Happy Saturday Littens! Nothing like a cup of pour over and a book to start the day. A little peace and me time before all the stuff that has to get done today. Thanks to a migraine, I totally missed my 1 year Litsy-versary yesterday! This still is my favorite corner of the internet. Here‘s to many more years 💜

The Outsider | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

King takes a paranormal and mythological turn in The Outsider. Do you really know the people around you as well as you think you do? Can you reconcile a friend committing a heinous crime? When the clues seem irrefutable, you have no choice. But what if the clues aren‘t exactly what they seem? One person can‘t possibly be in two different places at the same time. So what‘s the real answer? It might be more horrifying than the crime itself

🎆 Andrew and I drank wine, ate snacks and binged the first 4 episodes of The Witcher. It was low key and perfect
📚Unless I‘m doing a readathon that requires me to plan, I never plan TBR‘s. I‘m definitely a mood reader. I hope to get at least a couple done
📙my word for 2020 is: connection. Connecting more with others but most importantly, connecting with my true and inner self that I‘ve kept hidden for far too long

#thoughtfulthursday

MoonWitch94 A superb word. And I don‘t like planning either but I have been in a slump lately so I hope my goal get me over it. Thanks for playing 🥳🎆📚 3y

Drums of Autumn | Diana Gabaldon

Here‘s my pick for #Chunksterchallenge2020 not *quite* 1000 pages, but other than IT which I started last year and am halfway through, this is the chunkiest book on my TBR shelf. However this is a large book (by paperback standards) in tiny print. Her previous book clocked in at 1054 and is roughly 2/3‘s the size of this one so hopefully this meets the requirements. Also felt like my “soon-ish” sloth mug was appropriate for this challenge 😂

Amiable Great pick! The books in that series are definitely chunksters! 👍🏼 3y
Prairiegirl_reading Love the mug! 3y
Scochrane26 Any of the Outlander fit the requirement, esp the 5th one. I‘m thinking of joining in since I want to read the 7th one this yr. 3y

This year brought a lot of new challenges and one of those side effects meant my reading was pretty dismal. Won‘t come close to the goal I set at the beginning of the year, but why not end on a high note going into the new year and new decade? Done working for the week so I‘m going to settle in and get this going! #24B42020

I‘ve been dying to read both books, especially been wanting to start the Dark Tower series (I love me a good book series 😂).

While reading this book I learned, as a 30 year old, things I had never been told about my body. I went into the book thinking this method would be too time consuming or complicated and learned to my happy surprise that neither were true. Whether you‘re interested in utilizing fertility awareness or not, this is a must read for all uterus havers. I only wish I had found this book sooner and perhaps saved myself from more invasive, harmful methods.

sherryvdh This book changed so much for me! It gave me such a new understanding of my body. I also felt I found it way too late. And I agree, it is a must read. It drives me crazy that we aren't taught the basic functions of female bodies. 3y
GingerAntics I‘m a little skeptical. I grew up catholic and saw all the large families compliments of “natural birth control.” 3y
RvnclawWhovian @GingerAntics lol I grew up catholic too and trust me, this isn‘t the rhythm method 😉 3y
See All 12 Comments
RvnclawWhovian @sherryvdh so happy you found it, knowing one‘s body is so liberating 3y
GingerAntics Hm. I‘m going to have to check this out. If nothing else, apparently there‘s info about my body I‘m missing. Clearly the catholic school sex ed didn‘t cover ANYTHING useful. 3y
RvnclawWhovian @GingerAntics yea catholic school sex Ed is kind of a joke, although mine was a little more progressive in the sense that they didn‘t teach abstinence only. A lot of people think fertility awareness and the rhythm method are the same thing and they‘re not, like at all. Highly recommend giving this a read 3y
GingerAntics Oh wow. Yeah, mine was in no way progressive. “God made women to have babies.” My favourite was “God doesn‘t like sex, so he turns his back when you‘re having it, so you should do it as quickly as possible and get it over with so God‘s back is turned to you for the least amount of time possible.” 🤦🏼‍♀️ That was totally written by a man. Lord knows that was written by a man. (edited) 3y
GingerAntics Then I broke the # 1 rule of 5th grade sex ed survival, I raised my hand and asked a question. The answer to which required my question being passed on to the priest in the building, the priest at the other campus, some one at the local office, then on to the archbishop, who happened to be a family friend, who guess I was the one who asked the question, simply by finding out which school it came from. 🤣😂🤣 3y
GingerAntics 😇 Nearly made the teacher swallow his tongue. It was awesome!!! 🤣😂🤣 3y
RvnclawWhovian @GingerAntics 😂😂😂😂 most definitely written by a man. Good lord that‘s some terrible advice lol. No wonder there were so many unplanned pregnancies 🤦‍♀️ like I said in the review, even if you have no intention of using FAM as a method of birth control, I still think it‘s valuable info that every person with a uterus should know. FWIW, I‘ve been doing it for 1.5 years and have been very happy and successfully childless 3y
GingerAntics Hm. So it does seem to actually work. I‘m always up for learning more about the wonders of the human body. I read “She Comes First” for my NaNo project last year and I actually learned stuff about my own anatomy. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I‘ll give this a go! 3y

