    Ringing in the New Year Book Tag

    Good morning bookworms! Right! I’m here to start the new year off with a bang! And what better way to do it, than to steal some tags that are about a year old, and recreate them and send them back out into the world? (No, but seriously, this was waaaaaay easier than creating my own tag.) So, we’re rebranding an end of 2017 tag as a start of 2019 tag. HOORAY! Rules: Link to the person who tagged you (umm, no one) Link to the creator of the tag (Bookmark…

    2018 WRAP-UP & 2019 GOALS!!

    Good morning bookworms! I have been procrastinating writing this post for about two weeks now… in fact, every time I get close to being ready with it, I discover a new graph I can add to it. However, I need to accept that it will never be perfect (I mean, seriously, what is?) and just roll with it. Also, I need to finish writing my 2019 goals, because, we’re already in 2019 and I should have some… right?! PS: This is going to be the longest post EVER, so I’m…

    Hello booknerds! Starting from today I’m going to be taking part in WWW Wednesday! What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

Here is what arrived in October: September’s LitJoy arrived in the first week of October. The theme was Secrets and Shadows and the book was For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig FairyLoot’s October theme was Beautiful Deceptions, and the…

    September ’18 wrap-up and October TBR

    September wrap-up My reading month was ok for September. I read seven books, but I definitely got distracted by Sophie’s post and then I found Kindle Unlimited and I read way more eBooks than I normally do. So my TBR didn’t really go down… But I still read a some good books so I’m satisfied with my reading pile! I definitely read more romance this month that I normally do. And there seemed to be a lot more smut than I ever read in a month, but it was ok.…
