Listening to the book and also The Legendariums read-along podcast. I like the book so far.

Soubhiville Love the colors. 2d
Deifio @Soubhiville thanks! That was actually the only option I had, as my wool shop doesn't usually stock that many skeins of one colour 😅 2d
Soubhiville I actually used to have a sweater in these colors, striped just like this. It was light weight and wide necked so it fell off a shoulder, and it was my favorite. 1d

1) I don't have any goals, I put 35 books down on Goodreads, very achievable
2) Balance, at least that's what I'm striving towards
3) Tagged, yes I like it

@TheSpineView #Two4Tuesday

I haven't participated in any of these in ages!

1) listening to Christmas songs, baking Christmas cookies, getting Christmas cards from my lovely #LitsyLove friends

2) I don't have a reading tradition for Christmas. Probably read the tagged book or continue with my WoT series reread

Read it on my short holiday in the mountains.
I watched the film before I read the book and I really liked both. I think it's a very good adaptation. Uncle Carlos comes off better in the book though. And I like the insight you get into Starr's thinking.
Thanks @kaysworld1 for the book! 😍

Aptly named second book in the series. But to be honest I don't really like either love interest much, especially not Falin. Otherwise it was very good and it set up a lot of questions for the next book to be answered.

Very difficult issue. I had my problems with this book, especially the very confrontational language. But then maybe that's the only way at the moment for people to get it. Glad I read it

Deifio @wanderinglynn thanks! Wasn't sure how much I'd read this year because of covid stress 5mo
wanderinglynn I hear you. Most of my reads this year have been romance. I need some happily ever after to combat the stress. 5mo
Deifio @wanderinglynn I read light stuff too. Romance and Urban Fantasy, some were re-reads, as comfort reads 5mo

My reading buddies, well, in the evenings they tend to play with each other for hours. So it was nice to have both of them on the couch for half an hour 😻
And the book is soo much fun! The audio is really good, too. I alternate between audio and ebook, when I sew or do chores.

@julesG Progress so far. But I've mixed up the tablets. There's supposed to be a white band next to the blue edges. Ah well...first try 😁

julesG Looking good! You are aware that I now have to buy a set, too. I had a set of beer mats we used to weave with, but those were sucked into the black hole that's my daughter's room. 😁 6mo
Deifio @JulesG I can 3D print you a set with shuttle. That's what I did for mine 😅 6mo
julesG That's a great offer. But I could also buy a set here: www.die-Spindel.de I just need make sure I don't buy any more yarn or more weaving paraphernalia. 🙈🙈 6mo

I really enjoyed listening to this series. Sad that I have to leave these characters already. Though I have to say storywise two books was enough, it never got boring this way.

@moonprismpower Wouldn't that be great as an inspiration for your pyrography? It's a coaster, acturally embroidered faux leather, but I think this design would be great for pyrography too.

Moonprismpower Well I hope the other flavors work. Did it come with the flavor options? Can you make your own? I‘d got for a regular iced tea myself 7mo
Deifio @Moonprismpower the box included 3 different cold teas. I might just do ice tea after I tried the other ones, or look up cold tea recipes 7mo

This was great! Thank you all for this recommendation.
Everyone needs a reminder once in a while: Relationships are work and you need to talk to each other about the hard stuff.
I also loved the feminism in this book, great quotable passages!
