@CoverToCoverGirl @theresidentromantic @Daughter-of-words @LaurenReads look what was in my email! I‘m so excited!!! Pretty sure my weekend reading is all set. Yes, I know it‘s 4 am-my old lady bladder woke me up. Imma trying to go back to sleep for a couple more hours but I‘m too excited!

LaurenReads I just saw!!!! I don‘t know whether I should wait for all the books or just dive right in!! I feel so torn 😂 4d
CocoReads Me neither. I was gonna get it and start after work, but knowing it‘s a trilogy is making it hard. Additionally, I have all her others on my nook and I can‘t get it to come up there. Or any of her books. I can get it for kindle, which I prefer anyway, but it‘s supposed to be available everywhere and I like keeping my series together. #firstworldproblems 4d
LaurenReads Her Facebook group says it‘s slowly going live on all platforms, but only amazon so far 4d

CocoReads Ah, I‘ll check again after work. Although I think I wound up getting the last one on kindle anyway. My noon has been finicky and I‘m not going to replace it this time. Also, I should probably start getting the paperbacks, because those covers.... 4d
theresidentromantic This one looks amazing. I haven't been in the game since Lucky but this is soooo tempting! 3d
CocoReads I‘m actually leaning towards waiting til they‘re all released. Mostly because I want to immerse and I don‘t have the time right now to do it properly. 3d

Meh—I checked it out simply because the title amused me, but this story of a principal who can‘t find his teddy bear (and completely overreacts) fell flat for me. Younger kids preschool and kinder age, might enjoy it though. #bbrc #picturebooks

#BBRC #AtoZPictureBooks I really enjoyed this one-the subject, of course. When you have a book, you‘re never alone and I liked how it mentioned other types of reading as well—Braille, signing. Nothing earth shattering but the illustrations were lovely and I liked seeing all the places the kids were reading. @LibrarianRyan

Had my second cataract surgery yesterday. It went well, that eye is still blurry but the other eye is pretty much all healed. Since I don‘t go back to work until Friday and I can‘t bend or lift anything until then, I‘m just going to chill and work on my book group book. It‘s really good so far.

#BFCr3 final check in. I can‘t believe it‘s over. I keep losing and gaining the same 6 pounds. But that‘s ok. I‘ve built some strength and stamina, I‘ve got a habit going, and I miss it if I miss more than a day or two. This is yesterday‘s sweaty selfie after my workout. Something I NEVER would have posted before. Oh this week I got 6/5 workouts in and read 7 books for a 36/40 total.

#BFCr3 @wanderinglynn Thanks for leading us through 3 rounds of #BFC It could not have been easy to get us all organized and motivated but you did a great job. I know I was less active this time around but life happened. But even though I keep gaining and losing the same 6 pounds, the habit has been built and I‘m to the point where I miss it if I miss more than a day or two. Thanks for all your work! #TeamLetsDoThis

So freakin cute, you guys! Haley and Martin Nathaniel Monroe II (there‘s 2 of them-long story) get to know each other by texting but it becomes clear to Martin that Haley doesn‘t have a clue which one she‘s talking to. There‘s a lot of mishaps relating to the 2 Martin‘s and it‘s just a really fun take on the epistolary novel.

Week 5 wrap up—I can‘t believe it‘s almost over for #BFCr3 ! It was a hectic week but I managed to workout 3/5 times. I did read 7 books this week though bringing my total to 29/40. Next week will hopefully be better workout wise-I‘m on almost all early shifts and cardio today kicked my butt making me realize how easy it is to lose the habit and stamina I‘ve built. @wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 1mo
imabusybee I cant believe its week 5 either! Great week!! 👏🏻 1mo

