Preach girl! ❤️Camila❤️
“Mommy, when are you coming back?”
Yup, that pretty much sums it up!
“Where are you going? What are you doing? What are you eating? Can I have some? Can I sleep in your bed? Can you get me a snack? I‘m hungry. I‘m thirsty.” #momlife @TheReadingMermaid
Only a quick 20 minute walk this morning. Still too much ice and snow for this little guy. I had to carry him part of the way home because his little paws were cold. 🥶🐶 I‘ll try to hit the gym this afternoon to get my steps in!
My gentleman caller and one of my most favorite people has finally joined Litsy. Let‘s show @mjester some Litsy love! ❤️❤️❤️
My first 5 ⭐️ read of 2019. #blameitonlitsy never disappoints. I loved everything about this book. Unputdownable, amazing character development, strong female protagonist, and to say it‘s beautifully written is an understatement. This was my first Taylor Jenkins Reid, but now I am anxious to get my hands on anything she‘s ever written. Everyone read this book, it‘s too good to miss! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
So cold today they actually delayed school. -16 degrees this morning, but I made it to the gym. And because it‘s New England, where Mother Nature tries to fit in all the seasons in one week, it‘s supposed to be 40 degrees tomorrow. 🙄 #litsywalkers #audiowalk
I had never read John Boyne before Litsy, but now Im in love. He is a brilliant writer. I‘ve absolutely loved everything I‘ve read by him. A Ladder to the Sky was was a clever, masterful, work of art. ❤️🧡💛💚💙
Wayyyy to cold for walking outside today. Finishing up the tagged audiobook, and making homemade chicken soup for my poor sick boy (must be going around @Cinfhen hope your brood is on the mend) #litsywalkers @kaye
What to read next? Excited to jump in to my “sci-fi starter kit” sent to me by the fabulous @slightlyfoxed but I can‘t decide which one to read first? Suggestions for my next #winterstormreadathon pick?
Beautifully written and at times heart wrenching. Chloe Benjamin‘s book is centered on death, but in the process taps deep psychological questions about life. This is a book that‘ll be hard to stop thinking about long after you‘ve read the last page. Thanks for the recommendation @Mem_ugh

Hoping to finish this one up while it‘s still dark, then brave the snow and start shoveling. Hopefully I can get out of the driveway to make it to the gym, but at this point I can‘t even open the door. #winterstormreadathon #litsywalkers @BookBabe @MrBook @kaye
So busy reading I almost missed the #winterstormreadathon thanks @BookBabe and @MrBook for hosting. I love a good readathon. I‘ll be reading The Immortalists in bed, and listening to A Ladder to the Sky while I‘m out shoveling. Already close to 6 inches here. 🥶
Winter storm warning here in New England. ❄️ They‘re predicting 2+ feet starting this afternoon and going straight through until early Monday morning. Bring on the snowpocalypse, I‘ve got a new book (recommended by @Mem_ugh ), hot beverages, and an adorable puppy to keep me company.
30 minutes was all we could handle In this cold, but at least we got it in before the storm hits. High of 16 degrees Fahrenheit today. 🥶🥶🥶 #audiowalk with John Boyne #irishauthor #booked2019

Finished this gem tonight. After waiting for months for my library hold (started at 366 in queue) it was well worth the wait. Michelle Obama is brilliant, articulate, strong, and inspiring; and so is her book.

With a high of 11 degrees today, just a quick #audiowalk. Too cold to take off my gloves even for pictures. Started listening to this book tonight, been looking forward to it for months!
In my life as a mom of three bada$$ wrestlers, #myshot is a 2 point take down. My son, in his senior year, and final tournament, was not going to miss his shot. He continued to wrestle with a shoulder injury (that we soon after learned was a fractured scapula) to earn points for his team, and not go down without a fight. And by some miracle, he won!

A book that never would have been on my radar if it weren‘t for the recommendation of the lovely @Mem_ugh and @monalyisha for hosting #newyearwhodis I am so glad I read it, and ironically there was a reference in the book to the song by Switched Up, by Nick Grant so now I also get where the #newyearwhodis hashtag came from. Lol, I must be getting old. #notashipasiusedtobe
Super creepy. The quote on the cover from Entertainment Weekly says “We Need to Talk About Kevin meets Gone Girl...” but it reminded me more of Kevin meets Adora and Amma from Sharp Objects. What did everyone else think?
1. Weekend getaway to ring in the new year.
2. More weekend getaways and travel
4. Sending love to @TheReadingMermaid @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cinfhen @C.Perone @elyseh @kaye @blondie @Mem_ugh @slightlyfoxed ❤️❤️❤️
The joy I feel when my library holds come in is something akin to going trick-or-treating in a world where they handed out books instead of candy... It‘s even more satisfying when you started at # 166 in the queue. #thanksobama
I know I‘m late to the party, but starting this one today. Let‘s see if it lives up to all the hype?!?!
Finally finished this chunkster, although it took me more than a month! I really enjoyed this book, I‘d describe it as a cross between Dracula and The Stand. My only complaint was the length, it dragged in some parts, and what took 766 pages could have been said in less than 500. It felt biblical both in proportion and description.
@Mem_ugh My first purchase of the new year (didn‘t take me long). I‘m really looking forward to this one, I‘ve never read a graphic novel before and it also works for #booked2019 #newyearwhodis

Thank you doesn‘t do this justice @slightlyfoxed I love everything so much. I am so excited to spend some time over the holidays with my “sci-fi starter kit.” Ive been coveting these book sleeves forever! Can‘t wait to hunker down this afternoon with my socks and tea and chocolate and start reading. Well worth the wait! Thank you for everything. My cup runneth over.
@TheReadingMermaid thank you for hosting!
