Cramathon Wrap Up

Cramathon was created by Whitney at WhittyNovels and Kiara at Kiara Soleil. The goal of this readathon is to read as many of the shortest books on your shelves as possible. It’s a sneaky little way to increase the number of books you have read this year (and, boy did it help me a lot). To keep things interesting, there were a couple challenges to complete. Here’s how I did! […]

Top 5 Wednesday 7/15/15: Top 5 Most Anticipated Pre-Orders for the Rest of the Year

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. To check out everyone in the T5W family, click here! Well, of course it is my luck that I actually posted a list of my most anticipated pre-orders four days before the July T5W topics went up. Well, that original post was a Top 7 list, but since today is the 15th, two of my most anticipated releases are already out and probably […]

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer (Goodreads) Between the Lines introduces us to our main character Delilah, a fifteen-year-old high-schooler who discovers a very special fairy tale tucked away in the shelves of her school’s library.

Top 5 Wednesday 7/8/15: Top 5 Things On My Bookshelf That Aren’t Books

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. To check out everyone in the T5W family, click here! This week’s topic is pretty interesting, because obviously my favorite thing about my bookshelf is that it is covered in books! But I do have a few knick-knacks that I have collected over the years that make my bookshelf unique. I like this topic because it is giving us a peek at what […]

July 2015 TBR

Man, there is a lot going on in July. I am totally in the mood to read like crazy and knock some books off my TBR, and I am in luck because there are a bunch of readathons going on this month. Unfortunately, this month is crazy for me because I have a big work trip right in the middle of the July, so I’m not sure how productive I […]

June 2015 Wrap Up

Compared to the 12 books I read in the month of May, I did a pretty bad job during the month of June. I was on vacation in May, so that’s the only reason I managed to finish so many books. In June I completed 4 books, but two of them had been started in May, so they were already halfway done. It was my birthday in June, so I was […]

Top 5 Wednesday 7/1/15: Top 5 Favorite Chapter Headers

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. To check out everyone in the T5W family, click here! I found this week’s topic to be a little difficult to write about. I really love when books have special extra touches like decorative art, but lately all the books I have been reading haven’t even had chapter titles, let alone decorative headers. I found it really hard to find books that I […]

Mortal Instruments Mayhem: City of Bones Review

I have had the Mortal Instruments series sitting on my shelf for probably a year now, and with the recent announcement that the series will be turned into a TV show, I figured now is the best time to dive into the series and get cracking. I want to be able to enjoy the series before I run the risk of seeing any spoilers or get too used to seeing certain actors […]

Top 5 Wednesday 6/24/15: Top 5 Characters I Want to Drown

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. To check out everyone in the T5W family, click here! I find it funny that the first week I decided to participate in T5W, the topic is Characters I Want to Drown – not exactly a happy topic. But believe me, I have come across some characters that I truly despise, and I had a lot of fun writing this and reminiscing […]

Most Anticipated Releases: Summer and Fall 2015

I tried so hard to make this a Top 5 list, but I realized there were just too many books that I was excited about, so I decided to make it a Top 7. Two of these books are being released in July (so soon!), so they may even be out already by the time you see this post. For the others, I will have to suffer through the agonizing […]
