#bathandbook combined with #bookreport, because why not.

Obviously I‘m bathing with a current read. The other books (+literary mag) in my rotation are on the bottom. Books finished this week are on the top.

Only 13 more school days until summer!

Cinfhen Love this photo and book report 🥰are you back to the lake for the summer?? I can‘t believe this school year is almost over 🤗time is flying 2y
BarbaraBB Great pic! 13 days til summer? I feel like spring has yet to come 🥶 2y
Reviewsbylola No, unfortunately we have too many activities going on at home this summer to spend months at the lake. 😭 @Cinfhen 2y

A good book, a fragrant bath bomb, and a 🥔 mask. Because why not. 😂 #bathandbook

Started @emilyhaldi ‘s pick for the previous round of #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub. Somehow we have two rounds going on simultaneously. 😅

And I broke out one of my very favorite bath bombs to start off the weekend. Lush‘s Turmeric Latte.

#bathandbook

LeahBergen I have this waiting on my shelves so I‘ll be interested to see what you think. And what the HELL is a cheese mask like?? 😆😆 2y
Soubhiville Cheese mask? Sounds weird... Was it relaxing? (edited) 2y
BarbaraBB A cheese mask? That sounds horrible to be honest but then I don‘t like cheese and hate its smell so that might be part of my aversion 🤣 2y

Kalalalatja I‘m with the others, please explain that cheese mask 😅 2y
Simona I‘m curious about cheese mask too🧐 2y
emilyhaldi Loving these comments 🧀🧀🧀 curious to see what you think of this one 😅 2y
Reviewsbylola Ok, so I got the cheese mask in one of my monthly sheet mask subs. I do Beauteque and Facetory and I can‘t remember which one it was in. But it was an amazing texture, with the serum being a little thicker and viscous. I realize that doesn‘t sound extremely appealing but trust me, it felt great. And thankfully it didn‘t smell of cheese. 😅 @LeahBergen @Soubhiville @BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja @Simona @emilyhaldi 2y
Soubhiville 🤣 the smell was my concern. I‘m glad you liked it. 2y
LeahBergen @Soubhiville That was my concern, too 😆 2y

#bathandbook tonight. I‘m fascinated by the personal stories of 9/11, so when I saw this one in a LFL earlier today, I was ecstatic, especially since this title had slipped my radar.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Cantor lost so many people. That was devastating. 2y
Reviewsbylola It‘s terrible, and while I knew it was a devastating loss, I never really understood the magnitude. @JanuarieTimewalker13 2y
KatieB Have you read the tagged book? I can‘t recommend it highly enough, particularly as an audiobook 2y

Reviewsbylola Yes, love that one! I‘ve read it in print and on audio. @KatieB 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 I think I will have to read both books. I worked downtown (55 Water) but I had gotten really sick in July and was on leave,Had I been well, I‘d be in the midst of it. The WTC made me dizzy on a good day...used to take PATH in from Hoboken. I never completely felt safe after ‘93 (although I was not working day at the time). One woman‘s advice: AlWAYS wear your sneakers commuting. And I always did. She had been in the ‘93 bombing. 2y
Reviewsbylola Thank you for sharing your story. ❤️ I am so glad you avoided being there. I‘m sure the scars of those who witnessed the horrors will always be with them. @JanuarieTimewalker13 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘re welcome. Yes, that illness was a bad thing that ended up being good in the end. Strange days. Living is exhausting. Now I‘m exhausted bc somehow day 3 of my first dose of Moderna hit me like a ton of bricks. Smh. I can‘t even imagine what COVID would‘ve done. You stay well and take good care of yourself❤️ 2y

Tonight‘s #bathandbook

I started this book earlier today and it is fantastic. I‘ve laughed out loud multiple times. There‘s also a good balance of despair. And lord does it take me right back to being pregnant and having a newborn.

candority That bath bomb is hilarious! 🐸 2y
Kalalalatja I read this last year, I think, and I just realised I can‘t remember a thing about it 😅 but I think I enjoyed it! 2y

Epic mail day!

The Kindest Lie was sent to me by the publisher. I‘ll be giving it to family since I already purchased it through BOTM.

MICHELE!!!!! I cannot believe you sent me a brand new copy of Death‘s Acres. So kind of you. 🥰 I‘m really looking forward to it.

And my first parcel from Foxed Quarterly. Only one book was for me, my subscription clothbound, Cider With Rosie. The smaller size is perfect for my living room shelves.

Reviewsbylola Had to include my new sheet masks too. 😂 I‘m sure you‘ll see a couple featured in #bathandbook posts! 2y
MicheleinPhilly 😘 Enjoy! 2y
britt_brooke Ooh, those masks look amazing! 2y

LeahBergen Okay, seriously. Books and masks are my thing. 😆😆 And yayyyy that your Slightly Foxed arrived! What do you think? Aren‘t they bound gorgeously? Have you received the quarterly journal yet? 2y
Reviewsbylola Nope, did not receive the journal yet. Can‘t wait! @LeahBergen The books are beautiful 😍 2y
Reviewsbylola I used the red ginseng one last night. It made my skin so soft but it smelled like dirt. 😂 @britt_brooke 2y
