And perfect timing because I just finished a different book today.

Found out yesterday that I have a sinus infection AND an ear infection. Thankfully after my bronchitis cleared up 🙄. I got some antibiotics so fingers crossed I'm feeling better quick.

The Oregon Coast | Mark Hoy, John Maher
post image

I came to the Oregon coast to convalesce. But since I'm not a fancy lady who can live in a hotel for 6 months, I stayed a couple days. I don't really feel any better physically. But will you look at that view?!

Zelma Beautiful. I grew up close to the east coast in Florida and have only been out west once. So different and pretty. (edited) 2w
zezeki That is beautiful! 2w
Crazeedi I think I could heal in this place of beauty. I hope you are healing too. 6 months in a hotel room would be hard 2w

Out of the 49 books I have read so far this year, 38 of them were written by women. And I didn't even do that on purpose!
This book will be number 39.

This was me on Sunday! I sat on my patio and read the tagged book and got sunburned. And barely noticed because I was into it. Parts were a little more emotional than my normal taste but the characters and story are great and I would recommend.

Not necessarily book related but the reason I haven't been posting much: my friend likes to do half marathons but hurt her knee so can't run. She asked me if I would walk it with her and I said yes. It's on Sunday! I've been spending all my time walking (with a friend so no audio books either). I'm starting to freak out a little.

Also I'm watching Game of Thrones and I'm terrified they are making me remember how much I like certain characters just in time for them to die 😱😳😭 or maybe they will all live happily ever after?

mdm139 Last nights episode made me cry. All the characters in one place, preparing to fight a battle knowing many will die fighting. They were all saying good bye to each other but also saying goodbye to us. 7mo

First book of the road trip done!
I got this book specifically because I have a teenager who has mental health issues. I wanted to read it first to see if would be something he would like. I read some reviews that said it's boring but I did not think that at all. I really enjoyed the story.

jpmcwisemorgan I liked this one, in part because it made me think of the other side of Buffy. 8mo

The Haunting of Hill House | Shirley Jackson
post image

Ok. I know I'm so late posting this, but did anyone watch The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix? The ending wrecked me. I was bawling. In part because of the song they played at the end (If I go, I'm Goin by Gregory Alan Isakov). I never even read this book and tend not to watch scary shows. But damn, you guys. It is scary but more than anything it's so sad.

vivastory I thought it was an excellent adaptation. Vastly different from the book, Mike Flanagan really took the source material & made his own special version. Loved it. 9mo

There's no way to really talk about this book without giving it all away. So I won't. But wow. Unsettling and creepy.
I really liked it. I know it has kind of mixed reviews on Goodreads and here so you'll have to decide if it's for you.

I have 3 flavors right now: Earl Grey, Hot Cinnamon Sunset (yum!), and Vanilla Comoro. Black teas are usually my favorites. I don't typically like fruity teas.

Also my mother-in-law is really into tea lately so I got her a Harney & Sons sampler for Christmas. Their tea is so good!
