This book is adorable. I mean that in the best possible way. It is a fantasy story because it has some magic, but it is also about unconventional family and love and trust and hope and it is just adorable.

ozma.of.oz That sounds like exactly what I need right now! 2y

I'm so bored! I've been trying to read and workout and keep somewhat of a normal schedule.
I work at a school and we are closed at least until April 28th. I have a senior who is so mad to be home and so worried about graduation.
One day at a time, right?

I've actually been reading lots of books this month. Which is kind of weird because I'm busier than usual. So I'm not sure how that math works out exactly, but I'll just go with it.

Tianarose I just finished midnight riot today! Great book. 2y
lesliemarie @Tianarose Yay! That's good to know. I walked by it in the bookstore and thought it is something I might like, but wasn't sure. 2y

The last few years of goodreads reading challenges. I'm a fast reader but I don't always have the time. Also, I tend to read long books. I set my number at 75 for this year.

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) 2y

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?

GypsyKat I said to my husband after last nights episode that this is the last time we‘ll see all our favorite characters alive. I‘m not ready! 😭 3y
lesliemarie @GypsyKat ugh me either! 3y
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. 3y

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. 3y
