Finally got my hands on this and I. LOVED. IT. I loved Twinkle and the transformation she goes through and just everything about this book in general. I will never not live Sandhya Menon, I think. 😬💜💜💜

Me: I‘m going to finish charts before I read anything today.
Also me: flies through 70% of this book without finishing a single chart.
Holy cats, this book is ah-mazing! There‘d better be more in the works because I need more!!!

This book was so hard to put down but also hard to read. As a resident physician, I understand some of the things that must have been going through these providers‘ minds. But never having been in a crisis situation, I can‘t fathom the chaos and helplessness that must have been pervasive. If nothing else, I have certainly learned a lot about my particular feelings regarding the topics discussed in these pages. Very excellent and thought-provoking.

This was beautifully written. No other way to put it. I enjoyed her essays about the first year of her youngest child‘s life and explorations of motherhood and womanhood.

So, 👆🏽 that was not at all what I was expecting when I hit the ‘About the Author‘ page. I thought this book was an interesting look at the border and found it very eye opening. Although I know it‘s not a comprehensive look, it is not something I know a whole lot about, so I feel like I learned quite a bit from his experiences.

Baby and I just finished our first chapter of Harry Potter together (starting a little later than I wanted to, but probably too early for the parasite to really hear anything at 15 weeks 😂🤰🏽). This was our favorite illustration.

Angels' Blood | Nalini Singh

Read this because I was looking for romance with an alpha-male trope (it‘s my fave) and his is what popped up. It was okay. I felt like some of the chemistry was forced and I don‘t know that I necessarily bought the whole angel as a superhuman sub species thing. I‘m used to JR Ward, and this was just a tad different for me.

I knew that I was going to enjoy this because, obviously, Julie Murphy. What I didn‘t expect was to relate to both of these girls and their awkward, self-conscious, self-doubting selves and learn some things about myself in the process. I loved Millie and Callie and I loved everything about their story.

I have been absent for a while - a product of burn out at work but also the tiredness of first trimester. Books and reading have not been as appealing to me lately for those same reasons. I‘m taking some time to regroup and heal mentally and dove into this last night. I love it. (And, yes, I‘m one of those monsters that underlines in books 😊) 💜

Alfoster You go girl! Whatever you need😍!👏👏 2y
tracy_anne8 Im currently pregnant with twins and I was the same way my first trimester. No interest in reading and completly exhausted. That fatigue is no joke and no one understands it until they experience it. Definitely take the time you need right now. The great thing about books is they will be there when you come back to them.😊 2y
stargazerblue49 @tracy_anne8 Congrats on the twins! I didn‘t realize I could be more tired than I already was as a resident doctor, but I‘m sure that I‘ll find out more about being tired in the coming months! 😂 2y
tracy_anne8 @stargazerblue49 Oh my you are busy! Naps! 😆I recommend lots of naps if possible! 2y
stargazerblue49 @tracy_anne8 I try, but naps usually get me into trouble when I try to sleep at night! One day, I‘ll figure it out! 2y

As someone who was dumped a week before senior prom, conversations like this hit me in the feels. I loved everything about this book. Leah, while sometimes very negative, was also very relatable. I love the Simon-verse. I don‘t know if Becky will keep writing in it, but I am certainly willing to keep reading it. 💜💜💜

April has been a weird month. I haven‘t felt a lot like reading. I haven‘t had a lot of time to read. And I‘ve not known what I wanted to read when the opportunity came. But I did manage to make it slowly and surely through The Birchbark House and liked it so much that I ordered the next 3 and Erdrich‘s motherhood memoir from Birchbark Books. I just don‘t know what to read next 😂😂😂

Tamra I‘m looking forward to Birchbark House. 😊 2y

I will never look at the moon the same way again. Things went about as well as can be expected for a main character in an Andy Weir novel. I laughed, I snorted, I was baffled and befuddled by the science (as much of a nerd as I am, physics is not my forte, y‘all). Jazz was one of the best heroines I‘ve read in a long time - blunt, funny, curses like a sailor... I was just here for all of it. 💜💜💜

I got home late from my shift, but I needed to finish this one. My heart is broken. I didn‘t ugly cry, but I‘m pretty sure that‘s because I‘m emotionally numb from work today. Just... I don‘t even have words right now. And my reading experience was enhanced by whoever owned my copy before who had made notes in the margins and who I suspect was an immigrant herself. So good. I can‘t even. 💔💔💔

Whenever the attack on the Twin Towers is mentioned in books, I always start to feel a little breathless and a little heart ache. It takes me right back to that day that I somehow remember so vividly even though it started out so ordinary. It‘s strange how memory works like that sometimes. This one took me by surprise. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸

CouronneDhiver I hear you... I‘m Canadian but I remember being completely traumatized and stunned by the events that day. I‘ll never forget it as long as I live. 2y
tournevis I had left my house very early to go to my office to write a lecture for, of all things, my American History course, and had been oblivious, until around 10am when I heard my colleagues outside my door talking, stressed, and peaked out of my door. Suffice it to say that my lecture thay day veared in a very different direction. 2y
stargazerblue49 @tournevis @CouronneDhiver I didn‘t know that anything was going on until I walked into my classroom and everyone‘s eyes were glued to the television. They made us turn it off because you could see people jumping from the buildings. I remember having a class discussion about it. And when I got home, my parents couldn‘t do anything but watch the news. It was like the whole world stopped that day and for the next few days after. 2y

I think it‘s safe to say that I liked this (total book insomnia last night because of it and overslept for clinic!), but there are a couple of things that have bothered me. Because of the abrupt format change in the middle, I feel like we are missing out on what could very well be some interesting character building opportunities. Also, none of the girls were really all that likable 🤷🏽‍♀️ Still enjoyed the read tho!

So, my uterus hates me today (which, honestly, makes the whole last week make so much more sense), but I‘ve just been feeling like, as a (resident) doctor, I‘m expected to act a certain way all the time which is sooo not who I am at all. It‘s frustrating and sometimes gets me into a little trouble, but I really like being my quirky self. Rules/expectations just suck sometimes. Thanks for being amazing, my Litten friends!

Excuse the poor picture quality, but this is me in the mostly empty theatre this afternoon to see Every Day. Honestly, it was okay - but I felt like they really toned down the LGBTQ intimacy from the book in favor of more hetero pairings for A with Rhiannon. While the casting/movie itself felt inclusive, I still felt that there was an emphasis on making A be a cis male when being intimate with Rhiannon. I still cried y‘all.
