The Exhibitionist | Charlotte Mendelson
post image

Why do people keep putting holds on my library books? 😑 I haven't even had this all that long. 😇 (Ok, to be fair I have done the same to others 😅 and not being able to renew a book is frequently what it takes for me to get around to reading it 🤪)
So. Emergency reading of The Exhibitionist this weekend.
(Think maybe I'll get through the 2022 Women's Prize longlist before the 2023 one is announced? 😆 #readinggoals )

squirrelbrain I really liked this one. It‘s full of nasty people though, but written really well! 7d
Leniverse @squirrelbrain Yeah, no kidding. I'm only 30 pages in and I already detest everyone! 😆 7d
Ruthiella I‘ve certainly also been in that position where I have to finish a book quickly because someone else wants it and I can‘t renew! 😂 7d

Hello! It‘s been a while but I am back and excited for the new year. This year my New Years resolution is to read every morning with my coffee before starting my day hopefully this will help me be able to reach my goal of 35 books this year. I will be documenting and reviewing all the books I am reading so stick around! ❤️ #newyear #readinggoals

This was a great kickoff to the year! Two 5⭐️ books already, Plainsong and Night Watchman, and both from challenges, which is why I do them! 🤩 My other two #ALSpine reads, Bell Jar and Ghosts, were great also. I made my #roll100 goal of one each from print and audio even though they weren‘t fantastic. (Climbing Mount TBR one book at a time!) Babel is a new fave from the #tob, but Age of Vice was a bust. Review of Drinking Games soon. #BookReport

Megabooks @Reggie thanks! 🥰 I just really enjoy the escape books provide. 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB @squirrelbrain I know I owe you three lovely ladies each an email, but I am struggling atm. Whatever is wrong with me has flared and I am sick, in pain, and exhausted. I can‘t even walk Molly further than the yard today. Just wanted to let you know why I‘ve been silent. 💜🫶🏻💕 2w
BarbaraBB I am so sorry to hear that. I was wondering indeed, missing your sparkling presence. You‘ve got so much to deal with, take care of yourself for once too. Sending love and strength ❤️❤️❤️ 2w
Megabooks @BarbaraBB thanks 💜 it always seems the “have to‘s” exhaust me so much the only “want to” I can do is reading. Even then I catch myself falling asleep or staring into space. I appreciate your support so much! 💕 2w
Cinfhen I‘m so sorry to hear what‘s going on with you. This time of year is always difficult and you have a lot of responsibilities on your plate. Rest, self care and reading are all wonderful 😘 Sending love 💕 2w
Megabooks @Cinfhen thanks for being an understanding friend. 💕💕 I‘m headed to the podiatrist this morning to get my foot looked at. I started music therapy yesterday and it seems to be going well. I hope you have more energy since the iron infusion, but I know it takes a couple of weeks for full effect. 😘😘 2w

Always fashionably late to the best Litsy parties in town 😉🥳🍾🥂

Be prepared to see plenty of catch up posts from yours truly for beginning of the year reading plans that I procrastinated on because I a) was too overwhelmed by all the fabulous options and b) let the pursuit of general holiday coziness take over my life. Planning kinda went out the window. I regret nothing. 😁🤩 More to come!

My first book of 2022 was my fav of the year! Heard good things about this tagged thriller coming out in March 2023. For #serieslove2023 I hope to get to the next book in a whole bunch of series I‘m in the middle of. #readinggoals #newyearnewbooks

Setting Goals | John Renesch

As the year closes and a new one opens its doors I've started to think of what I want in 2023.

For my #ReadingGoals I hope to focus more on quality instead of quantity. I am not aiming for a number but more for what speaks to me. I still plan to participate in challenges but I will be more low-key and not stress over it. This past year I haven't enjoyed reading as much as usual and I want to get that feeling back 😁

FantasyChick My #personalgoal is to learn to take a step back. Focus more on what I need rather than what needs to be done. By making time for myself every day instead of working myself to exhaution I hope to improve my mood and general mental state. This week has shown me that it's not the end of the world if things wait. I'm not planning to become a hoarder, but it IS ok to not put the supper away before everyone has finished 🤣 4w
Deblovestoread Sounds like a perfect way to start off the new year! 4w
SamAnne I‘m on a similar page. 4w

I can‘t believe it‘s the end of the year already, ugh. I don‘t think my goals change much each year but in 2023, I definitely need to double down on finishing the 20+ books I have half-read. And since I‘ve been kinda MIA and haven‘t logged/reviewed much in 2022, I need to spend time updating StoryGraph, Litsy, etc. with what books I‘ve read. #readinggoals
