Happy Friday! 🙂

Over the last couple months I have been really picky about what I am adding to my TBR. My Goodreads “to-read” shelf was getting out of control and it still kind of is. I ended up making a new TBR shelf a couple months ago to kind of control it a little better. Therefore, I now have my main TBR shelf of the books that I know for sure I want to read and then the other shelf of the books that sound good and I may or may not read. It kind of helps, but I still need to figure out a better way to organize it all, haha.

Anyway, I am rambling! Onto the books I added to my TBR this week. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

The Truth by Jeffry W. Johnston
Saved by the Bell by Joelle Sellner
The Nest by Kenneth Oppel
First Year by Rachel E. Carter

Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics
The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow
Underwater by Marisa Reichardt

After going a few weeks without really adding to any of my TBR shelves, it was nice finally adding something new! I’ve mostly just been focusing on reading what I have and not looking too hard for more books to read like I have been. My main problem now is that I buy way more than I actually read, so I think if I don’t look for new books CONSTANTLY, then I might not buy as many either.

I’ve been wanting to try out comics/graphic novels and I recently found out there are Supernatural (the TV show) and Bob’s Burgers (the TV show) comics/graphic novels and I was excited to see a Saved by the Bell one! I think I may try them out soon! The boyfriend even said he would be down to read some comics and graphic novels with me and he hates reading. 😛 All of these other books I added sound like they’ll be really good and interesting as well.

Have you added any new books to your TBR? Have you read any of the ones that I added? Let me know! 🙂

I am making slow progress on my Halloweenie TBR, which is sad. I was just stuck on my last read, because it was just so boring for me! I dreaded reading it a lot of the time and just barely read anything because of that. Sigh. Hopefully I can catch up with my Halloween TBR over the weekend and get lots of reading done! I was able to finish a few audiobooks this week though and working on mini reviews for those that I may post next week. My reviews are slacking over the last couple months and so has my blogging. So much going on in my life last month and this month, to be honest and reading/blogging has kind of been on the back burner a little bit. Hopefully everything gets back to normal soon though!

Anyway, I better get to work! Feel free to check out some of my recent posts linked below!

Hey!

I don’t think I ever been so glad that it’s Friday as I am today. This has been one of the most stressful weeks I’ve had in such a long time. Honestly, its been a crappy month for me in my life outside of my blog. With my crazy week, I didn’t add too many books to my TBR this week, but here are the ones that I did add.

17564519157179436932081137865924397067

Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Shift by Em Bailey
Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver

Did you add any new books to your TBR? Have you read any of the ones that I added? Let me know! 🙂

Sorry for this super short post, but hopefully you guys like some of these books! They all sound really good to me and I love OUAT, so Red’s Untold Tale sounds good. Honestly, I have so much going on and its just been a crazy week. A big thing going on is my dog (Dax) is pretty sick, so its been pretty emotional for me. I’m sure you guys have seen how much I love both my cat and my dog. I’m hoping he’s okay and we’re doing all we really can do right now. Today he is getting an x-ray done. I’m crossing my fingers that he’s okay after everything. He’s only 5 years old, so he’s pretty young and I guess I didn’t expect something to happen to him now.

Anyway, enough sadness! I’ll be posting my September wrap up, my September book haul, and my Halloween TBR, sometime next week. I really want to try to finish The Water Travelers and Deathly Hallows before the end of September, so I can include them in my wrap up. I haven’t made much progress in the Deathly Hallows audiobook (it’s 21 hours of listening time!!), because my mind has been elsewhere this week and I haven’t been able to focus on it. We’ll see how that goes though. I think that’s it for me today. I hope you enjoy your Friday! Bye ❤

Hey 🙂

I am so disappointed in myself when it comes to reading this month, even though I actually planned for this month to be a slow one as far as reading goes. I guess I didn’t plan for it to be THIS slow with a big reading slump thrown into it. Sigh. I haven’t read much so far this month, but I also haven’t really been finding too many books to add to my TBR this month as well. Last week I didn’t add any books and this week I only found three books to add to my TBR. These all sound like they’ll be awesome reads and I really love the book covers! Since I only found three, I will include the Goodreads descriptions for you guys.

18005086The Nobody Show by Jonathan Dunne

Goodreads Description: The Nobody Show is an accident waiting to happen…
Old Castle (population 666 … 665 … 664) is a town ravaged by unemployment. The magic is gone and the economy is in the gutter, but newest dole statistic, Arthur Lawless, has a dream…
Arthur wants to chase down his childhood dream to build his own circus. He makes it his mission to put on The Greatest Show on Earth – Old Castle’s slice of Earth, at least…


24910975Inconceivable by Tegan Wren

Goodreads Description: A popular, young royal couple can’t produce an heir? INCONCEIVABLE!
When Ozarks native Hatty goes “whole hog” during karaoke, she catches the eye of Prince John. He isn’t what she expects the heir to a small European nation to be: he’s affable, witty, and isn’t put off by her tell-it-like-it-is demeanor. Their flirtation should be short lived, but a force stronger than fate—Hatty’s newspaper editor—assigns her to cover the royals. After spending time together, she and John soon begin dating, and Hatty finds herself making headlines instead of writing them.

But challenges loom that are even more complicated than figuring out how to mesh Hatty’s journalism career with life at Belvoir Palace. Hatty and John soon find themselves embroiled in an unusual sex scandal: they can’t produce an heir. Tabloids dub Hatty a “Barren-ess,” and the royals become irate. Hatty politely tells them to shove it. But beneath her confident exterior, she struggles to cope with a heartbreak that invades her most intimate moments with John. Pressured to choose between invasive medical procedures and abandoning John’s claim to the throne, the couple feels trapped until a trip to Ethiopia shows them happy endings sometimes arrive long after saying “I do.”


