I just got the sweetest #bookish gift from reader & friend Lynn Postlewait

I just got the sweetest #bookish gift from reader & friend Lynn Postlewait – this T that says: Between The Pages of a Book Is a Lovely Place To Be! I heartily agree. I love bookish & #writerly things!

It was such good timing, too. Yesterday I had a really rough day, harder than I’ve had in a while, severe depression and despair that periodically comes up from trauma and exhaustion and worry. Today’s been better but I’m still struggling with depression.

But tonight I am going to celebrate with two neighbors on my getting a literary agent who I’m really excited about (who is also excited about me and my work), and this bookish t-shirt is perfect for that. It also helps lift my spirits. We all need to know that we are cared about. I hope you know that you are. And we all need to know that things will get better. Sometimes we just need little reminders of that. Today this is mine.

I just received my first ever Uppercase box

I just received my first ever Uppercase box (a YA monthly subscription box) that my friend and reader Lynn Postlewait so generously gave me (3 months!) as a gift for Christmas and I’m so excited to dive in! This case includes a signed hardcover copy of THE GILDED WOLVES by Roshani Chokshi who is a NY Times bestselling author, a Gilded Wolves character card, a Harry Potter Quidditch notebook, and a little packet of tea from Wick & Fable. Such delightful but goodies! I love books and bookish stuff.

The hardcover book came packed in a little fabric bag which I so appreciated because I like to keep my books in good shape.

I needed another great ya fantasy to dive into so I’m excited to read this. Yay for YA books and good friends!

I LOVE this powerful #BelieveSurvivors #bookart post by @yawednesdays

I LOVE this powerful #BelieveSurvivors #bookart post by @yawednesdays that I found via @jessicaspotswood. Speaking truth is powerful, and books help create positive change with those truths even more. They can increase empathy and compassion, help us know we are not alone. And they can also help us escape our own pain.

Via @yawednesdays:
・・・
“When a woman risks
her place, her very life to speak
a truth the world despises?
Believe her. Always.” — @jmcwrites Blood, Water, Paint

This week has been a difficult mental health week for me. Victims have been put on trial while the accused have been self-righteous and arrogant, insulated by their privilege. I have sought the comfort of the written word and every single book in this shot has spoken to me in a different way. I hope these recs will help someone else find their voice.

This has been a very abstract attempt at #StackingUpSaturday, but we all know I have trouble playing by the rules.
someone else find their voice.
