Fourth one done. I haven‘t read through books these quickly in I couldn‘t tell you how long. Another one I enjoyed and this time I didn‘t even know who the killer was until It was revealed. Im@sad there is only one left but can‘t wait to start it.

Perhaps this will be the summer of cozy mysteries for me but the third book in this series is completed and I honestly have no idea what it is but I love this series. Maybe I love it because it‘s helping me to pull me out of this massive reading drought that I have found myself in in the past two years but I also love the friendship aspect in this series and the relationship between Maggie and Sam. Either way I‘m here for it. Onto book4!

I‘m not sure if I ever posted on here or if it was just on my Instagram but my boyfriend and I are currently doing the #75hardchallenge. And one of the things you must complete each day with this challenge is to read 10 pages of a non fiction book a day (for 75 days). I just finished my first book, hanger management. Here is a photo of my other non fiction books I will attempt to incorporate in our challenge.

Velvetfur These all look great 🙂 Some of them might be useful for my #education21 reading challenge too! 😁 11mo

AshleyHoss820 🤣 I love it! Honestly, when it gets to the end of the year, I just change my goal so that I‘ll meet it. I just like challenging myself to read more and do less “time-waster” stuff. 😊 (edited) 11mo
Avanders 😂 Awesome - well done! 😁🥳😘 11mo
KathyWheeler @AshleyHoss820 I do the same thing. In fact, if I notice I‘m falling behind, I just decrease the goal. I‘m very flexible about it. 11mo

I won‘t lie. This book overwhelmed me. And not because I feel it was intentional on the writers behalf... I think it was more me seeing how I feel like every eating mannerism that was talked about I exhibit in some shape way or form. I‘m very much into mindfulness but I instantly felt overwhelmed thinking “shit, I feel like I need to fix everything about how I eat”. I think it‘s is a great book with great tips though.

I‘m not letting it get to December 31st 2021 and being upset at myself once again for not hitting a reading goal. So I‘m making it simple. If I read over my goal, great. If I only read one book this entire year, then great! No pressure 2021

This platform truly has been the best place that has given me the opportunity to meet the best people. Although i was quiet in 2020 Im looking forward to 2021 because one of my big goals is just to be more present here and with my first love- books. Love you all ✌♥️📚

(Post 2 of 3) But also have really made great strides in my mental health and tackling my self worth (or lack there of) and anxiety/depression. I found on my journey that my reading for sure fell by the waste side with only reading 11 books thus far this year.. HOWEVER I have learned that im done putting pressure on myself to try and keep up with my friends who are apparently all velocireaders 🤣😂🤣

Becker 11 books is almost 1 a month. That is pretty consistent reading. Hopefully you enjoyed most of them. I would say a lot of people would be quite pleased to have read 11 books in a year. 👏 12mo
Callemarie @Becker i probably should have put a disclaimer that 5 of those were in January and then I didnt finish a book again until july 🤣😂... typically I range from 50-60 a year so, for me, it was not a typical year.. but you sre right.. in hindsight im.oroud I got through that many this year 12mo

(Post 1 of 3) I wanted to take a few moments to discuss my past year on my favorite platform out there. I feel, like probably everyone else, this year has been filled with unknowns, fear, heartache, joy, anxiety/depression, and the list goes on. As shitty as this year has been, it has made me refocus on myself.. which is something I hadn't been doing for years. So this year I've worked on both my physical and mental health, losing 65 pounds so far
