January Wrap Up

2018 is off to a roaring start, n’est pas, mes chers?  I’ve not been subtle about how much 2017 stunk for me, so I’m absolutely thrilled with the way January has unwound so far.  I hope everyone else has had a good start, too! The Monthly Book Haul I ended up with quite a good haul this month – after a slow December on NetGalley, I ended up being granted 5 books.  I timed my requests so that there’s nothing immediate, so reading them shouldn’t be a challenge (The Phantom Tree releases in August!). I believe there’s a lot of little ones […]

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 […]

Bonjour my darling phoenixes.  I hope you’re all having a delightful September thusfar.  Up here in New England we’ve seen a little rain and a lot of humidity, but nothing to really complain about compared to the rest of the world.  My love goes out to everyone who has been affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma… I can’t imagine living through that kind of weather and am constantly impressed by the strength and compassion of people joining together in a crisis. What’s New In the Bookish World? September has been a really lovely book month so far – honestly, it […]

Welcome Ladies & Gents, to the August Wrap Up! August has been a busy month!  For me, there’s been vacations and birthdays and a trip to the dentist (BLECH), and a solar eclipse!  I am so so proud of myself because I have posted every day this month!  I know a lot of people are heading back to school within a week, if they haven’t already.  Can you believe summer’s almost over?  SHEESH.  I think that we all have had a crazy month, so let’s get down to it!  EXCITING THINGS ARE AFOOT, MY PHOENIX FRIENDS. No, not that kind […]

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 […]
