    Oh no poor you ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I would like this but I feel like that send that wrong sentiment.

  2. Aimer Boyz January 17, 2018 / 9:53 pm

    Oh, no. That’s awful. I’m wishing you a speedy recovery and an early spring ๐Ÿ™‚

    First ouch! Second, i suggest load the ereader up! Less stress to flip pages and change books.

    You poor girl! I broke my ankle five years ago I totally feel your pain! I hope you make a very quick recovery!! HUGS!!

  5. Becky F. January 17, 2018 / 10:19 pm

    Ack! That’s pretty gross and probably feels a lot worse! Speedy recovery!

    Ouch! That looks really painful!!! If you like a funny sci-fi read try ‘Starship Grifters’ by Robert Kroese! Really light hearted and an amazing audio book if you’re not in the mood for reading! Or ‘Dark matter’ by Blake crouch I’d you want something trippy, ‘the hating game’ by Sally Thorne if you want something lighthearted and romantic, ‘Eleanor Oliphant is completely’ fine by Gail Honeyman is a wonderful read that slowly unfolds a very deep and laugh out loud story…. I could go on if you want! Lol! I hope you find something you like! Let me know if there’s a certain genre you’re leaning towards!! ๐Ÿ˜„

    • Angela January 17, 2018 / 10:59 pm

      Thanks for the book ideas!

  7. Lilyn G January 17, 2018 / 10:30 pm

    Yeeeeooouch! You poor thing!

  8. Varida P&R January 17, 2018 / 10:47 pm

    ๐Ÿ˜ฑ So sorry that happened to you! Would a book cheer you up? Iโ€™d be willing to give you a copy of one of ours. I know you like several different genres. Do you read sci-fi or fantasy? I do have a novella that could be considered romance, as well.
    -Suzanne Hagelin, Varida P&R

    • Angela January 17, 2018 / 11:01 pm

      Thanks Suzanne! Fantasy would be awesome!

      • Varida P&R January 17, 2018 / 11:15 pm

        Is an ebook ok or do you prefer paper?

      • Angela January 17, 2018 / 11:38 pm

        Brook is fine!

      • Varida P&R January 18, 2018 / 12:51 pm

        If you send me an email address to suzanne at varida.com I will send you a link for a free ebook of one of our fantasy books.

    Major ouch! I did something similar 20 years ago, but it was in Florida and summertime. I jumped out the back door of an RV that was headed up north the next day to make sure it was ready to go, and I jumped wrong and broke my ankle. Then I slipped on my steps with the crutches a couple of weeks later and had to have surgery. I hope you don’t need that and just heal well and easy. Enjoy your convalescence, be very careful while on crutches! Get lots of rest and reading ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also from the wonderful mitten state, and broke the same ankle lol. I do feel your pain. Keep us posted how you are getting along!

    • Angela January 17, 2018 / 11:03 pm

      Not looking forward to crutches that’s for sure!

  10. nzfnmblog January 18, 2018 / 1:02 am

    Ouch! Hope it heals fast!

  11. kbsdesigns January 18, 2018 / 1:03 am

    Have you looked into any of the books by Elise Kova or Garth Nix?

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 2:59 am

      I have never heard of either but will look them up and see what they write. Thanks!

  12. brmaycock January 18, 2018 / 1:15 am

    The guilt I felt ‘liking’ this post! Sorry about your foot and take care

  13. Elle January 18, 2018 / 2:56 am

    Oh no! I hope they gave you some good pain killers! Iโ€™ve just finished reading the first book in the Kingmaker trilogy by Amanda Bouchet. Definitely worth checking out.

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 2:59 am

      Thanks Elle, I will definitely put it on my list!

  14. astronimasclutter January 18, 2018 / 6:03 am

    Ouch! Wishing you a speedy recovery and hope surgery goes well. I’m stuck on the book ideas, but if I think of one I’ll let you know. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. lorraineambers January 18, 2018 / 6:15 am

    OMG, that is awful. Sending lots of hugs and love.

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 6:16 am

      Hoping they come in soon to tell me what time surgery is going to be and what exactly they are going to do. Hopefully no pins will be necessary ๐Ÿ˜”

      • lorraineambers January 18, 2018 / 1:28 pm

        Iโ€™ll keep my fingers crossed for you. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

  16. Judi Moore January 18, 2018 / 7:04 am

    How awful for you! I have never seen an ankle that shape.

    Book suggestions – er … own trumpet blowing time: do you like satire? If so you might like to try my new novel set in an English university in 1985. It’s so new the paperback isn’t out just yet, but it’s available on Kindle. Or I can send you a file if you think you’ll be doing any reviewing while your ankle’s healing.

