Hey guys! I am finally sharing my May Wrap-up with you guys. I have to say May ended up being a bit of a busy month for me so I didn’t get as much reading in as I’d like to. I kinda feel that I am in a reading slump, especially since we’re seven days into June and I’m just now picking up a book. I haven’t been in a huge reading mood. I do hope that will change. I posted my TBR last week and I do hope I’m able to read all my picks. So let’s dive in and see what I read in June. Continue reading “My May Wrap-up”

Down The TBR Hole #72
Hey guys! It’s time for another Down The TBR Hole which was created by Lia @Lost In A Story! I can’t believe this is going to be my second to last post.

My OWLS Magical Readathon TBR (Aka My April TBR)
Hey guys, so I’m sure you’ve been seeing a lot of these posts going around. I am super excited to announce that I will be participating in the OWLS Magical Readathon which is hosted by the lovely G @ Book Roast. Here is the announcement video for this years readathon.
This is a readathon I’ve wanted to participate for a while now. I just never did. So this is new to me but I am very excited about it. I know this year G really went above and beyond. She made a whole booklet which has all the prompts for the readathon, which you can find here, as well as requirements for wizarding careers, which you can find here, for the NEWTS readathon that happens in August.
So for this readathon I did pick a career. I decided to pick the Auror career. It sounded really badass and just something I knew I would never do if had the chance. So I decided I’d live dangerously through this readathon. I also picked books for the other prompts as well just in case I wanted to read more for the readathon. So I’ll be posting all my picks for all the prompts. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “My OWLS Magical Readathon TBR (Aka My April TBR)”
Blogmas Day 25: 25 Reads Of December
Hey guys! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. I can’t believe this is the last day of Blogmas. I am so sad to be done. I saw that Riveted was doing the 25 Reads of Christmas again. So that meant everyday leading up to Christmas a different book was free to read for one day. They ended up doing this last year. Last year I had a lot more free time so I could read more. This year I ended up being really busy and was working so I didn’t have much free time. So I decided I would talk about books I read, started and wanted to read. So let’s dive in. Continue reading “Blogmas Day 25: 25 Reads Of December”
Book Review: Dry By Augusten Burroughs
Goodreads Synopsis: You may not know it, but you’ve met Augusten Burroughs. You’ve seen him on the street, in bars, on the subway, at restaurants: a twenty-something guy, nice suit, works in advertising. Regular. Ordinary. But when the ordinary person had two drinks, Augusten was circling the drain by having twelve; when the ordinary person went home at midnight, Augusten never went home at all. Loud, distracting ties, automated wake-up calls, and cologne on the tongue could only hide so much for so long. At the request (well, it wasn’t really a request) of his employers, Augusten landed in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey, Jr., are immediately dashed by the grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. But when Augusten is forced to examine himself, something actually starts to click, and that’s when he finds himself in the worst trouble of all. Because when his thirty days are up, he has to return to his same drunken Manhattan life and live it sober. What follows is a memoir that’s as moving as it is funny, as heartbreaking as it is real. Dry is the story of love, loss, and Starbucks as a higher power. Continue reading “Book Review: Dry By Augusten Burroughs”
