I hope you had an awesome weekend! I was able to have a three day weekend, which was so nice! The time flew by though and that was not so nice. I’ve been feeling kind of slumpish, but I knew that was going to happen with how my month of August went in terms of reading and not really enjoying what I was reading. I was able to finish two books though; one a novella.
Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz
Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard (3 out of 5 stars)
I enjoyed Shattered Blue so much and you can check out my review OVER HERE. Queen Song was a good short read and a novella in the Red Queen series. It didn’t blow me away like Red Queen did, but it was still a good read. I ended up putting Never Always Sometimes back on my bookshelf. I’m not in the mood for it and I don’t want to force myself to read it and end up not liking it. Instead, I chose to read another Netgalley I received.
Time to Die by Caroline Mitchell
It sounds really good and it’ll be released at the end of this month. Murders, serial killers, YES PLEASE! I will of course be doing a review on it as soon as I finish it. This weekend I got two books in the mail and I was pretty excited, because they came three days early. I’ll just include them here instead of waiting until the end of the month for a book haul post.
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
First I must point out how amazing these book covers are! I can’t wait to reread Everything, Everything. I read an eARC of it and loved it so much. Vengeance Road was one of my most anticipated releases for this year, so I had to get it! So stoked about it. 🙂
My cousin Michelle came over on Saturday to drop off Bella. I’m dogsitting her again for a week. We also went to take her son Trace to get his first haircut. That was cute even though he was not happy about it.
Here’s a picture of Bella and then of Trace petting my pup Dax.
I am in the process of redoing my TBR book jar. I love my red jar I got a couple months ago, but now that I went to get colored paper, you can’t really see that they are colorful in the jar. I need a different one at some point. I’m redoing it, because I deleted a bunch of e-books and lost track of what I added and didn’t add to it. I’m not finished with it yet. There’s about 200 pieces of paper I need make and fold. I got tired of doing it half way through. lol. If my printer had ink it would have made things so much easier!
Here is ColbyJack forever making things difficult. He’s too cute to move though, so I tried to work around him when doing my book jar. I had to unfold all those little white papers to write down all the book titles to add to the colored strips I made.
And a picture of my pup Dax, his face is just too cute not to share this picture with everyone, lol.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of things with doing more reviews. I’ll probably finish the audiobook of Bone Gap today and do a review on that. I’ll also be starting the sixth Harry Potter book this week too. I have a few tag posts coming soon too. Off to work! I hope you have a great day! Bye! ❤

Vengeance Road and Everything, Everything sure do look pretty. They’ve always caught my attention. I have to say that the TBR book jar is a pretty interesting idea, I’ve never thought of that ! :O Nice post, by the way ! 😉
I love the covers for both and Everything, Everything was just as great as the cover. 🙂 The TBR definitely helps when you have no idea what you want to read next. It’s interesting to randomly draw a book out to read. Thanks! 🙂
Yeehh ! For the moment, I just have too many books I want to read so I think I’ll handpick them one after the other. But I’m pretty sure there will come a day where I’ll end up exploring that jar idea ! 😀
I have too many that I want to read as well, but I never know which one of those I want to read next lol! 🙂

Those two covers are so gorgeous!! And the dogs and your cat are adorable!! That’s so annoying that you had to rewrite all the titles for you TBR jar – arhh so tedious!!
I actually had to rewrite them TWICE! Once to just make a list of them in my notebook and then again to put them on the new slips of paper, which I haven’t finished yet. lol. My hand got tired of writing and I got bored of it. I have like 100 more to write. AHHH!
Oh that’s so annoying!!
It totally was! And the fact that I bought colorful paper, because I thought it would look cute and you can’t even tell that they are colorful in the red jar. LOL. I feel like I did all this for nothing, lol. I have to find a big clear jar now.
Hahaha omg!! At least everything will be working out now!!
