This is one of my fave series but stopped in Book 3 or 4. I should revisit the books soonest!

I wasn‘t sure what to expect with this story, but I was very pleasantly surprised! The tale was neatly interwoven, not overly complex, and overall lighthearted. There are ups and downs, thrills and laughs - I enjoyed it!

It was the beginning of a series, but you could easily read this and not have to continue (though I very well might).

Excellent week 1 Team #BFC! 🙌🏻

As you can see, I didn‘t quite make my goals. But that‘s okay. I have something to aim for next week.

Adapt & change, but don‘t quit. And if you‘re struggling, please post so your team can help you!

Optional photo challenge for week 2: post a photo of something that motivates you & tell us why it motivates you.

Kaye I like your photo challenge . I‘ll have to FUDGE mine a bit. I know EXACTLY what motivated me but I don‘t have a picture. I‘ll find one that‘ll give you the HINT. 7mo

Megabooks Great job! I think the community aspect is what is motivating me a lot. Knowing I‘m doing this with everyone else is great! 👍🏻👍🏻 7mo
baes Great job! 7mo
Erin7 This has been a great motivator so far. I love that you‘re adding things to keep it interesting😊 7mo
baes So can we adapt our goals? I met mine, but I think in order for this to stick I need to change. 😂 7mo
LapReader Thanks for your continued hard work organising us all. I love the bit about trying again if we didn‘t succeed this week. 7mo
catebutler Such a great week! You‘ll definitely be ready for your race in no time! 👏🏼 7mo
LibrarianRyan I will get my updates posted tomorrow or saturday. I am running a library conference tomorrow.
7mo
wanderinglynn @baes Yes you can change your goals. The important bit is to set goals for accountability. But sometimes our goals are right for us at that time. And as we change, so must our goals. I want everyone to succeed. 💜 7mo
julesG Like your stats. As to sugar consumption, I challenged my son this week. We both went without any sweets and had healthy meals. He's doing good, no "hangry" spells. 7mo
RachelO Thank you for this! You‘ve made me think about changing my Fitbit step goals - I regularly fall about 2000 short, so I‘ve reduced them by 1000 - I‘m more likely to put the effort in to reach 1000 more steps than 2000, which would still be heading in the right direction🤞 7mo
Jerdencon Nice job!! 😀 7mo
baes @wanderinglynn Okay I‘m going to change my goal then to 35,000. That is more doable on a regular basis! 7mo
wanderinglynn @RachelO That‘s the idea. Adapt. Make reachable goals. Because you‘re exactly right—if our goals are too high that we can‘t reach them, we won‘t even try. 👍🏻 7mo
TheEllieMo I‘m going to add a new goal - to stick to my calorie allowance! I‘ve been terrible for going over recently, which would explain why I haven‘t lost any weight. No more picking! 7mo
mcipher Yay - looks like you did awesome this week!! I started to post mine but for overwhelmed by math 😆- but i know I‘ve done okay! Lunch break at work and my brain is mush... 7mo
VanChocStrawberry I love seeing everyone's stats! It's inspiring! 7mo

Audiobook 1/6 finished for #BFC. My full review of the book on GR: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2503568790. The short version is it was entertaining but not so much that I‘ll pick up book 2.

On the fitness front, did 3 miles tonight, 10.4 total since Friday. I have hit 10k steps every day & have done my 10 min of yoga every morning. I‘m already feeling better. 😀🙌🏻

Despite a morning headache and sinus issues, I did my 10 min morning yoga. This afternoon, Dexter & I completed a 2.5 mile hike.

And despite its predictability, I‘m enjoying Magyk. The audiobook is read by Allen Corduner, who has a pleasant voice. (Of course, I can always listen to anyone with an English accent.)

Pretty good first day of #BFC (and it‘s not quite over, so my step total will be a bit higher). I walked Dexter 1 mile, started listening to the tagged, and I‘m still reading Going Postal.

“The Ramblings, which was where Silas, Sarah and the boys lived, was a huge stone building that rose up along the riverside. It sprawled for three miles along the river and back again into the Castle and was a noisy, busy place filled with a warren of passages and rooms, with small factories, schools and shops mixed in with family rooms, tiny roof gardens and even a #theater.”

So far so good! I‘ve had this lying around from when I was 11 or 12 and had never gotten around to reading it. Picked it up the other day looking for a light read and I‘m thoroughly enjoying it- has a Harry Potter feel to it, lots of wizards and magic. Fun read, would recommend!

Literary_Siren I love this series! I‘ve read the books just as many times as I‘ve read Harry Potter. 13mo

1. I used to just read one, but over the last few years I‘ve regularly been reading 4 or 5 at once, so I‘ve gotten used to going back and forth!
2. Sometimes it‘s really clear like watching a movie, other times it‘s just bits and pieces of image & sound like a dream.
3. Outside, but usually close (like a movie).
4. So many! I loved fantasy books like Harry Potter & Septimus Heap, so those for sure 🔮🧙🏻‍♀️

wanderinglynn I haven‘t read it, but spelling it as “magyk” I think would annoy me. I‘d love to hear other opinions on this. 2y
JuliaTheBookNerd @wanderinglynn It‘s not so bad. It is kind of the theme of the series to spell certain words differently. The books in the series are; Magyk, Flyte, Physik, Queste, Syren, Darke, & Fyre. 2y
wanderinglynn Thanks @JuliaTheBookNerd! It sounds interesting, so I may give it a try. 2y

Wonderful story. Angie really knows how to create a universe for you to get lost in. You follow young Jenna and Septimus and really get hooked into their stories.

So, this is my third time reading the first book in Septimus Heap & I am determined to finally finish the series (the first book really is good, despite my fickle reading habits)!! In other news, I read all of the Shannara books -- YAY 😄 -- & am now starting to realize that a majority of my life goals involve reading very long, time-consuming fantasy series 😁🐲

ReadingRover I love this series!!! 2y

Enjoyed this read. But it's pretty heavily related to the potterverse and it kind of made me just want to reread Harry Potter. However, I am going on to book 2. Likeable characters and intriguing plot. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
