I got kicked in the teeth with some sinus respiratory combo at 11p Monday night 😂 Wes usually gets a half hour of books a night but I could only breathe through one until tonight. So every night he‘s been “reading” to me to make me feel better ❤️

TheBookHippie Awe. I hope you feel better soon! It lasted here two weeks 😵‍💫😫 15h

Easily my least favorite, though still a pick. You can tell this is where he got popular and let the story start to wander. #readingwesteros resumes 6/14!

We‘re in vacation in Canada (with the munchkin 🙃) so I‘m a bit late.

2- oof- idk. I grew up a reader so most of my formative phases were much younger.
3- Potter, Twilight, or Princess diaries

This was absolutely zany and not at all what I thought I was getting. It read really fast for the length, but could easily have been shortened. Very formulaic, but engaging. Not bad. #lmpbc

This came highly suggested in a Google search. While I‘ve reconnected with my faith, That wasn‘t the draw. Just trying to learn to be a more present, less anxious and triggered mom. Just out here trying to break generational trauma- no easy task. This was honestly only ok. Pretty mediocre as parenting books go.

Avanders There‘s this book re breaking generational trauma I was looking at… have you read it? 2mo
BethM @Avanders I have not, but The body keeps the score has been referenced in a lot of my trauma informed trainings. 2mo
Avanders Yes that‘s another one — I have it in the house somewhere but haven‘t read it yet either… 2mo

1- both, though if I can wait for paperback I will just bc of cost.
2- always fiction
3-either just no WW2
4- recent, I usually find “classics” boring.
5- coffee in the am, tea whenever
6- both though I tend toward physical
7- both, I need to be surrounded by books

Was able to score 21 of the 38 from a thrift shop while on home visits today. Sadly my childhood faves: rainbow and thunder/lightning aren‘t here and my set was ruined in my parents basement.

Saw this recommended a bunch. Engaging and pretty solid.

MaureenMc I haven‘t read this one yet but it‘s on my shelf. 3mo
BethM @MaureenMc it definitely held my attention. I was raised Catholic and left, but am now coming back to my faith. Until recently I‘d never experienced anti Catholic sentiment so this perspective really captivated me. 3mo
MaureenMc @BethM I‘ve read Hahn‘s The Lamb‘s Supper & would recommend it. It seems that many of the current “famous” Catholics are converts who grew up with, or were at least surrounded by, anti-Catholic beliefs. I find their stories quite fascinating, actually. Godspeed on your journey. ❤️ 3mo
