The second half of August was far more successful than the first half! I read a bit of everything here. Some YA, Fantasy/SF, romance, non-fiction, and a classic novel. A Phoenix First Must Burn edited by Patrice Caldwell started off the second portion of the month in a very middle of the road style. I... Continue Reading →
August Wrap-up Part 1
This shouldn't be too long, even in two parts as I didn't have a TON to say about the books I read in August, which happens sometimes! The first part of August was definitely more on the 'meh' side of things unfortunately. The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang was good. I would say it's probably... Continue Reading →
July Wrap-Up Pt. 1
I made an effort this month to fit in a lot of books I've been putting off. Partially to continue to educate myself on difficult topics and partially because I after the lackluster month of June I knew I wanted some things to make me think and feel. I really read some great books because... Continue Reading →
May Wrap-up Part 2
The second part of May was... romance heavy so gird your loins (see what I did there?). First Comes Scandal by Julia Quin was my first read and honestly I found it... lukewarm? I can barely remember anything about it and I certainly couldn't tell you much more than the summary will give you. So... Continue Reading →
May Wrap-up – Part One
I felt like May was… a gaping hole in my memory. The month flew by and I barely remember a lot of what I did and read. June has been, well we all know how much of a mess June has been, but May was a special kind of strange for me. Books I should... Continue Reading →
April Wrap-Up Part 2
The second half of April was just slow. I read quite a few graphic novels but the novel reading slowed down. For a few weeks in there I didn’t have a dedicated eReader, which honestly bummed me out (till my hubby treated me to a new one) and I just didn’t have a lot of... Continue Reading →
April Wrap-up Part 1
April has not been a very successful month (for me) as far as reading goes. There is unfortunately a lot going on right now and I ran into a couple of road blocks along the way that really threw me off. But this sort of thing happens, and we just keep moving. So... Continue Reading →
#SHReads 17 – TBR for the month!
At this point even I'm like 'Wtf, how many readathons and goals and tbrs can I make in a month?'. But you know what? ONWARD WITH THE FOOLISHNESS! But for real, this readathon is one I've been really excited about for months, since Winx mentioned it. I had intended to purchase quite a few books... Continue Reading →
November Reading Wrap up!
I did alright this past month! Not the best, all things considered, but I did get a lot of good books in. I also didn’t manage to shake the need for spooky books – so just heads up. I was clearly looking for horror that could be beaten when faced with what felt like unbeatable... Continue Reading →
Short Fiction Roundup!
November has been a shitty month. October was the busiest month of the year for us. If my husband I weren’t at work we at the doctor office, or with family who were in the doctor’s office, or taking care of bank paperwork… etc. I’m surprised our cats still know who we are. November... Continue Reading →
