I’ve been really quiet around here …

Hi bookworms, I know I don't need to tell anyone that the last year has been, let's say unique, but what I really mean is stressful and exhausting. One of the big concessions I made was to stop blogging and reviewing ARCs. My reading was inconsistent and I didn't feel I could provide insightful evaluations… Continue reading I’ve been really quiet around here …

Top Ten Tuesday – questions I would ask Stephen King

It’s TTT time! As usual, if you’re curious about this, Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl hosts these weekly challenges (so, see her blog for more info). Today's topic is so exciting: questions I would ask my favorite author. I truly don't have on favorite author, but the one I am most vocally obsessed with is Stephen King. I… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday – questions I would ask Stephen King

Dewey’s #reversereadathon – stats and whatnot

books finished: 5 books perused: 1 total pages read: 1037 hours slept: ~3 Hi bookish friends, I generally have to take a break from social media and blogging after a Dewey's readathon, which is why my readathon summary post always gets delayed. Somehow, reading doesn't tire me out, but the rest does, lol. Anyway, I… Continue reading Dewey’s #reversereadathon – stats and whatnot

heya new and old friends

Hi bookish peeps, Just yesterday, I came across a post by the lovely Virginia (or you know the many other nicknames she goes by) over at The Sassy Library Fox where she details a little fun activity/gift for her followers to celebrate her breaking the 250 subscriber barrier. I thought to myself ooh, I should… Continue reading heya new and old friends

At the halfway point, were 40,000 pages a good idea?

Piggy-backing on my last TTT where I talked about my top ten reads of the first half of this year, I took a look at my specific 2020 goals and where I stand with them. My main goal this year was to be more mindful about my reading. A few factors define that for me.… Continue reading At the halfway point, were 40,000 pages a good idea?

ARC Review – Husband Material by Emily Belden

Chick Lit, Romance | 304 pages | 12.30.2019 | Graydon House 3 STARS Another book with great potential that just sort of falls flat. The premise is really cute - I like a good geeky plot - but the characters are overwhelmingly lacking in charm and the romance just seems completely off. We meet Charlotte,… Continue reading ARC Review – Husband Material by Emily Belden

Aaaand that’s a wrap

The #reversereadathon is officially over. I had a wonderful time and am really happy with my accomplishments. I had made no reading plans. The only goal I set myself was to get back into the swing of things and get out of my reading slump. I think I got there. I read nearly 950 pages… Continue reading Aaaand that’s a wrap

Mid-event update

Hi bookish fam, I hope everyone's readathon is going great. I'm quite pleased with my progress. So far, I've read 161 pages in Jane Eyre and finished the last 87 pages of No Matter and the last 280 pages of Ever Alice. I'm currently deciding what I should tackle next. I'm going to peruse my… Continue reading Mid-event update

Hour 1 – let the fun begin!

I am excited to jump into my first story. Well, I've already jumped into it a long time ago but then hit some reading wall and sadly left the book unfinished for months. I'm talking about Jane Eyre and I am determined to make a good dent into it (maybe even finish it?). I have… Continue reading Hour 1 – let the fun begin!

Life happens!

Hi lovelies, I have been super quiet in the blogosphere and even quieter on my reading front. Is it a slump? Did I get busy? I don't know. It started with my dog getting super sick and my mental capacity was completely ocupied with his recovery, which in truth was much harder and slower than… Continue reading Life happens!
