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 »

  So this is my first time participating in Stacking the Shelves! Seems like IMM died, but this is a great alternative. I’m not going to bother listing and taking pictures of books I’ve bought since October since my buying habits have not changed despite the reading and blogging slump. I bought quite a few books, physical and ebook. I’d probably need multiple posts to cover them all. So I’ll just start with what I acquired this week! Purchased Hidden {Firelight #3} by Sophie Jordan A Touch Menacing {Touch Trilogy #3} by Leah Clifford Sky on Fire {Monument 14 #2}… 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 »
