Taking another break from Jade City - the story is amazing but I feel like I‘m running a marathon on a treadmill when I read it; always moving but never going forward. (Seriously, I‘m on chapter 39 & just barely halfway) This one is an interesting look at the things in our daily lives that cause us anxiety, all in the context of Maslow‘s Hierarchy of Needs.

Hey #LitsyFam - I‘m back after a long hiatus. The past 8 months have been awful. 0/10, do not recommend. We‘ll talk more on that later, though. For now, I‘m determined to finally finish this damn book that I‘ve been reading for approximately one million years now.

CBee Welcome back ♥️ I‘m sorry things have been so rough 🙁🙁 6mo
wanderinglynn Welcome back! 👋🏻 I hope things are going better now. 💜 6mo

Speak: The Graphic Novel | Laurie Halse Anderson

I didn‘t think it was possible, but this one hits even harder as an adult. I read the original in high school, & when I saw that it had been adapted to a graphic novel I knew I had to reread it. Definitely heavy, & a serious TW/CW as it‘s about surviving sexual assault, but an amazing and inspiring story nonetheless.

I found two of the books in this Dark Tales series at Ollie‘s and decided that, for $3 a piece, I would get them & read them. This one is actually a really good retelling of the traditional Beauty & the Beast story, and I‘m excited to read the other one (which is a retelling of the snow queen I think?). Definitely a nice, quick read in between grad school readings.

Audiobooks have become my go-to listens for driving and working out, although I‘m starting to think I need to avoid working out with my boyfriend (he got me big mad at the gym today - an hour workout and I spent half the time telling him to leave me alone🤦🏻‍♀️🤣) #audiofitness #audiobooks #audiofit #audiobooksandworkouts #fitsy #fitlitsy

The full series is listed as one, 33-hour audiobook on Audible so of course I decided to download it and listen to it. I‘ve never read these books (though I have tried) & am definitely enjoying listening to the stories.

Finished this audiobook last week. I‘ve never seen these movies, but I‘m glad I haven‘t because I‘ve heard they‘re awful and half of it is made up🤣 unsurprisingly, I loved the book, especially with Andy Serkis narrating it.

It‘s been a minute, Litsy. I‘m (mostly) finished with Return of the King (I‘m struggling with the appendices) and love it, although I definitely prefer Eowyn‘s bad bitch moment as it was portrayed in the movie over how it was written (sorry🤷🏻‍♀️). We‘ve been busy beavers in the past month, too, with new furniture and a new DIY backsplash☺️

MolliesaurusRex @Bklover thank you! I‘m so excited for my reading nook - I‘m looking forward to many sunny days sitting in front of the window with a good book and a cup of coffee☀️☕️📚 1y

Why does a book about “living with less” have so many “goodies” included? Otherwise, good insights & lots of things to think about.

I‘ve been slacking a bit in my goals - I haven‘t been consistent in working out or reading every day. I‘m not going to beat myself up over it, though - my true goal was to create the habits of working out and reading for enjoyment on a regular basis, which I am doing. I was just using the daily goal as a motivator. So far I‘ve finished 5 books in 2021, & I plan on getting through maybe even one more today with the snow day!

Thank you @Come-read-with-me for the lovely cards this holiday season! I know I‘m a little late with the Christmas one, but I really appreciated them, and they absolutely made my day. You‘re the best!❤️ #litsylove

MolliesaurusRex @Come-read-with-me I don‘t even bother with cards anymore because I always forget to mail them and then a year goes by and I‘m like “oh, I never mailed these”🤦🏻‍♀️🤣 2y

I loved the Sailor Moon anime series so of course I love the mangas. 1st finished book of 2021! So far I‘m on track with my daily reading & exercising goals. A little over 6 hours left in The Fellowship of the Ring, so I should be done with that one soon too. Working on the second Sailor Moon, Jade City, & Practical Magic for Beginners, too.🤦🏻‍♀️😅 #readinggoals #goalupdates #readingtoomanybooks #istheresuchathing?

Making my goals for this year less overwhelming. I‘m going to focus more on creating positive habits and less on reaching a specific number - either books read or weight lost. 2020 took a lot out of me, physically and emotionally, and I‘m going into 2021 with the intention of reclaiming those things. #newyeargoals #getitdone #smallgoals #creatinghabits

Does anyone else get random bouts of nostalgia and impulsively buy things they remember from childhood? Because I did, and thankfully ThriftBooks had this trilogy available because it apparently isn‘t being published anymore. This was one of my favorite series as a kid and I‘m so excited to read it again!❤️ #nostalgiabooks #bookseries #thriftbooksbuys #thanksthriftbooks #fifteendollarsfortheset #whaaaat #dealslut

1. Anything by Neil Gaiman. The Wrath & the Dawn books. The Lunar Chronicles. The list goes on and on.
2. Favorite comedies are all pretty much Seth Rogan comedies or other such dumb comedies. I also thoroughly enjoy White Chicks. Fantasy movies are always great for distractions.
3. Favorite podcast, hands down, is Lore. TV shows include GoT, My 600-Pound Life, Hoarders, Catfish (yes I love trashy reality TV)
4. Reading (obvs), also cross-stitch

wanderinglynn Neil Gaiman! 👍🏻🙌🏻 Thanks for playing 😀 2y

Wow. As for writing talent, definitely the ability to develop and balance an entire story, world, cast of characters, etc. that all mesh together. It can be learned, but it is more intuitive for some people than it is for others. & I can‘t pick a most talented writer, but Neil Gaiman, one of my absolute favorites, is definitely up there.