julesG 👏👏👏 Yeah for cardio! I've slacked a bit there. What do you do for cardio? 1mo
CocoReads @julesG I subscribe to Beachbody so there‘s a lot of different programs. I‘m doing Morning Meltdown 100 right now and it was a lot of burpees, jacks, lunges, and stuff yesterday. Today will be an upper body workout with weights. This program has 10 different days before repeating again but each week gets a little harder. But overall I like Beachbody because I can do something different when I want. I get bored easily so this helps. 1mo
julesG Ah! Very interesting. And I've just noticed that I'm a slug. 😁 Fitness-wise. I can't do more than three burpees. 1mo
CocoReads I just started to be able to do them at all—and I‘m very slow at them. If I try to be quick I either hurt myself or throw up. So mine are more at sloth like speeds. 🤣🤣🤣 1mo
britt_brooke @CocoReads Those Beach Body workouts are intense! Great work this week! 💪🏻 1mo
CocoReads @britt_brooke they are but for the most part I like them, which is why I‘m still doing them. Plus, I paid for the year and so I won‘t quit. At least not until my year is up. Probably not even then-I‘ve actually found something that works fairly well for me. I don‘t have to leave the house and I can work out at a time that‘s conducive to my life that particular day. 1mo
britt_brooke @CocoReads That‘s why those programs are great; you can do them at home. Several years ago, my husband and I did P90X. It was hard, but so good! 1mo
CocoReads I‘ve only done 21 day fix and now I‘m on the new one Morning Meltdown 100. So good. I‘m thinking about 80 day obsession next but committing to an hour workout everyday is a bit daunting. 1mo

#BFCr3 check in since I had eye surgery earlier in the week I only worked out 2 days (last Sunday and today) but I read a total of 7 books this week bringing my overall total to 22/30. Went to a baseball game tonight. We have the cubs farm team here and one of our pharmacists arranged an outing for us. Cubs lost btw, but the people watching was spectacular and a good time was had by all. 😁 plus there were fireworks! @wanderinglynn

#bfcr3 (19/30) not much fitness going on here as I had my left eye cataract surgery yesterday. It went pretty well, things are still blurry and it feels like I‘ve got an eyelash in it but I think when it‘s fully healed and the other eye is done and healed that it‘s going to be a life changer. Anyway-this book is a reread but I still enjoyed it. @wanderinglynn

julesG Feel better soon! Are you listening to audiobooks in the meantime? 2mo
britt_brooke Hope you‘re feeling ok and heal quickly! 2mo

CocoReads @julesG no, I‘ve never been able to audio. I can do music but audio is too much like being read to and I‘ve never been able to stand that since I learned how to read. Mostly I‘m just reading with one eye closed. I did download an audio book from the library but I‘m not having much success. 2mo
CaroPi Recover soon. Try to listen non fiction. It works for me. I am unable to listen fiction but I truly enjoy non fiction in audio it really increase my reading 😁. It takes a couple to find the correct one. Eyes operation are the worst. I had retina detachment in both of my eyes 15 years ago... Is hell but you will recover! (edited) 2mo
wanderinglynn Yes, after my mom has both her eyes done, she felt like the world was so much brighter! Hang in there & focus on self-care. 💚 2mo
Crazeedi Heal quickly! My hubby just had his first one done, he hadn't been able to read for a year! I just started audiobooks, I thought I just couldn't do them, but I've found that I'm doing ok listening. Just have to be busy, if I'm not doing anything I end up falling asleep! Lol 2mo
CocoReads @crazeedi I have to be able to focus so if I stay busy I wind up not knowing what‘s going on in the book. If I do nothing I either fall asleep or get irritated with the pace. There‘s just no pleasing me when it comes to audio! 🤣 oddly enough, I can do podcasts. Mostly. 2mo
Crazeedi @CocoReads yes I always was able to listen to podcasts for some reason. I just kept trying, lol 2mo

#BFCr3 And that‘s a wrap for week 3. 4/5 workouts but lots of steps at work. 6 books for this week (because they‘re short).

