1) Rice - I could eat it with every dang meal and I almost do. And It doesn‘t matter the type. Lol.
2) A Polaroid Zip - I use it to print out photos for my vision board and my planner.
3) I‘m reading the book attached to this post, as well as , Beloved by Toni Morrison and The Wrath & The Dawn by Renée Ahdieh.

Pickpick

While reading the first book, I had originally thought this series would be a middle grade fantasy, however, after reading The Gauntlet of Wrath, I am certainly going to say that I was wrong! The author improved SO much of Faharen's story in this sequel that it's almost a whole new storyworld and I'm very glad of it!

I'm studying today (exams tomorrow & Friday) so no reading for me. I must live vicariously through you all ❤️🤓📖❤️

#WhatAreYouReading #Wednesday

positivelybrianareads I‘m reading Six of Crows and Renegades ❤️ 9mo
jessinikkip It is about a woman named Bess, who is the mistress of Henry VIII while married to his first wife. She gives him a son, but they arent married so he cant take the throne 9mo
See All 46 Comments
SexyCajun The Cruel Prince Also Kat Makris Greek Mafia series 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @positivelybrianareads how are you enjoying Six of Crows? I've been wondering whether I should get into that one or not. 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @MommyOfTwo oooo 😗 how do you like it so far? Hercule Poirot is such a dynamic character. 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip hmm, interesting. I'm wondering about the title. If her son is unable to take the throne then how is it the Queen's rival? 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @SexyCajun oh the Greek mafia series sounds interesting. How are you liking it so far? 9mo
positivelybrianareads @TheReadingMermaid admittedly it took a while for me to get into because I felt like a lot of characters were being introduced too fast so I had a hard time making a connection. Now that I‘m further into the book though I‘m real enjoying it 9mo
MommyOfTwo I‘m not very far yet and it‘s my first Agatha Christie Book so not sure yet. To comment on Six of Crows, I loved that book so much! I read the sequel right after. 9mo
NovelGirl82 I‘m back at work today, so I‘m reading charts 🤷‍♀️ 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @positivelybrianareads that's great to hear. I have been thinking about getting into this book for a while now. But have been teeter-totter and because I've heard both good things and bad things. 9mo
positivelybrianareads @TheReadingMermaid my best friend had the same experience as me . She originally didn‘t like the book when she first started but she‘s already finished it and she‘s in loooove lol 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @MommyOfTwo what turned me off about that book was that Hercule Poirot while being a very interesting character I found him to also be a little rude and conceited. That may just be my conception of it however. 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @NovelGirl82 awe I'm sorry sweetie. I feel your pain. I am reading textbooks today 😩 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @positivelybrianareads oh good that's wonderful to hear. I may have to add this to my TBR stack! Thank you for sharing with me I really appreciate it 🤗😘 9mo
SexyCajun @TheReadingMermaid it‘s humorous good cozy mysteries. These books have a typo or two every now and then but I don‘t let it bother me 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @SexyCajun that's awesome! I may have to look into these. Thank you for sharing with me sweetie 😘🤗 9mo
