June Book Haul

June Book Haul

  So for a while I was doing weekly or bi-weekly book hauls and it was getting to be a nuisance. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to do when you’ve got a new baby on your hands (though, she’s six months now and life is much easier.) Also, I was constantly feeling like I had to have something to show, and was acquiring books at an unhealthy rate. So I’ve decided that for the time being I’ll […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books of 2017 (so far)

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books of 2017 (so far)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Best Reads of 2017 So Far bekka’s picks 1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This was the third book I read this year, and the first 5 star rating. This was incredible. The voice was compelling and Starr herself was such a complex and lovable character. If you somehow haven’t heard of this, it’s inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and it’s a […]

Book Review: Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

Book Review: Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire

Ahhhhh oh my GOD you GUYS. This sequel/companion to Every Heart A Doorway was absolutely amazing, everything I was expecting it to be and more. To say I am blown away by the genius McGuire shows again and again would be an understatement. The understatement of the century. Because once again, a book in the Wayward Children series has absolutely murdered me and I am dead on the floor with a book-shaped hole in my heart. Once again, I am […]

Stacking the Shelves #92

Stacking the Shelves #92

Hi everyone! I know I said my hiatus was over a few weeks ago, but I just couldn’t really get into blogging just yet. It’s still a struggle for reasons that I outlined earlier this week. Adding to all of that crap was the news that my wheelchair company went under, so we now have to go through a new company to get my wheels fixed and this NEW company doesn’t take my insurance. I swear the universe has it […]

What I’ve Been Watching

What I’ve Been Watching

Hi guys, I’m back with another discussion about what I’ve been watching. My plan was always to do one of these posts a month, but due to crappy life happenings, I’m lucky if this post goes up every few months. Over the past few months I’ve caught up on 3 shows and binged watched an entire season of one show in 2-3 nights. Caught Up Scandal: I caught up on Scandal at the beginning of this month and now that […]

My Absence

My Absence

Hi guys! I wanted to take this time to explain why I haven’t been blogging much, why I’ve been largely absent on social media. Obviously I know I don’t owe anyone an explanation, but it feels weird not to delve into things when I’ve been blogging with Bekka for 18 or so months (holy crap, that’s insane) A brief shoutout to Bekka first because she has been absolutely amazing to me and so supportive and understanding through all the crap […]
