September in Books + October to Read

Blogging, Book Reviews

September went by kind of quickly, or at least it seemed that way. It still doesn't feel like October here though. According to my father the difference in temperature between here and my hometown is around 30-40 degrees. Aka. It's in the low 60s and high 50s there and it still reaches into the low 90s here from time to time. Like, what? I'm still being delusional and wearing sweaters though because…

NovelTea Book Club Swap!

Blogging

I got this awesome package from my swap partner in the NovelTea Book Club! It was a lot of fun picking out her gifts as well! I've actually been eyeing the kitty book mark that she sent me, so I'm excited that I have it now! Yay! The box she sent me was literally perfect for me, and it included cute little sticky notes on the items explaining a little…

Reader’s Choice: September

Blogging

Can you feel the pumpkin spice in the air? I know it's coming. Soon. On that note, let's pick a book for September! I gathered these suggestions mainly from co-workers and customers! I was going to put one book on the list, but then it was taken off the shelf and shoved into my hands and I had no choice but to buy it and promptly devour it in days.…

Summer Bookworm BINGO!

Blogging, Book Reviews

For Alex the school year has started, yet kids (and parents) are still running around picking up last minute summer reading books that were forgotten over the duration of the lazy summer months. I on the other hand managed to complete two summer reading bingos on the #SummerBookwormBingo that I shared near the start of the summer! I know that things got a little crazy and hectic (and a bit…

Reader’s Choice – August

Blogging

It's time again for another Reader's Choice! I loved the last book that you guys picked (All the Bright Places) even though I almost cried and screamed at it. That's what makes a book good right? Getting all your emotions in a bundle. You can read my review of it here! I had avoided YA books for a while after graduating college and while in college, for the most part.…

Four Things

Blogging, Life

I was tagged by Super Space Chick to do the Four Things tag, which shares four facts in a bunch of different categories. Let's begin! Four Places I've Lived: Erie - Born and raised. Otherwise known as the mistake on the lake (lovingly) by the locale. Pittsburgh - Moved here for college and then stayed for six years. I really did love Pittsburgh South Korea (for a month) - I mean, staying with Sarah for…

That time I tried to be a fashion blogger…

Blogging

When I first started out blogging I was dead set on being a fashion blogger. I loved looking at outfit posts and scribbled outfit ideas in my notebooks. This skirt with this top and these shoes. That dress with those tights and that cardigan. Although, then I realized that, at the time, I didn't have anyone to take pictures, nor did I have a tripod. I didn't really think the…

Fictional Fridays #22 – Let’s Play!

Blogging

I've never been the biggest gamer. I mainly only played games on my gameboy like Pokemon. I also had a Gamecube and a Wii, but I only played party/multi player games on those like Guitar Hero, Mario Party, Mario Cart, and Wii Sports. I also played Animal Crossing, which is basically like the Sims, except not quite. Now on my 3DS I've been branching off from my standard (Pokemon) into…

Bingo Plans!

Blogging

A few posts back I mentioned the #summerbookwormbingo I started, and now I'm going to talk about my first bingo plan! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE summer reading and I'm so pumped about this! So anyways, this is my current BINGO plan! I think it's a good place to start, mainly because I already read a memoir and a non fiction, so I'm ahead of myself!! Luckily, a lot of books…
