Discussion | November Goals

Hello, fellow readers! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it is also the busiest time of the year! We all get so busy, too busy in fact, from November 1 to January 2 every year. While I do enjoy the holiday season, I also somewhat dread the never-ending list of social obligations that comes with it.

I am very much the type of person who wants their time to be “their time.” When I am not working, I want to be free to do exactly what I want. I don’t think anyone disagrees with that, but my point is, I do not have the type of personality that enjoys constant social obligations.

With that said, I know I have to set goals for myself the next two months, or else I will start to feel like my life is spinning out of control! Today I am sharing some of my personal goals for November.

October Reading Wrap Up | Books I Read This Month

Hello, fellow readers! October was a weird reading month. Yes, I read more books than I have in the past few months, but the quality of those books was lacking and I did not get to some of the books I wanted to read during the spooky season. I participated in Nightmareathon and read two books, meeting every challenge except for reading a host recommended thriller.

Book Lists | Books I Am Too Intimidated By To Read

Hello, fellow readers! It seems pretty common in the bookish community to be intimidated by “big books,” but I can’t help but wonder if I am missing out on some hidden gems because I avoid these books. I tend to put off reading books with 400+ pages, mostly because I think of the time spent on that one book and feel like I’m missing out on other books! I also worry I will get bored with the storyline and not finish the book any way, so I just never start reading it! Today I am going to discuss the top ten books from my TBR that I am too intimidated to read. Most of the books on this list have very mixed reviews, partly due to their size, which makes me hesitant to devote time to these books.

Review | This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher

Hello, fellow readers! I have been trying to put my Scribd subscription to better use lately and picked a YA mystery/thriller to listen to during my commute. I have been wanting to read This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher for awhile now, and fall seemed like the perfect time for this book.

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.
