I have not been successful in trying to get any time reading in lately but I'm making time today.

Couple chapters while little man munches some breakfast with his tablet. So far this morning I have learned that I race cars wrong, the tv has to be on cartoons even though he isn't watching it and I'm never allowed to be the blue truck. But he went potty by himself so I'm taking what I can get today 🤣

Took a step back from reading challenges last month and think I'm skipping out this month as well. We have been adjusting to new schedules and are finding that what little spare time we have these days are better spent destressing and enjoying things just for the sheer fun of it.

I had some holds come in today so tonight we ignore the housework and veg out.

Finally! Into February!

@shadowspeak17 You really have a knack for the strange and unusual don't you?

I finished last night and I'm still reeling trying to sort it out. Bearifully written cosmic horror that takes a deep dive into grief and a resulting haunting the MC can't hide from. Is it literal? Psychological? Spiritual? I have no idea but I wouldn't mind annotating a copy and trying to find out!

Great pick

And finally, the last book for January!

I may have an unhealthy facination with the FLDS and Warren Jeffs but this one is a must read! You don't really learn much different in the way this branch was run but the way Rebecca Musser handled herself over time and the bravery she showed in speaking out is admirable. I hope this book was freeing and she continues to heal ❤️

Eve of Darkness: A Marked Novel | Sylvia Day, S. J. Day

Absolutely not.

If this wasn't for book club I would have bailed on page 2

The Cain and Abel story was fine on it's own but the "You're going to change but it's God's will and I have to protect you and by the way, the change makes you unbelievably horny and the only cure is sex with everything" trope is just....ugh.

Thanks, I'll pass

All the YES for my boy #JDBarker ? I know this one sat forever but I'm so thrilled to have finally gotten to it.

The audiobook is definitely the way to go. It's capitvating and creepy. I loved the nod to Stephen King as well. I listened to it in a day.

Mehso-so

This colour fits so muc better in person 🤷‍♀️

I focused on #DaryndaJones for January's #BacklistReadathon and I never picked this series up before.

Inherited house, hot handyman, random cat, family secrets....it has the makings of Cozy Hallmark and that's just not for me. This would be great for those who want a tamer, more middle-aged Charley Davidson....with less chaos and less fun

I have no interest in continuing the series

TheSpineView You can't love everything. Great job for finishing 1y

So happy to have finally read this! I've always come back to this story over the years but never made it to the book. Definitely written in a way that can make you feel how unsettled this family was. Do I believe this really happened or was it all a hoax? Meh, I'm pretty set on my mind I think but it's still one hell of a story!

This was on my list for a billion years and did not disappoint. I may have a "slight" obsession with the FLDS and Warren Jeffs so a new insight is always welcome. I do feel this went more into the history of the religion and not as much into the crime commited so I wish I would have seen more of that though

@aperfectmjk I had to throw a little love-ish into your island reads this month but not too much!

I went with books I've read and enjoyed (I'm sure you can guess which ones 🤣) and one I hear good things about.

The Alina Jacobs I picked for two reasons:

It sounds like a cheesy Halloween Hallmark movie and that might be fun

And

The title sounds dirty and my inner 12 year old self can't stop giggling

Hope you enjoy!!

#TrappedonAnIsland

aperfectmjk @FantasyChick thanks girl. I can work some of these into the #Ispybingo which is definitely a bonus. I can handle some romance novels, but they're really just not for me. While most women are watching The Hallmark Channel I'm over here watching Investigation Discovery. 🤷‍♀️ 1y

I've been having a hard time getting into reading this month. Last month I didn't feel like it and this month I just can't get anything to stick.

Hopefully a reread with kick start my month!

Setting Goals | John Renesch

As the year closes and a new one opens its doors I've started to think of what I want in 2023.

For my #ReadingGoals I hope to focus more on quality instead of quantity. I am not aiming for a number but more for what speaks to me. I still plan to participate in challenges but I will be more low-key and not stress over it. This past year I haven't enjoyed reading as much as usual and I want to get that feeling back 😁

FantasyChick My #personalgoal is to learn to take a step back. Focus more on what I need rather than what needs to be done. By making time for myself every day instead of working myself to exhaution I hope to improve my mood and general mental state. This week has shown me that it's not the end of the world if things wait. I'm not planning to become a hoarder, but it IS ok to not put the supper away before everyone has finished 🤣 1y

If there is one thing I hate, it's cleaning my upstairs bathroom. Others don't bother me but this one just never seems to look clean due to age and old staining that I've never been able to remove. It's disheartening and puts me off as I like to see progress when I do things

Today, I realized that it doesn't matter. Just because no one else will notice doesn't mean that I won't and I hand scrubbed every inch. To me, it's a job well done

FantasyChick As a reward, I'm taking some self care. Hot bubble bath, hot coffee, candles, a face mask and a book in my freshly cleaned space. When it's hard to get motivated, it's the little things that really matter. Take care today Littens 🥰🥰 1y

Yesterday was another recharge day and I felt that I needed to really get into something. I read the entire book in one day!

Ok hear me out.

This is weird because it's not a recommendation because this is a good book because...I mean, come on 🤣 BUT this was the perfect book for that time where you don't want to read anything of substance and need an absolute dumpster fire to get you through to your next read. Pulled me right out of a slump.

Bonus points for not aging well considering the shit show going on now!

TheKidUpstairs 🤣🤣🤣 I love your description. It's true, every one in a while we all need a dumpster fire read! My most recent fave was 2y
FantasyChick @TheKidUpstairs OMG I was torn between this book and that one for this recommendation! Pretty sure I picked up The View based on your rec and I devoured it! It was definitely another perfect #DumpsterFireBook 🤣🤣 2y
TheKidUpstairs @FantasyChick I'm so using that hashtag next time I read a good one! Love it! 2y

Flipping through the months at random I absolutely loved this book! I think this take on Frankenstein was unique and a lot of fun. Plus I absolutely love the author and will pretty much read anything she puts out at this point.

Playing a little catch up this morning because this past week was BRUTAL!

This was the first book I read this year and I flew through it. It just captivated me and kept me wanting to continue. I hope the year finishes on the same sort of high note!

The picture cut off but it doesn't matter 🤣

The tree has been taken out of the box and set up but it hasn't been fluffed or decorated yet. I'll get to it....someday.

It will look much prettier soon....promise 😅
