I've been packing all week and I just want all of you to hurt with me a little. Grand total is around 35 boxes of books...easily the most painful part of this divorce was moving them down the stairs 😂😂😂😂 #butactuallyeverythingsucks #butgoodthingsarecoming !!!!

SamAnne Hang in there. Getting to the other side comes in waves. It feels better, it feels worse, it feels better, etc. It takes 2 years minimum to get to the other side. Give yourself time, focus on friendships, and read books. Life is so much better not living ambivalently—about a relationship, a job, whatever. Divorcing was one of the best decisions I‘ve made! 1mo
jb72 I know all about moving books. It is brutal. Sending you all the best and positive thoughts. 1mo
cathysaid Divorced after 17 years. At the time it was terrible and wonderful in equal parts. Now it‘s just wonderful. But the best part is unapologetically getting to know yourself again: your tastes, your concerns, your interests and your life. Wishing nothing but the best for you! 1mo

Hey all! I'm going to be changing my username in the next day or two so don't panic! I haven't been As active on here thanks to a particularly icky few months and it might be a while yet but I will get back to it. My new name will be changing to erinsuemreads across all platforms. I'll be going back to my maiden name eventually too.

@sprainedbrain Im moving in with @Meaw_catlady so she will be able to give you my new address for the witch swap.

Frost and starlight is bugging the hell out me. She keeps changing the POV. The story is good and I‘m enjoying the different characters but there just doesn‘t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the POV switching

Bookgoil I didn‘t like this one much compared to the others 3mo
GlassAsDiamonds I found I liked it if I kept repeating “epilogue novella, epilogue novella” over and over... Glad to have read jtbin the end but yeah, some of the POVs made me want to slap both author and character. (I do not think I‘ll make it through an entire Nesta series without figuring out a way to kill a fictional character) 3mo
ErinSueMreads Yeah I'm totally pretending like a nesta series isn't a thing 😂😂 @GlassAsDiamonds 3mo
Larkken @GlassAsDiamonds @ErinSueGreads I hate it when characters show development in a series but then the author undoes it all in order to make them be REALLY TRUELY screwed up for their own series arc 😒 3mo

I‘m also annoyed at Instagram authors ☝🏻☝🏻

I posted up a new blog today about etiquette in the book world.....

Sweetkokoro I seen all the stuff that went down with Dean Klein, and it was crazy, I have ever seen something like that in the book world. At the same time though I don‘t blame other authors for wanting to unfollow him or keep their distance, no one wants to be associated with someone like that, it just makes things uneasy and awkward. 4mo

One thing that has always made me a little sad on Litsy is how many people never interact with the community. I haven‘t been as good about posting but it‘s still my favorite community on the internet. I think in an effort to help retain book lovers and show them how cool this place is I‘m going to start doing a weekly shoutout for any new followers I get. I have been working on cleaning my friends list lately and unfollowing dead accounts. Look...

Ms_T I go through my following list every once in a while and do the same. 5mo
ErinSueMreads I‘ve been bad about it with school and so it‘s really high and it becomes hard to find people in my list so I‘m planning a big purge.

jb72 I just finished that Gaiman book and really enjoyed it. It‘s so hard to think about books and packing. One year I moved and the uhaul leaked all over my book boxes. I had to unpack them fast. But I‘d definitely keep out my friend‘s books that I need to read and return. 5mo

Alright we got @WhiskeyMistress all moved into her new house but now it is time for you to hypothetically move!! Tell us how many boxes you think your book collection is going to take! #packingpages

The last time I moved I had 64 and my collection has at least doubled....soooo I‘m going to go with a terrifying 130

I‘m going to Iceland and taking American gods because that is where it was inspired!

WOW SO AFTER THAT BRIEF INTERMISSION!

Moving is hard y‘all....but we got it mostly done. Let‘s get back on track with our challenge shall we? Today‘s prompt is “What was the last book you packed up in a swap?” I haven‘t done a swap in AGESSSSSS. But the last one i sent was Game Of Thrones!

Obviously this one doesn‘t have to be one on your shelves but you still can‘t repeat a book soooooo.....

CBee Send me your new address! 😁 #JB 6mo
ErinSueMreads It hasn‘t changed. Did something get returned??? @cbee 6mo

CBee @ErinSueGreads I got it now. Sorry bout that, I should pay better attention! 😂 6mo
Kerrioke I would answer this, but the swap open date hasn‘t passed yet 😂 5mo
LauraJ It‘s been so long that I don‘t remember. I kept getting shopping lists that had to be cross-referenced with lists of thousands of books on goodreads and/or librarything. Took all the fun out of swapping 😿 5mo
RainyDayReading Oh boy I don‘t know....It‘s been so long since I did a swap, way back in October I think....I know I sent someone a copy of The Dry by Jane Harper but I don‘t really remember when. I had a bad experience with a swap last year so since then I haven‘t really participated in any. 5mo
AsYouWish I think it was The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas, if I remember correctly. 5mo

I‘m sitting here working on final papers and by final papers I mean I‘m actually brain dead and just wrote a cathartic blog post. Go read it if you want to hear about how I ended up in a creative writing degree. Or if you want to see me stabbing people with lightsabers.

