I will admit, nothing too much going on in my personal life right now! We got out tree yesterday, and we decorated briefly as well. We have an event to go to today, and it should be fun! So, it’s going to be a busy day!

It’s December 1st! My birthday is on the 10th, and I am so excited! Not for getting older, but just because I get to have a fun dinner with my family (hopefully). But it also means it is holiday season! I’m a generally really cheerful person, and my mother and I both adore decorating, so we love decorating in the winter. It is a lot of fun. Especially when we get our tree.

On the other hand my Crohn’s Disease is in a minor flare up and I’ve been fighting that the past few days, and it stinks because I am so uncomfortable. At least I have today to rest up before I go back to work.  

Life has been good otherwise!

In personal news, I am so excited for the holiday season! It is one of my favorite times of years. Work is still going well, but other than that I don’t have too much to add! Life has been pretty quiet this week all in all.

Little side note, from now on I am putting these under read mores as they are quite long posts.

I’ve had a literal wickedly crazy week. I was so busy and I can’t believe that the weekend is almost over. Unbelievable! That’s okay, because today is cold and it means time to get some extra rest.

I was at YALLFEST yesterday! And that was a blast! I met six authors, got signings from five of them, and so much loot. And swag. My kitchen table is ABSOLUTELY swimming in it right now. My mom went with me, and she won the Fierce Reads Giveaway. She got EIGHT new books. But let me pick them. She’s the best! It was ridiculously fun and I want to do it again next year. And be better prepared. That would be nice. I’ll probably be posting about it through the next few weeks when I manage to sort everything out.

Not a huge week in blogging, but I did get three posts up. Hurrah!


When Printers Go to Die (or at least try) — Library Shenanigans

Date: November 8th 2019
Gideon the Ninth
Date: November 6th 2019
The Babysitter’s Coven
Date: November 4th 2019

I can’t post my YALLFEST yet since it isn’t sorted.

I ordered one book, Like New off Amazon Marketplace, and it came to me torn, written on and yellowed. I am not amused at all. I’ve got to return it.

I did get Gemina off e-bay (it’s perfect!) and here is the other bought haul.

I also had a decent library haul as well.

I’ve still got two ARCS to read. And I am planning on getting to them this week. (at some point.)

Mom and I are still working on pouches for family members. Then I plan to make a booksleeve or two for me. Not much going on other than that. But I do still have to write my monthly wrap up, another thing hopefully out today or tomorrow!

I hope Sunday treats you well! I’ve got a busy day ahead of me, and I am actually looking forward to it!

I had a really quiet week, both in terms on the blog and my personal life. I was busy reading books and getting some things together. So hence the lack of posts. I also wasn’t feeling the Top Ten Tuesday again. This week was a struggle in blog posts.

However, yesterday I was so busy because I went to a Scottish Highland Games and Gathering. It was so amazing — I spent some time figuring out what clan I belonged to. I found that on my dads side I belong to both the Donald (or MacDonald) Clan and the Davidson. I may or may not have bought a tartan sash and a couple of pins.

Anyways, I know this week is going to be another crazy one! I’m going to the Charleston YALL fest on Saturday, so if you’re going to be there, let me know! It’s my first one and I am super excited.

Nothing. At all. I’m so sorry. I’d feel guilty, but I got a lot of non-blogging things done.

I had no bought books arrive this week (hah!) but I did get two library books and a few arcs!

The Screaming Staircase is going to be a reread (love that series so much!) And I finally have Pumpkinheads and I am so excited to start it!

As far as my ARC haul, I was approved for both Ruthless Gods and Only Mostly Devastated.

My mom and I are making little pouches for everyone for Christmas, so I’m going to be wrapped up in that for some time. It’s going to be a lot of work, and then after that I’m going to go back to making book sleeves…and anything else I can think of!

I hope you all had an excellent weekend! I know I have! And I am so excited for next weekend…!

Nothing too much in my personal life this week! Other than I’ve got a minor flare up of my Crohn’s Disease. My whole body is aching and painful. Pretty typical honestly. I’ve also probably eaten my weight in candy. I’m stress eating again, because it’ll be 6-8 weeks before I get any decision on my grad school application.

