A couple of weeks ago one of my beautiful, beautiful friends texted me and told me the most wonderful news I had ever heard. There was a flash warehouse sale for Half-Price Books near her house going on that was ending that day. After hearing this I, obviously, responded saying that I would be there … Continue reading September Haul|Droppin all these dollah dollah bills yo

When I started doing Down the TBR Hole my Goodreads TBR was at over 1200 books. Which is INSANE.

Oh hey. So, at the beginning of May I decided that I wouldn’t force myself to commit to a TBR like I’d been doing for a while. I was hoping that this way I would be more inclined to read and not feel pressure to read books that I’m not interested in reading at that … Continue reading May Recap

Allllllllrighty friends. Here we are.

If I’m being completely honest I didn’t have the best reading month. I essentially completely ignored my TBR, which means that I didn’t complete the majority of the books that I had listed as by OWL books. Which is great. Love that.
