30 Day Book Challenge // Day Ten.

Hi 🙂

I am so glad it is Friday! I am looking forward to a weekend of catching up on sleep and reading. The work week went by really fast, but it was also really busy at work. I definitely got overwhelmed a lot with work this week and took it out on my books by not reading as much as I usually do. Earlier today I did my Friday Finds post and you can check it out over here in case you missed it. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a post about some of the books I added to my to be read list this week. 🙂 Onto day ten…

Day 10: Favorite childhood book.

563859

Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar. I loved this book as a kid. It was so fun and filled with so many amazing things! I remember one of my teachers  would read a chapter to us every week from this book. It was one of the greatest parts of going to school as a kid. I still think Mrs. Gorf is scary! I sadly don’t remember exactly everything in the book, because it has been SOOOOOO long since I have read it. I am going to do a reread of it; I want to relive part of my childhood and the book is so great. I think every kid should read this book or every parent should read this book to their kids! I still have a copy of it and I have to be careful with the pages, because it’s so old. I love it though. 🙂

Last year I read the first chapter of this book to my niece and nephew, because I wanted them to experience this amazing book. I took this picture last year of my nephew Jackson. He was totally into the book and it was a proud moment for me, lol.

Friday Finds #5.

FridayFinds-ADailyRhythm2

FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased). Hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

Hi 🙂 It’s Friday again, so I am here to share some of the books that I added to my TBR list over at my Goodreads. I only added 14 this time, which is a little less than what I did last week. I tried to stay away from adding books this week and I also been kind of busy this week too, so I didn’t look at too many books. I won’t include them all, but here are some of the books I added.

The Death House by Sarah Pinborough
Spelled by Betsy Schow
Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn
Mosquitoland by David Arnold
Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence
Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

I also added Carry On to my TBR list (which is a Simon Snow story and spin off from Fangirl). You can check out my post about Fangirl over here.

I recently got approved for some books I wanted to read on Netgalley, so I am also going to share those below. I tried not to request too many, since I don’t want to overwhelm myself and I have books I recently bought that I want to read too. I’m going to do reviews on them all as soon as I read them, which I am hoping to start reading in the next week or so.

Abomination by Gary Whitta
Uncle John’s Beer-Topia by Bathroom Readers’ Institute
**Netgalley has it as “beer-topia” and Goodreads has it as “beer-vana”**

I also got Charlie, Presumed Dead by Anne Heltzel on Netgalley, which I showed in my last Friday Finds I believe. I am a sucker for a good beer, so I really wanted to read Beer-Topia and I also love the Bathroom Reader books; so it’s two good things in one! I am excited about reading these books and doing reviews on them.

Are any of these on your TBR list? What are some books you found this week? Or link me to your post!

I’ll be back later to do my day ten post for the 30 day book challenge and I’ll end this post with a totally cute picture of my kitten ColbyJack that I took a week or so ago. He’s obsessed with sleeping on the bookcase now. I had to edit the picture with him dreaming of a fish, because you know, he probably was.
