Hey @MaleficentBookDragon this #cozyswap package is amazing! Thank you so so much for everything! I‘m super excited for the Death by series because Death by Pumpkin Spice is my favorite cozy. They others look great too! And the blanket is super soft and cuddly 😍 Plus pumpkin spice everything! @Avanders
PS Sorry this didn‘t post earlier. I had it typed up but then the bell rang 🤦🏻♀️ #teacherlife
Wow! Thank you so much @bookish_wookish for the great #cozyswap package! I love it 😻 Both books look amazing, and the bag and book sleeve are both so so so cute and 100% my style. Plus PUMPKIN SPICE TEA. Ahhh pumpkin spice I love you. Thank you thank you! Please excuse my random quilt block kit in the corner 😂.
Last night my mom accidentally let my poor baby girl escape. I am so so sad about it. I know a lot of Littens love their kitties and I just wanted to share my heart with people who will understand. Send good wishes for Cortana to come home. 💔
Me: *wakes up* *thinks it‘s first day of fall* *rips open #cozyswap package*
Husband: I thought you had to wait until Monday.
Me: *realizes it‘s only the 20th* *shoves everything back in without looking*
At least I have this fun one I found to tide me over til Monday.
Hey @MaleficentBookDragon , this was waiting for me today! What a great surprise on a dreary Monday. Thank you soooooo much, I can‘t wait until the 23rd!
Sent mine out today and they should arrive by Friday. :) YAY!
This came yesterday! I was about to tear into it because yay! but then I saw the #CozySwap and realized I had to wait. But still yay! Thanks @bookish_wookish (I‘m pretty sure that was the name in it but it kinda rubbed off. Can‘t wait. Mine are going out Monday at lunch!!!
Oh my gosh @tdrosebud I am so sorry I forgot to post this yesterday! Thank you so much for the lovely #FallAtHogwartsSwap Box! I absolutely love everything in here. I‘m especially excited about the chocolate wand because a friend gave me one last year and it was delicious. Also the pins are going to look SO CUTE on my student government (advisor) sweater. The books are great too! Thank you so much and so sorry that I‘m terrible at Elfster.
Hey @Endowarrior21 and @tdrosebud this was waiting for me when I got home today! 😍 I‘m so excited, it‘s been a WEEK and this will get me through. Also, super duper sorry to my match that I didn‘t answer your Elster message but I didn‘t even get a notification until today. 🤦🏻♀️ Anyways! Hooray! #FAHS #FallAtHogwartsSwap
I had a very bad day, so I convinced my husband to take my to get french fries and some books. Honestly just reading some of the crazy cozy mystery titles cheered me up (like the tagged book that has an even better plot summary). I love cozies so much.
Me around 10:30: Man it‘s late, better shower and go to bed.
Me at 11: Perfect timing to crawl into bed.
Me, the second I shut my eyes: *thinking about all the twists and turns in Last Time I Lied and imagining how creepy it all would be and all the crazy things that could have gone wrong*
So now that I‘ve throughly spooked myself, I‘ll be up for a while.
Finally finished teaching summer school and this happens. I keep convincing myself I‘m fine and over doing it, so I‘m going to lie low and finish the tagged book today. Husbands orders. 😂
Ahhh @Rissa1 thank you so much! Not going to lie, I squealed a little bit at both the llama book bag 🦙 🦙 and the stationary set AND I almost bought this book when I was in Oregon 😂 I‘m SO exited. You are the bomb.com. Also I totally didn‘t think about my Elfster being full of Harry Potter stuff because I‘ve mostly done Harry Potter themed swaps on there, so thanks for working around my crazy self. Seriously, you‘re amazing! #ChristmasInJulySwap
So we finished listening to this book while driving through miles of dark forest in Oregon. It was the perfect spooky setting for the last few hours of the story. Even my husband (who is pretty anti-book lately) was impressed with the final FINAL plot twist-a very twisty twist. Overall I enjoyed the story, but sometimes found Emma a little cringe worthy. I‘d give it 4/5 🔪 🔪 🔪🔪
Waiting for it to be time to open my #ChristmasInJulySwap! Yay! If you did not receive your package please contact me ASAP(unless you already did). And don‘t forget to tag me in your opening post! @MeesesPieces @MaleficentBookDragon @Rissa1 @LapReader @thegreensofa
Thank you all for participating! I‘m sorry that I‘ve been MIA, I‘ve been going through some crap and it totally threw me off. I hope you‘ll forgive me and swap with me in the future!
