The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood

I have long suspected that no one in my town reads - at least, not the same books I do anyway. Why do we need to purchase another Nora Roberts book when I haven‘t seen a new fantasy book on the shelves in months? But it worked out in my favor because today I waltzed in and got this and Nickel Boys right off the shelf with no wait list.

Lovesbooks87 I can't wait until mine comes tomorrow. Think I am going to save it for this weekend so I don't have to put it down if I don't want too! 3mo

I am driving a 16 foot truck from FL to WA to help my aunt move (she lives in WA but much of her stuff was in FL...). I‘m hoping we get to listen to the tagged audiobook today! She loves audiobooks, so it wasn‘t hard to figure out what we‘d do on our drive (once we were sick of carpool karaoke) - picture of TN!

Megabooks This is a great audiobook! Enjoy! 4mo

You guyssssss attempt #1 was pretty tasty. This is 1 cup milk (I used oat milk), 4 cookie scoops of butterscotch blondie ice cream, 4 scoops of vanilla caramel ice cream, 2 oz. vanilla vodka, 2 oz. butterscotch schnapps, and 4 Tbsp butterscotch instant pudding mix. Garnished with whipped cream, salted caramel drizzle (Smuckers brand), and gold sprinkles. A little watery, would halve the milk next time. Will try again tomorrow!

Megabooks Awesome!! Sounds really good!! 4mo
heikemarie @Megabooks could easily make it nonalcoholic, take out the liquor and up the milk a bit, maybe add another Tbsp pudding to amp up the flavor! 4mo

This book comes out September 17 and features a Latina human space captain trying to balance being blackmailed by one of the most powerful groups in the galaxy with telling the truth to her friends and crew, and keeping them and her ship safe. It is definitely a fun space romp! It was a bit ambitious in scale, so I think the 2nd will be better now that I‘m more familiar with the world. Pick!

It‘s been baby steps for #BFC - time to check in! I meditated every day ✔️ I yoga‘d 3/4 times (⬆️ from last week!) and I exercised 20/100 minutes again 😐). I hate working out so much! And the things that I think I would enjoy (CrossFit, kickboxing) cost 💰. But I will get there!! Onward and upward! Gandalf is trying to kill himself via box. Happy Sunday one and all!

Littens, I need your help! This is my current set up in my (very small but cozy) office. On the left is my bookshelf and TBR cart, and on the right you can see the corner of my desk. Here‘s the question: my dad gave me two small “floating bookshelves” for my birthday. Should I install them under the quote, or on that blank wall to the right?

hermyknee I think it would look cool if you kind of had them on both making a V shape in that corner? Have you ever seen The Great Interior Design Challenge (3 seasons on Netflix!) - that show always gives me decorating inspiration! 5mo
Butterfinger I vote for the blank wall. 5mo
hermyknee Oh I didn‘t see that you only have two - in that case they might be better on the same wall - I think they‘d look nice staggered under the quote ☺️ (edited) 5mo

LeahBergen How big are the shelves? Could you do one above the quote and one below? The books would look like they‘re illustrating the quote . 😄 5mo
LeahBergen And then buy more floaters for the blank wall. 😆 5mo
heikemarie They are one “stack” of books (new unit of measurement 😂) these are them (https://www.amazon.com/Umbra-Conceal-Floating-Bookshelf-Silver/dp/B000UO4KXY). I think I am going to need some grande sized art for that blank wall 🤔 5mo

Last week was off to a great start but will be marked as a learning week! I finished Becoming ✔️I meditated every day ✔️ I did yoga once ✖️ I worked out 20 minutes ✖️ so this week is all about figuring out how to fit in my yoga and workouts. Mentally it was a good week so that‘s a win! Picture of my book haul (I walked to the library!) to start off this week with energy! #bfc

wanderinglynn Great first week! 🙌🏻 5mo
mabell I had the same experience! Starting off, I was doing great, but then it became increasingly harder to meet my daily goal. If it was easy, it wouldn‘t be a “challenge”! 😅🤣 5mo

Starting my #BFCr2 journey by posting my goals. A few are weekly goals and my book goals are for the end of the six weeks. My audiobook this week is Becoming (Michelle Obama). My physical book is The Confessions of Frankie Langton. I deliberately avoided an eating goal due to a history of disordered eating, but I hope the cardio, strength, and yoga work will make healthy changes to my body!

Tadams4 That‘s so inspiring! 5mo
Clwojick Way to go! These look like fantastic goals! Do you do guided mediation, or just mediate on your own? I‘m new to it, so I‘ve been looking up podcasts. I‘ve found the “mini meditations” to be the easiest to get into! 🙌🏻 5mo

True Believer | Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks has been personally on my shit list for a while since he‘s an elitist prick with regard to romance novels. However, I had no idea he was this level of ugly, and so I think it‘s time to officially cancel him. #thankyounext

That-Bookish-Hiker What a terrible thing for anyone to do. I‘ve never read his stuff but I never wanted to. I love romance but for some reason I just couldn‘t bring myself to read it. I always thought he had a smug face lol. 6mo
heikemarie @That-Bookish-Hiker A punchable face! Yeah, he says he is NOT a romance writer since romance only has one theme, “the taming of a man,” (🙄) and so he is a LOVE STORY writer, which has universal themes and is in so many words real writing. I‘m alll set with my romance! 6mo

I loved this continuation of the story of the Wildes. Lady Boadicea, named after the warrior queen, presents a totally different face to the world. Afraid of being lumped in with her mother, who ran off with the help and left her children behind, she debuts for her season with modest and grace. But she's not fooling Lord Jeremy, a family friend who is staying at the castle while recovering from complications of his PTSD. Sexy, sweet, funny!

I enjoyed this book - an ambitious undertaking to connect history of “ideal“ women's body types to the introduction of black women through slavery into European society as the turning point of opinion on women's fatness. Provides a critical look at ways that men's contributions through art, society, &medicine continued to use norms as a way to degrade black women and oppress white women, and for white folk to continue to push white supremacy.

I couldn‘t do it. The writing style is so self-indulgently lofty without adding any beauty to the work. It‘s cringe-worthy. I didn‘t even make it past the part where some Canadian college students don‘t blink twice before traveling with some strangers to Narnia.

I am listening to this on audiobook while I clean and meal prep. The first narrator (woman) was fine but the second one sounds like he‘s trying to hard to be a 1929s gangster mixed with Wil Willis, the host of forged in fire. But the most suspicious version of him possible. It is disconcerting and it makes me think every new character introduced is a murderer because of how on edge he sounds... 😂
