Stacking the Shelves {02}

Uncategorized 6 Comments

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Go here to read the info about this meme, and to link up your own post! Well it’s been a very long time since I last did one of these. I’ve bought quite a few books over the last few months, but I won’t be featuring them all in one post. I’m going to be spreading them out over two or three StS posts. Some of them I may or may not have already read. On to the books! Teardrop (Teardrop #1) by Lauren Kate // Purchased, not read Tandem (Many-Worlds Trilogy… Read more »

Writing Reviews

Uncategorized 0 Comments

Thankfully this year I haven’t had any problems with a reading slump, but right now I seem to be at a writing slump. I have read plenty of books lately, but I just can’t seem to write down anything about them. I read purely for enjoyment, so sometimes trying to be analytical is already kind of hard for me. One thing I plan to do is to just keep some post it notes handy and write something down when I come across something that I either really like or don’t like, or something that makes me stop and think. But… Read more »

So I love readathons and there’s one going on right after Valentines Day. This is perfect because it will be a nice way to unwind after the craziness of Valentines Day. I work in a floral department at a grocery store, so yes, it will definitely be crazy. I want to try to aim for at least one book a day, for seven books total minimum, as well as one short story a day. I haven’t decided which books and stories I’ll read yet, but I’ll announce them when I make the progress post. If you’re interested in signing up… Read more »

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hi everyone! I don’t know if anyone still checks this place or not, I’ve been very bad at coming back to blogging. I keep intending to and then I don’t. Although admittedly this summer I got promoted to being a department manager at work which is much more stressful than just being a lowly minion. But now that I’m back in the swing of things and actually reading again I thought it was time. So in order to help motivate me to get back into blogging I’ve decided to do some work on my actual… Read more »

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hey guys, going to be spending time making the blog spiffy and less boring looking than it is, might also consider moving to self-hosted wordpress eventually. I’m back to reading like I used to so I’ll be compiling some reviews to kind of get ahead so I won’t be stressed when I starting posting regularly again in a month or two. I want to be as organized before relaunch as I can be so that I know where I am and won’t feel like I’m spiraling out of control like I did last fall. Can’t… Read more »

Err, Any Suggestions?

Uncategorized 6 Comments

Image from WeHeartIt.com So let’s be honest here. My reviews aren’t quite as plentiful as they used to be. I’ve been in a reviewing slump. But not a reading slump! I’m still averaging two to three books read a week, but posting only one review a week maybe. I know I’m not the only one to experience this kind of slump, so does anyone have any suggestions on what you did to get out of it? I’d love to hear from you! While I’m at it, is there anything you guys would like to see in my reviews that I’m… Read more »