3. The Shining. The deterioration of the human mind is terrifying
4. “Necessary” gore, sure. Gore for the sake of gore, nah.
5. Sadly no but trying to change that

This was a fun, light historical fiction read. While predictable at times, it still made me want to keep reading and find out what was going to happen to our two main characters. This overall light, and at times romantic, feeling of this book is the perfect palette cleanser after something more emotionally heavy or a big series read

SilversReviews Enjoyed this book. 3y

Bailedbailed

At this point I‘m pretty good at picking books I know I‘ll like and it‘s rare for me not to like one. It‘s rarer still for me to bail on a book. That was evidenced in my slog through The Night Circus. But one thing I learned from that is there‘s no reason to force myself to read something I‘m just not feeling. I feel like at some point I will read this and enjoy it, but right now it‘s just not doing it for me and is collecting dust on my table

DaveGreen7777 Oh, no! Hope your next read is 5-star worthy to help make up for this one! 3y
RvnclawWhovian @DaveGreen7777 the thing is I feel like this book is right up my alley but something just isn‘t doing it for me right now. I think maybe because I‘m usually a mood reader but I started this because it was on a list I made for a readathon and it felt forced. I‘ll try picking it up again when the mood strikes me 3y
julesG Forced never works for me. Also, I didn't like the Night Circus. It sounded like my kind of book, but it wasn't. 3y

I‘m not sure what it is. Maybe the fact that I loved Milk and Honey so much made me expect too much out of this one. But something about this one just didn‘t totally do it for me. There were a number of poems that made me feel all the feels. But if I hadn‘t needed to finish this to complete a readathon, I‘m not sure I ever would have.

RvnclawWhovian @annamatopoetry oh awesome! Where at in Washington?! Trust me, I am not a morning person. But when you get back to the beginning of the trail and you see the masses of people showing up, you‘re real happy you‘re done lol. Plus, you‘re home before noon so plenty of time for a nap 3y

Never done one of these before but I love me some self improvement. So let‘s start!

Reading Goals: My reading in August, for lack of a better word, sucked. Only read Managed to read 2 books because I finished Cruel Prince in one day. So my goal is simply to read at least a book a week to try and get back into my groove.

Went to go “look around” while Andrew was at Home Depot. Oops 🙃 this is why I‘m not allowed in Barnes & Noble unsupervised. My kind of Sunday funday! #bookhaul #barnesandnoble

RvnclawWhovian @Andrew65 lol it‘s so true! Even his response “This is kinda on me, I should know better than to let you go there alone” was like something you‘d say to a kid 😂 3y

While the fiancé watched college football, I started and finished The Cruel Prince today. A couple chapters in I thought, “Well, good thing we don‘t have plans today because this is what I‘m doing”. Now I can officially say I read more than one book this month ??‍♀️ This one reeled me in fast and didn‘t let go. Good thing I bought the second book first by mistake lol! Review forthcoming when I catch up on my increasing backlog ?
