@AmyG your #screamathon package has arrived! Yours will go out this week!

AmyG Did the white box come, too? There were two pckages. (edited) 17h
Chrissyreadit @AmyG yes- it‘s on bottom- I just used a fun color filter. I‘m trying to figure out how to ship a part of your package- I can put it together and risk mess, or give you component pieces and you put together, but not a cool oooh and aaah when you open it.....sigh. 17h
AmyG Yay. I didn‘t see the other box. As for what you send me....you do what you think is best. 😘 (I am so excited and I bet I will love it either way). (edited) 17h

The front and back of the tote and print from the amazing @Gissy

Gissy I saw that tote and I thought in you as a perfect gift. I bought one for me too. I just loved that book. I hope you enjoy it as well as I did.😘❤️❤️❤️❤️ 18h
Chrissyreadit @Gissy the tote is completely amazing! 16h
Gissy @Chrissyreadit I was afraid that you maybe didn't like them or that maybe you had the books already. I just checked your Litsy tbr. As you know, I loved Krampus and Heartless is cute but a little sad😢but I liked the reading. I'm still need to read Sorcery of Thorn. 8h

Chrissyreadit @Gissy they were all on my TBR- I removed them after opening your package! I‘m so excited- and my son is too- he is interested in also reading Krampus and Sorcery of Thorns. You rock! I‘m also in love with the tote- it is a great quality! 7h
Chrissyreadit @Gissy this really came at a good time- I have felt so overwhelmed and even though I was away this weekend it was very stressful- although my cousin and I worked together to meet challenges- your package was a vacation from stress and a burst of pampering. Thank you so much! It is hard to express over this how much it meant! 7h

I‘m reading 100% for me tonight. It has been a day of mourning in my area. A beloved co worker from my past job with Birth To Three was killed by a drunk driver. She served families in her job and as a volunteer at a special camp. We will feel her loss keenly for a very long time.

twohectobooks I think the Pendragon series might be up his alley. It‘s a bit older now but I read and loved it in my early twenties and my brother read it as a teen. It‘s about a boy who becomes a “Traveler” through different dimensions. 2w

Chrissyreadit @MoonWitch94 yes! And Harry Potter. 2w

LibrarianRyan Rangers apprentice. 2w
LibrarianRyan Great series. 2w
LibrarianRyan This is not a horror novel. High fantasy. 2w
LibrarianRyan Zombies. Excellent author 2w
xicanti He should try THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater and ASSASSIN‘S APPRENTICE by Robin Hobb. Both kick off series that feature strong friendships and plenty of excitement. 2w
stephothebesto And the sequel, Crooked Kingdom. He might also like Sabriel (and the rest of The Old Kingdom trilogy), and a classic, The Golden Compass. Oh, and anything by Laini Taylor. 2w
twohectobooks @stephothebesto yes to Sabriel! 2w
Bookzombie I was going to suggest Rot & Ruin like @LibrarianRyan . 🙂 2w
Chrissyreadit Thank you so much @twohectobooks he is checking it out! 2w
Chrissyreadit Thank you @Cortg yes- we have those- he enjoyed them! 2w
Chrissyreadit @MoonWitch94 thanks! He is going to check that one out! 2w
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan thanks! The Rangers Apprentice is a long time favorite of his-so is the Alchemyst series. He is 1/2 through Rot and Ruin since it was on one of my shelves and you recommended it, we are adding the rest to his list to see what he wants next. You rock! 2w
Chrissyreadit @stephothebesto thank you so much for your recommendations!!!! we have the golden compass and listened to it many years ago but he did not love it. He is going to add Sabriel to his list. He tried Six of Crows and said he did not love it, but I‘m not sure why. He has read all the Laini Taylor books. 2w
Chrissyreadit @xicanti thank you for your suggestions! He‘s interested in those. my mom is going to look for those at used bookstores for him this week. She‘s in Portland and asked for the list of the books he is interested in. 2w
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie thank you! He was flying through Rot and Ruin last night. I‘m going to have my mom look for The Scorpio Races on her used book store adventure in Portland. 2w
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan - librarian extraordinaire for sure!!! He is absolutely into YA and adult books as well if you have thoughts- his favorite adult/YA series before The Discovery Of Witches was The Belgariad- he read that around 9 or 10 though. He also liked Piers Anthony, Xanth books and Incarnations of Immortality...if you have any other thoughts 🥰👏🙌😘 2w
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit let me look. I want to make sure I have titles right. How old is he again? 2w
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan he turned 15 in Feb. he‘s sweet and geeky- but for perspective is a full time student this year at our community college via dual enrollment- (cyber security major). Reading is his escape. I‘m going to email you. 2w
Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit The author of Rot & Ruin also writes adult books. Some of which tie into Rot & Ruin in a way. He might want to look him up online to see if he is interested in his other books. 2w
Bookzombie Also, I love the Lockwood & Co series so he might look at that one. 2w
Bookzombie And I would think he might like the Jackaby series. 2w
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie yes! I think your right about Jackaby! He said he did not like The Screaming Staircase- but I need to ask him why. 2w
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie thank you so much for jumping in with so many suggestions! 2w

