Sorry I've been so MIA. Life has been hectic and I've been mostly exhausted. End of the school year reporting is murder. 🔪

"I am still afraid. But I am not terrified. And I am not alone."

It's rare a book makes me cry over the little things. But here it is. This hits home. #anxiety #depression #mentalillness

We've had an unexpected cold snap. In May. It's usually boiling hot already so I'm going to take the opportunity to read this wintery read before I go back to skin melting temperatures. 💁🏻

So, this little cutie has been wandering around my office building for a few weeks. But, this week, I finally caught someone outside the apartments where she hangs out and confirmed she was a stray. She's about 10-12 weeks old, super sweet, extremely quiet and I'm calling her Ziva. ☺️🐾

I can't even wait to take a nice photo of the book. This was so NICE and lovely to read. Right up my alley regarding early childhood development and psychology, too. Just 👌🏻 perfect read for me. ❤

I read this and Prose & Cons out of order because I couldn't find this one to read first and I still really enjoyed this book despite kind of knowing what was going to happen. The author does a good job of maintaining the intrigue.

Took an extra day off on this already long weekend so I could tackle a massive around-the-house to do list and then I woke up with a cold one day into my time off. So, I'm finally getting some quality time with this book because I don't feel like much else. Sara hasn't left my side. 💕 #SickDay #CozyMystery

Interesting. Lengthy, it seemed (on audio) but so worth the details. I wouldn't say this was actually scary by any means, though.

Okay, this was great! Maybe it's because it's full of Southernisms or maybe it's just a perk to an interesting storyline but I enjoyed it immensely.

I don't think I can finish this. 🙅🏻 The guy is so possessive early on and it's not cute. It's creepy. If this were happening in real life a girl would be hauling ass in the other direction. It might get better. But, I've got a million other things on my TBR. This will be going to the Little Free Library.

About half-way through this audiobook, and while it's not remotely like the kind of romance I was looking for... it's still pretty good. Some parts have me like 😳😧🙈, though.

Can anyone recommend some light romance? I'm expanding my reading horizons but reading graphic depictions of steamy things or heavy foul language isn't really for me. Any suggestions? #recommendsomething #romance #romantsy

annahenke Susannah Kearsley is one of my favorites, and her books are not too steamy. 3y
annahenke Also, if you don't mind Christian fiction, try Becky wade, Julie Klassen, or Jane Kirkpatrick 3y

mischa Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie is my go-to recommendation. It's also one of my comfort reread. 3y
EloisaJames How about Susan E Phillips, It had to be you or any other one. Kristan Higgins is also really romantic with little or no sex. 3y
mostlycatsandcoffee @EloisaJames Thanks so much! I'm not totally against it but prefer it tastefully done! Haha 3y
