1. Self-care. Need to value my mental health more.
2. Usage of social media
3. So far is quite an ambitious word... But lately I can say is the realization that is ok to get help from others.

Is a very nice book. Fast read very compelling story. I read it in Spanish. Not sure if there is a translation to English. The dessert was also good.

IuliaC I enjoyed this one very much. There's a translation to French, but I don't know if there is any to English. 3mo
CaroPi @luliaC in December I bought the second book translated to Spanish and I really like it. Hope to read it soon 3mo

After a very long reading slump due to personal issues (is getting better now ?) starting again. This is a great #horror book. Is old so I found myself furious when they say "old woman of 30 years old ". But it was written in 1931. Is not for the fainted heart

julesG Feel better! (like how the sandwich complements the cover of the book) 10mo
CaroPi @julesG thanks a lot! Is a slow process. Yes I noticed that after the picture 😊 10mo

Actually the title in English is Phenotypes. But this is the author

Is a physical book

I will give 3.5 /5 is a very interesting topic but the paragraphs are way too long. Is difficult to read it

I do that in some books. But pencil and sticky notes. Specially if they are for a reading club. In my ebook I also highlight and take notes some times

1. I don't have a garden but I have a balcony that every year I put flowers. Also my house have plants all around. No garden when you live in a building 😩

2. I have 6 orchids. Some of them more than 5 years old! I have in my balcony something that is a small strawberry and soon I will have the first ones of the year!
3. I am not into reading about flowers or gardens. I think I have never read about the topic

I made my reading goal... Yes.. Nevertheless I feel that in 2021 I didn't get into my books... Kind of a reading slump... For some reason I didn't enjoy books as much as I usually do 🤷🏼‍♀️. Nevertheless they are some accomplishments and I am ready to twist these results in 2022!

The stats come from #thestorygraph

ShyBookOwl I had a similar experience this year. I bailed on more books than I care to count. I'm a mood reader and this year my mood was all over the place, so it was challenging to maintain interest in every book I picked up. I ended up reading about a dozen books less than previous years 🤷🏽‍♀️ 2y

This book is called in English The Choice. And yes is a hard book. No it doesn't focus on her experience in Auschwitz. It focus on the importance of healing. She uses her experience as well as the experience of some of her patients to show us the long road to heal. Highly recommended!
