Hooray! Summertime is here! This is my favorite time of year – warm weather and long days! It also means I started this blog seven years ago! Yup, it’s my blogoversary. Sure my posts are sporadic now and I abandon it for months at a time, but it’s still here! Counts for something, right? It blows […]

Is This Thing On?

Is This Thing On?

  *taps microphone*   Heeellooooo!! It’s been awhile, eh? Did ya miss me? Don’t answer that. 😀 The last time I posted on here was in January! I’ve had a lot going on – good and blah – so blogging/reviews took a seat. And honestly, I just didn’t feel like blogging. *shrugs* It was actually nice […]

My Year in Review & Top Reads of 2017

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready to welcome a new year. 2017 pretty much sucked ass and can bugger off. There were a few hard losses, including my grandpa, so I’m looking forward to a better 2018. I had anticipated a busy year and knew I wouldn’t have as much reading time, […]

My Life in Books Tag

My Life in Books Tag

It’s time for another book tag! I saw this on Delighted Reader, but it was originally posted by Rantings of a Reading Addict. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. I’m only going to use books I’ve read & liked, except when that obviously isn’t the case. Most link to my reviews Find A Book For Each […]