21525995In Real Life by Jessica Love

Goodreads Description: Hannah Cho and Nick Cooper have been best friends since 8th grade. They talk for hours on the phone, regularly shower each other with presents, and know everything there is to know about one another. There’s just one problem: Hannah and Nick have never actually met.

Hannah has spent her entire life doing what she’s supposed to, but when her senior year spring break plans get ruined by a rule-breaker, she decides to break a rule or two herself. She impulsively decides to road trip to Vegas, her older sister and BFF in tow, to surprise Nick and finally declare her more-than-friend feelings for him. Hannah’s romantic gesture backfires when she gets to Vegas and meets Nick’s girlfriend, whom he failed to mention. And it turns out his relationship status isn’t the only thing he’s been lying to her about. Hannah knows the real Nick can’t be that different from the online Nick she knows and loves, but now she only has one night in Sin City to figure out what her feelings for Nick really are, all while discovering how life can change when you break the rules every now and then.

What books have you added to your TBR this week? Link me to your posts if you have one! 🙂

With this month being super slow for me with reading, it has kind of hurt my blogging as well. I never wanted that to happen, so I am going to start to think of some new types of blog posts I can do aside from what I usually do. I know this isn’t the best month for reviews for me. I am working on my “Halloweenie” TBR for October and I’ll be sharing that with you guys closer to October. I plan to read some scary/creepy books throughout the month and I am excited. I also got some cool Halloween bookmarks as well, but currently waiting for them to be delivered. I plan to use those throughout the month!

Random: the new album from The Front Bottoms is pretty amazing! 🙂 Okay, I am off to work! It’s Friday and that’s one of my busiest days at work! I hope you guys have an awesome Friday! And thanks for bearing with me throughout this month so far. Hopefully you’ll see lots more from me soon! You guys are awesome! Bye! ❤

Hi 🙂

This week has felt like it was never-ending. It just dragged on and on. I am so excited that it’s Friday, because it’s a three day weekend! I just need to get through today and then I can catch up on sleep and maybe read some. I’ve been reading super slow this week, but I don’t mind it since I am trying to take a small break from the chaos of it all. I’m slumpish and not liking anything I read lately, so I think I am totally burned out and need a kind of break. I say “kind of break”, because I plan to still read, just not excessively.

Anyway, I am rambling, so here are the books that I added to my TBR this week. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

9462812235246102371873625729250

What books did you add to your TBR this week? Let me know in the comments and link me to your posts if you’ve done one! 🙂

Random Bookish Talk:
+ I am currently reading Queen Song, Shattered Blue, and Never Always Sometimes. To be honest though, most of my attention is on Shattered Blue right now.
+ I am currently listening to Bone Gap. To be honest though, I listened to thirty minutes of it yesterday and haven’t listened to it again. Maybe I will today.
+ I started coloring in my Secret Garden coloring book and I used the wrong orange, got annoyed, and I haven’t picked it up since. I am tempted to buy a new one, because I had big plans and ideas for that page.
IMG_1637 + I deleted 40 e-books from my Amazon account that I was pretty sure I would never read, but my e-book count is still insane.
+ Also, I’ve already bought eight e-books and it’s only the fourth day of September, sigh. I’m addicted.
+ Impatiently waiting for my copies of Vengeance Road and Everything, Everything to come in the mail! I NEED THEM NOW! They are supposed to be here Tuesday, I guess. 😦 I want to reread Everything, Everything!
+ I got a new bookshelf last weekend. I now have three and my new one is almost filled up too, sigh.

Hi! 🙂

I am so happy that it’s Friday! It has been a pretty exhausting week, so I am looking forward to a weekend of tons of naps and finishing up The Knife of Never Letting Go. I also kind of feel like I’m getting sick, which I am really crossing my fingers I’m not. I just got over a cold earlier this month! Sigh. Here are the books that I added to my TBR this week. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

I posted my August book haul post last night and it was pretty crazy. You can check that post out OVER HERE! I also did a review for Mosquitoland OVER HERE yesterday as well! It’s going to be a pretty busy day at work today, so I should probably get to that! I hope you guys have an awesome Friday! Bye! ❤

Hi 🙂

Super stoked that it’s Friday! The boyfriend started a new job this week, so he’ll be starting to have weekends off work with me and this week is the first weekend! I failed at getting much of anything read (or listened to) this week. I was able to add some books to my TBR though! You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend! 

2359223519542831Smoke Gets in Your Eyes PBK mech.indd2495185116074758

Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne
Damage Done by Amanda Panitch
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty
The Straw King by Danielle Paige
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas

Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke
A History of Glitter and Blood by Hannah Moskowitz
Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas
The Committed by Justin Mermelstein
The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman

These all sound exciting! I’m actually really excited that The Straw King (another Dorothy Must Die novella) will be released soon. The Scarecrow is actually one of the characters that I was more interested in reading about. After the complete fail of Heart of Tin, I am hoping The Straw King is better! A few of these I put on my main TBR list. I created a new shelf over on Goodreads for the books that I definitely see myself reading and the ones that I want to read, but not in any rush to do so. Hopefully that’ll keep me a little more organized since I have so many books on my TBR.

What books did you add to your TBR this week? Let me know in the comments and link me to your posts if you’ve done one!

