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”

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”

My Review of ‘Is There Still Sex In the City’ by Candace Bushnell

I received an ARC of ‘Is There Still Sex in the City’ through NetGalley and Grove Atlantic in exchange for an honest review. I thought ‘Is There Still Sex in the City’ by Candace Bushnell was a quick and light read. I loved the references of living in New York while handling relationship struggles duringContinue reading “My Review of ‘Is There Still Sex In the City’ by Candace Bushnell”

March 10, 2019: The 1st Book Series I Read

The first book series I got addicted to was the ‘Sweet Valley Twins’ series. I was in 4th grade, and I loved ordering from the Scholastic Book clubs that my grade school offered. Every month during the school year, my mom allowed me to order many stories from the Scholastic forms, and I would enjoyContinue reading “March 10, 2019: The 1st Book Series I Read”

The book is only available in 2 library branchesContinue reading “March 9, 2019: End of Week Reading Blog”
