  1. Can’t wait to read this! I’m planning to finish Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I’m really enjoying this book and can’t wait to finish it! I’ve also been reading A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult. Normally, I’m a huge fan of her books and will read them within a few days. However, with this one, I’m really struggling to get through. I’m just not a big fan of the reverse storyline.

  2. Happy Friday!😉

    My first lines come from Restaurant Weeks are Murder by Libby Klein…….

    “I don’t care how good Dr. Oz says it is, I’m not eating vegan cheese.” Aunt Ginny took the last stuffed pheasant off the Fraser fir, wrapped it in tissue paper, and placed it in an old Woolworth’s hat box to store until next Christmas.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!💕
