I've been packing all week and I just want all of you to hurt with me a little. Grand total is around 35 boxes of books...easily the most painful part of this divorce was moving them down the stairs 😂😂😂😂 #butactuallyeverythingsucks #butgoodthingsarecoming !!!!

SamAnne Hang in there. Getting to the other side comes in waves. It feels better, it feels worse, it feels better, etc. It takes 2 years minimum to get to the other side. Give yourself time, focus on friendships, and read books. Life is so much better not living ambivalently—about a relationship, a job, whatever. Divorcing was one of the best decisions I‘ve made! 3mo
jb72 I know all about moving books. It is brutal. Sending you all the best and positive thoughts. 3mo
cathysaid Divorced after 17 years. At the time it was terrible and wonderful in equal parts. Now it‘s just wonderful. But the best part is unapologetically getting to know yourself again: your tastes, your concerns, your interests and your life. Wishing nothing but the best for you! 3mo

Hey all! I'm going to be changing my username in the next day or two so don't panic! I haven't been As active on here thanks to a particularly icky few months and it might be a while yet but I will get back to it. My new name will be changing to erinsuemreads across all platforms. I'll be going back to my maiden name eventually too.

Frost and starlight is bugging the hell out me. She keeps changing the POV. The story is good and I‘m enjoying the different characters but there just doesn‘t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the POV switching

Bookgoil I didn‘t like this one much compared to the others 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds I found I liked it if I kept repeating “epilogue novella, epilogue novella” over and over... Glad to have read jtbin the end but yeah, some of the POVs made me want to slap both author and character. (I do not think I‘ll make it through an entire Nesta series without figuring out a way to kill a fictional character) 5mo
ErinSueMreads Yeah I'm totally pretending like a nesta series isn't a thing 😂😂 @GlassAsDiamonds 5mo

I‘m also annoyed at Instagram authors ☝🏻☝🏻

I posted up a new blog today about etiquette in the book world.....

ErinSueMreads It‘s crazy how often it is a problem. I see it more from the author side than the reviewer side for sure. @Lostinagoodbook (edited) 6mo

Sweetkokoro I seen all the stuff that went down with Dean Klein, and it was crazy, I have ever seen something like that in the book world. At the same time though I don‘t blame other authors for wanting to unfollow him or keep their distance, no one wants to be associated with someone like that, it just makes things uneasy and awkward. 6mo

One thing that has always made me a little sad on Litsy is how many people never interact with the community. I haven‘t been as good about posting but it‘s still my favorite community on the internet. I think in an effort to help retain book lovers and show them how cool this place is I‘m going to start doing a weekly shoutout for any new followers I get. I have been working on cleaning my friends list lately and unfollowing dead accounts. Look...

Ms_T I go through my following list every once in a while and do the same. 7mo
ErinSueMreads I‘ve been bad about it with school and so it‘s really high and it becomes hard to find people in my list so I‘m planning a big purge.

ErinSueMreads No hiding @jb72 you know I‘m not going to let you get away with that vague answer!😂😂😂 7mo
jb72 @ErinSueGreads LOL well I just bought 25 used books last Saturday so my calculations may be a bit off. Let‘s see - math - which I haven‘t used since college (although I still have a few math books). Head explodes 🤯 7mo

rretzler Yikes, I would guess 75 for print books, but I‘m currently holding the vast majority of my library with easily 2,000 books on my lap (my Kindle). 7mo
Kerrioke *looks at her four overflowing bookshelves* ... Um... Probably around 35 big boxes? And I‘m sure I‘m wildly underestimating 😅😂 7mo
AsYouWish I am going to say 20 plastic totes because I currently have 7 plastic totes in my closet full, a box and a couple tote bags full and I have three book shelves over flowing with books, plus stacks all over my room. 7mo
LauraJ I‘d force myself to pare down to a dozen. 7mo
Amandajoy 48 book boxes from uhaul. I know, because about 40 of them still haven‘t been unpacked from the last move! 😄 7mo
OrangeMooseReads I‘m going to go with 25 boxes at the very least. I like to pack in banana boxes just for size reference. (edited) 7mo
Meaw_catlady I think 3 big boxes ? Idk I haven‘t actually tried to move with them before 7mo

Alright! 1st prompt is: you are going on your dream vacation! Tell me what book from your collection you are taking and where you are going. No limitations on destination.

