I loved this book. There were a few I wish would have been included (maybe a Bad Girls pt. 2??). This is good for high school aged girls to read. The real stand out was the artwork, amazing!!!

#BFC21 Goals for February:

#BFC21 January check in
Well.... I see areas I can still improve lol
1) drink more water- going good, can still use more at work but I am making a conscious effort at least!
2) Read 5 days a week-I'm just not reading very much right now...Maybe now that I have my book cases up it will spur that on!!
3)Steps goal-needs work, but I knew with the new job I would, so that's OK.

Overall, not great but I know what to work on 😊 @wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Great job! 🙌🏻 You‘re making good progress. 12mo

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs
1) The tagged book. My oldest sister bought me a set of the first three. She's gone so I hold these close.
2) My Sisters Keeper. I love Jodi Picoult, but I read this after the movie came out and I had it stuck in my head that I'd hate it, though I never saw the movie?
3) Another Jodi Picoult, Song of the Humpback Whales. I just couldn't get into it. I'm so glad it wasn't my first book of hers that I read!
@haileybean

Tineke I disliked Songs of the humpback whale too. It was her first book and I could tell. 12mo
Eggs # 1 - how lovely 😘😥 #3 - I was not a fan either 12mo

#BFC21 January goals
1) Drink more water
2) Read at least 5 days a week
3) Hit my daily steps goal at least 3 of the 5 work days (My new job has me sitting much more than I am used to) a week

January is a lot about how to do what I need to at work- because of the masks I don't drink as much water, I'm also sitting a lot more than I used to. Thanks for hosting @wanderinglynn

britt_brooke Great goals! 🙌🏻 13mo
wanderinglynn Great goals! 🎉 13mo
Kshakal Great goals! I found myself not drinking as much water either and I found the solution for me was a straw! 13mo
AprilMae @Kshakal I'll have to try that! We have to keep our food/drinks off the floor so I have to make a conscious effort to leave where I am and go back to where my drink is and take off the mask...it's a hassle. 13mo
Kshakal @AprilMae that does sound like a hassle! Good luck! 13mo
