Bailedbailed

I was enjoying this at the beginning more than my #LMPBC . But then I paused & didn't pick it up for 3/4 weeks which is an indication that it's entertaining but forgettable. When I went back to it, I couldn't bear the overwhelming slut shaming and sense that we were supposed to concur with this mindset. No thanks.
At more than halfway it still felt that the crux was no where in sight & also you kind of end up forgetting it's a letter.

Ok #teamcanada #groupx...I paused for like 3 weeks...maybe 4 on this and just read a chapter or two and I'm really having a hard time with all the slut shaming going on. Plus I just keep wondering as I'm past halfway WTF is this SO LONG. and when does "it" happen ...whatever it is, whatever the point of writing such a long letter is!! Lol
Oy. Should I trudge on? @BookishTrish @StayCurious @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @FantasyChick

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego How are we all doing with our reads? I've only received one book so far in our entire round. Not sure if the mailing order is still mixed up, or some are just behind?... If you haven't already sent me anything, can you please hold off until the 24th. I'm going away and don't want any books left sitting in the snow while I'm gone. @Jemmygem 2w
StayCurious @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego good to know - I was planning to send you The Fifth Life of the Cat Woman tomorrow. I will hold off. I have that book and I have the Planet Mars book which will be my next read. 2w
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego As long as it gets here by Friday, but better to err on the side of caution. 2w
Jemmygem @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I have your next book and will hold off until after the 24. Enjoy your trip xoxo 2w
Jemmygem Actually I think I send to @StayCurious lol which I will be sending in the next few weeks not done yet been busy with work and school lol 2w
StayCurious @Jemmygem I think you do send to Danielle, not me. 2w
michellelav @StayCurious Just wanted to let you know I got it today!! 😊 2w

@FantasyChick grabbed this off my front porch this morning- note some little fellow tried his damndest to get my quality street chocolates!!!!
The ornament made me tear up! THANK YOU! You would not believe how much that sentiment hits home right now.
#LMPBC #teamcanada #groupx @StayCurious @BookishTrish @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego

FantasyChick Yay! It finally made the trip! So happy you like the ornament. I was walking through the store looking for something and thought of you when I saw it. Of course, I broke the box but that doesn't matter 😘😘😘 2mo
Andrea4 @FantasyChick a little broke like me 😉 I love it!! 2mo

#PoutinePenPals #TeamCanada @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @BookishTrish @StayCurious