While on our way to see the ocean we spent a night in Portland and went to Powell‘s City of Book which was basically a freaking DREAM. I spent a solid 2.5 hours wandering around and if I had been alone I could have spent 2 more, but the husband got bored.
Hey Littens, sorry I have been MIA for the beginning of our #christmasinjulyswap buuuut my husband took me to see the ocean for the first time so I‘ve been out since Tuesday. I promise to be back and better tomorrow! I didn‘t have service 2/3 of our trip but let me tell you it was freaking magical. 🥰😍
Hello swappers! Your matches have been sent. I accidentally had some of you set out of country but I fixed it, so some of you may have gotten two emails. Anyways, I‘m heading on vacation where I will definitely be shopping for my match. Happy swapping!

Wow @Amandajoy !! Thank you so so much! I love it ALL. The books look amazing, the llama book mark and stickees are SO cute and the mug, notebook, and pins are too fun! Plus those pens are BEAUTIFUL. The card did come, my husband said it was brought over a few days ago by my neighbor which is why I didnt find it until you mentioned it. It‘s a really cute card too! I can‘t wait to dive in and experience *all the feels* myself. Thank you again!
So, true story. I accidentally opened my package yesterday thinking it was the 21st. Then when I grabbed my phone to take a pic of the cute wrapping, I saw the date. 🤦🏻♀️ So I took this and put it all back. But now my sister is sleeping in the living room and I have to wait for her to get up 😖 I just wanted to let @Amandajoy know I didn‘t forget and that I LOVE all the llama stickers. I can‘t wait to see what‘s inside. #summersantagoespostal
Oh you guys, I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn‘t. It took me almost three months to finish. 😂 I only finished it because I wanted to know if Peter and Lara Jean stayed together. BUT I do love Lara Jean‘s personality and so I would read another book about her.
I have this little stack of books related to comic con that I really want to dive into. Unfortunately I have 6 half started books that I either have to finish or bail on because I‘ve been dragging my feet like crazy on them. I also desperately need to clean and reorganize my library. 😫 Wish me luck!
Do you think my match will know what swap this is for? And the opening date? 😂😂😂 Finally done with school and therefore after school events and was able to put this package together and get it out. I‘ve been getting bits and bobs forever so I‘m glad to have it all tied together. @BookishMarginalia #summersantagoespostal
1. The Wicked King had me like 😍😖🤔😳🤯🤬😱
2. Always and Forever, Laura Jean has me like 🤢😴🥴😡
3. Excited for the next Simon Snow book, Wayward Son. I tagged the first book.
4. My goal is to rad at least 15 hours a month. I‘m doing well if you count audio books and terrible if you don‘t. 😂
5. I‘m going to tag @Kaciecalderon to give her something to do.
So I might have pre-ordered this book on a total whim because I got an email telling me it would come with a beach bag. 🙈 Even though I follow Sarah Dessen on Twitter and enjoy her personality, I‘ve never read one of her books. Here‘s hoping it‘s amazing. And that my beach bag comes soon!
Littens! Hook me up this beautiful #recommensday . Last summer, everyone was raving over The Death of Mrs. Westaway so I downloaded it on audible for my week long gig chaperoning leadership conference and LOVED it. This year I‘m going back to USULC (with new people) and I DESPERATELY need something just as intriguing to keep me occupied. I loved the style of Westaway (like how it was no gore just twisty). So... What do you have for me?
Accidentally bought this entire series on amazon kindle a few months ago. I hate reading on the kindle app so I didn‘t start it forever. Yesterday I was so bored I dived in and now I can‘t stop! It‘s all I think about.
