Journal entry from 2008. I've always been into the mystery genre, but went through the "Twilight" phase when the series was new & popular, of course. For 13 year old me, the series was "too much of love part" for me (probably would still have the same feeling ?).
I can see I was very opinionated about books back in 2007 too: "I almost fell asleep reading, in fact I dropped the book two time[s]. The book is really boring. It's called Key Lime Mu[r]der. Good thing I'm almost through it." ? On a side note, journaling and reading throughout the years have helped me perfect my spelling and grammar skills ?
I've been stuck in a #ReadingSlump! 😕 I think part of the cause is the stress of starting a new job is just tiring me out. I'm hoping a daily reading checklist will help me get out of this slump 🖒 Any other tips out there?
Oh. My. Goodness. I feel so spoiled - two (!!) Agatha Christie mysteries, a delicious smelling candle, and a fall-colored throw! Thank you so much @quietjenn!! Perfect picks!
And thank you to @cobwebmoth for putting on the #letsgetcozy swap!
Thanks @riversong153 for hosting this #giveaway!
Unfortunately, I cannot choose just one of my favorite mysteries, but my favorite mystery author is #AgathaChristie! I am currently reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and I'm almost finished with the #Poirot series on #Netflix 😦
Homeward. I love living in Pennsylvania. It is such a beautiful state.
I watched #Lion for the third time last night. I started the book at the beginning of the weekend and I'm about halfway through it now. I LOVE the movie (bawl every time); so far I like the book better than the movie because there's added details that the movie leaves out and doesn't have all the movie "fluff."

I'm about 3/4 through the #SimpleThingsBook now, but Chapter 2 (titled "Zoey") focuses on how the author got her dog. It's a great story for any animal lover and made me want to cuddle up with my #beagle since she's visiting #DogsofLitsy

"I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I'm afraid of succeeding at things that don't matter." - Bob Goff
I really enjoyed our #BuddyBuddyBookClub chapter 1-4 discussion. So far, the book is interesting and full of great stories of Bob Goff's life. It also makes me think about my life and how I'm living it. I can't wait to read more and for our next discussion @Rachael5248

I found this tag while going through the #lotrchapteraday tag and thought it looked fun! This #wouldyourather tag was created by @beachbookworm7
🐾Hardback or paperback? Paperback
🐾Only read new books or the same old book? New books
🐾Only buy your own books or loan from the library? Buy
🐾Have all your books with movie tie-in covers or every cover the same? Every cover the same

#MrsMcGintysDead by #AgathaChristie is a #Pick! Though I wasn't clever enough to solve the murder mystery, it had plenty of twists and clues throughout the book that kept me up for many late night readings. I definitely recommend if you are into #Mystery / #Detective books! Now I want to watch #HerculePoirot 🔎
