Hey Bookworms! So this is a topic I’ve wanted to talk about for a while because I think I may have a problem. So instead of putting it off any further with my normally rambling intro lets get to it. … Continue reading

Book Talk: One of the Most Major Bookworm Problems You can Have!

fbook talk

Hey Bookworms! See I am getting better at this, or I am trying to. Also it also helps when bookworm problems hit, so it gives me inspiration to write and see if anybody else has had these problems, or was unaware that this was a thing. So lets gets started and hopefully I can get this posted and it sounds okay.

Book Talk: My Major Bookworm Problem of Last Week… 

It’s okay guys! The problem is fixed now as of about an hour ago, but I didn’t even know that it could happen.  As someone who has depended on this resource since the moment that she found this resource close enough to her. It kind of let me lost a week without it… Okay no more suspense or my attempt of leaving you in suspense. (Again I am rusty and try to find my voice in writing again.)

I was a week without my library card!! Dun dun dun! Why, you ask? Did I lose it? Nope… It expired?! When did this become a thing??!?! At first I thought it was an error with the app as I closed it and opened it again. It said the same thing! So of course I googled it, because I couldn’t call the library at 3:30 in the morning when I am getting ready for work. It is a thing and you have to physically go to the library and give them your ID to prove you still live at your same address.

I wanted to cry at the thought of not being able to renew my audiobooks. It is the one thing that helps wakes me up in the morning, distracts me on my long bus rides, and pretty much the only thing that gives me time to read as well as saves me money. Well my library card and the fact that I’ve been too lay to enter my new debit card details in my nook payment section XD Well it is now fixed, and I have new things to read! So now I am happy!

My question to you bookworms is did you know this is a thing? What do you think qualifies as a major bookworm problem? As a bookworm let me know what you couldn’t live a week without. Let me know in the comments below. I hope you have an awesome week and Happy Reading!

Quick Update: Why I’ve Been on Hiatus

Hey bookworms I know I’ve been missing but if you’ve been following me on Twitter I’ve posted why, but I’ve been feeling bad that I haven’t posted why on here. Long story short we had to short sale my childhood home and it hasn’t been easy on me at all. So we have to be out of here by the 21st and we’re moving into my mom’s boyfriend’s house which is on the other side of town… Again not something I’m eager to accept, but I am trying to make it through (to quote the Degrassi theme! XD) Once I get a job, I plan to move back to my city of comfort and find an apartment of my own, hopefully with a service dog of my own to help which is something else I’m trying to look into.

On the note of  a job: I’m still on the job hunt the Bureau of Vocational Rehab process is taking much too long for my taste, but it’s due to their high in take, so I understand why. I want and need to work because not only do I need the money, but I am going stir crazy! I am still volunteering at All the Same Wild and Tame. We have 2 new kitties at my location (which I will need to figure out if I need to change my hours with me having to move 3o minutes away)

Who is turning out to be another little diva. Sweet to me when I arrive and when I leave but 5-10 minutes later she changes her mind. I’m sure she’d stay sweet if she did surprise easy though with all the noise. She is a year old and is quite sweet when she wants to be.

I’ve fallen in love with him and wish I could take him home! He is the sweetest 5 year old little boy in the world! He is content to just simply sit there, be petted, and mew greeting at you every time! I miss him when I’m not there, but I hope he finds the most loving home!

As for reading I am still in a slight slump due to being busy and my heart a little heavy with the move. I am listening to 2 audio books from the library Anne of Green Gables and Rebel Angels.

What else my mom decided to treat me to an early Birthday present which is on the 18th. She paid for me to get my hair done!

I’m so happy to have my hair short and red again. So at least that has kept my day bright as well as cleaning my room I found my favorite childhood picture and frame!

wp-1457916463436.jpg

Can you tell how much I’ve always been a Disney Freak? I literally adore this picture and want to go back to Disneyland and take another picture  and buy another frame (even if I am sad that they took away wheelchair line privileges because people who didn’t need it abused it…) I want to go back to the happiest place on earth and take the happiness and inspiration back!

