Big Little Lies | Liane Moriarty

Pickpick

This book was actually pretty good. I wasn‘t expecting to like it as much as I did. It‘s my first Liane Moriarty. I liked the set up where you knew someone died but not who. The mystery was really good! Now to give the tv show a try!

Feels like I pulled a muscle in my leg yesterday so I decided just to walk the dog and not run. I‘ve already run 2x this week!

This is at the start of my walk. I have to wear a safety vest and a bright orange hat, because people are not nice. And if I get hit by a car, it‘s definitely their fault because I‘m clearly visible! And I only feel comfortable walking/running between 11am and 1pm on my street.

This is not a repost 😂😂 I am doing the same thing this afternoon that I was doing Friday night!

Hubby is tending the fire while I dig into this book! I am sucked in! And Buddy is as far away from the fire as he can get! (He‘s petrified of it!)

As I‘m reading, I‘m trying to figure out who plays which character in the TV show! I‘ll have to watch the show once I finish to see if I was right! 😂

This book is between a Pick and a So-So. I plan to continue reading this series which is why it is a Pick!

I felt like this book dragged a bit. It was almost 500 pages! And I know it‘s YA, but I hate when the women are so innocent that they blush at “scandalous” words.

Towards the end the book picked up and got really intense. And I didn‘t want to put it down! I of course love the “bad guy” Lord Carlston.

I just want to say thank you everyone for your support at the beginning of the week. I didn‘t realize how extremely difficult I am until then, but I appreciate everyone‘s suggestions on alternative ways to get exercise.

Finished Audiobook 2 for #bfc - This book was okay. I know it‘s a romance, but I found it very dramatic and didn‘t really enjoy it. I might be a little burnt out on romances. I‘ve been reading a lot of them lately.

Also completed my run today and a walk with my dog!

Will have my update post later today!

I need some motivation this week! With this weather, I don‘t want to go outside. My goal is to run at least a mile 3 times a week. I‘ve done 1 so far ?

With this rain and the cold! Who wants to go outside when it‘s 40°!! I should run today and Thursday because I have field hockey on Wednesday. But I‘m on the struggle bus!

#bookfitnesschallenge

4thhouseontheleft It's tough when weather interferes! 1w
nu-bibliophile I hate it when the weather doesn't allow me and Chance to go outside too 1w
wanderinglynn Weather, like work, always gets in the way. So, what can you do indoors that‘s the equivalent of running a mile? Maybe a HIIT workout with mountain climbers & burpees? Is running on a treadmill an option? Can you do stairs? Walk 1 mile around Costco, Target, or the mall? What other ideas do you have Team #BFC? 1w
See All 16 Comments
minkyb The weather has been ridiculous. I feel ya! 1w
Clwojick I tend to walk my apartment hallways, or go wander Walmart (or the library) when the weather is bad. Do you have a gym nearby that allows daily passes? I can buy one time “trial” passes at mine for $10. I normally try to make an afternoon of it though, if I have to pay (edited) 1w
Laughterhp @wanderinglynn and @Clwojick So I work from home and tend to never leave the house to go anywhere. I don‘t have a gym anywhere near me or a membership. I have about 10 stairs in my house. I wish I had a treadmill. What is a HIIT workout? I‘ll have to look that up! 1w
Clwojick Definitely check out YouTube! Pop sugar has some great workouts. You can choose by the time limit or the type of workout. Heads up that HIIT workouts are WAYYYYYY harder then they look. So start easy. HIIT is High intensity interval training. 1w
Laughterhp @Clwojick I just looked at the workouts! Yes! They definitely look exhausting and more work than just running! 😂 1w
TheSpineView I so like walking outside better. My vote is a walk in the mall, especially if there is some stairs involved. 1w
Kaye Well, I‘ll use a suggestion that no one else has. Wear a coat , take an umbrella and hoof it. If you don‘t have a gym, don‘t like going to stores to walk, don‘t have stairs , then walk outside. Dress warm. I guarantee you‘ll be peeling off some clothes before you get home. Our weather has been off and on too. Some days nice, others, like today are grey and cold , with small minutes of sun. You can do it. Get your coat and shoes. I‘ll race you. (edited) 1w
Laughterhp Haha thanks @Kaye ! I did actually try to go outside and it‘s not so much rain as mist.. so it was miserable! I ran up the street and turned right around and came home!! I found a workout online that is equivalent to running a mile!! 1w
Kaye Glad you found a solution. I was going to challenge you to a WALK. I can‘t challenge anyone to a race, unless there‘s someone doing this that‘s older and more RICKETY than I am. I‘ll challenge them because we‘ll be on more even ground. You‘re probably half my age so I won‘t try to race you. 1w
saguarosally I confess, that‘s my favorite workout weather. Not too cold, but the heat doesn‘t get in the way either. It‘s only raining 9 out of 10 days after all. 😁 1w
Caterina Good job finding an alternative! I hope the weather cooperates soon! 1w

A Duke to Remember | Kelly Bowen

This one was my least favorite of the series. It was insta love, which I know it‘s a romance but it‘s the only one in the series where they didn‘t have some sort of relationship first. The story was unique though.

