Hey Bookworms! I am trying to be productive this weekend by getting some posts done for you to read during the week, and like I’ve said I’ve missed you all. I’m doing a Top Ten Tuesday for those of you … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I am back again I know a little shocking compared to last year, but hopefully I can keep this “streak” on a roll. Speaking of keeping on a roll here are some of the books I plan to keep my reading going. So lets get going before my eyes get too tired to write as I am working on this Thursday night after work to have it up by Friday!
January TBR: Books to Start My Year Off With
1. The Rose Society by Marie Lu
I am currently listening to this and have almost finished it. Honestly I’m feeling kinda meh about it, and I don’t know if it is because of the gap between the first book and this one, or because the first was a bit of a let down but I’m determined to finish it. If anything for that gorgeous cover!!
2. Moon Chosen by PC Cast
I’m determined to either finish this or get close to finishing it because I want an excuse to buy the second one that has a cover that is just as pretty!
3. Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray
The one bad thing about borrowing books from the library if you don’t finish the book before your turn is up you have to wait again. Hopefully I will get my turn before the month is over.
4. The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz
Another book I am determined to finish this month no matter what happens!
Well bookworms that’s all for now because I have to get ready for bed. This list may grow as my holds come from the library. What books are keeping you company this month? Let me know in the comments below and happy reading!
(Banner By: James Fenney) Hey bookworms! Since I left off my last post with the books that made last year better, I wanted to share with you some of the books that will be accompanying me into the new one. … Continue reading
Hey Bookworms! See I told you I’d have another post for you. I really do miss this community, so I’m going to try and commit my weekends more to blogging for you all. I hope you all miss me too.. … Continue reading
Hey bookworms! I promise I will learn the swing of work and blogging soon. It’s just hard to be on the computer on my weekends, when that is what I do all day for work. Good news is I plan on getting glasses soon, so that should make being on it for work and home easier.
But anywho I thought it would be fun to show one of the benefits of having a job. Which is treating myself to stuff like my addictions every once in a while. So here is what I treated myself to in September!
Saga Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Citrus Volume 5 by Saburo Uto
The Fangirl Life: A Guide to All the Feels and Learning How to Deal by Kathleen Smith
There is an interesting story with these first three… Well not funny exactly I originally ordered copies of these in March, but they were shipped to my old address and never got forwarded… I hope who ever is living there is enjoying the books, so I had a coupon and decided to get them all over again. I am sure they are worth it though.
Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot
The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz
The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough
The Boy and the Beast
If you’re curious about this movie I did do a review on this movie which I gushed for… Here
What a Girl Wants/Chasing Liberty
Laws of Attraction
So if you haven’t figured it out I have a movie addiction on top of these movies I also bought a movie binder that holds 400 DVDs… Yeah I was a little bad, but most excluding the first were $10 and under! So no regrets… For now XD
Lastly I bought this adorable and super soft Umbreon pillow pet at the Tokyo Discount store near my house. He is one of my favorite eeveelutions and I couldn’t resist buying him. Now if only they had an Espeon then I would have my favorite Pokemon Ship. May they will one day.
I’m doing good at savings, but sometimes when I’ve had a hard day at work small things such as books or movies on sale makes it a little better. Working at a call center isn’t easy as a first job, but it is teaching me skills I can carry to a job I feel passionate about. There are rough days, but there are also days where I really like my job. It is a stepping stone to what and where I want to be in life.
Have you read or watched any of these? What is your favorite pokemon? What do you indulge in when you’re feeling stressed. Let me know! I miss you all and now I am off to schedule some more posts for you all! Happy Reading and Watching!
Hey Bookworms! Miss me??? I know I’ve been MIA, but I’m still adjusting to the working world… Honestly my days off aren’t used for much more other than sleep and maybe a trip to the grocery store. I’m hoping I’ll have more energy this week though because my schedule got changed to 8-5 pm Tuesday-Saturday, but long story short I get more sleep and I don’t have to wake up at 3 am to get ready for work. I can’t tell you where I’m working, but it is a call center job and most days besides the cranky callers I love helping people.
As for other stuff although having a job is a good thing it may mean longer to save for my own place because I will have to pay for medical insurance now… Which also means adding to how long it takes for Grad School. Every day is still a bit of a struggle for me but I’m trying to take it day by day and week by week and trying to see some bright spots.
Like I’ve made a new friend who lives close to me and I love that she’s bookish! I can pile books on her bit by bit.
But anywho lets get on to the books. Since I probably won’t get to do a Friday Reads with my schedule the way it is for a few weeks. I decided to do a Weekly Reads, so I can still share with you all what I’m trying to read this week. So let’s get started!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne
This is slow reading for me because my post office held it hostage for 2 days, so I’m reading it in between resting, and I plan to read it on my lunch hour too. No spoilers please because I’m only on page 80ish.
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
This will be my audiobook listen for the bus for the first half of the week. I’m enjoying the concept so far, but very few books have left a mark on me this year with my mood, so we’ll see most books have earned a 3.5 (aka a 4 stars on Goodreads from me) I am glad I am reading it after the hype though
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
This will be my other audiobook. I do have high hopes for it since Cruel Beauty was my favorite of last year. Hey I can hope!
Well that’s all for now Bookworms! It is time for me to head to bed although I am a little nervous for tomorrow since it’s our first day without our wonderful mentors. I am just taking this week day by day and doing my best to help each person. Anywho have you read any of these books? What were your thoughts? Any tips for how to blog around working? Let me know in the comments down below. I need all the help I can get please! Happy Reading!
