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…

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 Monday, What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was sunny and warm here, which was a nice change from all the rain. Had a little BBQ in the backyard last night, which was really fun. I had to put some of my planned reads on the back burner this week because some of my library holds became available and I received some E-ARCs from Netgalley that I want to review.
