Well if nothing else I got my book goal for #bfcr2
The last couple weeks I haven‘t been able to do my normal routine plus the heat last week and running the garage sale at my parent‘s (way to much human interaction for this introvert). Yesterday and today would not have been a problem to go walk but I just didn‘t want to. I‘ve lost my motivation and it sucks.

Balibee146 Understandable... The more you beat yourself up the more it will feel like an unwelcome chore... Give yourself some breathing space and the want will come back xx 3h
wanderinglynn Life happens (which includes weather). We all have days (or in my case, weeks) where we lack motivation. It happens to all of us. Hang in there. 💜 Re-evaluate your goals & adapt as needed. 2h
wanderinglynn What works for me when I lack motivation is to break my goals up into smaller, more manageable chunks—10 minutes of walking, 10 minutes of yoga. Start slow. Allow yourself time to get back into a groove. Then slowly increase. One step, one day at a time. You‘ll get there and we are here for you. 💜 2h

The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

I'm glad i finally read this book because it did not dissapoint. What a thrilling, thought provoking read. Even though it is a dystopian, it still makes you think how casually we take the freedom we have and how easily it can be taken away. I would still say that i prefer the TV show but i enjoyed reading it. I'm looking forward to reading The Testaments.

Mitch You're smashing those reading goals! I read this so long ago and loved it. Ive recently downloaded the audio book because Elizabeth Moss reads it! 6h
sudi Thanks @Mitch but i think i'm the one with the lowest book goal 😄, i'm a slow reader so i don't mind. I didn't know about the audiobook, i'll have to check it out. She does such a great job on the tv show. 5h
Mitch @sudi she‘s amazing 5h
Tanisha_A One of my favourites! 4h

Heart-Shaped Box | Joe Hill

Very Stephen King-esque, but I didn‘t think it was as scary as it‘s been hyped to be. Supernatural horror always comes off as more weird than scary to me. But it was a good book to read during some gloomy days during my down time at work! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book 26/30 for #bfcr2

Birdsong28 Like how you said Stephen King -esque as Joe Hill is is son!!! 📚📖 6h
Hestapleton @Birdsong28 I know! I was surprised how similarly their horror reads. 5h

The heat finally broke enough for some #audiocooking this morning! so I'm making mini crust-less quiches for breakfast this week.
#bfc #BFCr2 @wanderinglynn @Hestapleton #bookdragons

Megabooks I make those Too! So good! 9h
julesG Would one of you share their recipe with me? @Megabooks 9h
Megabooks @julesG mine uses fat free evaporated milk instead of cream, but if you still want it, feel free to give me your email! It‘s a lower calorie version of quiche. 9h

julesG @Megabooks evaporated milk sounds very interesting. Not sure I can get it here, but will investigate and/or tweak the recipe. JulesGDSide@gmail.com 9h
wanderinglynn Those look delicious! 😋 9h
Megabooks @julesG I‘ll email you later today! 9h
IndoorDame @julesG I don't use an exact recipe, so if @Megabooks does you may want to start with that, but I spray an x-lg muffin tin w cooking oil and fill the cups w a mixture of ~6 eggs beaten with milk/soymilk & yogurt/Greek yogurt. Usually I add shredded cheese to this mix. All told it's ~2 cups. And then drop veggies or whatever filings into the cups,and bake at 350 until it sets ~40min maybe? 9h
julesG @IndoorDame Sounds easy to follow. I'll give both recipes a try. 9h
Hestapleton These look so yummy!! 9h

Meet my friend Bilqis. We met over 20 years ago. About 5 years ago, she was arrested for dropping balloons on the PM of Malaysia. Fortunately, her father is powerful, & she‘s fine.

The PM was embroiled in a scandal with the MC of this book, Jho Low. Low together with a cadre of ppl globally, conned banks and the Malay ppl out of BILLIONS! This scandal is crazy! It goes from Hollywood filmmaking to sovereign wealth funds. Recommend! 4⭐️ #audiobook

@Jas16 #signmeup Congrats on your 100k litfluence!!

Of course, I would have to pick RR! 🌈 I WISH I could have gone to her signing at ComicCon! Alas, San Diego is very far.

I love this book. I love everything about Cather & Levi. And Reagan. And Wren. I cried again at the end because I‘m ridiculous and a hopeless romantic under my tough exterior. Sigh. I enjoyed Carry On & am looking forward to Wayward Son. But Fangirl will always be my fav!

To be fair, I‘m always going to rate a Morse book as a pick because, well, it‘s Morse. This one has interest, though, as it was the first of the series to have been developed from a screenplay (The Wolvercote Tongue , from series 2 of Inspector Morse), so the main characters are showing an interesting mix of the original book characters and the TV characters. And it‘s the first book where Morse is now driving his infamous Jag.

Book 11/12 #BFCr2

Megabooks WTG on your reading goal!! I‘m glad you enjoyed the book! 👍🏻👍🏻 12h

Tiny shoutout to #TeamFlow @CocoReads @Reecaspieces @Moony @imabusybee @laurenslibrary @LibrarianJen @britt_brooke @wanderinglynn

How are you doing? Did you have a good start to week 5 of #BFCR2? What are your plans for the week? Any goal changes?

julesG I'm trying to do more exercise (cardio and strength would be ideal), but with that constant sinusitis it's very hard. I'm a little 🚂 - huffing and puffing. Well, I could be a 🐲 or a 🐺, too - for all the huffing... I've adjusted my book goal to 45 books. Surpassed 30 books already. I'm sticking to the 4 times exercise, but I will not fret about not making 50k steps. It's tough going, the heat has returned, my nose is clogged,... 12h
Megabooks I‘m sorry! I hope things improve soon! I did just went over all the reasons a horse could sound like a person with sinusitis in my head. You really brought out my inner 3rd year vet student!! 11h

britt_brooke @julesG That must be so frustrating. 😩 Hope you feel better soon! You‘re still doing awesome. 💪🏻 I‘ve worked out once on vacation, but it‘s raining today so little to no beach time. I may pop down to the fitness facility here. It looks decent. Plus I could use an introvert break. I‘m eating and drinking whatever I want this week.😆 9h
julesG @britt_brooke Enjoy your vacation! 9h
britt_brooke @julesG PS. I‘ve read 17 of my goal of 18 books so far. (edited) 9h
britt_brooke @julesG Thank you! 9h
julesG @britt_brooke Like your new avatar picture. 9h
CocoReads Enjoy the vaycay @britt_brooke @julesG it‘s definitely frustrating when you‘re huffing and puffing. When I get bronchitis I wind up forgoing exercise all together. It‘s enough to just breathe. 8h
britt_brooke @julesG Thanks! 🥰 8h
Mitch @julesG Oh honey - sorry you're not feeling 100% - You're a reading machine though - 30 books! 😻 6h
julesG @Mitch Thanks! The secret of success is cook book ARCs! At least 5 cook books. And a few children's books for #BBRC. 😁 6h
imabusybee No changes just continuously reading getting steps in when I can just to hot to care lol!! Loving the yoga so glad I added it #teamflow we got this👏🏻 6h
julesG @imabusybee 👏👏👏👏 5h
Moony Mhh this week is also difficult because of the beach vacation. I swam a little, but it isn't really sport. And tada: I got a sunburn 😂 my reading goal is hard: 1 audio 2 books so only 3 of 6 🤔 I wish you all luck and motivation! 3h
julesG @Moony Don't worry! Enjoy the holiday! 3h
