The Burning Maze | Rick Riordan
post image

It‘s not you, Apollo/Mr. Riordan, it‘s me. You see, there are two more books yet unreleased in this series and I don‘t have it in me to read this book only to have to WAIT, so it‘s back on the #TBR until the series is fully published and I can read the rest all in one go. See ya in a few years, buddy. (And I really can‘t wait for my Little Bug to meet you in a decade or so!)

I just finished Akata Warrior on #Kindle, my spouse is back from his four day work trip and on baby duty, giving me another few hours to read peacefully. Can‘t decide what to pick up next but it‘s one of these three for sure.

Weekend reads while down by the Bay. I should probably finish one of the two novels I‘m already in the middle of but the tagged book is calling to me.... especially since neither vampires nor wintery lands seem appropriate in my current summertime setting. 😉

Should I have done this when my #TBR and #BOTM TBR stacks are both huge? No.
Did I do it anyway? Yes.

I just finished The Book of Joan, and I have a lot of....thoughts about it. I‘d planned to start one of the new books I have on my #Kindle and come back to Property Of another time but I‘m still too much in Joan‘s world to make a decision, so #TeamAlice it is! #ihaveatleastfortyunreadbooksonmykindle #bibliophileproblems

Well it became very obvious, over the last few months, it was time for a bigger mailbox. We are hoping our mail delivery person is happy they don't have to honk for us to come out, attempt to fit all the books we order in, or get out of their truck to put them on our deck (above and beyond the call of duty for sure)! Our old box (right) was almost 7 inches wide and the new? 16 INCHES! BRING ON BOOK MAIL! #bookmail #bibliophileproblems 😁

Jinjer That is awesome!!!! 11mo

My mom made this her first #BOTM pick in December then realized three chapters in that she wasn‘t up for psychological thrillers right now. I, on the other hand, am absolutely up for a psychological thriller right now so I‘m going back to my old (pre-pregnancy) read-more-than-one-book-at-a-time ways. #bibliophileproblems

emilyhaldi I loved this one!!! Kept me guessing. 1y
Eggs I thought it was brilliant 1y

Cinfhen Oh wow! Time flies...so glad to hear he‘s doing well...such a big milestone today 🎉💙💙💙💙chubby & delicious are my favorite adjectives for a newborn 👶🏼 😊😘glad you‘re getting reading time in too 1y
Eggs @lauren.lerner I forgot you had a Christmas baby!!!! Caring for the babies/toddlers: in retrospect the best years of my life 💕 1y
lauren.lerner He was a winter solstice baby — he made the shortest day of the year all his, @Eggs 😉 I‘ve wanted to be a mom for a very long time so I couldn‘t be happier he‘s here, even if he arrived eight weeks early! 1y

Hooked_on_books I‘m a 41 year old surgeon and recently introduced myself to a patient‘s wife, who then said, “You look like a little girl.” Sadly, sexism even comes from other women at times. 😡🙄 1y

Alfoster So flattering but weird😆! 1y
Alfoster @Hooked_on_books But maybe she meant it in a good way and just wasn‘t thinking because of her husband in the hospital?? My new dentist looks like she‘s in high school and I had to stop and think before I commented😍! 1y
brilliantglow I didn't realize you posted this at first and almost tagged you in it thinking "wow that's crazy! What a coincidence that someone else is also traveling while reading law articles"???? 1y
Hooked_on_books @Alfoster That‘s a nice thought, but her tone said otherwise. I‘ve gotten variations of this many, many times. It is what it is. 1y
Alisnazzy @brilliantglow Hahahaha!!!! 1y
Alfoster @Hooked_on_books Then it must be hard not to have some snarky remark like, “Don‘t you wish you were this smart?” Sorry you have to deal with this😫! 1y
Johanna414 I‘ve been employed by 2 different school districts since I was 25 and have been mistaken for a student in both... it gets old, doesn‘t it? 1y
mrsmarch In other news, this guy totally thought he was going to hit on a high school aged girl tonight. 😡 I hope he gets scorpions in his house slippers. 1y
CouronneDhiver Haha! Omg. Happens to me all the time. 1y
Kaye I‘ll trade you guys places . Wait til they start calling you Ma‘am or Hun.....can I help you carry your groceries to the car ? If some geezer hit on me, I‘d wish for 🦂 scorpions In his underpants. Hit ‘em where it hurts. 1y
