So it took nearly three years but I finally got struck down with Covid and I‘m mad about it and I feel like hot garbage. My head feels like molasses and fog.

Chrissyreadit I hope you can rest and recover quickly. 1w
Chelsea.Poole 😖 hope it passes soon!! 1w
marleed Oh I‘m sorry. I hope it passes quickly and allows you to move through Dec and January as super-immunized. 6d

Read for a book club on Monday. Got my boyfriend to read it too. Then we watched the movie last night. I thought it was going to utterly destroy me and then it didn‘t and I kind of felt let down.

Beatlefan129 I felt the same way. The reviews made me think I was going to feel really emotional but then all I felt was so so 2w

@suvata @BeckyWithTheGoodBooks I‘ve had a pretty hectic and bad last few months. There was a lot of maintenance on my complex and then I had a break up with my boyfriend of over five years and that‘s been a struggle. Bit of a repeat from my last post but just wanted to let you guys know too and that it‘s on it‘s way tomorrow. I‘m really sorry this happened. I‘m not normally like this.

BeckyWithTheGoodBooks @allureofbeauty I‘m so sorry you‘re going through so much. Don‘t worry about it too much. Take care of yourself. ❤️ 1mo

The Paris Apartment | Lucy Foley

I finally got this one finished. And I‘m so sorry it took me so long. My life kind of fell apart in Sept and Oct. I went thru a breakup of my five plus year relationship this month and it‘s been very hard. But this will be on the mail the first and again I‘m sorry. @cwarnier @kellyann28 @staci.reads

cwarnier I am so sorry to hear that. I hope you can turn your life around for the better.
Don't feel bad, about still having this. I have 3 of our books in my possession right now. I have fallen off the reading wagon recently too. I will have “I Must Betray You“ in the mail in the next few days.

staci.reads @allureofbeauty Andrea, I received a book in the mail from you, but it wasn't The Paris Apartment. It was a book called The Cutting Season. 3w
allureofbeauty @staci.reads omg. Omg omg omg omg. I somehow swapped the envelopes. That means @Kappadeemom got the Paris apartment. Omg. I am so sorry. Idek how I managed that. Beyond I have no brain right now. Im not sure what would be the best way to fix this. I could maybe PayPal both of you what it cost to media mail them and you could send them to each other. I am so fucking sorry. I can‘t believe I did this. I‘ve never done something like that before. 3w
staci.reads @allureofbeauty no worries - mistakes happen - don't beat yourself up over it. Do you still have my email address from the initial email Suvata sent? If so, just send me Kappadeemom's address and I'll send it directly to her. 3w
allureofbeauty @staci.reads emailed you today. 🖤 3w

September was an awful month for me. I had a lot of maintenance stuff going on in my apartment so I had to do a lot of cleaning and barely got any sleep. It was an anxiety ridden month. I really hope the next month is better. I have some books to read next month that I‘m looking forward to at least.

I finally got around to reading this even though I‘ve loved the movie so much since it first came out.

I ended up with a second piece of free pie for my birthday (I somehow got two emails and I don‘t look free pie in the mouth - I put it into my mouth.).
I finished this for a upcoming book club and I really enjoyed it. It was my first from this author and I know a lot of people love her. What else should I read from her?