Hopefully I’ll have my August book haul post up in the next week or so. I’m just waiting on some books to come in the mail! Check out some of my other posts from this week linked below.

Hi 🙂

It’s Friday again! I am so excited that it’s Friday, because I will be heading to the beach after work for the weekend! We are spending the weekend on the beach for my mom’s birthday! She was able to get a room at one of the hotels for FREE! It’s gonna be so nice waking up to seeing the beach! I plan to try to get some good sunrise/sunset pictures; it’s a must. Here are some of the books that I added to my TBR. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin

Far From You by Tess Sharpe
Divine Scream by Benjamin Kane Ethridge
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg

I am so stoked about Felicia Day’s book! I really can’t wait to read it! I am pretty freaking excited about all of these other ones too. I am in love with the book cover for Divine Scream and The Thing About Jellyfish. These all sound like really awesome reads, so I can’t wait to get to them! What books did you add to your TBR this week? Let me know in the comments and link me to your posts if you’ve done one! 🙂

I am planning to take The Wrath and the Dawn along with Dean Winchester to the beach with me this weekend! I am hoping to finally start the book this weekend. I also miss my Supernatural boys, so I will be taking Dean with me. I love them all, but he’s my favorite. I am really excited to finally start The Wrath and the Dawn soon. So many people in the read-along have already started or finished the book and they are so excited and loving it and I am feeling so left out right now, lol! I want to be in love with it too!! Let’s hope I can get some reading done this weekend!

Say “HI” to Dean! & Say “HI” to Willowdean!

IMG_0923IMG_0916

I also got this cute Dumplin’ pin yesterday in the mail! I have been waiting for it and I am glad it’s finally here. It’s so cute! I can’t wait for the book! It’s one of the books that I am most excited about this year. Maybe I’ll take her to the beach with me too (maybe my cutout of her and not the pin though, I don’t want to lose it!). #dumplinpose everywhere! I also just realized that I have my DEAN bookmark and my WillowDEAN pin. 😛 everything is just meant to be!

I apologize for the lack of reviews this month so far. I have honestly not really finished a book that wasn’t a novella or that wasn’t the first book in a series. I also listened to one audiobook this entire month, which is kind of sad since I probably would have had at least five done by now. I will be doing a review on The Wrath and the Dawn though; I just have to read it! I may be a little absent this weekend due to being away at the beach for the weekend. Add me on Instagram, because I am sure I’ll be posting lots of pictures; heyyitsashley.

I hope you all have a great Friday! Bye!

Hi 🙂

I hope everyone has had a good week so far! It went by pretty quickly and I am super stoked for the weekend, because that’s when I get most of my reading in! Here are some of the books that I added to my TBR. You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend! 

23295974225572762448027623085217345314

206407551083878721518344219369376457229

The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel
Pawn by Aimee Carter
The Stars Turned Away by Lisa Maxwell
Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

These all sound pretty amazing and I’m really excited to eventually read them one day, lol! I add so many books to my TBR that I have no clue when I ever will, sadly. 😦 It’s nice adding them though and knowing that I will never run out of things to read! I did get the e-book Brew for free last Friday, so that’s cool. What books did you add to your TBR this week? Let me know in the comments and link me to your posts if you’ve done one! 🙂

In other news, I made a new book jar. I saw these cute jars at Target yesterday and decided to get one since it was only $3. I took all my little papers from my bowl that I was using and added them to the jar. I also bought the Insurgent DVD, because my mom really wanted to see the movie. Plus, I had to have it, duh! She was excited that I got it. I had her read the books, so she loves them lol.

IMG_0804IMG_0798

I may have bought a book or two, but I’ll save those for another time. 😛 I’ll probably do a mid-month book haul depending on if I get more books or not. I’m really trying not to though. I have a lot of preorders coming soonish; most being next month, so I need to save my money. I did get quite a few e-books this month though, but they were all free so far besides maybe one or two.

Last month I did pretty good with doing more reviews, so I need to get back into the swing of things this month. I don’t see a need to review the novellas and that’s all I’ve finished so far this month. But hopefully in the next week or two I’ll have some. I haven’t even been listening to any audiobooks and I usually review those too. I haven’t really been in the mood for them so far this month.

I guess that’s all! I hope you have a wonderful Friday! And if you still want to read what I have to say, then you can always check out some of my other recent posts. I’ll even link them for you below to make it easier for you! 😉

Hi 🙂

I will just get straight into showing you some of the books that I added to my TBR and talk about them afterwards. Ahhh, so many awesome sounding books added to my TBR this week! You can see more of my TBR list over on my Goodreads account over here and feel free to add me as a friend!

This is Not a Love Story by Suki Fleet

2281732223879893130185142331074823309655

The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
Truest by Jackie Lea Sommers
The Hallowed Ones by Luara Bickle
Rules for 5/50 Chances by Kate McGovern
Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten

I am pretty much beyond excited about every single one of these. I think my number one that I am most excited to read is Crane! It’s a headless horseman retelling and I LOVE retellings and the headless horseman. I am obsessed with the TV show Sleepy Hallow and that is where my love for it all started, so I am excited! These all sound absolutely wonderful though, for real! 🙂

I got my Kindle in the mail yesterday and that was super exciting…and then I opened it. I was kind of disappointed with it. It was a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be. I guess because I have been reading all my e-books on my iPad mini, I figured it was going to be a little bigger than what it really is; sigh. FYI: the Kindle pictured on the box makes it look like the screen is so much bigger than it really is. I’m sure I’ll get used to it though. I mean, I do read on my little iPhone screen sometimes too and the Kindle is definitely bigger than that.

