Cape May: A Novel | Chip Cheek
post image

#ThoughtfulThursday is a bit different this week. It‘s been a week filled with A LOT of stress & emotions. So, I want to fill our feeds with peaceful things 😌☮️

🌅 The Ocean brings me peace. The waves, the sounds, the smells, the feels—its a full sensory reset for me. Especially at sunset.

📸 I took this photo at the very tip of NJ, in Cape May, last Winter.

✨Everyone can play; tagging some friends to get it started!✨

vonnie862 It's a great picture. I hope the rest of the week goes better for you! 2d
Texreader I certainly understand (& I appreciate your recent letter!). Thanks for the tag! I‘ll post later today. 2d

It has been A WEEK! 😵‍💫 I have had to “people” too much. Birthday parties, Baptisms, Family Family Family🤪🥴😴 I‘m exhausted. (Sorry I missed #thoughtfulthursday this week) Surprisingly, it was an overwhelmingly positive experience ((with my Dad‘s family, one never knows, especially since he‘s been gone)). But I am tired of socializing, so I will be here reading ALL DAY, catching up on my #joysofjune goals.

I finished one of my book goals for #MarvelousMay 📚 and that‘s something I feel good about! I really enjoyed this one; I love Benedict & Sophie, but sometimes Sophie‘s stubbornness and secret keeping drove me crazy. That was the only reason I couldn‘t give this novel 4 stars. I‘m enjoying the #Bridgerton series thus far.

5⭐️: Spectacular Read!
4⭐️: Loved it/Great read.
3⭐️: Highly Enjoyable
2⭐️: Okay

📖Bridgerton 1 & 2 ✅
📺Bridgerton Season 2✅
📖 Bridgerton #3 up next!

….but I still bought new books today 🤪🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

📚Who‘s watched Bridgerton and/or read the series? What do you think? I loved the second series & book—even though they were so different. #Bridgerton #theviscountwholovedme #anofferfromagentleman

BooksNBowls I was extremely disappointed they did not include the full library storm scene. It was my favorite! 😢 I also saw they are skipping Benedict‘s story and going to Pen and Colin‘s instead for season 3. 1mo
sprainedbrain Second season was quite a bit different from the book, but I LOVED it (also love the book). Hope you love Benedict‘s book… I did! ❤️ 1mo
MoonWitch94 @BooksNBowls I agree! It was my favorite scene from their book & something I missed. But, it would‘ve changed the whole season, so I guess I see why they excluded it. But it truly was a beautiful scene. 1mo
See All 15 Comments
MoonWitch94 @sprainedbrain I really liked the changes, too! I felt like it kept to the spirit of Kanthony but was a fun, new spin. I am 100 pages into Benedict‘s story & I‘m liking it. I‘ll keep you posted, Jenni. 1mo
merelybookish Haha. So true! 1mo
MoonWitch94 @merelybookish Isn‘t it? Sums up my book collection habits perfectly 🤪 1mo
BooksNBowls @MoonWitch94 I love the Lady Whistledown plot line in the show and all the side characters stories. They really added some razzle dazzle to the books! 1mo
zezeki This is painfully true! 😅 I've only read the first book, and probably will not continue with the other books, but I've watched both seasons, and loved them! Kate and Anthony are just perfection. 1mo
MoonWitch94 @zezeki K & A are so wonderful ☺️ And I Iove how in depth they go explaining how Anthony‘s trauma over the loss of his father truly shaped who he is. Grief is something that we culturally do not discuss enough. 1mo
MoonWitch94 @zezeki Also! The first book is my least favorite thus far. KAnothy‘s is very good. 1mo
MoonWitch94 @BooksNBowls I love Whistledown! Julie Andrew‘s narration makes its perfect. I agree that the addition of side characters adds so much more! 1mo
authorjessicaerin I've read the first four books and really enjoyed them! Taking a little break before devouring the rest. Audio helps me with these, too! And I think Eloise's was my favorite so far. ❤ 1mo
MoonWitch94 @authorjessicaerin I just finished the third & while I enjoyed Benedict & Sophie‘s story a lot, Anthony & Kate are still my favorite so far. I think after I finish Penelope & Colin I‘ll be breaking as well. Too many other reads demanding my attention. 🤪 1mo
MoonWitch94 @sprainedbrain I did love Benedict‘s story…but Anthony & Kate is still my favorite 😍 1mo
authorjessicaerin @MoonWitch94 Oh yeah! It's good ro switch it up. I always change my reads depending on what I'm writing. I like the two to be very different. 👍 1mo

