Taking a little break from #deweys24hourreadathon so... which would you choose? I think I‘d pick grey and visit Rhys, Feyre and the gang. #acotar

Meeko93 I might go with Red. It doesn't say that I can't choose someone new everyday. 2y

I spent half the day running errands and the other half paint for an upcoming art show. Now I‘m sitting on the couch reading with this guy. His name is Fitz and he‘s the newest addition to the family.

Just finished this. I‘m about 13 hours into #25infive #readathon. Now to start the next book in the series or take a bath and hope it helps with the back pain. Or maybe I‘ll #audiobath. Is that a thing? It‘s about to be.

I signed up for Book of the Month last Tuesday. How long once you get a tracking number does it usually take to actually ship? It‘s said waiting on pick up since Wednesday.

Redwritinghood It takes a few days. Not sure how many but I know nothing happens for awhile after I get my tracking number. 2y
BeautyAndABook Obviously I have no patience lol. Thanks for answering though. 🙂 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So not gonna lie, I had a hard time starting this book because someone didn‘t use a spoiler alert. But turns out, I liked this book WAY more than ACOTAR. This is the first series I‘ve read by this author but I like her writing so much I just bought Throne of Glass. Don‘t think I‘ll be getting much sleep between the two series, I have a feeling it will be worth it though.

Saw this at a bookstore today. Took them to the front and told the guy they didn‘t fit on the shelf and squishing them like that was unacceptable. #booksshouldnotbebent #badbookstore

I‘m a little late with the update but here we go... I‘m slacking on all the challenges except Goodreads. I‘ve got a 20 book goal for March with at least 6 of them fitting the challenges. I probably won‘t hit it, but I‘m going to try. I‘m probably going to up my Goodreads challenge to 150 also.

Truth! I‘m only 27 pages in and this book is already giving my highlighter a workout.

I forgot to post my #bookhaul. I stopped by #halfpricebooks today. Got a couple new #bulletjournals, a book that‘s been on my TBR for a little while and some books for the littles. Oh and do you see those Austen‘s??? I‘m in love.

Austen_Nerd I love the covers!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Chelleo How do you like the Point Journals? 2y
BeautyAndABook @Chelleo They‘re ok. I like that they have the band to keep them closed and the paper is decent. But the dots on the paper are really light on a lot of the pages. I‘m new to using a bujo and these were the first I bought so I don‘t have much to compare them to though. 2y
Chelleo Check Scribbles That Matter. They‘re my fave. 2y

It's been almost a week since I finished this book and I'm still not sure I'm ready to write a full review. I loved this book... until about half way through it. Then the author made a decision that killed this book for me. I literally was shaking I was so mad. I had to force myself to finish the book.

I know it's technically Saturday but... 1. There are so many but The Outsiders came to mind first.
2. The buffalo plaid house shoes on my feet right now say plaid.
3. Ketchup. I've never had gravy on my fries, didn't even know that was a thing until recently.
4. Neither. It's coke, even if its not Coca-Cola. #FridayFrigesDay @SpeculativeFemale

abbsinwonderland Looooove the Outsiders. Book and movie 😍😍💜 2y
