Hey guys! As some of you have noticed, I am back from my hiatus. I admitted in the #24b4Monday discord earlier that I probably wouldn‘t hit my 24 because I had good news and I‘m feeling celebratory. I want to share the news. Some of you may recall that I‘ve been fighting for disability since June 2017, after falling ill in 2016. My entire life snowballed from there. Saturday, I received a letter from the SSA: my fight is over. I won my case.

CarolynM That's great news! It must be a huge relief for you. Nice to see you back here, too🙂 2y

Just finished reading this, and it‘s perhaps the first book I‘ve read in a year. Erotic horror isn‘t really my thing, but I actually swallowed this one in a couple big chunks. It was fun.

Update: I know it‘s been a long time since I talked to you guys. As you can see from the photo, my boys are still healthy and well (and perfect grounding when I‘m hallucinating, which is something else I‘ve developed). I hope everyone is good!

This book is seriously boring me. But apparently not Otis the #gingerbrat #catsoflitsy

JeannieReads Same! I read it for book club, and thought it was so boring, predictable, and formulaic that I struggled to get through it. There are some pretty crazy articles out there on the author, though. Those are a fun read. 3y

kay89 Definitely recommend reading the New Yorker article about this author if you haven‘t gotten to it yet. The author is like a Highsmith character! 3y

Yeeeeah this isn‘t happening. If the first 30 pages are pretty much exposition, I get bored. I might pass this one off.

I‘m about to pass the fifteen hour mark for #24B4Monday! I may not finish until two or three am Monday morning, but I don‘t count it as Monday until after I sleep!

Drew this one as my next read for #24B4Monday from my #popjargame Gonna shower first though. It‘s helping me keep sane. Otis the #gingerbrat is missing, and I‘m having a rough time. Please pray for his safe return. Or cast a spell for me, whatever it is that you do. 💜

DGRachel Oh no! I hope you find your baby soon. I‘d be losing my mind, too, if one of my dogs escaped. 3y
TheGhastlyGrimoire @DGRachel I‘m convinced one of the neighbors has him in their house and he‘s just waiting for a chance to get out. He‘s such a lovable, doofy boy. 3y

Just hit the 67% mark in this book, and I only use this tracker for the marathons. So I‘m almost to the 7hr mark!!! #24b4monday

Also I‘m really digging this book.

BeansPage Girl you're about to hit double digits!!! That's fantastic 👏🙌 3y

Starting this one. I‘ve been on a bailing streak, with only one novel finished lately so here‘s to hoping I enjoy this one! #24B4Monday So glad I checked Litsy in time to catch this #readathon, ‘cause I‘m always missing them!

BeansPage Awe well you didn't miss this one and we are glad to have you sweetie. Have you heard of the new game we're playing? 3y
TheGhastlyGrimoire @TheReadingMermaid I have not. I‘ve kinda mostly been out of the loop for a while now. 3y

Hoping to get out of my reading slump. Please send good vibes. I‘m flaring up again and I just broke up with my toxic boyfriend.

Started this for a review due the 18th. Not bad so far, but the passive voice is a little too strong. Also, 12% in and I have eight characters to keep track of? Like whaaaa.

Pruzy But those notes look amazing! 3y

So I somehow missed that this weekend was a #24in48, which means I‘m getting a very late start. I don‘t plan to stay up the next 24 hours either, so I‘ll settle for a goal of 12 hours. That‘s better than nothing, right?

GypsyKat Absolutely! It‘s just fun to participate and a good excuse to get some reading in! 😊 3y

RainyDayReading Really loving that cover. I don‘t know what it is about older horror novels, but I like their covers so much more than newer novels sometimes. 3y
Gina That cover is so ala Stephen King! Late 70s? 3y
Gina Nice! I love playing the game of what yearish was this book released by the cover art. 3y

My current reads.

I decided to come back, even though the issues making it difficult to use Litsy on iPhone X haven‘t been fixed. Mostly because I miss you all and I‘m terribly lonely on the bookish friend front.

Due to the lack of updates and failure to optimize for iPhone X, I will not be using Litsy for the foreseeable future. I can be followed on Twitter and instagram @agrimscythe.

BookwormAHN I just followed you on Instagram, but I'll miss you on Litsy 🐱 3y
