    End Of The Year Book Tag:

    Where has this year gone? I swear, as I get older the years go by faster. This was such a wonderful book/reading year for me. I’m so happy with all the things I’ve accomplished this year. I got rid of so many books this year. Something I thought I would never do. If I didn’t, I’d have over 1,000 books in our tiny apartment. As much as my book loving heart would love to fill my home with tons of books, it’s just not logical. I met my Goodreads goal! That’s what I’m most excited about. I’m so freaking happy. My goal was 50 books for the year and I’m…

    Weekly Recap: 11/19 – 11/25

    AWAY FROM THE BLOG As you all may know, this week was Thanksgiving. There’s nothing better than getting to spend time with family. We drove about an hour and a half to Sarasota to visit family that we don’t really get to see throughout the year. It was amazing. We met so many new people and my son was enjoying all the attention from everyone.  I’m also very happy to say that we’ve got most of our Christmas shopping done for our son. Black Friday may be hectic, but it’s well worth it. Video games are not cheap! I hope you all had a nice Holiday and that it was…

    Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m Grateful For

    I figured, I can do this one. It’s a freebie and I’m sure there’s a decent amount of books I’ve read that I’m grateful for. With Thanksgiving around the corner and everyone will be giving thanks, I decided I’m going to give thanks to these amazing books that I’ve read and adored. Some of these books are really important to me in many ways. I’ll get descriptive with each book that I post. With that being said, here are the books that I’m grateful for. Also, I’m not going to include Harry Potter in this list. Yes, I am grateful for Harry Potter. Beyond grateful. I just think it’s something…

    Mental Health Read:

    Eliza And Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia has great anxiety representation. I related to how Eliza feels when anxiety does decide it wants to attack. It was just a great read all together. Go read it. Now. I haven’t read Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow yet. Scrolling through Goodreads, I’ve seen many high ratings and recommendations for this book. I’m not entirely sure which mental health disorder this book covers and I don’t know if it’s done well. Maybe I’ll see soon. What mental health books do you recommend?

    Currently Reading:

    The Last Wish Of Sasha Cade by Cheyanne Young. I am really loving this book. It’s so heart wrenching. The first chapter made me cry! I’m dying to finish it and see how it ends. I also want this book to last forever. I’m also reading And I Darken by Kiersten White. It’s taking me a little while to get through this one. I just don’t understand where this book is supposed to be going. Nothing about it makes sense to me. Please tell me the ending is good? What are you currently reading? *Edit: Here’s the joy about posting things ahead of time and just scheduling them. I finished…

    Favorite Book Trope:

    I really love the “friends to lovers” trope. I really enjoy the build up to something that you know is going to be amazing.  Emergency Contact is a great example of this trope. The build up takes up a good majority of the book and I just love that. I also really wish that it wasn’t so slow. In Emergency Contact, you don’t really get to see Penny and Sam’s romantic relationship. I need more! What is your favorite book trope?

    Not Going To Tumblr?

    I’m not going to Tumblr? I’m having a crisis with my blogging and I don’t know what to do about it. I just really hate that there isn’t an app for Blogger. It’s quite frustrating. I want to change how I do some posts though. As you can see, I already have my Christmas vibes going on in my photos. That’s one thing that’ll be different for this holiday season. What do you guys think? Also, I will be doing a lot more random postings. I’m going to post random quotes that I find while reading. I may even post what I post on Instagram here as well. I plan…

    Would You Rather… Spooky Edition. Happy Halloween!!

    Happy Halloween everyone! Here’s a nice little spooky post for the day. I can’t believe it’s already Halloween. Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner. I’m too excited for the holidays and I’m wanting them to hurry up and get here! With all that being said, let’s get into these spooky would you rathers!______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thrillers or Supernatural(s): Ugh… I guess this really just depends on my mood. Some days I really like things that put that thrill in me and some days I like things like The Vampire Diaries where there’s a lot of supernatural things. Ummmmm. I’m just going to go with supernatural. I watch/read more with supernatural…

    Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Need To Read Before 2018 Ends

    Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This weeks topic was a Halloween/Creepy freebie. Well, I have a Halloween-type post that I have scheduled for tomorrow so I’ve decided to stray away from the creepy vibes. There are many books I need to read before this year is done with so I thought I would share with you guys! I know there’s no way in hell I’ll be able to…

    Top Five Tuesday: Top 5 Books With Magic

    Happy Birthday to me! Today I am celebrating my 25th year of life. I was very kindly given the day off. I thought I was going to be able to spend my day reading Kingdom of Ash, but that unfortunately isn’t happening until maybe later this week. With that being said, my progress with Tower of Dawn isn’t going so well. I really cannot get into this book! I hate Chaol so much! I’m going to try and power through most of it today. I’m about 41% through it right now. Maybe I can finish by the time I’m able to buy KoA. Let’s just hop right into the top…
