Wow, what a story. Didn‘t want to put it down. I told @KennethTolesJr that he needed to read it and he pinky-promised he‘d start it as soon as I got done with it and that he‘d finish it in a week...😆 Needless to say, it was late Saturday night and we had had a bit of wine with dinner. But I get to hand over the book tonight. 😌🤷🏽‍♀️ #mustread #scifi #darkmatter #YesiReads #TwinkyToles #MomoToles #mybrats #TolesBrats #catsoflitsy #dogsoflitsy

TheBookAddict For those of you who‘ve read this book: SPOILER!!!! How is it that only one of Jason2 made it to the original Jason‘s life? 🤔 1d

Definitely enjoying this one! I managed to evade all spoilers before reading it. I didn‘t even read the synopsis and I had forgotten what i read in the first 92 pages the first time I started it, so it was brand new to me. Not what I expected, but in a good way. Mystery, fantasy, and creepy. All in all, a good October read. Can‘t wait to see what happens next on September 3rd, 1940.

A #mustread for everyone, whatever your thoughts or views on the lgbtq+ community. A heartbreaking retelling of what happened on bus 57 in Oakland, what led to those events, and what preceded them. The author does a great job at sharing both sides of the story and the flaws in our “justice” system.

When you‘re making sure all books have a genre label and you happen upon the section that contains your not-so-favorite author and his not-so-great series (in your opinion), you take a deep breath and remind yourself that they are still books and you love books and you will take care of them anyway. 😬😪

ravenlee I‘ve never read Patterson, but what I know of him from his idiotic tv commercials makes me loathe him. 4w
LibrarianRyan Every once in a while he makes some great. But most of the time it‘s status quo 4w
TheBookAddict @ravenlee I liked his earlier books, Along Came A Spider stands out to me when I think of something good by him. I don‘t know what I‘d think of it if I read it now. Yes, his commercials are ridiculous. I liked the idea, but I didn‘t like the execution when it came to this series. It was torture reading the books. I wanted to know what happened to the characters, but I was in the middle of book 3 when I gave up, since it was going nowhere. 😔 4w
See All 7 Comments
TheBookAddict @ravenlee he was also throwing jabs and insinuating that his books were better than others, within this series. In particular the HP series among others. 4w
TheBookAddict @LibrarianRyan right, it‘s quite disappointing. It seems to me like he shoots for quantity not quality. I haven‘t read all of his books, but from the ones I‘ve read, I would say that his earlier books were better. 4w
ravenlee Once he started churning out multiple books per year, with “co-authors” in very small print, I figured he was pretty much done. Makes me wonder if his “collaboration” consists of throwing out a title and maybe a scenario, then leaving the other writer with all the work. 4w
TheBookAddict @ravenlee right, especially since he does have those courses he charges for and the perk is that at the end you get to coauthor a book with him. 🤦🏽‍♀️ and he boasts so much about how many books he writes in a year, even though he doesn‘t write them by himself. 4w

I‘m back!!! I‘ve been MIA for a while, not by choice but because of life. Towards the end of August Kenny was at the ER due to mold poisoning. We then had to try to find a new home ASAP due to the mold. This all happened while I was beginning work again. We still have boxes everywhere, but we are slowly but surely getting situated. I‘ll be happy when my books are all up on the shelves. 🤓 📚💕

Started listening to this today, so far so good. I know I‘m a bit late to the party. 🤷🏽‍♀️

We‘ve still been going on walks. I surpassed my step goal everyday this past week, except for Tuesday (less than 2,000 steps from it), but I still hit and passed my weekly goal of 77,000 steps because of the amount of steps I took the other days. I drank plenty of water, only drank 2 sugary drinks, but I didn‘t workout. I started intermittent fasting.

A really good book I enjoyed listening to in 1 day. #lgbtq #comingofage #ya #diversereads

I know I‘m late to the #BFCr3 check-in, but it was a bit of a crazy day. My friend got hired Thursday at a new school and they have open house on Monday, so we went in to help her setup her room...all day.😔 so I didn‘t get my mental health goal in today, like I had planned, but I surpassed my 77,000 steps goal, I only drank 1 sugary drink, and read 1 book.

TheBookAddict I forgot I was supposed to track water intake, but I do know that I at least met that 64oz water goal half of the week. I also worked out Monday - Friday, no yoga though. #BFC (edited) 2mo

This past week I wasn‘t as active as I had hoped, but it was ok. 🙂👍🏽

I read more than 6 books, because I couldn‘t stop reading the Wings of Fire series. I walked more than I set out to at the beginning of this challenge. I even had to change my step goal on FitBit.

This week I did quite a bit of crocheting, we went to the park a couple of days, we saved 2 young possums, I‘m reading the tagged book, and I signed up for round 3 of #BFC.

Also, I just realized that I didn‘t post a #checkin for the #BFC on Saturday. That‘s because I was super busy. I‘ve been keeping active and surpassing my FitBit step goal. I had to change it from 9,000 steps to 11,000 to make it more of a challenge. 🙂

Another fine walk at Sinnissippi Riverfront Park. We are being more active now, going on walks. It had definitely helped us feel better physically and emotionally. 🙂👍🏽
We saw this in the river and it was too cool not to take a pic and share it. Someone painted this tree in the middle of the river green and attached something red at the ends to make it look like moving tongues.

