Epic Recs is a book recommendation challenge hosted by Amber @ Books of Amber and Judith @ Paper Riot.  Essentially, you and a partner recommend a book to each other each month.  I’ve been dying to participate but due to time constraints I never searched for a partner.  I’ve finally got time, so I put out a call to Twitter.  Lili from Lili’s Reflections, was there to answer my call and I couldn’t ask for a better partner.  She knows my tastes and the kind of books I like so more »

Bookish Bingo: Holiday Edition

Bookish Bingo: Holiday Edition

September 28, 2014 bookish bingo 34

It’s that time again! Summer has officially come to a close, which means it’s time for a new bingo card.  Fall is my favorite season, so I’ve been extremely excited for this round of bingo.  This time we have Halloween, Thanksgiving, AND Christmas all on one card.  It was hard narrowing down the choices for the squares, but I hope this gives you all a nice variety in the books you read this holiday season. Sign-ups are the same as last time: just leave a comment on this post with more »

Stacking the Shelves is hosted at Tynga’s Reviews Hi everyone!  This week absolutely FLEW by for me.  I honestly don’t even remember what happened in the beginning of the week because on Wednesday (and some of Thursday) we were at a dealership buying a new car!  I am so, so happy with this purchase, you guys don’t even know.  After six months of dealing with no wheels whatsoever, I am ready to have a car again. I’m ready to stop walking to the grocery store, to be able to visit more »
