Stacking the Shelves #28

To those of you that celebrate it, Merry Christmas! I hope you had a wonderful time with your families yesterday. For those of you who don’t celebrate it, I hope your Friday was awesome and reasonably low stress. In addition to Christmas, my brother’s 15th birthday was yesterday as well. So we were doubly busy. Right before Christmas, my brother got really sick, so we were worried he wouldn’t enjoy Christmas or his birthday. Thankfully, when we took him into […]

Book Review: Truthwitch

Book Review: Truthwitch

I’ve been on a fantasy kick lately, which was perfect, considering that this book is set to come out very, very soon and I’ve been sitting on my copy of it for six months.

How I Use Goodreads

A couple weeks ago, I posted about Goodreads ratings, and after mentioning Friend Ratings, I got a couple question about what they are, and where to find them. This happens every time I bring them up and I love sharing that tidbit with people. For me, Friend Ratings have made my Goodreads life a lot easier.

Stacking the Shelves #27

Hi everyone! Are you excited for Christmas? That’s pretty much all I’ve been able to think about this week. I am such a Christmas freak, but this year I’m behind!

So the coming week is going to be a massive time crunch. But there […]
