Went to the library today and picked up these beauties 📚✨ Now I just have to decide which one to read first 😬

#amreading #currentlyreading #TBR

BookBosomed1 I loooooved Once There Were Wolves. I wish I could read it for the first time again. It does contain heavy issues, so reader be aware. (edited) 1w
Chelsea.Poole I‘m with @BookBosomed1 — LOVED Wolves, and also really enjoyed Unlikely Animals…haven‘t read the other. But nice stack! 😊 1w

I devoured this book! In my BOTM review, I compared it to a plate of French fries (impossible to consume slowly). I highly recommend it for folks who like mysteries and magical realism ✨

Bklover Haven‘t seen you here in a while! Just saw you have a new book, which I‘ll be reading soon. Congratulations to you!!❤️ 1mo
ruthemmielang @Bklover thank you!! Yes, I haven‘t been reading much since I had a baby but thankfully that‘s starting to change 😄 1mo
Bklover Congratulations on your baby too - enjoy every minute! 1mo

I have a confession to make. I took a vacation from reading for a couple of months. 😳 I can‘t remember the last time I didn‘t read at least once a day. I‘m not sure why, but I think I just needed to step away for a bit so I could remember why I loved reading in the first place.

Anyway, I‘m finally back on the saddle and have just started this book that everyone is talking about! Have any of you guys ever taken a reading vacation?

BookishBlonde12 Oh yes, last year. I suffered from a major book hangover and just couldn‘t bring myself to read for a month or two. Once I started to read again I remembered how much I loved getting lost in the pages of my book. 📚 💕 5y
DivineDiana Glad you‘re back! 5y
Samplergal Yes. I didn‘t read for about three years after my dad died. I stopped knitting too. I didn‘t have the attention span for either. 5y

Periwinkle I stopped reading when i started having kids 😂 but now that they are not babies anymore, I have a little bit of me time and I spend it reading 😊 Welcome back!!! 💕 5y
Crewgurl I did. After my mom died I couldn‘t get past the part in a book where any conflict occurred (you know, the plot). So I took a break and then reread some favorites because I knew the ending, so it was much easier to get through. 5y
CouronneDhiver I‘ve been on hiatus before ... sometimes you just need a break! 😊 5y
ThatBookishGal I‘ve done that. Never longer than maybe...3 weeks. Sometimes u just need a break 😊 5y
Dogearedcopy My longest break was *nine months*! I had been churning through titles when all of the sudden I just could not read one more word. I went to see a lot of movies, plays, and hiked a lot with the dogs. It‘s like my brain needed to reset! 5y
haileybean Sometimes a break is needed :) 5y

The last three years have been crazy for me and not just because of my publishing journey. ✨This time two years ago, I could barely walk due to a series of chronic health issues. My goals in the months and years that followed were two-fold: 1. Publish my book and 2. Climb a mountain. I‘m happy to say that this month, I did both. Anyway, this is just a long way to say thanks to a lot of people. Thanks for helping me climb my mountains. 💙🏔✨

bookloo @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Good idea (and what an awesome day to be born)!!! 😉 5y
LibrarianRyan I did like this book, but it gets really dry in the middle. 5y
MeganAnn One of my all time favorite series and it's just perfect for this time of year!! 🎃🍁 I'm rereading it in real time (on the days the events happen in the book) right now. When you finish, you are definitely going to want to have the next two books in the series on hand. Then check out the author's Facebook page and website for lots of extras (there are spoilers so wait until you finish reading)! 😊 5y
tapgurl @LibrarianRyan I agree. It was a dnf for me. 5y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @MeganAnn great!!! Thank you! This is definitely out of my usual genre, but I‘m looking forward to it!!!🎃👻 5y
LibrarianRyan @tapgurl I might have DNF if I had not been reading it for a book club. 5y
TheLondonBookworm What an amazing pumpkin!!!! 5y
Hooked_on_books The pumpkin with the leaves is marvelous 5y
LauraBrook I really enjoyed this one, and I'd love a house like Diana's Aunt! Happy reading! 5y
BibliOphelia Loved this series! Tons of wonderful detail to wallow in, with a plot and characters that pull you right along - best of both worlds! 5y
ruthemmielang @monkeygirlsmama @TheLondonBookworm @Hooked_on_books Thanks! I got it at a flea market a few years ago and I bust it out every fall 🎃 5y
TricksyTails This book keeps popping up! I guess it's a sign that I should read it. 5y
ruthemmielang @TricksyTails That was my thinking, too 😊✨ 5y

This morning's haul at the farmer's market (minus the book 😉). I wish there were such a thing as a farmer's market with book vendors so you could buy fresh veggies AND books in one trip!

peaknit This book is so different but so good. 5y
Tamra Wouldn't that be spectacular! 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Oh that would be awesome 5y

I couldn't let an opportunity like this pass me by. This candle not only has an awesome name (and thematically complements my book), but it also smells like a forest! 🌲🐺 I can't wait to light it up and while working on my next novel! .

#bookishgoodies #bookstagram #candles

Reecaspieces I can't wait to read your next book!! HURRY UP!! 😂 5y
ruthemmielang Haha I'm working on it! Maybe if I didn't spend so much time on Litsy, I'd get more done 😋 @Reecaspieces 5y

Cocoa ☕️
Corn Maze 🌽
Bonfire 🔥 (because bonfires are just about my favorite thing ANY time of year)
No football 🏈 (says the girl who lives in Buckeye country)


TongueTiedSLP11 Nice! 👍🏻 5y
TongueTiedSLP11 P.S. How do you get the image? I cannot for the life of me figure it out. 5y
ruthemmielang @TongueTiedSLP11 I just took a screen shot and cropped it. There's probably an easier way but that's how I did it 5y
TongueTiedSLP11 @ruthemmielang Thank you! That's what I was thinking. 5y
