This was an interesting read. Some of it rang true and I did get some insights in reading this. It‘s not meant to be a true guide but makes some suggestions on typical behavior/personality traits depending on birth order. Definitely could relate some of it to me/my family

Will | Will Smith

I listened to this one on audio (as I usually do in the case of celeb memoirs/biographies because I find it much more entertaining hearing them read it). I always loved Will Smith and he told a lot of stories I had never heard before. It was interesting getting a read on his philosophy on life. The audio was a highly entertaining experience and I recommend going that route

LoverOfLearning This is on my shelf legit staring at me haha begging me to read it! ha 3w

My reading has really been slow going this year so far so I‘ve only just finished my #bookspin from January. I did enjoy this one a fair bit - wasn‘t my favorite but it was interesting for sure. The characters felt fresh and unique

The Writer's Idea Book | Jack Heffron

A friend bought this for me years ago when I first started writing (like literally 20 years ago now) and while I‘d used a handful of prompts before, this was the first time I went all the way through. I‘ve been stuck trying to figure out what my next writing project should be. Some prompts/advice were helpful, others not as much. But it got me thinking which is always good

I‘ve literally been the worst about reading since the new year started. Some of it is just general life getting in the way but honestly a lot of it is tv 😬 😂

My goal is to finish at least one of the two books I have in progress. Completely doable. And hopefully move further along in the other

Sorry for the non-bookish post but where are my NSYNC/JC fans at? A group of fans got a hold of an early release of JC‘s second solo album from 2006, The Story of Kate. They put it up on YouTube to share with everyone - JC‘s team is aware this is happening and doesn‘t seem upset about it. So this is how I‘ve been spending my evening - coloring while I listen to this amazing album

https://youtu.be/uHIB-7ymzjI

TheDaysGoBy I encourage everyone to give it a listen even if you‘re not/weren‘t a fan. It‘s an incredible album and JC is the most talented singer ever. His range is unreal 4mo

My goals for the month:

- Read 2 books (not counting the one I just finished)
- Workout 2x a week
- Hit daily step count of 8,000 (see if I can get consistent with that and then work my way up to 10,000. So hard to get even close to any of that working from home)

@wanderinglynn #BFC2022

I‘m not usually huge on romance novels but I really enjoyed this! The characters were great and I could relate a lot to Mae. Particularly the bit where she recognized how doing things for tradition sake isn‘t always the best - that it‘s great to have some spontaneity sometimes too. Such a fun, quick read

Finally finished this one. It‘d been on my TBR for a while and I did enjoy it. I probably would have stronger feelings about it if life hadn‘t kept getting in the way creating long pauses between reading sessions. But the story was intriguing and I enjoyed unraveling the mystery. It was very involved

This morning I watched *NSYNC‘s Ntimate Holiday Special that aired back in 2000. I‘ve been a fan since a teen but it was just in the last couple years my old obsession has been reignited. Last Christmas I watched this awesome special before heading to see family and kept the tradition this year. Watching them makes my heart happy

After seeing the news that Mike Nesmith died today, I broke out my Monkee episodes and made a point of watching The Christmas Show episode. Mike was my favorite, and I‘m sad he‘s no longer with us. It‘s been fun watching these episodes again though

Overall I thought this was an interesting read that did make me think more about some of the apps. Also made me appreciate even more what an amazing community we have here on Litsy. It‘s so refreshing the vibe on here compared to things like Facebook and Twitter.

Some parts of this read a little dry but overall I learned a lot and it made me think.

I just listened to all three of these audiobooks. They were a super quick read and I think got me in a mind to try to get back on track with my writing. It‘s fallen to the wayside as of late so I appreciated his tips and tricks.

This book was really interesting. I was one of those people who graduated with a lot of debt and it was interesting to truly understand how we as a nation got here. I learned a lot and it honestly makes me want to pay off my remaining debt even faster 😂 Seriously though, it was a fascinating read!

Mehso-so

This book was just a so-so for me I think. I liked the characters and the story itself kept me interested, but there weren‘t any answers by the end. Not really. It felt more philosophical than anything and watching a town handle the epidemic of people falling asleep was so surreal given everything we‘ve experienced as a society with Covid.

Overall I think this was just an okay read for me. I liked it fine but wasn‘t really satisfied by the end

BarbaraBB Great review. I was underwhelmed by this one too. 7mo
slategreyskies Ah, I have this one on my list, but I‘ve seen it get mixed reviews. I‘ll probably still read it, but at least I know not to have high hopes for it. :) 7mo
TheDaysGoBy @BarbaraBB I was disappointed because the cover was gorgeous - wanted to keep this one around 😂 But looks like I‘ll probably donate it so I can make room for more books I‘ll hopefully love 7mo
TheDaysGoBy @slategreyskies You might like it. Everyone has different taste. Maybe I just had a different idea what this story was going to be? I don‘t know but it‘s a quick read regardless 7mo

Just getting this in before Wednesday is over. Thanks for the tag @Eggs !

1. No. I‘ve considered it a few times but have trouble deciding on one
2. Instagram or Pinterest. I have Facebook and Twitter too but overall I‘m not super active on social media except for Litsy
3. Being done with my in office days for the week. Getting up at 7:30 tomorrow instead of 6am will be amazing

So this was a different kind of drama/thriller than I‘m used to and I mean that in a good way. It had an interesting premise and I was definitely invested in the characters. Was it my favorite? No but it kept my attention and was an easy read.

rjsthumbelina I love some of her older stuff. I have been meaning to try 1 of her thrillers, but I'm not sure how well I think her writing style will transfer to that genre 8mo
