Hey guys I am sorry I have been so M.I.A lately. I was on such a streak in October and then month has been very draining. My house is getting work done and I just have been stressing out about a bunch of stuff. I haven’t been in the mood to write. I knew I had to post a blog talking about Morgan Matson’s new cover reveal. So let’s do this! Continue reading “Cover Reveal Thoughts: Save the Date”
Hey everyone. I’m sorry for barely posting last week. I was feeling really drained so I ended up only writing one post. 😦 In the last week I decided to take part in Spookathon. Spookathon is a week long readathon that went from October 16th to October 22. It’s hosted by Lala, Paige, and Shannon. They started it last year. I am so happy I decided to participate this year! Now let’s hear how it went! Continue reading “Spookathon 2017”
Hey guys so I decided that today’s post is going to be a non-bookish one. Today is my 25th birthday. I can’t believe I’m 25. I honestly can’t believe it’s my birthday. It feels like yesterday that I still had a couple months to go. Not only is it my birthday but it’s Friday the 13th. I enjoy sharing my birthday with such a creepy day. Plus on Netflix there is a new show about serial killers called Mindhunter. I’m super excited to check that out, I hope it’s good!
So I’m super excited for today. I plan on getting my makeup done at Sephora in the morning. After that I’m stopping at Barnes and Nobles. I mean there is one right by the Sephora so I really can’t pass this up. Then later my boyfriend is taking me out to dinner at a surprise restaurant. I’m super excited for that. Then tomorrow I’ll be celebrating with my friends at the bar. So I’m excited for the next couple days.
I honestly would just like to take this time to thank all you guys in the community! I’m so thankful for you all. You guys motivate me to keep blogging. I also have found so many amazing new books from you guys. I just love being around people who love to talk about books as much as I do. Plus I’ve made some amazing friends in this community. I hope to continue to make even more friends as the months go on.
Since I’ll be hitting up Barnes and Nobles today, do you guys have any suggestion on what I should buy? Feel free to give me some recommendations. You guys know I love my thrillers, so many some lesser known ones you enjoy. I am leaning towards getting a Stephen King book. Maybe Gerald’s Game or Pet Cemetery. I also was thinking about getting The Snowman By Jo Nesbo.

Brie is instantly targeted by jealous girls at her new school, and the only available seat on her bus is next to the school’s star wide receiver, Jake, who for some reason, finds her offensive. After a humiliating article and picture of Brie is posted in the online school journal, a demon she thought she’d overcome resurfaces, and her life unravels. A newly compassionate Jake has finally taken an interest in her, but can Brie learn to trust her heart, or will she miss out on the best thing that ever happened to her?
Jake has his own secrets and has built his own walls, but eventually his curiosity about the new girl gets the best of him. Unfortunately, now there is competition: the captain of her cross-country team. Jake’s romantic histories with the girl next door and the school’s queen bee, adds tension to a simmering tempest when all he wants is Brie. Is he strong enough to help the one he loves weave sense into her crumbling new reality while overcoming his own tainted past? This is an edgy YA with issues of bullying, self harm, and attempted suicide…with an HEA ending.

Top Ten Tuesday was started on The Broke And The Bookish, it is a weekly meme with a predefined topic that book bloggers around the world participate in. It’s been a while since I participated in this. There are a lot of books coming out this fall that I really can’t wait for. It was fun creating this list for you guys as well as seeing what books you added. So let’s dive on in!
Well guys I’m in bit of a reading slump. I also have been slacking on posting at least 4 times a week so I decided I was going to do something different today. I’m going to review a show I went to the other day. I was very lucky and ended up winning the lottery for Sweeney Todd. Tickets were only $39 with no extra fees. I was very impressed! My friend and I also ended up getting amazing seats. So we were very happy. Now let’s talk about the experience. Continue reading “Show Review: Sweeney Todd”
Hey guys! I decided I would start doing Down The TBR Hole which was created by the lovely Lost In A Story. I can’t believe this is my 6th week. I still have a long way to go with cleaning up my TBR list. I can’t wait to see how many it takes to get to the end. So let’s do this!
- Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
- Order on ascending date added.
- Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
- Read the synopses of the books
- Decide: keep it or should it go?
The fact that I will be repeating this process every week means that I have to keep track of where I ended and where I’m going to continue. E.g. in week one I do book 1 – 5, in week two book 6 – 10, and so on, until I’ve filtered out my entire TBR. Continue reading “Down The TBR Hole #6”