Emilymdxn Tagged book and Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James - two quite deep high concept odd books but both absolutely wonderful so far 9mo
greenhairdontcare The tagged book plus Why I Am No Longer Talking To White People About Race & Boys Will Be Boys. 9mo
jessinikkip @TheReadingMermaid because everyone speculated he was going to leave his wife for her since she proved she could produce a son. The queens kept falling out of favor because all theyd give him were girls 9mo
SexyCajun @TheReadingMermaid oh I meant to say that you can compare to Stephanie Plum. Plum is from the 90s but Kat Makris is more current. 🖤🥰 Hope you like them! 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @Carolyn11215 how are you enjoying that one? I've heard a lot of good things about that book. 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @Emilymdxn wow they sound wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing sweetie. I really appreciate it 😘 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @greenhairdontcare how are you enjoying your books so far? 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip oh I see now. Okay okay I can dig it. You really are on a kick with Henry the VIII aren't you? ❤️😊❤️ 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @SexyCajun thank you so much love! I'm sure I will. They have been added to my TBR list ❤️🤗🤗❤️ 9mo
Carolyn11215 @TheReadingMermaid took me a few chapters to get into the swing of the book but now I‘m really enjoying it! 9mo
jessinikkip @TheReadingMermaid I am! I read one really good book about Thomas More and hos time in Henrys court and now I find myself stuck reading them all. Oh well, at least its clearing my TBR 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @Carolyn11215 that is so wonderful to hear. Adding this to my TBR list. Thank you for sharing with me sweetheart ❤️🤗❤️ 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip haha then that's a good thing! Right? 9mo
jessinikkip @TheReadingMermaid with a list of about 200 books to read, even reading one is a good thing haha 😄😄 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip LOL 😋 I totally agree and I feel your pain. I have 580 books on my TBR list. 😲😲😲 9mo
jessinikkip Lol I stopped counting at 200 and that was last october. Ive gotten so many other books... Ive given up and decided 200 is a not quite so overwhelming large number 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip hahahaha right you are! I don't mind the large number as long as I can keep track. Hence the reason why I have Goodreads 😉 9mo
NovelGirl82 After work I read a bit of Two Can Keep a Secret and A Game of Thrones to make up for all of the charts that I was forced to read 😊 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Reading this tagged book. Good luck in your exams! 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @NovelGirl82 I'm so glad you got some reading in sweetheart ❤️🤗❤️ 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @Jee_HookedOnBookz thank you so much sweetie. I got an 85% on my final exam today so I'm rockin it so far 👍🏻😁👍🏻 hope you enjoy your book hun. 9mo
greenhairdontcare @TheReadingMermaid I‘m enjoying all of them. Farenheit is the only fiction I‘m reading, & it is scaring me a little, just because I could see it really happening! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @TheReadingMermaid yayyyyyyyy congratulations!!! How are you celebrating?? 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @Jee_HookedOnBookz with a beer and a book my dear! 📘🍻😁 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @TheReadingMermaid woot woot! That's the best way! 👍🏼👍🏼❤️😀 9mo

