I don't re-read books, but, the other night, in an effort to focus my brain on something for long enough to fall asleep, I borrowed this on Libby and am 18% in. (I need to acquire a paper copy.)

Re-reading is fantastic, especially when you're about to start a major next phase in your life (LSAT prep course). 😂

wanderinglynn Good luck on the LSAT. 🍀 And if you need any insight or have any questions about law school, hit me up. It‘s been a few years since I graduated, but the legal world doesn‘t change that much. 😉 1mo
Bianca @wanderinglynn I'm sure I'll have questions! Thank you! 1mo

This isn't exactly book related, but it is dog related. My neighbors' puggo Gracie needs surgery so she can breathe better and have a better quality of life. I started a GoFundMe to help pay the pre-operation exam and testing fees.

Not too shabby for falling asleep earlier than I thought I would.

Made it halfway through the audiobook of My Life in France, a quarter of the way through The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison, and finished two ebooks. I'm officially back to enjoying reading!

Thank the gods a comics-loving friend lent me the first two volumes and proceeded to ask me if I've read them multiple times since. I read the first volume yesterday and the second today.

Fantastic! Ass-kicking! Females! Loving! Their! Bodies! Exactly as they are! And not apologizing for existing!!

10/10 would read again

I haven't been able to finish reading a book since the end of the year because stress from preparing to move plus busy at work.

Now that I'm in my new place, I think this is a good one to start my reading year with. #ya #dogsoflitsy

I finished Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan's Disaster Zone by Richard Lloyd Parry last night and wanted to continue on my nonfiction streak.

AlaMich Masha Gessen is so interesting. I‘ve never read any of her writing but I‘ve heard her interviewed numerous times. The book sounds fascinating...depressing, but fascinating. (edited) 6mo

Ghosts of the Tsunami | Richard Lloyd Parry
post image

I can't seem to get into any fiction, even in audio. So I'm sticking with nonfiction (the only books I've been able to finish this month).

Since finding out I have ADD last month, I've wanted to understand even more urgently what it's like for other people processing and experiencing life, even what we consider to be extreme experiences. It's quite something to realize that the way your mind works isn't how most people's minds work.

I'm in the mood for dark material right now. The holidays are difficult for me (and many others). You'd think I'd gravitate toward lighter stuff, but, no, let's talk about crime, death, human nature, and years-old mysteries. 🤷‍♀️

Ashley_Nicoletto The holidays are so hard for so many. 🖤 enjoy your crime all you want! 6mo

I'm a little behind on #twointhree but it's ok because I was doing other things like watching the entire first season of American Vandal (so funny) and hanging out with my dad.

I did read an entire 51k word fanfic. That counts right? Now I'm trying to finish this and there's so much 😭. @Samplergal

I read this in one sitting last night. Instead of having a real conversation with my roommate and unloading the dishwasher, I devoured this.

During one chapter/scene, I had a short, cathartic cry. Books don't make me cry; I rarely cry. This book confronts important issues surrounding mental illness. Like, it's not your fault it's happening to you. Like, you can survive it.

Recommend for any high school classroom and school library. #ya
