Review: The Wicked King by Holly Black!

Ah yes, as we come to the close of another weekend and must all face the dreaded Monday blues together, let us rejoice in the ability to escape into the great land of literature. I didn't have a lot of reading time this weekend but I've finally actually started my two "currently reading" books and they're both fabulous so far so I'm really looking forward to finishing them. I've also found the next project I'm commissioning my husband to make as I slowly but surely get everything together for our [soonish] move to New Mexico. Anywho, in non-book related news I also watched Netflix's Abducted in Plain Sight and ya'll that was IN-SANE and if you haven't seen it and are into true crime - I definitely suggest it!

[Belated] Sneak Peek Sunday: My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing + Upcoming Reads!

As I sit here and lament the fact that it's Monday, and therefore the very beginning of another long work week I am simultaneously jumping for joy for all the great books out there in the world just waiting for me to read them! Today I'm linking up with Kim of It's All About The Thrill and Brenda and Norma of Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee!

I've still set my reading goal at 100 books, but I'm working on broadening my reading scope further and selecting books I really want to read.

However, that's not the only thing I wanted to do today, I also wanted to take some time to give ya'll a sneak peek of my upcoming 2019 short list of reads! I've put in a bunch of requests at my library, I'm eagerly awaiting some 2019 releases and finishing up some of my top 2018 TBR books as well. It's been a long time coming but I'm gearing up to bring you guys not just a lot of reviews - but a lot of recipes to go with them as well!