Well bookworms that is all for now I have to get ready to tackle my last shelves in my closet and pack my books. I miss you all and books! Please send positive and lucky vibes my way I need them! I hope you all are doing well and I will be back the moment I’m settled! Happy Reading!

Hey bookworms! I thought I’d do a quick post before I’m drowning in the homework I plan to start at 4. I honestly have no clue how I am going to survive this semester… So between all the homework I … Continue reading

My Last READATHON of Summer: #BoutofBooks 14 TBR and Goals

BoB14-200x200

Hey bookworms! Hope your weekend went well! Sorry I haven’t been active these last few days… I have been running into issues with school and finding out all these issues has been from the internet. So hence my avoiding my computer… Figures my last semester of my undergrad that I tried so hard to make run smoothly did the opposite. On that note I was looking for something fun to cheer me up! Now what is fun for a book blogger? A Readathon of course! I had been looking for one for August and stumbled across it when I saw a TBR for it on youtube. I have done the Bout of Books before, and had lots of fun before, so why not give it another go! If you don’t know what Bout of Books is:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Now that I’ve given you the neccessary info, so you can join the fun! Let’s decide what my goals and books to read will be because this is totally last minute! *blushes slightly*

Bout of Books Goals

So goals! Something I have never been the best at keeping! Let’s face it I set goals and then get distracted from them easily… I figured though setting goals will get me back in the school set of mind because I am going to try to be better at time management my last semester! So that being said I will have a goal of 5 books AND keeping track daily of how many pages I read daily. That is not going to include the audiobooks because the ones I do listen to most of them I do not have physical copies of. I will list the number of chapters listened to though! So what will I try to read this week? I will list a few that are on my mind now:

 Tentative TBR

1. Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Thanks for the Memories

I am close to the end of this book, so if I don’t finish it tonight I want to finish it tonight. I definitely want to finish it by Monday!

2. Princess Mia by Meg Cabot

Princess Mia

I have 80ish pages left and since it is almost Midnight this will probably be the first book I finish. I can really relate to Mia in this one, so I can already guess that I will probably give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

3. Forever Princess by Meg Cabot

Forever Princess

I am almost finished reading Princess Mia, so why not add this one onto my TBR. Thank god I found Scribd. I really recommend this site to bookworms on a budget. No I am not paid to promote them. I just post about them a lot because I wish I would’ve found them sooner, and hopefully I will help another bookworm do so!

4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and The Dawn

Another library book due this week! I need to finish this by Friday, so I know this will be the one I for sure finish during this readathon!

5. Vampire Game Vol 1 by Judal

Vampire Game Vol 1

Gotta have a manga to break things up, so hopefully it will be a good reason to finish this book!

6. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse

I am falling back in love with this book again! I am traveling through this book which is great because I am going stir crazy not having been anywhere during the break. I am slow on it because I got distracted by Mia’s problems but I drift to it through out the day

7. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

A childhood read if I get too weighed down or momentarily bored with the others. Plus I’d rather go to Hogwarts than worry about my school stress!

8. Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily

This will most likely be my next audio book read after I finish Thanks for the Memories. I am really hoping to love this book although if I do not love the narrator I will switch to the copy of the e-book that I own.

9. Broken by Kelley Armstrong

Broken

This is on my monthly TBR and I really at least want to get into this book! I miss Clay and Elena!

10. Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver

Red's Untold Tale

Guess what Bookworms?! I am happy to say I got approved for an ARC on Netgalley. I also figured out how to get it to send to my kindle apps! I feel so smart to have figured that out! I really am horribly untech savvy. Which was why I was beyond nervous to request it, but I figured it out! Like my mom says to the kids at her school (she’s a secretary) “Kiss your brain” I was so proud that I bested the tech in my life! Anywho I am beyond shocked I was approved! I am huge Oncer fan, so I really want to try and get some of this done by school.

Yes my bookworm friends, I know I have my goal set at 5! I am such a mood reader lately, so to have options lately is my best option. Not including the fact is I am a book polygamist as well! So that is it for now bookworms! Are you participating in this readathon? Let me know and link me your TBR’s. If you want to see updates as I read you can follow me on Twitter @CKReads. Good luck with your reading week, and especially if you’re already back to school! Happy reading!
