I went a little swap crazy this year, but no one ever buys me books so I feel it‘s justified 😆 and I‘m really looking forward to all 3 of these!

Tagged! It‘s a #blameitonlitsy pick
Tough one but maybe raspberries?
I‘m really hoping for another book in Bailey Cattrell‘s Enchanted Garden mysteries, and also looking forward to the final(?) Aurora Cycle book.
Today I am grateful for so many things including: looking forward to starting a new job (after 8+ years in this company!!), yoga and beer plans with a friend tomorrow, and fall on the horizon.

Thanks for the tag @Sharpeipup -it‘s been a second Monday sort of Tuesday so I needed some fun 😉
1- I love books set in places I‘ve been - Maine and New Orleans come to mind as favorites.
2 - I tend to read a lot of romance, typically about females, but I don‘t really have a preference. I do hate when an author if one gender writes another gender badly though!

🌟No late night snacking!
🌟Try a new/different veggie or fruit every week

Here‘s my BFC21 January check-in...
Goals: daily movement and meditation, reading my own shelves more.
Movement: slowly making my way thru my “21 day” Pilates challenge - I‘m not doing it every day but I‘m still noticing strength gains! I‘ve walked or practiced yoga or most days in addition to Pilates (or instead of!), only missed one day.
Meditation daily ✔️ (rec Medito app, I like it!)
Books off my shelf: 1 done, 2 in progress

mcipher I‘ve also been weighing myself relatively consistently, drinking more water, and starting most days with a healthy breakfast (my nutritionist goals from December continuing on) 👍 10mo

This first week I have meditated and moved my body every day (my 2 general fitness goals). I didn‘t set a solid book goal, but I did clean up my currently-reading and started a few new books, including the tagged. I also got a healthy meal prep cookbook and set up Everyplate delivery to help us stop eating so much takeout. Feeling good!

Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView !!
1) I wanted to get the tagged from the library and waited... and waited... hopefully a hold that comes in for January...
2) I just feel like it was a weird reading year. Inconsistent. I got distracted constantly and put down a LOT of books and read super slow. So I guess I regret not having more focus and a better handle in my TBR. I am a mood reader and 2020 was a MOOD 🤣🤣

I think I finally got (momentarily) tired of a steady comfort diet of cozy mystery and romance and I‘m looking for more substance; so these are my potential Sunday afternoon brain food picks.

Non-bookish post, but my sister‘s dog got hit by a car this weekend. She‘s hanging in there, but her care is racking up some crazy bills and we made a GoFundMe to help support her stay at Tufts including some upcoming surgery as soon as she‘s stable enough. No pressure obviously but I know there are some dog lovers here - and even if you just keep her in your thoughts it‘s appreciated.

Missing my Litsy friends! How is everyone? This summer has been so bonkers but finally feels like it‘s settling down into a more manageable rhythm (case in point: 20 stolen minutes on the porch during a work day for a chocolate cherry spinach smoothie - with a little cold brew!, kitty pats, and a thriller). Happiest of Fridays ya‘ll! 🥰