My first Beverly Jenkins book but it totally won‘t be my last. I enjoyed her attention to the history, both of New Orleans as well as the time period of reconstruction. I admit, I don‘t know a whole lot about it from either side but this felt very real to me. I also really liked that it was Valinda who didn‘t know what Love was and didn‘t want to marry, and although Drake was in love from the start, he gave her time. 👇

Finally Z and Lilly get their HEA. Yeah, this is book 14 in a series, and the 4th in this particular story arc but I‘ve discovered LOKI is my favorite MC series.

Sweet novella featuring the only Free couple that was already married when the series started. No real revelations, just a series of Christmas vignettes of Blaine and Elliott‘s life together from the time they meet, through his deployments, through the loss of a friend and a miscarriage. I think this book is all the sweeter for it, as it shows marriage not always being a bed of roses but that even true love goes through rough times. #bfcr3 (2/30)

wanderinglynn My writing doesn't often go further than that either. 😂 But I'm trying to be braver & let other people read my work and entering some writing contests. 😬 2mo
CocoReads @wanderinglynn that definitely takes bravery! I did actually do that a few years ago. I started nano for the first time when I was down with bronchitis and when I finished it, I put it in a romance contest. It didn‘t win, I didn‘t expect it to, I knew it could be better but hey, I‘d always wanted to write a book so I figured why not? 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
CocoReads Anyway-it could be fun to do some sort of Litsy writers group. 2mo
jb72 @wanderinglynn @Cocoreads16 A writers forum would be nice. I‘ve never submitted anything in a contest. Currently I‘m working on a few poems and writing down my book ideas. 2mo
wanderinglynn @jb72 @CocoReads @LibrarianJen I'll check around and see what forums might work for a virtual writing group. :) 2mo
LibrarianJen @wanderinglynn that would be awesome! I don‘t really know of any outside of NaNo and I totally blew camp off this summer. 2mo
CocoReads @wanderinglynn that would be great! @LibrarianJen I blew it off too 2mo

Didn‘t sleep well last night. Trying to get motivated to do something. But I‘m thinking I may just try to squeeze in a little more sleep first

Elizabeth2 Love your mug! 😂 2mo
CocoReads @Elizabeth2 thanks—I want to say Amazon. But it could have been Target. (edited) 2mo

Thanks for a great #bfcr2 @wanderinglynn and many thanks to #TeamFlow @julesG @imabusybee @Reecaspieces @Moony @britt_brooke @LibrarianJen @laurenslibrary for motivation and encouragement.

#bfcr2 25/30 it was a reread. She has so many different series but they‘re all interconnected. Now we‘re pretty much in the second generation so I decided to go back to the beginning. I needed a refresher on how everyone is connected and which kids belong to which parents. @wanderinglynn

Diet Pepsi (darn diabetes), Cheerios, I fall them flip flops, um, neither but I am fond of iced tea (unsweetened), again neither-I‘m not much of a chip girl unless it‘s Pringles, if I‘m having the captain-it‘s gotta be peanut butter crunch, I love fries-pretty much any way I can get them! @LibrarianRyan I haven‘t made any progress on #BBRC but I‘m planning on a library trip tomorrow!

LibrarianRyan It will come. , 2mo

Finished this chunkster tonight. Some authors I was familiar with, most I wasn‘t. Some stories were dark, some were sweet. Most were teasers for upcoming books in already established series. I bought it solely for Autumn Jones Lakes story, which was complete in and of itself even though it‘s part of a larger series. But now I have some new authors to check out and that‘s always a good thing! #bfcr2 (24/30) @wanderinglynn

CocoReads Also forgot to mention, proceeds from the sale go to Bikers Against Bullies. So me, being me, even though I bought it for .99 on kindle, also ordered the paperback chunkster. I mean, that cover alone was worth it. 🔥🔥🔥 2mo
imabusybee I do love men and tatt's 😍😍😍 2mo

If you know me at all, you know my love for blue q products is deep and abiding. Somehow these socks and dish towel just spoke to my soul. And the bookmark was on point as well.
