    Top 5… Authors: K-O

    Good evening bookworms! Late again, but this week it’s my fault… Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is authors from K-O, which is a continuation from last week’s topic! As I mentioned before, I’m also going to try and not do the obvious choices for letters (there won’t be any Jay Kristoff’s or Holly Black’s on my list) so long as I can find someone else (although you can bet that Maggie Stiefvater will be in the S spot)! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the super lovely Shanah over at the…

    Good morning bookworms!! It’s time for the monthly book haul!! And honestly, the total is OVER my ten book monthly limit, but it’s kind of not my fault…?!

    Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the monthly wrap-up! During January… I got sick and had 2 migraines (new record). I also didn’t read anything for 11 days. That’s a pretty good record. Reading though? I read 6 books… which is the equal lowest number of books read per month in the last two years. (June 2019 was also 6 books!) Also, two of the books that I finished were even on my TBR for February, so I basically won because that never happens! However, I’m trying not to beat…
