Am I reading a Christmas book in October? Yes. Is it the most delightful thing I have read in a while with multiple book references in the first chapter? Also yes. I must say one chapter in and I‘m in love.

My pick for the month for #botm

I decided to try #bookspin for October and see what I can get read. Lots of these are arcs from netgalley I am behind on or that are being released in October. The tagged is my most anticipated read as Dave Grohl is an amazing human being with nice long hair that I wish I had. I also haven‘t read a book since March so I am in need of some escape.

vivastory I heard a story about Grohl this morning that blew my mind. He almost joined Gwar, instead of Nirvana. Wild .. 8mo
Suet624 I can‘t wait for this book! He just put an announcement about the date of release on instagram. 8mo

I totally forgot about birthday perks on #botm. This will make a good last box. I‘ll be canceling my subscription because 1) I hardly read the books I get and my reading has gone down a lot since I started my masters classes. 2) major changes coming to my life (🤞🏼) by the end of the year

The_Heeler_Booklife I had arcs for both of these and they were super good. 12mo

I have been in the worst reading slump lately. I can‘t focus on anything, but the textbook for my class that starts in 2 and a half weeks oddly enough is doing it for me.

Nute I think that it is best to just read whatever works during a reading slump. I have been experiencing a reading slump for a whole year now. I‘ve had better success with reading poetry and non-fiction. I‘m just waiting for the day that I get through it. Hopefully, it will be soon for both you and I.🙂 10mo

I did a thing this weekend. I know we are still in a pandemic, but I am vaccinated and the shop I went to was super clean and the artist (and everyone who came and went while I was there) was very clean as well before/during/and after she worked on me. This is my first tattoo (and probably (definitely)not the last) and I am so unbelievably happy with it. Her apprentice took my idea and made it into something amazing that I am proud to have.

I finally have gotten to go to Maine for the first time since 2019 and I got to hug my parents (we are all vaccinated and are being safe). While here I‘ve gone through my grams jewelry. She passed in December and these are just a few of my favorites I am taking home with me to remember her by. The ring is her class ring from 1953.

While I wait for my next read to arrive (because why would I want to read anything on my shelves) I have decided to go through ACOSF a second time. Red tabs will be for smut and blue for times Azriel is mention (cause siphons). I may be obsessed with this book too. I might have returned a book on audible to get the audiobook.

This book was everything I could hope for. Though I haven‘t experienced what Nesta has gone through, just the way SJM writes about mental health, it just resonated in my soul and I felt such a connection to her. These books mean everything to me and are my happy place where I can escape the world and the thoughts that creep through my head and try to drag me down.

This book can have all the stars in the world and forever a place in my heart.

I cannot get enough of this book. Halfway through and already want to reread it. It‘s leaving me a bit 🥵🥵🥵 I‘m pretty sure I like Cassian and Nesta more than Rhys and Feyre. And I love Azriel even more than I did before and I need a book that is him, but not shipping him with Elaine. I currently ship him with someone else. Also because I find I get in my head too much like Nesta I‘ve started body combat. It‘s fun.

I think this is the only book that has been able to get me through rough days and anxiety attacks. I love getting lost in this world and these characters. (Tabbed is all the mentions of Azriel thus far, because I can‘t stop now).

Also random question. Has anyone gotten the vaccine yet and did it leave a bump?

BookishMarginalia My parents-in-law did. They reported no side effects from their first shot. 1y
Chrissyreadit @ElizaMarie do you have a bump from vaccine? 1y
FlowerFairy I had my first dose at the beginning of January. Was told my arm was going to be a bit sore. Felt nothing that day. The next morning, it was crazy mad sore! Everyone at work was the same. Took five days before the pain subsided. Next dose due February 05. 1y
ElizaMarie I got my second one on Wednesday. No bump but my arm feels really “tight“, also I had fever, chills, aches, pains all that! 1y

So I am halfway through my reread of ACOMAF and I started listening to it today at work because honestly this is the one thing that makes me happy right now (this is day four without heat in Massachusetts). Would you count it as one book or two if you are reading/listening to at different t parts?

BookishMarginalia One. The book is the same, even if the medium is different. 1y

This has been a ridiculous and unexpected day off. What started as maintaining the dogs while someone came to check our heat turned into a gas leak. Everyone is ok and the gas is shut off, but good golly could 2021 be a little nicer.

Is it normal to be going through a slump so soon in the year? I‘ve barely read anything in two and a half months. I have so many good arcs to read and yet I don‘t want to focus on anything.

Butterfinger I get it. Sometimes, I don't want to pick up a book and just want to do something else. Don't be hard on yourself. Books will always be around us. 1y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick A friend of mine pointed out that the Lunar New Year doesn't start until February 12, hence the bad 2020 energy still going around.😆 Hopefully it gets better! 1y
Texreader I feel it too. I‘ve struggled going into 2021. The best I‘ve done is with audiobooks. I like @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick ‘s theory!! 1y
