My 2019 Reading Planner; Plotting out my Reading like a Writer

Before I even start a new year I'm already thinking of how I'm going to organize for the next one, with life seeming to get crazier the end of a year makes you wonder how you can strive to keep the next one more under control.  Last year I stumbled upon pictures of this amazing...

My Anticipated Reads of 2019!

There's nothing like a new year to start thinking about new books, boy, we love new books!  To start off the buying frenzy I've built my list of most anticipated reads (not really in order, I'm too indecisive for that).  I love getting excited for the big releases of the year, and finding out what...

Books Read in December

I thought November had been busy, but December came in like a serious wrecking ball.  I don't think I've struggled as much as I have this month any time before.  Between getting ready for the holiday and work keeping me late my reading time disappeared.  I'm hoping next year I'll get all of this under...

Series I’ve finished In 2018!!

I'm still shocked at how many books and series I've managed to read this year.  Typically, I read around 40 books on average, so nearing the 60 book mark feels extra special, and likely a unique achievement (maybe I might hit 50 next year??).  For now, here's a list of the series/stand alones I've read. ...

Favorite Books of 2018; A Top Ten

So, to start this off this list is as of the date it's published, so books I love after this date unfortunately are out of the running.  Another thing to note, I do list series, but that is because of the fact that I binge read them, so I had to include it as a... Continue Reading →

The Christmas Eve Book Tag

I love this time of year, besides the cold (which has been really COLD), I love the family time, the Christmas lights/decorations, and just the whole vibe that seems to envelop every community.  It's like the world just becomes this different place.  To celebrate I'm sharing the Christmas Eve Book Tag (yes, a whole week...

Mime Order by Samantha Shannon Review

To start this off, I'm going to make it clear that this is a second book in the series known as the Bone Season.  If you weren't aware this is your chance to look at my (really short) review for book one HERE (The Bone Season).  With that done, here's the quick breakdown: In book...

December TBR

The End of the Year is here!  Somehow, with reading challenges that statement has two different meanings to me; happiness, and panic.  On one hand, I am really excited for Christmas and stocking up on new books, and on the other I am rushing to finish up my Goodreads Challenge.  This month's TBR sort of...

Book Recommendations I’m Thankful For

There are some books that get recommended to you, and while you were skeptical about them you realized between page one and the end that it had become a favorite.  That doesn't always happen, in fact I'd say most recommendations don't turn out like that.  Most times you enjoy it, but it didn't stand up...

Reawakened Series by Colleen Houck Review

Reawakened Series by Colleen Houck Series Rating: 3 out of 5 Quick and Dirty: Fun and Quick, but maybe needed some more development?This series has been an utter surprise for me, sure it has its negatives (detailed below), but if you set aside the extreme critic in all of us it can be a really...

My November TBR

Starting this month I want to begin posting what I plan to read for the month, but here's where I give a small truth about me; I'm a mood reader.  I still stick to the major books I plan to read each month, but there are some that I look at and think I want... Continue Reading →

Fall Book Tag

With it being Halloween, and all the Pumpkin Spice flavors out in full force, I guess it's safe to say it both is fall and feels like fall (even in the good ol' South).  This tag is by Bionic Book Worm (Check her out here), and given that Fall is finally here I was inspired... Continue Reading →

Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne Review

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars This was one of those books I originally picked up because it had a gorgeous cover.  I'm not sure why but I love the rose colored books, they are just so pretty.  Before anyone goes and tells me not to judge a book by it's cover, I didn't.  I... Continue Reading →

How I Review Books – October

To get this started I want to admit that I am, and probably will always be an easy grader.  I judge a book in the end based on how hooked I was and how much of a book hangover I had.  Now, there are a lot of smaller parts that make up that overall judgement... Continue Reading →

Summer Book Haul 2018: The Colossal Haul

So, I should definitely start this off by saying this haul spans three months, one of which includes my birthday. Typically when I go through a month I only pick up a couple of books or just pre-order a book I've had my eye on, but when July comes around I pile up books. It's... Continue Reading →

Dance of Thieves Review (Mary E. Pearson)

I still have a hard time believing this amazing world all began with a book that I picked up just out of curiosity two or three years ago.  The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson was just so good, I could barely put it down, and ended up reading the second book right after... Continue Reading →

Books Read in July!!

July was an amazing month of reads, getting more books added to my reading challenge than I ever expected!  My typical goal for months usually is around 3-4 books, with me reading 3 most of the time, so when I say I read __ books, know that this is atypical and completely jaw dropping, and...

Onyx and Ivory Book Review

Onyx and Ivory is a return to fast paced and compelling fantasy, following Kate Brighton, or her nickname, Traitor Kate, in her self imposed banishment.  This novel started off with a bang, the first line; "Out here darkness meant death", Kate racing to get her and her horse to the safety of civilization before night,...

A Darker Shade of Magic Series Review

So, to start this off I'm going to be honest and say I read the first book last year, and finally got around to reading the second and third this last month.  The word 'finally' actually does not even begin to describe the sense of shame that comes with that long wait, especially considering that...

The Sad, but necessary Book Un-haul

Un-haul; I don't think I've ever heard this word before the online book community used it, and my first thought was why would you get rid of books from a perfectly fine collection?  Well, I've hit that point.  This post is a combination of listing the books I'm actually getting rid of, and touching on...

The Goodreads Reading Challenge

  So, if you've been checking out reading blogs, booktube, or bookstagram you've probably heard of Goodreads, or even a reading challenge.  It's become the staple, or obsession of any book lover, the great way to read more books, or the scary way to question what you're doing with your time.  I've had great years,...

Review: The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

The Lunar Chronicles was my series binge read for the year.  I was a late joiner, and debated reading them up until this point in time.  I've had friends read them and tell me they were good, and other reviewers raving about these books, but it still took me a while to pick these up....

Review of: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

This is one of Veronica Roth's new books after her success with the Divergent trilogy and the Divergent Collection: Four.  I was one of the obsessed readers when it came to Divergent, reading her books as soon as they were available to me, and practically inhaling them, which meant I had to get this the...