#WhatAreYouReading #Wednesday

cassiopia Today I'm crocheting while binge watching Netflix. (All of my books are currently packed) 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @cassiopia Awe man, that sucks ☹️ but I guess it's giving you a well-deserved break from reading for a while right? 10mo
cassiopia @TheReadingMermaid It does suck, I packed them too early lol. But I have a lot of yarn that I don't want to take with me so hopefully I can whip up a blanket or two over the next month. 10mo

vaanshere My reaction... 10mo
kellyann28 Reading this! 10mo
Anitareads Almost finished with this one. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @kellyann28 interesting, and why does he stay more than one or two nights? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Anitareads what is that one about? 10mo
madamereadsalot1 I'm loving this book. I'm listening to it, and then going back and rereading it, because I like it that much. It's short, and I'm almost done with it. Would have been already if it weren't for the "fine tooth comb" listening. 10mo
kellyann28 @TheReadingMermaid She intended to gather up information for one or two days to basically ghost write a book. I haven't gotten to what makes her stay longer but the family is creepy lol. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @madamereadsalot1 wow that one sounds really interesting. Is there a lot of action in it? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @kellyann28 sounds like my kind of book. I might have to stack that one 😁 10mo
Anitareads Heroine inherits her grandmother's cottage and decides to renovate it with a help of her childhood friend and crush (who is in construction)...slow burn romance... I liked her previous book (tagged) a lot better, this one is just kind of "meh" for me. 10mo
madamereadsalot1 @TheReadingMermaid not really, though it does talk about assasinations. Sometimes relatively graphically. Each chapter changes character. So each chapter has a different voice and a different perspective of a same, yet different story. It's one of those kind of rambling stories without a real plot. I love those kinds, just about the characters. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Anitareads that's cool though. I like those kinds of books too. Kind of like those Hallmark romance movies. Not really great in any way but good little stories. 😊 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @madamereadsalot1 OMG it sounds like it would be action-packed! LOL and it sounds cool but I can't do books that ramble on with no plot. IDK why I cannot do it. I have just never been able to. So my hat's off to you girl!! 😁🎩 10mo
bookaholic1 Snowing outside, so curling up with my cat and reading THE FRIENDS WE KEEP. By Susan Mallery. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @bookaholic1 how are you enjoying it so far? 10mo
madamereadsalot1 @TheReadingMermaid it's really interesting, there may be a plot but I just don't know it yet. Lol! So far it's seems how this particular family's lives were affected during this time period in Bolivia, & how vastly different life actually was for them all. The connections made w/ other people & the breakdown of the relationships in the family & the changes developed in each person. I love learning people's stories, so it's def up my alley. 10mo
bookaholic1 Just started it😊 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @madamereadsalot1 wow you make it sound like such an awesome book girl! I may have to pick it up and try it 😊 I'm just a total sucker for a good story. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @bookaholic1 please let me know 😋 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Elma how are you liking it so far? 10mo
Elma @TheReadingMermaid The Wrath & The Dawn is a little slow so far, but I'm not that far into it. Personality Types is really good, but very academic, so it feels like it's taking me forever to read. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Elma Personality Types does sound like kind of a heavier read but it sounds extremely interesting. It might be one I might have to pick up. Psychology is one of my most favorite subjects to self study. 10mo
Elma @TheReadingMermaid It is very interesting. This is the second book I've read on the enneagram (although I've read lots of different websites and apps) and it's so much more in depth than the first one I read. Although the first one was a great intro. One of my reading goals for this year is to read one book a month on it, because so many in our circle of friends use it. Plus, I find it fascinating. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Elma stacked ✔️ 😁 10mo
Elma @TheReadingMermaid Yay!😊 10mo

