I've been under so much stress recently, I can't remember the last time I've reached this stress level, if I have ever reached it. So yeah, I really feel that my life has been an accumulation of anguish, especially in the past few months. 😨 #stressed #serialreader

Nute If there‘s any way to take a tiny moment in time to focus inward and take five deep breaths daily then do so. Things can get tough in the outside world. Find your inner peace. Sending positive energy. {{{HUGS}}} 4mo
zezeki @Nute Thanks, it's a good advice. 😳 4mo
Liz_M Ooh no! I hope you get through this tough time and life becomes easier soon! 4mo

When things happen and you become way more stressed than you were expecting to be today. Hopefully with some down time at work I can read and get my nerves under control

It's been a crazy couple days. Broken furnace and burst pipes in the rental house so we have been cleaning and sopping up water...in the freezing cold. Water's off but lots of work to do in the next few weeks so I decided to take tonight and get myself a treat. I absolutely am fascinated by cults and Warren Jeffs is one person I haven't read about yet. Looking forward to spending a quiet night before we get back at it tomorrow. #stressed #renotime

Melissa_J Man, that sucks! I hope the renos are quick! 2y
FantasyChick @Melissa_J Me too! I figure we will do most of the work ourselves to save money but I see a For Sale sign in the future lol 2y

Decision made: it was open at the library and I grabbed it! I was on the fence anyway. #botm #botmchallenge

Reviewsbylola It's a sign. 2y
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola Yes it is. I'm on the library side of the fence, which means I can freeze one account!! 🎉🎉 2y
emilyhaldi Can't wait to hear what you think!! 2y

Megabooks @emilyhaldi I may start it tonight, but I probably won't finish until the weekend. My eyes can only take so much screen time, and I get enough at work. I am so curious, though!!!!! 2y
Cinfhen Yay!!! You can be our official reviewer!!!! 2y
Megabooks Okay, so I couldn't wait. I read the first chapter, 8% in. It is definitely a character study with edgy aspects. The going back and forth between present tense and the past tense is a bit annoying, but the characters are being introduced, so I'm cutting her some slack for now. The characters are interesting, but at times it's a little "10 examples of Jamey as a golden boy". Has potential, but I'm not immediately impressed. 2y
Megabooks @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @L_auren I put my thoughts on the first chapter in a spoiler tag above. There are no actual spoilers other than if you don't want to know my first impression. 👍🏻 2y
Reviewsbylola I read a bit of the sample and I'm still undecided. It will likely all depend on my mood tomorrow night tbh. 😂 I am definitely not getting June and I definitely am getting Evelyn Hugo but the other three are a big toss up! 2y
L_auren @Booksandcooks thanks!! I'm interested... 2y
Megabooks @L_auren the more I think about it, the more I'm excited to pick it back up! 2y
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola I felt the same way!! Finding this at the library was, as you said, a sign. I'm probably getting everything but June and this. I just can't do YA right now. 2y
L_auren @Booksandcooks @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @Cinfhen BOTM just posted a David Sedaris book. Was I wrong?? #stressed 2y
L_auren Oh it's an add-on. Sleuthing ain't easy 2y
Megabooks @L_auren Yeah, I have it checked out from the library as an audiobook now. It's interesting, especially if you're a big Sedaris fan since it lays out his life in chronological order. I think it might be better written than audio, which is the opposite of most of his books, FWIW. 2y
Cinfhen First chapter has potential...have you read more since you last posted? My 7 hr time difference is sooooo annoying!!! 2y
Megabooks @Cinfhen Yes, I'm halfway done! I'm liking it more the more I read! Hope this helps! (edited) 2y
Cinfhen I'm happy you're enjoying, but I'm going library & I think I'm only choosing one book and freezing my other account this month 2y
Megabooks @Cinfhen That's probably a good idea. I wouldn't have been upset if I had bought this, but I'm happy that I got it from the library. I'm definitely going to get the TJR and Chemistry maybe the chase sisters. Definitely freezing one account. I have a free book in my main account, so I'll definitely get the two I'm most interested in. 👍🏻 and definite 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 for your self control!! 2y
Cinfhen I just saw @Reviewsbylola post with the luggage tag...so now I'm not skipping anything 🙊I suck at willpower 2y
Reviewsbylola 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 wow a luggage tag is what won you. That's great! @Cinfhen 2y
Cinfhen Hahahahaha just like "free" shipping gets me every time @Reviewsbylola I'm so pathetic! 2y
Megabooks @Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola free'll get ya every time! 😂🤣😂🤣 If this hadn't been immediately ready at the library, I probably would have bought it. BOTM definitely has us pegged! 2y
Lola @Cinfhen I always get annoyed when I skip a month and then learn that I missed an extra goodie. STILL bitter that I missed the wine glass koozie a few months ago 😂😂 2y
Cinfhen Hi @Lola ????feel like I haven't seen u much...hope all is well! And yeah, I lost my wine koozie & accused every family member of "stealing" it ? 2y
Lola @Cinfhen I'm here :) I've had a few post-less days but I also feel I'm missing many posts from my core Littens! Glad I found you in the #botm thread! 😘 2y

I was so overwhelmed on where to start to recover my living room from the Christmas explosion that I decided to just sit down and read. The hubs said it was probably a good idea because even he could tell I was getting majorly stressed out. I got to read for over an hour and about 75pages. Not a bad start to the new year, especially since i want to try to read everyday this year.


MarriedtoMrT The cleanup can be so overwhelming! I'm doing a little bit at a time which means it probably won't be done until March. 3y
QuoteQueen @MarriedtoMrT OMG, right?!? I'm like, "where the f am I going to put all this stuff?!?!?" Our plan is to get rid of some old stuff, organize our bookshelves, get a new bookshelf and canvas totes, then really hit the mess. But I couldn't do any of that today. I did manage to clean off the kitchen table, but after that I was at a loss and gave up. ? It's killing me though. Clearly I need to read more. ? 3y
QuoteQueen Oh! I've been doing laundry for days AND loaded the dishwasher twice so there's that. (Tricking my stress to calm down by listing what I have accomplished haha). 3y

EliNeedsMoreShelves @Book_Addict it's a great finale to the series. 3y
minkyb @EliNeedsMoreShelves I am only about 1/4 of the way in. Compared to most on Litsy I am a VERY slow reader! 3y
