Who needs anything more than coffee and a good book?

What have you been reading lately that you love?? Looking for some suggestions!

It has been a whirlwind of a few months and haven't been on here in ages. I've been busy finishing up one masters degree and moving on to a second in clinical mental health counseling. Life has been stressful to say the least, but oh so rewarding! Two weeks until break and you can bet I'll be back to my for fun reading!

Hey, Litsy! It has been a hot second... My life these days consists of continual reading for class. Currently working on this gem!

rretzler I‘ve heard about it but never read it. I would think it would be terribly sad. 8mo

Lately I've been focusing more on how to be gentle with myself. Anxiety is a rough one, guys. However, this book is giving me a glimpse into the fast paced world we live in and how it perpetuates feelings of unease. To my fellow anxious humans, hang in there! You are amazing! 👏👏👏

Just read this book in one sitting and I am left feeling so unsettled. I don't know how Samanta did it, but each and every page had me getting more and more tightly wound. If you are looking for a read that is confusing and unsettling - this is definitely the one!

Why is it that all books you put on hold at the library end up arriving at the same time? 5 new books. All short loan and nonrenewable 😂 anyone think I can make it through all of them in 2 weeks?

Anyone else bullet journal? How do you include your reading in weekly, monthly, or special spreads? #bujo #bulletjournal

DGRachel Mine aren‘t nearly as pretty as this one. I have a special bookshelf spread where I record books for the entire year. Vertical books are bought/borrowed in current year, MountTBR books are stacked horizontally. It helps me track both my overall goal and MountTBR goal for the year. Then, each month, I list what I read, along with whether it was print, audio, or ebook, length of book, and my rating. 10mo
Heatherfeather Yes! I Bullet Journal! I only keep a running list of what I've read (and listened to) with a grade. Then I tally them up and compile them into stats at year-end. You have inspired me to do something with my TBR mountain. 😁😍 10mo
