January Book Haul

I have no excuse.

It’s literally not even Christmas or my birthday so I don’t even know why I have accumulated THIS many books in the month of January. I guess you could say I went a tiny bit overboard…

proof of me having no self-control

I know. I’m shook too.

Before I get into the bounty of which my kindle and shelves cry out to in joy, let me preface this with I am a super frugal and hella cheap person. Most–if not all– of these purchases were deals from bookbub.com, amazon, audible, etc. which amounted to many of them being free, as well as through my carefully thought out monthly book budget as I have placed reading and supporting authors and the arts a priority when planning my personal finances. With that being said, take a look at my walk of shamelessness. Continue reading “January Book Haul”

5 Books I Want To Read Before 2019

Hello Story-Tellers! Can you believe we only have a little over a month left until 2019 is fetch status but a real thing?

Image result for mind blown gif friendsYeah I know, I’m shocked too. But with this news in mind, I started thinking about the books I have read and haven’t read so far, and realized there are a few that have been on my TBR this entire year, that I promised myself I would read in 2018…and…haven’t yet. So in complete, Sam like fashion, I then said:

What books am I most ashamed I haven’t gotten to yet?

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon TBR

Is this impulsive?

Yes, yes it is.

Am I staying on brand?

Um–yes why yes I am.

So if you haven’t noticed by the title, I have decided albeit impulsively–to participate in this years Dewey’s 24 hour read-a-thon! If you don’t know what this read-a-thon is you can check out there website HERE for all the glorious information and to sign up. But essentially, it’s a readathon where readers all over the world dedicate 24 hours at the same time to reading and talking about what we are reading! There are mini-challenges that a slew of amazing people across different mediums and social medias will be hosting; and over all it is just one heck of a time where the TBR gets slain…or in my case attempts to get slain.

As I live close to the Louisiana border in Texas, this time around my start time is 7am this Saturday. If you are participating and don’t know when your start time for your city is, you can check out this page to find out!!

But without further ado, this is my tentative TBR for this Saturday! Will I get to them all? Probably not, but dang flapjacks I’m gonna try!  Continue reading “Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon TBR”
