“Currently” To-Read List

Book Reviews, Life

I've been churning out these book reviews faster than I can stub my toe on the dining room table's leg! (That's actually a lie, I can stub my toe in lightning fast speeds....constantly) Although, I haven't mentioned what's coming up on my reading list that I'm doing my best to knock down to a reasonable size! So let's take a gander at what the bookworm has on her to-read shelf.…

November’s Reader’s Choice

Blogging

Being back from the dead feels pretty good, well, the blogging dead, you know what I mean. October is Octover and now it's November, so this month I will bring back Reader's Choice! (Though I don't even know how many people I'll have left to actually vote on a book selection!) Since I've racked up too many books on my to-read shelf, I'm going to put a hold on buying…

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…

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.…

June to-read + Reader’s Choice!

Blogging

I know I fell WAY behind on blogging last month, but can you really blame me? So much was going on in life and I got so caught up in it all that my blogging muses just fled the building, and there wasn't even a fire! (I know I'm not funny, but let's just pretend I am) I have some other big news that I've been waiting to share on…

May To-Read & Pick My Next Read

Blogging

Ah the month of May! It really came suddenly, but I'm ready to face the day! May is the month when it FINALLY gets mildly warm up here in the north east, and it's also home to Mother's Day & Memorial Day! May is also the last full month that I'll be living in Pittsburgh, which totally blows my mind! Goodness! Things start moving really fast when you start thinking…

Welcome 2014 + New reads!!!

Blogging, Life

It's a brand new year! I'm prepared to be writing 2013 for at least another month by total accident, because I do it every year! I'm really excited for this year because I have a lot of plans and goals to achieve!  (I also got a lot of great books for Christmas that I can't wait to start reading too!) My (hopeful) goals to accomplish: 1. Going on a nice…

October to-read list

Book Reviews

Martin A Street Cat Named Bob - James Bowen…

To-read List for September

Book Reviews

I always amass a huge number of books with the intent to read them so, this month to try and keep track of my reads, I thought I'd post a to-read list! This way, all my books I hope to read are displayed from the get go...and maybe you can suggest some reads to me too! (I'm always curious as to what books people have enjoyed! Maybe I'll get some…
