#BookReport #Week3 OK so ... I finished The Overstory 5⭐️.
I Read Ghost Wall - I didn‘t really like it. So-So.
I DNF Black Diamond Fall ... after a great start , I lost interest.
I tried a couple of samples on my kindle ... 🤷🏼‍♀️meh
I am now reading The Dutch House ... so far so good 🤞🏻🤞🏻I really couldn‘t decide if I would listen to the lovely Tom Hanks on audio .. but I prefer to read myself , so that‘s what I‘m doing 👍🏻❤️

#BookReport #Week3
Glad I waited until end of the day because I finished a 5th book!!! Plainsong was a #OneSittingRead and 5 HEARTFELT stars
Speak No Evil - contemporary fiction/ very good I already posted reviews on other 3 books, LOVED both #NF (both audio)
Three bails this week, annoyed because I wasted 2/5 loans from Hoopla. Gods is probably great but not on audio. The Holdout is an #ARC #NetGalley 👎🏼 Just started Like Dreamers, #NF 👍🏻

Cinfhen I went from being a #StarScrooge to a #StarSlut overnight @erzascarletbookgasm 4w

No soda - zero soda 🎉
Meditation- 4x this week 🎉
Exercise - eh I did a few moves but not what I would call a workout at all

1. I cheated a bit & took a screenshot of Hook‘s hook.
2. I have two & that was narrowing it down.
3. I have actually written two fan fictions, that I will hopefully be posting somewhere soon. I am working through my nerves about sharing my work.
4. Of course my poem was about Harry, lol!
5. I wanted more classes with villains, but my mind was blanking.

#BFCR3 #week3 | My 5 year old missed school one day for an ear infection so I blame that for missing my step goal ... but, overall, it was a great week, though! I got in back-to-back spin classes on Friday (in addition to a class on Wednesday) so my cycling miles were really high.

📖 6 (13/20)
🚴🏻‍♀️ 48/30 miles
💪🏻 2/3
🥵 2/2 (run 1x, stairclimber 1x)
👣 79,983/85k

Keep up the fantastic work #TeamLetsDoThis ‼️

jb72 Awesome job! 🎉🎊😁 4mo

CocoReads Great job! Hope your little is feeling better. Ear infections are awful! 4mo
britt_brooke @CocoReads Thank you 💚 - he‘s his regular, goofball self now. 😄 A round of antibiotics got him right back on track. Luckily he only missed one day of school. Such a little trooper! 4mo
Moony 👏 great job! The Raven Comic looks good! It's an series, isn't it? 4mo
julesG Great week! You made up your missed steps with cycling miles. Glad your little one is feeling better. 4mo
CaroPi I admire that despite having a sick kid you manage to do such an amazing progress 4mo
britt_brooke @Moony Thanks! Yes, the Raven is a volume 1 (issues 1-6) of a series. It was pretty good, but I don‘t know if I‘ll read volume 2. 4mo
britt_brooke @julesG Thank you! 🤗 4mo

#BFCR2 #week3 | It was a pretty fantastic week! My sons have been on my nerves with their constant bickering, so I did my best to relieve the stress at our gym while they played in childcare (in separate classes, amen). Five books was a lot for me, though 3 were pretty short.

📖📱🎧 5
🚴🏻‍♀️ 2x, total 28.3mi
💪🏻 2x
🥵 other cardio (9 miles run walk alternation, Jacob‘s Ladder 1000ft, Row 1000m, stairclimber 2x)
👣 over 10k 6 days

Freespirit That's fantastic...reading wise and fitness👍🏻 5mo

britt_brooke @CocoReads Thanks, Colleen! 🙌🏻 5mo
SauerPatch This inspires me! How old are your boys? I‘m a mom of two boys nowadays myself, so I need all the tips I can get. 😄 5mo
britt_brooke @SauerPatch You are too kind - thank you! 🥰 My boys are 7 and 5. They are best buds, but argue constantly lately. They are also very physical, but I‘m told this is a boy thing. 😆 How old are your little guys? 5mo
SauerPatch Mine are 3 & 9mo. So there‘s no arguing per se, but there is a lot of selfish taking of toys and fussing to be held, so I kind of relate! 🤪 5mo
britt_brooke @SauerPatch Also, I‘m not sure I have any good tips beyond, always take some “me time.” It‘s hard to achieve some days, but it‘s so important. 5mo
britt_brooke @SauerPatch Aw! I miss mine being smaller. 💚💚 5mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 A fantastic week! 🎉 5mo
sprainedbrain Great week! 🙌🏻 5mo
julesG ???? Truly inspirational! It's so important to take "me time", especially with kids. Mine can start a fight over anything these days. (boy nearly 14, girl 9) ? 5mo
britt_brooke @wanderinglynn Thanks! 🙌🏻 5mo
britt_brooke @sprainedbrain Thank you! 🙌🏻 5mo
britt_brooke @julesG You are too kind - thank you! 🙌🏻 I‘m sure to take some “me time” every single day. If I don‘t, I‘ll go nuts. And my kids are the same way. They‘re playing really nice this morning, so let‘s hope that continues! 😆🤞🏻 5mo
imabusybee On fire💜👏🏻🙌🏼 5mo

This was a challenging week for me. Fitness Tracker bonked out so I just walked daily, read daily... and figuratively took “the next right step” without having the supporting data. C‘est la vie! No goal changes this next week. I‘m excited to see how hiking in the mountains influences my #BFC #BFCr2 ! #week3


Ash.on.the.line That almost sounds freeing in a way lol! 😅 great job for just keep going on! 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Ash.on.the.line it kinda is now that you mention it! Thanks for the encouragement! 🤗 5mo
Crazeedi Great job!👏👏 5mo
wanderinglynn Sounds like a great week! 🙌🏻 Sometimes it‘s nice not to be “tied” to an electronic gadget. Have an amazing time in the mountains! 5mo

Time for Love | Marie Force

Just can‘t get enough of Gansett Island this summer! After being kind of a tool in book 2, Dr. David has been working on redeeming himself and regaining some respect in the eyes of the McCarthy family. He used to be engaged to only daughter Janey, but she caught him cheating and went on to find her happy ever after with Joe. 👇

CocoReads In this book David finally forgives himself, helps Daisy move on from her abusive ex (that actually was part of the set up from the previous book) and David and Daisy fall in love. Oh, and when Janey develops a medical condition putting her and her unborn baby‘s life at risk, David saves the day-totally earning his redemption. We check in on other favorite characters and the set up for book 10 happens. #bfcr2 #week3 @wanderinglynn 5mo
imabusybee Dang girl 🙌🏼💜 5mo

CocoReads They‘re real short and I didn‘t work for 2 days. The weather was awful yesterday and although today was sunny, it was too hot to do much. So I read a lot. 5mo
britt_brooke You are burning through books. I love it! 5mo
julesG 👏👏👏 Short or long, doesn't matter. 5mo
