I took a walk around the block and was immediately put in kitty jail on my return. While serving my time I finished Toni Sarnicola (nom de plume Jenna Jacobs) debut. The collection of horror short stories are good except for the CW of animal cruelty in Funeral for Birds. Also checked off for #20in4 are the traditional and retelling of Aladdin.

Tagged book wasn‘t planned on being part of #20in4. Since I had Thursday off I figured I do some warm up reading aaaaand I had a deja book moment. Apparently I read this one before? I don‘t recall much of this book except Strawberry Spring, Jerusalem‘s Lot, Last Rung on the Ladder, and of course Children of the Corn.

I was thrilled to see tagged book be released as an audiobook and I‘m finally getting around to listening to the Libro.fm I bought months ago. I tried so many times to read print version only to give up because how meticulous Hutton is with his research of modern Paganism.
Pistachio on the other hand was not as delighted as I was and immediately fell back asleep once I stopped annoying him to pose for a pic. #catsoflitsy

I‘m going to be on hiatus from litsy while I go through the nightmare process of not renewing my lease at current apartment and submitting applications in search of a new one. I had hopes hearing from one management approving my app, but now I‘m on pins & needles as it‘s been 5 days since I‘ve heard from anybody. I‘m giving them until Wednesday to contact me before I begin another search. Or maybe drink the tallest glass of wine to calm my nerves.
