ARC Review: Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan

Thank you so much to NetGalley and Wednesday books for letting me read Ruthless Gods early! When I put in my request for it, I thought there was no way I’d be approved to review it, but pretty soon after I submitted it, there it was, sitting on my NetGalley shelf! Wicked Saints was one of my favorite books of 2019, so I was super excited to read Ruthless Gods this year, and it definitely didn’t disappoint! Ruthless Gods comes out on April 7th, so make sure you grab a copy then!

NetGalley TBR Updates

Well, it’s Thursday and I still haven’t finished a book so I can’t get y’all a review yet BUT I’m hopeful that I should have a review ready for y’all by Monday so soon! Instead, somehow, in the past few days, I’ve gotten a ridiculous amount of approvals on NetGalley, so right now I have 10 books (!) waiting for me in my queue, so I figured I’d give y’all an update on what all I’ll be reading soon!Read More »

Social Distancing Reading Update March 23

Hey guys, as the corona virus spreads throughout the world, here in North Carolina, we started implementing social distancing last week and my office told us to work from home starting last Monday and things have been… harder than expected. I thought I’d be able to have fun and hang out at home, read all the books, learn some new hobbies, stuff like that- instead I’ve been working for pretty much my full 8 hours every day, my dog has been freaking out multiple times a day because he wants his independence and alone time back, and there’s no time for anything else pretty much because I’m exhausted after work. (Now, I don’t want any of this to sound like I’m complaining too much, because I’m mostly healthy, and while I do have asthma, it’s not bad and I’m taking really good care of myself and I’m super privileged that I don’t have to go into work or work crazy hours, so I know it could be worse and I’ve heard the horror stories and I’ve talked to the people working at the grocery stores when I go out to replenish supplies, and they’ve been seeing the worst in some people recently.)

BUT the main topic of today’s blog is my reading update for this time of social distancing! Read More »

ARC Review: Havenfall by Sara Holland

Wow can y’all believe that we’re nearing the end of February already?! It’s so crazy AND we finally got our first snowfall of the season here in NC last week (which was super late, but definitely greatly appreciated!). I finally finished reading my digital ARC copy of Havenfall by Sara Holland (thank you so much to Bloomsbury YA and NetGalley for letting me read it early!) during some of my snow down time! The concept for the book was definitely really interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Weekend Reads- February 21-23

So I haven’t finished a book all week, which is kinda weird for me. I want to say that it’s because I’ve been busy, but the only other things I’ve done this week have been watch TV (I rediscovered my love for nature shows haha), go on a first date with this great guy from a dating app (and ok sure, that took up a pretty decent amount of time on Tuesday and then I have been texting him a good amount since then), go to a workout class on Wednesday night (and my instructor killed me, so my arms are still kinda jelly today, which sucks, because I’m going to another workout class at noon and I’m not sure how I’m going to do any of the pushups I’m sure Amanda is going to want us to do), and work (which let’s be real, takes up too much of my time anyway), which I guess, now that I write it all out, seems like a lot…

I’m doubling down this weekend though and I’m going to finish at least 2 books (hopefully 3) and these are the ones that I’ve decided to finish (and why I’m going to finish them):Read More »
