I was taking my #audiowalk yesterday, lost in the tagged book, when I looked up and saw all this stuff in a tree. So weird.
I just don‘t like anyone in this book.
I decided to finish #bfcr3 with a bang today. A hike plus yard work have me counting down the minutes until I can get into bed with my book. It‘s been a good week- I was sick as a dog last weekend but am bouncing back with some healthy eating and self care.
Out of the eight books I listened to while active this round the tagged book is by far my favorite.
Stay well bfcers. See you next time!
I‘ve been re-reading this series off and on, and I think this is the one when they really got good. They‘re all good mysteries, but in this one relationships start to form between the inspectors and the villagers, and that, to me, is what really makes this series.
My TBR for the next month or so- not as many books as usual because of the CHUNKSTERS.
This book had plenty of strategies for helping pre-teen and teenage girls deal with stress. It‘s something I‘ll keep in mind as my daughter grows, and for myself since no one was talking about this kind of stuff when I was a kid.
Note: hopefully now that I am done with this book I can get the song out of my head.
This book is grim and violent but also stunningly funny. I was so attached to the characters by the end. An excellent audiobook- I did so much laundry today just so I could see how this ended.
I enjoyed this book. Davis was very honest about the highs and lows of hiking the AT as a single woman.
A good, easy to listen to audiobook. Likable characters with a satisfying conclusion.
(Picture is Cape Cod, no Nantucket pics sorry.)
Bad reading day. Had to put one book aside because the violence was too much, got 4% in on the tagged book and realized I had read it, tried to listen to my audiobooks but realized I forgot my ear buds. I hate it when I waste my commutes.
I hadn‘t heard of this series, but my daughter has, and she loves it. We bought one today on a tour of a battlefield.
I loved this book. Most series become repetitive or absurd over time. Louise Penny‘s inspector Gamache series just keeps getting better. (I cried.) If you‘re new to this series start at the beginning!
Louise Penny was great- so funny and interesting. I can‘t wait to get home and read.
For the first fifty pages of this book I didn‘t like the main characters, and wasn‘t sure if I would finish. I kept going because it was an #arc and I wanted to give it a chance. After that the story was so powerful, and the characters‘ journeys were so emotional that I couldn‘t put it down. An engrossing book with a satisfying ending. I can‘t wait to read more by this author.
Halfway through #bfcr3 and I finally hit my 100k step goal! I‘ve been on vacation this week, so those steps came in some pretty amazing places. I‘m still at 2/6 books, but only have 15 minutes left in my current one. Looking forward to getting back to my regular diet next week. I am so sick of eating out, and my fingers are all swollen from the salt. Have a great week everyone!
I really enjoyed this book. It‘s a true story about a series of crimes in Alabama and how they impact the alleged killer, an attorney, and Harper Lee.
I really enjoyed this behind the scenes look at Johnny Cash‘s Folsom Prison album. It‘s a really short Audible Original from a few months ago, and one of the few I‘ve found to be worthwhile.
This book has been unputdownable so far.
I didn‘t make 100,000 steps this week, but I‘m getting closer. We‘re in Colorado this week for hiking, so maybe this is the week. (Although I think I‘m not worrying about my bone health diet this week 😜) 2 books down, four to go!
Delighted with all my #Litsylove and birthday cards this week. Thank you all so much. This is such a great community.
I am so excited. I never go to things like this, but I couldn‘t resist Louise Penny.
I was stuck in my chair for 12 hours today, but fixed that with a whiffle ball game with the kids, and a walk after dinner. I have been switching between Harry Truman and Louise Penny today. Truman to keep my brain active during repetitive work, and Penny for comfort. #litsywalkers #bfcr3
Yesterday I hiked 5 miles and felt like I could have done 5 more. Today I could barely make it on my two mile neighborhood loop. Blame the humidity I guess.
I am loving my re-read of On Writing and feeling sad that it‘s almost over. I also spent some time audiocooking yesterday so I‘ll have plenty of healthy bone strengthening foods on hand for the week.
Round 3 week 1 check in for #BFC
85,000 out of 100,000 steps
Did a decent job with my bone health diet
It was a rotten week at work, so I‘m happy I got as close as I did. Looking forward to crushing that steps goal starting with a hike tomorrow.
