See You in the Fall!

Dear Reader, So since March I’ve been back and forth about going on a break, due to being in the process of trying to sell/buy a house. I’ve barely been able to read and write.

April’s TBR: A Dive into Fantasyland

I’m so happy to finally be getting to another theme month. Historical Fiction was a good start but I want to get this ball rolling. Moving stresses have really dampened my reading flow (especially in March), so I need some books to get me excited for April.

Vacation Is All I Ever Wanted!

Dear Reader, If you follow me on twitter, then you’ve read about my reading frustrations over the past few weeks. After Final Girls I was on a reading high, and the crash after was hard. Every book was either really dull, frustrating, or just not grabbing me. (Sula is probably the only exception.) Vacation is… Continue reading Vacation Is All I Ever Wanted!
