Busy Fall with Maybe Slow Reading and New-To-Me Authors | November 2018 Monthly Wraps

Busy Fall with Maybe Slow Reading and New-To-Me Authors | November 2018 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   Happy new month, Wormies! You may have noticed that I haven’t been as active on the blog for a few weeks now because I had a busy work month! I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona last week, and also a few projects at work were occupying my time. This kinda resulted in less reading time at home – and this is even with the Thanksgiving holiday! Baaaah I will have a couple of weeks off in December so I am super excited to just read and read and read. I have a few […]

Why I’m Not a Fan of Bookish Subscription Boxes

Why I’m Not a Fan of Bookish Subscription Boxes

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I had this post drafted (but not finished) for a few weeks now but I read Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s post on Book Box Subscriptions so I decided to hold off and change my post a bit. I used to subscribe to a few bookish subscription boxes a few years ago. However, I really think that they aren’t worth it, to me anyway. While I would love to continue subscribing to these boxes, I just don’t think it is practical for me to do so. And here’s why.   The Books I am […]

All I Want for Christmas: Bookish Edition

All I Want for Christmas: Bookish Edition

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl formerly hosted at The Broke and the Bookish   Christmas is almost here! I can’t wait to spend a lot of moolah purchasing a lot of bookish items! Although, I have to say that Pierre wins the award of buying me bookish stuff that I didn’t know I wanted! Anyway, he does subscribe to this blog so this post is basically a *tiny* nudge to him to BUY ALL THE THINGS for me! Thanks and I love you! If you want to see the other bookish posts/wishlists that I have done, […]

Currently Reading Weeks 42-44: Stay Safe, Everyone!

Currently Reading Weeks 42-44: Stay Safe, Everyone!

Bookish updates in the last 3 weeks   Happy Sunday, everyone! As you know, I live in SoCal and there is a scary wildfire going on close to my neighborhood! My city hasn’t been evacuated, but the next city close to the fires has been. Praying for everyone affected to be safe! Because I’ve met my reading goal, I have decided to stop requesting ARCs for now (and I hope I will not be tempted!). I will try my best to read all the ones that I have right now and stop mood reading. I will keep this update short, […]

I Need to Read More! November 2018 Monthly Wraps

I Need to Read More! November 2018 Monthly Wraps

Last month on I Heart Romance & YA   So, October is perhaps my lowest reading month ever this year! Eeeep! I have alluded to changes this month so that may be why reading has been on the down-low. I’ve been busy at work, too so I have been sleeping really early and not getting enough reading time! I did manage to read a few ebooks, which is pretty surprising! On a good note, I discovered a new fave author – SARA NEY! OMG! I am in love with her Douchebag series! Give me more sweet and cuddly douches, please! […]

Currently Reading Weeks 40-41: Changes

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks Hey, Wormies! How have the last two weeks been treating you? There are a few life changes going on right now and honestly, I couldn’t be happier. I won’t say much about it, though! Anyway, October hasn’t been an awesome reading month so far since I keep falling asleep at around 10 PM! So, there hasn’t been a lot of reading going on. On the other hand, I discovered a new favorite author – Grace Draven! OMG! Phoenix Unbound was amazing! My review will be up soon! I’ve also started to slow down with reading […]
