What.a.day. why is it only Monday? Work left me exhausted and the chair hurt my back so I'm curled up with a movie and my heating pad til I'm able to move and do some paperwork. My kindle app isnt working so the ARCs cant come through and I'm frustrated 😒😔 #ampersandmarch19 ; Tolkien reading day ( #currentread ) .
I love, love, LOVE Kirsty Logan’s fiction: lyrical, nautical, fairytale-inspired fantasy. I made a start on The Gloaming while we were down at Pt Elliot this weekend and I wish I could take it to the beach with me this morning and finish it off. If you haven’t read her earlier novel, The Gracekeepers, I highly recommend. 🧜♀️🌊

The Last Final Girl by Stephen Graham Jones
"Life in a slasher film is easy. You just have to know when to die.
Aerial View: A suburban town in Texas. Everyone's got an automatic garage door opener. All the kids jump off a perilous cliff into a shallow river as a rite of passage. The sheriff is a local celebrity. You know this town. You're from this town.
Zoom In: Homecoming princess, Lindsay. She's just barely escaped death at the hands of a brutal, sadistic murderer in a Michael Jackson mask. Up on the cliff, she was rescued by a horse and bravely defeated the killer, alone, bra-less. Her story is already a legend. She's this town's heroic final girl, their virgin angel.
Monster Vision: Halloween masks floating down that same river the kids jump into. But just as one slaughter is not enough for Billie Jean, our masked killer, one victory is not enough for Lindsay. Her high school is full of final girls, and she's not the only one who knows the rules of the game.
When Lindsay chooses a host of virgins, misfits, and former final girls to replace the slaughtered members of her original homecoming court, it's not just a fight for survival-it's a fight to become The Last Final Girl."

I asked you guys to pick my next read & this is what you picked!! I just have to say......you all have great taste in books because I am loving it so far😂
"One night in an isolated college town in the hills of Southern California, a first-year student stumbles into her dorm room, falls asleep—and doesn’t wake up. She sleeps through the morning, into the evening. Her roommate, Mei, cannot rouse her. Neither can the paramedics, nor the perplexed doctors at the hospital. When a second girl falls asleep, and then a third, Mei finds herself thrust together with an eccentric classmate as panic takes hold of the college and spreads to the town. A young couple tries to protect their newborn baby as the once-quiet streets descend into chaos. Two sisters turn to each other for comfort as their survivalist father prepares for disaster.
This is the final book in the two-book duet. Book one must be read first.
One man thinks I'm a saint.
The other thinks I'm a sinner.
One man lives in the public eye.
The other lurks in the shadows.
One man wants to use me for his own needs.
The other wants to use me for his revenge.
One man will get what's coming to him.
The other will get what he deserves.
They told me good girls get rewarded.
But I've been bad. Very bad.
Questo mese avevo promesso che avrei letto di più, e invece mi sono ritrovata a leggere ancor meno del mese precedente.
Ho passato, sto passando e passerò giornate intere seduta al microscopio, a imparare cose nuove e ad esercitarmi a diventare la persona che voglio essere. Ho dedicato, purtroppo, pochissimo tempo anche a voi e alle storie.
Mea culpa, non sono mai stata brava a gestire il mio tempo. ⏳
Vi lascio con una foto di me nel mio posto felice, concentrata e impacciata perché io le foto fighe non le so fare e se non mi metto 8 filtri non sono guardabile. Ci aggiorniamo presto, anzi, prestissimo: ho tante cose da dirvi sui miei ultimi acquisti. Vi voglio bene. 🖤
“Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.” The Hobbit 💜
Happy Monday! It’s spring break here which jeans I have 4 kids to keep happy and entertained. We got to go slime making and to see paw patrol in theatres. Now my house is quiet. My son is napping, my daughter is drawing and I’m reading The Hobbit out loud to her. It’s a perfect ending. ❤️
When I told her that I read it to her as a baby she said “well I’m 6 now read it again” so I guess that’s what we are doing! I will never complain about rereading The Hobbit though especially on Tolkien Reading Day For me it’s fills my soul the same way comfort food does! This bookmark is from @in.the.reads 🧡
QOTD - Do you have a comfort book? 💛

#CurrentRead This staff book recommendation comes from Emma, who’s loving The Girl He Used to Know!
This book centers around two can't-help-but-love-them characters and a story about first love and second chances that made my heart melt! You won't be able to put this book down, and you won't want it to end either. A must-read!
This book hits shelves on April 2nd, don’t miss it! 💖
The one topic I read more than anything: changing the brain/mind. Our brains, the control center of our lives and collectively, humanity...they’re malleable. They can change and be changed, with deliberate practice. They come free so you may not value it accurately. But know, anything you see and experience were created from these centers. When you learn to change it, you’ll learn how to change the world.
“You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day.” - The Light Between Oceans, by M. L. Stedman.
You know that feeling, when you finally get to a book you’ve been looking forward to for a long time, and then it’s not as amazing as you expected it to be? Well, that’s my current state with The Light Between Oceans in a nutshell.
When I heard about it a while ago, I was immediately game. Historical fiction and a heart-wrenching story between what’s right and what’s wrong. Plus that gorgeous cover. Plus it was made into a movie. Plus Michael Fassbender. Plus drool.
But the reality isn’t looking all that drool-worthy at the moment. It started off very good, I’ll give you that much, but I’m now almost halfway through it and I’m not nearly as invested as I want to be. The story itself is compelling, but the writing puts me off - it feels quite chopped and every time I feel like I’m starting to get a sense of the scene, it cuts into another. I don't want to dnf it, but I don't feel the usual urge to pick it up at every chance.
