I thought I had scheduled this to go up! And I just realized at 5PM it did not! Oh dear…well! Grad school starts tomorrow, so that is exciting and nerve-wracking. It is all online! Not too much else to talk about today, other than I redid my bookshelves this afternoon, but I’m not quite happy with them yet. Eh. I had them rainbow, but now I have them by author, because I like the series’s together.Continue Reading
This is up so late because I was very tired today. I don’t really have much else to say — I’m just exhausted.
I got two more books from my used bookstore last week — so I’m pretty pleased.
I’m seriously lagging in my reading. But I did read “The Vine Witch”. I had to put Winterwood later of my list to finish my library books first.
Have a great week!
Definitely not too much going on right now, just Christmas related things. I honestly have nothing much to put here other than I’ve gotten obsessed with playing Assassins Creed: Odyssey. I really want to finish it!
When I will get to these, I don’t know!
The Song of Achilles is UK paperback edition! I found it in my local used bookstore, and so I was really happy about that! Six of Crows is a hardback I got there too! Couldn’t resist!
What am I reading? I’m probably going to start on the ARC “What I Like About Me” next! And Winterwood. Hopefully.
I wish you all Happy Holidays! Enjoy your time with your family & friends!
My birthday was on the 10th, and it was good! My coworkers got me a cake and another got me cupcakes. My grandmother gave me oreos and my parents baked me a brownie. I think I exploded from sugar overload this week!
But, I ran out of spoons. By about Thursday I was exhausted, but I had to go Christmas shopping on Friday. It was successful. Saturday I started feeling like I had a cold, and it still feels that way today. Yuck!
Today is going to be a day for relaxing, and I’m going to wrap presents and take bookstagram photos, queue up some posts and the like.Continue Reading
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!Continue Reading
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!Continue Reading
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.Continue Reading
Little side note, from now on I am putting these under read mores as they are quite long posts.Continue Reading
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…!
