Life is good. So was #20in4 . My goal was 13 hours of reading I hit 15:04. I am happy with that. Now, of my 10 and 13 yr old could find a way to get along the chances of me reaching 20 hours would be phenomenal. #HappyReading Litsy friends.
P.S. The Keepers of Metsan Valo was not what I expected but it is a solid 4⭐️

I plan to keep track of hours read. If I make it to 20 hours, great, but a more realistic for me would be 12 hours. #20in4 @Andrew65

I met 3 of the 6 #JoysOfJune goals. I am happy though. Life got in the way but all were good reasons. My best friend came to town. My teenager actually wanted to have conversations with me. So I am considering this readathon a success. @Andrew65

This was a fun read. It feels weird to say a book involving sex clubs and swingers was classy, but the book was written with class. It could have gone it an incredibly raunchy direction, it did not. It gave us glimpses into a scandalous world, without shaming.

This was just "ehhh" for me until the end. I think the concept was great but it was drawn out too long.

Sleeping, like #SirWatson , is what I should be doing, instead. It is 2:30am and I have just finished a book.
This book was an incredibly quick read, but a read that made me happy. I love that the relationship in this book showed that accepting a person at their worst is a big part of loving someone.

Feeling content. A feeling that I think is extremely underrated. My favorite room, a book I am enthralled by and and incredible playlist I found on Spotify. It is a great feeling to know there is nothing else you would rather be doing at the moment. #ContentmentIsAGoodThing #MarvelousMay

1. Medication, and alone time plus learning to spend less time on social media.
2. This week I have done more pour painting, and spent time outside reading and listening music.

This book was a Mother's Day gift. It is beautiful and this made me laugh out loud. "If at first you don't succeed have some cake."

Texreader One of the best books published! 2mo
Rissa1 @Texreader so happy my husband saw it and thought it would be a great Mother's Day gift. I have fallen in love with it! 2mo
Texreader @Rissa1 It‘s an awesome gift. A Litten sent it to me after a close friend died right at the beginning of the pandemic. So I gave a copy to a friend when she had to resume chemo. It‘s perfect for the right person at the right time. Your husband rocks 2mo

I just couldn't so it. Reading is my escape this book put me directly in the pages of social media. I think it could probably be a fantastic book but for my mental well being I bailed.

This was one of the easiest military reads I have ever had. There was not a ton of military lingo that a civilian wouldn't know, or isn't clearly explained. It was also a very quick read.

Photo of the skittles is just because I am incredibly happy to have the lime back.

I did it! I met my #AwesomeAprilGoal. I know it was only one book but I always host Easter and that is has a lot of prep involved. This was a blind date book and the pic of the signs is from a fb group and I couldn't pass up the screenshot to show my husband. Happy Easter. #ThingsInCommon

*Giveaway win

I wanted to get that part out of the way, simple and to the point. This was a fun read. I had the family dilemma figure out early, but it didn't matter, I still wanted to be on the journey. Plus, it never hurts, in my opinion, to put as many positive Jane Eyre references as possible in one book.
This is book one for April. Time to pick the next read for #ThingsInCommon . @Clwojick