I‘m going to Iceland and taking American gods because that is where it was inspired!

jmtrivera I'd go to London and take Sherlock and Harry Potter, of course! 7mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Im going to Iceland this summer! Ive been thinking nonstop about what books to bring. 7mo

Kerrioke I‘m going to Australia (it‘s always been my top destination since I was a kid!) and I‘m taking whatever I‘m reading currently, which is 7mo
AsYouWish I am taking Finding Fraser and going to Scotland. I have always wanted to go to Scotland and that book is about a woman who goes to Scotland to find love. 7mo

WOW SO AFTER THAT BRIEF INTERMISSION!

Moving is hard y‘all....but we got it mostly done. Let‘s get back on track with our challenge shall we? Today‘s prompt is “What was the last book you packed up in a swap?” I haven‘t done a swap in AGESSSSSS. But the last one i sent was Game Of Thrones!

Obviously this one doesn‘t have to be one on your shelves but you still can‘t repeat a book soooooo.....

#packingpages

CBee Send me your new address! 😁 #JB 7mo
ErinSueMreads It hasn‘t changed. Did something get returned??? @cbee 7mo

CBee @ErinSueGreads I got it now. Sorry bout that, I should pay better attention! 😂 7mo
Kerrioke I would answer this, but the swap open date hasn‘t passed yet 😂 7mo
LauraJ It‘s been so long that I don‘t remember. I kept getting shopping lists that had to be cross-referenced with lists of thousands of books on goodreads and/or librarything. Took all the fun out of swapping 😿 7mo
RainyDayReading Oh boy I don‘t know....It‘s been so long since I did a swap, way back in October I think....I know I sent someone a copy of The Dry by Jane Harper but I don‘t really remember when. I had a bad experience with a swap last year so since then I haven‘t really participated in any. 7mo
AsYouWish I think it was The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas, if I remember correctly. 7mo

I‘m sitting here working on final papers and by final papers I mean I‘m actually brain dead and just wrote a cathartic blog post. Go read it if you want to hear about how I ended up in a creative writing degree. Or if you want to see me stabbing people with lightsabers.

SW-T Good for you! So glad you‘re taking classes you love instead of doing what someone thinks you should. Best career and life advice I ever got was “no one lives your life but you so make it yours.” Keep making your life yours joyfully 😊💕 (edited) 7mo

Sorry I forgot to post yesterday guys! I‘m sucked into finals and totally spaced.

Anyway! Time for the big reveal! @WhiskeyMistress bought her first house!!! All by herself! I‘m so proud.

Today‘s is easy...what book are you packing around with you currently?

Kerrioke Currently “packing” A Man Called Ove and loving it. 7mo
madamereadsalot1 Do ebooks count!? Or library books? 😅 7mo
sprainedbrain Same question as @madamereadsalot1 ... despite owning hundreds of unread physical books and countless kindle books, I‘m currently reading a library audiobook, a library ebook, and a classic on Serial. 😂 (edited) 7mo
madamereadsalot1 @sprainedbrain same! Just finished The Song of Achilles on ebook and I'm going through The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy audiobook (read it before but it's been ages!), both from the library! 7mo
sprainedbrain @madamereadsalot1 Oh, I love Song of Achilles. One of my all-time favorite books. ❤️ 7mo
madamereadsalot1 @sprainedbrain it is DEFINITELY a new favorite. It was so beautiful, totally broke my heart! 7mo
AsYouWish All the books I am "packing" around are library books or books I borrowed from our school book room. So owned books at the moment. 7mo
Rissa1 I need to make more time for this. 7mo
Susanita Same. I‘m only packing around library books ATM so I can clear some space for my books I‘ll be taking on vacation. 7mo
Stacy_31 This seems like a fun one!! Currently "packing" around Everything I Never Told You, by Celeste Ng. Pretty good so far. Also, congrats to @WhiskeyMistress !! So exciting! 7mo
AsYouWish Currently I am only “packing” around library books, saving my personal books for this summer. 7mo

