A Look Back at 2014!
7 January, 2015 / 0 Comments

I know this is a bit late, but I’ve been sick.  🙁  I already had this post started, so I decided to post it anyway (even though it’s late)! In 2014, I read 65 books.  Below is my year-end wrap up.  Enjoy! My Favourite Books:             Most viewed reviews:              We discussed lots: How Fast of a Reader are You? Readers Turning Writers Book Trades I’m a Quitter! Reviews Without Ratings I Wish I Could Change My Blog’s Name, but I’m too Scared Moving Away from YA? My Edgar Allan Poe […]


My Nails This Week – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

My Nails This Week – MERRY CHRISTMAS!
25 December, 2014 / 1 Comment

First of all, Merry Christmas to you!  Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday.  🙂  Now onto this feature… This is a new feature I have decided to try out.  I love trying different things with my nails and, while it doesn’t have to do with books, I still thought it would be fun to share my creations with you!  Because why should I have to limit myself to books, right??  This will be a sporadic feature, as I don’t do designs on my nails every week (even though I usually do paint my nails every week). I have two […]

I’m a Quitter!

I’m a Quitter!
7 April, 2014 / 9 Comments

I’m a Quitter! No, not a quitter of blogging.  I know I haven’t been blogging much and have really been slacking off in the review department.  But, I have a legitimate reason, I swear!  Last week (April 1, to be exact), I decided to quit smoking.  It’s something I’ve been trying to do for years and I decided to try yet again.  I really struggle with it, like most people, so sometimes I fail to do certain things that are normally routine or that I normally love to do.  Such as reading. I haven’t been reading very much at all […]


I Need Split Second!

I Need Split Second!
19 February, 2014 / 3 Comments

I’m so angry right now, well very frustrated anyway.  I just got back from my holiday in Mexico and I had planned to immediately go out and buy Split Second by Kasie West.  But I thought I would check my local stores to make sure they had it in stock and… THEY HAVE ZERO.  All of the stores in my city.  None of them have any copies of Split Second.  What?!  I’m so disappointed.  So, now I have to order it online and who knows how long it’ll take to get here!  I’m so crushed about this, you guys.  I […]


…But I was in Mexico!

…But I was in Mexico!
18 February, 2014 / 6 Comments

Hola!  I just wanted to apologize for the lack of blogging last week.  Seriously.  I know I neglected my blog for pretty much the entire week…but I was in Mexico!  I had planned to schedule reviews and such so that my blog would not have looked so sparse.  But, unfortunately, time got away from me and I didn’t get to it.  And then I was on holidays and even though I had my computer with me, I just didn’t have any urge to type up any blog posts.  I mean c’mon, I was on holidays!  You guys get it, right?! […]


Shout-out to Recaptains

Shout-out to Recaptains
14 January, 2014 / 0 Comments

I just wanted to let all you book lovers know about this awesome blog I just found!  Recaptains is a blog that recaps books from series.  They provide a quick summary, a thorough point-by-point breakdown of key plot points, and how the book ended.  So, if you can’t remember what happened in a previous book in a series and are about to read the next one, you can head over to Recaptains to remind yourself!  I love this idea, because I, for one, have a bad memory and I find that if I go too long between books in a […]

Reaction Buttons
9 January, 2014 / 0 Comments

I just wanted to bring your attention to something new within each of my posts.  Since I updated the look of my blog, I also added these reaction buttons that appear at the bottom of the post, just before the comment section. So, you can see that there are the options “Like”, “Dislike”, “Love this book!”, “Hate this book”, and “I need this book!” I want you guys to use these when you read my posts!  All you have to do is click the box next to the one you want to choose and it is completely anonymous.  I just […]

2013 End of Year Book Survey
18 December, 2013 / 1 Comment

This survey was created by Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner (as was the image above; I borrowed it).  She invited others to join in and fill out the survey!  So, here’s mine: Best in Books 2013   Best Book You Read In 2013? (If you have to cheat — you can break it down by genre if you want or 2013 release vs. backlist)  Okay, I have to cheat a little bit.  I did manage to narrow it down to four!                 Pivot Point by Kasie West Alice in Zombieland & Through the […]

I’m a Winner!
1 December, 2013 / 4 Comments

That’s right, I did it!  I am so stoked that I actually did it.  I wrote a novel in a MONTH.  My very first novel ever!  I really wasn’t thinking I was going to make it.  I caught a flu bug on Nov. 28 — 3 days before NaNoWriMo was over!  Ahhh!  And I had around 13,000 words to write!  I didn’t get much written the first couple days of my sickness, so that left me with a whole heckuva lot to do on Saturday, Nov. 30!  I wrote 12,403 words in just one day!!!  Say what?!  How is that […]
