Checked my progress on my Goodreads challenge and feeling good about 2019 so far. I had postpartum depression last year and didn‘t read as much as I wanted but I‘m back in the game now!

Texreader So good to hear you are doing so much better 19h
8little_paws Any tips on managing ppd? I am due in 3.5 wks and I am scared I will develop it after the baby. I had pretty bad depression the first half of my pregnancy. 18h
rachelm @8little_paws let your doc know right away. I wish I had. I kept thinking it would sort itself out, but you have to take care of yourself. Also if you have a partner and they can take one of the night feedings, that can really help to get some solid sleep. Sending so much love! 18h

rachelm @Texreader thank you! 18h
8little_paws Thank you! My medical practice is aware of my depression from earlier in the pregnancy. Also I plan on formula feeding right away so we can share the feeding load as the idea of being responsible for all feedings scares me. 18h
Texreader @8little_paws Good luck to you. I like the plans you are making. It‘s so hard, no doubt. Get help, like you are doing. And you have a big support system here on Litsy! 😘 17h

This is the third year I am doing #Booked2019 and I invite you all to join me. It‘s how I reduce my TBR and how I read books I haven‘t heard of and genres outside my wheelhouse. It‘s how the book nerd has FUN. Go to the pages of @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage or @4thhouseontheleft to find how to sign up!

Since it‘s almost the last quarter of the year, I figured I should update my challenges on here:
#mmdchallenge - 12/12 ✅
#readingwomenchallenge: 23/26
#ReadHarderChallenge 21/24
#Booked2019 17/24 (I‘ve been sticking to the schedule so all but one I won‘t start til October).
I was wondering if we think Next Year In Havana counts for Historical Romance by AOC for #readharder, because if so, That one is done too!

ReadingMeagan I think Next Year in Havana totally counts as a historical romance! Well done completing so many challenges! 2mo
ReadingMeagan Have you read any Louise Penny books? MMD says they are cozy mysteries. And the first one takes place in October. It will be a great read for this time of year 😊 2mo
MelissaSue81 @ReadingMeagan - I've not read any Louise Penny. I have one of those Cat Mystery books set aside for that challenge, but perhaps I'll check out Louise Penny too!
2mo
See All 11 Comments
ReadingMeagan @MelissaSue81 I‘ve only read the first two. But I REALLY enjoyed them. They really helped put me into a Fall/Winter mood and be okay with the cold weather coming back. Her writing is really lovely. And I‘m excited to have a new series to read! Good luck with whatever you choose! 2mo
MicheleinPhilly Would you say The Water Dancer is paranormal? Based on the description it seems it might be and I was considering using it for #booked2019 if so. 2mo
MelissaSue81 @MicheleinPhilly - I am literally getting to the paranormal-ish part as we speak. So stay tuned. I'll let you know. 😄 I will say, I'm not an expert on the subtleties of differences between Paranormal, Magical Realism, etc..
2mo
MicheleinPhilly Do you know how many times I have re-read the definition of paranormal in the Goodreads group in order to try to figure out what to read??? DOZENS. It‘s so not my genre. 2mo
Scochrane26 If you still need to do historical romance by aoc, you could use Alyssa cole‘s An Extraordinary Union. I used it last yr for same prompt. 2mo
MelissaSue81 @Scochrane26 - Yeah that seems to be the one everyone uses! It doesn't sound that great to me, but maybe it would be a fast read at least.

2mo
Scochrane26 @MelissaSue81 you could try one of her other books. I also like sherry Thomas (lady Sherlock series). I don‘t read many romance, but after reading lady Sherlock, I went back & read a few of hers. 2mo
MelissaSue81 @MicheleinPhilly - I am now 38% into it and I wasn't sure at first but now I am going to say absolutely yes! And I too, then, will count it for #booked2019 for the last quarter even though I will finish it this month!

I didn't put my results for week 5 and 6. And there is a reason :
Week 5: I didn't run. First 2 days was a bit down. Then on Wednesday went to a concert and the rest of the week went to countryside. I did walk a lot and close all activity rings. this is a picture is from those days.
Week 6: Got sick and was in bed with fever. Now I am better and ready for round 3
The good think is that I read 10 books that is the double than my goal
#BFCr2

wanderinglynn Oh no! So sorry you've been sick! But I'm glad you're feeling better and ready to rock Round 3! 💚 4mo

Another fantastic reading challenge, that I simply couldn‘t pass up! 😍 I came across this last night, and I immediately signed up after looking at all the fun prompts! If you‘re interested in signing up, head on over to @LibrarianRyan profile to file out the form.

#BBRC #ReadingChallenge #BookChallenge

LibrarianRyan Yeahhhhh! 5mo
Clwojick @LibrarianRyan Are we supposed to be completing the sections in order? Or just complete the prompts as we see fit? Also, I tried to get back onto the form to see your notes beside some of the prompts, but since I‘ve already filled it out, I can‘t go back in. 😅 I‘m definitely at a loss for what some of the prompts mean. 5mo
LibrarianRyan @Clwojick I‘ll look and see why you can‘t go back in. But everything is up for your interpretation. Or you can always ask. 5mo

This week our #WeeklyChallenge is very simple. This weekend, sit back, relax, and watch a #BookToMovie adaptation (or multiple if you‘re feeling it 😉). It can be a movie or a tv show. Post what you‘re watching, and remember to tag us!

Happy weekend everyone! And congratulations on almost making it through the first week of #MayMadness challenges! @RadicalReader @Clwojick @TheReadingMermaid

madamereadsalot1 I haven't been following this challenge, but I gotta comment because I'm excited I FINALLY get to watch one of my favorite books! 7mo
Clwojick @madamereadsalot1 You should join us whoever you can! There‘s a new book theme every week, and we post mini challenges that go along with the weekly theme. Next week, which starts tomorrow is “New to You Authors”. If you don‘t want to do all of the themes, you can simply join in whenever something peaks your interest. 7mo
madamereadsalot1 @Clwojick ok! Sounds fun! I'll keep an eye out! 7mo
