I just realized this is the first book I have read in a month and a half. May was a tough month reading wise for me but im.happy I was able to finish something. This was also a great book to help me work on getting out of my funk. I recommend it to anyone who needs an easy read.

Day two of self care

Grave Sight | Charlaine Harris

May is mental health awareness month and as I've posted briefly before I was having a period of major anxiety and depression. I've been told I have to work on my self care. So here I am, in a coffee face mask, soaking in a lush bath taking care of myself. I hope you all do the same. Love xoxox

PatriciaU Take care and enjoy. ❤️❤️❤️ 4w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m so glad you are taking care of you, but please remember that talking to your doctor/health care provider about anxiety and depression is self care too. Self care is so important, but it can‘t heal all wounds alone. 4w
Callemarie @Riveted_Reader_Melissa dont worry I'm already ahead of you. I've been talking to a counselor as well who also suggested I self care. I've got all bases covered. ❤ 4w

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Callemarie So glad to hear it! I worry when good friends and family emphasize self care and “just think positive thoughts” over medical help. My grandmother was a big, it‘s all in your head get over it type, it took years to convince her it is literally in your head, and dopamine and serotonin, just like asthma‘s in the lungs, and heart disease is in the heart. Self care can make all more manageable, but it won‘t cure asthma, heart disease, etc 4w

Hi guys. I promise I havent forgotten about Litsy. I've been battling with some pretty bad anxiety the past two weeks that has left me literally cowering away from all social interaction. Not sure where it came from and im not sure if im in the clear since it likes to manifest out of nowhere for me but I am taking time to read after my reading hiatus. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday and make sure to always find time for yourself.

Suet624 I‘m so sorry to hear. I hope you feel better soon. 2mo

What. A. Depressing. Story. I started off HATING Briony and at the end.... just felt sad for her. I liked how McEwan wrote the story but I turned that last page just feeling sad.

bookseller_cate I‘ve read multiple novels by McEwan (and am waiting for my boss to surrender the advanced copy of the new/forthcoming novel). What I love about McEwan is that he always subverts the reader‘s expectations: 3mo

And to be honest, I haven't cried this hard reading a book since Me Before You by JoJo Moyes about 4 years ago. The book is slow to start but reels you in and saws through your heartstrings. Get a copy of this story. You wont regret it!

This was a great book to listen to on audio. I never knew how many unsolved murders there were that the police believed were committed by the zodiac.

Now I want to go watch the movie again

Also, I just finished the first episode of Shrill on hulu and it hit me with all the feels. Being a girl overweight growing up, the main character really hit home on the thoughts she has in regards to her self image and body. Has anyone read the book?

This story does detail the gruesome and horrific murders carried out by the infamous BTK killer but it's also a story about a girl who discovers that the man she has loved and called dad is a monster that no one knew about. The book discusses elements of trauma that the family endured during the wake of the arrest and how they were left to pick up the mess their father left. It's an interesting read and a sad one at that. I gave this 3.5 🌟

This book is an interesting read. It really is. It raises an interesting argument, or a catch-22 really, of garment factories and I'd we should boycott to end the conditions they work in. On one hand, we boycott and it shuts down factories, making an end to sweatshop work conditions. On the other we boycott, and people who REALLY need the job to barely support their family loses that job. I'd be interested to.hear others take on it

lynneamch No simple answers, right? Seems like trade deals have to include human rights issues and verification of working conditions, etc. Not easy. 4mo

Man I'm on a semi struggle bus with this book. The writing is honestly really good buy since its non fiction I feel like my mind is making it out to be like an assignment for school which is what is killing my reading buzz to get through it. I decided to take a hot bath with my lush bath bomb that @Bookcation74 got me and I'm going to hope i get through like 85% of it tonight.

Reviewsbylola I struggle with NF too. I typically prefer narrative non fiction or memoirs. Otherwise it‘s generally too dry. 4mo
