  1. Sending you love. This is so sad to hear. He will be missed <3

  3. Just started Empire of Gold and I also loved the first two! Feels like classifc fantasy without being trope. Empire is currently going swimmingly quick! I think they're going to make a tv show of it 🥳
  4. I just read the second one actually. it was good! It's a continuation of the story and more about her little device (the name of which escapes me pre-coffee). it's not one of those stories that's going to take you through the day to day lives of students going through classes and what they ate for lunch if you know what I mean. but it kept me engaged and then disappointed again when it was over 😏 yes exactly. i liked it up to the point where she wanted me to know more about these authors and historians than I did. so while I'm glad I read it, I understand why people might call i
  5. hope you enjoy Binti! It's disappointingly short so just remember that and that there are two more in the series [edited: Looking back at your list I realized you've already read Binti haha! how'd you like it?] Read a YA nonfiction book – Between the World and Me (Read) Read a retelling of a classic of the canon, fairytale, or myth by an author of color – Her Body and Other Parties (ebook) Read a mystery where the victim(s) is not a woman – Unseen (Read) Read a graphic memoir – Fun Home (Read) Read a book about a natural disaster – Seveneves (kin
  6. 1. Read a YA nonfiction book – Between the World and Me (Read) 17. Read a sci-fi/fantasy novella (under 120 pages) – How the Marquis Got His Coat Back (Read) I really enjoyed Between the World and Me and it's very short. It definitely pulled at all my feels and taught me some things I didn't know. highly recommend quick read. I listened to the BBC radioplay of Marquis which was cute. A good way to come down after the other one. I'm currently reading Turtle All the Way Down which I didn't realize was YA, so it's got your typical high school romance aspects but I'm enjoying
  7. Oh good! I bought the first of the Broken Earth series in a used bookstore last year. Maybe I'll be able to get to the second and check off #5 as well. Not as far along as you but I have a good amount of these already acquired. I just have to finish what I'm currently reading...

  9. thanks @miss_marissa I will probably do 2020 but i can't guarantee how often I'll post! I still update my goodreads though https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/27753292-courtnie-marie i was really happy with 2019 despite a few bad ones. i found a lot of women and POC authors that write in genres i enjoy! Only one duplicate too. I'd recommend everything below EXCEPT 7-10, and 23 An epistolary novel or collection of letters - Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) (Read) An alternate history novel - The Underground Railroad (Read) A book by a woman and/or AOC (Aut
  10. Good gracious, have I changed or what? well, sure hope I have. That's growth right? I'll be here for the next challenge cycle just updating when i can and want to. for those previously following my challenges, we did sign up for Anytime Fitness and now need to catch up on sleep in order to get up early enough to go. Evening yoga has become harder with a long commute and visiting my dad. This weekend should be relaxing and probably emotional - I'm going to start cleaning out my dad's house. Next week i'll be traveling for work so let's see how much i can get my shit toge
  11. So I made the decision to take a break from NF and instagram. Work has been busy and my dad's status got changed to hospice care about 2 weeks ago. I've been focusing more time on myself and the people around me. Let's take a look at how I did: try two new gyms - tried 3 different ones and think I'll pick the Anytime. it's the only one with a DL platform! 1 morning workout/week - 14/5 well that was easy. might consider upping the length of at home BW workouts 1 evening yoga/week - 3/5 i'll have to come back to this habit later sleep: get an average of 7h30m - 5/5 week
  12. anything by Fredrik Backman I've read A Man Called Ove, My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry, and Britt-Marie Was Here and they were all delightful and hopeful
  13. Thank you everyone, I really am so glad to have a space where I learn to talk about my feelings and everyone is so supportive. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you <3
  14. It's friday of week 4 and I haven't updated you all at ALL! work has been hectic but not toooo stressful like a week or so back. we signed up for a 7 day pass at a nearby Anytime but haven't gone to get it yet (they make you come pick up the key which isn't available until 11am most days). sleep average is 7h46m so definitely still going strong there. I've gotten in movement on monday, tues, and wed mornings: half hour of yoga; 20 min walk; and 20 min bw circuit. we started packing for our ptown camping trip this morning. i haven't unpacked a box yet. things haven't bee
