My #TBR for #OwlCrateAThon #readathon is a bit ambitious, but I have plenty of catch-up reading to do.
.

?#ReadingChallenges:
.
.
? "Of Fire & Stars" is the unread #OwlCrate book I've had the longest
.
.
?"Sleepy Hallow," which was a bonus book from a past box, is the shortest unread Owl Crate book I have.

Let's see how many of these I can read in two weeks

Reviewsbylola I‘m back to ordering only from them. I got 30 books for $140 from the sale and there were some really amazing books in there!! I love seeing what gems I can find on their site. 11mo

Thanks to @CrowCAH for the tag!
1. I tend to wander around when I read. I end up in strange places.
2. I'm trying to use bookmarks. I often use what's nearby.
3. Depends on the book
4. Sometimes
5. Usually music
6. Several, always several
7. Everywhere
8. Usually silently, but I'll stop and read amazing parts out loud to myself.
9. No
10. Keep it like new
11. No, but I'll use sticky notes
12. I tag anyone who would like to join in ☺️

I connected deeply with this book. It deals so beautifully with mental illness and grief. It feels very personal, very visceral, very honest and very hopeful.

This is so heartbreaking and such and accurate description of how grief changes us.
