All Booked

Hi book lovers! Friday is here – what are your weekend plans?
I’m currently trying to finish the first book in the Mortal Instruments series. I am..almost..there.. Anyway, eventually I’ll get that review up when I’m done. In the meantime my Owl Crate box came! WOOHOO. A grown adult probably shouldn’t be this excited for something like this, but alas, I am. So sue me.

Top 5 Wednesday

Hi there! How has the week been treating everyone so far? Hopefully well as the week is now half over for most people, right?

I clearly have never participated in a Top 5 Wednesday (or a Top 10 Tuesday, for that matter) so this is a new experience for all of us. Thrilling. Anyway, the Top 5 Wednesday that most people seem to use is hosted (now) by a girl with lovely lipstick named Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes

The Night Circus

Hello fellow book readers!

How was the weekend for everyone? Today has been the first day off both of my jobs in about three weeks so needless to say I have enjoyed every second of this day (still in my pajamas). It was on my list to start reading a new book today but instead I just cleaned because I figured that I need to accept my role as an adult and get things done that are important besides being lazy and reading.

Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper is a huge hit in comparison to her vast array of other books. Whenever I attempt to hold a conversation about my love for Picoult no one ever knows who I am talking about until I say, “One of her books, My Sister’s Keeper, became a movie…with Cameron Diaz.” Aye. I shudder at the thought of having to explain that to one more person. Regardless, that usually brings them somewhat closer to my level until I then lose them as they inform me they’ve failed to read anything else by her and I’m back to square one. Read More

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!
