September Wrap-Up

September Wrap-Up

Well that month went by fast. Hi everyone, and welcome to my September Wrap Up… conveniently located in October!  As I was trying to schedule out my month, I realized a bit too late that September was filled… oops!  I ended up rearranging a lot of my scheduling but good news?  I have a calendar for the rest of the year now!  And that’s super important, because I’ve got reviews scheduled all the way out into November… oops? Warning:  This post features NO GIFs.  My computer is being super laggy and dumb and it kept crashing while I was trying […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

  So many things have changed at Hogwarts. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a complete turnaround from the angsty nightmare that was Order of the Phoenix.  There are EMOTIONS and it is BEAUTIFUL and character development happens and I LOVE IT. Half-Blood Prince is my favorite book after Prisoner of Azkaban.  There is so much going on, and a BIG adventure is starting, and THINGS ARE GETTING REALLY REALLY REAL.  I could go on and on about how this book is delicious and how Rowling is my Queen.  How the writing is perfect, the characters are perfect, the story is perfect, […]

The Monstrous, Half-Blood, Ruby Princess – #IMWAYR

The Monstrous, Half-Blood, Ruby Princess – #IMWAYR

So I’ve been reading a lot more books than I usually do, and I’m quite proud of myself. I think it’s because I have stumbled into the section of my TBR with a bunch of MG, short, and light and fluffy novels.  But that’s cool – I’m really enjoying them.  Percy Jackson was WONDERFUL and I’m nearly done with Ruby Red right now, and YUM.  How have I not gotten to these before? #shame I’m going to start with the older books first, then move on to the newer ones, yes?  Yes. So REJECTED PRINCESSES. This is the book that […]

Happy Birthday Harry Potter! (The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag)

Happy Birthday Harry Potter! (The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag)

Happy 37th* birthday, Harry Potter! *37, because in 2014 Rowling revealed he was almost 34.  I’M ON TOP OF THIS STUFF, GUYS! Harry Potter has been one of the biggest literary influences of my life.  Harry gave me something to talk about to friends, Harry taught me grammar, Harry taught me to fight for what I believe in.  This is a story a lot of people have shared, so I’ll spare the HARRY POTTER IS MY LIFE GUYZ! sappy story, because I bet a lot of you share it. In honor of Harry Potter’s birthday this year (which is also […]

July Wrap Up

July Wrap Up

July is gone, and I’m posting this today so I can focus on Harry Potter’s birthday tomorrow.  I swear, I’m not a Harry Potter nerd. LIES! #Ravenclaw4Life I’ve had mixed feelings about this month’s books.  There’ve been a couple of DNFs, but on the other hand there were books that I really loved!  It was a high/low month and nothing inbetween. THE JULY HAUL I had a good run at Barnes & Noble earlier in the month, and I’m beginning to clear out my audible credits as well. JULY READS WRITING LIFE In a touch of insanity, I decided to […]

The Strange Case of the Rejected Lady & the Half-Blood Myth – #IMWAYR

The Strange Case of the Rejected Lady & the Half-Blood Myth – #IMWAYR

It’s Monday, What are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date.  It’s a great way to catch up on all the literary ins-and-outs of the previous week, and see what everyone is up to.  Check out this week’s linkup! It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these!  My entry “Confessions” pretty much sums up my absence this time…. I do apologize, for anyone reading, mais voila!  Here I am again! I’ve actually had a very productive week as I’ve delved back into my audiobooks and finished an ARC I won back in January (*guilt*).  The highlight of my […]
