Anyone else get stressed out picking a yearly planner book?😂😭 I‘ve yet to find the perfect one that doesn‘t cost an arm and a leg!
Managers are off to a big meeting.... Study time it is. Fitting section for the spooky season?
Last post! And this is marked spoiler in case you are attending his event. If so, keep scrolling so you will be just as surprised!
Stephen read a brand new letter from Charlie that is featured in his 20th year edition of Perks of Being a Wallflower... and there was not a dry eye in the house. If Perks moved you, helped you, got you through a bad time, etc., find yourself the new edition and see what Charlie has to say. And bring a tissue.
Also, just to fan girl further. I was sitting in front of his friends from high school who all have small mentions in his books! He used an actual girls last name in Imaginary Friend simply because he loves the sound of it (she got an applaud.) And the “notorious drunk” was also in attendance 😂 They were all so kind and supportive of him; it melted my heart a little.
If all goes smoothly with my dentist appointment tomorrow, I‘ll be able to attend my first ever book signing and meet Stephen Chbosky! I‘m absolutely fangirling already... what‘s your favorite question to ask an author?! Any tips on attending a book signing??
Yay! I love a good tote bag! I also picked the tagged book. Something about children bursting into flames when mad just tickled my dark humor bone 😂 Couldn‘t pass it up!
I really wanted some fall themed bookmarks... So of course I hit up my go-to! Love them, @That-Bookish-Hiker ! And thanks for the sticker, too!
If you‘re ever in need of some solid, beautiful and fun bookmarks and stickers, head on over to her Etsy and get you some!
Brad Meltzer was on my (the one I listen to) morning radio show talking about his newest books in the Ordinary People Change the World Series... and I just forgot how much I adore these children‘s books. Currently adding all 19 to my amazon wish list even tho I believe I have two at home 😂😍
I do not have a favorite author. Not because I have so many that I can't pick just one; just that I do not have *one specific* author of whom I follow so I can read all of their work. Is that taboo? I feel like everyone has a favorite author...
Took me long enough to finish this one (nothing to do with the book) And I‘m glad I found the time to! That ending though. I was confused... but once it clicked, 🤯. Passed my copy along to a coworker instantly with good praise!
I devoured this in high-school; and put it on my then list of top reads, but I haven‘t read it since. I watched season one of the Netflix show when it came out, and was shaken by the rawness of it. I didn‘t hate the show, but did feel strongly for those who may have watched it and found themselves worse off. I‘m curious to see how I‘ll perceive the book now that I‘m older, would say I‘m in a better mental state, and have a child of my own.
Heeeey Litsy friends!
I am in need of some recommendations if you have them! I have THE pickiest 5 year old (going on six) eater this side of the East Coast. Does anyone have any books they recommend (other than the tagged title) to help with that? I‘m losing my marbles and she‘s becoming even more stubborn 😓
I assume (hope) most people have that one book they like to collect different covers of? 😅 Mine is apparently War of the Worlds (I already have two in my collection...)
But these were so pretty! The gray one really got me as it‘s more journal type with the elastic band and has a sturdy oversized cover... Super stoked to add these to my shelf!
Today‘s shopping trip was a mix for myself and my daughter 😬 Real excited to give her the Junie B. Jones as she is starting 1st grade herself, next Monday. (Parent moment: where is time going and how do I make it slow down?)
Also had a field day in the children‘s education section 😂 The Titanic book may be more for me than her (there‘s a cd inside where you explore the titanic 😬😬😬)
Of course this shows up in the mail on the day I worked 10 hours plus had two hours of commute time 😭 I‘m so tired. But I very much want to get this started! Has anyone else read it? Are you loving it?!
Meanwhile, my friends and I made a group and started D&D 😂
I must say... I regret making fun of it in the past. With the right friends (and maybe a bit of alcohol... but mostly with the right friends...) it‘s a crap ton of fun 😬 Gotta read through this monster (ha, get it...) of a book and learn the ropes!
I finally had time to delve deeper into this one this weekend... I am thoroughly confused about where this is going to go... and slightly creeped out. Hoping the end doesn‘t disappoint!
This decision took all but two seconds on the website! I am STOKED! I recently put it on my wish list after seeing a fellow bookworm rave about it.
C‘mon USPS! No delays pleeease!
The rest of that last line is “... that happiness is an end in itself, the worse it gets.”
What a beautiful description of how humans treat emotions.
Taking a break from Annihilation and digging into this much talked about book, but the quiet porch party is still going; beer has been added into the mix, too. I could get used to this.
My fur nephew wanted to join in, too.
I have the house to myself today..... The fight between getting all the chores done, uninterrupted, and reading a book or two, uninterrupted, was a good one. Fought long and hard....
Lol jk, I‘m out on the porch with my feet up in the sun and my kindle fully charged 😂 Sunday funday.
I have 21 days to finish these 😂 Which should I start with?? Looking for the quickest read of the bunch!
Another Amazon Prime day steal; this one is for my daughter!
But secretly, I want to keep it for myself 😂 The cover has that soft touch matte feeling (my faaaavorite material for book covers) and the planets on it have a 3-D bubble texture thing going. Super fun!
Snagged from Prime Day 😍They also gave me a one time book coupon for $5 (wink wink hint hint) so it was only $13 at checkout! 🙌🏻
Look what came in today 😬
Instantly my most favorite book in my Harry Potter collection 😂🙌🏻👏🏻😍
So after a long feud with the radiator in the other car (broke down once more after the last two, after it‘d been repaired twice😓,) I was graciously offered a deal on my sisters car; that she happened to be selling the morning I last broke down on the road. 🙌🏻
It has officially been nerded out with some Star Wars decals, a CatBug, and my favorite of them all 👏🏻😍
😬😬😬🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻Is thanking everyone for a 10k milestone still a thing?! Regardless, I‘m doing it! Thanks everyone for being such a great community of bookworms 😍 My tbr list loves you, my bookshelves deplore you for the extra weight of each book added since they‘re struggling to support the others already, and my brain can‘t get enough! Litsy, you‘re the best!
And as a surprise anniversary gift, my boyfriend found this hidden in the store 😍 It‘s full of fun things to take out like Newts wanted poster and an official wand application form that would be found in the film somewhere 😬😬 I am stoked!
There was a 2nd and Charles right across from our hotel... It had to happen 😬
As excited as I was to read this, it's falling short of the previous three books in my opinion; all in which I could NOT put down. The only thing keeping me going is that it greatly involves Eddison, my favorite character of the series. We're off to a pretty slow start, aside from a few pages that brought me to tears. Here's to hoping it picks up.
Working on our summer reading 😊😍 Two finished chapter books with a brief summary = Trip to Second and Charles for more books!
Who‘s playing?! 😬😁

Round two with a broken down car. Worked better this morning, but I guess the radiator decided to crack this afternoon. At least I have a prettier view this time...
