I realize I haven‘t posted in like a year, but if you fallow me on IG you know I‘ve been busy. Even though we moved in over a year ago now, it still very much feels like our new home, and no, I‘m not entirely unpacked yet. Still doing lots of projects though! One thing we really love about living in this little village is our neighborhood independent bookstore, The Golden Bee. It‘s such a happy space and we absolutely LOVE going there! #Bookhaul

Systematically packing up the bookshelves, and listening to this audiobook. I spent 2 weeks a year and a half ago building these bookshelves. I had no idea at the time how quickly we would move, but I don‘t regret building them at all. In fact I‘m planning to do something similar in our new house eventually.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Congratulations on your new home!! 1y
Bren912 These shelves are beautiful! Hope your move goes smoothly and your reading nook even more spectacular in your new home. 1y
GypsyKat @Bren912 Sorry it took me so long to respond. Thank you so much! I built them myself so it was sad leaving them. But I have plans to build more in our new home, along with about a hundred other projects lol 3w

The Kept Woman | Karin Slaughter
post image
Mehso-so

I picked this up with a handful of Karin Slaughter‘s other books for a couple bucks at a library sale a while back. This is the first one of her books that I‘ve ever read. I don‘t know what I was expecting, but all the talk about rape and child sexual abuse really made this a difficult read for me personally.

5feet.of.fury Her writing is very graphic/gory in general. 2y
kelseycoleburke I love Karin Slaughter but her books can be quite disturbing. There‘s more to them than the violence but I would say they all (I‘ve read them all) have violent themes running through them 2y
GypsyKat @5feet.of.fury @kelseycoleburke I don‘t mind gore or violence, but SA, especially with children is difficult for me to read. 2y

I‘m pretty sure that I got this free on Audible. I don‘t typically read books that are heavy on religion, but this one was really touching. Dealing with grief and family and mental illness, with a heavy emphasis on faith, this was a surprisingly sweet tearjerker. Three and a half stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

Ooof! Although I enjoyed most of the other short stories in this Christmas treasury, this one reads like propaganda against teaching Critical Race Theory. Zero stars for this last story, so I‘m averaging 3 stars for the whole thing. So… it‘s a pick? But like, just not this last book. 🤷🏻‍♀️
