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.
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.
1. Right now it‘s 🙌🏻💜😂
3. #MayMadness reading, #BookFitnessChallenge, & working on my #MysteryMessageSwap
4. I‘m last, but I really grew up an only child because my siblings (halfsies) are 12 & 14 years older than me.
“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!
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 🔮🧙🏻♀️
The kiddos and I found this a week ago for about a dollar and are really excited to read it together. Anyone know about the Septimus Heap series?
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 😁🐲
