October Books (fail)

This will be a very short post about my failure. The amount of books I read in the month of October was an epic 0. ZERO! I knew I was still having trouble getting my mind back into reading but I didn’t realize I was at zilch until I checked my goodreads account.  I am... Continue Reading →

August-September Books

I've been MIA for a bit and a huge part of that goes to starting my new job and being literally exhausted ALL THE TIME. My energy is back up now and I have my body and mind accustomed to the new pattern so I'm ready to dive back in! I combined the August and... Continue Reading →

July Books

There was a lot of focus this month on completing projects around the house, plus all the job hunting, but I still made it through a decent number of books. Most of which I recommend, while there were 2 that were ugh, and a few of the books I even sat down and read in... Continue Reading →

June Books

With June being the first full month of unemployment, I had A LOT of free time to read. I made it through 13 books this month - a few great ones, a series I fell in love with, some OK ones, and one that I found awful. #1 Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology {Leah Remini}...

Well May was a sloooooow book month. I read 2 books. Seriously?! I never made it to the library in May and was pretty distracted with life to get serious about reading.

March Books

I set a goal to read 6 books in March and to not spend any money doing so. I rocked my goal and forced myself to start re-utilizing the library and their e-books. I only read 2 amazing, would recommend to anyone books but I'm also trying to branch outs and try different genres/styles so... Continue Reading →

February Books

I only read 3 new books in February, though I also re-read a 3 book series. So far I've knocked out 12 out of 60 new books for 2019. I'm on the hunt for new ones to try! I just started listening to the Bad on Paper podcast so hopefully I'll stumble on some good... Continue Reading →

January Books

I started out 2019 with a pretty impressive January reading list. I have a goal of reading 60 NEW books this year (can't count the re-reads) and I knocked out 9 in January! It helped that I made it to the library twice and I'm still forgoing most TV so I end up with more... Continue Reading →