Sorry I forgot to post yesterday guys! I‘m sucked into finals and totally spaced.

Anyway! Time for the big reveal! @WhiskeyMistress bought her first house!!! All by herself! I‘m so proud.

Today‘s is easy...what book are you packing around with you currently?

madamereadsalot1 Do ebooks count!? Or library books? 😅 6mo
sprainedbrain Same question as @madamereadsalot1 ... despite owning hundreds of unread physical books and countless kindle books, I‘m currently reading a library audiobook, a library ebook, and a classic on Serial. 😂 (edited) 6mo
madamereadsalot1 @sprainedbrain same! Just finished The Song of Achilles on ebook and I'm going through The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy audiobook (read it before but it's been ages!), both from the library! 6mo
sprainedbrain @madamereadsalot1 Oh, I love Song of Achilles. One of my all-time favorite books. ❤️ 6mo
madamereadsalot1 @sprainedbrain it is DEFINITELY a new favorite. It was so beautiful, totally broke my heart! 6mo
AsYouWish All the books I am "packing" around are library books or books I borrowed from our school book room. So owned books at the moment. 6mo
Rissa1 I need to make more time for this. 6mo
Susanita Same. I‘m only packing around library books ATM so I can clear some space for my books I‘ll be taking on vacation. 6mo
Stacy_31 This seems like a fun one!! Currently "packing" around Everything I Never Told You, by Celeste Ng. Pretty good so far. Also, congrats to @WhiskeyMistress !! So exciting! 6mo
AsYouWish Currently I am only “packing” around library books, saving my personal books for this summer. 5mo

@madamereadsalot1 the end of that last one killed me dead girl...... on to the next I suppose 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

madamereadsalot1 Is this the one where it ends with her being Priya? Or the book where Barrons helped her stop being Priya? 6mo
Areader2 The last one I read was FeaFever , I am in agreement,that ending 🙄 😂I haven‘t read Dreamfever #4 6mo
ErinSueMreads Becoming priya. What a disaster! @madamereadsalot1 6mo
madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads it's been so long since I read them, but I do recall that one being a shit show. But you're on you're way to a comical dirty treat with this next one. 😂🤣 6mo

@madamereadsalot1 I‘m having sooooo many feelings right now......

madamereadsalot1 Tell me aaaallllllll of your feelings!! Ya know ya gal loves ta talk books. 😂 6mo
ErinSueMreads Ok. 1. If this Christian guy turns out to be a baddy too I‘m going to be so pissed! Like can‘t an annoying brat catch a break?????? I never thought I‘d be saying that. 2. V‘lane is totally working his faery magic on me. Like what is it in female nature to like people that are awful. Why do we do this to ourselves!! (edited) 6mo
ErinSueMreads 3. Barrons is totally freaking me out. And who the fluff was the dead chick he brought of the mirror!!!?? I can‘t! 4.im so so so into the machalo. 5. Can I get on the internet and see what this barrons bastard is yet? The suspense is pissing me off! 5. Can ANYONE get a little sexual satisfaction around here anywhere?!?!?? 6. And why the frig do I like V‘lane AGAIN??? @madamereadsalot1 6mo
madamereadsalot1 1. No spoilers to prove or disapprove your question here. 2. Dude, I wonder the same thing with every bastard ass character that I get the hots for. Including Vlane. I feel shame. 3. Barrons is one of my book boyfriends. Also, I can't remember the mirror scene. 4. 😂 5. Yeah, it's not as steamy as some of the other books in her repertoire, or in the genre. 6. Vlane is more than meets the eye. Maybe we just like complicated sexy fake men? Lol! 6mo

madamereadsalot1 I've read everything she's ever published. I am SUCH a whore for Moning's books!! 6mo
ErinSueMreads Oh god Mac drives me nuts!!!! @madamereadsalot1 6mo
madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads I HATE Mac. Like, fully and totally abhor her. That's why I think Moning is incredible because despite having created one of the world's most annoying characters, it's still an incredible series and the other characters are great! It's not even that Mac is badly written, she's just annoying. 6mo
ErinSueMreads Yes to all of that! Like why am I still reading when literally everyone annoys me?!? And why is barrons making me question my stance on asshole man characters?????? @madamereadsalot1 @Meaw_catlady get in on this and tell us how you are feeling other than being completely irritable about their being no good sexy parts in the first book 😂😂😂 6mo
Meaw_catlady @madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads the first thing I said when I started reading was. I hate this pink wearing sassy ass Mac. I still wanted her to let the seelies £^*¥! The crap out of her. ☕️ 6mo
ErinSueMreads Harsh! He makes a comeback in the second one @Meaw_catlady . The thing that is killing me about Mac is just everything. 😂. Do the others get better @madamereadsalot1 6mo
madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads @Meaw_catlady she gets a bit less annoying as they go on. But mainly I think it's because the cast of characters just keeps growing so she's not AS front and center. I love the entire series. 6mo

Okay! Here it is! The surprise game! The rules: repost this picture with hashtag #Fridayfun and see if your followers can guess which is bigger, your TBR or your physical Book collection. (Count them it is fun)

Later on tonight we can all share answers! So which do you think is bigger? My TBR (I chose goodreads) or my physical collection. Guesses on numbers?
