  This book is so well-loved.  It’s one of the few that my friends who read have strongly recommended to me… friends outside the blogosphere.  Here in the book blogging world, An Ember in the Ashes is so beloved and highly suggested.  I was sure it was going to have incredible characters and so much adventure and that I was going to love it.  I never thought for a moment I would feel otherwise. I feel otherwise now. I’m sorry, I’m so, so sorry guys… but I just couldn’t to get into it.  I’ve had this book on my TBR for a […]

Impulsively Saturday morning, I decided to participate in a readathon.

I don’t think that I’ve seen any unboxings for Nerdy Post on anyone’s blog?  As far as swag boxes go, I don’t think I’ve overstitching to say that it’s one of the more popular, reliable ones.  Even though it’s a bookish box that doesn’t contain a book, I think it’s a pretty good box if you’re interested in the theme and are looking for some fun swag items for Instagram, or to spruce up your personal space. Nerdy Post has a few different levels of boxes, depending on what you’d like included.  The cost of these boxes range from $9.95 […]

I know I usually say “wow that month went by so fast”, but seriously, y’all, July?  July was a long long month.  I struggled to balance reading with writing with blogging with life with health stuff and sunshine and just everything and I am ready for autumn.  This is how you know I’m a New Englander – I’m ready for fall now. Yes? Yes. July wasn’t so bad – just busy!  I don’t like to be busy – I love me some weekends to sit at home and relish in doing nothing.  It’s the best.  August is gonna be busy too, […]
