Well I haven‘t started my holiday stories with my students so you‘ll see a huge jump next week! I‘m hoping to work on some bingos and get some movies watched this week too! I read 10 books so far, 2 movies and a show that had a Christmas episode. I want to work on some other point grabbers too! #mistletoemaniacs #wintergames2021 @Clwojick

Clwojick Wow! You‘re doing great! ❤️ 3d

Maybe it was okay to skip this one as I didn‘t love it but I put it on my November TBR and pushed through it. Sort of a boring dystopian novel that didn‘t really excite or grab me at all.

Loved this 3rd book, one of my fave cozy mysteries now and love how the relationship is developing slowly between Arthur and Gwen, love the mysteries and how they are building with each book! Such a great series! They were on sale on Amazon too not sure if they still are. The Avalon Café 6-in-1 Collection: Six Cozy Witch Mysteries

I don‘t know if you planned this to come on a Monday but you are amazing @CoffeeNBooks it has been a rough year but my friends and community are getting me through it! To quote a teacher of mine last week - “it‘s only been a quarter and it feels like we‘ve taught a whole year already…” Thank you so much for the love and thinking of me! ❤️ I love my #litsylove family so much!

PS - hubby demands I make the coffee right away 🤣

Sorry for the lazy graphic but here‘s my week 2 point total. I think overall I‘m at 5435. Hopefully I‘ll be reading more this week… I‘ve been doing pretty good but my hours seem low for a weekly total compared to the past. I think I‘m just in the mood for shorter books right now. #scarathlon2021 #teamhendrix @StayCurious

Wow! I amazed myself by finishing 35 books in September even with how crazy work was. My friends kept me reading and maybe I escaped into some books. Some stand outs were The Circus Rose, The Seafire Trilogy, the beautiful illustrations in Empire of the Vampire and such a good start to a series, Quince and Almost American Girl.

Wow what an amazing book! An absolutely thrilling tale of love, the circus and sisters. I forgot I had picked this up because it was a retelling of Snow White and Rose Red with an LGBTQ twist and saw it on my shelf and gave it a read. Well worth it! I loved all the characters and would highly recommend!
