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 […]

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, […]

March Uppercase Box

March Uppercase Box

For a few months now I’ve been subscribed to the Uppercase subscription box. It’s a monthly YA box of bookish goodies plus one book. I absolutely love it and think it’s definitely worth the price. For one thing, the book is signed, and for another, it helps curb spending. I always wait to find out what the Uppercase book is going to be before I make any obvious new release purchases. I always include the book I get in my […]

Something I Haven’t Done in a While

Something I Haven’t Done in a While

  In the early days of my blogging career, I reviewed everything I read, and I basically finished every book I started. I wasn’t (and still am not) afraid to post a negative review if I didn’t like a book. I would tear into books without mercy and I would do it pretty frequently. I was new to the YA scene, so I was making my way through the staples, and some of those books were just not good. I […]
