Spoopy poolside reading while the kids I babysit are at their swim lessons. Oh how I wish I could hop in that water!
I haven‘t posted about this in awhile, but I‘m still going! #booked2019 I‘m having a slow reading year...I‘d already read like 60 books by this time last year! I think I‘m at 20 now...Anyone have good suggestions for #genrebusting ?
Oooohhhh, so this is creepy and interesting and I can‘t stop reading. My first book by McGuire but if it‘s all as good as the first 50 pages it definitely won‘t be my last.
#bfc #bookfitnesschallenge holy cow! This class owned me, I definitely had to modify some moves but I‘m going back Friday! I‘m meeting my fitness goals, slowlllly getting better with the food goals. How‘s everyone else doing?
Oh, I wasn‘t doing anything, just trying to read...this book has been a pretty big eye opener so far.
#bookfitnesschallenge #bfc I‘ve been doing well with some goals, and others not as much. I‘ve been keeping up with exercise and have been steadily cutting out the bunches of coffee cups I drink every day. The goal to go teeto isn‘t doing as well, but I‘m cutting back, so there‘s that! I started swimming again this week and remembered how much I love it! I‘m slow, but it‘s so relaxing and I still feel like I get a good workout.
While I didn‘t ace all my goals, I do think I moved around a lot today! I even made myself do my nighttime yoga even though I was feeling lazy. #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc I‘m listening to this while I exercise, but I‘m having the same problem I had with her other book, I‘m so over the narrator! I‘ll probably finish it on paper.
I saw this yesterday and am excited to start! I had to think about my goals, and I would like to keep hitting 7 workouts a week, cut alcohol and go completely teeto, take my dog on more walks, only eat fast food once a week, cut back on caffeine (I drank too much this morning and have awful anxiety right now), and read a book a week. Here goes! #bookfitnesschallenge #BFC
Rainy weekend means I‘m getting lots of reading in! Finished Baby Teeth (so creepy) and this is next!
Update - So sad to DNF this one! I was really looking forward to it. I got over half way and realized that, though the characters are diverse, no one has a personality. I didn‘t really know any of them. Or care enough to know what happens to them. That and all the repetitive paragraphs (someone needed a better editor) have me saying peace out.
I was reading this earlier and looked up to see my cat staring at me. No, it wasn‘t because she loves me, it was dinner time and she was patiently waiting for me to move, haha.
Book related, this is not my typical thing but I‘m really enjoying it. A nice easy read (though there are some heavy topics) is exactly what I need this last quarter, all my senior students have senioritis BAD. 🙀
“Not a wind, not even a high, exactly, but an elevation. A sense that you had gone beyond yourself and could go farther still.”
I had no idea what to expect from this little book. Slow, but I am listening to the audiobook and am enjoying hearing King narrate. It‘s different, that‘s for sure!
An evening of babysitting cut way shorter than I thought it would be. So now it‘s me, my pup, and a book. Also, the music from my neighbors LIVE tejano band (they‘re really good!) and my husband playing fortnite, haha. I‘m enjoying this, but I‘m not 100% behind the narration style yet.
This was my first LaCour book and while it won‘t be my last I definitely need some time before the next if all her books are this intense. A heartbreaking story lovingly written.
So I‘ve noticed with a few of my recent #botm that the binding comes loose super easy. I don‘t feel like a book should already look like this on the first read through. Anyone else noticed a dip in quality? I don‘t mind if covers are cheaper quality (like Circe), but if the books actually fall apart I may just have to #quitbotm
Honestly, if I hadn‘t already swapped a book for #booked2019 I may have already DNF‘d this one. It just doesn‘t seem cohesive, I don‘t know where this is going. It feels like maybe it‘s a novel that could have been a short story. Thank goodness I‘m just listening on my commute. Anyone else have a hard time with this one? @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft
Next up! I enjoyed Bird Box, and this one has got me feeling stressed already! In this Carol falls into comas where she seems dead but isn‘t, and she may be in danger of being buried alive. As someone who sometimes has sleep paralysis the whole idea of being aware of what‘s going on and not being able to move is all too familiar!
I watched the Netflix show first and then listened to the book. Both are very different, but I enjoy each version! The book feels more like an old school mystery and the show is gorgeous and beautiful. Both pulled at my emotions, I don‘t think I could say one is better than the other.
Starting this before bed. This is the one I was wishing I had put on my backpack earlier today, haha. The story sounds really interesting, there‘s magic, and I‘m a sucker for novels that take place in Paris.
When you are babysitting after work and forget to bring a book....you hit up Goodwill I actually found a nice sized stack rather than just buying one for the evening...I guess it‘s good I‘m babysitting! Haha
Does anyone use the webtoons app? If you do, what are your favorites?
I am in love with Lore Olympus by Rachel Smythe. It plays fast and loose with mythology, but the art! And Persephone is just the most precious cinnamon roll to ever exist.
This sticker was a travesty! Who does that?!? I think I found the magic combo for getting stickers off though! A hair dryer to warm the sticker and get it mostly off then I sprayed the glue that was still left with a degreaser. No more sticker and no more sticky!
