For some reason, 2022 seemed to both drag and fly by. Now, here we are on the cusp of 2023. Twenty twenty-three. A New Year. Can you believe it?
2022 was a crazy year for me with moving back to the states from Japan and being homeless for a coupe of months and starting a new job. As a result, my reading was a bit up and down as a result. 2023 should be a bit more stable since I don’t plan on another big move. And so I have made some big reading goals!
As a book nerd who’s on numerous bookish email newsletters and in numerous bookish groups, I often hear the buzz about some new app or a new website, and usually not too long after whatever it was has launched. Most recently, people have been buzzing about the The StoryGraph.
I don’t always immediately check out whatever the latest buzz is, but I kept hearing and reading more and more about the StoryGraph, I thought I’d check it out.
Somehow, someway, I have committed myself to 5 different reading challenges. That’s right. Five.
I blame Litsy (mostly).
I also blame Litsy for my exponentially growing TBR, so much so, that I put myself on a book buying ban earlier this month.
(Of course, I may have already broken that ban when I received an email today from Subterranean Press about a special edition of Kevin Hearne’s Hexed, book 2 of the Iron Druid Chronicles. I had already pre-ordered Hounded, Book 1, so I *had* to pre-order Hexed. Right?) Continue reading “Summer ’18 Reading Challenges”
If you follow me on Litsy, then you’ve probably seen my #QuotsyApril18 posts. I’ve had a blast finding quotes and designing images to meet each day’s prompt. So much so, I decided to do a recap. Continue reading “Quotsy April Recap”
If you hadn’t already figured it out, I love books. (See here, here, and here—there are more examples, but I didn’t feel like digging them up and I figured these were enough.)
I read a lot. And I always have at least one book on me at all times. Even when I’m not carrying a physical book, I have both the Kindle and Audible apps on my phone (although I prefer physical books).
Along with my love of books, I love all things bookish (bookstores, book websites, book accessories, book-themed tees, book-themed socks, book-themed [fill-in-the-blank]). And I like love to talk about books and all things bookish. Want to engage me in conversation? Ask me what I’m reading or for a recommendation or where to buy awesome bookish stuff.
