I‘ve picked up a new hobby! I now make and sell journals in my new Etsy shop. I‘ve been having a blast creating these! I rescue old books that would otherwise be thrown away, gut them, and turn them into something useful! I now get to share my journal love with the world! I just added these two mini notebooks to the shop - and everything is on sale this weekend! Http://pocketmermaidcrafts.etsy.com

valeriegeary So cute! I love journals. Going to check them out now! 2y
pocketmermaid @valeriegeary Yay! My shameless plug worked! 😂 2y

The next book up in my weekend Rainbow Book List binge-athon! I love the cover, and it matches my pretty purple book peeramid. 💜

I‘m moving onto an audiobook for a bit while I make breakfast and do some tidying! Loving this fiercely feminist book about a girl who wants to be a Knight at her medieval reenactment job.

#NoEscape (Volume 3) | Gretchen McNeil
post image

I‘m planning on spending the whole weekend binge-reading for my duties on the Rainbow Book List Committee. I‘m starting off the morning with this mystery/thriller, #noescape. It‘s the latest in the #murdertrending series - but it‘s actually a prequel! I haven‘t read the other two books, but this stands on its own just fine.

LibrarianRyan This was quite fun. I agree it stands on its own and you don‘t need to read the first two. But you should. #murdertrending is such gory fun. 2y
pocketmermaid @LibrarianRyan I‘m planning on it! 2y

Stay Gold | Tobly McSmith

Finished my audiobook and onto another! Just started “Stay Gold,” a coming-of-age love story about a trans boy going stealth at his new school and a cis cheerleader who has sworn off dating. Having a lot of fun with these characters and alternating POVs!

Current audiobook! I‘m really enjoying this original tale of an alternate history where dragons not only EXIST but its totes NORMAL. I had no idea what to expect from this book - and I still don‘t! Hoping to finish it up this morning while doing some chores.

Lindy Enjoy! I‘m on the waiting list for this. Looking forward to it. 2y

Oh my goodness, it has been TWO months since I‘ve updated here! I miss it here. Since I‘ve been working from home, I‘ve taken over my library‘s Instagram account. That has zapped your all of my social media energy. But I‘ll be returning to work this week, and I want to get back into posting on my own accounts! // These are the books I bought for #BlackoutBestsellerList last week. CR “River of Royal Blood” and digging it! 🌪

Just finished this book and my heart is bursting with love! This is a beautiful, magical tale of two princesses in love. Lots of political intrigue, magical powers, shapeshifters, and a dragon! It‘s a sequel, but I think it stands alone pretty well. ❤️

Picked up some cool stuff at the local used bookstore! And whaddaya know, I didn‘t even mean to actually go IN there! 😅 I was just dropping off a box of books, but then felt bad when they told me they were running out of space. I did my best to help them out! 😆

Spending some quiet time this morning with my audio book and my kitty-cat. This book is not what I expected! Caleb is a powerful empath and absorbs other people‘s emotions... which makes high school suck even more. I‘m really enjoying this story!

❤️MY HEART❤️ I‘m adoring listening to this! I saw the show earlier this year and fell in love. My heart is exploding with how adorable and pure and wholesome Emma and Alyssa‘s love is. The novel fleshes out some plot points from the show, and the writing is as endearingly hilarious as the show. But this novel is its own thing. Love love love.

After helping my dad move last week, I‘ve unearthed my old “Griffin & Sabine” collection. I was going to get rid of them, but now I‘m having second thoughts!

marleed Oh I treasure mine. And I‘m missing Alexandria! I just love them time and calmness of taking those letters out of their envelopes. 3y
Wife @Kelican17 Do you have all of these? 3y
Kelican17 @Wife i do not. I am missing The Gryphon and the one at the bottom that I can‘t quite see. 3y

I started this yesterday and was really surprised by how much I enjoyed it! The cover does not do it justice. I‘m excited to settle in and read more of it today. A perfect October read!

TheShaggyShepherd I like the cover but I wish the words were more centered between the side edges lol 3y
pocketmermaid @IvoryLunatic But then it wouldn‘t be centered over the person! 3y
TheShaggyShepherd They could‘ve centered the person too but that wouldn‘t bother me as much. The outline of the book overall stands out more to me 3y

Hey, Littens! After a month of not being able to touch a Tarot deck, I want to kick my practice up a notch. For the month of August, I‘m offering a free daily three-card reading. I‘ll do a personal reading for you and send you a PDF of my interpretation. I have a bunch of slots left at the end of the month, and you can book me here: https://jennamina.youcanbook.me/ Anyone interested? You can also follow my #Tarot Instagram at mystical_mermaidia

julesG I really like this idea. 3y
pocketmermaid @julesG Thanks! Interested? 😇 3y
julesG Just booked a slot. I read the cards myself, but it's definitely nice to have someone else do it from time to time. 3y
pocketmermaid @julesG Yay, thank you! I haven‘t been doing it very long, but the only way to get better is to practice! 3y
Clare-Dragonfly I can‘t resist a free reading! 3y
