My next read.
I was so busy with college final week of exams and projects that I had to put a few things aside. To add the cherry on top of the sundae I have a bronchitis and sinus infection. My last exam is tomorrow. I can't wait for this semester to be over.

5/5 ⭐
This book is one of my favorite read of 2019.
I absolutely love this story. I like the romance, it's slow and it feels more real.
I have laugh a few times. From the beginning to the end this book has enchanted me into it's world.
It's the kind of story where the prince doesn't save the princess but it's the princess job to try to save the prince.

Maddeline I miss this book😭I loved it❤️ 4d

I just wanted to let all of you know that A Curse So Dark and Lonely is only 1.99$ on kindle.

I'm half way through this book and I am loving it so far.

Harper is taken from a man and brought to the other world where Rhen is repeating the season of his 18 birthday over and over again. It's a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I think the plot is interesting, and it's a unique take of Beauty and the Beast.

Jeralyn I just finished this one and loved it! I hope u do too:) 6d

I'm still alive!

I had so little time to myself that when I had some time on hand I enjoyed the weather.

I didn't do much exercices, I went outside to play with my dogs, I take the stairs at college instead of the elevator and I drink about 2L of water everyday. I just didn't have the motivation to write it down. I blame it on the multiple exams/projects I had to do before the end the semester. 😂

I have the hardest time to read this book. I don't like it so far. I know it's an unpopular opinion but 🤷‍♀️

Does it get better?
Did anyone else struggle at the beginning of this book?

JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘re not alone. I stalled on p280 months and months ago....it bored me to tears, so slow. And I had already purchased Muse of Nightmares bc the editions are gorgeous. I‘m going to try again, one day. 2w
MartinaLove @JanuarieTimewalker13 I think I'm going to return it to the library. I'm a little disappointed because everyone seem to love this serie but the story isn't for me. 2w
JanuarieTimewalker13 I loved the writing style and I liked Lazlo Strange, but just way too slow. I actually tried to pick it back up after I read your initial post, read a couple of pages, and gave up. 2w

These children books were all great reads. I remember reading them when I was a child.
Animal babies teaches about how you call them and give you fun facts.
The Berenstain Bears and Frankling teaches great life lessons for kids, in my opinion.
The last unicorn was a movie I loved watching as a kid. When I saw the graphic novel on Libby I had to borrow it.
So I decided to share these books, in case you want to read it with your kids. 🙂

This book was so funny. I laughed out loud a few times while reading it. It was a very unique and special take on Jane Eyre.

I have never read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brönté but I will soon read it for sure after reading My Plain Jane.

I highly recommend this book.

Week two:
I walked a total of 270 minutes and 122 floors.
I'm disappointed with myself. My injury is kicking me really good lately. I don't count the exercises I do that are related to my injury because I don't feel like they fit in this challenge.

I felt so guilty not doing anything that week that I walked for 3 hours outside with my dogs this morning.

wanderinglynn You're doing great! 🙌 Don't be so hard on yourself. 💜 And I would count the exercises you do for your injury. Why wouldn't you count them? That's still fitness - it's fitness to heal and strengthen what's been hurt. And it's also fitness to know when to rest and allow ourselves time to heal. 3w

Next on my TBR list, My Plane Jane.
I am still trying to finish The Night Circus. I love it, that's not the problem. I just have a lot of pain in my neck which gives me headaches (nerves) and I choose this book for the #BookFitnessChallenge so I'm waiting for the pain to pass. It's been raining a lot here and it seems like I feel more pain on these days. I will update tonight what I did so far but I haven't done much exercises.

This was one interesting murder and mystery book.
I went into it without knowing anything about the story.
The story did grab my intention from page one. After all, 5 kids in detention, 4 comes out alive but what really happened that day? Almost everyone in this book is a suspect and it's not until the last 100 pages that your starting to maybe figure out what really happend.

I love this series!
You get attached to Don so easily. He's a wonderful character and I love following his journey.
The author understand Don's personality very well and it is very well written.
It's very light read but Don gets into many troubles, which makes it more interesting. It's not only about romance and it's a funny read also. 🙂

An intense sci-fiction mystery/thriller.

The main character, Jason, is a scientist (teacher) living a comfortable life with his family. Until one night, his life is turn upside down. When he wakes up, he doesn't know where he is, why he's there and his family isn't his family anymore.

The only thing I didn't like was the writing but the storyline makes it up to it.
