Top Ten Tuesday: Anticipated Reads for Late 2015

Top Ten Tuesday: Anticipated Reads for Late 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish combining my two favorite things: books and lists! This week we’re talking about upcoming books for the rest of the year that we’re excited about. We typically do a top ten list of releases we’re excited about in the beginning of the year, but too often that only really includes releases up to June. So I’m happy we’re doing a list now that covers the second half […]

Book Review: Every Last Word

Book Review: Every Last Word

First sentence: I shouldn’t be reading the notes. I originally planned for this review to post a little bit closer to the release date, but I just finished this book a few minutes ago and I know this is something I want to talk about right now. Tamara Ireland Stone gets so many things right with regards to OCD, obsession, and mental health care. It was refreshing and invigorating to see how all these things were handled; coupled with great […]

Stacking the Shelves: BEA Edition

Stacking the Shelves: BEA Edition

hosted by tynga’s reviews  I don’t want to spend too much time talking about my week because I have a LOT of books to show you. As you know, I came home from New York on Sunday morning. After that, I slept for about two days. The only other eventful thing is buying a new dining set! We didn’t want to eat on our new couch, so we bought a little table and chairs that are small enough to fit […]

June 2015 Lineup

June 2015 Lineup

It’s June! Finally/already! I felt like May flew by but also it’s FINALLY June and all these amazing summer releases can be MINE. *evil laugh* May was really awesome. I thought it would take forever counting down to BEA, but suddenly it was the end of the month and I was on the train to New York! BEA was absolutely amazing, and I talk all about it in my recap, which went up yesterday. Other than that, though, my family […]

BEA Wrap Up

BEA Wrap Up

I just got home from New York today and I. Am. Tired. Tie-erd. But it’s the best kind of tired. My joints are aching from all the walking/standing/sitting on the concrete floors of Javits. My throat is sore and my voice is hoarse from all the talking and laughing. I’m in a brain fog because everything just happened SO FAST.  I miss it all but I am also so happy to be home with my cats and my husband and […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Adaptation Wish List

Top Ten Tuesday: Adaptation Wish List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish combining two of my favorite things: lists and books! This week we’re talking about books we’d like to seen adapted into movies or television shows. Movies 1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer – These books, in a word, are cinematic. Literally everything about this series is just begging to be turned into a movie. WHERE IS MY MOVIE. 2. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge – With the […]

Epic Recs: June 2015

Epic Recs: June 2015

Epic Recs is a recommendations program/challenge/book club hosted by Amber and Judith where each month you and a partner recommend one (or more!) books to each other. So May went not-so-great. I tried (really, I did) to read The Start of Me and You (I even bought a hardcover!) but it just wasn’t a Bekka book. Nothing against it, but so not my thing. Lili got way busy – with the end of the semester comes finals and final days […]
