Sunday Funday: Week in Review [8]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [8]

Sunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back! This week has been more of a productive one and less of a fun one. I’ve been busy with work (although I got an extra day off this weekend, so that was nice!), had to take my car in for some repairs, grocery shop, helped finalize plans for a mini family reunion in two weeks, and catch up on posting some reviews. Currently Reading: So far this is pretty good, although […]

Stacking the Shelves [3]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by  Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc! So this summer I’ve been working quite a bit to put away money for (hopefully) graduate school, but I’ve also been treating myself occasionally! This week I got two packages from my two favorite places (Nordstrom & Amazon) so it was a good week thanks to UPS. Books I Bought: I was SO excited to order this because The Raven Boys was my first five star read in a few […]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [7]

Sunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back! July 7-July 14, 2014 150 Followers! This week I reached 150 followers! I know that this isn’t a huge amount for many bloggers, but for me it’s an exciting milestone in my blogging progress. I’ve found the book blogging community to be so welcoming and supportive and I’m excited to keep growing. So thank you so much to everyone who reads and follows! I just received a copy of Allegiant today, […]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [6]

Sunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back! June 30-July 6, 2014 As most of you know, I just got back from Hawaii this week! I got home in time to celebrate the fourth of July with my family and boyfriend, and yesterday we saw The Fault In Our Stars movie (which was quite faithful to the book, and I’ll give more of my thoughts on it later this week) and ate at my favorite Japanese restaurant (we have […]

Stacking the Shelves [2]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by  Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc! So a bunch of books I had requested came in all at once at the local library (funny how they always seem to come in at once, huh?) I’ve really been anticipating Love Letters to the Dead due to a couple of factors: 1) The cover is absolutely gorgeous and 2) Stephen Chbosky, author of the Perks of Being a Wallflower, has spoken so highly about it. I’m about a […]

Sunday Funday: Week in Review [4]

Sunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back! June 16-June 22, 2014 I just ended the first two weeks of my summer job, which accounts for the slower pace of posts going up lately. Now that things have settled down and I’ve gotten back into the groove of working, I’ll be posting more regularly! I was also nominated this week for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, so thanks so much to Stefani from Caught Read Handed for nominating me! […]

Today is my first time participating in the weekly meme hosted over at Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc! Borrowed from my Local Library: I started Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour first since I’ve seen so many bloggers freaking out over Morgan Matson’s newest book Second Chance Summer. This is my first read by Matson and I’m finding her style is easy to get into and comfortable, and listening to the narration is like chatting with a good friend. An Abundance of Katherines is my […]

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is Top Ten Characters Who___ (fill in the blank)! I’ve found myself reading a lot of books lately with really fantastic side-kick type characters, so I decided to go with Top Ten Characters I’d Love to Have as a Best Friend!         1) Harry Potter from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince– Because who wouldn’t want Harry Potter as their BFF?             2) Zuze from Daughter of Smoke and […]

Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read. This category crosses quite a few genres for me! Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read : 1) Lolita by Vladamir Nobokov- There’s never been quite as elegant, distracting, and unreliable narrator as Humbert Humbert. 2) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor- Taylor takes on the most unique and elegant approach to the genre of YA angels-and-demons/paranormal romance I’ve read. She’s unparalleled in world building, and her detail-rich writing takes […]
