Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To

Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To

In June, it feels like there’s soooooo much time left in the year to work towards my annual goals and stuff, but dang.  The end of the year really snuck up on me in 2018.  I was going strong with the 2018 Debut Authors Challenge, and then about halfway through the year it occurred to me that I should probably start reading the debuts exclusively until I caught up.  Then those took me right to the end of the year, with An Absolutely Remarkable Thing just squeaking by. This year, I’m not actively participating in the debut authors challenge (says the girl who’s read three […]

Mid-Year Freak Out Tag! (2018)

Mid-Year Freak Out Tag! (2018)

I really wanted to do this tag last year, and it just didn’t work out with my posting schedule.  This year, I bookmarked the tag from the lovely Lia @ Lost in a Story and I am ready to DO THIS THING. ARE YOU READY TO FREAK OUT?! The Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2018 Gosh this one is hard.  I’ve read a lot of really fantastic books so far this year and it’s so hard to pick JUST ONE.  I think I have to go with Tess of the Road, because it’s the one that spoke to me […]

February Wrap Up

February Wrap Up

February is always the fastest month of the year.  Maybe it’s because there’s so much going on, maybe it’s because it’s technically the shortest month… I don’t know!  But here we are again at the end of it! For all you beautiful people reading this, I hope you all had an amazing Valentine’s Day, Lunar New Year, President’s Day – the whole shebang.  And all the holidays I missed.  February is ripe with holidays! My bookishness wasn’t as ambitious this month as January, but I loved all the books I got through.  It was just slow going.  February hits me hard as […]

The 90s Kid Book Tag

The 90s Kid Book Tag

Guys I love book tags.  I may not do them very often, but they’re always so much fun.  I wanted to create my own!  I’ve looked high and low, but I haven’t found a 90s Kid Book Tag yet.  We 90s kids are hugely nostalgic, so this came as a bit of a surprise to me!  I had to make one. Originally, this tag had about 40 items (oops).  I’ve cut it way down to what I thought were the most interesting ones… and if you weren’t a 90s kid – don’t worry!  I’ve tried to explain some of our […]

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

There are a few kinds of books I get passionate about. Books with really amazing, beautiful writing. Books with incredible, loveable/hateable characters. Books I absolutely cannot predict what is this madness. Books with amazing relationship dynamics that make my heart flutter. I also think that we all have a few things that we love dearly that we wish we could find more of in books.  Things that we wish were written about a little more!  I have a bunch, and I’m actively seeking more so if you know any, please let me know in the comments so I can add […]
