Rolling in the Deep | Mira Grant

Pickpick

Finished Rolling in the Deep and started Into the Drowning Deep in audio for my drives to and from PA.
I've read both books already, but am really enjoying them now in audio. However, the narrator for each book pronounced the ship's name "Atargatis" differently. It's a bit annoying.

Another Chocolate Walk in the books! Here are my favorite purchases. Tea, a new mug, Wilbur Buds, and some cozies from Aaron's Books in Lititz.

And yes I did just buy a book that was just gifted to me. Sigh. I need a better way to keep track. Life is hard. 😄

LauraJ That mug!!! 1w

Thank you @Avanders for the awesome #LMPBC package! So much goodness. Of course, my favorite is the shark cozie, but the pencils are a close second. I've wanted the tagged book for a while now. Thank you!
I am very much a slacker and I have not shipped out yours yet @TK421 I will send it out priority for you.
@Bklover @BethM

TK421 No worries. You can slow boat that box if you want to. 😊 2mo
Avanders 👏🏽👏🏽♥️😘yay! That shark cozy was impossible to pass up 😁😁 2mo
Bklover @BethM Yours went out priority yesterday. 😊 2mo
BethM Lovely! @Bklover no worries! We‘re driving home from vacation today anyway! 2mo

I read some good books this month as well as the short story that is the basis for the upcoming movie Antlers by Guillermo del Toro. I also bailed on 3 that were not doing it for me.
The tagged book was my favorite this month.⭐⭐⭐1/2

vivastory What is the short story? 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon @vivastory The Quiet Boy by Nick Antosca. It is not in the @Litsy database. 2mo
vivastory Thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing the movie! 2mo

I wish I lived/worked there. Sigh.

Karisa Would this series be suitable for high schoolers? My daughter loves cats and is always looking for a new series to read. 😊 2mo
Kaila-ann Loved Savannah. Went 2 years ago and want to go back. 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Karisa Yes. It's a pretty light cozy mystery. However the 🐕 is in it more than the 🐱. 2mo

My neighbors are talking (maybe drunk crying) really loudly underneath my window and I keep getting dive bombed by a moth that got into the house that Hades can't seem to catch him. Ugh.
Insomnia, hello my old friend.
I guess I'll start a cozy.

Quirkybookworm Hades looks like my Luna 2mo
Leftcoastzen What a beautiful kitty! Drunk crying on a Friday? May be a long weekend.😢 2mo
Susanita Ugh. My upstairs neighbor used to go out on her balcony to argue on the phone with her ex. I feel your pain. 2mo
Avanders 🤭 awful. Hope tonight is treating you better ♥️ 2mo

#BFCr3 weekly check in (a day late again)
I really struggled this week and was feeling very discouraged.
I have had a tooth ache and had an allergic reaction to something that had me down and out for a couple days.
4/7 workouts - I worked out only yesterday and today (2 each day) and walked in A. C. on Monday.
Vitamins most days, but with very bad nutrition
Not much reading; mostly in a Benadryl stupor.

What's good background for cleaning and reading? The Meg of course.

Sharpeipup I would guess Jason Stratham would be too distracting. 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Sharpeipup yes, my plan fell apart right there, and I sat down and watched it again. 2mo
