    Weekly Recap // 04/15 – 04/21

    To those who celebrate it, happy Easter! This week was a stressful one for me due to my work schedule. I didn’t get a lot of reading done as I was not home a lot. I did manage to get through season two of Game Of Thrones though! I’m aware that I could have been reading while watching GOT but I mean, come on. I have a lot to get caught up on. This week was also my seventh anniversary with my one and only. I cannot believe seven years has come and gone so fast. I’m very lucky to have someone like Julian who supports everything I do. He’s…

    WWW Wednesday // 04/17/2019

    WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking On a World of Words. It’s a meme that takes place every Wednesday, where the posters discuss 3 Ws: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Currently Reading: Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (38%): I can honestly say that I’m not enjoying this book as much as I enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy. It’s taking me a little bit to get into this book and even longer to form a relationship with any of the characters. I’m not entirely sure I’ll be picking up Crooked Kingdom right after this one. Recently Finished: The Truth…

    Top Ten Tuesday // Rainy Day Reads

    I’m not the type of person to read books based off the weather. I just never see the point. I live in Florida. It’s either really hot or it’s raining. I’m just going to list ten books that I think you should read. These are probably going to be gloomy books because that’s how I’m feeling right now. Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: I’m actually still in the process of reading this book. So far, it seems like the kind of gloomy read one would enjoy on a rainy day. I’m enjoying it for the most part, I just really wish it would pick up the pace. Three Dark…

    Going On A Book Buying Ban

    As I’m sure all of you know, buying books can be addictive. As of right now, I own close to 700 books. I maybe have read 30% of these books. That’s the problem with buying books.

    Reading Wrap Up // March 2019

    I wouldn’t necessarily say that my reading month was great this month. I completed four books. I basically read The Priory Of The Orange Tree all month and I still managed to not finish it. I’m still working on that one. It’s a massive book and I’m honestly getting a sore shoulder from carrying it around in my purse all the time. I need to finish it! On the bright side, I did enjoy everything I read this month! I’ve been having a wonderful reading year so far. I think out of all the books I’ve read so far, I only sort of disliked two books. That’s really freaking awesome.…