I am really enjoying this #ARC from #NetGalley. It is a retelling of Little Women, set in 1942; Beth has already died and functions as spirit watching over her sisters. Each chapter is told from alternating POVs, with a poetic interlude from Beth, commenting on her sisters lives. This one comes after a Jo chapter. As someone who has suffered through grief, this hits home. #GreatorNothing #Jo #Meg #Beth #Amy

StaceGhost Not me bursting into tears because of a poem 😭 2mo

#ThoughtfulThursday

🧠I suffer from Depression & Anxiety—which I have struggled with since I was 15 but wasn‘t diagnosed until 2 years ago (at 34). I have learned that rest, comfort, and grace for myself is important. I journal, share how I‘m feeling with my trusted loved ones, and do things that make me feel positive.
🧠 I recommitted to my skincare routine!

Happy Mother‘s Day to all my Littens celebrating today; and to those who find this day difficult, I am thinking of you & sending you love, peace, and tranquility today. 💜 #happymothersday #youareloved #youareseen #begentle

julieclair This is a wonderful reminder that there are all kinds of moms, and that this day can be a difficult one for many people. 2mo
MoonWitch94 @julieclair Yes! It‘s something I never thought about until I lost my Dad in 2013, and suddenly Father‘s Day became difficult. And now so many of my friends are step-moms, having fertility issues, or have lost babies, etc. It puts parenting/parents in perspective. 2mo
julieclair @MoonWitch94 As our life experiences expand, so does our understanding. The wisdom of years. Or at least that's the hope, right? Unfortunately, for some, their compassion narrows as the years go by... 2mo
MoonWitch94 @julieclair I like to think of it as a “privilege” of sorts to be able to have that expansion of understanding. Because, as you said, for some their compassion narrows as they progress through the years. It‘s sad, really. 2mo
julieclair @MoonWitch94 I love the idea of understanding as a privilege. Albeit a hard-earned one. 2mo

#ThoughtfulThursday makes it‘s return! 🌷💐🌷💐🌷

1️⃣📚 I‘m nearly done! It‘s so good!
2️⃣ Yes! I‘m quite a seasonal reader. Romance in Winter/Spring; Stories outside the US in Summer; Horror/Thriller in Autumn. (I read these outside those seasons, too. But the bulk of my TBRs follows seasons, usually).
3️⃣ I look this photo yesterday at a Tulip farm. 8 million tulips from Holland are planted!

Anyone can play! Tagging Littens to start! 🌷

CBee Tulips are one of my favorites!! 🌷🌷 2mo
KristiAhlers Oh I so miss living in Belgium we would drive up to Holland and visit the tulip farms when they were in bloom! But my favorite flowers are garden roses and peonies! I tend not to be a seasonal reader more a what am I in the mood for reader. 2mo
TheSpineView Thanks for the tag! ❤🏷 2mo

Hi, Littens! I‘m back. It‘s been a long, emotional winter for me (depressive period & anxiety, caring for my Grandmother, etc) BUT, just like the wheel of year, my life has turned! I‘m feeling better, my Grandmother is adjusting (and on the upswing) in hospice, and I feel like myself again. I‘m slowly going through all the #litsylove and posts I was tagged in. You‘ll see me back to my regular activities here. I missed you all ♥️⬇️

MoonWitch94 Happy Easter, Happy Passover, & Ramadan Blessings to all celebrating 🥳 May your holidays be filled with peace, love, good reads, and plenty of flavorful, delicious food! 3mo

I wanted so much to enjoy this one. It had great bones, I liked the premise & setting. But the plot lagged too slowly, the language was unbearable, and I just did not enjoy this book. #BBShamp #WifeinWaterColor

✨Thanks to #NetGalley for this #ARC

#ThoughtfulThursday is BACK!!!!

✨My goal is at least 30 books this year!

✨My word of the year is GRATITUDE in 2022. I am practicing being grateful for so much this year. “Glass half full” POV this year! ((Not toxic positivity, just adjusting my view)).

✨The tagged one is difficult to read bc it‘s written in local colonial dialects from 1750s era Maryland. It‘s a struggle.

⭐️Everyone is welcome to play. Tagging some Littens below ⬇️

Juliet Diaz had started a publishing house called Spirit Bound Press ((check out them out in IG)) & shares a series of slides to help readers meet their reading goals for 2022. Such a great bunch of suggestions, I just had to share with my favorite readers ☺️ #SpiritBoundPress #JulietDiaz #Reading2022

#Two4Tuesday Thanks for the tags Lisa & Lynn!

❄️ Yes; but only in December till February. And I prefer a bunch of little storms of a few inches, just to make things pretty.
❄️ Walking at night, when everything is cold & quiet, with a clear starry sky 🌌
