I wanted to let you all know that I’m participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon this year!  This is my first time participating, so I’m pretty excited. 😀  To get all the details for this readathon, check it out here!  What I love about this particular readathon is that everyone starts and stops at the exact same time. The readathon starts in my timezone at 8 AM, on Saturday, April… Read More

Hello!  March was a very slow blogging month for me – I think I only wrote 3 posts the entire month.  I sort of went on an unexpected blogging hiatus, but I am happy to say I finally really feel like blogging again!  Luckily, just because my blogging was in a slump, my reading was not.  I still didn’t read a whole lot, but it was better than February, and I thoroughly… Read More

Hello! Can you guys even believe it is March already?!  I can’t wait for the weather to get warmer and the spring flowers to show up!  February was kind of a reading slump-y month for me.  To be honest, I feel like I always read a super small amount in February. 🤔 BOOKS READ I only completed 2 books in February! – A Valentine Secret by Emily Murdoch \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Intermission by Serena Chase \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ STANDOUT BOOK… Read More

Hello! Once again, I’m combining December and January’s wrap up, because it just felt silly to write a separate one for December and then January.  I want to start fresh and stay on track next month, and honestly, if I wrote them separately, I probably wouldn’t get January’s wrap-up up until the middle of February…So, here we are! BOOKS READ December – Letters from Father Christmas by J. R. R. Tolkien \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – The… Read More

Can you guys believe there are only a few days left in 2016?!  I sure can’t…wasn’t summer like, last week?  This past year has been such an experience, especially when it came to blogging.  I made this blog back in February, and I’ve certainly learned a lot!  So far, my blogging experience has been very positive, but now that I’ve been at it for a while, I think it’s time to set… Read More

I think it is such a fun holiday, and I absolutely love reading spooky, atmospheric books in October, and so when I saw this read-a-thon, I just knew I had to participate!  Be sure and check out Lauren’s blog to get all of the details!… Read More

Last week was the last week of the read-a-thon, and while I wasn’t able to actually complete the entire challenge, I think I did pretty well, and I had so much fun! Badges Earned The first book I read this week was Into the Wild (Cat Warriors #1) by Erin Hunter.  My sister has been a huge fan of this series for a while now, and since we both love cats so… Read More

This summer I participated in Books and Quills’ Hedgeathon Summer Reading Challenge.  I had so much fun, and just narrowly finished it (I didn’t think I was going to make it there for a while…I’m not even gonna lie, I finished my last book for this challenge at 11:55 PM on July 31st…*phew*)! The challenge was to read a book related to at least 8 of these prompts (the ones I read… Read More
