Tidelands | Philippa Gregory
post image
Pickpick

My review of Philippa Gregory's new book Tidelands is up on my blog at www.thespineview.com In short, a solid read but not one of my favorites from her. The middle dragged some but the character development was outstanding. Recommend for lovers of historical fiction with strong female characters. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

TheSpineView I received a free copy at BookExpo. Pictured is Ms. Gregory signing my copy. 2d

My #Screamathon package is shipping today to the lovely @riversong153

No peaking! I hope you like what I picked out. I was disappointed that I couldn't find orange and black tissue paper. Don't know why I worry about how stuff is wrapped!😋

@4thhouseontheleft

TheSpineView Forgot to mention @riversong153 that this is shipping FedEx from my office. Email at lisa@thespineview.com if you would like the tracking information. It should reach you before the end of next week. 2d
mdm139 Yeah I couldn‘t find festive tissue paper anywhere either. So I didn‘t wrap them this time. 2d
TheSpineView @mdm139 I went 3 places and no luck. So I used what I had. 😏 2d
