    Weekly Recap: 12/10 – 12/16

    AWAY FROM THE BLOG As Christmas gets closer, I get busier. The work week was pretty nice and slow. I was able to go out and do more things this week. I wasn’t just confined to my house. Which means, I didn’t finish reading any books this week.  We took our little man to see Santa on Saturday. Boy, was he excited. My son loves Santa. He’s never once cried when he looked at him. Even as a baby! Here’s some pictures that I took: With Christmas being one week away, I’m not going to guarantee that I have posts coming. I’m almost done with A Gathering Of Shadows and…

    A to Z Book Tag ~ 2018

    I’ve been really slacking with my blog. I just haven’t really been feeling it, you know? I always want to make the best blog I can have and I never end up doing any of the things I want to do. Does anyone else have this issue? I could have sworn I did a tag like this back in 2016 but I think I did something entirely different. I don’t remember. But I’m doing this while listening to A Gathering Of Shadows because I’m set on finishing this series before the end of this year! This is going to be entirely based on 2018. A // An Author You’ve Read…

    Weekly Recap: 12/3 – 12/9

    AWAY FROM THE BLOG This week has been super busy. I’ve worked a lot and didn’t really have time to do too much. We did some shopping on Friday night after I got off work. We got some Christmas presents and we also discovered this amazing store called Ollie’s. They have so many cheap books. You’ll see that down below.  We went to Lights of Lakeland last night. Basically, it’s Christmas land. It was so unbelievably crowded. We didn’t stay too long but we did have fun. Other than that, we didn’t really do too much. I totally ate a shit ton of Taco Bell last night too. No regrets.…

    Book Blogger Insider Tag:

    Hey guys, I’m coming at you today with a fun little book tag. I’m trying to do at least one random blog post a week that’s not a book review or haul or anything like that. I didn’t particularly want to do the Top Ten Tuesday topic for the week soooo I’m bringing you a tag. I’m trying to read as much as I can this month. I’ve already finished two books and I’m working on my third. With that being said, I’m going to hurry up and do this tag and get to reading. I have done this post in the past but I decided to do it again.…

    Weekly Recap: 11/26 – 12/2

    AWAY FROM THE BLOG It’s finally December! The best month of the year. I’m looking forward to so many thing this month and I can’t wait to share them with all of you. As for last week, I didn’t do too much. I worked late a lot this week and it’s hard to go out and get anything done when I have to work late.  As you can see, I’ve made changes to my blog… again. That was my main focus for this week. I wanted everything to look clean and simple. I didn’t want to do the crazy filters on my photos anymore. I’m really liking the white minimal…

    November Reading Wrap Up:

    This was a pretty decent reading month for me. I read my first graphic novel, Speak. I was surprised with how quick I read it. Less than four hours! I also read the behemoth, Kingdom of Ash. BOY, I never thought I was going to finish that thing. I ended up finishing the month with some contemporaries. Honestly, after KoA, I didn’t want to jump back into a fantasy right after I just finished this amazing series. As you can also see throughout this month, I’ve had a lot of changes done to everything. I’ve changed my photos. A lot. I’ve changed my theme. A lot. I’m having a crisis…

Now blood is the only thing that can wash it clean. Julia is trapped inside the Blue as the Nobles fight over the few humans who are still alive.
