Scored this signed copy with some AMAZING cover art, so pumped to reread the series.
😻 thank you so much, @Emiller !! Thank you so much for the lovely gifts. These books sound perfect! An art themed mystery and a Halloween-y one: you're covering all my bases. And the socks are the coziest! #letsgetcozy #bookmail
Paper Source has a deal on custom embossers! I've had a couple of people ask about it here on etsy, I got one as a gift a long time ago. Fantastic bookish gift 💖
1. Best Aug book: When Did You See Her Last?
2. Do you make your bed: yes but not well. Just sorta straighten out the comforter.
3. Today's high temp: 72*F! It's 64 now, it's been wonderfully cool.
4. Pirates or Ninjas: Pirates. 🌊
Finished this one here at our camp site! We're in Straits State Park, in Michigan's UP right next to the Mackinac Bridge.
Lemony Snicket always brings it, so I knew it was a solid choice to bring with me. This one didn't disappoint.
1. The couch 💖
4. I think trilogies
5. Third! Third! Third!
8. Usually colorful but it's gotta be well done
9. Plot but characters are what I'll care about most
10. My new rule is I have to read as many women as men
12. Multiple. Many.
15. Also both 💖
Oh. My. God.
This was AMAZING! I can't believe how good it was. I downloaded it on #netgalley mostly for the cover, I never imagined it would affect me so deeply. But it did.
It was beautifully written and beautifully drawn. And I don't even know what I'll do till vol. 2.
You're all hitting double digits on your #24in48 and I'm crawling into bed after twelve straight hours of party prep: my little brother's grad party is tomorrow and I'm exhausted. But I'll at least get a little reading in, and after the party tomorrow I will retreat and hibernate with books, cat, and leftover salsa (homemade from our garden 💖)
1. @bookriot ! Maybe the #getbooked podcast (which I listen to religiously)
2. Goodreads & stacks around my home. It's not a great system.
3. Ebooks for convenience & because it's comfortable to read laying down. Physical because I like how they look on shelves 💖

6. I don't know
7. A Red Herring Without Mustard
8. Want by Cindy Pon
9. The Bean Trees?
10. I'm not hungry, but I could eat
1. Jane Eyre 😞
2. The manga classics adaptations come to mind--as an art teacher I think they're fantastic, but they get a lot of shit on goodreads.
3. The Summer I Turned Pretty (I haaaated that book. A friend lent it to me and I barely kept my cool.)
4. Romance. I don't know where to start!
5. Mr. Rochester
6. I can't think of one!

🔥Standalone or Series: Series
🔥Last book you bought: Final Girls
🔥First book that comes to mind: Girl with All the Gifts
🔥Film that's better than the book: Catching Fire
I read this in college for a course and paid truly the minimum of attention to it, as I had so much going on...maybe it is time for a reread!
Big day: toured and applied to live in an (amazing) apartment in an area I've been wanting to move to. Part of the allure is their fantastic library. (The apartment has a huge balcony and a working fireplace, in a metropolitan area?? And I can afford it and it allows cats?? I'm pumped)

Where my dream house would be: On some windy, seaside cliffs
Favorite accessory: Layers of scarves
Favorite show: 30 Rock
Last movie watched in theaters: Wonder Woman
Currently reading: Redefining Realness, A Red Herring Without Mustard
It is NOTHING like the cover or the blurb would lead you to believe. It's gritty (for middle grade), and fascinating, and so page turner-y. I SO recommend it, especially for this audible deal!
!!! I'm so ready!
Confirmed and shipped my box! Poisonwood Bible is one of my favorite books of all time, and I haven't owned a copy till now. And the coloring book is a freebie I stumbled onto! #botm
Oh my gosh. This book had me hooked from start to finish. There are a few things nagging at me about it, but a full review will come later. For now I'm just recovering from this psychologically fascinating, crazy-well-narrated audiobook (and wondering what I'll listen to on the last day of my 80-mile commute tomorrow.)
My first #paperstreetbooks subscription box was a home run, but I open the letter to find it's their last! At least I snuck in one. (Spoiler comment contains what's in the box, in case anyone gets it and hasn't received yet!)
SOS: I need sticker removal tips!
Doing some book storage shopping in preparation to move later this summer! It figures that this is even more exciting to me than looking at actual apartments 😘
#readingwomenmonth prompt #womenofcolor and #riotgrams prompt #booksthatmadeyoucry collide! It's been a while since I read a memoir, and I'm so glad I picked this one up. She speaks so candidly and thoughtfully about the hardships she's faced, always pausing to explain what they've taught her and the things she's learned since: she's kind with the way she educates her audience. I admire her more with every page, she's a wonderful role model.
