I had an absolutely terrible day. It was made a smidge better when I found this perfect pillow at target and it was the last one left. Like it was meant to be 💙

Graywacke Goodness, I feel that right now. 5mo
Chrissyreadit I hope tomorrow is significantly improved 😘❤️ 5mo
Ruthiella Excellent retail therapy. Clearly it was meant to be. Hope tomorrow is better! ❤️ 5mo

I resisted the retail therapy until today, but ably assisted by a push over the edge from Cindy, I pressed the button. And a thank you to all the people I got the recommendations from.
Don‘t worry I‘ll share book mail posts because this is a crappy photo!

RaeLovesToRead Hehe, I didn't even make a no more books resolution this year because I was too busy adding to basket... and there are new releases coming up +++ 😁 11mo
TrishB @RaeLovesToRead I definitely didn‘t make a New Years resolution. I was trying not to give in whilst in quarantine- but it didn‘t work. I needed some cheering up 😁 11mo
RaeLovesToRead Huzzah 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Quarantine is rubbish, you deserve a book-treat 😁 (my first haul of the year will hopefully arrive tomorrow) 11mo

Normally I keep a list of books I‘ve read for the year, I wasn‘t really keeping track this year but I just wrote this up. I normally set goals & try to surpass the previous year‘s goal, but this year I decided not to take it so seriously. There‘s been too much going on. I just wanted to read as much as I was able. I read 25 last year, & so far I‘ve read 15 this year. Definitely slower but better than I expected. Making a dent in the TBR pile lol.

I spent what some people in my house deem an unreasonable amount of time getting my stack for #14books14weeks2021. I‘ve pulled a mix of books I‘m really excited for, a few I‘m disappointed I haven‘t gotten around to picking up yet & a handful from my Sweet Reads box from last year that I still haven‘t read.

So excited @TheHeartlandBookFairy is hosting this again. It‘s my favourite summer challenge, even if I‘ve never managed to finish on time 🤪

TheHeartlandBookFairy So glad you're back with us again this year, that looks like a great stack! Whether or not you finish, goals are good 😉 Happy reading! 2y
llwheeler 😂 I also spent quite a while making my stack. Yours looks great, good luck this year! This is my fave summer challenge too, and I've also never managed to finish it. 2y

Choose 14 books off your TBR stack to be read during this time frame. I like choosing actual books despite the fact that I have hundreds in my Kindle...

My physical bookshelves are overflowing and I want to Marie Kondo them a bit.
So, I‘m posting #abookaday of my “maybes” and I hope you can help me decide.
Since I lost my phone for a few days (found in the hamper) here are two.
Have you read either of these books? Should I? ❤️ or a hard pass? Is one better than the other?
Let me know below.

rwmg I've only read the Rachel Caine one. Not terrible but not a must have either 2y
BookwormAHN I've read the Lisa Unger one and it was good. 2y
Avanders Funny, you have once of each, above 😁 For what it‘s worth, I read and enjoyed the Caine one — it‘s a slightly more meaty YA series set around this concept of books as both vice and as priceless collectibles (but, *not* everyday home-items). I have read… 2 of the series I think. I started before it was done, so I‘ve been sidetracked 😜 I‘d say it‘s definitely good, and fun. But a “must read”? Maybe not… I gave it a solid 4 ⭐️ I think :) 2y

My library does this cool thing where they offer educators (including homeschoolers like me) first crack at the weeded books. I just happened to be there this morning and got first dibs! I went through about half before giving up and bringing the kiddo home, but got most of a box (no idea where they‘ll fit). Better pics to come. Nice way to start a Monday!

ravenlee I think, all told, this is about $400 of books, if I paid list price. 😳 A huge thanks to my library! 2y
marleed Nice - I love free books or deeply discounted library books. Funny thing I actually spend more on new books because of my extensive thrifted books - it‘s seems only right to support new books and Bookstores, as well. I also donate or give away more of my books because I‘m not the original owner of every book I own. 2y

I‘m having one of those days where my depression is obsessed with the fact that there will always be more books that I want to read than I have time to read. I‘m a little weepy and doomscrolling libby.

(Preeeetty sure this is my brain‘s way of handling election anxiety...oh god I just need it to be over already)

Anyways, I might bump my GR goal to 250?? That would essentially mean a book a day for the rest of the year...

vivastory Hey, we're twins! I'm at 190 & my challenge is 200. I raised mine to 250 for a minute & then reset it, just bc I need at least one thing this year to go right 😂 2y
LiteraryinLawrence I totally hear you with spiraling thoughts. Probably election related (and just 2020 related) even though the thoughts themselves are not about the election. Hang in there! I have found that there is a sweet spot with my reading. If I go for too much quantity, I lose some of the quality because I'm just looking to finish books. Even if we somehow had time to read all the books, we couldn't possibly enjoy them. Read what you can? 2y

Yikes. This result is...not great. Working on my TBR this year is my biggest priority. I hope I can make a decent dent in the piles, ideally I‘d like to get it down by half. That‘s probably hoping for too much, but if I can chip away a little every week and keep reading what I own, maybe it‘s a possibility?

