All Booked

This month I actually read a lot considering how little I had picked up in the past few months. Let’s take a look, shall we?

I don’t have a particularly large reading goal which is fine by me – so reading 6 books so far this year is amazing. Here’s which books they were:

Otherearth by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
4 / 5

Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake (My Review)
4.75 / 5

Even If I Fall by Abigail Johnson (My Review)
4.25 / 5

More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer (Letters to the Lost #2)
4.25 / 5

Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult (Re-Read)
4 / 5

The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule
3.75 / 5

Overall I really enjoyed almost every single one of these books. I didn’t stick to my TBR 100% (I read 3 of my 6 so I guess I did ok??) but oh well. I actually had requested several of these books on audio at the library and they finally were available in January so I put other books on hold to make room for these instead.

Hi bookish fans!

Another fun, late posting for January, but nevertheless here I am! I read 6 books in January – way more than I thought I would with classes and working full-time. While 2 were for school (and 1 of those 2 I genuinely disliked), I did read them in their entirety and as they took a long time to read giving their contents, I am still calling them a win. Let’s begin!

★★★★★ Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan Short Goodreads Review
I read this book at the VERY end of December and almost into January, so while it doesn’t count for January I LOVED this book SO much I hope more people read it. It’s a historical fiction based on a real person and events in WWII. MUST read.

I read a few great books in January, and while the nonfiction books for my classes weren’t terrible, they were informative and I love learning so I enjoyed that aspect of them. I did have a hard time posting reviews for some books since I got busy and hope that I can get better about posting individual reviews as I continue reading and writing.

  • Really been looking for people’s reviews on the Red Queen as I have gone back and forth on this. I know I’m late to the game on this book but still want to know thoughts if you have any!

Hello fellow book lovers of the blogging world!
November is upon us! I LOVE it!

I feel like a slacker for a lack of posting for almost an entire month. I was trying to power through the Sookie Stackhouse series and I really didn’t feel like each book by itself was worth a blog post, mostly because I didn’t have much to say per book. Since that’s all I really read last month I decided to just wait until the end of the month and just put them all in one post to save time!
