Summer TBR Wipeout Update #1

Summer TBR Wipeout Update #1

The Summer TBR Wipeout is hosted by The Candid Cover! I realized after I took this picture that library books probably don’t count! Woops. So the bottom two I read, they are just from the library, not my TBR pile. I finished 2 audiobooks! My Lady Jane was a fun historical twist with added animal magic and I love the narrator – Katherine Kellgren – so I had a great time listening to it. Queen of Hearts I also loved – another favorite narrator of mine – Moira Quick – and it’s from the POV of the future Queen of […]

#MakeMeRead Readathon wrap up

#MakeMeRead Readathon wrap up

The Make Me Read It Readathon is hosted by Ely and Val. I had such a blast! My goal was the top 4 books picked and I achieved my goal! Here’s what I read: My favorite is torn between Attachments and Reign of Shadows. An Abundance of Katherines was my least favorite, one I struggled through. Overall it was okay, not a terrible read but just one I wasn’t as into as I thought I would be.

Ten Bookish Facts about Me

Ten Bookish Facts about Me

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week our topic is: Ten Bookish Facts about Me Listed in no particular order.   I’m a swap-a-holic. No really, look at all the swaps I do. Yes, I even have a tag for them.  I post on Instagram way more than I do on here. Check my instagram out.  I hate reviewing lately (like this whole year), lucky if I have one review up a month. I’ve been doing little reviews on Goodreads because of COYER but I’m just terrible at reviewing books. I like reading, just not […]

Top Ten Lesser Known Books

Top Ten Lesser Known Books

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week our topic is: Top Ten Books We Enjoyed That Have Under 2000 Ratings On Goodreads Listed in no particular order.   Bayou Magic by Jewel Parker Rhodes is lovely! So magical and a wonderful MG novel.   Dearest by Alethea Kontis – I’m surprised because the first book has a lot of ratings but not the second and third. One of my faves on audiobook and if you love fairy tales you’ll love these books.   Harriet the Invincible by Ursula Vernon is one of my fave hybrid graphic novels, proving […]