TheReadingMermaid @Carolyn11215 how are you enjoying Harry Potter? And will you be with us for our first discussion on the 31st? 10mo
Carolyn11215 @thereadingmermaid, this is a reread for me of the 1st book and I might love it even more the 2nd time around. Will try to be there for discussion. Looking forward to watching the movie again as well! 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Dragon @BookishShelly @Astroneman @DHill @EleniKara @sblbooks @Meaw_catlady how are you enjoying your books so far? Tell me a little bit about them. 😃 10mo
Meaw_catlady I‘m enjoying it ! Not as much as Outlander but there are some interesting things going on and I‘m craving more ! 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Carolyn11215 wonderful! Don't forget you can always scroll back through the news feed or onto my page and join in the conversation at any time 😉 we would love to see you there 🤗 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Meaw_catlady oooo 😗 that sounds like a good read 💕 10mo
Dragon So far it‘s fast paced and I like the full cast audiobook so far. It‘s an epistolary format reminds me of 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Dragon oh that sounds good! I might have to check both of those out 😁 10mo
Minispok Reading Batman: Nightwalker and The Calculating Stars 😊 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Minispok oh how cool! How are they so far? Should I add that Batman to my TBR list? 10mo
toric The Tent the Bucket and Me by Emma Kennedy. I'm only about 20% through but it seems ok so far. I'm finishing Cunk on Everything on hardback and though its funny in places theres a lot of filler 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @toric awe that sucks honey. It irks me when books are like that with just a bunch of filler and no substance. How are the other two books? 10mo
EleniKara I am really enjoying it, my first time reading true crime rather than listening/watching but it‘s this one woman‘s search for the golden state killer and just very suspenseful but also dark and interesting 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @EleniKara oh that sounds really good too! I left true crime novels that don't just sit and spit out a bunch of information. I like the ones that actually have a narrative and a plot to them. Have you ever read The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule? 10mo
EleniKara No I haven‘t but I‘ve heard very good things and been meaning to. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @EleniKara oh I highly recommend reading it. It is honestly one of the best true crime novels I have ever read in my life. It's Ann Rule's story about how she actually knew Ted Bundy revolving around the Ted Bundy case with the murders he committed the trials his escapes and finally his execution. It is a really really good book and told very well. 10mo
Bookjunkie57 I am reading (tagged) though I‘m not really enjoying it. I‘m on 8 % in so I‘ll stick it out a bit longer. 10mo
Bookjunkie57 I am listening to (tagged) and enjoying it immensely. Almost finished. 10mo
Astroneman I‘m reading the third book of Outlander.... it‘s not good like the first and the second book of the serie 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Bookjunkie57 how come you're not enjoying the first book? Is there something about the book you just don't like? Or is it just not clicking with you? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Astroneman yes that is the problem that I have with series books. I so desperately want to finish them once I start them but the books preceding the first and second are usually not as good as the others. Or maybe I just set my standards too high 🤷🏻‍♀️ 10mo
Bookjunkie57 Main character goes missing in Vegas for a few hours and no one even looked for her. Then they spend a lot of time giving her 💩 because of how she looks with a hangover. It‘s apparently a trigger for me. In my mind she may have been roofied and kidnapped. But she‘s fine so I‘m taking my over-dramatics and moving on. 10mo
Peaceful_Reader I just finished Black Girls must die exhausted by Jayne Allen. Good. 10mo
Soubhiville I‘ve got several books going: Good Omens, The Book of Dust- La Belle Sauvage, and Don‘t Call Me Princess. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Bookjunkie57 😳 I think that would get to me too. I don't like books that under play things like being roofied and kidnapped. But you are enjoying your other book correct? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Peaceful_Reader @Soubhiville how are you enjoying your books so far? 10mo
Bookjunkie57 Yes The Paper Magician is a wonderful adventure. I‘m happy it‘s a series cause that means I won‘t have to let go of this world just yet. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Bookjunkie57 LOL 😋 aren't series great? 10mo
TheSpineView I have never read The Devinche Code. Currently reading Head On by John Scalzi and Ensnare by Leah Moyes 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @TheSpineView I have never read it either. This will be my first time reading this specific book or anything by Dan Brown. So far I like it though. How are you enjoying your current reads? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Redwritinghood oh that one looks good. I may have to stack that! 💕 10mo
CherylC I‘m just starting Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak. 10mo
SailorMoon And here I am, bugging you as asked! ? I loved "The Da Vinci Code"! I read it in HS, and I remember finishing my test in a heartbeat and spending the remaining part of the class reading it ? I am on "Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe", but my troubled eye is really bothering me today... so no reading for me ? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @SailorMoon hey their sweetness. I'm so glad you decided to bug me 🤗😘 You should give your eye a rest and go to audiobooks if it's bothering you. I know that would definitely be what I would do. Do you have any access to them? 10mo
SailorMoon Hi!!! ❤ I tried them, but I can't keep focused 🤣 plus Italian audiobooks are nor really good (they are usually read in a plain voice), and we don't have a good selection of English ones on our apps! But if you can suggest a website I can dowload them from, I'll be glad to check them out!!! 10mo
SailorMoon Thx! Unfortunately, this app has a different library in each Country, and I can't download the .com version... it automatically downloads itself in the .it version with just a few English audiobooks! But thanks anyway, I appreciate the thought!!! 🥰 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @SailorMoon oh darn it that's the best company that I know of to get audiobooks from. If I find any other options I will definitely let you know though ok? 10mo
SailorMoon @TheReadingMermaid thank you so much fo the thought! ❤ 10mo

