IMG_8624

Hello, reader(s)! Welcome to my last post for 2019! It’s wild that 2019 has gone by extremely quickly. No? I can’t even remember the first 10 months, haha.

Beyond 2019 moving quickly, December absolutely flew by! Though December always flies by every year. This month I actually read more than I thought I did! Which is honestly a great thing. I’ve got to stay sane somehow ya know? Haha.

5 Sci-Fi Novels I *Actually* Enjoyed (& Recommend) |[Part 1/?]

Hello friends! Today I have for you a post where I ramble a bit on 5 Science Fiction novels.

I have a difficult relationship with the Science Fiction genre. There are a few books that I’m drawn towards, but, for the most part, I stay away from Sci-Fi novels. So when I read Science Fiction stories, I make sure that I’m going to enjoy it. There are many Sci-Fi books that I’ve come across, and most of them I’ve passed on. I’m a very picky Sci-Fi reader.

So here are 5 Sci-Fi novels that I actually enjoyed

These aren’t in any particular order, if you were curious. Continue reading

December 2017 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello, and Happy New Year! I hope your celebrations went well, and that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

Onto the December 2018 Wrap-Up! — I didn’t have a TBR for this month, because I knew that with Chirstmas this last month, things and life in general would be incredibly hectic. Yet I managed to read 10 books! Considering it was the busy hustle-and-bustle of the Holidays and Celebrations were to be had, I did pretty well with my readings!

I bought a LOT of books in December. I only received one, which I’m not at all complaining about. I’ve read the book, and I honestly, genuinely enjoyed it. I know I’m going to re-read it this 2018 (hopefully).

August 2017 Wrap Up

unnamed-20Hello everyone! Today’s post is that of my August 2017 wrap-up. How has your August been? — It’s incredibly hard for me to believe that August has already come and pass. That tomorrow is September.

It’s always hard for me to finish my monthly TBR lists. I usually have at least 6 or 7 books planned out that I want to read. With having only 2 or 3 books on my monthly TBR now, I’ve found that it is much more manageable for me to accomplish the list I’ve made.

My TBR of this month had 3 books on it. The TBR books were: Undead and Unwed (Undead, #1) by MaryJanice Davidson. Then there was Switched (Trylle Trilogy, #1) by Amanda Hocking, and finally, You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner. I managed to read all of this months’ TBR! This is the first (or second, I can’t really remember) time I’ve managed to read what was on my monthly TBR! Continue reading
