#YourStory @nu-bibliophile
1. Mostly barbies & dolls (I was obsessed with the non-blond barbies).
2. Yes
3. She-Ra Princess of Power
4. I don't remember. Maybe Dunkaroos??
5. No hot lunch. We never had that option at my school, other than the odd hot dog or pizza day.
6. Mostly school bus. Though I walked for the first 3 years, until we moved.

1. I was on the wrestling team in high school. I am afraid of squirrels. As a child I had an iguana as a pet.
2. Confessions of a Shopaholic
3. Not yet
4. Too cold. I am often too hot. It makes me feel gross and sweaty. I find cold is easier to manage.

These were fun! Thanks @Alora

It's been a weekend of ups and downs. My baby turned 2 yesterday, and this afternoon my 6- year old isn't feeling so hot. Hopefully this evening goes ok 🤞For now, we're curled up watching tv and reading. #toomuchexcitement #lazysundayafternoon

Sitting in front of my #TBRshelf trying to decide #WhatToReadNext. I have a bunch of holds coming in from the library any day, and I have a feeling they are going to show all at the same time. So, chances are whatever I pick will have to be set aside when those come in. Choices, choices...

My reading this morning is a little on the dry side. We're starting a program for my oldest and his anxiety. I have to read up on my portion before we start his portion after school. It's going to be a long process, but I'm really hoping it helps him.

I made a huge dent in the cleaning while my little guy was napping! Now I'm sitting down with some lunch and rewarding myself with a chapter or two. I'm really enjoying this one so far (about 100 pages in), though I already have my suspicions about what is happening. #LunchTimeReading

Trying to find an interesting audiobook on either Hoopla or Overdrive today. I have tons of #audiocleaning to do. It's Thanksgiving weekend here this weekend and I'm hosting, but my house is currently a wreck. Need to find something to keep me going!

Mdargusch I love Liane Moriarty audiobooks. They always make me laugh out loud. And the narrator is excellent. 1mo

Zoo City | Lauren Beukes
Pickpick

I'm so unsure about how to rate this book. I was enthralled right off the bat, but then about 1/4 of the way in, things seemed to wane. Between 1/2 and 3/4 through, it picked up again and I couldn't put it down. The end left me wanting to know more. It was definitely an intriguing world, and I haven't read too many books set in South Africa, so the setting felt new to me. Overall, I'd say it was a pick.

1. 64/75 Almost there!
2. My husband broke my toe on our first date.
3. 🤷‍♀️ It's more about the lyrics and how I feel than about the genre. Probably more pop and rock than other genres in my playlists though.
4. The broken toe happened 19 years ago in January.

It has been a week for the books! We were without power for almost 4 days after the storm, and further cell/internet issues during and after. The last couple of days have been crazy busy trying to play catch up with chores that went undone during our power outage. All I want to do is #CurlUpAndRead. Last load of laundry just went in, so I'm grabbing 15 minutes before I have to pick up the eldest boy. Hope everyone's had a stellar week!

I'm reading by oil lamp this evening, while everyone else sleeps around me in the livingroom. Hurricane Dorian is still wreaking its havoc outside, the power hasbeen out since mid-afternoon, and we distracted the boys with a family sleep over in the livingroom. I've had lots of time to read today, and I'm not ready to put it down yet. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! #WhenTheTitleSuitsTheWeather

Grabbing a little mommy time before I need to get supper ready. I've been anxiously awaiting this book to come in from the library, and the timing couldn't have been better.

I've decided to flip back and forth between this and The Devourers. I'm feeling really unfocused with my reading the last week or two, so rather than forcing myself to read one book, I'm giving myself room to float around. It's not my usual way of doing things, but these 2 books are likely different enough that I won't confuse the plots. #InspectorGamache #StartingANewRead #WildAndCrazySaturdayNight
