August Page Habit Unboxing

All my plans to keep up with my blogging this week did not go according to plan because my boyfriend brought home a kitten. I have been wanting a cat for quite some time. So most of my attention has gone to her. Even as writing this post she keeps stepping on the keyboard making it difficult to blog. Her name is Kitty. I know, how very orginal. Lol Well, enough about Kitty and on with the rest of the post. 

PageHabit is an awesome monthly book subscription service. It is in my opinion the best book subscription service. Even though I haven’t received any other book box but I have watched many unboxing videos for other companies and this the only were I felt the need to get one.

June Wrap Up

Welcome to my June Wrap Up 🙂

I can’t believe it is July already! Where does the time go? I feel like every year it just goes by quicker than the previous one. Anybody else feel that way? I am so ready for July mostly because Game of Thrones finally comes out. I am a huge fan of that show and need to know what going to happen. Any ways lets get on with it, in June I read 8 books and I have to say I did a good job with sticking to the books I wanted to read.

May TBR

Welcome to my May TBR,

After browsing my bookshelves these are the 6 books that I most want to read this month.

King Arthur and His Knights of The Round Table by Roger Lancelyn Green

May TBR I have been reading children’s classic every month lately and decided to continue on that route and also that King Arthur movie comes out this month. I am going to see that movie because I have a crush on Charlie Hunnam and will see any movie he is in. I figured I might as well read the book as well this month.

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

May TBRI love a good thriller and this one sounds soo good and have been wanting to read it since I bought it in December. May will be the month that I finish this book. I think I will fly through this book because it is a thriller, is only 300 pages and the font is fairly big.

The Couple Next Door is about this couple Anne and Marco Conti who attend a dinner party with the couple next door and leaves their baby at home thinking it wouldn’t be a big deal but when they arrive home for the night they find their baby missing. Continue reading “May TBR”

April TBR

For my April TBR I plan on finishing the two series I started in March, the Gemma Doyle Trilogy and the Delirium Series. I have also borrowed a book from the library that I would like to get to this month. I would also like to finish some of the books that were on my March TBR that I didn’t get to read like the Of Beast and Beauty and Cruel Beauty but I didn’t want to include them in this post because I would just be repeating myself.

April TBR 2017 Continue reading “April TBR”
