Signed up for a murder mystery quilt along! Each month I‘ll get a square and a chapter of the mystery! Combines my loves of quilting AND reading. I think this is going to be a lot of fun to quilt and read along to!

Over a month ago my cats saw a cat through an open window and then proceeded to get in a bad fight with each other. They‘ve just started being okay being around each other again. We spent a good chunk of today hanging out. I‘m so happy! It‘s been so stressful having to keep them separated.

I saw this in the Halloween discount bin for $6 (from $30!) and had to have it for my shelves. Is it weird to have a Halloween decoration up all year? Haha

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego That's cool. I'd keep it up all year round. 2mo
wanderinglynn That is awesome! I‘d keep it up. I have several “Halloween” decorations I keep up all year. 2mo

Of course I would get over my reading slump as soon as the school year starts. Finished 3 books in a little over a week after struggling to finish pretty much any books. This one was so good. I‘m anxiously awaiting book 2!

Man, this podcast is cathartic after being the only person in my book club who just really hated Ready Player Two. This podcast is like Mystery Science Theater/Rifftrax for bad books. After this one I may read along with Midnight Sun (I love Twilight but also know it‘s garbage, lol).

ferskner Oh my gosh this is a great recommendation! I love being snarky about books. 6mo

The Last One: A Novel | Alexandra Oliva

We start our school year earlier than most other schools and our days are a bit longer, so I‘m usually off a bit before other teachers. I have two weeks, TWO, before summer camp starts. I‘m almost through the first and while I haven‘t done a lot (and still worked a bit) I‘m making sure to take time for myself. I feel a little guilty, but after this crazy school year I know I need it at the same time!

#botm I‘m looking forward to Arsenic and Adobo. At first I wasn‘t sure about it but I‘m seeing so much buzz I had to get it. Same with The Hunting Wives. I went ahead and got When the Sky Fell on Splendor since it has been on my wishlist. Went a little nuts this month. 🤣

The amount of references is making me feel like I‘m listening to a Wikipedia article. This would be a DNF if it wasn‘t for book club, and I LOVED the first book. The references are way less organic than in the first book. They don‘t add to the story much in my opinion, just go to show how much pop culture knowledge Cline has. Every time the plot meanders into trivia facts a part of me wants to scream.

TheSpineView I felt much the same way. The 2nd book was such as disappointment. 11mo

Does it bother anyone else when they change the covers for the newest book and then your old covers don‘t match anymore? Like, these are nice covers but I‘m not rebuying the series and now my set is mismatched.

Branwen YES! I have been super aggravated about this very series for this very same reason all day! 🤣😂 I want the covers to match! But I would feel ridiculous buying the first four books again when my copies are in fine condition! *sighs* 11mo
Soubhiville That‘s incredibly frustrating! 11mo
AvidlyAlexis Yes! This drives me crazy! I have the first three in paperback so I may buy this one in paperback when available if it matches. 11mo

My area got a once in a lifetime winter storm. While it‘s nothing compared to places that typically get snow, we don‘t really have the infrastructure. Over a million without power, including me (the house is 53 and dropping inside!). School has been cancelled the next two days. I guess I‘ll get some reading done!

Phew, not enjoying this one at all. Reading it for book club and I got stuck at the beginning. My audiobook hold came in just in time! While I‘m so frustrated at so many things in the book, I am loving Wheaton‘s narration. I‘ve gotten this far in two days. Amazing what a difference a good narrator can make!

I let my seniors vote this year and they unanimously chose this over Macbeth. Now, I love Macbeth, but I was also think after such a rough year that students may want something lighter. They have been loving their aquatic science class and I think this will be a good connection to that. I‘ve never read it (other teachers at school have used it) so I‘ve got some speed reading to do!

Kdgordon88 Great choice! I love this book. 11mo

It‘s my book club‘s choice so I‘m starting this instead of another book. I‘ve struggled finishing picks from my book club (or any books, actually, this year), but by golly, I‘m finishing this one!

Karisa I can't wait, but I'm trying to save that one for January! Heard him talking about it on the Daily Show and it sounds so good! As soon as I get past the holidays. . . 13mo
