Sitting in the airport, waiting to board in about an hour. ✈ I'm anxious, but I have some books to keep me company, so I'm okay. No matter where you are, as long as you have a book with you, you're not alone. 💕📚

I'm leaving tommorrow night to visit my family in NJ for a long weekend. I don't get back until super late on Sunday. *sighs* I love them, but let's just say my super religious, uber conservative, trump loving family is not very easy to be around. Anxiety city, here I come! 😥 Here are the books I'm thinking about taking...though I will need to wittle this pile down a bit to be able to fit them in my carry on! 😁📚💕

JulietBooks I need to carry at least 2 books with me or else I feel like something is missing. 24h
Branwen @JulietBooks Yes! I am the exact same way! 😀 24h
Ruthiella Oof! I feel you pain both about what books to take and dealing with MAGA relatives! 😀 24h

Branwen @GrilledCheeseSamurai How long were they visiting for? I feel ya, friend. 💕 23h
GrilledCheeseSamurai @Branwen it was a shorter visit this year. 1 week. 1 looooooong week. 😅 23h
AnansiGirl Oy I feel your pain. MAGA relatives these days are emotionally draining to be around. 23h

American Gods | Neil Gaiman
post image

Some books and authors I just love to read again and again, and it always feels like the first time. Neil Gaiman is one of those authors for me! His writing has always been a comfort to me, and can calm me down no matter what is going on around me. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think I would go with Neverwhere, if pressed. Recently I just started reading the tagged book again. What are some books/authors you guys feel this way about? 💕📚

Megabooks Rainbow Rowell, Lisa Genova, Elinor Lipman (edited) 3d
GrilledCheeseSamurai I definitely feel for Gaiman the same way you do. 🤩 3d
Ruthiella Agatha Christie for me! 😀 3d
annkuch13 I definitely feel that way about Gaiman. I've read American Gods 9 times and have been itching for another reread since it's been a couple years. I love those editions! Another for me is Kristen Britain. 3d
Meaw_catlady Gaiman!! Paulo Coelho, Margaret Atwood, JK Rowlings 2d

Enjoying a nice warm evening on my balcony. Excited to be starting this one tonight! I keep reading conflicting reviews for this one so I'm interested to find out what the fuss is all about! 📚💕 Happy Friday, littens!

marleed I‘m intrigued by polarizing books. What freaks me out is when a book is in the 90 percentile for picks while I‘m a so-so! 5d
Branwen @marleed Yes! I totally get that! It makes you feel like you're missing something! 5d

"It didn't matter what hit the fan; as long as there were unread books in the world, she would be fine."

This resonated SO deeply with me, as I have always felt the same way. Books have gotten me through some really bad times in my life. And whenever things have gotten dark I just remember that there are books in the world and it always cheers me up! ??? What is a book that has helped you through a bad time? One for me was the Eragon series!

This is my last entry for Dave's giveaway, I swear! I must really want the prize! 😁🤞ANYWAY. Cersei Lannister. Queen of the f*%@ing realm. She does awful, despicable things but...I love her anyway! There's just something about her that I can't help cheering for! And while, ultimately, Daenarys Targaryen is my favorite GoT character, I can't help secretly raising a glass of wine to salute my evil queen! 🦁💕

My second entry in this giveaway post! 😁 My other favorite literary villian is...Mara Jade from the Star Wars expanded universe.

I have always loved how strong and badass she is, even when she was a villian! 💕

My favorite literary villain is...Lanfear from Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Why? A couple reasons! First of all, she's batshit crazy! All the things she does are laced with that unique craziness of hers. 😈 And also, I feel like she's a bit sympathetic of a character. You know everything she does originates back to one point-her love for the dragon reborn. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity Dave! 💕

DaveGreen7777 Excellent choice, Becky! 👏 Lanfear is such a great twisted villain, since in her mind she‘s doing everything out of “love”, even though her actions are anything but loving! 😱 She‘s easily my favorite of the Forsaken, although since I love crafty villains, Moghedien is a very close second! 🕷 1mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 I love Moggy so much too, it was hard to choose between the two of them! They're both such great villians! 😱 1mo

My idea of a great evening - starting a new book (with snacks!) and relaxing on my balcony! Happy Saturday night, littens! 😊💕📚

Starbucks has a new colorful frappachino and I'm kind of all about it! 😁

Stacy_31 What would you say the flavor is like? I‘ve looked online and all I can find is a “fruity” flavor. 1mo
Branwen @Stacy_31 Honestly? It kind of tastes like a banana laffy taffy! So definately fruity, but in a candy sort of way! 🍬 I really liked it! 1mo
Stacy_31 Interesting. I was kind of hoping it was mango, like the unicorn one a couple years ago. 1mo

Branwen @Stacy_31 I remember that one! 🦄 Yeah...this new one leans more towards candy than fruit I'm afraid! 1mo
