Happy #StrangerThings Day 🥞 I can‘t believe I forgot tagged book and the novelizations of the Upside Down world have been languishing on my TBR... okay maybe it shouldn‘t be that much of a surprise. Anyways enough waffling about that and time to revisit Hawkins, IN.

I was thrilled to see tagged book be released as an audiobook and I‘m finally getting around to listening to the Libro.fm I bought months ago. I tried so many times to read print version only to give up because how meticulous Hutton is with his research of modern Paganism.
Pistachio on the other hand was not as delighted as I was and immediately fell back asleep once I stopped annoying him to pose for a pic. #catsoflitsy

I‘m going to be on hiatus from litsy while I go through the nightmare process of not renewing my lease at current apartment and submitting applications in search of a new one. I had hopes hearing from one management approving my app, but now I‘m on pins & needles as it‘s been 5 days since I‘ve heard from anybody. I‘m giving them until Wednesday to contact me before I begin another search. Or maybe drink the tallest glass of wine to calm my nerves.
