Stacking the Shelves #79

Stacking the Shelves #79

So as I sat down to write this post, I realized I have no idea what happened over the last two weeks. It’s all a gigantic blur. Like I’m trying soo hard right now to remember and I’ve got nothing. All I know is we filed our taxes and I bought a bunch of clothes for myself and for Rosalie. That’s it. I haven’t read. I watched some TV and movies but really, nothing to report on. this week’s posts […]

My February Uppercase Box

My February Uppercase Box

For a few months now I’ve been subscribed to the Uppercase subscription box. It’s a monthly YA box of bookish goodies plus one book. I absolutely love it and think it’s definitely worth the price. For one thing, the book is signed, and for another, it helps curb spending. I always wait to find out what the Uppercase book is going to be before I make any obvious new release purchases. I always include the book I get in my […]

Netflix Book Tag

Netflix Book Tag

I’m a new parent. I’m tired. And so sometimes, reading isn’t a thing. It wasn’t this week, that’s for sure. Instead, I binged Nurse Jackie on Netflix. Netflix is just so much easier to pay attention to when you’re sleep deprived and need something to keep you awake when you’re trying to feed your fussy baby in the middle of the night. So anyway, I don’t have a book review to post today like I wanted; instead I’m going to […]

Stacking the Shelves #78

Remember how I told you guys, I had just been sick with a cold before? Well guess who ended up with bronchitis only DAYS later? Yup, that was me. Bronchitis is not fun. At all and there was nothing that could really be done for me. I just had to ride it out & suffer the entire time. Which leads me to this: Who the heck designed cough syrup? Because that stuff is disgusting. I appear to FINALLY be turning […]

Readers’ Choice #3

Readers’ Choice #3

So the first Readers’ Choice didn’t go very well, but I’m so so happy to tell you that it definitely did the second time around. I actually did read Caraval by Stephanie Garber. It took me a long time to get through just because I’m terrible at reading lately. But I loved every minute of reading it and I hiiiighly recommend grabbing yourself a copy if you love adventure and magic and mystery and most of all, romance. I’m hopeful […]
