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

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day if you live in the United States! Hope everyone had a good week. I’ve been trucking along on my Goodreads 2020 challenge – I’m at 35 books of 75. Doing Monday updates has been a good way to keep me accountable to my reading goals. Until I started posting on my blog with weekly reading updates, I never gave much thought to planning my reading. Though I always have an insurmountable TBR, I always end up reading what appeals to me in the moment. I still struggle with that and sometimes books take precedent if they are an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) for review or a library book with a return date, but it’s kind of cool to dedicate time to a book in advance. Do you plan your reads?

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.

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

Happy Monday! Hope everyone’s doing well! I’m back at work as of last week, so it’s been a bit harder to post as much, but I’m going to try my best. Once again, I’m a mood reader, so I didn’t read what I planned on reading this week…

Top Ten Tuesday: Things I’d Have at My Bookish Party

Top Ten Tuesday is a book tag created by The Broke and the Bookish and hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader. This week’s prompt is “Things I’d Have at My Bookish Party”. I think this is such a cute theme and it really made me think…

It’s May! The sun’s (presumably) shining. Trees are in frothy flower. Everything is just a little bit sweeter. What better time to dive into a good fantasy read?
