Currently Reading, Watching, Listening To, Trying (#9)

ezgif-1-f3fef490bdSince it’s been about a month since the last time  that I made one of these posts, I thought that it would be a good time for an update! (Even though more recently these posts have been about what I’ve been reading, and not watching, listening to, and trying, haha…ha…)

Top Ten Tuesday (#33): Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

Happy Tuesday and TTT day! This week, we’re all going to leave each other’s posts feeling quite hungry, because this weeks prompt is all about food! Now, if you’re a foodie like me, you will have jumped right to your “read” list on Goodreads and made a top 10 list in no time! Books mention snacks that make me want to try them, or eat them again, all the time! So, I will usually remember which books mentioned which foods, and how badly I wanted to eat said foods, haha. Let’s dig in, shall we?

#ARCstravaganza (#14): Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! I was actually able to schedule this post in advance…because this past weekend was not Thanksgiving weekend, and I wasn’t all thrown off, thinking Saturday was Friday, Sunday was Saturday, and Monday was Sunday. Yeah, I was all confuddled last week and posted my post a day late! Sigh. The shame! Anyway, this week it’s on time, and I’m featuring a book that I’m very excited to have gotten a copy of! I received this book from a good friend of mine, and I’ll just say thank you here again for the millionth time! Hehe.

First of all, I would like to say thank you to Never Not Reading for tagging me to complete this awesome book tag created by her! Second, I would like to say that I’m so happy this tag exists now because I LOVE Hocus Pocus (and in fact re-watched it yesterday, haha). Hocus Pocus plus books is like…heaven for me! Also, please feel free to complete the tag, even if I haven’t tagged you! Just be sure to follow the rules!

#ARCstravaganza (#13): Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Or rather, Happy ARCstravaganza day (as I’ve come to call it)! Um wow. So, as some of you may know, Canadian Thanksgiving was yesterday, so most Canadians had the Monday off. Due to working on Saurday (until about 8 pm) and then having Monday off….all day yesterday,  I was under the impression that it was Sunday! I had this post prepped, and just had to add the Insta photo before scheduling it. But I was all out of sorts, and my mental clock is all out of whack! So, here it is today, one day late, because I’m a confused scatterbrain! Haha. Sorry! To learn more about the meme, please continue reading to see the info below, and continue past that to read more about my ARC choice for this week!

Top Ten Tuesday (#32): Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

And we’re back this Tuesday with another exciting prompt…Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes! Yes, I know, I love Autumn way too much. But I’m a strong believer that it’s better to fill your life with things that you like and love, than the opposite. Yes. Positivity! My spellchecker is saying that that is not a real world. Too bad. Anyway, this prompt was harder for me to complete than I’d first imagined. When I first saw the prompt over on The Broke and the Bookish I just kind of smiled to myself, cracked my knuckles, and started a search that I thought would be very short and very yielding. I was so very wrong, and in the end, ended up listing a bunch of books that I have not read yet! Some of them are not published yet, sure, but the rest….What’s my excuse? The upside of this adventure, is that I came across some books that I’d never seen or heard of before! But anyway, on to my top ten list!

                     top-ten-tuesday-halloween-edition

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week! This week’s prompt had me excited a week in advance! I, in fact, created the rough draft for this post last Wednesday or Tuesday, and actually wrote it out on Friday. Hahaha. The tag is top ten book boyfriends/girlfriends and it was so much fun to put together! Continue reading to see who I’ve picked!

Happy Monday, my lovelies! Or rather, Happy ARCstravaganza day (as I’ve come to call it)! And also, happy October aka. Halloween and Oktoberfest Month! Yaaaay. I love both Oktoberfest (mostly due to having grown up in a Germanic country, Austria), and Halloween for too many reasons to count! I mean…look at the Halloween-e-fied theme on here and on all of my other social media! Haha. I’m a bit obsessed maybe? But that’s okay, I think. You can read about my September wrap-up, and future plans for the blog here. But back to ARCstravaganza! To learn more about the meme, please continue reading to see the info below, and continue past that to read more about my ARC choice for this week!

my-banner-w-links-switched

It’s October! What?! How?! I cannot believe it’s been 9 whole months since Melanie and I launched Calendar Girls! We’re so happy to so many of you have stuck with us for so long, and how many awesome participants we’ve picked up along the way! There are so many books that we would not have heard of if you guys had not shared them with us. So thank you for sticking with us, thank you for sharing your faves, and thank you for discussing something we all love…books!

(Please note that there will be no readalong this month, as Melanie and myself are too busy to host one. We are very sorry about this, and will keep you posted about a possible readalong in November!)
