Currently Reading, Watching, Listening To, Trying (#11)

ezgif-1-f3fef490bdIt’s time for another update! As you will see, I haven’t had much time for…well…anything other than work for the past 2 weeks or so. I did manage to watch Stranger Things season 2 right when it was released, and did take a break this past Tuesday night to go see Thor: Ragnarok!

Monthly Wrap-Up (October 2017)

ezgif-4-bea5e63404Another month has gone by! And so quickly too. How does that happen? It must be because I really really love October and Halloween. Probably. Anyway, the past few weeks have been quite busy for me, and I’m actually surprised that I posted as often as I did. Haha. Sometimes I wonder how I do it! Also, as you may notice…I’m using the same GIFs that I used for the September wrap-up, and that’s because I love Halloween and I think that they’re so cute (and funny haha)!

#ARCstravaganza (#16): The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! This week I will be featuring the ARC for a book that I have been looking forward to ever since I heard the announcement that it would be coming out. The first book was initially meant to be a standalone, which was great too. But I really really liked it, and while understanding the author’s desire to keep it a standalone, I also missed the setting and characters a lot. So, when I heard that she would be continuing the story by writing 2 more books, I was overjoyed! Bah! Has this ever happened to anyone else (not necessarily with this book, but another standalone turned series), or do you prefer it when standalones remain standalones?

#ARCstravaganza (#15): The Breaking Light by Heather Hansen

Happy Monday everyone! And also happy #ARCstravaganza day! This week I won’t be featuring the ARC of a future release, but rather a past one. Due to this being a book that I was sent without being given a heads up (haha, happens quite a bit), my reading schedule has been too full to read it around the pub date…or for the months that followed. But, I will be reading this book in November! So if you were curious about it, or this is the first time you’re hearing about it, please keep an eye out for my review!

Top Ten Tuesday (#34): 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?

Top Ten Tuesday (#33): 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!