@madamereadsalot1 the end of that last one killed me dead girl...... on to the next I suppose 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

madamereadsalot1 Is this the one where it ends with her being Priya? Or the book where Barrons helped her stop being Priya? 8mo
Areader2 The last one I read was FeaFever , I am in agreement,that ending 🙄 😂I haven‘t read Dreamfever #4 8mo
ErinSueMreads Becoming priya. What a disaster! @madamereadsalot1 8mo
madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads it's been so long since I read them, but I do recall that one being a shit show. But you're on you're way to a comical dirty treat with this next one. 😂🤣 8mo

@madamereadsalot1 I‘m having sooooo many feelings right now......

madamereadsalot1 Tell me aaaallllllll of your feelings!! Ya know ya gal loves ta talk books. 😂 8mo
ErinSueMreads Ok. 1. If this Christian guy turns out to be a baddy too I‘m going to be so pissed! Like can‘t an annoying brat catch a break?????? I never thought I‘d be saying that. 2. V‘lane is totally working his faery magic on me. Like what is it in female nature to like people that are awful. Why do we do this to ourselves!! (edited) 8mo
ErinSueMreads 3. Barrons is totally freaking me out. And who the fluff was the dead chick he brought of the mirror!!!?? I can‘t! 4.im so so so into the machalo. 5. Can I get on the internet and see what this barrons bastard is yet? The suspense is pissing me off! 5. Can ANYONE get a little sexual satisfaction around here anywhere?!?!?? 6. And why the frig do I like V‘lane AGAIN??? @madamereadsalot1 8mo
madamereadsalot1 1. No spoilers to prove or disapprove your question here. 2. Dude, I wonder the same thing with every bastard ass character that I get the hots for. Including Vlane. I feel shame. 3. Barrons is one of my book boyfriends. Also, I can't remember the mirror scene. 4. 😂 5. Yeah, it's not as steamy as some of the other books in her repertoire, or in the genre. 6. Vlane is more than meets the eye. Maybe we just like complicated sexy fake men? Lol! 8mo

madamereadsalot1 I've read everything she's ever published. I am SUCH a whore for Moning's books!! 8mo
ErinSueMreads Oh god Mac drives me nuts!!!! @madamereadsalot1 8mo
madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads I HATE Mac. Like, fully and totally abhor her. That's why I think Moning is incredible because despite having created one of the world's most annoying characters, it's still an incredible series and the other characters are great! It's not even that Mac is badly written, she's just annoying. 8mo
ErinSueMreads Yes to all of that! Like why am I still reading when literally everyone annoys me?!? And why is barrons making me question my stance on asshole man characters?????? @madamereadsalot1 @Meaw_catlady get in on this and tell us how you are feeling other than being completely irritable about their being no good sexy parts in the first book 😂😂😂 8mo
Meaw_catlady @madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads the first thing I said when I started reading was. I hate this pink wearing sassy ass Mac. I still wanted her to let the seelies £^*¥! The crap out of her. ☕️ 8mo
ErinSueMreads Harsh! He makes a comeback in the second one @Meaw_catlady . The thing that is killing me about Mac is just everything. 😂. Do the others get better @madamereadsalot1 8mo
madamereadsalot1 @ErinSueGreads @Meaw_catlady she gets a bit less annoying as they go on. But mainly I think it's because the cast of characters just keeps growing so she's not AS front and center. I love the entire series. 8mo

Okay! Here it is! The surprise game! The rules: repost this picture with hashtag #Fridayfun and see if your followers can guess which is bigger, your TBR or your physical Book collection. (Count them it is fun)

Later on tonight we can all share answers! So which do you think is bigger? My TBR (I chose goodreads) or my physical collection. Guesses on numbers?
