    How I Plan On Spending My Vacation

    If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I started a little vacation at 2pm today. As a mother who works a full-time job, vacation time is very important to me. I learned from my mistake of my first vacation last year. We went to Disney. As much as I enjoyed Disney, that trip was stressful for us. AKA, DISNEY IS NOT CHEAP. I’ve decided to do something a little different with these four days I’ll have away from work. I’m having a stay-cation! If you don’t know what that is, it’s where you stay home for your vacation. My main goal of this vacation was to have some…

    What Am I Reading Wednesday?

    I see a lot of people do the WWW Wednesday posts. Personally, I’d like to just state what I’m reading. I feel like I can do that kind of post in a wrap up? I don’t know. I’m really just lazy and don’t want to have to type a lot when I know I could be reading. I’m also LAZY. With that lame introduction out of the way, let’s get to what book I’m reading. Title: The Priory Of The Orange Tree Author: Samantha Shannon Page Count: 848 Purchase: Amazon ~ Kindle ~ Book Depository Synopsis: A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens. The House…

    Five Books That Have Been Sitting On My TBR For The Longest Time

    As most of you know, TBR lists are never ending. Well, at least it seems like mine will never end. I have some books that have been sitting on my shelves since I started recollecting back in 2015. I decided to list five books that have been sitting on my TBR for a while. Maybe you guys can convince me to pick these books up a bit faster? Children Of Blood And Bone by Tomi Adeyemi: This book was one I was highly anticipating. It seems like such a good book. At this time, I’m trying to put my dislike toward the author aside. I try and not place how…

    Top Ten Tuesday // My Spring TBR

    I normally don’t do TBRs. I have an app that chooses what book I’m going to read next for me. I do this just to make sure it gives every book a fair chance. I always feel bad for the books that get left on my shelves for the longest time before I pick them up. I also always feel like if I have a TBR, I never follow it. These are the few books I know I’m going to be reading in the near future because I have a plan to finish them. 1. The Priory Of The Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon: I’m currently reading this behemoth. I…

    Book Blogger Insider // Book Tag!

      Happy Friday everyone! I’m currently trying to make sure I stay active on my blog because I seem to love it more than all of my other social media right now. I like talking and I love talking with you guys. I also prefer doing things on my computer instead of my phone. *cough cough* Instagram *cough cough* I decided to do a book tag today. It’s an easy tag. It’s not necessarily a “book” tag but more of a tag about myself. So now’s your chance to get to know me! (Even though you probably don’t care)   Where do you typically write you blog posts? I write…

    The Folk Of The Air Book Tag

    Well, if you know me, you’ll know that I love The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King. I love me some Jude and Cardan. I was tagged by Kay over at Hammock Of Books. I knew I had to do this tag and it’s taken me a bit to get to it seeing as I have switched my blog over again. I never know what I want. I’m still in the process of figuring out how I want my pictures to look and for them to match my theme. So, let’s just ignore that for right now. Rules: You must tag the original creator (Xandra @ Starry Sky Books) Spoilers…

    ThriftBooks // I Don’t Recommend!

    *EDIT* Yes, I do realize that I ordered from a used book store. The items I purchased did not come as they said they were supposed to. Of course, I’m going to be angry. I’m a book collector! I like my books in good condition! So, I decided to give ThriftBooks a go. I was pretty excited to see such cheap books! I really wish I would have read reviews before I did this. Oh boy, the disappointment. Out of the five books I ended up receiving, I was only happy with ONE of them. Just one. That’s not very good odds. This review is not based on the customer…

    Weekly Recap // 03/04 – 03/10

    Away From The Blog: I feel like this week went by too fast. I feel like I didn’t get anything done besides work. I hardly got any reading done, which I am ashamed of. I started two amazing books this week and I’m honestly about two chapters in for each book. Oops. I’m really trying to get out of the house more. I’m wanting to take more bookish photos outdoors instead of just in front of my bookshelves. I just haven’t been feeling my content lately. Why is why I completely started my blog over. I wanted to make everything feel a bit more personal. We went out and took…

    Family Time // Why It’s Important To Me

    As we all know, juggling a family and full-time job can be quite stressful. I’ve been a mom for almost five years, and I still feel like I fail almost every single day. I try my best and it never seems like it’s enough. Marcel obviously doesn’t think this. I do. Marcel is grateful for all of the things we’re able to do for him and I love him for that. As a four-year-old, I feel like Marcel is very understanding. Ever since he was a baby, he just understood that mommy and daddy needed to go to work. He has never cried when we left. He will even tell…