In case you missed them, linked below are a few of my other posts that I’ve done this week. I’ll be back sometime over the weekend with my thoughts on Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and also my July recap of the books I read throughout the month! Be on the look out for those! 🙂

Hi 🙂

Happy Friday! I am so glad this week is over, because I am tired and I barely got any reading done this week. So I am looking forward to a weekend of catching up on all of my reading. If don’t start reading more, then I will never get around to all of the books on my TBR; like the ones I’m going to show you today!

237460042566338276171192269274023677341

Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin
The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle
I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells
Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin
We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

13272661219601251592622334635818459190

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
The Tenant by Roland Topor
Liars and Losers Like Us by Ami Allen-Vath
The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz

I am pretty excited about every single one of these books that I added to my TBR this week; probably more than most weeks! They all sound fantastic and the covers are amazing! I can’t get over the cover for Black-Eyed Susans though! After reading the first two books in the Jasper Dent (I Hunt Killers) series, I was glad to find I Am Not A Serial Killer. I love books like that, so I am excited! I was able to get the e-book of Welcome to the Dark House this week; you know, because the eleven other e-books I got this month clearly weren’t enough, lol! I believe it was $0.99, so I couldn’t pass it up. I can’t wait to get to all of these. Now I just need to read more and read faster!

What are some of the books that you added to your TBR this week? Leave a comment and link me to your posts!


I have some pretty cool and exciting news! I was gifted a $250 Amazon gift card yesterday! Can you imagine all of the things (AKA BOOKS) I could get with $250?! I am pretty excited about it! So excited that I really have no clue what I even want to get, lol. Most of the books I am really looking forward to aren’t released yet, so maybe I’ll save some of this money to cover all of my pre-orders!

I was thinking of possibly getting a Kindle. I read my e-books on my iPad and iPhone and it’s totally killing my eyes. I’m pretty sure it plays a role (I also work in front of a computer for 8.5 hours at work M-F) in why I now have to wear glasses! For two years I was only reading e-books and for five years my job has been working in front of a computer.

Here is a random picture of my cat ColbyJack being cute.
He likes to chill under tissue paper.

Anyway! I think that’s all for this post! I’ll link you below to some of my other posts I did this week! I have a bunch of tag posts to do that I will hopefully be able to do some this weekend. Last weekend my internet wouldn’t work the entire weekend, so I wasn’t able to get any done then. Also, my computer has been crappy as always even aside from the internet issues, but hopefully finally getting it fixed this weekend as well.

I bought this balloon today just because it’s Friday!
I hope you all have an awesome Friday! ❤

Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly

I am very excited about all of these books! 🙂 They all sounder wonderful and now I just need to read faster, so I can read all these books I’m finding! I hope I live to be a hundred, just so I can read all of the books that I want to read! My TBR is crazy long. I was emailed by someone at Penguin about Trouble is a Friend of Mine and they sent me an e-book of it! So I am really excited to read it, because I had it on my TBR to begin with and it sounds like it’ll be a really good and fun read! Expect a review for that soonish. I plan to read it at some point this month.

What are some of the books that you added to your TBR this week? Leave a comment and link me to your posts!

Remember how I said I was scared the library was going to give me all the e-books I requested all at once? Yeah, that’s starting to happen. They are giving me all of them except the one that I need! I really regret not purchasing the book club book at the beginning of the month like I usually do. I figured I would get it from the library this time, because at the time I was trying not to buy books. I was going to buy the e-book version, but it’s more expensive than the paperback and I can’t justify doing that! By time I got the book from Amazon, the month would be closer to being over. It says I’m next in line, but it’s said that all month. Sigh.

Here are some other posts that I’ve done this week in case you missed them and want to check them out. Linked below. 🙂

I hope you all have an awesome Friday!

Hi! 🙂

I hope you all had a good week! It was a pretty busy one for me when it comes to work. I’m so glad it’s almost the weekend! I added tons of books to my TBR this week, so here are just ten of those books. You can always see more of my TBR list on my Goodreads over here.

1353365013580846159444061604508821521240

Th Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
My Life with the Walter Boys by Ali Novak
Doll Bones by Holly Black
Charm & Strange by Stephanie Kuehn
Streelights Like Fireworks by David Pandolfe

2275212723278532247336002524064825756328

The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
Alive by Scott Sigler
The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong
Armada by Ernest Cline
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

These all look like good reads, so I’m excited about them all. There are so many potentially good books and it sucks when you want to read them all and can’t right away! lol. I am loving all the book covers for these books as well. Books with amazing book covers makes it hard not to want to own them all! 😛

13068707

I did find this audiobook called My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher and it’s read by David Tennant! If you don’t know who that is then OMG! It’s the actor that plays the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who. My favorite Doctor! So of course I am going to listen to this and probably start it today. It sounds like a really good book too, so that’s a plus.

Goodreads Description: “Ten-year-old Jamie hasn’t cried since it happened. He knows he should have – Jasmine cried, Mum cried, Dad still cries. Roger didn’t, but then he is just a cat and didn’t know Rose that well, really. Everyone kept saying it would get better with time, but that’s just one of those lies that grown-ups tell in awkward situations. Five years on, it’s worse than ever: Dad drinks, Mum’s gone and Jamie’s left with questions that he must answer for himself.This is his story, an unflinchingly real yet heart-warming account of a young boy’s struggle to make sense of the loss that tore his family apart.”

