Wow, how is it already November? I felt like these last few weeks have gone by so so so quickly–almost like I don’t have a moment to stop and breathe. Well, I know this isn’t a book review or anything book-related, but that’s only because I wanted to update y’all on my life! I mean, people care about that, right? Or do y’all just want everything book-related? Well… too late!
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)!
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.
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!
Hi, all! Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my Author Mentor Match bio! Even as I type this, I’m equally excited and nervous. I’ve never participated in a mentorship-like program, so to even think about doing something like this is a bit nerve-wracking to say the least.
Good luck to all the applicants and may be grow in our writing skills!
Well… Okay. I don’t know what to say. I liked this series, but I don’t think I love this series. I think of the 3 books, the 2nd book, Like a River Glorious is my favorite. I listened to the first two books via audiobook, but this one wasn’t available from the Overdrive app and I happened to see it while perusing the shelves not too long ago. So I snatched it up.
These are seriously some of my favorite posts to write, so excuse me if I seem to ramble on… 🙂
WWW Wednesday is a blog meme started by Should By Reading. In this blog post, I’ll answer the following 3 questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Here we go!
I added this book to my TBR when I heard it was a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Unfortunately, it took me a while to actually get the book and read it, but my local library had it so I put it on hold and violá! I read it, loved it, and now I have to write a coherent review because it’s BEAUTIFUL AND MAGICAL. ✨
I received this book in an OwlCrate box a long time ago, but I just stuck it on my shelf and there it sat… Until now, of course! The author will be in my town the first week of June, so I’m doing the thing where I try to read all their books so I can get them signed sort of things. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this? XD)
