Blogmas 2017!

Blogmas

Hello! Today I’m announcing that I will be participating in Blogmas again this year! I’ve done it the past two years, both of which ended up bring successful.

This past month, I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo and as a result have accidentally ended up taking a bit of a haitus from posting here. That wasn’t my intent and I apologize for my time managing skills. I’ve also fallen behind on a buddy read with Zezee because of it as well (Sorry Zezee friend. I’ll get there, I promise!! D: )

So both as a way to kick-start myself back into post after NaNo is over and to get me on here reading all your blogs again, I’m doing this Blogmas. Day 1, December 1st, I will post my tentative posting schedule for the month, and then I will go from there.

Also, I’m fairly sure I’m going to win NaNo this year, so maybe all my seclusion is worth it. 😀 Maybe.

Wish me luck, and if you’re participating in Blogmas as well, let me know!

Happy reading!

Christmas Book Haul #4

Banner3

Hello! This is the fourth book haul I’ve had here on my blog and this one I feel is really nice. My family and friends were very kind to me this Christmas and I received some wonderful books and gift cards (which I used to buy more books) from them. 😀 So here is everything that I’ve collected throughout the month of December.

Attack on Titan vols 2-5 by Hajime Isayama – Slowly collecting these. I’ve watched through what has been produced of the anime and need more information. I NEED MORE I CAN’T WAIT. Therefore, I’m collecting the manga.

The Bitter Kingdom and The Girl of Fire and Thorns Stories by Rae Carson – At the time of posting this, I’ve already read both of these, so they’re going on my normal shelf, not my TBR shelf. It’s so exciting. :”D

Grass For His Pillow by Lian Hearn – This is the second book in a series that I purchased the first of back when I was a teenager and never actually read. Found this baby for fifty cents, so I bought it. Maybe I’ll get to it this year. @@

Replay by Ken Grimwood – This book was actually sent to me by a mysterious internet stranger. I participated in the reddit secret santa exchange and this is what I got. 😀 I’m super looking forward to it – it sounds really good.

Soulless by Gail Carriger – So you know sometimes you make amazon orders that total about thirty bucks and you can either had a five dollar item and get free shipping or pay seven dollars in shipping to ship it as is? Well, this is my five dollar item. :”D

You by Caroline Kepnes – This is a book I’ve almost bought about five times now. I always end up putting it back, but this time, I actually bought it (thank you, Mr gift card). I’m looking forward to being unsettled. 😀

14 by Peter Clines – I’m SO excited for this one. After reading The Fold and loving it, I found out that this one was supposed to be read first. Oops. But oh well, gonna read it now instead.

Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey – Another one I’m really excited about. Totally in the mood for some epic sci-fi opera. And this should hit the spot nicely. 😀

Horns by Joe Hill – Another fifty cent purchase (woot). Watched the movie and became fascinated. I wanna read the book now! So I’m gonna!


And that’s it! Let me know if you’ve read any of these and which you feel I should prioritize. Thanks! Happy reading!

Blogmas 2015: Tentative Schedule

Tomorrow is December first, which means the start of Blogmas! I decided to make a rough list of posts I will be doing for the month, partly so I can remember because sometimes I can be really dippy, partly because I needed something to post today.
