TheKidUpstairs Hi Chantelle, we're you able to send the next book to me? I didn't receive anything this month. Give me an update when you can! Thanks! 1mo
TheBookWitchON Omg! Hi! So... I got covid. Like really bad. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. The tumor in my head made it that much worse cause coughing makes it feel like my head wouldl explode from pressure. The books will be sent out ASAP (probably Friday)! I apologize. I feel so bad. I completely forgot the books existed and my husband didn't know what they were either. Please forgive me ladies. 3w
TheKidUpstairs @TheBookWitchON oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that, it's so rough to go through, but especially when your system is already compromised. I hope you are on the mend! Don't feel bad, I'm just glad to know that nothing was lost in the mail anywhere. 3w
TheKidUpstairs Hi Chantelle, how are you feeling? I just wanted to touch base because I haven't received a package yet. Were you able to get it sent off? I think at this point if you haven't sent it yet, you can just send it straight to @melissajayne 4d
melissajayne @TheKidUpstairs I already have had it. 4d
TheKidUpstairs @melissajayne not the tagged one, it's your original book that I've never received from Chantelle. 3d
melissajayne @TheKidUpstairs I got a copy of the book; I don‘t understand what is going on. 3d

I have had such a hard time reading my book for #lmbc. I have 5 days to read 200+ pages. The tumor in my head has been flaring up pretty badly and I have a wicked headache. Wish me luck!

#LMBC
How do I mark up this book? Someone said just to highlight parts that stand out to me. Is that right? Sorry, I've never done this.

CBee @suvata can you help? 😊 5mo
suvata You can mark them up however you want. You can highlight areas, underline lines, write notes in the margins, etc. you don‘t have to be totally serious about your notes. Often times, people will just write “lol“ “yummy”. I have even been known to attach a picture to a page that has additional images or explanations that I found while googling something. The photo you provided with your question looks just perfect to me. (edited) 5mo

When I say I love these books.... the pure innocence and beauty of Nick and Charlie's relationship. It brings me such joy.

Sweet Valley High | Francine Pascal
post image

Anybody else find themselves feeling nostalgic, longing to read books from their childhood? I have been missing the Sweet Valley High books a lot lately. I read every single one of them in grade 8 with a friend. They really helped ignite my love of books.

TheBookWitchON And, of course, we can't forget The Babysitters Club! I was so happy when I was lost in my books. My childhood and early teens were quite traumatic, books helped me escape and feel safe. 5mo
slategreyskies Mine were traumatic too. I think reading books saved me, you know? 3mo
TheBookWitchON @slategreyskies I do know. It's how I learned about the type of person I wanted to be, how parents are suppose to treat their children, what a healthy relationship looks like. Not to mention escaping into another world even for just an hour. It made life a lot more tolerable. 3mo
slategreyskies Yes, I get that. It was the same for me. I remember when my mom finally realized that sending me to my room wasn‘t a punishment to me (because I‘d be in heaven away from everyone else and just reading a book on my bed). After that, whenever I got in trouble, instead of being sent to my room, I‘d have to sit in the living room with everyone else without a book! Odd the things we remember. Books really were life changing. So glad you had them too. 3mo

My doctor has extended my medical leave until Sept 8th. I haven't been to work since Dec 19th 2021. I miss my friends and colleagues. I miss time away from my house. I miss not constantly having headaches. Head tumors are not fun, would not recommend.

KateReadsYA I'm so sorry! 🥰 you look so beautiful today. Hope you are keeping your head up. 5mo
TheBookWitchON @KateReadsYA I like to think it gives me lots of reading time. Haha 5mo

I'm going to choose Unnatural Magic for my #LMPBC! Does that work for everyone else?
Also, I will mark in purple 💜

TheKidUpstairs That sounds good to me! I'll look at my shelves tomorrow for my pick 😁 And I'll write in green if that's okay. 5mo
zenwldflwr - sounds good to me as well and I am heading out tomorrow to grab a pick, and I'll write in blue if okay ( can do dark or light blue)

I really enjoyed this book, so happy I picked up Daughter of the Siren Queen at the same time. Alosa is so strong and powerful. Riden is so caring and not your typical Pirate. I honestly couldn't wait to finish this book.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are so young and quirky, it made me giggle at how oblivious they were. Arek is a great King, but is complete unaware of it. It's a cute read if you're looking for something LGTBQ+.

Ok, so I didn't bail on Lore, it's just that I'm so much more excited for this one. My hubby came home from work last night and asked if I wanted to go to the bookstore, as if I would ever say no. I went thinking I'd grab The Daughter Of The Pirate King, but they didn't have it. I think it was @hannah-leeloo that had posted about getting this one a few weeks back. I've been wanting it since. Started it last night and very happy so far!

Holy cow! Did I enjoy this book? YES! Alessandra was the perfect mix of independent, conniving, and vulnerable. The Shadow King is broody, withdrawn, and equally as vulnerable. I will definitely need to get Daughter Of The Pirate King and Daughter Of The Siren Queen by the same author.

thereadingpal This is a standalone right? I don't think I should start another series... 6mo
TheBookWitchON @thereadingpal Yes! There is a second stand alone with a 2024 release date about Alessandra's sister. 6mo
thereadingpal @TheBookWitchON Oh, nice! I'll make sure it to add it to my neverending list lol 6mo
TheBookWitchON @thereadingpal I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 6mo

I spent the majority of this book not sure what I thought of it. It took me a lot longer to read than I'm used to, I just never really felt like I was fully immersed in the world. At the end of the book I found I did actually quite enjoy the story.

I'd give it 2-3 stars so far, I'm thinking I'll like it
I do not mark my books in anyway (I stress if I crease the spine)

I dont know anyones tags yet but ill work on it for next Thursday! Play along if you want.

It's been a long time since I've read a book in a day. I loved this book, and as predicted it hit me right in the feels.

The book follows Julie as she prepares for high school graduation after the death of her boyfriend of 3 years. Through the struggles of not wanting to let go and moving on with her life.

I 100% recommend this book to anyone who liked the movies Your Name, If I Stay, and PS I Love You.
