10 Series I’m Marathoning in 2017

7

I have an unhealthy book-buying obsession, particularly when it comes to purchasing entire series in a single sitting without having read a single installment in said series.  While this method proves rather unfortunate when I’m assigning a one star review to the first book in the series, my inner perfectionist is overjoyed to see the entire series (with matching covers, of course) perched on my bookshelf.

Winter Wonderland Book Tag

A huge thank you to Kathy over at the Novelty of Life for nominating me for the Winter Wonderland Book Tag!

Snow is my favorite reading weather, and I can never resist curling up with a good book.  Considering a snowstorm has rendered me stuck inside by the fireplace for the majority of the day, I couldn’t think of a better time to complete this tag!

With Halloween right around the corner, I’m extremely excited to announce a new project that I’ve been working on with Kathy over at The Novelty of Life!


For several months, Kathy and I have been wracking our brains for a creative way to incorporate the holidays into our blogging – we wanted to see more festive posts, holiday-themed book recommendations, challenges, and read-a-thons, etc.  Noticing the relative lack of these holiday-related components, particularly in the book blogging community, we concocted a solution that quickly adopted the name “Festive Reads.”

For us, 2015 was laden with countless excellent young adult and adult new releases, as well as a few older publications that we fell in love with.  With the year coming to a rapid close, we wanted to share some of our favorites reads from the past twelve months.  A few of these could come in handy for those Barnes and Noble giftcards that your family sends you throughout the holidays!

The first person to correctly complete the puzzle and email it to us will have their blog or Goodreads account featured on our sidebar and will also be mentioned in our Sunday Stumper post the following week.

2014 Christmas List

5

As 2014 draws to a close, we bookaholics have one last opportunity to amass a large volume of books in a short time period (every to-read shelf’s worst nightmare): Christmas.  While some people may be asking for laptops, or phones, or cars this holiday season, we composed a quite lengthy list of books that we promptly distributed to anyone who asked.  We figured we would share our lists with all of you, and we’ll follow this post up with a book haul later this week to show everyone what we received!
