I don’t know what it was about October and November, but they were awful reading months for me. I ended up DNFing about a third of the books I read, and that overall left me disappointed. Books I was excited about ended up being flops for me, and that led to a lot of feet … Continue reading Fall Updates and My Last TBR of the Year!

It’s Spookathon week! ...In a half hour. I told you all the books I wanted to read this month back in my October TBR, but now, let’s discuss the week ahead. There are five challenges total for the readathon but based on the books I’m planning to read this month, I think I’ll only be … Continue reading The Second TBR In a Row…Whoops
Sick Nightmare Before Christmas reference in the title right? (heh....heh.....) Anyways, its finally October, things are about to get spooky. I love coming up with my October TBRs because I honestly love reading mysteries and thrillers (which is hilarious because I’m terrified of everything), and this month gives me the chance to read those and … Continue reading What’s This? What’s This? An October TBR?
Honestly the end of September came so fast I think I have whiplash. This month was awfully busy, a lot of working, a lot of Hell’s Kitchen watching, but not a lot of reading. I participated in Contemporary-a-thon in the middle of the week, which is where most of my reading took place. Last week, … Continue reading A More…Historical Wrap Up
As the temperatures get cooler outside in Southern California – and by cooler I mean stuck at 70 degrees...sigh – I’m holed up inside feeling like death. So, as I’m sitting in my apartment watching The Great British Bake Off, I figured I would catch you guys up on the results of Contemporary-a-thon last week. If … Continue reading A Pretty Good Reading Week
In October, I'm reading all spooky books again, so I'm using September as a sort of bridge month. Just reading whatever I can get my hands on before things get darker. But when I found out that the next round of Contemporary-a-thon was happening I thought, why not? I've got a bunch of contemporary novels … Continue reading Another Week, Another Readathon
I'm happy to say that my Summer Slump has ended (but alas, the Southern California heat persists, much to my sweater loving chagrin) and I'm back on track with my reading goals for the year. In August, I threw caution to the wind and didn't follow any sort of TBR, I just read what I … Continue reading The Month of Catch Ups and Re Reads
I talked about my reading slump in my June Wrap Up, and it's safe to say that I'm far from out of said slump (the last time I read was July 1st...and I'm writing this on July 14th). These past two-ish weeks, I've been trying to figure out the real reason why I haven't been … Continue reading Trying Something…New.
So...uh, remember when I said back at the beginning of June I was going to try to do the Cramathon challenge, but I didn't think I could finish reading 7 books in a week? Yeah. I was right. In fact, I couldn't read 7 books in the month, and I kind of blame the Stalking Jack The … Continue reading I Told You My Plans Wouldn’t Pan Out
