Hour 24 – and we are done

... and this is it, another Dewey's readathon is in the books, literally. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did. I had a really productive 24 hours of reading and ended up with a personal best in page numbers. I'll be writing up, as usual, my more formal wrap-up some other… Continue reading Hour 24 – and we are done

Hour 1 – let’s begin

Good morning readathoners, We are in the first hour of our 24 hr readathon and I'm still a bit sluggish. I decided to start today with an audiobook (a first for me!). I've been wanting to read George during banned book week but didn't get around to it. It has only been 20 minutes but… Continue reading Hour 1 – let’s begin

And thus concludes my December AND this decade

Hi lovelies, Oh gosh, this is so very late!!!! Nevertheless, I had a really great December. I enjoy the holiday season immensely and was able to devote quite some time to reading. My Goodreads reading group did an end-of-decade cramathon and that really spurred me on to finish all (but one) reading goal for 2019.… Continue reading And thus concludes my December AND this decade

ARC Review – Husband Material by Emily Belden

Chick Lit, Romance | 304 pages | 12.30.2019 | Graydon House 3 STARS Another book with great potential that just sort of falls flat. The premise is really cute - I like a good geeky plot - but the characters are overwhelmingly lacking in charm and the romance just seems completely off. We meet Charlotte,… Continue reading ARC Review – Husband Material by Emily Belden

And thus concludes my November

Hi lovelies, I guess it's time for my monthly wrap-up. November was a decent month in light of my recent reading slump. I had two ARCs of which I only read one .... whomp, whomp, whoomp. I particularly hate being late on ARC reviews. Genre-wise I was all over the place ranging from thriller to… Continue reading And thus concludes my November

ARC Review – The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters

Thriller, Suspense | 583 pages | 12.10.2019 | Crooked Lane Books 2 STARS The good: The Red Lady was amazing. I loved how creepy, evil, and unpredictable she was. I loved the actual Dead Girls Club and their obsession with serial killers, the paranormal, and the weird. I enjoyed the group dynamic that happens amongst… Continue reading ARC Review – The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters

ARC Review – Ten Things My Cat Hates About You by Lottie Lucas

Chick Lit, Romance| 362 pages | 11.20.2019 | One More Chapter 2.5 STARS This is a fun and super quick read. Sadly, it's not very memorable. The premise of "my cat picking my suitors" is enticing and makes for a quirky setting. Let's start off with things I liked about this book. The cat, obvi.… Continue reading ARC Review – Ten Things My Cat Hates About You by Lottie Lucas

My very scary readathon tally …

As you guys know, I love scary things AND readathons making the fall one of my favorite reading seasons. I participated in four readathons; 3 of them over many, many weeks: RIP XIV, Something Wicked Fall, and Fright Fall (here); and one over 24 hours: Dewey's readathon. For all of them, I had the original… Continue reading My very scary readathon tally …

And thus concludes my June through October

Hi there, I've been quite inactive with my monthly summary posts and instead of catching up, I decided to just have one "massive" review. Well, it's not going to be truly massive since I actually read less than I usually do. I had quite a lot of personal things going on May through August but… Continue reading And thus concludes my June through October

Dewey’s Readathon is upon us, … yet again!

Hi book lovers of the best kind, I am, again, participating in Dewey's readathon this very weekend aka tomorrow, October 26th. We all know, I super duper love this readathon, but this particular one is stressing me out a bit since I AM SO NOT PREPARED. I just returned yesterday from a weeklong conference and… Continue reading Dewey’s Readathon is upon us, … yet again!
