit of a let down. After all of that action, that‘s it? 🤔 Please tell me I‘m not the only one. I don‘t know exactly what I was expecting, or what would have made it better, but I‘m feeling a little let down.

Traci1 I remember liking the first half or so of this one so much and feeling like the last half was a slog. 11mo
Larkken It felt looong. I liked the eldritch horror but it was over so quick in comparison to the rest of the book lol 11mo
Cassafrass I felt the exact same! I just finished it. The audiobook gave it a little more spark with character voices and sounds but geeeze. It took me 3 days to get through and felt like 3 weeks 10mo

@lynneamch this is the perfect reward after spending my afternoon at the laundromat.

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @lynneamch this is my third. I love it. I took a long break between my first and second round. These last two have been back to back. I hadn‘t even sent the last book from the previous round back to @suvata before starting The Book Haters‘ Book Club. 11mo

@shellleigh33 @lynneamch @BookishPiper Hi everyone! I hope you‘re all enjoying the books we‘ve each started with for this round of #LMPBC. Just wanted to check in before the end of the month because I don‘t remember exchanging information about which order we‘re swapping in or where each of us is sending books. That information came in an email from @suvata in the other 2 rounds of #LMPBC that I‘ve been a part of.

BookishPiper From what I gather, you will send your book to me. I will send mine to @shellleigh33 . She sends her book to @lynneamch who then sends hers to you. 12mo

Today has been a good day. I found a new stylist I can trust with my wild curls.

And of course I had to stop on my way home and buy 2 more books at my usual spot. It‘s been a bit of an expensive day, but I don‘t regret any part of it.

@Bookwormjillk @suvata @vonnie862 #LitsyMarkUpPostalSwap This is a cute story and, as you can see by all of those paper clips, I did have a lot to say as I read it. Maybe it‘s because I‘m also reading and much more interested in Fairy Tale by Stephen King, but I felt myself getting bored several times with this one. Revisiting characters from Waxman‘s other books was fun. This one was just ok.

suvata I haven‘t read any of her books, so I‘m not familiar with any of the characters. Maybe that‘s a plus. 1y

If you had told me just a few years ago that I‘d become a big #StephenKing fan, I would never have believed you. Eye of The Dragon is the only one of his books that I‘ve DNF‘d and I assumed just by the title that this one would be similar. I assumed wrong and in this case I‘m perfectly fine with that. Also, I‘ll be heartbroken if anything happens to the dog. The fact that there‘s a dog in the story is part of what drew me in.

Hubby “scolded” me for buying another book from Amazon instead of waiting until our local bookstore had it. I‘m only a little bit sorry because it got bent almost in half in our mailbox. 😞 Any thoughts on this book and the rest of the series?

NovelGirl82 This has been on my tbr since it came out, but I have t bought it yet! You‘ll have to let me know how it is. And shame on your mail person for bending a book like that! 1y
Branwen I own two different editions of this book because I love it SO MUCH! If you like magic and dark academia then I think you will love it too! 💕 1y
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @Branwen I‘m not completely clear on what dark academia is, but I do love stories that have sort of “magical” element to them. 1y

I had originally planned a much more #bookish tattoo for my birthday. Plans had to change when my artist cancelled 24hrs before my appointment. While it wasn‘t my original plan at all The Order of the Phoenix was a great book and I‘m absolutely in love with this abstract beauty now perched on my arm forever.

My mom is terrible at “summarizing” books she suggests. If she can manage to not give away the ending, I can usually guess just using the information she gives me. She did well enough on this story to actually pique my interest and even inspire a Google search to see if the story is based on real people. I also just noticed the review from the author of Water for Elephants and I loved that book.

BookBosomed1 Loved that book. I have the sequel on my TBR shelf. 2y
