July Wrap Up

Posted July 30, 2018 in Checking In // 28 Comments

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, […]

Why Were These Books on My TBR So Long?!

Why Were These Books on My TBR So Long?!

Guys, let my life be a lesson to you: pay attention to your TBR.

The topic this week is “Ten Book Recommendations for _______”.  Immediately, this read in my head as a Hogwarts house, so I’m going with SLYTHERINS*. (Wait, what?  I thought you were a Ravenclaw.  WHY SLYTHERIN?) Okay, well first of all, Slytherins need some love.  They get a pretty bad rap, what with Voldemort and all. SECONDLY. If we get really specific, I’m actually a Slytherclaw.  Oh yes, I who take so much pride in my Ravenclaw […]

  This book has been on my TBR list forever – the way my hardcopy reading is going, I would have never gotten to it.  Thank goodness for the audiobook!  Although I think I really would have liked it better without the narrator…. Characters ❤︎ I’ve bounced back and forth on whether I liked the characters or not in this book, and ultimately, it really came down to the character.  For a protagonist, Ruby’s not bad.  She definitely grows and evolves, and I love the fact she isn’t awesome at everything.  It’s immensely frustrating when a protagonist excels at everything.  The lead […]
