The Sunday Post 8/18/19

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.

This past week I got some good reading in. I also finished season two of Veronica Mars (yay!). While I wish I had read just one more book from my Weekly TBR, I feel pretty good about what I did read. Really, it was a good week for me 😁 Continue reading “The Sunday Post 8/18/19”

Book Reviews: In It To Win It by Kelly Jamieson & I Wanna Sext You Up by Evie Claire

With this being my first time working during the Summer, I’ve been Stressed — Summer Reading is no joke friends– and when I’m stressed, I head towards romances. I picked up both the books reviewed below at the same time from Netgalley, knowing these I’d definitely be able to make time for. The thing with being a bit tense, I’m a lot pickier with my books and for some reason these ones and I just didn’t click. I probably could have finished them, they aren’t horrible and I’ll go more into details too. So, while I DNF’d them, YOU might actually enjoy them. Don’t let my ratings scare you off!  Continue reading “Book Reviews: In It To Win It by Kelly Jamieson & I Wanna Sext You Up by Evie Claire”

TBR Lows & Highs #49

It’s late, but I skipped last week and didn’t want to skip another. So, let’s get to looking at my TBR. 

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”)

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a post to share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It is hosted by Kathryn at Bookdate.

Okay, between feeling under the weather for the last half of the week and then having family in during the weekend, I totally didn’t get around to setting up blog posts. So, today’s post will be a weekly recap AND TBR. A mix of my Monday and Sunday posts, if you will. So, let’s hop to it! 

Before I start on my books, I want to mention that I’m almost done with the second season of Veronica Mars. I binged a bit of it last week and I plan on finishing it and starting season 3 this week. Continue reading “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

Reviews: The Toll by Cherie Priest & How to Hack a Heartbreak by Kristin Rockaway — I really did try to like them…

With the amount of books I want to read these days, I don’t have time to read books that I’m not enjoying. My biggest problem is that I need to feel involved with the characters — somehow connect with them. So, while I might be able to sit through a book without connecting with the characters, I usually just don’t want to — and that’s the crux of the two books I’ll be reviewing a bit more in-depth below. They aren’t horrible books, I totally could get through them if I had to or had nothing else to read, but knowing I have other things to read, I just don’t want to.
