Book Tag: Who Am I? BACK! That’s who.

Well, ok, sort of. But ladies and gentlemen who have been eagerly (cough, that's what I'm telling myself, cough) waiting for me to return to the blog game: here I am! I swear I am alive, but you wouldn't know it thanks to my giant hiatus. It's not been great for my reading but it has been great for my self care! I can't say I'm jumping back into blogging and reading at the same rate I was before, it was a bit overwhelming in the most overwhelming time of my life but I've been actively missing this community and all the books I've not been reading. My husband and I are moving to New Mexico at the end of August, I'm taking an impromptu trip to Spain two weeks before the move to visit my best friend, we're going to Colorado in two weeks and my husbands PhD defense is next month. So life is a whirlwind but it's all been exciting and positive because we finally have a house and we're finally going to live in the mountains!!

Review: The Open Portal by Michael Scott Clifton!

Happy Thursday book lovers! I've been a bit MIA the past couple of weeks with traveling and nailing down the end of my husbands PhD and our move out of state but I swear I'm getting back to it! I'm really excited that despite being a *tad* behind on some of my other reviews that… Continue reading Review: The Open Portal by Michael Scott Clifton!

Thoughtful Thursday: Next on Deck!

Happy Thursday everyone! I’ve been pretty MIA with a business trip, my best friends Master’s Graduation and then a trip to NM to look at neighborhoods for our upcoming move. It’s been a whirlwind to say the least and reading/blogging had to take a back seat. However! I’m getting back on the wagon and I’ve got a review for Run Away coming at y’all soon. I thought I’d take today to show y’all what I’m reading and what I will be reading and review in the next couple of weeks.

Top 5 Wednesday: Bookish Things I’ve Changed My Mind About!

I don't know about y'all but I would personally be an incredibly gracious winner of the lottery, so I don't understand why I haven't won yet. I mean, it could be in large part due to the fact that I don't gamble or play the lottery but can't a girl just catch a break? I'm hitting that mid-week slump pretty hard right now and the week long rainy weather we're having in Texas ain't helping. However! For once I don't have every moment of my weekend planned and I'll get some good relaxation in and I couldn't be more thrilled. For now though I wanted to participate in another round of Top 5 Wednesday! This is a weekly meme hosted by a group on Goodreads and is a fun way to explore different topics. This week is bookish things you've changed your mind about!

Review: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North!

So as you're all probably well aware, I strive really hard to be a very positive person - sometimes relentlessly so. I genuinely believe that life is an attitude problem and if you focus on the negative, you can't be surprised when things are negative. Granted, sometimes life just really is a bummer and I get that. So I say this because this is my 100th review on my Goodreads profile!!! I would love to tell you this was a 5-star read for this milestone, but alas it was not. So maybe I'm a little extra bitter this time because I wanted this read to knock it out of the park, but it's kind of my own fault and I'll get to that later. So off we go then!

Book Tag: The Liebster Award!

Happy Friday y'all! My best friend who has been stateside from Spain is leaving town tomorrow and I get to see her just one last time in the great state of Texas before she heads back and I wont see her again until we don't live in Texas anymore (CA-RAY-ZAY). I hope everyone has wonderful weekends planned ahead of them and that it's full of all the things you want! We here in Dallas are looking at more rain starting Sunday and going into next week. I can't say that I mind because I love all weather and there's something so *romantic* about April showers in Texas. Anywho, I've been tagged in The Liebster Award book tag by Savannah of Reviews by Savi!
