Thank you so much for the gifts! I‘m sorry for the late post and the not great photo. As you can see, I‘m already using the blanket, and I can‘t wait to read Doctor Sleep! @Mynameisacolour

Thank you @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for organizing this #winterswap!

I ended up treating myself to my own copy of MacLean‘s latest book instead of waiting for the library copy. I‘ve been exceeding my daily word count goal for #NaNoWriMo for several days in a row, so why not? 🤷‍♀️😂

Slightly Scandalous | Mary Balogh

This was way better than I expected. I usually go into #romantsy that predates 2010 with lowered expectations. Balogh‘s novel exceeded them. I loved the heroine Freyja.

Now I‘m at a loss as to what to read next while I wait for my hold on Sarah MacLean‘s Brazen and the Beast to come in at the library. Help?

ravenlee Have you read any Tessa Dare? I love her romances. Also, Jen DeLuca‘s Well Met is a great recent release. 3w
Bianca @ravenlee I love Tessa Dare! I saw Well Met when I was at the bookstore but ended up buying a copy of Brazen and the Beast instead 🤣. 3w

Taking a break from getting my daily word count for #NaNoWriMo to sit in the backyard with the doggo and enjoy a good read in the lovely weather.

I‘ve been pretty quiet recently because I was going through a mild depression (anhedonia was one of the symptoms). I‘m coming out of it and preparing for #NaNoWriMo now. Here‘s a pick of my workspace. Not pictured is our new rescue doggo sleeping on the guest bed on the other side of the room. 😂

Anyone else gearing up for next month?

Jerdencon Hope you continue to feel better! 2mo
ravenlee Good luck on surfacing from the depression. And lots of luck for NaNoWriMo! 2mo

I was browsing Libby for some nonfiction to read last night when I came across this book. It seems an interesting place to start in learning about Ebola. (Not my highlighting btw.)

I finally finished this a few days ago. It only took me three weeks. 😅

Now, I‘m waiting for Dragonfly in Amber to be ready at the library.

Oana7 I've also finished the first part and now I am waiting for Dragonfly in Amber too 🙂 I loved the first part!!! 5mo
Bianca @Oana7 Yes! I didn‘t expect so much adventure and so many twists and turns. I‘m watching the first season of the tv series while I wait for Dragonfly. 5mo

I don't re-read books, but, the other night, in an effort to focus my brain on something for long enough to fall asleep, I borrowed this on Libby and am 18% in. (I need to acquire a paper copy.)

Re-reading is fantastic, especially when you're about to start a major next phase in your life (LSAT prep course). 😂

wanderinglynn Good luck on the LSAT. 🍀 And if you need any insight or have any questions about law school, hit me up. It‘s been a few years since I graduated, but the legal world doesn‘t change that much. 😉 7mo

I finished Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan's Disaster Zone by Richard Lloyd Parry last night and wanted to continue on my nonfiction streak.

AlaMich Masha Gessen is so interesting. I‘ve never read any of her writing but I‘ve heard her interviewed numerous times. The book sounds fascinating...depressing, but fascinating. (edited) 12mo

Ghosts of the Tsunami | Richard Lloyd Parry

I can't seem to get into any fiction, even in audio. So I'm sticking with nonfiction (the only books I've been able to finish this month).

Since finding out I have ADD last month, I've wanted to understand even more urgently what it's like for other people processing and experiencing life, even what we consider to be extreme experiences. It's quite something to realize that the way your mind works isn't how most people's minds work.
