    Getting My TBR Under Control

    The Goodreads TBR is not a reflection of all the books on my TBR. It’s only a reflection of books on my TBR that I don’t own. I figured, if I own the book, I should remember to read it. That helped with a fraction of the list. As of writing this, my Goodreads TBR is 174, down from 479. Like, can a girl get a high five or something?! 😀 After deleting all the books I own on a physical or digital shelf, except one, for nonsense reasons, I opened nearly every single other book and skimmed the blurb. Yes, this took days, but like I said in my…

    Am I A Book Addict Yet?

    Earlier this month I went through my Amazon cart. For most people, this isn’t a big ordeal. Maybe you have ten things in there. Maybe you have fifty. I had three hundred and thirty items in my cart. Yeah. 330. For one thing, scrolling through this many items is tedious as hell. So I wouldn’t. And I’d often scroll through and see things that I’d already bought. So, one day, in true me fashion, I decided to just sit down and get as many items out of the cart as I could. My goal was 90% – which would take the cart from 330 to 33. I’m happy to report…

    September Reads: 2019

    Happy October! 😀 You guys. This was such a great month for reading. I just can’t. I’m so happy. ^_^ But I’ll stop gabbing because I finished 11 books this month and have stuff to say! 😀 41: The Poison Diaries Author: Jane, The Duchess of Northumberland Genre: Horror Rating: 4 stars Reviewed: No This was kind of like a handwritten journal with drawings. It’s a fictional account of a boy who can communicate with plants, and the ones in the poison garden try to convince him to kill his evil overseer with their help. They tell him stories of how they’ve killed people, and it’s weird but interesting, and…

    August Reads: 2019 Edition

    Hey, hey, hey! 😀 I’ve officially read 40 books for the year, making me exactly on track for my goal! There are 20 books left, but I’m not going to stress myself about anything, because that defeats the purpose of what I’m trying to do, which is just to read a lot. And I think I’m reading a lot. ^_^ 37: The Stolen Kingdom Author: Bethany Atazadeh Genre: YA Fantasy/Retelling (Aladdin) Rating: 4 stars Reviewed: Yes There was a lot about this that I really liked. I’ve never read an Aladdin retelling, and this was fascinating and interesting, and I was all in. The only downside for me was that…

    July Reads: 2019 Edition

    Happy August!! 😀 I’m still on track with my reading goal. I almost can’t believe it. ^_^ Plus, I did some beta reading last month, and I liked everything I read for the most part, so that’s awesome. 33: The Branch Author: Trinity Amethyst Genre: Graphic Novel Rating: 5 stars Reviewed: Yes Super cute snapshots of what it’s like to be a barista at a kid’s summer camp. It was a fun read and much needed on a day I was feeling kind of down for no good reason. I adored the illustrations in this, and you can tell how fun they are from the cover. 34: Stepsister Author: Jennifer…
