Favorite book of the year so far! Gosh this was exactly what I needed. All my favorite tropes! Or most of them. Nerdy love, fake relationship, snarky humor- this had it all!

Been in a bit of a slump so I‘ve been relistening to Harry Potter of course. Need to work on taking time for myself as that‘s flown out the window the last few weeks. Sometimes I don‘t know how all you moms do it! Going to try some good old feel good romance and tea!

Avanders That‘s the toughest part, hands down. But it really is important you find that time. Romance & tea sounds good, but try to schedule it in - make sure you get it. I did not manage that part well and it has directly impacted my health. Let people help! Ask people to help! Whatever it takes. You matter too! ♥️♥️ 2w

Just nope. Way too much casual HARD drug use. I will never be ok with that. Lack of storyline with respect to the magic. Vulgar references to sex- im a romance loving, Hallmarkie for a reason. Dirty is fine, even good sometimes, but not without the romance. #lmpbc

BethM The drug use legit pissed me off😂 #jobhazard 4w
LibrarianRyan I agree. I had a hard time with the drug use as well. Mainly that it was so free and accepted. I get this was a party book, but I think you can party without the drugs. 4w
BethM @LibrarianRyan totally agree. And it wasn‘t like it was “just marijuana” it was drugs that will legitimately kill you. What kind of messaging is that?! Come on. 4w

@LibrarianRyan the #lmpbc came! I‘m a little confused though bc there‘s three books and a book sleeve? I know you said you sent next month‘s early but that still leaves a book unaccounted for?

LibrarianRyan I sent both books I suggested. I can not remember which team member said they had not read a graphic novel or a manga so I sent one of each. promised Neverland is the one Ibelieve we chose together and Sing no evil was second place. Rockstar is this months book. And I almost always send my books in a sleeve Incase of mailing damage. 1mo
BethM @LibrarianRyan ok! I‘ve never read manga is it back to front? 1mo
LibrarianRyan @BethM Yes. And if you open it wrong, (at least in this book) it says that hey you are reading it wrong, and shows you how to read it. Because not only do you read from the back to the front, the panels are read left to right. (But word bubbles are still read right to left, up to down in a single pane). 1mo

2. Yoga and mediation 3x week
3. Hard workout 1xweek

Not hitting these yet but not totally missing them either. #workinprogress #bfc

#thingsihaveincommon blue cover. This series is so good! Not the usual formulaic Nora Roberts. I‘m totally invested in all the characters and the world. My one complaint is that Marco says Girl! a lot and it feels disingenuous. Now I have to wait until November for the last one- ugh. 😂

#thingswehaveincommon blue covers. I‘ve never read this and we had a rummage sale which caused my husband to unearth his copy. (Apparently stolen from his elementary library-though he denies this) The only way to save it was to read it. I quite liked it. I‘ll be keeping it for our son.

Clwojick The whole series is great! 2mo

Life has been crazy busy! I haven‘t been reading, or hitting my #bfc goals. (Or remember to post my march check in) I feel like I‘m just constantly running and exhausted lol. Took a mental health day Friday to slow down some and set up our rummage sale. So I guess I didn‘t slow down? Lol. But got to listen to a few hours of the tagged book before my SIL came to set her stuff up. So I call it a win.

And munchkin got unexpectedly moved up in rooms at daycare bc he has outpaced his old room. He‘s done great this week but has definitely been more clingy and anxious at home. Settling in though :)