Random Talk:

I am currently kind of in a reading slump and I am not at all happy about that. Once I finished Made You Up, I haven’t been wanting to completely jump into another book to physically read. I picked up Paper Towns as my next read, but I only read about 30 pages in two days. 😦 I’m trying, but I’m not in the mood for it I guess. I honestly have no clue what I even want to read! It definitely sounds like a reading slump, sigh. I’ve been listening to some audiobooks and that has been okay; I do get into audiobook reading slumps too though, haha. Strange.

completed

I completed my Goodreads challenge. The second time this year, lol! I have to change the amount of books again. I first had it at 50 books, then 80, and now that I completed 80…I need to change it again! That’s exciting!

I am also currently waiting on a ton of e-books from the library, ahhh! I am so nervous that they are all going to come at one time and I’m nervous since I am in a reading slump. OH NO!

That’s all for this post! Here are a few other posts I’ve done recently in case you missed them and want to check them out:

Thoughts: After the End. – my thoughts on the book After the End by Amy Plum.
Thoughts: Made You Up. – my thoughts on the book Made You Up by Francesca Zappia.
Top Ten Tuesday. – hyped books I’ve never read.

Hi 🙂

I added a tons of books since my last FF post! I honestly didn’t even think I added that many until I checked my list to make this post. Cutting it down to 10 books for this post was not that easy! It never is though, lol. I just love books so much and want to read them all! Here are some of the books I added to my TBR:

1916185222607975246119621800184524039424

Random Stuff:

+ I mentioned a couple days ago that I wanted to rearrange the bedroom and then I get this random video from the boyfriend of the completed bedroom. I thought it was really awesome of him that he did that! I was not at all expecting it. The only problem I have with it is that our bed is not centered with the TV, so I’ll have to have him fix that. I also need to move my whiteboard to the other wall next to my corkboard. Overall though, I love the way that it is now! 🙂 See below:

IMG_9178

+ I’m obsessed with taking macro shots of bugs, which is strange, because I hate bugs….all bugs. I have an app on my phone called Camera+ and it has a macro setting. I’m so thankful for the macro setting, because sticking my hand completely down there with the bee would have been so nerve-wracking. It was bad enough with attempting it and praying it wouldn’t fly in my face, hahaha.

IMG_9168

+ I am dogsitting Bella again this weekend. She’s small and cute and cuddles all the time; except she takes up the entire bed and I don’t know how she does it, because she’s so small. 😛

I hope everyone has an awesome Friday! I don’t have work today, so I will probably spend today finishing We Were Liars and starting Made You Up. I also have Hannibal episodes to catch up on. Bye! ❤

Hey! 🙂

I had a good week with adding books to my TBR, although I’m not really sure if that’s a good thing or not since I have so many books on it to begin with! I made another list on Goodreads with the books that I REALLY want to read, so I can be a little more organized with that. Below are some of the books I added to my TBR this week. If you want to see more you can add me over on My Goodsreads.

2414320723299513256793891778868117331819

The Bad Girl and The Good Boy by Karla Luna
The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent
Reawakened by Colleen Houck

2368581925464015226636292061372623363928

Unhappenings by Edward Aubry
All I’ve Never Wanted by Ana Huang
Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace
Life Unaware by Cole Gibson
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins

I am seriously so happy with my book adding this week and these are only some of them! They all look and sound like awesome reads. Some of the best covers I’ve ever seen too! Like…look at the amazingness of The Shadow Queen…OMG I NEED IT NOW!! FYI: Amazingness is probably not a word, BUT Becky Albertalli (author of Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda) totally told me that it was….

IMG_9046

But anyway, there you have it! Some of the books I added to my TBR list. Now if there could just be more time in a day or if  I could stop time, then everything will be right in the world; at least my world! I’ll have all the time in the world to…

Random Blog Talk:

I’ve been tagged to do a bunch of stuff and I swear I will get around to all of them! I’ve been slacking with that. I’ve been trying to do one a week, so I am not filling up my blog with only tags. I want to have other content too, like all the book reviews that I am failing at doing, sigh. I need to sit down and get organized. I know I’ve mentioned that in another post. I honestly have tons of things I need and want to do as far as my blog goes. Finding the time…well maybe the motivation is the difficult part. I’ve been wanting to read instead. Not that that is a bad thing…reading is always awesome…hello, this blog though! 😛 It wouldn’t be possible if I didn’t read!

I really like how my blog is going and obviously a lot of people like it too since I have over 200 followers. I just feel like if I organized myself better, then this blog can be even better. And that’s what I really want! I also need to stop putting off fixing my computer. That’s another big reason too. The thought of even turning it on when it’s not working properly gets on my nerves, so I just don’t. I’m planning this weekend to do that though. So everything should be as good as new soon!

I’ve been so good about not buying books this month, so I decided to make the boyfriend take me to Book-A-Million tomorrow. So hopefully a book haul post at some point this weekend! 🙂

And with that…I leave you with a few other posts I’ve done this week:

The Disney Book Tag.
WWW Wednesdays #12.
Bloggers’ Book Club: June.
Summertime Madness Tag.
Friday Finds #19.