tpixie ♥️♥️♥️ 2w
sudi Hope the diet work out for you, i was also going to try it but i need to see my doctor first and then plan everything. 2w
Chrissyreadit @sudi the biggest challenge is trying to stay vegan- I‘m compromising by adding eggs and cheese in, but I‘ve learned a few possible easy meals that will work- just be slightly monotonous. I‘m someone who does not care about food so I def do not feel deprived. My one comfort food when I don‘t feel well is mashed potatoes- and I miss that this week. Let me know if you do keto! 2w
Chrissyreadit @tpixie @sudi last night a made sliced eggplant, tossed in oil, roasted 15 min, added tomato sauce, and covered in both vegan and regular mozzarella- keto, vegetarian and all three of my teens raves about it! 2w
sudi @Chrissyreadit the vegan part definitely sounds hard. You're so brave for commiting to the entire diet. I have an appointment with my doctor two weeks later, till then i'm doing a low carb one but i've heard keto yields faster results 2w
sudi @Chrissyreadit that sounds so yum 😋, anything dish that has cheese is always my favorite 2w
Chrissyreadit @sudi it‘s easy for me because food is not a big deal to me. That‘s why my weight has been so frustrating. I could not care less if I went a day without food- but I know that‘s not the norm. 2w
sudi @Chrissyreadit you're so lucky, it's the exact opposite with me, i don't overeat but i do have a tendency to prefer comfort(includes junk food) over healthier options. I especially have a sweet tooth 🙈 2w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit sounds delicious!!! And amazing when all three kids agree! 2w

working on swap ideas and a plan for one day of self care.... tagging people I hope will share their ideal days- but encourage everyone! Tagged book is one I‘d like to read....link for outdoor adventure reads...

