‘Waiting on’ Wednesday: October ’18 Release!

Is it just me or does October hold a lot of goodies for us book lovers? Well, I sure hope it’s not just me…

‘Waiting on’ Wednesday (WoW) is a book blog meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s really simply and easy to participate: all you have to do is feature upcoming books you’re excited about! I try to do one of these monthly (mainly as a reminder to keep an eye out for these books, LOL)!

T5W: Books for My Younger Self

I’ve always been a reader. Well, duh, you might be thinking, but the thing is I never gave much of a thought to what I read. I picked up whatever sounded interesting. Now that I’m older, with the boom of social media and me following more bookish accounts on both Twitter and Instagram, I have become a bit…choosier with what I read. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but I often time do follow the bandwagon and read the “popular” books.

But I’ve come across some books that I really wish had been around when I was a teenager. Maybe I would have felt less awkward or…whatever if I had read them. But I’m glad I get the chance to talk about them today.

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog meme that started as a group on Goodreads. You can check out the rest of this month’s topics and join the group here.

Meeting the Author(s): Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I’m not definitely back from my hiatus, and the more I think about it, the more I think it’ll continue on for a few more weeks for ~reasons~ other than vacation now, lol. But anyway, that’s not the point of this post!

Last week I drove to Texas to attend the Obsidio book tour with authors Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff! It took place at a gorgeous, two-story Barnes and Noble and wow, was it a great crowd! I knew I couldn’t miss going to this because 1) It was the first weekend of my spring break, so HELLO, what a way to celebrate, 2) when would these authors ever be near me again (let alone half-way across the world considering they’re Australian!), and 3) the event was moderating by the lovely Mary over at Mary Had a Little Book Blog!

Top 5 Wednesday: Summer Reads

I work in a school district, and I’m fortunate enough to have a whole month off during summer. (I’m already counting down the days.) Of course, I always plan to accomplish a lot during summer, especially when it comes to my TBR pile. While I do have a TBR jar, I’ve been unfaithful to it lately (thanks, library!).

Anyway, I’m going to try to nail down some books I hope to read while on my break, not necessarily books that remind me of summer (though I might include some of those, too. 😛 ).