My main complaint about Kelly Bowen‘s books is she doesn‘t have an Epilogue! I don‘t get to see a peak into their happily ever after.

I really liked this book. Yes it‘s long, but it doesn‘t feel long. The book never drags and it always kept me interested. I enjoyed all the women‘s journeys, experiences and friendship.

Because my goal is to run 3 times a week, Sunday is my rest day. Plus it‘s raining and my mom and grandparents are coming over, so I wouldn‘t be running anyway!

Yesterday, I completed a 1.23 mile run and then after I run I always go for a walk with my dog because he gets mad when I leave the house without him.

Yesterday was a good day! Oh and started tagged audiobook! Hope everyone is doing well!

Finished audiobook 1 for #bfc

This book was an interesting fantasy. There is a queen that rules Renthia and controls the spirit but she is basically corrupt. Girls with an affinity for spirits go to school to learn and try to become heirs for when the queen dies. There are champions who train the heirs with real world experience. My main complaint, there was a romance thrown in that did nothing but aggravate the story. I will continue series.

She‘s so good with the different accents and making each character their own. I speed up my audio speed too, which doesn‘t make them nearly as long. But I love that it is a series I can take breaks & pick-up at anytime. Doesn‘t feel so long with them that way. 2w

This was a good romance, not my favorite. I felt like the pacing was a little off. It got to a certain point and then it was over. It could have been because I read on my iPad and wasn‘t paying attention to the page count.

This book had a good feminine power plot point. Clara is a teacher and she invites her students to Dover for the summer where they can try a job they would want if they were a man.

Finished this last night before bed.

I didn‘t know much about this book going into it. It was on my TBR because I loved the 1 book I‘ve read by Simone St. James and wanted to read her backlist.

Ellie is a psychic who was discredited by the New Society but she helps people find lost things, because she really is a psychic. She‘s wrapped into the mystery of who killed her ex friend and psychic. This is a historical fiction mystery and romance.

This book was a fun cozy mystery. Set in the 1930s, Georgie is 34th in line for the crown. She has a relationship and spy‘s for Her Royal Highness. A dead body turns up in Georgie‘s house and she has to figure out why. What‘s obvious to the reader, isn‘t always obvious to Georgie, so that‘s a little annoying.

So happy I got a chance to support my local indie bookstore!

For any book purchase you got a free mystery book! I‘ve always wanted to get one of these!

Based on the description, what do you think the book is? I have no idea, haven‘t opened it yet, but hoping I like it!

Also included a picture of the bookstore and my new haul! The only Ruth Ware book I don‘t own!

Laughterhp @Palimpsest @Avanders I was actually very surprised when I opened it and may have squealed a little! 😂 Especially since I had almost bought it at the bookstore, but I don‘t buy hardbacks. 4w

1. It‘s a Harry Potter music box. When you spin the handle is plays Hedwig‘s Theme (which I walked down the aisle to at my wedding)
2. Nope! Afraid of needles!
3. I like socks, shirts and candles
4. Socks and bookmarks
5. I‘ve only participated in 3 swaps, but I probably liked the Sci-fi Fantasy Swap And Witch Please Swap!

Apparently this goober thinks the table is his new bed. He usually sits on my lap, but he jumped right up to the table! 🤦‍♀️ We clearly shouldn‘t have let him on the table while giving him a haircut last week.

Anyway, trying to soak up some sun by working outside. And I obviously had to bring my books outside with me. Trying to get rid of that winter paleness!

Pickpick

Okay! I‘ll finally stop posting about this book. I finally finished it! I tried to savor it as much as possible, but at a certain point I just had to finish it!

This book was so good! It was like a lost episode of Firefly. I could picture everyone while reading it. It takes place in the middle of the series, so everyone is in, Wash, the Shepherd, River, everyone!

So much nostalgia while reading this. I need the other books now!

I‘ve got my pie, my tea and my book to cheer me up on this dreary afternoon.

I‘m slowly getting through this book because I want to savor it. And never want it to end. 💚

Unlike the way I ate my pie. It‘s already eaten as I‘m posting this. 😂😂😂

My mom made a whole custard pie and I‘m really the only one in my family that eats it. My husband told me just because I took it home doesn‘t mean I have to eat it all. Of course I‘m going to eat it!

Cinfhen Why else would you take it home!!??? And even better, you don‘t need to share the pie with anyone 😉 1mo
Laughterhp @Cinfhen Right!!! Crazy man! I only get this pie twice a year so of course I‘m going to eat it all! 🤣 1mo
DivineDiana I love pie! 😉❤️👏🏻 1mo

rretzler Loved the show. Bought the book but haven‘t read it yet. I assume it takes place during the series and not after the movie? (I ask because I‘m fond of Wash) 1mo
Laughterhp @rretzler Haha yes it takes place during the series. Everyone is in it! Including Wash! 😊 1mo
rretzler Good to know. I can now approach it without trepidation! 1mo
LoveToReadLiveToRead Shiny! 😁 (edited) 1mo
Kaye If my husband said that, I‘d eat it all tonight. 1mo
Laughterhp @Kaye Haha I‘m going to eat as much as I can! He doesn‘t have a sweet tooth, so he doesn‘t get it! 1mo
