Latest impulse buy. I shouldn‘t have gone to the bookstore alone. This is just one of the four books I bought... and two pairs of socks... and a set of D&D dice. Anyway, I‘m starting this book tonight; I‘m in fantasy mood 😃

Morning coffee and a book too deep for this early in the morning; must be Friday. The house is finally taking shape after the big move. Books are unpacked and the bookshelves are up, and somehow there is still so much to do! Therefore and just going to take a half an hour before getting ready to go to work and read.

It‘s been a while since I‘ve been here. Life happens. Well, I just bought a house that has room for a full library. I‘m really excited to start putting everything together. Almost everything I own is in boxes, with the exception of the kitchen. My challenge is to set everything up before Christmas, including the 14 IKEA Billy bookshelves I have to put together and fill it with my books, which are also in boxes! Wish me luck.

The Club Dumas | Arturo Perez-Reverte, Sonia Soto

I finished this book a couple of weeks ago and I‘m still digesting it. It was fantastic. There is an old movie loosely based on this book: “The Ninth Gate” with Johnny Depp, and it‘s not nearly as good as the book. Now I want to get my hands on a Spanish copy since the author is from Spain.

1- finish reading “Oliver Twist” and I‘m going to go watch “Annihilation.” 2- 5‘6 not short, not tall, just average. 3- about a year, and love it. It‘s like the Stars Hollow of Florida. 4- “Oliver Twist” and “Anna and the French Kiss.” 5- me at work photobombed by my coworker. @jesshowbooks #friyayintro

I don‘t know why I bought this book today when I know for a fact I won‘t be able to start reading it for at least a month, maybe even more. The fact is I really want to read it, but I have so much school reading this semester😭 anyhow, now it‘s waiting for me. #bookishproblems #firstworldproblems

I just finished reading “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” for my Victorian Lit class and was very pleased with it. Have I mentioned I have to read a book a week in this class? Which this one was the shortest of the lot. Not looking forward to “Villette,” and I already started “Oliver Twist.” I‘m trying to stay ahead, but we all know it won‘t happen!

Better late than never! 1-I mostly read paperback books. 2- eight, fairly average. 3-cheese and wine. 4- lately I‘ve been in a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer Kick.” 5- I have no idea who to tag! But I thank @kidamy for tagging me. #friyayintro @jesshowbooks

I finally got to open my #muglove box 😊 First, many thanks to @TheKidUpstairs for hosting this awesome exchange. Also, thank you @TricksyTails for this amazing box. Kvothe‘s mug 😍😍😍 I just love it. It is now my favorite mug in the world since I have and unhealthy obsession with King Killer Chronicles 😊😊😊 I also love everything else, but the mug was the star of the box.

1- Puffy, but I like them both. 2- torn between “On Writing “ by Stephen King, and “The way of Kings” by Brandon Sanderson (although I‘m only half way through, so good though!). 3- Homework, when you are a graduate student you have no life. 4- Speak every language. Imagine all the books I could read 😊 5- I graduated with a bachelors of Anthropology, though I took a lot of literature and history courses. #friyayintro @jesshowbooks

This book was the first read of this year for me. I already finished it, and this is one of my favorite passages. That being said, it‘s weird for me to start the year with a non-Fiction Book, although, I always tend to read two books at the time: a fiction and a non-fiction. I can read more than two, but they all have to be different genres.

TommieMarie74 That‘s what I do too. I can read multiple books but NOT multiple fiction books. They are all different genres. 5y

A few days ago I watched the trailer for the movie and it looks brilliant. I met the author a few months ago when I went to one of his lectures and bought a few of his books in the process. He is a Florida local by the way. Anyhow, I decided to move this to the top of my tbr and hopefully I will finish it before Christmas. What are you reading this weekend?

Funny story: Friday I realized I forgot my book on my way to work, because I‘m a really sad human being I stopped by a Publix ( which to my non-Floridian peeps: it‘s a grocery store sort of like a Kroger) and bought this book... in a grocery store. Anyway, Not my usual type of reading, but enjoying it so far an only like 70 pages left.
