2018 Reading Challenge

Yet another year has passed! My 2017 reading challenge was to read 50 books. I also wanted to spend less money on books and cut down on their overall number on my shelf (as mentioned in earlier posts). I met these goals, reading tons of great books and discovering some new authors (Brandon Sanderson :P)… Continue reading 2018 Reading Challenge


*Update* My Expansive Backlog

Five or six months have passed since my last post. At that time, I had about 80 physical books but was hoping to cut down significantly. I vowed to stop purchasing books just because the cost was under $4 (the minimum price+shipping on Amazon if the book falls to $.01. It's weird, I know, but… Continue reading *Update* My Expansive Backlog

My Extensive Backlog: Books that Looked Great, but Then…

I've always had a huge backlog of books I want to read, but since moving to a new city (and discovering a great bookshop), things have spiraled out of control. Currently, there are 80 books on my shelf that need to be cracked open. That does not include the hundreds of books on my Goodreads… Continue reading My Extensive Backlog: Books that Looked Great, but Then…

Review: The Book of Beloved By Carolyn Haines

Since last weekend, I have been reading The Book of Beloved by Carolyn Haines. I requested this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review. It is the first book in Haines' newest series, Pluto's Snitch. The story begins in Savannah, Georgia, with a young female school teacher, Raissa James, who lost her husband… Continue reading Review: The Book of Beloved By Carolyn Haines

Life May Be Perfect, but a Temporary Escape is Still Necessary

I've been at this blogging thing for several days now, and its becoming more clear that this was a great idea. At first it seemed impossible to think of anything to write about, but now ideas are starting to flow. I've already found that they materialize most often while I am working. Eventually, I'd like… Continue reading Life May Be Perfect, but a Temporary Escape is Still Necessary

Review: The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

The Forgotten Garden is by Kate Morton, an author whose novels I have previously read. Because I am familiar with her work, this lead to the plot feeling somewhat predictable. However, it is still a great story. The novel explores how family, specially mothers, shape identity throughout generations of a family. Female characters are much more… Continue reading Review: The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

Abstaining From Facebook Might Free Up Some Time…

It's been quite awhile since I updated this blog. Like everyone else with great blog-starting intentions, life got busy. Since last December, I have graduated college, moved to another state, and started my career.   While many things have changed, I'm still a book lover that wants nothing more than to read and escape into another… Continue reading Abstaining From Facebook Might Free Up Some Time…

Just Anotherer Reader

Have you ever found something amazing and just had to share it with the world? I have been thinking about starting some sort of blog for awhile now, mostly because I lead an interesting life (and am motivated by this article). Lately though, after reading many books that I ordinarily wouldn't, it feels like there are things… Continue reading Just Anotherer Reader
