This book made me so mad at some of the characters but I couldn‘t stop reading so it‘s a 5 star for me!

The Yellow House | Sarah M. Broom

I really wanted to like this book. I love New Orleans and wanted to learn more about New Orleans East where the author is from but it was too disjointed to follow. This book rambled all over the place and really needed a good editor.

marleed Oh I hate it when I‘m inside a book and wondering where the editors went. 2mo

Call me a monster but by almost halfway through this book I could care less about these characters. Started feeling it was too contrived. Here‘s a cute picture of my cat, who I do care about!

This book is sooo confusing. What the hell happened the last half of the book?

Author talk and book signing was a great night out. He played songs on his guitar inspired by the book. Line was too long both to buy the book and to get it signed - I'm not a patient person and the bookstore was super crowded. Almost claustrophobic! Fun fact: I live on the same street as the bookstore which is in a gorgeous old house. Too far to walk but a 5 minute drive:)

Found this little book appropriately enough at Octavia Books on my trip to New Orleans. Took an Uber specifically there as last time I was here I didn't get to go to one bookstore😢

tawnireller When I was traveling a lot for work, and I‘m not a “comfortable” plane passenger, I was sad at each plane landing while I was reading this book. I passed it forward to a millennial gamer, and even he enjoyed it (he‘s an avid reader and loves the “classic” video games). I saw the movie, too, and it was good, but VERY different than the book. 2y

My friend's daughter is turning 12. She loves books and requested Suzanne Nelson. My own daughter loved Lauren Myracle so took a chance on that one. The birthday girl is also a huge animal lover so threw in Dr Doolittle, which I loved at her age!

I got my 19 year old daughter hooked on this series. I have been molding her into a reader since she was born and am not above putting an addictive, some may even say shallow, read into her hands just to keep her reading. However I do believe my work here may be done as she is voraciously gobbling these up! She calls them her "olden time" books! #evilgeniusbwahaha

I got this for my trick or treat giveaway last year but I wanted to read it first so now it's in this years giveaway! It's pretty cute! I loved books about witches when I was younger but I missed this one somehow. I thought my mom was a witch because she had black hair! Totally overlooked the fact that I had black hair too!

After I finished this book I had the biggest book hangover. Still can't get it out of my mind years later! I bought a copy for my stepdaughter so I could have someone to talk to about it. It blew her away also. I emailed the author and she answered me back! What a thrill that was!!

Nebklvr How cool! Not only the author bit, but that you could actually get a family member to read a recommended book 3y
tapgurl Seriously! I sent it to her through her kindle and it took her a long time to read it but she called me when she was done! She is a huge reader which is awesome! Husband only reads on planes and then it's a military type book:/. 3y

Had to make two posts to include everything my secret Santa spoiled me with! This awesome funny cat book which I'm thinking my profile picture of my adored Scamp may have given a hint I'm a big cat lover and love to read about cats! I'm also a Harry Potter fan and love these clever book marks:). The candles come scented in Old Books, Book Store, Oxford Library and Book Cellar! How fun is that??? Thank you again!

Yamich49 Haha yeah I took a chance that you were a cat lover based on that profile pic. 😆 Business Cat is one of my favorite things so I hope you get a lot of laughs out of that one! And so happy you like everything else. Happy Winter Solstice and Happy Holidays! 3y
tapgurl Just opened the candle package and believe it or not they smell super good!!! 3y
tapgurl I lied everything! The cat book will get passed around my family so it will get lots of use and actually I know my mom will enjoy the the hello book too. And what a tray to get a hardback! I've been wanting to read My Drunk Kitchen but didn't know she had another one out so I will start with that one:)) 3y

Yamich49 Ahhhh glad you like everything! I tried to pick books off of your TBR/similar to books in your TBR that it didn't seem like you had yet. Hope you enjoy them! I was eyeing that Hannah Hart book myself - you'll have to let me know how you like it!! ❤️ 3y

Just helped a lost grandma find this book for her granddaughter at our local Barnes and Noble. I showed her how to use the computer to locate books but she didn't want to try it so I did it for her. No employees in sight I think they were swamped on another floor. I always wanted to work in a bookstore!

I'm excited to start this! The library here has a new program where popular best sellers are labeled Lucky Day (As in its your lucky day to get this book!) They are on a special shelf, can only be checked out for two weeks with no renewals and they are left at the library they are returned to. I got to read the new Harry Potter that way when I was like 150 on the waiting list! Good things have happened at our libraries with the better economy

One of my favorite hiking books! Pretty crazy they did it barefoot as that's how they were raised. The funny thing is the thought of hiking horrifies me but I Iove reading about it. Especially when I'm nice and cozy at home!

So yes I read this in a very dark wood. In a cabin. Alone with two teenage girls. And it was so good I couldn't put it down. Even though I knew it was going to be a very long night. Can't wait to read her next book!
