Reading More While Taking Care of Baby

Reading More While Taking Care of Baby

  Rosie is eight months old now and I think I finally got the hang of this whole parenting-a-baby thing. Not parenting in general, just keeping a baby happy and healthy and growing and all that, while taking care of myself and my home. In general, things are starting to look like normal again, and this includes reading. I read over ten books per month over the summer and it’s been amazing. I’ve mostly liked them too! This is because […]

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations

September is upon us (yikes) and I don’t know about you, but this time of year always makes me nostalgic for Harry Potter. Since we’re all getting ready to board the Hogwarts Express and cozy up in our house common rooms, I thought I’d share a few recommendations based on the four Hogwarts Houses. So there will be two books to go to each house, along with which Harry Potter book I feel exemplifies each house the best. The Gryffindor […]

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski. I was really looking forward to this book and was so excited when a fellow blogger wanted to unload her copy. It looked really good and I was expecting to love it. Unfortunately, after a few chapters, I realized this book wasn’t for me. I was feeling nothing for this book and the characters didn’t interest me at all. The Rattled Bones by S. M. Parker. Now this one I was super psyched for and […]

How Do You Manage Your TBR?

How Do You Manage Your TBR?

In the beginning of July, I wrote a post assessing how my TBRs were working out and noticed I hardly read anything I listed for the month. With that knowledge I implemented a new system that I really think helped me get to my TBR in July and will help me going forward. I’ve always been a mood reader so I felt these lists were kind of constricting in the past, but with this new system I’ve been able to […]

Bekka’s Auto-Buy Authors

Bekka’s Auto-Buy Authors

  Auto-buy authors. I think a lot of us who purchase books have a handful of authors on this list. These are authors we automatically pre-order, books what click “want to read” for the moment they show up on Goodreads. I know I have a fair amount of authors who have written books that meant so much to me, I have to gobble up their back list and read all their new releases. My list isn’t very long because money, […]

What I’ve Been Watching

What I’ve Been Watching

Hey, I cannot believe I am actually doing this post a month after the last one, YAY me! I should get a prize or something, right? Anyway, this past month was about me catching up on some shows and me starting a new one. Well not technically new, but new to me. Caught Up Scandal: I am now, 100% caught up on this show and holy crap I cannot believe all the craziness that happened in season 6. Also, I […]

5 Books I Really Like But Don’t Mention Enough

5 Books I Really Like But Don’t Mention Enough

On Thursday I had a sort-of negative post about books and series I’m not interested in reading. I like writing those types of posts and I’m not one to dislike writing negative reviews, but I thought I’d switch things up and put some positivity out here. So I’ve made a list of a handful of books I really, really liked, but don’t get enough attention on my blog. Darkness Before Dawn Trilogy by J.A. London I’ve only read the first […]
