Starting this today!

xxjenadanxx I've seen him speak about Bram before. Interesting guy! 4d
Nerdy_Bookworm @xxjenadanxx I wouldn't mind listening to him give a lecture about Bram. I'd find it fascinating! 😊 3d
xxjenadanxx I saw him at a convention and it seemed like he could have gone on talking forever! Maybe he will speak near you sometime! 2d
Nerdy_Bookworm @xxjenadanxx I sure hope he does! I'd gladly pay to hear him speak! 😊 1d

Since Frey ended our friendship, I decided to buy my Craig Halloran novels. I bought a few tonight, including the tagged set. So, I can finally continue my journey with Sid and Smoke!

I may or may not have a vampire obsession. I am watching Dracula, while I read Dracula. It's safe to say, Dracula is my favorite vampire in all of literature, Lestat is a close second!

I found the audiobook for the complete Sherlock Holmes series on YouTube. I'm excited about the narrator most. It's narrated by none other than Stephen Fry. I know what I'm listening to today!

Update: she came and took back the book I borrowed from her. She wanted to add salt to an already open wound by giving me a copy of a book she had two copies of. Am I hurt? Yes. Am I upset and angry? Absolutely. But am I glad I got a new book out of it? Hell yes!

I'm done trying to make friends because one way or another, I ruin it. I'll just stick to my books, they won't leave me like my best friend just did. Yea, tonight just went from bad to worse... I'm an emotional wreck. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

DrexEdit I'm sorry you're not having an easy day. Sometimes books can help by providing an escape or at least a distraction. I hope things get better for you soon! 2w

Megabooks I am so sorry!! I‘ve had a rough two years and lost my three high school best friends (after making it to out mid-thirties) to them not being able to accept my ongoing illness. It‘s painful as hell!! Seriously!! But I‘ve made new friends, and I‘m working on slowly letting them in. I‘ve also been getting involved in places like here where people are less judgmental. We are here for you. You are a great person. Remember that!!! Hugs!!! 💕💕 2w
Nerdy_Bookworm @Megabooks Thank you so much. My friendship ended over something petty that I had no control over sadly. She overreacted and ended the friendship. Hopefully one day, I'll have the courage to let others in my life, but right now, my abandonment fears/issues are preventing it because I don't want to get hurt again. I'm just glad my fellow readers are here for me through this, it makes me feel less alone ❤ 2w
Megabooks I‘ve had some other friends from different parts of my life that I still talk to, but 2 of 4 live far away. Maybe there‘s someone you can talk to via text to just have a person, even if you don‘t fully open up. I‘m very scared of rejection in romantic relationships and haven‘t dated anyone in 4 years, so I get it. It‘s okay to be sad and draw inward, but try to gently reach out in a bit. You may not have a BFF right away, but I‘m amazed with how🔽 2w
Megabooks Far I‘ve come. It‘s especially hard if you‘re introverted. I‘m sorry a close friendship ended over something so trivial, but I hope, at some point when you‘re comfortable, you can work on making new friends. Until then, post here! 💜💜 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage I feel you. Breaking up with my friends has been as traumatic (or more) than some of my relationships. You‘re not alone. 😘 2w
Nerdy_Bookworm @BarbaraTheBibliophage It was painful because I lost another friend not even a few months ago because she wasn't who I thought she was, and I was finally healing from that and was starting to let my guard down, then this happened. I've taken three hard blows in terms of friendships ending this year. Now, it's time for me to heal and move forward with my life. But the fact that you and our fellow Littens are here for me, makes me feel less alone! ❤ 2w

So, I am in direct correspondence with one of my favorite fantasy authors: Craig Halloran! We have been emailing back and forth and I told him I was a huge fan of his Darkslayer and Nath Dragons series. He then proceeds to tell me he did a crossover of the two series, and sent me his Clash of Heroes series as a gift! Thank you Craig! You never disappoint!

NOS4A2 | Joe Hill
post image

Guys, guys!!! So, I was watching some Stephen King videos on YouTube earlier, and found a video about the King of Horror's son Joe, and how his book NOS4A2 is going to be an AMC event. My King even said it was super scary! Without further ado, I am reading my first Joe Hill novel!

TrishB This is a great read 👍🏻 Enjoy! 3mo
KathyWheeler Joe Hill is fantastic! His other books are really good too, although this one is my favorite. 3mo
FreeReadAndWrite I read 2 joe hill books before I realized he was King's son 😂 3mo
Nerdy_Bookworm @FreeReadAndWrite I actually watched an interview about that. He said that Joe didn't want the world to really know he was Stephen's son just in case he didn't fit the hype, so he stuck with his pseudonym of Joe Hill, but I already knew that Joe is my King's son. Joe Hillsom King. 3mo
