Happy-Go-Lucky | David Sedaris
post image

I've been a fan of Sedaris since my teens (I still vividly remember reading Naked with tears streaming down my face from laughter) and I'm enjoying this upcoming release! His stories about his father are always so razor sharp and the ones that I remember most.

Another #BlameitonLitsy library hold! The cover is gorgeous and I was immediately pulled in to the story. Can't wait to devour as much as possible this evening 🤩

This is a #BlameitonLitsy library hold! The story drew me in, there was a slight drag for me randomly about a quarter in, but today I've been devouring it and think I'll be done before bed. This is my first Kate Quinn and it won't be my last!

Man, Fuck This House | Brian Asman

It always seems like a great idea until demo begins... 😬

Karisa Looks inspiring! Beautiful color scheme! 6d
Tamra Fabulously fresh! I would need someone to make decisions for me - I‘d be stuck and never get anything done. 6d
kyraleseberg @Karisa @Tamra Thank you both! Trying to focus on the step by step to get there because the clutter and surprises that demolition can bring makes my anxiety kick in 😩 6d
Karisa @kyraleseberg I hear you! It always gets worse before it gets better with these types of house projects. If it turns out even half as cool as your inspo photos, it‘ll be worth it! 💗 6d

Me, trying to keep a writing schedule going after my creative writing class ended at the beginning of December 😭
I hadn't written in years and this short class was the kick I needed to be motivated and inspired... and I haven't written a word since the final class 😒 hoping it's just the holiday chaos and I'll find my way back to the page again in 2022 🤞

Meh, creepy but with no character development and barely digging into the backstory of the crumbling mansion, this one didn't live up to the hype for me.

This is a quirky book that knocks me out with so many random truths and then leaves me scratching my head with peculiarity that doesn't work for me at times.
