October 2018 Wrap-up

How is it November? Thanksgiving is 3 weeks from today?!?! October flew by, but I got a ton of reading done – 15 books. A good month for me. Also did a little watching too – see below.

Read

Favorite book: Off the Ice by LP Dover
Least Favorite book:  Trusting You by Ketley Allison

I watched Part 2 of Making a Murder in October and I would highly recommend it. It starts off pretty slow, but the last four episodes totally make up for it. I’m obsessed with the case and I hope there are more seasons to come.

September 2018 Wrap Up

I can’t believe how fast this month went. I had an incredibly busy month at work, so it’s amazing that I read even 12 books.  I am hoping for a slower October so I can get some more reading done! I have a bunch of ARC’s to read this month. So here’s a recap:

Read

Favorite book: The Good Samaritan by R.C. Boldt. Probably the best book I’ve read this year.

April 2018 Wrap up

OMG, how is it May already??? April flew by! April is always a busy month for me – baseball starts and it’s also my oldest son’s birthday. I did manage to read 12 books this month (though some were pretty short). I haven’t really binged anything in a while, but I’m a few episodes in on Wild, Wild Country and I’m enjoying that so far.

Favorite book: Something So Unscripted by Natasha Madison
Least Favorite book:  Catfished by Stella Bixby

I’m still reading ARC’s galore. I can’t help myself when I get those emails that say “sign up”. It’s like an addiction…..

I was missing a good Friday meme, so I started one called Fave Five Fridays. It’s been a few weeks, but this past Friday, Krystin at Here’s the Fucking Twist did a post! I was so excited – thanks Krystin! Check back every Friday for new topics, and if there is a topic you’d like to see, let me know!
