Nothing 😲 Are you shocked, because I’m shocked. Anyhow, last night we ended up playing some card games and I’ve had no time today to start anything. 

This Week’s TBR List

Okay, I’m giving myself a TBR, but I don’t have many hopes of sticking to it this week. I’m starting a new job this week and will be moving on Saturday. Many changes this week. 

A Rogue by Any Other Name (The Rules of Scoundrels, #1)The Marked and the Broken (The Lost Sentinel, #3)Nerdgasm (Naughty Nerds)

Sunday Post 1/26/20

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blogs.

I’ll be wrapping up the last two weeks since last Sunday I was on the road and unable to make a weekly wrap up 😁 Continue reading “Sunday Post 1/26/20”

Posted in Once A Month Posts, State of the ARC

State of the ARC #1

Happy Saturday, friends! 

Last year I shared my ARCs weekly, but that was starting to feel like a bit much and made me more guilty than motivated to finish anything. I’m hoping a monthly post will be better for me. Therefore, I’ll be trying out State of the ARC, hosted by Avalinah’s Books !😁

Let’s see how this goes…

TBR Lows & Highs #68

It’s Friday!! 

I finally have internet and free time– just in time for my favorite post of the week! 

Rules:

  • Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
  • Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
  • Find 5-10 (or more, if you feel ambitious!) titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”)
    • ALTERNATIVE OPTION: Find 5+ titles that are at the BOTTOM of your TBR—books you want to read someday, just not right now!
  • Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation
  • Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending
  • List the last 5 (or more!) books you added to your TBR, with a synopsis or your brief summary of why you added it (the “highs”)

Joining in Pondathon!

Pondathon: The Quiet Pond's story-driven readathon. Image: Two swords with vines wrapped around it frame the words 'Pondathon', with three little forest sprites sitting on top. One forest sprite has a leaf on its head, the middle has twigs for horns, and the right has a mushroom on its head.

What is the Pondathon?

The Pondathon is a co-operative and story-driven readathon hosted and run by CW from The Quiet Pond. The aim of the Pondathon is to read books and collect points to protect the friends over at The Quiet Pond from the encroaching malevolent forces that threaten our friends in the forest.

Have fun participating in the Pondathon readathon by joining one of five teams, each with a unique way to collect points and signing up! You can also follow the story of the Pondathon as it unfolds, and participants can also complete ‘side quests’ during the readathon to collect extra points. The readathon takes place from January 24th 2020 to March 7th 2020. More information about the readathon can be found here.

Information About Joining the Pondathon

  1. To join the Pondathon, simply sign up anytime between January 18th 2020 to March 5th 2020.
  2. Choose a team, create your own animal character for the Pondathon and create a character card!
  3. Create a blog post, bookstagram post, booktube video, Twitter thread, or whatever medium you wish, with ‘#Pondathon’ in the title or your tweet. Share the character you have created and your character card!
  4. Link back to this post so that others can find this readathon and join in.

Share your updates on your blog/bookstagram/booktube and social media. You are more than welcome to tag @thequietpond or @artfromafriend on Twitter or Instagram in all your updates!

My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies, #2)The V Girl

I got in some listening time yesterday, so I’m 35% into My Plain Jane and I’m really liking it. I’m also 35% into The V Girl which is so difficult to read since rape is everywhere in this book.
