The Broken Girls | Simone St James
post image

Another great read from Ms. St. James!! This author never disappoints. The multiple mysteries made the wheels in my head turning in this one. This was a fast read for me but only because the storyline was so well-written and I couldn't wait to know what happens at the end.

Borrowed this from the library. Haven't tried the recipes just yet but there are tons of information on how to heal the body with food and the recipes looks promising.

We drove down to Southern Cal for my sister's graduation, but unfortunately I caught a flu so I'm stuck at the hotel. (I was looking forward in running in a new scenery too ☹)

We live in the coutryside so Chance is not used to seeing so many stores, cars, and people. He's been staring out that window for days lol😁

I have been eager to read this classic for years. I love a good classic especially a gothic ghost story like this one. The beginning started out fine but towards the middle I found my attention to be wavering. Some parts of the writing was confusing and wordy, and I ended up second guessing myself. Nevertheless, I think the plot is open for interpretation.

1. Cardio
2. I like the treadmill and spinner but I'm motivated to work out outdoors because of my dog. If he doesn't get his daily run he chews on my wall, literally. Once I had a hole as big as his head lol.
3. Definitely with music but for safety reasons I'm unable to during my 3AM runs.
4. Running, spinning, pilates, and kickboxing
5. Rather than following a workout routine, I usually create my own.

This is a great book no doubt about it, but somehow I felt a bit uncomfortable while reading it. I don‘t know if I should rate it highly or not because of that. Personally, I think it‘s a matter of principle. I don‘t know if I can do what she did in those circumstances especially how everything turned out. It left me feeling a little raw at the end.

This must be a sign because I've been needing motivation to wake up between 2-3AM for my morning run.
Here are my goals:

-run(spin if weather doesn't permit it) 6hrs/wk
-strength exercise 90min/wk
-cook plant based meals min 3days/wk
(I'm the only plant-based eater in my family so left overs are a norm for me.)

I loved the way the book demonstrates how our view of others can hinder our associations with them. If somebody makes a mistake, does that make them an awful person forever. On the off chance that somebody is reclusive does that mean they are cold or uninterested, maybe they are just hurting inside. I enjoyed this book. Shows how we can be judgmental to others and to ourselves.

4. Pooh Bear, any characters from Hayao Miyazaki movies, and Jack the Ripper (I love gothic stories from that era).
Continued down on the comments👇

nu-bibliophile 5. I don't understand what this question means. Does it mean if I'm okay with trigger warnings? If that's so, I prefer not to know so I can have the full experience when I'm reading a book for the first time.
6. While I read I usually snack on pistachios, plantain chips, raisins, or frozen grapes.
7. I don't normally write on my fiction books only on my non-fiction ones, but I don't mind post-its inside them.
