My 10 Most Recent Acquisitions! (Because Clearly I Can’t Stop)

My 10 Most Recent Acquisitions! (Because Clearly I Can’t Stop)

Christmas and the general winter months tend to add a lot of books to my bookshelf. I don’t do it on purpose.  I just have zero chill.  I end up spoiling myself for Christmas, plus there’s my annual SantaThing haul which is always an unexpected surprise.  I have a running list of “to buy” titles based on audiobooks I’ve read and want to own in hardcopy… that certainly contributes.  I also jump on the Audible bandwagon every January, when the monthly subscription is less than $10, and I hold until the end of the trial period. So, needless to say, […]

My Absolute Favorite Ten Books of 2019!

My Absolute Favorite Ten Books of 2019!

New Years Eve is a day where many people take time to reflect on the year that has passed and all the things have done, the people we’ve spent time with, the places we’ve been… and in the case of book bloggers, the books we’ve read. Of course, this year is a big one, because not only is today the end of a year, but it’s an end of a decade.  I’m going to keep it simple and just keep it to 2019, but this has been a crazy decade!  Over the course of the last ten years, I’ve graduated […]

7 Ways My Reading Habits Have Changed – #TopTenTuesday

7 Ways My Reading Habits Have Changed – #TopTenTuesday

Once upon time, I was a straight-out, epic fantasy girl.  I’d take the occasional vampire story but my recreational books needed to fall strictly within a certain category – fantasy.  Give me magic users and dragons and the chosen one and I would lose myself in the incredible world building. And all of that is great, by the way?  I still love fantasy with all my heart and soul and I read it so often.  But I have grown as a reader over the last several years.  I read more things, and in different ways…. 1.) I read contemporary. One […]

10 Fabulous Bookmarks from Boxes & Artists

10 Fabulous Bookmarks from Boxes & Artists

Almost exactly two years ago, I did a little piece showing off some of the bookmarks that I had accumulated.  Goodness gracious, y’all – my bookmark collection has exploded in the last couple years!  I used to have less than ten – these days, I’ve gotten a lot.  Between subscription boxes and a couple impulse buys of designs I really liked… I have way more bookmarks than I know what to do with. In fact, I’ve go so many that I needed to find a storage solution! While I’ve received three different bookmark tins/boxes from subscription boxes, my favorite storage solution […]

10 Books Outside of my Comfort Zone (That I Really Liked!) – #TopTenTuesday

10 Books Outside of my Comfort Zone (That I Really Liked!) – #TopTenTuesday

I have a pretty specific set of books I like to read: YA Fantasy.  Sometimes I will shift from one of these – Adult Fantasy! YA Contemporary!  But my favorite is still YA Fantasy.  However, shifting far enough out of this genre to get into something really different?  So rare.  A book really need to catch my attention.  In fact? Half the time, even if it does, I’ll add it to my TBR and when it gets to the front of the line, I’ll say “eh no”. But I keep adding these books because – you never know!  Sometimes, I really, really like […]

Seven Books on Preorder I’m Dying to Read – #TopTenTuesday

Seven Books on Preorder I’m Dying to Read – #TopTenTuesday

Good morning everybody and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday!  It’s been a few weeks since I participated in one of these!  I actually just moved my To Buy wishlists from Goodreads to Amazon and Thriftbooks wishlists, so I’ve been thinking about the things I want to add to my library! That said, rather than go into the books that I want to buy, I actually want to share the ones that I have on pre-order!  My “To Buy” lists are made up of books I’ve listened to on audiobook and want to get a hardcopy of.  Most of those, […]
