Catching Up: The crazy chaos that is moving

Catching Up: The crazy chaos that is moving

May 25, 2016 Challenges, Updates 3

Catching Up on Life It seems like any time things have really slowed down in my blogging and reading life it’s because my life is just insanity. Plenty of good things  have happened since the last time we caught up, but family drama and extreme amounts of travel have left me drained. And even though this next month or so is probably going to be extremely busy due to more travel and packing up and moving half way across the country, I’m determined to let you all know what’s been going on: (Sorry in advance for the novel below) – One of my… Read more »

Catching Up: Yep, It’s March

Catching Up: Yep, It’s March

March 20, 2016 Challenges, Updates 2

Okay so I KNOW that I was pretty much patting myself on the back for doing such an AMAZING *cough*decently/sorta consistent*cough* job with my monthly updates in 2015. Well, 2016 has proved to be a completely different animal, and the struggle has been real. So I’ve come up with a new format to keeping you all in the loop of my going-on’s and I’m calling it “Catching Up” because I’ll be catching up with all you guys and catching up on my challenges, and catching up on anything and everything blogging and reading related. Catching Up on Life This year… Read more »

2016 Challenges

2016 Challenges

January 6, 2016 Challenges 4

I really wanted to reduce the number of challenges this year to 3, because I did 5 reading challenges plus some extra blogging ones last year and it just proved to be too much. But then I saw a 4th challenge I just COULDN’T refuse… Tamora Pierce (but of course!) and all of these challenges are books I would read anyways so I’m thinking it will okay. Read Tamora Pierce Challenge Host: Nori @ ReadWriteLove28 The Goal: Read as many of Tamora Pierce’s books as you want! MY GOAL: I kind of jumped the gun in December and reread The Protector of the… Read more »

Spring Bloggiesta To Do List

Spring Bloggiesta To Do List

March 22, 2015 Challenges 9

So I’ve been kind of dropping the ball with the Book Blogger Organization Challenge, and I’m hoping that I can use this Spring’s Bloggiesta as some kind of motivation. That said, I’m starting a new job tomorrow, and I’m not entirely sure how this new job is going to affect my blogging schedule. Soo I’m going to keep my to do list limited to a management amount. Update sidebar profile and image Add Litbreaker ad to sidebar Update Goodreads Shelves: Add ARCs to TBR, Update Physical TBR shelf, TBR Cull Thank you letters for physical ARCs I’ve read and reviewed… Read more »

2014 Challenges Update

2014 Challenges Update

January 1, 2015 Challenges 1

Before I started blogging, one of the things that I really hoped I would be able to do more of in the blogging community was learn about and participate in more book events, challenges, clubs, etc. So in order to keep you all informed about my progress thus far, I have decided to make quarterly update posts! However, I was in a slump when the third quarter update should have been posted so this last update will cover the last half of the year (second quarter &  first quarter posts). 2014 has come and gone and I’m very proud of how much… Read more »

Blog Ahead

Blog Ahead

November 1, 2014 Challenges 1

Blog Ahead is hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup and it’s the whole month of November. Basically the idea is that you use the month of the November to create a bunch of posts scheduled for December and the new year. I’m desperately trying to regain my footing in the blogging world, and this is definitely the kind of event and motivation I need! While I think 30 posts might be a bit too ambitious for me, I am hoping to get 15 posts done during this challenge. If you a hoping to get a little bit ahead with your… Read more »

Harry Potter Re-Readalong

YAY! I’m so pumped for this! It’s been a few years since I reread a Harry Potter book, let alone the whole series!

Back To School: Day 9

Back To School: Day 9

August 26, 2014 Challenges 0

Today is the last day to participate in Parajunkee’s Back to School Book Blogger Challenge. Day 9: Share with us the story of your favorite teacher or mentor. My favorite teacher/mentor has to be my wonderfully crazy and brilliant English Professor Karen Britland. I first encountered Britland, while taking a survey course on British Lit. She came in as a guest lecturer for the day and was talking about The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser. Now I wasn’t particular fond of this work, but the moment Britland started talking, I just KNEW I had to take one of her classes. Why you must… Read more »

Back To School: Day 8

Back To School: Day 8

August 25, 2014 Challenges 0

This week I’m participating in Parajunkee’s Back to School Book Blogger Challenge. Day 8: What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned as a blogger? The biggest lesson I have learned as a blogger (and is pretty relevant in life as well) is to just be yourself. Do you. Stop worrying about all the ARCs you will never get, not having as many followers as the big bloggers, all the things you didn’t have time to do. Just focus on what you can do and make your blog a reflection of yourself. Because that will make it a bit more unique than… Read more »

Back To School: Day 7

Back To School: Day 7

August 24, 2014 Challenges 0

This week I’m participating in Parajunkee’s Back to School Book Blogger Challenge. Day 7: What are the most inspiring books you’ve read that have been assigned to you? Hmmmm I’m not sure what the prompt means by “inspiring,” but when I was thinking back to books I read for school/college and what stuck with me… the books weren’t especially inspiring in a way that me want to go out in do something because of them. They didn’t change my life but they were books that made me think (and maybe changed the way I thought about certain things) and kept me… Read more »
