Hello! I thought I’d check in and share with you all how I’ve been doing today. I haven’t had a whole lot of time to read, but I already knew I wouldn’t. However, I have read a little bit, and given the circumstances of today, I’m not too disappointed with how much I’ve read at this point. So far, I’ve read 20 pages of The Ugly Teapot. I am enjoying this one,… Read More

Hey everyone! Wonder Week, hosted by Rimpy’s Reads, has come to a close! Last week, it was all about reading, and today, I’m going to share with you all how I did. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to complete the whole row, and make a bingo, but I finished three and a half of my challenges, so I think that was still pretty good for me. My plan was to complete the bottom,… Read More

It’s finally February!!  I don’t know about you, but January felt about three months long.  Last month was also a very emotionally draining and a rather stress-filled month for me for a good chunk of it, too.  So, I’m really glad it’s behind us, and I’m looking forward to happier days in February! Despite all that, I think I still had a pretty good blogging month, and I also managed to read… Read More

Hi everyone!  Today, I’ve got a super exciting post to share with you all.  For 2018, two of my blogging and reading goals were 1) read more classics, and 2) host my own event/reading challenge.  Well, I decided to combine the two, and came up with a 2018 Classics Challenge!  The goal for this challenge is to simply read more classic literature based off the prompts below.  There are eleven prompts, so… Read More

When it comes to books and blogging, my December did pretty great!  While… Read More
