Review | A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman

Hello, fellow readers! It has been way too long since my last review. I think I just needed a little bit of a break in September, but now I am trying to catch up on the books I have read recently. I had a Kindle Unlimited trial subscription until recently, so I read several books on there in September. I found A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman and decided to give it a try.

Tag Tuesday | Trick or Treat Tag 2

Hello, fellow readers! I am two days late on Tag Tuesday. Today’s tag is the Trick or Treat Book Tag. I did this last year during Blogoween and really liked the concept. The idea of the tag is to list some books that you have read and you decided if they were a trick (did not live up to your expectations) or a treat (met or exceeded your expectations. So let’s get started!

Book Lists | Thirteen Books I Want to Read this Fall

Hello, fellow readers! October is one of my favorite months of the year-Halloween, fall festivals, cooler weather, sweaters. I typically save my spookiest books for this time of year. Today I will be discussing thirteen books I want to read during the fall season. Most of these books are backlist books. I am trying to catch up on my TBR since I haven’t been too interested in new releases this year.

Discussion | Predicting Five Star Reads

Hello, fellow readers! I am going to be very honest and tell you September has been a terrible month. I have had alot going on in addition to usual work stress, so reading, even audiobooks, has taken a backseat to life this month. I am hoping things stabilize and return to normal soon, but in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to predict some five star reads on my ever-growing TBR.

Review | An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Hello, fellow readers! I recently visited Minneapolis, MN and met up with a fellow bookstagrammer, @readwithash, at Half Price Books. Ashley reads more contemporary than I typically do, and she kept raving about An American Wedding. She ended up sending me her copy to read once I was home, and I finally got around to reading it at the end of August.

Book List | Down the TBR Hole #8

Hello, fellow readers! I haven’t finished a book in almost three weeks, which means I haven’t had any reviews to write! So I thought today would be a good time to catch up on my Down the TBR Hole posts.

So basically the idea is to clean up your Goodreads TBR because we are all guilty of adding books to Goodreads and before you know it, there are 200 books on your list and you don’t even remember what a third of them are about!

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Tag Tuesday | Bookstagram Real Talk Tag

Hello, fellow readers! Today I am spilling the tea on bookstagram! Admittedly, this is not a new idea. Earlier this year, there was a tag floating around called Booktube Real Talk Tag, but I decided to make a tag with the same concept for bookstagram. I tried to find the original Booktube Real Talk Tag video, and I think this is it. Continue reading “Tag Tuesday | Bookstagram Real Talk Tag”

August Reading Wrap Up | Books I Read This Month

Hello, fellow readers! Overall, I am pretty pleased with my reading during August. I went back to work August 1 and still managed to read four books this month! I consider that a win since I was very busy with work and readjusting to having little to no free time.
