I finally finished this tonight. I started about a year ago after Anthony Bourdain died. I finished it on audiobook because it was comforting being read to. My Alex was a fan of Bourdain as well. I miss Alex so much. He was so smart and funny. Early mornings like this when I‘d get off work, sometimes Alex would wait up for me and we‘d talk or listen to music. Maybe he‘s had the opportunity to meet Bourdain in the hereafter. I hope so. 💔

I‘m sitting in the airport not reading the tagged book or any other. I‘m on my way to funeral services for this man that I love. I feel so lost and confused and angry. He lived here in Maryland with me, but his final resting place will be Wisconsin, his home. Please say a prayer for me. I love you, Alex. 💕

Sitting at the laundromat, reading this great 2nd novel. Angie Thomas is phenomenal!

Reggie Ughhh, was the laundromat crazy on a Saturday? We used to have to fight for dryers. And there‘s always be that one person who would stick one T-shirt in 5 dryers to save them. Never have I ever wanted a bag of Cheetos so bad. Ps. I loved that book!!! 6mo
Mariposa_Bookworm @Reggie there was one guy who kept drying his lunch box over and over again. The one I go to has these HUGE washers so I could do a lot of clothes in a short time. It‘s actually relaxing. 6mo

Sooooo I‘ve been trying to like this and read it before watching the Netflix series. I‘m not really feeling it. The back and forth between the tapes and the listener (see I forgot his name, totally not invested) is off-putting and confusing. I suppose I‘ll watch The Closer instead.

britt_brooke It was a #pan for me. I didn‘t watch the show, but I‘ve heard it‘s better than the book. 1y
CaliforniaCay The show is definitely better. Devastating and uncomfortable to watch but better than the book for sure. 1y
MelissaSue81 One of the rare instances where the show is better! For sure. 1y

Ok, so at the suggestion of my co-workers, I begin to read/watch Game of Thrones/ A Song of Ice and Fire. Then I got to Season 3 and I am officially DONE. George RR Martin currently makes me sick. Done. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 I still haven‘t finished the tagged book. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I struggled with how many POV characters were in the first book so only made it a tiny bit in before I read that the number increased each book - so I gave up. Haven‘t watched the show. What was your breaking point? 1y
DGRachel I watched the first episode and no more, but I‘ve read the first four books. I‘m curious as to what your breaking point with the TV show was, too. It‘s ok to hide it in a spoiler comment - just spill! 😂 1y

PenguinInFlight I‘ve watched all but the most recent season, and it‘s NOT easy to watch. It‘s not something I can binge on, I can only handle one or two at a time. 1y
PenguinInFlight I‘ve tried to read the series multiple times, but with no luck because I can‘t keep the characters straight to save my life. 1y
Scurvygirl 😂 yeah, never get attached to any character ever. That‘s a rough scene in the book and show. 1y
SarahSaysRead I think I stopped reading after the 3rd of 4th book. It got too long and ridiculous and boring and I hated half the characters. Never bothered with the show. This series is so overrated. 1y
IamIamIam I gave up reading in book 4 when there were no characters I recognized and I was completely confused. We watch the series and that's good enough for me!!! 1y

BekahB HA!! Yep, book buying truths are hard to face. At the end of last year I entered all of my unread (physical) books into a spreadsheet and they totaled to 696. I triple-checked because I just couldn‘t believe it - but the number was correct. I‘m sure the amount of money I spend each year on books is super high too. 😬 2y
mklong I use the Mint app and it tallies it up for me. It‘s embarrassing! It even sends me alerts that say things like “you‘ve exceeded your budget for books.” Like I don‘t know that! 2y
Mariposa_Bookworm @BekahB I keep telling myself since a lot of it is YA lit that I‘ll donate it to my classroom. Lies. I just love books. 2y
Mariposa_Bookworm @mklong I need to try that. My bank app only separates the transactions. It doesn‘t send me an alert. 2y

Ok soooooo maybe it‘s getting to be a slight problem...please ignore the Bath and Body Works obsession in the background. Apparently I like to smell good while reading books. Tee hee! 🤣

Walking Dead Book 10 | Robert Kirkman
post image

As I've said before, I've never watched this show. The graphic novels are so good that I want to watch the show (during the daylight hours with all the lights on). I've read books 8,9, and 10 today and graded zero essays. 😁

CindyMyLifeIsLit Walking Dead or grading essays—hmmm, which to choose? It‘s a tough one! However, I do believe you made the right choice! 😜 2y
Ingerella I'm the opposite. I've watched the show but never read a graphic novel. I just started the first compendium. It's really fun to read! 2y

I promised my son a day out together which means a day spent in bookstores. Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC is such a beautiful store! I love that even at the age of 22, he still likes hanging out with Mom. ❤️

MrBook Sweet! 2y
Liatrek My son is 16 and still likes to hang out😊 I hope that never changes. (edited) 2y
Mariposa_Bookworm @Liatrek I hope so too! It's nice when they grow up to just be awesome people. 2y
TNbookworm I love this! My 20 year old daughter took me to Parnassus Books in Nashville last month for my birthday because she knew how much I wanted to visit the store. Grateful for awesome kids💕 2y
Mariposa_Bookworm @TNbookworm That's fantastic! I'm hoping we make it to Knoxville to Mckay's one day soon. 2y

We saw the movie last night! I'm a big 'fraidy cat when it comes to horror, but my favorite author next to JK is Stephen King. I bought my son a hardcover edition and stole his paperback version. It's just like the one I read soooooooo many years ago. ❤️👍🏾

Skeebies05 Did you like the movie? 2y
Mariposa_Bookworm @Skeebies05 I really liked it!!!! It has a throwback 80s vibe and Pennywise is CREEPY! I don't like clowns. I'm looking forward to part 2. 2y

So the week before school starts back for teachers, I quit my part-time job. I didn't want to start another school year working two jobs. As a going away present, my manager gave me a $50 gift card to Barnes & Noble. It's great when people love you AND your book obsessions❣️

I'm not sure if Book Six of the hardcovers is in the Litsy database, but that's the one I'm currently reading. It's sooo good. I think Rick is my favorite....Did I mention I've never watched the show?

JoRead I've never read the comics but I really want to 2y
Mariposa_Bookworm @JoRead It's extremely intense. I have had to put it down and walk away a few times because I'm nervous about what's about to happen. Sooooo good! 2y
JoRead @Mariposa_Bookworm I've hear great things about it! 2y
monkeygirlsmama I read the first one, and thought it was alright. I watch the show, haven't missed an episode, and I struggled with the differences between the two. Also, the comic Rick looks nothing like the tv Rick and I couldn't get past that. Haha 2y
eanderson I love the Walking Dead! I've read most of them and I love the show. I really like the differences between the 2. It's such good writing! Hope you enjoy! 2y

Smoke | Ellen Hopkins
post image
Mehso-so

I must confess I was put off by the written in verse aspect before I read the first book in this series. The raw emotions of Pattyn's life work well in poetic form. There's much more teen angst and emotion in this. While it is understandable, it does sometimes lean toward melodrama. All in all, it's decent work and I see why my students like Hopkins's work. Crank is also on my TBR.

That._.one._.nerd Crank was amazing! Smoke us on my TBR book, once my library gets it :) 2y
kissxxmyxxconverse Ellen Hopkins was one of my favorites as a teenager! I fell off the bandwagon, but I loved Impulse and Tricks the best ❤️ 2y
