That's right... I threw three books into the DNF pile this month! I'm actually proud of myself because I'll usually suffer through to finish even if I'm not liking a book. I've done that so many times and I'm just sick of it. Although... there was one book this month I read all the way … Continue reading I Actually DNF’d Three Books!
I've come to realize in my years of using Goodreads is that I need to be careful with it. Not in the same way you need to be careful with Facebook or Twitter though. What I mean is that I have recently noticed that I can be highly influenced by the ratings and reviews on … Continue reading Treading Goodreads Carefully
Well guys, I did my Goodreads Challenge for the year in just six months! Honestly, I would've finished earlier, but I had a major reading slump in April and May. It was a bit upsetting to not feel like reading, but I was also finishing school in April and was just drained after that. I … Continue reading Mid-Year Reading Report
So I found this tag over at Lau Reads and I couldn't resist doing it myself. Like most of us, I love Harry Potter and will just about always do a tag or quiz that is based off of it. So here we go! – What Hogwarts house are you in? Ravenclaw – What is … Continue reading Harry Potter Book Tag
Like most of us bookworms of the world, I have a TBR list that goes on for miles and I'll probably be crushed by my stack of unread books one day. Everyday it seems like my TBR list grows and I'm constantly taking out books from the library or buying new ones on Amazon or … Continue reading Project Home Library
I meant to post this a while ago, but you know, life happens and you forget about things. Whoops. Since I published my book this past summer, I've taken to making sure I post in my online class introductions that I wrote book. After all, I'm going for my Master's in Library Science, as are … Continue reading Getting Out There
As bookworms, we all have our preferred formats when it comes to reading. Some people, well, most people prefer physical books over ebooks. Or they might like both the same and just prefer ebooks for traveling (me). But there is another option that many people like to use to consume books... audiobooks. So I am … Continue reading Reading vs. Listening
So we are three days into the new year and I've read 2 1/2 books so far. I'd say that's a pretty good start for my reading goal! This year I'm staring my Goodreads Challenge at 50 books, since I read more than that the past two years. It is possible that the number will … Continue reading My 2019 Reading Challenge
Well, it's the last day of the year and I'm glad to say that once again I crushed my reading goal. I originally only said I'd read 25-30 books, and then when I got close to that goal, I raised it to 45... then again to 55 books. I still beat that final goal by six … Continue reading My Year in Books
Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I know it's been a while, but... you know, life happens. One of those things being that I finished yet another semester of grad school and only have one more left! Anyway, for the next two days (today and tomorrow) the Kindle version of my book, Standing By, is on sale … Continue reading Christmas ebook Sale!
We are over halfway into the year now, and it's been quite a year so far! Not only did I finish my first year of graduate school with a 4.0 GPA, but I have also written and published a book and somehow managed to read (as of this time) 34 books. I really though I'd … Continue reading Mid-Year Reading Report
Hey guys, it's book tag time again! I found this short tag over on Kelly's blog - Another Book in the Wall - and thought it would be a cute one to do. Also, I'm really lacking on ideas for other blogs posts at the moment. Hopefully I'll get back into a good rhythm soon. … Continue reading Siblings Book Tag
As stated in the post below, my book, Standing By, is available now on Amazon and the Kindle Store! I am so excited to be sharing this with, well, everyone! Although I am a little nervous as well. I'm also in disbelief that I actually wrote a book. I'll let you know when my brain … Continue reading Standing By is Available Now!
