The writing is beautiful but I so hated Elio‘s father by the end of the first 100 pages. I was just tired of reading the navel gazing. Bring on the characters I care for already!

Honestly, just reading this book is causing stress because low-wage jobs like this are my life. Not quite this stressful right now (so far) but yeah.

Great book. Not sure what drove me to read it, but it‘s worth the time. Good insight into one woman‘s childhood in Black adoption (her term) to being a foster/adoptive mother. #snuggleinandread is over. 9 hours and 6 minutes into #24B4Monday. 7 hours and 23 minutes for #DeweysReadathon.

Well. That happened. It‘s about a witch so it qualifies for the #scarathon (#TeamSlaughter!) but I‘m not sure what to think. I‘m at an hour and 38 minutes in #24B4Monday. @Clwojick

#PSL so I have a pic. I finished Adams Family (started it in late September) and watched Adams Family Values today. Both for the first time EVER. Enjoyed the first one a lot, but the second was kind of whacked out hah. #Teamslaughter #Scarathlon @Clwojick

The level of excitement I have for this book is so high I pre-ordered it. I never do that. And then to top it off, it was pre-ordered through Amazon 😬. Anyone know why they‘re the only ones releasing the paperback the same day? If it‘s an error I‘m canceling because I hate them, but I really don‘t like hardcover as a rule.

Good, but massively depressing. I already didn‘t think highly of my generation‘s prospects, now I think even less highly of them. Also, it‘s weird to see such a generational warfare book produced by a conservative, but here we are. Still, an interesting read.

This took a while for me to get into. Although I eventually liked it ok, the civil war references are a bit dated and the protagonist‘s ex is too creepy for me to like in a “cozy” mystery. #summerofcozies

I‘m here to ask Litsy for help: I seem to be at a crossroads. My job is inadequate, I‘m looking for work but have the impending recession looming over me now, my car needs 1000‘s of dollars or repairs to be safe to drive (I‘m lucky I have a good support system, so getting to my job won‘t be a problem). I‘m starting to see depression looming again. What books made a mark on you during a crossroads in your life? #help #crossroads #recommendations

TrishB I don‘t have any specific books. But when I feel so many different things getting on top of me I try and see which I can actually solve and try and plan something for those. Just having a plan helps me. I‘m not trying to be patronising as we all approach things differently I know. Hope you start to find some answers. 4mo
Megabooks I‘ve had two years worth of issues in my life recently and read this three times 4mo
TheBookDream @Megabooks thank you, I‘ll check it out 4mo
TheBookDream @TrishB I‘ve been working on that too, but having trouble with the long term planning. Either way, it seems like leaving the weekend free of such activities has been helpful in getting perspective. Weekend for books and board games. Weekdays for life. 4mo
TrishB I try not to do anything at least one day of the weekend for the same reason! 4mo

#24in48 check-in. I actually had another 36 minutes on the clock at least, but one a tradition I...screwed up the timer. I was using TimeCamp too, so that shouldn‘t have happened. Whatever. If I make 2-4 hours I‘ll be happy. Very busy day though.

It‘s #toohot and anything other than sitting quietly indoors reading causes melting. So reading and listening to classic rock. Had Cheap Thrills by Big Brother and the Holding Company on, and now it‘s the White Album by The Beatles.

Cheshirecat913 I really liked this book when I read it a while ago. I got the second book and mean to do a reread sometime in the future. 5mo

So after a ton of water and a day spent almost entirely in bed, minus vacuuming, I am feeling better. I tried watching the debate but quickly got discouraged. Back to fanfic for the moment. #fanfic #pusheen #nook #summersucks