Bookjunkie57 Thank you! 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Blackbird oooo 😗 The stranger beside Me was so good! At this very moment I'm reading the tagged book. and while the writing is a bit choppy because it was translated from Indonesian I find the story very interesting so I am continuing to read. It's just really capturing my attention for some reason 😁 10mo
kellyann28 Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone while I'm at work and then this at night: 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @kellyann28 oh, how is Where the Crawdads Sing? I have heard a lot of good things about this book and I'm wondering if I should check into it. 10mo
Blackbird @TheReadingMermaid ah I'm loving the book too (Bundy's). Have fun reading 😀 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Blackbird you too sweetie! Happy Wednesday 🤗 10mo
kellyann28 @TheReadingMermaid I'm not too far into it yet (about 20%) but the storytelling and dialect are spot on and wonderful. I am really liking it so far! 10mo

TheReadingMermaid @kellyann28 that sounds awesome. Let me know what you think when you're done would you please? 😃 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @CaroPi OMG that sounds so adorable ❤️💕 10mo
TheBookKeepers Dark Chains, Thunderhead, & just started Allegedly on audio 10mo
kellyann28 Absolutely 💜💙❤ 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @TheBookKeepers oooo 😗 Dark Chains sounds interesting. What do you think of it so far? It sounds like a heartwrencher 💔 10mo
TheBookKeepers It definitely is an emotional story! It‘s a shorter read (230 pages) and self published by the author. I find her writing style a pleasure to read!! It‘s a memoir/motivational genre so I‘m real excited to see her move from victim into survivor in the second half of the book 🤞. About halfway through it now & so far it‘s a pick! 10mo
RamsFan1963 Bug Jack Baron by Norman Spinrad, Damnation Island by Stacy Horn and listening to Mythology by Edith Hamilton. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @RamsFan1963 what are you doing while you're listening? It always amazes me what people do while they're listening to audiobooks 🤩 10mo
RamsFan1963 @TheReadingMermaid I started with some laundry and dishes, now am about to walk to the mall for lunch and the bookstore (of course). I read Hamilton's Mythology years and years ago, but its wonderful to hear the stories told by a good narrator. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @RamsFan1963 amazing! I 💖 it! 10mo

TheReadingMermaid @PagesByTheWater why struggling? 10mo
IamIamIam Wayside School is Falling Down, trying to get into Fruit of the Drunken Tree on audio and my boyfriend, 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @IamIamIam fruit of the drunken tree sounds interesting. Are you struggling with this one? If so is it the writing style? It sounds like a heavy read. 10mo
IamIamIam @TheReadingMermaid I'm just about an hour in and it's not terribly hard to get through, but my daughter's been home sick so I'm hesitant to listen to it with her around. I find books with Spanish in them hard on audio because I can't switch gears that fast and I don't understand Spanish as well as I think I do! Lol, I speak Taco Bell more than Spanish... 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @IamIamIam lmao "I speak Taco Bell" ??? on a serious note I'm sorry that your daughter is home sick. I hope that she feels better soon. And I can totally understand not wanting to read an audiobook like that around her. Like I said it seems like a very heavy read. 10mo
IamIamIam @TheReadingMermaid Aww, thanks! 1st grade Creeping Crud is for real!!! I saw the list @LibrarianRyan posted for the Litsy Awards & realized I don't read enough popular fiction. Lol, trying to jump right in. Usually my heavy reads involve WWII and the holocaust. I need to get out of my uncomfortable story comfort zone. 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @IamIamIam same. I read a lot about World War II myself. It was a very interesting and yet very sad point in history in a lot of different ways. I tend to not read a lot of popular fiction because I find that most books are overrated IMPO. But you are right we need to move out of our comfort zones once in awhile 🤪 10mo
PagesByTheWater @TheReadingMermaid I don‘t like the MC. Honestly the book could be better improved if it was written from the love interests POV instead 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @PagesByTheWater oh no! That sucks I'm sorry hon. ☹️ 10mo
LokiDokey I'm reading Legendary and listening to It. I have a 1 and 1/2 hour round trip commute (if no traffic) to school 4 times a week, so I like knocking out Stephen King's bigger books this way. 10mo

MsLeah8417 “If You Come Softly” by Jacqueline Woodson 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @MsLeah8417 oh my gosh that sounds so cute! How is it so far? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Soubhiville that sounds fascinating. I may have to pick this one up. How are you liking it so far? 10mo
Soubhiville About halfway through and it‘s good! There are typos, hopefully they‘ll be fixed before it gets published in May. I saw that you didn‘t like The Air You Breathe... I loved it... would you be interested in trading this book for that one after I finish it (if you still have it that is...) 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Soubhiville sure I would! That sounds like an excellent idea. Yeah that book just wasn't for me unfortunately. But I can definitely see why so many people loved it. It just failed to capture my attention. 10mo
Soubhiville Yay! If you want to wait to decide for sure until I review this, I‘ll tag you in the review. Although since I 5 starred TAYB maybe you don‘t want to go by my opinion 🤣. Either way, you can email me at magicbelly (at) gmail.com 😊 10mo
TheReadingMermaid @Soubhiville lol nah I'll trade with you for sure. Just tag me in the review let me know when you're done 🤗 10mo

TheReadingMermaid @MsLeah8417 oh really? I just looked at the synopsis and found it very intriguing is all. I have stacked the book though. It does seem like a very good one. Should I get out my box of tissues when I read it? 😢 10mo
