Stacking the Shelves #80

I’m literally trying to remember what the last few weeks have been like, but I’m drawing a big fat blank. I did find out I will be having tests run on my heart. Par for the course for me since I was born with a crappy heart. Doctors just want to get a better picture of my heart (makes sense since I just started seeing a new cardiologist in November) I did go see Split with the family last weekend […]

Books To Break Me Out Of My Comfort Zone

Books To Break Me Out Of My Comfort Zone

Okay, so it’s not exactly a secret how much I love my contemporaries, but last year I made a decision that I wanted to expand my horizons and not just stick to my comfort zones. So I requested review copies of some books that are out of my comfort zone and I am continuing to do that in 2017. But I would like for you all to vote in my poll about which one I should read first. Don’t just […]

When Physical Books Aren’t Doing It For Me

When Physical Books Aren’t Doing It For Me

Full disclosure: this topic was supposed to go up awhile ago, but then I actually started reading a physical book, so I trashed this topic. Only a couple days later, I realized physical books STILL weren’t doing it for me. So I fished this post out of the trash and kept writing this post. I absolutely love physical books. The smell of them, the feel of them, but every once and awhile I find myself preferring to read ebooks and […]

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 […]

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Favorite Book Covers alexia’s picks 1. A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess. This cover is one of my all time favorite covers.

Book Review: Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson

Book Review: Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson

I’m writing this review approximately 24 hours after finishing this book and I’m still not sure how I am going to review it. Was it an easy read? No way. Was it a compelling read? Absolutely. From the beginning, when we first meet Mary, I was hooked. I love books that can hook me right away and Allegedly definitely did that. I had to know what happened the night baby Alyssa had died. Was Mary really guilty or was it […]

Stacking the Shelves #76

I can now officially say that I’ve read more books this month than I’ve read since August! Yesss, I think that means things have calmed down around here. Now let’s hope they STAY calm. I was finally over the cold last week, but on Thursday I woke up sick, again. So not cool universe. I’ve kidnapped my favorite spot on the couch and have attempted to read though my awful headache is kinda making that difficult. Hoping this goes away […]
