Bout of Books 14!

That’s right! I am participating in yet another read-a-thon! That will be three read-a-thons over the course of four weeks for me. I am slightly exhausted from all this reading, but Bout of Books is a pretty low-key read-a-thon, so I still want to participate. This will be my first time participating in Bout of Books, and I am really excited to jump right in! Work is going to make […]

Top 5 Wednesday 8/5/15: Top 5 Favorite Maps

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. To check out everyone in the T5W family, click here! Oh, maps, how I love thee. Maps are a staple in the world of fantasy novels, and sometimes it seems as though a great map is the mark of a great book. It always puts a smile on my face when I flip open the cover of a brand new book and find […]

Review: The Harrow by Karen Carr

The Harrow by Karen Carr (Goodreads) I won a copy of The Harrow in a Goodreads giveaway and have agreed to write a review with my honest opinion. The Harrow follows our main character Callie, after a seemingly normal trip to her local YMCA ends with her lost in another world and another time. Callie has no idea where she is or how she got there. Before she has a chance […]

I didn’t manage to finish all of the challenges for #TBRTakedown 2.0, but I still managed to complete 6 books, and I at least started a book for each of the challenges. It was really fun to participate in this readathon and keep track of how everyone was doing on Twitter. This readathon was created by Shannon at leaninglights and I really hope she hosts another one soon! So here’s […]

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag!

I wasn’t tagged to do this, but it looked like fun, so I wanted to hop on board! This tag was created by ReadLikeWildFire and Ely Jayne. Definitely check out their video and blog post to see what they have been up to this year! It was impossible to pick just one answer for all of these questions. I have read so many fantastic books this year and I am hoping to read […]

Top 5 Wednesday 7/29/15: Top 5 Favorite Character Tropes

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. To check out everyone in the T5W family, click here! This week’s topic was seriously hard for me. If I’m being honest, most character tropes pretty much drive me nuts. Kickass female protagonist? Been there, done that. Bad boy who turns out to be really deep and caring if you just give him a chance? Blah, blah, blah. Best friends falling in love? […]

#TBRTakedown 2.0 TBR!

I am loving how many readathons I have been able to participate in recently! I’m participating in two in July and hopefully two more in August! They are really pushing me to get some books read. I don’t really mind having a ton of books on my TBR shelf, but it still feels good to see a pile of books I have completed. The next readathon is #TBRTakedown 2.0, created […]

Top 5 Wednesday 7/22/15: Top 5 Side Characters That Deserve Their Own Series

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey. To check out everyone in the T5W family, click here! I found this topic to be a little hard to write about. There are some side characters that I love, but it was still hard for me to choose some worthy of their own series. Also, I am sitting on a plane writing this, so I don’t have any of my books to […]

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! […]