I bought this bookish necklace from www.zulily.com. It‘s so cool. I also saw some earrings on there that say this too. I‘m going to buy them to match this necklace. This necklace says,”So many books, so little time”. This was my first purchase from this website. They have so many things on this website. I got this necklace at a low price too and they gave me a jewelry bag to keep the necklace in.

#30junebooks #bookwormproblems @howjessreads So...I may constantly take out more books from the library than I possibly have time to read...here is my current stack. I probably pay more overdue fines than I‘d like to admit 😮

Freespirit Wow that is a huge stack! Well done😊 4y

StayCurious @AutumnRLS I really like Brook's steampunk series, so I'm hoping to like her demon series as well. 4y
Crazeedi Oh my you have it worse than me! I think 8 or 9 are the most I've ever checked out of physical library, though my overdrive has 18😬😊 4y
Curiouser_and_curiouser Me too! I prefer to buy second hand books to avoid the reserving, borrowing, reborrowing returning, only to have to reserve or borrow again if its taking me a while to finish. You are (or will have to be) a quick reader! Very ambitious :) 3y
StayCurious @Curiouser_and_curiouser - I think too ambitious! I put several items on hold and they all came in at the same time. We'll see how many I can get through. I like your name by the way! 3y

Another BookCon for me, another wonderful, exhausting day!! I spent so much time talking to publishing people and new friends, I unfortunately didn‘t make it over to where the Littens were! I hope that everyone who went had a fabulous time, and if you‘re going today, that you snag more books!

TheSpineView Have a good time! 4y
mrozzz @TheSpineView I had a GREAT time!! 4y

I‘m joining in at the last minute, and here‘s my stack for #14Books14Weeks

These are mostly from my ever growing tbr and one has actually been on my shelves for 14 yrs. Three of these books are bought this year, but two of them are nonfiction and I don‘t read as much nonfiction as I would like.

Clwojick Those Nancy Mitford spines are lovely! 😍 4y
Velvetfur Oohh I love a good stack like that, this is a great pic 😊 4y
AnneCecilie @Clwojick I love the color palette for these Penguin editions. All cover arts are made by Lourdes Sanchez 4y

AnneCecilie @Velvetfur thank you 😊 4y
Aimeesue So much Mitford! ❤️ 4y
TheHeartlandBookFairy Yay for clearing our TBRstacks! Or at least making a very small dent in them 😂😂😂 so happy you are joining us, good luck! 4y
Siri_reads Hvilken bok har du hatt i 14 år? ? Ble nysgjerrig ? 4y
AnneCecilie @Siri_reads Berlin Alexanderplatz. Den er en del av en serie som bokklubben hadde og bøkene kom annenhver måned. Lurer på om den het Verdensbiblioteket. 4y

Ok, I‘m in, here‘s my stack! A few I knew I was going to read this summer anyway, and the rest a mix of both new and shiny and books that have been on my shelf way too long and keep getting back-burnered by new releases and library holds. I also tried to mix up the more serious, with a few shorter reads. May the odds be ever in your favor.

#14Books14Weeks

sammisho Henrietta Lacks...best book I read in 2018. How to build a Girl...one of my favorite books! 4y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @sammisho I know, there are some that I expect to be very good...but they keep getting pushed back because of library hold‘s etc. So hopefully this will be the push I need to move them up to the front of the list. 4y
LauraBrook Such a great stack! And the whole Bride‘s Story is one of my favorite manga series. Such beautiful, detailed illustrations, and it‘s a time and place I didn‘t know much about. Love it, and Kaoru Mori! 4y
TheHeartlandBookFairy So happy to have you join us! What a great stack, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was one of my all-time favorites! 4y

Last year I posted the 13 books in 13 weeks challenge. This year there are 14 weeks between memorial day & labor day so this year's challenge will be 14 books in 14 weeks. Who's in with me this year? These are the 14 I chose off my TBR stack. I only chose books off my actual stack, not my Kindle because I like the visual representation & these take up a lot more room than the hundreds waiting to be read in my Kindle lol 😂 #14Books14weeks. Share..

TheHeartlandBookFairy Use the hashtag #14Books14Weeks and/or tag me in your post 😁 4y
TheHeartlandBookFairy Post a picture of the 14 books you choose 📚📚📚📚📗📘 4y
