  1. I finished listening to Nora Robert’s Legacy today. Like @Robin M said previously it was quite a roller coaster of emotions but I enjoyed every minute. I thought the narrator was quite good.....January LaVoy. I don’t think I have listened to her before.
  2. @Robin MThanks for the great thread!❤️ I have a book that involves Bosnia high in the stack called Catch the Rabbit https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/56064463-catch-the-rabbit. I haven’t read a single page but do have it in my currently reading stack on GR and I plan to dive into it later this week. I finally tried a John Dickson Carr mystery after hearing praises about his books for years. I read an early one....first published in 1931. Apparently it was a drug store mystery which meant you had a money back guarantee and could get your money back if you did not re
  3. @KareniI have only read the Elemental series. It’s good......I have reread some of them! My library has a couple other books by Elizabeth Hunter but they are random ones like number three in a series which for me makes trying them hard.......I always prefer in order!😉 Not sure if anyone here has read the Schuyler Sisters series by Beatriz Williams https://www.goodreads.com/series/165486-schuyler-sisters I have only read the first one but found the intriguing. The rest have been on the list........so today I started Our Woman in Moscow which simply sounded good as I love Cold War spy
  4. Thank you for the thread @Robin M I have been concentrating on making progress on my Bookchains where I connect one word from a recently finished book’s title or author name to a new book. I have been having fun with the planning and basically spent this week reading for the two separate bookchains I have been working on. The aim is 21 books in each a they let me dabble in authors that I have either been meaning to try or stepped away from because ........multiple reasons!😂 So last week I read Flight by Laura Griffin which was the latest in her Texas Murder Files series https://www
  5. @melmichiganI hope you start feeling better soon! I think new books by both Kim Harrison and Faith Hunter are coming soon...probably others too that I don’t remember.
  6. My May librarian spelling challenge...... Beatrice DeNovo B.......Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs E.......The Essence of Malice by Ashley Weaver A.......Much Ado About You by Samantha Young T.......Shadows in Time by Julie McElwain R.......The Mother Hunt by Rex Stout I ........Blood Heir by Ilona Andrews C.......The Galaxy and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers E.......Mayhem at the Orient Express by Kylie Logan D.......A Darkness Absolute by Kelly Armstrong E.......A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Grey N.......Angel Fall
  7. Thanks for the great thread Robin! Popping in quickly to give the thread a bump. I really loved The Eyre Affair when I first read it ........over a decade ago. Time flys! You are tempting me to do a reread as I know I will need E’s for Cheshire Cat! My hold on Legacy should be available in the next couple of weeks so I will look forward to it. I finished The Bookstore on the Beach by Brenda Novak who is another Harlequin author turned mainstream from back in the 80’s. It was one of those books that kept me reading to find out how in the world the author planned to reso
  8. My Murderbot is pretty genderless.........sort of it’s own being.
  9. In honor of Tortoise Week here is a picture of a sign by our bike trail. We see a tortoise there frequently.🙂 I have no idea how to rotate it.....
  10. I am almost done with this month’ s librarian spelling challenge and became a bit obsessive about getting the E’s done. I listened to 2 so so cozies The Essence of Malice https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33602098-the-essence-of-malice and A Most Extraordinary Pursuit https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26521489-a-most-extraordinary-pursuit in order to accomplish this. I will give A Most Extraordinary Pursuit credit for uniqueness as time travel and Greek mythology were wrapped into this Edwardian mystery.....so was Queen Victoria’s ghost. I also read the best new to me cozy series
  11. @Robin MThank you for the fun thread. I still need to click the links and explore. I totally think you should start us off for the next week whenever works best for you! No objection to Saturday night etc....... Much of my reading this week as been centered around WWII in England. I have continued listening to Maize Dobbs and am now finishing the last one that has been published. I love that series as it seems to be pretty accurate. I also read the Last Bookshop in London which was fiction mixed with historical realities. These books intertwined and I can’t separate bits between
  12. @Granny_WeatherwaxThunder is beautiful! Thanks for sharing the picture as I have never heard of the breed.
  13. A “classic cozy” by a new to me author, Baynard Kendrick, appeared in my Overdrive library recently which I happily tried yesterday. I carried my kindle around in order to finish it so I liked it.😉 The Odor of Violets https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/53492667-the-odor-of-violets is written by a WWI vet who was not blind himself but was actively involved with blind veteran’s causes/groups throughout his lifetime, apparently his best friend became blind during WWI. So his main character being a blind WWI vet who runs a detective agency is not a far reach. This book was set in the build up to
  14. Happy Mother’s Day everyone! It’s been a busy day for me......after a year of not much going on it’s wonderful to be busy again! I finished listening to my Kendra Donovan time travel series https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/52938648-shadows-in-time about a FBI agent who runs into a passage while fleeing a bad guy and comes out in 19th century England. I have found them to be totally entertaining fluff. I hope the author kept writing these! I have moved on listening wise to another of Ann Cleeves’ Vera’s. It’s good, a Murder at a writer’s retreat. I need to start growing my book ch
  15. I have had some finishes......... Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs was great! Really enjoyed this one. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/54325980-wild-sign Fugitive Telemetry is the latest in the Murderbot series. I listened to it and it was short, under 5 hours. I enjoyed it but it honestly didn’t live up to my expectations, that said I still gave it 5*. 😂🤷‍♀️ https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/53205854-fugitive-telemetry Silent Voices by Ann Cleeves in her Vera series for one of my book chains. These books are great! Wish I had known about them in the Brit Tripping year
