Book of the Month

I'm going Shuffle, Repeat because it's one of the better contemporaries I've read in some time, it was voice-centric, and it was just plain good--and I loved reading it.

Book Haul


Posts

I shared some books I'd buy right this second if I had a loaded gift card, and books that have been on my TBR for years. I waited on a piratey sequel and a book that sounds right up my alley.

I followed some lovely accounts on bookstagram, talked about my bullet journal, and discussed the bittersweetness of finishing a series. For Women's Equality Day I made a girl squad of boss ass bitches, and for Frankenstein Day I threw a monster mash!

Two new episodes of the Ninety Second Novel: The Doorway and the Deep and Holding Up the Universe!

For the Tote is back with a bunch of A Court of Mist and Fury goodies--but it's only part one.

Last but not least, I've started a new weekly post called The Weekly Forecast, and let me tell you: I've blogged more than this month--twice as many posts as any other month this year--because of it.

Events

I went to Mary E. Pearson's signing for The Beauty of Darkness!


Currently Reading

Right now my focus is just rereading the Throne of Glass series and doing so before Empire of Storms falls into my hands.

Currently Watching

Because I've been reading so much I haven't been watching anything new--good, I guess?
