Happy New Year! To follow up on the previous post for reading goals, I am writing this to get it into my head and continue fleshing out my thoughts on it. 2017 was a huge reading year for me. I read 96 books according to Goodreads. Pretty good considering we traveled quite a bit and … Continue reading 2018 Reading Goals Are Set
2018 Reading Goals
As this year winds down I have been giving some thought to my reading goals for next year. In 2017 my very loose goal, more just a tracking system to keep count, was 100 books and at the moment I am at 89 so I'll be in the 90's by the end of December but … Continue reading 2018 Reading Goals
2017 Reading Update
Wow I have read 50 books so far this year. I'm pretty happy with that number although according to my Goodreads goal set for the year I'm 10 books behind schedule to make it to 100. Hmm So I should have made the 50 books statement back in June basically. haha The goal is a … Continue reading 2017 Reading Update
After such a rather serious post yesterday, I had a spontaneous thought when glancing at my bookmarks today. I'm very slowly gathering a nice little collection and hope to add to it. Since adulthood I have never turned down or marked inside a book (text books exempt) just because I personally like to keep books … Continue reading My Bookmarks
2016 Year of Reading
2016 has been a year of reading for me mostly because of not being employed and living overseas but also because my love of books has been rekindled. That being said I have also dove into some books the last few months that were not to my taste. I didn't know I really had … Continue reading 2016 Year of Reading
The Codex Alera Book Review
It's been ages since I did a book review, you probably think I haven't been reading eh? Not so, in fact I do have my GoodReads account pinned to the side panel if you are interested in what I'm reading at any given time (when I remember to update it hehe). 2015 had me reaching … Continue reading The Codex Alera Book Review
Karen Miller’s “The Awakened Mage”
For some reason I got the different books in the three different series mixed up and read this before Innocent Mage which is the first book. The story is interesting, certainly a different take on an isolated society and I enjoyed the magical and medieval-ness of it all. However, there are some inconsistencies in Karen … Continue reading Karen Miller’s “The Awakened Mage”
Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Slight Spoiler Alert!
I try not to "spoil" too much, hopefully the following just covers enough not to ruin it for anyone who hasn't read it yet.First I want to say I have heard that this story was rather stolen from an earlier book, I plan to read said earlier novel to see if there truly is a … Continue reading Book Review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Slight Spoiler Alert!
Fifty Shades Trilogy- E.L. James – Review- Spoiler alert!
I suppose I should review each book, then perhaps wrap it up with a summary. There is no way I can come up with to review this trilogy without giving some spoilers so please don't read this if you are picky about knowing anything. Fifty Shades of Grey: I should clarify first that I read … Continue reading Fifty Shades Trilogy- E.L. James – Review- Spoiler alert!
Book Review – Moving Past The Romance Novel Marathon
As you may know I just finished re-reading all of the romance novels that had been in storage for about 20 years and donated them to Goodwill. Though I don't see reading more steamy type romances like Harlequin again, the project did prod my interest in reading again. So, moving forward I intend to continue … Continue reading Book Review – Moving Past The Romance Novel Marathon
