• The Goodreads Tag

    Hello Everyone! Now that we are back to our regular scheduled programming; today I bring you a tag I’ve been seeing around the reader for the last week. The Goodreads Tag! Some blogs that I saw this tag on: Fictionallysam.com Bookwyrmbites.home.blog singerofstories922.wordpress.com WHAT IS THE LAST BOOK YOU MARKED AS READ? The last book I marked as read was Uprooted by Naomi Novik. I didn’t think twice when I gave this book 5 stars! I’m still going through withdrawals. I can’t believe I finished it! It was such a good read [haha get it!]. WHAT IS THE LAST BOOK YOU MARKED AS “TBR”? The last book I marked as TBR…

  • Where did I go?

    Hello fellow bookworms! Happy Spring! I know I’ve been MIA for about a week or so and I’m here to address that. Book Blogging is Hard….there I said it! Even though reading is something I do quite avidly; Blogging about books is something you need to practice. It takes discipline and determination. Not to mention, Planning. Running a book blog is a part time job. So why did I stop posting? Am I done with Book Blogging? Absolutely not! I feel like I needed time to sort myself out, to set some goals for myself and rethink how I started. I had a lot of questions going through my head;…

    I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! If you haven’t stumbled across my previous post on this tag, go over and take a look: Throw Back Thursday: Chpt 3 Just in case any of you are new, the rules are simple: You haven’t read the book recently (has to have been at least 3 years and back) Voila! Simple, right? While you’re dusting the dust off those pages and reading the excerpt on the back, ask yourself the following: When did you read it? Do you think you would you read it again now? Did this book have any impact on what type of books you read today? [Feel Free to…

  • Top 5 books I DNF

    Welcome lovely readers! I hope you are all having a wonderful and productive start to your week! Today’s post will be all about the Top 5 books on my DNF list. If you didn’t check out my previous post for my Top 5 Favorite Couples, go over and take a look. As a dedicated reader, I absolutely hate not finishing a book. The disappointment in myself is sometimes hard to overcome and I usually try my best to find something that I like in order to get me to finish it. Sometimes I read little by little, opting to read a chapter a day while I read something else primarily.…

  • Book Blog Newbie Tag

    Hola Todos! Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! Today’s blog post was something I came across on fellow Newbie’s blog, Lauraherondale. It seemed like a fun tag to be a part of as I am new to the book blogging world. 🙂 1 – Why did you start this blog? Honestly, I needed to add something new to my life. I didn’t know what at first but a friend of mine recommended I start a blog on books since I’m always reading. I was very hesitant at first because well…I didn’t think I was capable. BUT here I am! 2- What are some fun and…

  • Top 5 Authors ♥

    Happy Tuesday! Welcome new readers and Hello again to my followers! On today’s tag, I bring to you my Top 5 Authors! 😉 If you didn’t check out my previous post for my Top 5 Favorite Couples, go over and take a look. ♥ Now the following Authors are some who I consider geniuses in their craft. I’ve read, if not all, most of their works and while I might’ve not loved all of them; I stick around for the next. These Authors have their flaws but the way they’ve built their stories and have shaped their characters, have resonated with me. They have inspired me through their writings and…

  • Down the TBR Hole: Chapter 1

    Like all book lovers, I have a TBR list that never seems to stop growing. It all started with ten books I got super excited about and now, fast forward to the future, there are a couple hundred! I read one or two then add six more! I ran across this Book Tag [Meme?] a couple of days ago and it seemed like a great idea to push me into cleaning up my never-ending TBR list. I highly recommend you all to give it a try!....

  • Review: Uprooted by Naomi Novik

    Title: Uprooted Author: Naomi Novik Pages: 464 pages Format: Paperback “Our Dragon doesn’t eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through. They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice, and he were a real dragon. Of course that’s not true: he may be a wizard and immortal, but he’s still a man, and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years. He protects us against the Wood, and we’re grateful, but not that grateful.”....