I hope everyone has a great Friday! ❤

Hey 🙂

I hope everyone had a good week so far! It was definitely a busy one for me as far as work goes. I’m also in a kind of reading slump…I’m just really bored of the book I am currently reading and just not in the mood for reading it and I feel guilty if I start another knowing that I need to get this one done. Sigh. I did listen to the first three books in the Selection series and I actually really liked them, although I really hate America…ughhh. I didn’t really find too many books this month and it’s kind of depressing. I tried to find some right now as I am doing this post, because I felt like only sharing a couple would be a little lame…you know? So here is what I got for you guys today…

23341894181669362282563116133112

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller
Fields of Elysium by A.B. Whelan

2139615535644141188078723550979

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
The Uninvited: The True Story of the Union Screaming House by Steve A. LaChance
Are We Nearly There Yet? by Ben Hatch
Peter: The Untold True Story by Christopher Daniel Mechling

Are We Nearly There Yet? gives me the National Lampoon vibe, which is pretty cool because I love those movies so much! This is pretty much all I’ve really added to my TBR, so not really that many. These all sound like they might be good, so I guess we’ll see. I think I’m going to redo my TBR over on Goodreads. I need to reorganize it better. If I ever stop being lazy and wipe my computer, then I will get around to that. lol. I’m also going to be redoing my TBR jar too.

6644117

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I was able to get The Iron King on Kindle for $2.99 this week and that was really exciting, because I really wanted to read this book. I also love Julie Kagawa!

TV TALK…

The boyfriend and I finished season three of Orange Is The New Black and we also caught up with season three of Orphan Black, which the season ends Saturday I believe, ugh. I really dislike finishing seasons of my favorite shows, because waiting for the next season is horrible. Hannibal started back up though, so that’s exciting. We haven’t gotten around to watching the episodes yet, but soon! Also, Under the Dome starts back up next week and Big Brother starts next week too, so I am excited about those!

So many of my favorite shows are returning. Doctor Who returns in a few months I believe, so YAY! I am so excited about it, because I am really loving the twelfth Doctor. He is definitely my second favorite! I actually didn’t think I would like him as a Doctor, but OMG I LOVE HIM!! I watch so many shows, lol. This is not even half of them, to be honest. I watch TV as much as I read. I love TV shows like I love buying books…I have so many. I also DVR them and then not watch them until I can marathon them or my DVR is yelling at me that it’s almost full.

Once again I added a bunch of books to my TBR this week, but I’ll share just ten of those with you all! I also got some e-books to share with you as well. I’ll just get right to it…

Lots of awesome books this week though and I am really excited about all of them. I can’t wait to get to reading these books. I really wish there was more time in the day and I had a bigger bank account! Sigh.

KINDLE ADDS:

180812287171637157793662295036825631264

The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Edgewood by Karen McQuestion
The Water Travelers by Daniel Waltz
Dissonance by Mariella Hunt

The Orphan Queen and Clockwork Angel were both on sale ($1.99-2.99) this week, so I had to jump on that! I’m not sure when I’ll read Clockwork Angel, since I ended up not liking TMI so much toward the end of the series, but I couldn’t pass up $2.99 and it’s still $2.99 right now if you’re interested! Sadly, The Orphan Queen is no longer on sale. Edgewood is currently free right now.

The Water Travelers is currently free on Kindle until tonight, so you should totally go get it! I’ve had it on my TBR since February and I was asked recently if I would review it by Daniel Waltz (check out his blog here), so I am definitely excited to read it and do a review!

One of my other blogger friends just self-published her book Dissonance and it sounds like such a good read! I definitely plan to also do a review on her book once I read it. You can check out her blog here. Also, it’s currently only $2.99 on Amazon right now!

Any awesome e-book deals I should know about? Let me know!

Hey 🙂

This week I went a little crazy with adding books to my TBR. I’ve added probably over 30 books! I’m obviously not going to show you 30 books, but I’ll share 10 of them. Choosing which ones to share was such a hard decision! If you want to see other books that I added to my TBR, you can add me over on Goodreads over here. Let’s get started…

1859975419488665229991412292953718107213

Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
Flywheel by Erin Gough
Emancipated by M.G. Reyes
The Devil You Know by Trish Doller
Dance in Shadow and Whisper by Sarah Godfrey

1351744424804505179984742418792518304322

Stung by Bethany Wiggins
Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn
After the Woods by Kim Savage
These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

I am super excited about all of these recent adds! They all sound awesome and I am hoping when I do eventually get to them that they are as good as they sound! I also love all of these books overs! I am most excited about Dumplin’ and Emancipated. 🙂

I also got a couple e-books and a couple approvals for some books from Netgalley this week. Below are the e-books and Netgalley approvals.

25373914183675812349266418692431

The Wedding Virus and Other Snippets by Natalie Shell
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
The Flying Circus by Susan Crandall – Netgalley
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – Netgalley

I already mentioned Everything, Everything in my last post, but figured I would share again since it goes with this post. I started to read The Wedding Virus a little bit to see what it was like before buying and it’s pretty funny and interesting; it is currently 99 cents on Kindle right now. I got Afterworlds when it was on sale for $1.99 and I was so happy about that, because now it’s back to $10.99! I can’t wait to read The Flying Circus, it sounds really good.

I am so excited that it’s Friday, because I have lots of books that I want to read and I feel like I haven’t really gotten much reading done throughout this week. For now though, it’s off to work for me! I hope everyone has a great Friday! Bye! ❤

Hi 🙂

This post has to kind of be a rush post, because I’m doing it late and I have to leave for work in like 20 minutes! I actually surprisingly didn’t add that many books to my TBR this week. Below are the ones I added:

25223919195428419781481773713_COVER.indd

The Legacy Human by Susan Kay Quinn
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
Break or Survive? by Alina Cirstea

232871562090266917788401

The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen
The Big Summer by Jamie B. Laurie
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

I was actually tagged to do that More Happy Than Not Tag that was inspired by the book. I’ll have that posted over the weekend. Even though I didn’t add lots of books to my TBR (probably a good idea lol), I’m still happy with the ones that I did find! They all sound like potentially great reads!

