After struggling through a read I was not enjoying, I‘m finally onto a new book! Happy reading 💕

#friyayintro Thanks @howjessreads 💕

1. Tagged. I am taking way too long to finish this one. Not really hooked! Teen book so perhaps that‘s why?
2. Visiting family and hopefully purchasing our first home (it‘s currently in the works)🤞🏼
3. Yes! 🥚
4. Piper - Not sure why, just love this name! 🤷🏻‍♀️
5. Will do! ❤️

Happy Long Weekend Littens!!

Getting back into my night routine of reading before bed. I have been having better sleeps because of it!

Although a teen book, I‘m finding it to be a fun little read. Carrie still has her wits about her 🌃

1. I think I just did a search in the App Store - was so happy to come across it!
2. Midnight blue hair. I‘m very seriously considering it!
3. Meatloaf. My family never made it!
4. The Nanny, Sister Wives, Reality TV shows (some...and I rarely get to watch them!)
5. The book ‘Darkly Dreaming Dexter‘ + the fact that I tend to have odd dreams 🌚

A good read! Definitely had a twist that I wasn‘t expecting. Enjoyed the writing very much. I felt very connected to the characters.

“How far we will go to make others believe our side of the story.”

It also inspired me to add a ‘total eclipse‘ to my bucket list.

I found this app called “Happy Color” which is a colour by number activity. There are hundreds of images to choose from!

I found it good for anxiety or stress relief. Naturally, I chose a bookish image :) if you look closely, there are some funny book titles including “50 Shades of Meow” and “Men Without Cats” 😂

Tanisha_A I am definitely checking this app out! 3mo

So I tried the ebook version (first ebook) and can‘t do it! I so prefer the weight of a real book: just my preference.

Trying to get a hold of a hard copy but it‘s proven to be difficult! My library said it was “in” but they lost the copy 🤷🏻‍♀️Haven‘t read much these past few days....

Literary_Siren You can get it cheap on ThriftBooks.com or maybe halfpricebooks.com 3mo

The bargain section in Chapters had the sequel to The Carrie Diaries for $5. They didn‘t have the first so got the ebook version (my first ebook ever!)

Decided to read something light after the thriller I just finished!

Boooooks I enjoyed the Carrie diaries I don‘t know if that‘s because I hadn‘t yet watched any of sex and the city to compare it to but they are fun summery reads, hope you enjoy them as well!! 3mo
darklydreaming @Boooooks I am a big fan of SATC but I‘ve heard good things about these too! Glad to hear you enjoyed them 😊 3mo
Boooooks I did end up watch SATC after reading these but I see them as completely separate, just thinking about it‘s making want to do a rewatch if only for Samantha‘s one liners 😂 3mo

Lisa Gardner does it again! I have never been disappointed with her books thus far.

Flora Dane is a victim: Gardner paints a gruesome picture of Flora‘s past. But she is also a survivor. This story is about her journey to live, not only survive.

Vinny sat with (on!) me until I finished. It looks as if he approves too 😊

I‘ve learned something about myself as a reader. I prefer the “marathon” approach rather than the “sprint” to the end. Sure, I can be a fast reader but why rush it?

I have lots of things going on lately but take time to read a few chapters each day. Some days more than others. And this is okay!

I still consider myself a bookworm by my own definition.

SW-T There‘s no right or wrong to reading. Read what you love in the way that works best for you 😊 3mo

Coraline | Neil Gaiman
post image
Pickpick

I love this book! I love Coraline‘s bravery. It‘s quite the imaginative story.

Neil had originally started this story for his daughter but he had other projects on the go. “It was a story, I learned when people began to read it, that children experienced as an adventure, but which gave adults nightmares. It‘s the strangest book I‘ve written, it took the longest time to write, and it‘s the book I‘m proudest of.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Since the library in my neighbourhood is closed today (and I shouldn‘t buy more books!) I am revisiting this one. I first read it years ago!

I love the stop-motion film; one of my favourites! I anticipate this being a quick read 🗝🚪🎪

TheLibrarian This is one Neil Gaiman book I need to read. The movie was wonderful and I absolutely adore Gaiman. 4mo

tournevis About №5, I can do one better. Most Disney animations start as live action musical numbers, ever recently. Hercules, notably. In your particular example, the dancing sequences from SW were repurposed more than once, including especially for Maid Mariam in the Robin Hood with the foxes. 4mo
