Changes

Cleaning up the Blog a little. I haven’t been doing Reading Challenges lately, nor have I been tracking my ‘One Million Pages!’ as well as I should have, so I’ve gone and deleted it all. It was just starting to stress me out.

I think I’ll keep the general ‘Challenges’ Tabs for a while longer yet. Maybe I’ll host some challenges? Mostly I plan to save that space for if I ever join a reading challenge again, so I have somewhere to link to for it.

So we’ll see what happens there, for now it’ll just be ‘under construction’ as I try and figure out what I really wanna do with that tab. Only the future knows at this point *shrugs*

An Update, of Sorts.

Yes I’m still alive! Have I had the time I wanted to read books? Not quite so much.

My Sister had a Baby Girl last year, and for a while, I only babysat for her once in a great while. Shortly after my previous entry (Tyger Tyger) I found myself babysitting almost everyday, sometimes half the day, sometimes all day. That trend hasn’t let up any, and picking up Crochet again hasn’t helped with time to read!

However, a recent shift in Sister’s schedual has me with a free day, so here’s what I’m currently reading:

  • The Almond Tree By Michelle Cohen Corasanti
  • Teeth: Vampire Tales, Edited by Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling
  • The Adventures of Robin Hood by Paul Creswick

Right now I’m about a hundred pages into Almond Tree, and I’ve cried like three times cause of it. So that one will be a slower read while I give myself time to get over the emotions the story brings up. I’ve already started writing my little mini-reviews for Teeth but I’m saving those stories for Baby’s Naptime, and Robin Hood I started so long ago I’m starting over, just to refresh my memory. but yes, reviews are coming! I got a few more books waiting to be read as well, but I think these three are a good start for now.

Also, if you follow any of my other blogs, a few of them are undergoing a complete make-over! Why not go check them out? I’ll have links for them up in the ‘about’ page by tonight.

!!Under Construction!!

With a New Year comes a New Look! You’ll be finding stuff disappearing, vanishing, moving,  hiding or just plain being removed entirely. Not to fear, the dust will settle soon, and I’ll still be reviewing books if I finish them  before I finish the construction, please be patient with me. This will probably take a while.

Bookshelf Tour!

Hey Everyone! I’m reorganizing my bookshelves and FINALLY doing something with that Bookshelf Tour tab! I’ve only gotten three shelves sorted out so far, so I’m still not done, but the three shelves I finished are all set for viewing so if your curious, go check it out! Meanwhile, I got more reading and reorganizing to do… ugh… seems like the more books I pull from the shelves to reorganize, the less go back on! @.@; I dunno if I’ll have a bed tonight after this. X.x;

TBR Number Generator and Goodreads App

Okay, so, my goodreads ‘To Be Read’ pile is…. quite large, to say the least. So in order to cut that down, I am going to start doing random number generators! I plan to read one book of my own choosing from any source – Library, my own collection, purchase it, and one book from my TBR list. Mind this dose not include my physical ‘tbr’ pile. Some of them are in my goodreads, other are not. I’ll fix that later.

For now, the list is at a total of 832 books. Yeaaaaa… Since this list will shrink with each book taken off the list, expect to see repeating numbers, since they won’t be the same titles each time. I mean come on, a list of 832 books, I could get 11  a dozen times or more and still get different books.

So let’s get this taken care of shall we? Now I am reading a book from my list already because I want to finish the series, so that one is my ‘book of choice’ and it’s Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files: Death Masks.

The Random number generator has chosen for me, book number 826! Luckily for me, that’s one already in my personal pile. Book 826 is (most likely out of date) Modern Nations of the Wold: Egypt By Stuart A. Kallen.

Also, I’ve been having a liiiittle trouble remembering which books I’ve already read and which ones I haven’t. Lucky me I discovered the Goodreads App through a Booktuber, YA BookwormBlogger! She had a video posted of her fave Bookish Apps, take a look at the video here:

After taking a look at the Goodreads App myself, I figured this would be perfect! I could scan in books I want to read later from the library, and take a quick look through my shelves to see if I’ve already read the book by simply having a shelf on my goodreads labeled owned, as well as the standard ‘read’ shelf. This is definitely going to help me figure out what books to check from the library next! With all the sun finally coming through and it’s not so cold here, I’ll be walking back and forth from the library quite often. 😀
