2019: My Year in Books!

Posted January 8, 2020 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Good morning everyone!  How has the beginning of 2020 gone for everyone so far?  Has everyone stuck to their New Years Resolutions?  I’m rubbish at resolutions, if I’m being completely honest, but one of my big ones this year is to take better care of myself physically – sleep, hydration, diet, etc.  I mean, most people have that, right?  Here’s hoping that I can keep to it, and you all are doing amazingly on your resolutions as well! Every year, I do a bit of a review on my blog to look at all the reading I did in the […]

The #NotAll Book Tag

Posted November 14, 2019 in Tags // 0 Comments

I’m one of those people who absolutely generalizes when she complains about things.  Everything is the worst or I love everything about something.  It’s a bad habit, and one I want to try and overcome because stereotyping is horrible, whether it’s people or days of the week or books or whatever.  Today’s book tag totally brings that vibe. Thanks to the Orangutan Librarian for creating this #notall book tag!  It’s a fun idea, and I absolutely stole this from Holly @ Nut Free Nerd a little over a year ago.  Thanks, Holly for bringing this tag to my attention! #NotAll Cover Changes || […]

House-Hunting, ARC Reviews, & a SMALL HAUL WHO AM I EVEN? – The September Wrap Up

Posted September 30, 2019 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Good morning everyone!  September is swinging to a close and here in Massachusetts… we are fully immersed in autumn.  The leaves are beginning to go a little red-orange around the edges and the mornings have been crisp and cool.  When I leave for work in the mornings, I can smell woodsmoke and for me?  That’s the truest sign that fall have arrived. This is my favorite season – I thrive in fall.  I feel more alive September – November than I do the rest of the year and I try to live these months to my fullest… which means getting out […]

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games is such a happy re-read for me. I mean, come on.  This book has everything.  A realistically devised dystopian future.  Interesting characters with hidden depths!  There’s so much at stake and the balance of action and romance is just A++ good.  I love this trilogy.  The Hunger Games was the dystopia that pushed YA dystopia into the spotlight, and there’s a prequel coming!  What’s not to love? This marks my fifth time reading this book.  I am the type of reader who may remember the format, but will often forget details as I read.  I feel like every time […]
