11 Years of HEA

11 Years of HEA

Let’s talk about anything bookish-ish!   Hi, Wormies! March 24 marks our 11th anniversary! In honor of this day, I’m sharing all the posts I wrote inspired by my own HEA! And maybe some books similar to my own? Oh, yeah. 11 years. It seems like it was yesterday when Pierre and I tied the knot and I can’t believe it. Seriously. I even mentioned that to him. It hasn’t been all rainbows and butterflies, but we have made it work. Yes, we are total opposites and I even wrote about why Opposites Attract. I listed 8, but I think […]

Currently Reading 2019 Weeks 11-12: I’ve Been Neglecting My Blog and I’m Sorry

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks (since FOREVER) Hi, Wormies! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I know, I know, I’ve been sucked into a really long reading and blogging slump which is hopefully going away soon. I guess I have been battling with social media in the last few weeks and it’s really draining my mojo. So, these few weeks off has been really great for me! I’ve still been actively posting on Instagram, though so if you do want to chat with me there, I will be present as often as I can (which is at least […]

My Great-Grandmother Was My Bookish Influencer

My Great-Grandmother Was My Bookish Influencer

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Happy Monday, Wormies! I want to apologize for being MIA last week because – @adulting. However, that time offline got me thinking about who influenced me to read. There really isn’t a clear answer since I don’t really remember much of my earlier years. But I do remember my childhood and the stories and of course, the books that I read. Most of all, I remember my great-grandmother who told me stories. Let’s back up a bit and let me tell you a little bit about my childhood. I was basically raised by a whole […]

Currently Reading 2019 Weeks 3-5: Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks   Happy Sunday, Wormies! It’s been raining on and off here in Southern California and it’s pretty cold! If you know me, I absolutely freeze in any temperature below 70 degrees F, so I’ve been basically an icicle! I’ve also been slowly reading books now and I think I made a dent in my TBR pile. I’ve also promised myself not to request ARCs for now and I’ve done a great job, for the most part. I also talked about being in a slump trifecta and I am happy to report that I am […]

Books I Love But Never Wrote A Review For

Books I Love But Never Wrote A Review For

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Happy Tuesday, Wormies! Here are a few of my absolutely favorite books that I read prior to Goodreads and book reviewing, hence the no review part! These books are a few of my favorites that I have reread multiple times. As much as I love these books, I just don’t feel the need to review them at all. Maybe I will, in time, after a recent reread. But for now, all these 10 books remain unreviewed. Secret Ways by Kat Martin is […]

I Already Met My 2019 Reading Goal! January 2019 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy Friday and welcome February, Wormies! It’s been pretty meh in January because I actually got the trifecta of slumps – blogging, reading, and bookstagramming! Gasp! I know! While I have posted consistently on this blog, the posts had already been scheduled and now, I’m at the point where I won’t have posts to schedule now! Anyway, I am slowly getting out of this rut and I have a few ideas set for next month. January was also the month of achievements! In January, I already met my 2019 Reading Goal of 10 […]
