#ThoughtfulThursday
October was all right! Better than last year‘s October- for sure.
I‘m looking forward to Thanksgiving with my hubby and my sister & her family. And a week off of school- bless our new head-of-school who totally gets that humans need real breaks.

I‘m grateful for family, friends, and (not gonna lie) good food.

Librarianaut Thanks for the tag, @MoonWitch94 !! 4w

Warm Bodies: A Novel | Isaac Marion

I thought this book would just be a fun romp- and it was a fun romp- but it also dug deeper than I expected. I will watch the movie but suspect it may not portray the true heart of the story the way print did (I hope I am wrong).

This book was one of the first to help me see beyond myself (I was a very young adult when I read it); it helped me see that even though things may happen *to* me they do not define me and they do not dictate my future behavior. This book changed the way I see the world.

Snow day B&B: breakfast & book. I‘m reading Hellbent (third Orphan X book). If you like over-the-top super secret agent stuff, this is for you. Hurwitz is funny, too. I particularly like his treatment of women- they are generally badasses (even the ones being rescued from desperate circumstances). He fully points out through the action that women have their own types of power, as well as being able to be physically & intellectually strong.

Grrlbrarian That Stormtrooper mug tho 🙌😂 3y

I‘m famous for wrangling books and have been called a toddler-whisperer by adults dazed at my powers of story time.
My mum calls me “Laura” but that‘s only because she had to pick something when I was born, not knowing who I would become.
