🙋♀️! My name is Precious! aka @listenwithprecious on IG & @precious’moments on yt 🤗 I am a Filipino-American 🇺🇸 stroke survivor 👏🏽👏🏽 UC Berkeley alum UNH alum RN ❤️ HR 🎧 audio listener! 👩🦽 I’ve only joined the book community this year (after watching Bridgerton on Netflix 😂😍)
Part of why I’m doing this blog is to chronicle my reading journey thru Romance-land! So I’d just like to say thank you 🙏🏾 for joining me!
P.S. Decided to blog since I’ve been reading a crazy amount, and I have thoughts… (I’ve got reading notes… 😂) why not keep myself more accountable? 😂 I just find reading belps my mood🤷🏽♀️ and gives me something to do 😂
So buckle up (click it or ticket 😂) and enjoy the ride!
Have PT today! I won’t go over it EVERY week, just touch on developers 🤗 Added an inner thigh stretch myself, my PT knows… With more STS and walking 🚶🏽♀️, my hip flexor muscles are tight and I feel it… Feels better after stretching!
I’m just a normally flexible girl, so I especially asked my PT to help stretch me out!
I expect PT to he more walking 🚶🏽♀️, STS, and standing for 1 minute (wrote this portion pre-PT) That’s what I need to work on and what I typically do… Walked 8x..
Did new exercise today! My PT calls it “The Shackle” or ball and chain 😂 Basically we tied a stretching strap on my ankle and looped 7 lbs. around it 😂
Today was my monthly virtual support group with my old in-patient OT group 👏🏽 May not know everyone YET but I just feel safe with this group 🤗 Feel like group members understand what it’s like…
We went around and introduced our selves 🤗 In addition we shared a new fact about ourselves 👏🏽 Bad with names, but trying to remember 1 at a time 😂 Today there were 16 of us 😂
We played a therapy form of Taboo, where each redundant answer is an additional rep (12 baseline) The group did a great job 👍🏽 For exercises, we did chest presses, shoulder presses, and bicep curls. We used our bodies, weights, cans, etc.
So I started this blog for fun (not to stress me out…) I’m a person who stresses myself out… So for transparency, there’ve been less posts throughout the week… Partly because reading my current read on ebook is taking longer… (i get sleepy 😴 on my side… on my bed 😂) I’ve been going through books quickly until now… but there WILL still be a life update Sunday ☀️ May not mean anything… 🤷🏽♀️ But for my own sanity… I’m sorry… Please bear with me! 🙏🏾
Changing Trigger Warnings to ContactWarnings from hence forth!
Just learned I have a content warning… realized it last week watching a movie… hospital scenes… they don’t anger 😡 me BUT make me cry 😢
As part of the Love In The Night Readathon I’m taking part in, Deal With The Demon is the group book. I’m also using it for the following bingo prompts: Read a demon novel 👿, Try a different format, and Read the group book. This would be my MOST efficient TBR for a readathon yet (if I can manage to read them all 😂)
Deal With The Demon is about Heidi, Drystan, and the Murphy’s. Drystan is only set to work for the Murphy’s for 4 weeks. Sounds like a house husband… I anticipate great fun 😂
I like the chapter lengths! Goes by quickly! 👏🏽
Glad Drystan came into the mix in this section! ❤️ Heidi’s kids name Drystan ❤️ Their initial reaction is not what I expected… 🤔
Love that Heidi considers Drystan as her “partner” ❤️👏🏽
Got lost and forgot to update 🤦♀️ They finally got intimate in this section 👏🏽
End of book 📖
Enjoyed this novella! 👏🏽 Wish it was longer! Never would have thought that was the case! Romance is all about a couple, but I loved the family dynamic! The romance was gradual and slow going, but when it got going, I was here for it 😂
I’m back for another PT session 👏🏽 Today was out a old NEW office, with so much room to walk! Exercises similar to last week’s- a lot of walking 🚶🏽♀️ and STS! Also did one-legged marchlike things that were hard…Noticed my legs are hard to move sometimes..
Not much of a sweat-er so I gauge the intensity of my PT on if I peri-sweat or not… Peri-sweating is when you don’t sweat but feel hot 🥵 (which is in my case 😂)
So The Love In The Night Readathon (#loveinthenight) is a paranoid romance Readathon I’m going to participate in!
It spans Monday to the following Monday (so 1 week!) Below I’ve attached my TBR for the readathon 🤗
I’ll probably follow the same blogging format that I’ve used for previous readathons (namely the day of the week, what I’m reading, what I’m doing, etc.)
3 books (Deal with the Demon by Juliette Cross, Deal with the Demon by Chace Verity, Vision Of Heat by Nalini Singh) are a little more higher priority because they hit my bingo prompts 😂 I’m going for blackout 😂
Reading order (due to format and bingo board prompts) will be Deal with the Demon, Slave To Sensation, Wolf Gone Wild, and Vision Of Heat. And that’s as far as I go 😂
Let the reading begin! Let the readathon begin! 👏🏽
Already currently reading Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas. Already on chapter 4, I’ll get to chapter 6 the switch to Deal with the Demon, so I can focus my reading better 🤗 I still intend to follow my book blog format, checking in on chapter 6, chapter 17, and end of book 📖.
Decided I’ll start all my paranormal (PRN) reads tomorrow 😂
First OFFICIAL day! Plan to start Deal with the Demon 🙌🏽👏🏽 The book looks fun! Spent yesterday finishing my chapter of Then Came You. And did some prep work for when I start a new book (set up my book template)… Been fiendishly reading 😈😂
👩⚕️’s appointment today! So thought 💭 of starting Slave To Sensation on audio! But the appointment was faster than I anticipated 👍🏽 Instead, found myself at a coffee shop (for the first time in a long time 👏🏽) Got to resume (and 🤞🏽 finish) Deal With The Demon.
Started Slave To Sensation on audio while at the park. Set up mr rereading blog 👏🏽 Read after my walk 🚶🏽♀️in the car 🚙 (needed to charge my phone 📱😂). Enjoy rereads, pick up on more!
FinishedDeal with the Demon👏🏽 My first FULL length novel read by my eyes 👀! StartingWolf Gone Wild. Set up my reading notes 📝 Might blog the book too 😋
Still reading Wolf Gone Wild… Reading with my eyes does take longer.. But I like that titles are more accessible to me! 😄
Didn’t do much reading… lived life 😂
Tried to get back on my kindle… think it froze… But I am watching a YT video with Juliette Cross in it! Might just access Kindle (app) on my phone 📱 🤔
Have a full day ahead so I’ll probably go back to Slave To Sensationalism.
Official end of readathon! Might extend 1 day… Hopefully I’ll finish Wolf Gone Wild… Still have an eventful day before us…walked the whole day on my walker 👏🏽
Continued reading Wolf Gone Wild 👏🏽 It’s definitely entertaining! Didn’t finish my book but its ok… Physically reading takes longer than listening 🤔
