2020 TBR & Resolutions!

2020 feels like an exceptionally good year to focus on bringing about positive change in my life because not only is the beginning of a new decade something that feels incredibly symbolic to me, but — *knocks on wood* — I’m speaking it into the universe now: I have a lot of hope and optimism about this new year!  In 2019, my biggest goal was to learn to take it easier on myself and practice more self-care. While I obviously still have...

COVER REVEAL: That Kind of Guy by Talia Hibbert!

I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am to share this post with you lovelies today! When Talia reached out and asked if I’d like to help her reveal the gorgeous new cover of her upcoming release, THAT KIND OF GUY, I freaked out. That’s such an understatement it’s not even funny, but—well, you’re not here to hear me gush about my feels, you’re here to SEE THE COVER!  *screams forever*...

Horror Recommendations, Pt. II: My Creepy TBR!

In case you missed it, earlier today, I posted pt. I of this recommendations idea: horror books I enjoyed, complete with “creep level” ratings! Definitely go check that post out, too! Spooky Reads I Expect to Enjoy: Everything below this point is a book I have yet to read and cannot vouch for, but they’re all stories that sounded intriguing to me for one reason or another. It’s not my full horror TBR, just the ones I feel confident I’ll...

Horror Recommendations, Pt. I (& a read-along!)

If there’s one post that has been requested of me more than anything else during my entire time hosting this blog, it has to be… A horror recommendation list! Check out pt. II of the list here! But, first… Before we jump into the recommendations, I wanted to take a moment to announce a creepy October read-along! (photo credit to Kathy!) Kathy and I have been discussing an It read-along for ages, so we decided to finally host it in...

TBR ROUNDUP: Looking Back At Old TBRs

I was thinking recently that June marked one year that I’ve been writing TBR and wrap-up posts, when an idea struck me: What if we looked back at all of my former TBR lists, and came up with some figures for how many TBR choices I’ve actually read since then? I wasn’t sure if this would be a well-received post, but I polled Twitter recently and the results were overwhelmingly in favor, so here we go!...

2017 Wrap-Up & Statistics

This is a little later than I intended for it to be, but here’s my final 2017 wrap-up! In previous years, I never thought I could’ve passed 50k pages read in a year. As a teen, I read a lot, but “a lot” back then was probably 40 books a year. In my early twenties, “a lot” was 2 books a month. To finish 208 books in one year, though? I am unspeakably proud of myself, and a little bit...