What are some of the books that you added to your TBR this week? Comment below or link me to your posts!

Last day of work and then it’s the weekend! I really want to finish my current read, so it can make it to my May Recap post. I’ll have that posted Sunday or Monday. Yesterday at work I tried to listen to some audiobooks, but ended up not being able to get into them. 😦 I think I am burned out on audiobooks for the rest of this month. We’ll see what happens today.

Here are some of the other posts that I did this week:

  • Random Update – I did this post yesterday and just posted random things going on with me and pictures to go with some things.
  • An Ember in the Ashes – A post about how I felt about this book. Such a great read!

That’s all for this post! I am going to read a few of your posts before I have to leave for work and then catch up on the rest later or throughout the day! BYE! ❤

Hi!

So apparently this is my 100th post! That’s pretty exciting and I am actually pretty proud of it, because last time I tried to use this blog I gave up. I tried it again and failed again. This time I have not failed! 🙂

post-milestone-100-2x

Anyway, on to the books! Below are the books that I added to my TBR this week:

132467369434022452912315728577

Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist
This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

The Secret of the Emerald Sea by Heather Matthews
Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston
Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall
Nocte by Courtney Cole

I didn’t really add many books this week. I usually add a ton more than this! I’m sure that’s not a bad thing though, because my TBR is already out of control as it is! I didn’t get any e-books, but I bought some other books this week. I’ll link you to my book haul post below in case you missed it.

Ghost Story by Peter Straub
A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

I am VERY excited about The Wrath & the Dawn and I need to get a copy ASAP! These others sound like they will be very good too. I think that Orphan Number Eight and Balloon Animals especially sound like they will be really great reads. I am in love with the covers for all of these books! I really need to win the lottery like NOW! I want all of these books and all the other 365 books on my TBR! Blehhh….there are just so many books! I need more time and more money. Sigh.

Hey! 🙂 I am so glad that it is Friday, because I am beyond exhausted this week! I’ve been staying up late and then having to get up early for work. It hasn’t been very fun. Below are some of the books that I added to my TBR this week and I will also be sharing some other books I got this week too (physical & e-books). All linked to Goodreads down below. Shall we get started?

The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes by Anna McPartlin
The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver
Flawed by Kate Avelynn
Starters by Lissa Price

Departure by A.G. Riddle
Lock In by John Scalzi
In Her Shadow by Louise Douglas
Absent by Katie Williams

So those are the ones that I added to my TBR this week and they all sound like they’ll be good reads. Below are the two that I got for Kindle and they were free and still free as of right now. Free is always awesome!

Blood Faerie by India Drummond
The Purgatorium by Eva Pohler

On Wednesday night, the boyfriend and I decided to take a random walk to the Goodwill that is right down the street from our house. I found these books and got them all for $6, which was pretty good. I didn’t find as many books as I thought I would, but I am happy these that I did find.

Dreamcatcher by Stephen King
How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

I read Miss Peregrine, but I only have the e-book version, so when I seen it I had to get it. I also read Alice, but I had to have it! What are some of the books that you found this week? Or link me to your post! 🙂

Lately, I’ve been doing tons of tags, memes, and book hauls (which I love doing) but hopefully soonish I can start doing more reviews. I’ve been kind of slow at reading the last couple months. Also, the majority of the books that I do finish, I haven’t been doing reviews on. I’ve read (and listened) to tons of awesome books so far this year and I should have shared my thoughts more on those besides the few sentences I usually do for end of the month recap posts. I’ve read (and listened) to 49 books so far this year and I’ve only done maybe 12-15 reviews. I think I’ll be changing that up a bit and do more reviews on more books that I finish. Expect more reviews coming soon!

Anyway, that’s all I have for this post! I hope everyone has a great weekend and if you want you can check out some of my other posts from this week linked below.

Bye! ❤

Hi! 🙂 Happy Friday!

I hope you all had a good week! I am so glad the work week is almost over! I am super excited about tomorrow, because the boyfriend actually has a full Saturday off with me! That’s pretty rare and we are going to take Dax to the dog park and maybe go to the Museum of Discovery and Science!

Spend a day of discovery exploring two floors of fascinating interactive exhibits at the Museum of Discovery and Science!”  —- YES PLEASE! 🙂 Hopefully that works out and we get to go. I always go to concerts at a venue that is right next to this museum and I’ve been dying to go. It’s only about 20 minutes from our house, so it’s super close.

Anyway, ready for some books? They will all be linked to Goodreads.

As always, I am excited about all of these. They all sound really interesting and like really good books. I really hope they are! I really hope I actually get to them one day, haha. My current TBR on Goodreads is at 351 and that’s not counting the books I haven’t added to the list that I own. YIKES! I need to start reading faster, lol. Below are books that I got for my Kindle and also a book I got from Netgalley (which this month I have a couple that I need to read).

2184575724325565949624025136810

That Risen Snow by Rob E. Boley
Flypaper by C.K. Vile
The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Potzsch
’89 Walls by Katie Pierson

That Risen Snow I got for free for Kindle; Snow White plus zombies…YES PLEASE! Flypaper I also got for free for Kindle. The Hangman’s Daughter I got for $2 for Kindle. ’89 Walls I got on Netgalley to review. I am really looking forward to all of these books!

