As the saying goes "Until love strikes, you might catch up on your reading". I wanted to create an update on my reading challenge, which is going slooooowly but steadily and even write a little update on me. Cause I am freakin out frustrated  From health issues, to emotional issues, to personal issues, it's a rollercoaster here in my back alley, more or less like anybody else's life, but right now I'm good and stable and full of happy hugs for you my dears :tighthug: :love:

So my reading challenge is at the moment looking something like this:

And I decided to add something else to this list:

:bulletpurple: An audiobook

Right now I am juggling between Shift by Hugh Howey (the friggin awesome sequel to Wool) - work book, Five children and It - kindle book - and a book about OCD - couch book. And Lady Chatterley's Lover, my most favorite of all time and companion book in times of gloom, which I mostly read during weekends when I feel hapless. 

Please take good care of yourselves! :blowkiss:
