Crossed off another goal for #SuperSeptember

Was kind of disappointed with this one 🌟 2.5/5

My goals for the #readathon are:
◇Finish Humans of New York ✅️
◇Finish Fahrenheit 451 ✅️
◇Finish Cerulean Sea 🙄🥴 (a year+ later)
◇Start and finish 1984
◇Make progress in The Goblet of Fire Illustrated

kbibliophilific I have but haven‘t read yet. Somehow it was never a required HS reading that most ppl seemed to have already read. 2w
Alora @kbibliophilific Same! I had the option between 5 or so different books. This was one of them but surprisingly I didnt pick it. I chose A Clockwork Orange. Oh boy lol 😆 2w
TheHungryBookworms I enjoyed it. Hated the movie though. Book was pretty good to me 2w

Alora @TheHungryBookworms I've heard the movie wasn't the best. I liked the idea of the book but I couldn't get into it lol. 2w
TheHungryBookworms @Alora it happens. I dislike some books my friends love and they look at me like i was broken. Lol. But i live that we are all different and we dont all like the same things. That would be boring 2w
Alora @TheHungryBookworms Yes I definitely agree! There's been some popular books that people are all hyped about and I couldn't get into it. And others I loved that had mixed reviews. 2w
Andrew65 A true classic. Well done 👏👏👏 2w

Here is my tattoo for my grandma.

Everything in this piece represents something special. The flowers surrounding are her & my moms birth month flowers - Violet, Primrose, Iris.

The handwriting is from a recent birthday card.

And the feather and marsh flower is from my favourite book that she read and likes too...Where The Crawdads Sing.

My grandma is one of the most important and influential people in my life.

We found out some news that has been weighing heavy on my heart the past few days.

We share a love for books so I wanted to share with my Litsy community what I'm doing for her.

Tonight I'm getting a bookish tattoo that has a lot of meaning in it. It will incorporate my favourite book that we read together, Crawdads 💜 🪶

I will share the final result tonight.

HAPPY NEW YEAR LITTENS!!! 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣2️⃣ 🥳🎉

Today marks my 1 year anniversary of being clean and sober! It is surreal to say I haven't had a sip of alcohol or touched hard drugs in over a year now!

After my dad passed away I became severely depressed and turned to alcohol and drugs to cope with my grief.

During my recovery books have helped me tremendously. I love getting lost in a good book.

I wish you all health and happiness for 2022 💜

AmyG Happy New Year! And congrats...not easy to do but what a wonderful accomplishment! 👊🏻🙌🏻🎉 (edited) 9mo

Alora @FantasyChick Haha that's awesome!! I just started about 4 months ago or so. Just started my first diamond art club one. It's going to take forever lol 😆 Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I'll be sure to show you the picture when it's done! 🥰 9mo
Alora @FantasyChick I am using the scentsy ... mixed the two together like you said!! Omg!!! So yummy! 🤤 First time mixing them but I've heard people do it and some turn out amazing! 9mo

SRWCF @Alora I might be a tad bit older than you because what you describe in the world of stickers sounds so futuristic! 🤣🤣 I am dating myself here, but I collected stickers over 40 years ago. (Yes, they had stickers way back then! 😉) 9mo

I‘m a little late posting my review for Verity and time for #MarvelousMarch
Better late than never 😂

I read for about 5-6 hours and finished Verity!
I loved this book! I had to take deep breathes at points, my nerves were so high!
I‘ve never read a good thriller before...so this was a nice treat!

I was surprised the twist & ending wasn‘t a bit better...
I predicted about 2-3 major events
However I still really enjoyed this read!

📖 Book Review 📖 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5

This was a pretty good short story! I loved how Rowling included illustrations from children around the world.
The short chapters were nice and made for an easy read - great for kids!
The ending was wrapped together nicely and overall was a good read!

Just finished this book and watched the movie for the first time!
I loved both of them!
The few changes to the movie didn‘t take away from the book in my opinion!
It was very well made and followed the book very well!
I can always see King‘s writing so vividly in my mind while I‘m reading his books!

#JoyousJanuary #readathon #tbr

Thank you for hosting @Andrew65

I always make unrealistic goals and never meet them
So I‘m going to try and make one I can actually meet 🤣
I‘ve been in a reading slump for a while now #slumpathon

Hoping these books get me out of it!
Finishing up Ickabog, then starting Rita Hayworth and The Stand!!
I‘ve never even seen the movies...so I‘m very excited to read them!

Goals:
Finish Ickabog & Rita
25 hours

Andrew65 Good luck 😊👍 2y

I‘ve been reading this lighter read and loving it!
I love how short the chapters are and all of the illustrations from kids worldwide!
About half way done so far

I can‘t wait to read this to my kids one day! 🥰

Relaxing for the most part today because tomorrow....
I start my NEW JOB!! My first real professional job closer to my field of study!!
I got a job as an office administrator for a medium size accounting firm!

TheKidUpstairs Congrats on the new job! That's amazing. I hope your first day goes well 💗 2y

I read 14 books in 2020!
I know this isn‘t a lot to some, but to me it is 😁🤣
I improved from 2019 and read a few more books

All of the books I read were 4+ stars!
My favourite was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo!
This is my all time favourite, along with Where The Crawdads Sing which I read in 2019

My goal for 2021 is 25 books (some are huge on my tbr too!) 😳😰