As always I added a ton of books, because I can’t control myself as you can see. I have no control when it comes to books. Example: I found out the book for the book club for May, so I decided I would order it on Amazon. The paperback was about $6…PERFECT! Then creeps in my no control and I ended up adding three more books to my cart and my $6 turned into a little less than $50…so there’s that. No control, SEE?! You really don’t even want to know how much I spent on books as a whole JUST in April…like you really don’t even want to know. Collectively I bought 34 books (physical and e-book) in April. It could be more, but from what I can remember it’s about 34 books and I got like over 20 for free with Kindle this month. 50+ books in April, lol! Anyway…let’s not talk about how crazy I am. Hah.

What are some of the books you added to your TBR list? Link me to your post or leave a comment! 🙂

I hope you all have a great Friday and if you are interested, here are some other posts I’ve done this week.

April reads recap probably Sunday, so be on the look out for that! I am off to work now, bye! ❤

This weekend I am really going to try my hardest to finish Throne of Glass or at least most of it. I do like the story so far, but I am only a little over 100 pages in. I am kind of having trouble getting myself to read it though. I do like it, but I guess I am not in the mood for this type of book. It’s for the book club, so I am going to try to read half of it at least, so I can participate in the group chat. Maybe finishing Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda will get me to get more into Throne of Glass; they are two completely different books, so WHO KNOWS!? I guess we’ll see how things go! I am totally in love with Simon vs. though and I’m not even that far into the book yet! You all should definitely add it to your TBR if you haven’t already!

That’s all for this post, I have to get to work! You can check out some of my other posts from the week below:

See you guys later! ❤

Friday Finds #9 & Kindle E-books.

Hey! 🙂 Happy Friday!

Another week gone by and another set of books added to my TBR list. I also have some more Kindle e-books that I got this week to share with you all too! I think this week I went a little crazy with adding a lot of books, so I am only going to share 10 of them. I found a lot on Pinterest this week and last week and I finally decided to go through my book board again and add to Goodreads. I haven’t even tackled the pins that have multiple books on them to see if I will like any of those. I am kind of scared of those right now, to be honest. Hahah. Maybe one day. I think I should probably focus on what I have right now, lol. Anyway, onto the books I found this week! **all linked to Goodreads**

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley
Orphan’s Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian
Iluminati by P.J. Webb
Love in a Time of Monsters by Teresa Yea
Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman

I am really excited about all of these, especially Things I Can’t Explain and Magonia. One of the bloggers that I follow made a post about Things I Can’t Explain and basically…do you all remember Clarissa Explains It All? It’s a re-imagining of that! It follows her in her twenties. I am totally excited about it and it’s supposed to be released in September of this year!

DEAN YES SUPERNATURAL

I am excited about the other books too, because they all sound like they will be really great reads and all the covers of the books are so pretty! It’s hard not to want to buy and read them all! Hah. I am a sucker for a good book cover!

Below are some of the Kindle e-book I got for free this week. I’ll only share three of them (and then one of a book that I really love and is free), because I added quite a few.

Perception by Lee Strauss
The Annihilation of Foreverland by Tony Bertauski
Evensong by Krista Walsh
The Mind Readers by Lori Brighton

I took a break from looking at free Kindle books for awhile and last week I started to do it again. YIKES! lol. BUT FREE! Anyway, these are some of the books that I found this week that were free and as of right now, they are still free! I haven’t read any of these yet (except one), but I’m sure I will eventually. I have read The Mind Readers and I thought I would share this book with you all, because I LOVED THIS SERIES SO MUCH! I read it a few years ago and it is definitely one of my favorite series and since the first book is free, you should totally check it out! The second and third book in the series is $2.99 and the fourth book is $0.99! Super cheap and in my opinion, it was such a good series. 🙂

HEY! 🙂

I know I haven’t been updating as much this week as I usually do, but I guess I’m in this weird place right now when it comes to books and reading. I can’t believe I even said that! If you read my last post, then it kind of explains it. I hit 100 followers this week though and that is awesome! I’ve been actively only using this blog again since January of this year and I already hit 100 followers. I actually only had two followers (my bestie and my younger sister) when I started back on this blog. So a 98 follower increase in just 2.5-3 months is pretty amazing! THANK YOU GUYS! ❤

I don’t think I went too crazy (well as crazy as I usually do) with adding books to my TBR list this week. Here are ten of the books that I found this week:

1954785617185857161196641287525824338298
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
by Becky Albertalli
The First Third by Will Kostakis
Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil
Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

1932143216101054167188161793837018667800
The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider
SYLO by D.J. MacHale
Control by Lydia Kang
The Nethergrim by Matthew Jobin
Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan

I decided to share pretty much all the books I found this week, because it was hard to choose and I love the covers of all of these! I exported my entire TBR list on Goodreads to Excel and printed the book titles off and put them into a container, so I can have it as my “book jar”. I also printed off blank slips, so I can hand write any new adds that didn’t get printed off. I think once I finish all (or at least some) of my Netgalley books, I am going to start drawing books to read next. I hope that it helps me to get to my older adds and also help me decide what to read next.

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

Just in case you missed them, here are a few of the last posts that I did.

I am going to try to finish reading Dorothy Must Die this weekend and then start on some of the Netgalley books that I have. It’ll be the last book I read for March. I am currently listening to Beautiful Darkness, but should have it finished by today. It’s almost time for my monthly recap post, so that should be fun. I recently added Throne of Glass to my TBR list and it was chosen for the April read for the book club (Bloggers’ Book Club) I am in. I am excited about that! I should be receiving the book in the mail today!

It feels weird ending this post without a random picture, so here is yet ANOTHER picture of my kitten ColbyJack and my pup Dax. I swear I mostly take pictures of my furbabies.
