The Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag (2020)

Hello! Hope everyone’s doing well! I wasn’t tagged in this book tag, but I’ve seen it floating around and it looked really fun! If you’re on Goodreads and want to keep up with my reading, make sure to follow me on there! I’m not sure where this tag started, but if you do, let me know in the comments!

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam over on Taking on a World of Words. Every week, you dedicate a post to the three W’s: What are you currently reading? What have you just finished reading? What are you going to read next? Since I didn’t post a “It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR” I figured I’d do the Wednesday book tag!

Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2020

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. I really love this week’s theme! There are so many good books coming out this year that I’m excited to read!

The Coffee Book Tag

I’m a long-time barista and absolutely love coffee, so when I found this tag on Anna’s Book Nook, I knew I had to do it! This tag originated at Sumedha’s blog The Wordy Habitat. I just got an at-home espresso machine and I’ve been experimenting with making the perfect latte, so this post couldn’t be more timely!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

It’s Monday once more! I had a long tiring week, but I learned a lot! The New York Pitch Conference was moved online from March because of Covid-19, so I had 8-hour days of Zoom conferences Thursday-Sunday. I kind of have mixed emotions about everything right now, but I’m trying to remain positive and take everything as a lesson. I haven’t been reading as much this week…but managed to finish the book I started last week.

Walls Book Tag

Something I haven’t shared on my blog – but that most people in my real life know – is that I’m a massive One Direction fan. I’ve followed the different paths their solo careers have taken, but my heart will always be taken by Doncaster-native Louis Tomlinson. He’s humble, altruistic, a brilliant lyricist and a completed underrated singer in my opinion. I thought I would make a book tag for his debut solo album Walls. Please feel free to do this tag even if you aren’t familiar with his music because I’d love to see everyone’s answers!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I had a long, trying week last week, which unfortunately translated to a lot of time not writing or blogging. But I’m ready to get back into the groove this week!

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Happy Monday once again! My birthday was this Saturday and I had a really nice birthday weekend. At work Saturday morning, I had cake and a round of Happy Birthdays. My mom and I had lobster for dinner. Sunday, I had a handful of friends over for a backyard barebecue – social distancing edition! It was really nice to see some friends I haven’t seen in months (other than on Zoom/Facetime). There was a little miscommunication though because we ended up with FOUR cakes! I guess there’s no such thing as too much cake.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Hello again! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’ve been back at work, so I’ve had a bit less time to read, but I’m enjoying socializing with my coworkers and customers again. I can be a very introverted person and the time off has been a gift in some ways – for me to pause and get back to the things that bring me joy. I’ve been doing more writing, blogging and crafting than ever! But I still enjoy the occasional interaction. I really miss my Wednesday Writer’s Guild meetings at Barnes & Noble. Alas, Zoom meetings just don’t hit the same…

The Unpopular Opinions Book Tag.

Saw this book tag over at Emer’s A Little Haze Book Blog, who got the tag from First Line Reader’s blog.

Now, as a writer myself, I know how difficult it can be to pen a novel. And I know it will always be harder and braver to create than to criticize. Whether or not I liked a book, I always give the authors kudos for this huge undertaking. But as a reader and a Gemini, I’ve got to say I love to read the tea (gossip) on books people didn’t like and I hope you do too 😉 I mean no personal offense to any of the authors and my opinions are just that and should be taken with a grain of salt.
