2015 April and May Wrap Up

Life The first weekend in May I was able to make it back to my home state of Texas to see one of my cousins get married – which was beautiful! I spent almost a whole week in Texas and loved being able to see and spend time with so many of my family members in both the Dallas and Houston area. I love my family very much and I […]

2015 #Armchair BEA – Social Media

» 28 May, 2015 » Blogging, Other Posts » 28 comments

Before the Blog One of today’s ABEA topics is social media. Before my blogging days, the only social media I used on the regular was Facebook. Most of my friends use Facebook, some use other social media in addition to Facebook, but most at least use Facebook pretty regularly. Not only do I keep up my friends this way, Facebook is also where I find interesting articles to read! I […]

My New Planner

Believe it or not, I spent the last 3 days or so researching planners – you know me, I’m a research nut! Of course, it helped that I’ve had a cold and spent the majority of the those days in bed trying not to cough my lungs out. Blegh! It was also Memorial Day weekend – what a time to be sick?! Boo. Anyway, back to my new planner. It […]

Flashback Friday: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

My Thoughts So, I actually didn’t mean to reread this book. Let me explain – I didn’t reread this book because I loved it so much the first time. I actually thought I had only read half of this book previously, and I just wanted to finish the story! I picked this book up for the first time two summers ago while I was between graduate school and finding a […]

Burn Out (Burn Out #1) by Kristi Helvig

I read this book because I participated in the Egmont Last List Blog, hosted by Cuddelbuggery, and I was lucky enough to have Kristi Helvig do a guest post here about the sequel, Strange Skies. I thought I would give the first book in the series a shot. I really wanted to love this book… Instead, it turned out to be just mediocre for me. The Good I thought the […]

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

This book wasn’t really on my radar – I picked it out of my February options for my 365 Days of YA challenge. And I’m so glad I picked this up! This story truly surprised me with it’s ingenuity and fun storyline. Sleeping Horned Boy? High School Parties? At first, I wasn’t sure what I thought about this “horned boy in a glass casket”. Such a character definitely makes for […]
