Hello! Friday, June 21st, is the official first day of summer.  To celebrate, Amy @ A Court of Crowns and Quills, Jen @ Pinot and Pages, Heather @ Bookables, Aimee @ Aimee Reads, and Melanie @ Meltotheany are hosting the ultimate, summer readathon!  I’ve been wanting a very relaxed and summery readathon for quite a while now, so when I found out about theirs, I just knew I was going to participate.  The readathon runs from June… Read More

Hey everyone! It is summertime again! 🙌🏼  The summer months are my favorite, and it feels so great to be swimming and gardening again.  Today I’ll be sharing with you all my bookish related goals for the summer.  Typically, I count my summer reading from approximately Memorial Day to Labor Day – late May through early September.  So, I’ve already started working towards those goals. Without further ado, here are my 2019 summer… Read More

Hey everyone!  Two weeks ago, I shared my TBR for the Pagesathon.  Well, the readathon’s final day was on Sunday, so it’s time to share how I did!

Hey everyone!

Anyway, I’m excited to announce that I will be participating in the Pagesathon, hosted by Louisedanielle.reads and the Bookgeekery!  The readathon runs from May 27th through June 9th.  Today, I’m sharing the books that… Read More

Hi friends! Today I’m back with my April wrap-up, and in true Theresa fashion, we’re already halfway through May.  Will I ever post a wrap-up on time? Who knows! Stay tuned…😂 As you all can probably guess from my lack of blog posts last month, I didn’t have a great reading month either.  I ended up only reading two books.  I realize that’s still two books to celebrate, but I was hoping… Read More

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is: Favorite Book Quotes I’ve Read this Year I love quotes!  A good quote can really speak to you and stick with you through life.    It’s so hard for me to pick favorites, though.  So, to give myself less stress, I’ve decided to only include quotes from books I’ve read this year! So, here… Read More

Hello! Today I’m back with another extremely late wrap-up.  Yup, that’s not a typo, it may be nearly May, but I’m finally sharing my March wrap-up. 🙈  For the past few months, I feel like I’ve been in this weird reading and blogging slump, where I want to read and blog and then I just do other things instead.  I’m ready to push through that, though, so hopefully the rest of the… Read More

Hello! It is day two of me hosting Bookending Spring 2019!  Lately, the weather has been so beautiful and it has really been putting me in that springtime mood.  So, for today’s post, I’m sharing with you all some of my favorite books that remind me of spring! Some of these books remind of spring because of the content, others just because of their pretty covers.  Either way, just thinking about these… Read More
