My 1st Read-along!

Book: Her Wicked Marquess by Stacy Reid

Joined on 3/2/21. Facilitators and group were very nice and welcoming, excited to join the club πŸ‘πŸ½ Have previously read the prequel, My Darling Duke, so I thought it’d be easy to slide in… Boy was I wrong…

Day 2 (Wednesday) Chapters 10-15.

Thought it’d be a piece of cake being a re-read and having reading notes. Initially planned to read over my notes and see which comments correspond to which chapters. But I accidentally erased them…

Back to chapter 1. I planned to read to chapter 15. Before I commented I’d look over the nice chapter summaries on our group thread, kindly provided by one of the facilitators.

Encouraging messages on my thread from my fellow members! πŸ‘πŸ½ Still 3 chapters to reach daily goals to keep up with the read-along, but determined to participate tomorrow 😁

Day 4 (Thursday) Chapters 15-20

Finally all caught up! πŸ€— Feel I can finally join the conversation BUT had to premise that I was unfortunately behind on the thread. Felt good to post πŸ‘πŸ½ Finished the book! Rated it the same as the first time BUT the book club did help me better understand an aspect of the plot! πŸ˜‚

MED scare! 😱 Ran out of Xarelto… For anyone with experience with strokes, Xarelto is a blood thinner. It’s meant to thin my blood so a clot doesn’t form. I am hypercoagulable, meaning my blood spontaneously forms clots. I took a 15 mg tablet, usually I take 10 mg. A common side effect is bleeding 🩸, on 20 and 15 mg my nose would bleed. Fortunately, we found one. Not going to lie, the thought is scary. I’m on Xarelto for life.

Day 5 (Friday) Chapters 21 – Epilogue

I woke up to a nice suprise πŸ˜„ My godmother and goddaughter came over πŸ˜„ Then for other news…Caught up on thread. Find it’s easier to reply as comments come in. The comments by the book club help to better illustrate aspects of the plot. Enjoyed reading our thread! πŸ‘πŸ½ it had great discussion! πŸ€—

Watched the club’s IG live with the facilitators! Enjoyed it ❀️ Helps connect with its members and sheds light on the plot πŸ‘πŸ½ Also, nice to feel more familiar πŸ˜„ Marked the end of the read-along for me πŸ€—

My sister kindly picked up my new prescription of Xarelto today πŸ€—
