Bout of Books Readathon

Bout of Books 19th Readathon

I’ve joined the Bout of Books Readathon. I was just going to post about it on Twitter, but it’s a good thing for my blog that the Hosts for the readathon is asking for a direct link rather than just my Instagram or Twitter home pages. So I’m taking this small break from my reading to post about this readathon. I’ve actually been enjoying this more than the other readathons because I’ve actually finished a book so far! I have been in a little reading slump in April because of some tremendous stress that I won’t go into detail about. But now I’m reading again and it’s feeling good.

My furbabby has been snoozing away as I’ve been reading. My reading goals have been to finish those books that I’ve started but never bothered to finish because I’m a mood reader and was in a reading slump. So I’ve now finished rereading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. Next is North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell and Who’s That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane. And there’s an entire pile of other physical books that I’ve started and never finished, plus the books on my kindle that I forgot to finish. Continue reading “Bout of Books Readathon”

TGIF & March Wrap Up

TGIF & March Wrap Up

Happy Friyay. I got some book-mail from @NovelHeartbeatCreations. These candles are so great! My favorite is the Paw Prints candle. It smells so good that I keep smelling it again and again. I’m a little afraid to light it because I don’t want it to go away. Might order a larger container when I have money to spare… or another big sale.

And so here I am, debating if I should just leave this short post or if I should also post a book review too. It’s been a while since I’ve posted a book review and I’ve got 10 books that I’ve read this year. And then I might make my Top 10 Books and Movies from last year too. Well I should probably leave it to just this post and go from there. I don’t want to stress over something that should be a fun hobby for me.

That’s a Wrap Up

I will mention a bit about the three books I’ve read. Well actually it was four but I’m counting it as a February read because I didn’t read that much of that book this month. Do you do that too? Count the books that you’ve read more the one month or count it for the month that you read say 20 pages of 100. Continue reading “TGIF & March Wrap Up”

TBR too many books

TBR Tuesday

Peanut and Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Today was a pretty lazy slow day. I did get some reading done, though it’s never enough to the amount of time I wish for. I did find time to read outside today. Reading outside has been a goal this past week and I’ve been really looking forward to this me-time. It’s been a real refreshing thing that has started to uplift my mood, along with the fact that it’s summertime, one of my favorite seasons. Peanut and I highly recommend finding some time to read outside.

So reading. What shall I read?… Well of course thanks to my habit of reading more than one book at a time, I am currently reading 3 booksContinue reading “TBR Tuesday June 28th”

Monday Mayhem

Ah Monday. Thankfully this week is looking to be just ok. Today was actually relaxing. I’ve finally been getting some reading in. Yes, this week may be ok. Not too stressful or busy. Hopefully.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“And some old witch in Bath had a book that you could never stop reading! You just had to wander around with your nose in it, trying to do everything one-handed. And —”

~ #RonWeisley.

Well I think that having a relaxing weekend helps out too. What have I been up to? Reading books. I’m acting almost done reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and I think it may end up being the third book that I finished for June! Thank goodness for that because I only finished one book in May (The Martian by Andy Weir), which explains a bit on why I haven’t done any monthly recaps or such lately. Because there hasn’t been that many new things happening. Until now, I’m actually doing some reading and loving it! Continue reading “Monday Mayhem June 27th”

Here’s another book soundtrack for you all. I’ve been rereading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and with that I’ve thought of making a little soundtrack from my music collection.

Black Dove by #ToriAmos

(🎧 “They don’t know that you’ve already lived on the other side of the Galaxy” 🎧) Such a magical song. Love Tori Amos too. 💗
