I've been in and out with this one for a few months. Luckily I don't get to confused if it's been a bit since I picked it up. Hope to maybe finish it this weekend, unlikely though lol😂😂😂

Nice quick little read. I love a good suspenseful story that could be paranormal, could be crazy human!

Part 1 of my birthday haul! I only spent part of my gift card but I have a coffee date with a friend Sunday so I plan to use the rest then!!

I read both books during a history course in college. Our final project was a 3 page paper on the books and the symbolism used in it. I turned in a 15 pages paper, and could have wrote more. I will continue to recommend this book to everyone and anyone. #bannedbooks are usually ones everyone needs to read.

Thank you @Scochrane26 for the awesome #FFFS package! Unfortunately there was a lone chocolate that was in there that melted ALL over the popcorn packages (I just ate them tonight lol, so no worries) so that's why it wasn't pictured!!!

I loved this book. There were a few I wish would have been included (maybe a Bad Girls pt. 2??). This is good for high school aged girls to read. The real stand out was the artwork, amazing!!!

#BFC21 Goals for February:
1) Pack lunch for work 3/5 days a week at least (I'm terrible at remembering to do this so we shall see 😂😂😂😂)
2) Finish at least 4 Fitbit personal challenges to get more steps in!!!
3)Read 5 days a week (let's try this one again 😉)

@wanderinglynn

#BFC21 January check in
Well.... I see areas I can still improve lol
1) drink more water- going good, can still use more at work but I am making a conscious effort at least!
2) Read 5 days a week-I'm just not reading very much right now...Maybe now that I have my book cases up it will spur that on!!
3)Steps goal-needs work, but I knew with the new job I would, so that's OK.

Overall, not great but I know what to work on 😊 @wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Great job! 🙌🏻 You‘re making good progress. 1y

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs
1) The tagged book. My oldest sister bought me a set of the first three. She's gone so I hold these close.
2) My Sisters Keeper. I love Jodi Picoult, but I read this after the movie came out and I had it stuck in my head that I'd hate it, though I never saw the movie?
3) Another Jodi Picoult, Song of the Humpback Whales. I just couldn't get into it. I'm so glad it wasn't my first book of hers that I read!
@haileybean

Tineke I disliked Songs of the humpback whale too. It was her first book and I could tell. 1y
Eggs # 1 - how lovely 😘😥 #3 - I was not a fan either 1y
