I'm just going to have to vent here: I miss the heck out of my best friend. I ended my 5 years relationship in October and my best friend died in December. Now I have been looking for a place and no one seems to have anything. I'm trying my best to keep a level head. But literally all my best friends are dead, I'm single, and I refuse to vent to my children. I'm tired of crying everyday

TheKidUpstairs Sending you love. I'm so so sorry for your loss. Hugs and care and love to you. If you ever need someone to reach out to, vent to, talk to, anything, please feel free to reach me at megansbrady@gmail.com 💗💗💗💗💗💗 2y
SW-T Hugs to you. You‘ll find a place and you WILL start to heal. This is just a bump in the road to fabulous. Hang in there! 🥰🙏🏾 2y

Come-read-with-me @Reign_1982 Sending you a hug filled with friendship and strength. In time you will find ways of healing, but right now it is ok to be not ok. There is no one way to grieve. Be kind to yourself. 💕 2y

Mehso-so

Meh. Protagonist is a hired killer who stalks his victim on a luxury expedition cruise to Antarctica. The pacing is steady but sluggish in places. Characterization is good for the protagonist and some of the secondary characters. But the climax happens off-camera and is told in an abbreviated flashback - oh yeah, by the way, I killed him by throwing him overboard when he was drunk and buzzed on marijuana. Not one of my best reads this year.

I will be stepping away for a while. My last living best friend has died. I just need to process this. It was just her and I left. The craziest part. I had to find our on my own. Through looking in the paper. She passed away the 18th. She was my rock, like my little sister. Now it's just me left on this 🌎. I had three best friends. Two killed to domestic violence and. Idk how shemika even died. I understand I had covid at. The time but. Smh

Nute This is heartbreaking, Ms. Nigeria. I know that you are hurting. Time is needed for processing and healing. Please reach out to others when you are ready. There are folks who care about your wellbeing. Many prayers for comfort and peace!💕 2y
Reign_1982 @Nute thank you, heartbreaking is definitely an understatement all my best friends were killed to domestic violence. Shemika allegedly killed herself to suicide. Ar the time I was battling Covid. The most hurtful things is not knowing if she was expecting me there. Her mom didn't tell me spit. My associate had to tell me. I've been looking for my bestie. I knew her grandma had just died. She would've answered. But she is in Heaven. I know that 2y
Reign_1982 @LazyOwl thank you 2y
Nute Every part of this is painful, Ms. Nigeria. There are not enough words for loss due to any type of violence. I only know to reach out to you like this, to stand near you, to hear and listen to you and to pray for you. May God shower you with a blessing of peace! 2y
Reign_1982 @Nute thank you. I'm not trying to be rude. This is just really hurtful, and now it's just me. 2y
Nute None of this registers as rude to me. I see this as honest feelings about real pain. It‘s okay to say what you feel. 2y

@hes7 did your package for #jolabokaflodswap get to you? It was mailed on the 7th. @MaleficentBookDragon

hes7 No, it hasn‘t arrived yet, but I know the mail is crazy right now. Do you have the tracking number? 2y
Pogue Let me look for it. I had it a few days ago. 2y
Pogue @hes7 ok. I sent it priority on the 7th of December, when I checked the tracking on the 17th. Tracking said it had been delivered so I tossed the number. 2y

Pogue @hes7 I will send another package out on Saturday for you. I am so sorry about this. 2y
hes7 Hmm, weird. I was out of town when it was delivered, so let me take a look around the house to make sure it didn‘t end up in some nook or cranny. 2y
Pogue @hes7 if you don‘t find it by Saturday let me know so I can go out and Mail another pkg. 2y
hes7 That‘s generous of you to offer, especially since it seems like the mail is at fault here. I‘m not finding the package, so I‘m guessing that it ended up with a neighbor. ☹️ 2y
Pogue @hes7 thank you for looking merry Christmas 2y
Pogue @hes7 would you mind if I shipped this using Amazon using one of the locker pickups for you 2y
hes7 I‘ve never used one before, but I‘m sure that would work. Also, I‘m at my parents‘ until New Year‘s, so no need to rush anything (especially if there‘s a time limit for the locker pickups). Appreciate all the thought! Hope you‘re enjoying the holidays! 2y
Pogue @hes7 there is a time limit on the lockers so let me know when you get back and I will put in the order. 2y

Book two in the Lancashire Cotton Saga. A great addition to the series. It was lovely meeting up with some of the characters from the first book, Song of the Shuttle, to find out how they‘re getting on. It‘s an interesting and enjoyable tale containing a bit of all sorts, from family drama, to adventure, to murder with a sprinkling of romance. It‘s written in an easy to read and engaging style. Highly recommended for historical fiction saga fans.

Renna's Crossing by Geordie Morse
A very strong beginning, but slowly began having pacing issues as in two steps forward one step back. The chapter transitions were a bit clunky. The writing, world building and character development were great. There was a satisfying twist that I did not see coming but the end left me with unanswered questions. A unique story and a promising author!

I Wonder

I wonder why the grass is green,
And why the wind is never seen?
Who taught the birds to build a nest,
And told the trees to take a rest?
O, when the moon is not quite round,
Where can the missing bit be found?
Who lights the stars, when they blow out,
And makes the lightning flash about?
Who paints the rainbow in the sky,
And hangs the fluffy clouds so high?
Why is it now, do you suppose,
That Dad won't tell me, if he knows?

DAB This poem by Jeannie Kirby popped into my head after I saw the #wonder
It is a blast from my past.

Signed up for my first one. Excited to start.
Group G

HeathHof Awesome! Lmpbc can be so much fun, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! 2y
Pageturner1 @Mynameisacolour How do we decide on a book? 2y
HeathHof So each of us gets to select one book to read and send on. Typically, each member will throw out a few options that they are considering first, just to make sure they don't choose one that someone has already read and to gauge the interest on each option. 2y
Pageturner1 do we have to wait a certain amount of time till our group is filled before we pick a book 2y
HeathHof It's up to you. I like to wait until the group is full in order to get everyone's input but if there is a book that you are set on shout it out! Maybe it would interest someone in joining our group by throwing out some ideas now. We still need 2 more! 😬 2y
