July 2020 TBR

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: 40/100* Books Read *Wish me luck as I try to read more books in 2020 than ever before! Welp, I am […]


2020 Mid Year Bookish Stats

2020 Mid Year Bookish Stats

At the end of every year I usually do a round up post of all of my reading statistics, but this year I thought it would be fun to do it in the middle of the year and compare the mid-year stats to the end of year stats as well, and see if my reading trends continue or change! Total Books Read as of June 30th, 2020: 40/100 Target Audience: I’m actually reading more Adult as of now than I usually do, and really enjoying it! When I look at my monthly TBR posts I see that I do have […]


TTT: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020

TTT: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020

I adore making lists of upcoming releases I’m excited for (and reading those of others!) and I couldn’t resist linking up with Top Ten Tuesday this week to talk about the releases I’m most excited for that are coming out the latter part of this year (and having something positive to look forward to for the rest 2020 is a huge help!) I feel like I say this every year but there are SO many amazing titles coming out, I think the lineup gets better and better each year! If you’re interested in checking out my most anticipated releases from […]

My Finished Home Library Tour!

The time in my life has finally come where one of my major dreams has come true…I finally have my own home library! As I mentioned a few months ago, Max and I bought a new home late last year and one of the highlights was the ability to have a den option that I knew was going to finally be my at home library! While it’s been a slow process getting everything set up over the last 7 months or so, the past few weeks we really made a push to finish setting it up since we’re going to […]

Substitute Summer Vacation Reads

Substitute Summer Vacation Reads

I know I certainly didn’t expect 2020 to take the turn that it has, and in the name of social distancing and social responsibility, I am sure many of us have had to cancel or postpone plans. Personally, Max and I have had to cancel attending two weddings (the weddings themselves were cancelled too), a cruise to the Eastern Caribbean (I would be on it at the moment of writing this post, sigh) and our one year wedding anniversary trip to Disneyworld (we were going to stay at the new Grand Destino Tower resort). Though I recognize we are very […]

Month in Review: March 2020

Well, 2020 has taken quite the turn, hasn’t it? Never in my wildest, anxiety ridden dreams did I imagine that we’d be dealing with an international pandemic this year, or in my lifetime really. As of writing this, I’ve been in my house without leaving for 35 days. We’re incredibly lucky that California took COVID-19 very seriously early on and put a shelter in place order out super early, so luckily things aren’t too bad here though we’re being extra cautious. Therefore, this month’s recap doesn’t have much to report aside from a plethora of homemade meals, a LOT of […]

What’s On My Library List [4]: Social Distancing Edition

What’s On My Library List is an original feature I started to highlight some of my most anticipated reads I have on hold through my local library that I am eagerly waiting for! As many are experiencing in the US and around the world, my state is under a “shelter in place” status until further notice (which I am 100% supportive of! We need to flatten the curve!) I’m hopeful that this will encourage me to read more, although to be 100% honest I’ve been distracted with everything going on that I haven’t gotten as much reading done as I […]
