Goodreads Re-Organization | In Which I Try to Get 8 Years of Books Together

Recently, one of my favorite Book Tubers, Kristin from Super Space Chick, released a video detailing how she organizes her Goodreads shelves.  This video was so inspiring to me, as someone who joined Goodreads back in 2011 and never really had a true system to it. Over the years I’ve made some attempts at organization, however for the most part it was a half done job and my “Want to Read” shelf was out of control. I basically had the bare bones outline for how I wanted to reorganize my Goodreads but Kristin’s video was what finally pushed me to […]

Exploring the World of Bullet Journaling [1]

So what did I decide to do during the busiest year of my entire life? If you guessed “start a new hobby” then you are completely right. One Saturday afternoon while trying to unwind from a v. stressful week, I decided why not crack open the bullet journal that my husband purchased me for Christmas. I always adored the IDEA of bullet journaling but was scard to actually get started because I am NOT an artist. However, I finally decided to dive in after finding some beautiful Zebra midliners that morning at Target and I desperately wanted to find a […]

Dear Haiti, Love Alaine | ARC Review

Dear Haiti, Love Alaine immediately caught my eye at ALA midwinter this year because of its striking cover. I had never heard of it before, but it was GORGEOUS and I knew I had to add it to my TBR immediately. With a release date 8 months in the future, I saved it as one of my special reads for the end of the summer season. When I finally picked it up over the Labor Day holiday weekend it did NOT disappoint, and is easily one of my favorite contemporary reads of the year. I was thrilled by the format […]

Monthly TBR Plan: September 2019

I’ve made a lot of reading resolutions, and one of them is to be better about cultivating a monthly TBR. I know so many bloggers do beginning of the month TBR posts and I always LOVE reading them, so I’ve decided to post my own as well! I will include my physical, e-book, and ARC TBRs as well as a status update of where I am prior to starting my upcoming month’s TBR. Reading Progress Prior To This Month: 40/60* Books Read *So I’ll admit, I did it- I lowered my Goodreads challenge from 70 to 60. I’m sort of […]

Adult Mini Reviews: When We Left Cuba and The Friend Zone

If you hung around my blog last summer/fall, you probably heard me raving about my love for Next Year in Havana, a historical fiction novel that stole my heart with its dual timeline narrative, Latinx protagonists and gorgeous cover. As a first generation Latinx woman myself, I am always always always looking for more representation of my Latinx heritage in literature, and though I’m not Cuban I was deeply invested and moved by the story of the Perez family and their descendants. I was ecstatic to find that there was to be a sequel set in the 1960s following the […]
