I’m about halfway through Leigh Bardugo’s ‘Six of Crows’ (midway through Section 3: Heartbreak). This part goes heavily into the backstory of the Dregs’ members, how they came into the … Continue reading March 3, 2019: Six of Crows Reading Blog #2
March has definitely began somewhat dramatic, yet reading is always my escape, my relaxation from the craziness. For this month, I have a blend of stories I borrowed from the … Continue reading March 2, 2019: My March TBR List
I picked up three books over the weekend; Two from the library, and one Barnes and Noble purchase. I enjoy picking up selections from my local library, and I try … Continue reading February 12, 2019: Library Book Haul (and Barnes and Noble purchase)!
Here are the stories I plan on reading for the month of February:
- The Oyster Thief by Sonia Faruqi – I intended to read The Oyster Thief this month, yet I needed to wait for my local library to carry the selection. Now that I received word that it’s present, I can finally go through it and see what it’s all about!
- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo – This is the third novel in the Grisha series. Alina’s journey against the Darkling comes to a conclusion.
- Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay – This novel is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland. I received this ARC from NetGalley.
Now that 2019 is underway, I want to share my TBR list for the remainder of January. While I know that half of the month is now gone, I would still love to share what I want to take on after I finish ‘Shadow and Bone’. Since it appears that we’re going to be snowed in this weekend, I’ll have plenty of time to enjoy my books!
I only have two books listed in my TBR pile for this month:
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
This is book #2 in the Grisha trilogy. Since these books are going to be adapted into a series on Netflix, I wanted to read the books to have an idea of what the characters were all about. From what I understand, only the first book of the trilogy is going to be adapted, but I still want to read all three books anyway.
The Oyster Thief by Sonia Faruqi
‘The Oyster Thief’ is an underwater tale that centers around a valuable ocean ecosystem. I placed a request for this book at my local library earlier this month, as they didn’t have the novel available. I’m looking forward to receiving the notification that the Faruqi’s book is finally in.
Novel received from Book of the Month Length: 453pp. Publisher: Flatiron Books Synopsis: Could ten days at a health resort really change you forever? In Liane Moriarty’s latest page-turner, nine … Continue reading December 27, 2018: My Review on ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ by Liane Moriarty
It’s been a quiet but eventful Saturday. Earlier today was Andy’s brother’s birthday celebration at Chimney Rock. It was a good gathering, and some close family friends were there, in addition to immediate family. Andy’s nephew certainly made his presence known, in a good way!
After the gathering we went to the Hunterdon County Library to take out some curriculum related books for my theme. I found one book, then was about to do a catalog search online when the power went out. Turns out that the library was running on generator power all day, then it gave out. I can still take out the book I had, so I did just that.
Andy and I then went to the North Branch location for books. Their computers were down, but we could still check out books manually. I had to search for what I needed by combing through the stacks, but thankfully that didn’t take long. This is one of moments where the old fashioned method of paper card catalogs would serve a great purpose! It all worked out in the end though. I kinda love searching through titles in stacks. It’s the book lover in me!
