Snuggles on Sunday and I‘m almost 500 pages into this. Technically a reread for me but I read it nearly 14 years ago so it‘s really like a brand new story again. #dogsoflitsy featuring Calli who obviously loves human contact.

Just setting up for the #readathon #deweyoct today #deweyreadathon #readathonhourlyphoto and can‘t wait to dive into some graphic novels.

Ninth House | Leigh Bardugo

Just finished Ninth House yesterday and I absolutely enjoyed it. Took me a while to engage in the story with all the headaches I have been having. Now I‘m aching for more and I know it will be a while! Perfect spooky read for October. Definitely an adult read. Picture features Zeus who is my guardian dog and has to be by my side at all times. #dogsoflitsy

Plans for my day off if my head stops pounding. My dentist warned me my pain would increase after my procedure yesterday since there was an infection in my tooth and he was right.
Back up plan is to binge The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

I‘ve had a not so good weekend so far. Bad dental news, my bff lost her dog and my sis in law shared some bad news. But I met Leigh Bardugo today (for the third time) and am going to lose all my troubles by diving into this book and snuggling Calli. #reading #dogsoflitsy

Really enjoyed this part memoir part made up graphic novel. I‘ve read Maggie‘s other graphic novel as well and loved it. I like the spin she takes on this one and how it all comes together in the end. Featuring Zeus who likes to sleep under my feet when I‘m on the couch. #graphicnovel #dogsoflitsy

Mine is Belle for obvious reasons I would think. 😊📚 #fairytale
