Two Engaging Reads, and Baby Goats! / June Reading Blog #1

The first weekend of June brought some unexpected stress, some cuteness, and some welcomed reading! The stressful part was due to wedding planning. I’m getting married in August, and communicating with family members (especially ones in the wedding party) can be a challenge. I picked up one of the items I needed for the bigContinue reading “Two Engaging Reads, and Baby Goats! / June Reading Blog #1”

‘The Gilded Wolves’ by Roshani Chokshi/A Review

I read ‘The Gilded Wolves’ as part of May’s Asian Readathon. After completing this book, I sat with it for quite a bit. There was so much thought-provoking content with regards to the world building and cultural context in 19th century Europe, so I want to make sure my words came through clearly. ‘The GildedContinue reading “‘The Gilded Wolves’ by Roshani Chokshi/A Review”

June 2019 TBR list

For the month of June, I’m going to continue reading Asian themed novels. I received two new books as I was taking on the Asian , and just never got to them in time! My reading pace is just THAT slow, lol! These are the books I’m planning on reading during June. I may addContinue reading “June 2019 TBR list”

My Book of the Month selection for May arrived today! I’m not sponsored by Book of the Month, but I love receiving their boxes each month. They always have captivating titles, and their service covers many book genres. This month I chose The Buried: An Archeology of the Egyptian Revolution, by Peter Hessler. It isContinue reading “May 2019 Book of the Month Unboxing”

TBR Book Tag

I discovered this book tag through ‘Feed the Crime‘s blog. How do you keep track of your TBR list? I mainly keep track of my TBR list through keeping a mental checklist of what I would currently love to read. I also have most of them listed on Goodreads, but I don’t focus on thatContinue reading “TBR Book Tag”

Asian Readathon Blog #1

At the moment I’m reading ‘Girls of Paper and Fire’ by Natasha Ngan. I’m a little over 50 pages into the story. I really appreciated the trigger warning of violence and sexual assault before the novel begins, and it’s pretty accurate. Despite reading some intense content within the first couple chapters, I’m still enjoying theContinue reading “Asian Readathon Blog #1”

Crooked Kingdom Reading Blog #2

I’m about a quarter of the way through ‘Crooked Kingdom’ by Leigh Bardugo. I most likely won’t get through with the story until another few days, but I’m loving the story. One thing I enjoy reading about is the addition of ordinary (non-combative) characters. It adds a nice blend to the outlaw way of lifeContinue reading “Crooked Kingdom Reading Blog #2”

Books on Feminism that I Enjoy

While watching Steve Donoghue’s channel on BookTube, I learned that Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ is being re-released, along with a new cover. I loved reading ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ in college. It was for a Women’s Studies course (I minored in Women’s Studies at Seton Hall…a long time ago). I didn’t read the bookContinue reading “Books on Feminism that I Enjoy”

Crooked Kingdom: Reading Blog #1

I finally began reading Crooked Kingdom! I’m at Chapter Five, where the Dregs are formulating a plan to rescue one of their own valuable members. The story begins with Kaz Brekker and his crew are at a severe disadvantage, trying to navigate around their community when the entire area is at odds with them. LikeContinue reading “Crooked Kingdom: Reading Blog #1”

Asian Readathon TBR

This month is a very, very lackluster reading period…I’m in progress of reading one book at the moment. That story is Crooked Kingdom, by Leigh Bardugo. I wanted to read this story at the beginning of April, but it never came to pass. Better late than never, I guess! Now that May is approaching, IContinue reading “Asian Readathon TBR”