Other than that I’m going to look at bookshelves tomorrow and hope that I find ones I like.

I was also approved for multiple arcs! HOLY CRAP. It was so exciting!

I had a pretty good week in blogging. I was uninspired for the Top Ten Tuesday and so I skipped this week. On the other hand I posted quite a few book reviews!

WAYWARD SON OCTOBER 26, 2019
THE NIGHT COUNTRY OCTOBER 24, 2019
THE BEAUTIFUL OCTOBER 23, 2019

I had an okay physical library book haul this week. Mostly nonfiction this week, and a surprise book, because I wasn’t expecting it to come in! (Babysitter’s Coven, it had just been added to the system!)

And I had two very exciting purchases this week…I finally own them both!

I’ve got absolutely no DIY projects in progress right now. I plan on taking some photos/working on my site more tomorrow, but that is about it!

I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday and an awesome week! Let me know about your bookish acquires in the comments!

Not too much going on personal wise: I did get my old medication for next week, but I still have to write an appeal.

My application for grad school is in! I’m very nervous but also very excited about it!

I went to a cookout/halloween party Friday night and it was a lot of fun. I got to dress up as Aphrodite and carry around a book of Homeric Hymns with me. Pretty cool night all in all.

I didn’t have a great week in blogging, I got sidetracked and forgot to post as much as I wanted to! So for this week we have:

Book Reviews:

Illuminae
Resurrection Girls
The Wicked Deep
The Guinevere Deception (E-arc)

Top Ten Tuesday – Extraordinary Book Titles

My book haul teeters on ridiculous this week. I got four books for $4 at a book fair. They were Speak, Avalon High, East, Snow in Summer.

I went to BAM and found a bargain bin of books. And well. I had some motherly encouragement…the end.

Then I bought The Beautiful. So. Big book week!

And now my library haul…in which I have zero regrets about.

I got the chance to review an arc, so I’m working on a review for that plus some other books. It’s a bit slow going because I’m actually taking notes…but hopefully I’ll keep up. I’m posting some older reviews (like a year old) sporadically now.

What are your plans for this week? I don’t have any! Which is kind of nice. I just need a new bookshelf…because my books no longer fit on the one I have.

Happy Sunday all! I hope your weeks were splendid (or at least bearable!). Mine was pretty good, nothing much happened other than life as usual. This is a good thing, as I have a crazy life sometimes. I’m going to try going to a book sale today, so wish me luck!

I didn’t have a huge week in blogging, but I did get some new reviews up! Mostly book reviews, but I did Top Ten Tuesday as well! Also I got the site up! So hurrah!

In a rather disappointing book week for me, the only book I checked out was Darkdawn.

I didn’t buy anything this week for once!

I’m still doing some tweaks on the site, so let me know if you see anything really odd! I’m also working on some more reviews to post as well as bookstagram stuff. I’m on bookstagram everyday, so feel free to drop by!

Last things…I got my new Carry On dust jacket and I am so thrilled. I love it to death!

In which the saga of my medication continues…anyways, apparently I am getting it no time soon. On the other hand, my insurance is switching to a new pharmacy this coming year (it’s one I used before on my old insurance) so that’s good news! Otherwise, nothing too interesting going on in my personal life.

I had a really bad week in blogging…I just was so tired and fed up with the insane medical situation, I didn’t get nearly as much done as I wanted to. Boo.

    I did have a few e-books I checked out this week:

    • Our Dark Duet
    • Frostblood
    • If We Were Villains
    • Carmilla
    • Now I Rise

    As for library books, I got a few this week…

    I’ve got The Siren on audiobook to listen to as well.

    Quite a few of the books I ordered came in this week as well, so very exciting!

    I can finally complete the rest of my Raven Cycle series! Hurrah! And my Folk & Air series as well!

    Trying to get my site up and working is going to kill me. I wanted it done Friday, but then I slept all of Friday and that didn’t happen, so I’m going to try for today.

    Side note: the site is now up and running!

    I hope you all have a great Sunday and an awesome week! Let me know if you’ve read/want to read any of the books in this post in the comments!
