How Lucky: A Novel | Will Leitch

September was an awful month for me. I had a lot of maintenance stuff going on in my apartment so I had to do a lot of cleaning and barely got any sleep. It was an anxiety ridden month. I really hope the next month is better. I have some books to read next month that I‘m looking forward to at least.

I had been in the middle of taking a photo of a book and then Leo decided he was the true Star which of course he is. It‘s his world I‘m just living in it.

I finally got around to reading this even though I‘ve loved the movie so much since it first came out.
I got lucky and found a copy at goodwill that someone had already marked passages in and so I marked some of my own passages and will be loaning it to a friend soon 🖤

Went to book club tonight for The Strangers and grabbed the book for next month too.

#justfinished - it was interesting but I‘m really curious about her new book.
I read this one for book club and almost no one showed up and those who did didn‘t like it. You did have to suspend a lot of disbelief to read this one.
Also orange muffins are love.

I ended up with a second piece of free pie for my birthday (I somehow got two emails and I don‘t look free pie in the mouth - I put it into my mouth.).
I finished this for a upcoming book club and I really enjoyed it. It was my first from this author and I know a lot of people love her. What else should I read from her?

Today was my birthday (18th) and we went out to the Chinese buffet and then to see Jurassic World Dominion.
Then my shoe fell apart when I got home and harkening back my medical stuff my neck exploded - it had healed it I could tell it was filling with pus again. It would be great if my doctors could actually seem to get a handle on this. Happy birthday to me I guess 😕

marleed Happy Birthday and I hope your 18th year is one filled with healing! 4mo

This is a pan and a bail. I DNF‘d at about 60%. Was reading it for a book club. I thought it was going to be funnier. Or at least amusing and I found it to be neither. I felt like the author was trying too hard.
