Now I want a fairy godmother like this, too. 🙏🏻👸🏼🧚🏼♀️
Sitting in a hotel room in middle-of-nowhere Texas. But at least I brought good company! I‘m enjoying this so far...just the right amount of creepiness and suspense.
Scheduling surgery the week of Thanksgiving isn‘t a weight loss plan I wouldn‘t recommend. 😝 I also thought I would spend my 2 weeks off work reading up a storm, but the 📚 pile has barely been touched. Maybe tomorrow I‘ll finish 1 of my 3 in progress...
I never had to read this in high school or college English, so I figured in my mid-40‘s it is about time. I feel like everyone over 15 has read this but me!
After reading a book with a sociopathic bad guy that was a bit too similar to my recent ex, it is time for something that makes me laugh. Eddie Izzard will do that every time. #doyouhaveaflag
Wow - this has been quite a week. I need to read something fun and/or lighthearted to help me pull out of this funk. Turns out that even though I have stacks of books at home and on my Kindle, none of them are really screaming "read me!" Help!
The perfect beach read that didn't make it to the beach with me last week because the hardback copy didn't fit in my suitcase. Oh well! On my couch with Almost Famous - a huge favorite - playing on the 📺 for background noise is a close second. #SUMMERGIVEAWAY @Liberty
I love love love Kristin Bell and this is like reading an episode of the show. ❤️
How could I pass up something recommended by Rainbow Rowell, Roxane Gay and Jenny Lawson?! I've only read 10 pages and I already know I am going to follow Samantha Irby. #litsypartyofone
On a long road trip today, so listening to this. Hopefully my drive won't match the book title! 🚗
I'm 1/3 through and it is so hard to read right now....so much needless killing of animals by the Nazi army. 😭 #animallover
I finally broke down and got a pair of reading glasses. I don't need them all the time yet, but too many hours studying massive spreadsheets and reading over the years made them inevitable. 🤓 #ageisjustanumber
This is what is going to keep me entertained during the storms that will be rolling through town this weekend. ⚡️🌪⛈ #springcleaningreadathon
This was a light-hearted read that many have compared to Forrest Gump, with good reason. It few a little tiresome about 3/4 of the way through, but I still would recommend it as a palate cleanser after something dark or heavy.
I am utterly exhausted after waking up at 3:45am today for an early flight, but I keep telling myself "just one more page..." This book is so elegantly written and descriptive that it is worth staying up a little longer. I want to finish it by the end of the week! #iwillalwaysmaketimeforagoodbook #sleepisoverrated
Loved meeting Martha Hall Kelly tonight! She told a number of stories about the real life versions of her characters and 2 prequels that are her next projects. One involves Caroline's mother and Russia and the other is about Caroline's grandmother and the Civil War. Can't wait!
After a rough few weeks I went against my self-imposed bookstore ban and went to Barnes & Noble. I needed to get a book light to replace one I left at a hotel by accident recently. Oops. This is what happens when I go in a bookstore.... And on top of that, Amazon had a ton of great deals on ebooks and audiobooks today! #bookhaul #bookproblems #needmorehoursintheday #booksmakemefeelbetter
I wanted to like this book. I usually enjoy dark suspense thrillers, and a few people I usually agree with on book reviews enjoyed it. Not sure if it didn't have enough suspense, was too predictable or the timing was wrong for me when I read it, but it was really hard for me to get through the middle third of the story. The first third flew by, though, and the ending was quick, even if a tad disappointing.
An early V-Day gift from the boyfriend. He knows a book makes me light up more than chocolate! I want to read all of them right now, but I am most excited for The Patriots. A debut novel and historical fiction - 2 of my favorite things!! It is about Russia and the Cold War.