wanderinglynn Haunted hikes sounds like fun! My ideal self-care day—well that could go a lot of different directions. But I‘d most likely spend the rest of the day hiking (I find being in nature restorative) & reading, and then get a massage. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @wanderinglynn that is an ideal day! Being able to hike again is one of my goals. But I‘m scared to even think about it yet.... one mile at a time. 1mo
wanderinglynn You‘ll get there! 💜👍🏻 One step, one day at a time. 1mo
See All 20 Comments
Avanders I agree — haunted hike sounds fun! As for an ideal self-care day... 🤔 it totally depends on the season. But pretty universal would be: the *whole* day to myself (an impossibility these days) then early morning, something outside — hike, just watching sunrise, etc. Then latte and pastry at a local coffee shop w a book. A massage/hot oil scalp massage/scrub for sure. Followed by “spa lunch” and more reading. 🥰🥰 (edited) 1mo
monalyisha This is fun! My dream day would definitely start with brunch. My favorite brunch place serves little, freshly-made sugared donuts (which come to your table still warm). This means that I don't have to choose between sweet & savory (because obviously I'm ordering the eggs benedict). Bloody Mary(s) are a given. And then, I agree with @wanderinglynn: some combination of nature (either the woods or the beach), lazy reading, & a massage! 1mo
monalyisha P.S. @ChrissyReadIt Does your dream day involve Indian food? Is that what I spy on the bottom-right? 1mo
collegecatlady My dream day definitely involves reading on my porch during a mild day at like 75 degrees. Can‘t wait for one of those this fall! I would also love to have meals with all my favorite foods that are super bad for me: pizza, pasta, chocolate lol 1mo
sudi That books sounds so interesting, haunted hikes are something i'll read about but not go on one 😄. As for my ideal day, i guess it will involve stuff i like to do. Probably shopping , watching movies, dinner at my favorite restaurant or pampering myself with mani - pedi and reading. Or even something as simple as cup of coffee or tea from my fav place will make the day ideal for me 😄..... 1mo
sudi It doesn't take much to make my day ideal, i get excited for practically everything 😂 1mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders sounds like a perfect day! 1mo
Chrissyreadit @monalyisha I love your ideal day! The picture is an image of vegan soup that looked yummy. But Indian is totally one of my comfort foods. I try to eat it a couple times a month. 1mo
Chrissyreadit @sudi dinner out always sounds perfect! No cooking or cleaning, and bonus if alone to read at the table.... 1mo
Blaire My perfect day: waking up early enough to see the sunrise while drinking a cup of coffee; I would do yoga outside; eat breakfast; and then read a book; this would be followed by lunch and a hike with my family where they all enjoyed the hike and didn‘t complain; post-hike I would go to a spa and get a long massage and sit and relax with tea and a book. Dinner at a nice restaurant with my husband and then home to enjoy wine and tv. 1mo
Mitch @Avanders can I come! 👍🏼 1mo
Mitch Such a great Q @Chrissyreadit ! My perfect ‘end of summer‘ day - early rise, yummy breakfast in the garden that includes something sweet, with the sun on my face. Then a long slow walk - that takes in coast & heaths with a mountain view and includes regular stops at cute independent bakeries for more luscious baked goods. Home to left overs and a long hot bath then curl up in the armchair with a blanket, book and hubby! (edited) 1mo
4thhouseontheleft Some of my fave self-care activities: hiking, taking a bath with EO‘s or 🕯, diving deep into a subject and learning just to learn, restorative yoga, and of course reading! 1mo
Crazeedi My *self care* day would be-have coffee in bed made by sweet hubby, a warm shower, head outside for a small breakfast and coffee on porch, in my favorite chair. Spend the day reading, walking around the farm in 70 degree weather, and cozying up back in my chair with blanket, by a fire in the back yard. Pizza would be on the menu(earlier in day), and then hot dog cooked on fire , and a toasted marshmallow! 4w
Chrissyreadit @Blaire @Mitch @4thhouseontheleft @Crazeedi I love reading about everyone‘s perfect day!!! Now we all need to make them happen ❤️❤️❤️ 4w
Crazeedi @Chrissyreadit I agree!👍😍❣ 4w
Avanders @Mitch you are most welcome! 😁🌈 Your day also sounds perf, though, so I‘m not sure you‘re going to want to leave your happy place.... ☺️ 3w

1. Either, and supernatural!
2. Either? I‘ve actually not read Poirot or Marple- but I love Midsummer Murders and I wonder if they are similar to those characters/detectives?
3. Nancy Drew? Clearly, I‘m a newbie ready to jump into the genre!
4. I used to, but with my work I cannot wear it so it sits in a box.
5. Yellow and orange. Anything like a campfire and fall trees.

My very late check in, my gardens are over run but sunflowers are blooming, pumpkins are growing, roses are beautiful, two weeks of neglect has still left beauty and opportunity. Onward!

1. Coffee 🤣
2. Either- but I like witchy/spooky best
3. Books....I‘m very eclectic with items. Maybe I need ideas of things to collect? I think I‘d like pins.
4. I do not think I have a favorite. But I like creepy creative, like little dead riding hood, zombies, Irish banshees,

LauraJ Great answers! 1mo

kaysworld1 @jenniferw88 They all look fantastic reads but Tinseltown and Disembodied torso are actually on my paper to be read list. 👍 1mo
Chrissyreadit @jenniferw88 @kaysworld1 thanks! I did not realize how much I like true crime until Litsy- although In Cold Blood is one of my favorite books ever- but the buddy read of Stranger Beside Me made me realize I love the genre! 1mo

I enjoyed this book, but I suspect there are many nuances I am missing or not understanding because of lack of cultural knowledge. I highly recommend this and first book if you like dystopia, kick ass female, Native American folklore and culture, Supernatural. #bfcr3 and I‘m finally catching up with my #booked2019 Spring challenge (Native American Author) @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Cinfhen I‘ve heard this series is fantastic 👍🏻also tagging my lovely cohosts 💕💕 @BarbaraTheBibliophage & @4thhouseontheleft #Booked2019 1mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I haven‘t posted in so long I had to go double check the hosts!!! #backinthegame This Season May have been my slowest reading ever. 1mo
