June OwlCrate Box

Howdy!

I hemmed and hawed over if I wanted to even post this as 1. it is sort of late 2. I didn’t actually open it up like I wanted. In my excitement to actually get a box I zipped through opening up and examining each thing so quickly it wasn’t until I was done I realized I should have taken it a little slower. Eh. You win some and you lose some.

Oh my…

It’s been such a long time since I’ve been on this site (apparently it’s been 7 months). How embarrassing. To be fair I work two jobs that usually results in 80-90 hours a week and I had started my first semester (with 14 oober fun credits) of online school which left me with around 45 minutes a night of sleep. There was no time to do anything including the one thing I love the most: read.

Hello blog world!

I feel silly for posting anything since I’m so far behind on reading and it’s really disappointing, but I genuinely enjoy writing here even if I don’t do it as often as I’d like.

Last month I tried REALLY hard to avoid buying too many books because I knew I wasn’t going to be able to read nearly as many as usual. However, my hands cannot be stopped when I see a book I want – they just grab and my body moves towards the checkout line. So, without further ado my small but lovely book haul:

Dark Places Review

I’m pretty sure it’s pathetic that this is the only book I’ve finished so far this month. I work full time as a store manager somewhere and I had a bright idea to get a second job at night. Plus, I will be starting school in January so trying to get it all ready and then adding in the holidays coming up, well, it’s been busy. I’m sure a lot of you are in the same boat!

Digging into the second part of my October Book Haul! I am really excited, however I then take a moment to realize there is just no way to read all the books on my TBR list as well as all the books I continue to binge-buy. So, I’ve really been trying to reel myself in on book buying. I should be reading as many as I buy. Ha. Ha. Ha. Sure. Maybe in my next life. So here is the second part of my list!

Monday.

Aye.

I mentioned in my last post that I may have gone WAY overboard last month when it comes to buying book. I actually almost went a little crazy when I would think of stopping by a thrift store. My palms would get a little sweaty and my heart would begin to race. Yes. My name is Christine. I have a book problem. Anyway – before going any further in this post be warned I am banning you from judging my eagerness to snatch up too many books within a 31 day period. Got it? Good.

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!

Happy Monday, everyone!

It has finally cooled down here (by cool down I mean it’s not 110 degrees but merely 85 on average – does that mean I can break out the sweaters? Ha). So I spent my day off, Saturday, drowning in book pages and enjoying the slightly cooler weather with my cuddle-bug of a dog.

So after telling myself I needed to get this book ordeal into gear last month I went a little crazy: I reorganized my entire book collection, made a list of the series I had or wanted so if I come across any good deals I can snatch those books up, heavily overdid myself on Goodreads, and spent a lot of time with the cellular device turned off and with my face inside a book (isn’t the inside of a book almost a delicious scent??). While doing this I decided I’ve slacked so much on reading the past few years I needed to re-read everything I owned so I could review them (I’m embarrassed to admit how many books I actually own, so this book-review thing might be something that goes on for eternity).

I only did re-reads last month. Re-reads, but good reads.

I have been a mess when it comes to following through with this blog. At the start of September I really kicked my own butt and decided to get it together…for the books!

I have a confession: I am obsessed with buying books. I have a rather large amount of thrift stores (Goodwill, Savers, etc) in my close proximity and it causes a huge problem when I get that itch to hunt down a book. The thrill of finding a book for $1-$3 has become an obsession over the past few months. So, to begin again with this blog I have decided to make this the first post about my September Book Haul.