    Hope the painkillers are a good trip!

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 7:13 am

      I was quite surprised myself when I literally watched and heard it break… I keep replaying it over and again in my head ๐Ÿ˜”

      I love satire and if you want to send me a file I can get it read and reviewed. Thanks a bunch!!!

  17. The Sassy Redhead Book Reviews January 18, 2018 / 7:50 am

    OH NO! I am so sorry. I know how it is. I live in Vermont and we have the same problems. My husband always reminds me as I walk out the door in the mornings, “be careful on the walk way and the bottom step”. I hope you heal quickly. I just read the New York Crime King Series, by Skyla Madi, great read if you like intense Alpha males and independent heroines. Best of luck to you.

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 7:52 am

      Thanks for the kind words! I will look that series up for sure!

  18. marethabotha2013 January 18, 2018 / 8:13 am

    Iโ€™m so sorry to see the state of your ankle. I didnโ€™t like the post, but I appreciate that you told us what happened. I hope you get well soon!

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 8:44 am

      Thanks so much! I appreciate the kind words!

  19. writerdove January 18, 2018 / 8:17 am

    OMG that looks soooo painful! I am so sorry, gutted for you. Try to rest xx

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 8:43 am

      Thanks Rachel, just biding my time until surgery and hopefully relief…

    I clicked “like” so I could comment, but I DON’T like–not one bit! My prayers are with you for a complete and speedy recovery. Soooo sorry! If you want a pretty big read, but a compelling one, try BEARTOWN. I just reviewed it recently on http://powerfulwomenreaders.wordpress.com

    • Angela January 18, 2018 / 4:45 pm

      Thank you Rae I will definitely check it out!

    • Angela January 19, 2018 / 4:24 am

      Thanks Sam! You can send any info to booksandopinions@gmail.com

      I only have phone access right now and emailing is rather difficult this way ๐Ÿ˜‚

      • Sam Westhoek January 19, 2018 / 4:28 am


        Send a text

        Iโ€™ll arrange for copies of my Amazon titles to reach you.

        Thanks Sam. Message has been sent!

  25. Varida P&R January 19, 2018 / 12:18 pm

    I noticed you had contact info posted so I sent you a copy of “The Venomsword” just now, as discussed before. I hope you recover quickly and have plenty to read!

    • Angela January 19, 2018 / 12:35 pm

      Thanks Suzanne! I really appreciate it and will get started on it very soon!

    • Angela January 26, 2018 / 6:09 pm

      Thanks TaQuanda! It has been quite the adjustment ๐Ÿ˜”

  26. disperser January 27, 2018 / 8:21 pm

    Well, that doesn’t look good.

    Not sure about blaming the steps as I presume it has more to do with Winter but if taking a sledgehammer to them is cathartic, well, go for it.

    Seriously, best wishes for a complete recovery. While I don’t have personal experience with those kinds of breaks, I followed another person who had a similar break and had a time of it. It’s one of the worst injuries one can have.

    As for reading suggestions . . . well, you seem to have a bunch, at least enough to keep you occupied for a while.

    Take care.

  27. niyogisandip January 28, 2018 / 3:59 am

    Hi Angela, while your condition seems too painful and I pray for your quick recovery, I have something for you to read which might help you in this condition. I wrote this when my niece had a fracture in her wrist. Can I send it through whatsapp? My no is +91 7433829448. Please send a message. ( note: My english is not very good, please bear with it )

    • Angela January 28, 2018 / 5:02 am

      I do not have WhatsApp. Is it in some type of word or PDF file? You can email me at booksandopinions@gmail.com with any other questions. Thanks!

      • niyogisandip January 28, 2018 / 6:02 am

        I have sent it through email.

  28. Heather Tasker January 29, 2018 / 1:56 pm

    Yowza! That looks incredibly painful! Hope you’re healing well. -fellow Michigander

    • Angela January 29, 2018 / 3:08 pm

      Thanks Heather! In some serious pain right now having just gotten bandages removed and an air cast put on.

      • Judi Moore January 29, 2018 / 8:04 pm

        Hang in there. You’re on the mend. Honest. Even though it hurts like hell. You will feel better soon.

      • Angela January 30, 2018 / 2:14 am

        Thanks Judi! Each time I get to a turning point the pain gets cranked up a few notches… I know it means I’m healing, but cripe!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜‚

      • Heather Tasker January 30, 2018 / 7:08 am

        Oh man… I hope it lets up quickly!

      • Angela January 30, 2018 / 7:11 am

        Me too๐Ÿ˜” a good few hours of sound sleep would be amazing right now!
