Hello everyone! I thought I’d do a #meetthebookstagrammer post since I haven’t done that yet. . I’m Randi—just Randi, not short for anything. My mom was going to name me Brandi, but changed her mind at the last minute. Good thing, too. There were four Brandi’s in my high school graduating class! I live in (usually) sunny Arizona, though this picture was just yesterday on a cool and overcast day. I was born in Wisconsin, so I am a Cheesehead all the way! I’ve been married to my hubby for 18 years. We have two sons, 16 and almost 13, and a Sheltie named Kershaw. Baseball is very important in our family. We spend many weeknights and weekends at the ballpark. (Like this past weekend.) I’m there early a lot with a book or my Kindle since my husband is the coach. If we are not at the ballpark, we are watching our favorite LA Dodgers on television. I am a fitness junkie. I go to the gym at least five days a week. My health is so important to me as my mother passed away from heart disease at a young age. Besides reading, I love music—all kinds. Shinedown is one of my favorite bands, but I love country music, too. (Much to my boys dismay!) Well, that’s a little about me! I love having my Bookstagram account and meeting, chatting with everyone! Do we have anything in common? Besides reading, that is...☺️ . . #readingcommunity#readersofig#readersofinstagram#readerforlife#bookcommunity#bookloving#bookstagramit#bookishlife#readingaddict#readersofinsta#bookloversunite#readytoread#randireads#bookmama#bookobsession#bookcrazy#bookaddicts
“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.” + “What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.” — Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov ... "إن سرّ الوجود الإنساني و مبرره ليس في إرادة الحياة، بل في الحاجة إلى معرفة السبب الذي يدعو الإنسان إلى الحياة." + "لقد تساءلت: ما الجحيم؟ فأجبت: هو عذاب الإنسان من أنه أصبح لا يستطيع أن يحب." — دوستويفسكي، الأخوة كارامازوف. ... Finished book two of The Brothers Karamazov and decided to keep reading so I will be starting volume 3 next. .. •Have you read anything by Dostoyevsky? Do you have a favorite? This is my second read by him, the first was Crime and Punishment which I absolutely loved.
Dangerous Magic, an all-new cozy mystery from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart writing as Evie Hart, is available now! It’s not every day you have to return to your hometown to bind your borderline-poltergeist grandmother to the family property. Unfortunately, today is that day for Avery Thorn. All Avery wants is to report the binding to the Witch Council so she can fulfill her obligation, but finding a dead body and the Head of the Council on the brink of death isn’t in her plan. Especially when she’s pegged as the number one suspect. Now, it’s down to Avery and her cousins—and her sassy feline familiar—to figure out who tried to murder the Head of the Council. Magically bound to find the culprit, the last thing she needs is the new detective getting under her toes. Unfortunately for her, she finds herself colliding with the hot cop more than she wants. And since her familiar hates him, it’s not always pleasant. New magic and a devastating tragedy threaten to derail their investigations—but not quite as much as the person who isn’t happy they’re involved… Download today or read FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

I was a bit lost on ideas for book photos but them I remembered I'd seen lots of people doing the #abcbooktitle tag so I thought I might aswell give it a go. This one definitely does take some time, there were certain letters I was scouring my shelves for ages for! 😂 I managed most in the end though, I'm just missing X, Y and Z, but that's not surprising as these seem to be the three that everyone's missing! 😊🙌
