#SlayThatSeries TBR and Progress

I was so excited when I heard about this readathon, hosted by Sara from SarawithoutanH and Chami from ReadLikeWildFire on YouTube. For this readathon, you simply read books within a series and attempt to “slay” them (finish them in other words). I originally thought this readathon started tomorrow on Monday, but I understood the dates wrong and it starts today! The readathon runs from Sunday September 27th through Sunday October […]

How to Have a Profile Picture with Your Comments

Have you ever wondered how to have a profile picture accompany your comments? I had to take some time to figure this out when I first started blogging, so I thought this post would be helpful to others! It’s good to have an image to go with your comments because it helps others remember you and associate your comments with your blog. Having a profile picture to go with your […]

TTT: My Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Check out the list of future topics and join us! My TBR is a constantly evolving thing. I like having a general plan, but I’m also a big mood reader. I typically have at least 5 books checked out from the library at any given time. That way I have options for where my mood might take me. Sometimes, […]

Magonia (Magonia #1) by Maria Dahvana Headley

This book is hard for me to review because I have very mixed feelings about it! I won an ARC of this book in a giveaway from Sadja @ Across The Words (Thanks Sadja! 🙂 ). After reading the back of the book, I was interested in the story – especially after seeing it had been blurbed by Neil Gaiman (who I have yet to read, but highly respect!). Later, […]

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer

** This is the third book in The Lunar Chronicles series. There may be spoilers in this review for the previous books in this series. ** Some of you may remember, Cress was voted to be the first book I read during the #MakeMeRead It Readathon hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley and Ely @ A Book So Fathomless back in July. I picked up Cress a few days […]

TTT: Booktubers I’m Watching

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie and I decided I wanted to share my latest obsession with you guys – booktube! Here are ten booktubers that I’m enjoying right now. It was hard to narrow my list down to just 10 – there are definitely more booktubers I love that I haven’t included here. I’ve link their main channel in their name and included a favorite video of […]

Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi

** This is the third book in the Shatter Me series. There may be spoilers in this review for the previous books in this series. ** This review is hard for me to write, especially knowing how many people love this series – including my sister! In the end, I didn’t enjoy this series. Looking back on it, I felt similarly after each book but was interested enough in the […]

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer

** This is the second book in The Lunar Chronicles series. There may be spoilers in this review for the previous books in this series. ** Loved It! This book was just as fantastic as the first book, if not even better! Once again, Marissa Meyer deftly weaves a story that is a mix of many genres to create a unique world with unique characters. I’m incredibly impressed with her […]

TTT: Finished Series I Have Yet to Finish

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Check out the list of future topics and join us! I have so many series that I need to finish! I recently started keeping track of my series progress using a book series spreadsheet created by Crini @ All About Books, but it hasn’t motivated me to finish series the way I thought it would. Creating this TTT was […]

3rd Annual Beat the Heat Readathon – Wrap Up

The Beat the Heat Readathon is officially over! I didn’t do as well as I had initially hoped, but I went on a trip over the long weekend and had company yesterday, so it’s not surprising I didn’t meet my original goal. I’m still happy with my progress (I got pretty close to finishing Rook) and had a blast with this readathon, which is always the most important goal! Here […]