Just finished listening to this book. I enjoyed it, but it did take me a few #hoopla borrows to finish it. I don‘t read much nonfiction and it was long. I wouldn‘t say that it‘s a complete biography of Fred Rogers. It was mostly a biography of the show, because it didn‘t have much about his personal life. His life was glazed over. Nevertheless, he was a great man who is definitely missed. This world needs more people like him. 👇🏽

TheBookAddict And my #audiocrocheting paid off. 😆 what do you guys think? I made it for big books (used HP and the Goblet of Fire to make it) or for multiple small books. I‘m thinking of making more and selling them. I have patches for the other houses as well. 😏 #booksleeve #HP (edited) 3mo

Finishing this #audiobook on #hoopla. It‘s taking me a while, like most nonfiction books do...unless they are titled Becoming or Born A Crime 😉😅. I still enjoy it, it makes me think of what a great man Fred Rogers was and what a difference he made in kids‘ lives. I wish I had watched his show more.

Picture of an interesting find on our river front walk today. There are many river front parks here in Rockford, IL. #ParksOfRockford #PokemonGo

I‘ve been reading This Is How You Lose The Time War and a reference made me have a story craving 🤷🏽‍♀️. I want to read a book about knights, dragons, and wizards/magic or knights, dragons, and the supernatural. I thought if anyone could help me find something good with these elements it would be my wonderful Litsy friends. I‘ll even take a good King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table suggestion. 🙂 thanks!

#StoryCraving

Sweetkokoro The Chronicles of King Rolen‘s Kin is a good classic fantasy style book I absolutely love. It has princes, war, betrayal, magic, magical creatures, (And Byren is my love haha). I feel it falls Into this type of fantasy your looking for. The whole series is a favorite of mine. 3mo
Sweetkokoro There is also The Pendragon Cycle by Stephen R Lawhead, it‘s a retelling of the tale of King Arthur, it‘s kind of long and I‘m still working my way through it but it‘s good so far to my liking and I love King Arthur haha. (edited) 3mo

I‘ve been doing quite a bit of #audiocrocheting this past week, so I‘m finishing up book 11 in the #WingsOfFire series. It‘s soooo good! I‘ve also gotten quite a bit of walking in. The weather this week wasn‘t good for outside walking, so I‘ve been walking all over the house trying to stay active. A few days I just turned #QueerEye on and paced in the living room (love it). We had heat advisory warnings most of thee week. #BFC

Hello Litsy and #BFC friends! I‘ve been mia for a bit now, but this summer has been quite unpredictable so I haven‘t been reading much.

We‘ve been going to the park for walks...my legs are sore from going uphill and downhill. 🙂👍🏽

Hello everybody and #BFC peeps. Just posting a late #checkin. 😅
I had a rough start to round 2, but I‘m looking forward to a better week 2 🙂👍🏽. This past week I did yoga 2 days and I got on the elliptical 1 day (and I have the sore muscles to prove it). I‘ve been at my mom‘s since Friday, so I‘ll be getting back on track when I get home.
Tagged is book 7 of the series I‘m obsessed with. The pic is of #MomoToles enjoying his time at grandma‘s.

“What is with you and faces?” Kibley said. “You should try threatening someone‘s elbows or ankles once in a while just for a change of pace.” 🤣🤣🤣

My #obsession, I love this series!

Peddler410 My daughter started reading it but hasn‘t picked one up in awhile. I‘ve been curious about the series. 4mo
TheBookAddict @Peddler410 it has become one of my favorite series. I‘ve been listening to the audiobooks through Hoopla. The narrator is great and brings the story to life. After each book I just have to keep reading because I need to know what happens next. 4mo

I still didn‘t get to the 85,000 steps, but I was definitely more active than I was last week. I‘ve been busy and I have the sore muscles to prove it 😝. I read 7 books out of the 6 book goal 🙌🏽. I‘m so excited for round 2!

Goals:
•10-15 min. Morning and night yoga
•2 5min. Intervals on the manual treadmill with an addition of a 5min. Interval once my body is ready for it (everyday)
•10min. Workout video 3days/week
•8 books

I enjoyed it! I stumbled upon it on #hoopla and decided to give it a try. I‘m not disappointed. I love that it‘s told through the perspective of the dragons and it‘s a world of dragons and not humans. Wonderfully narrated.

I have 59 minutes left in this audiobook, so I started looking for the next one in the series...but I couldn‘t find it. I was searching for “The Dragonet Prophecy” instead of “Wings of Fire” like a dummy. 🤦🏽‍♀️ it‘s so late my brain isn‘t working right. So I jumped the gun and frantically looked for the series on amazon. Needless to say the boxed set of books 1-5 will get to me on Friday and I just found the audiobooks on hoopla. 😔 🧠 💨

TheBookAddict For some reason I kept thinking the series was called The Dragonet Prophecy instead of it just being the subtitle for the 1st book. 🤦🏽‍♀️ 🤷🏽‍♀️ yay, more books I guess. 😆😅🙌🏽 📚 (edited) 4mo
