Thoughts/Ramblings:

Okay, okay... I know what you must be thinking. (*Gasp* Lyndsey, how could you not do any reading on the last day of the read-a-thon?!) Now... in my defense, I did read, I did a lot of reading. However all my reading was a continuation of the fanfiction I started yesterday. And I'm not sorry. I had a wonderful reading experience and my urge to write feels vastly inspired. Even though I wasn't able to add to my word count I still had lots of fun during this read-a-thon. I'm only sorry that I kept missing the twitter chats. For shame, Lyndsey, for shame. There's always next time though, right? (:

Thoughts/Ramblings:

Don't let my lack of reading confuse you. I'm still massively enjoying Crown of Midnight. It's a great read and I'm so intrigued to see how things end up, I simply got distracted reading a lot of fanfiction yesterday as well. I would count the fic's I read into my progress for the day, cause I got through a lot, but seeing as how I can't count pages of fanfics I wouldn't know where to begin to factor that in. So, alas, it seems as though I slacked yesterday. But I didn't. So I'm still happy. (: I hope everyone's reading is going well.  Happy adventures!

Thoughts/Ramblings:

I finally shook the mini-slump. I feel so much better now. And I'm really glad I decided to continue on with the ToG series. I'm really loving this story and how the characters and plot are progressing. I'm definitely thinking I'm enjoying this book more than the first. I'm so excited to see where things are gonna go and how everything turns out. However, I won't lie, I'm a little nervous. I'm praying for a happy ending. Haha! (;

Thoughts/Ramblings:

Well, I still haven't been able to figure out exactly what I want to read next, but I've narrowed my options down to two books at least. I guess it's safe to say I'm having a bit of a struggle. I spent the day doing some other things so hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get back into the flow I've had. I'm really hoping I do. This semi-slump is disheartening and frustrating. I hope your reading has been going well! (:

Thoughts/Ramblings:

Today was a great day. I was able to get a lot of reading done, finished Ignite Me (which I adored by the way), and then I went and watched some tv. I have absolutely zero clue what I want to pick up next. There are far too many options available to me at the moment. Hopefully I'll be able to make a decision soon and keep up with this good reading streak. Fingers crossed! I hope your reading has been satisfying for you this week.

I had another great reading day today and I'm super proud about that. Throne of Glass was brilliant and I can't wait to get into the rest of the series and see how things progress. I just I just need to figure out what is the best order to continue the series, Assassin's Blade or Crown of Midnight first? Ignite Me already has me hooked and I can't even express all my massive emotions for that story right now. So many feels. I'm  definitely happy with today's progress. I'm hoping tomorrow will be just as good!

Thoughts/Ramblings: 

I think I had a pretty good day today. I'm actually really proud of how far I got on the first day. I honestly wasn't expecting to get so many pages read. But I did! So that's great. I'm only about 70ish pages from the end of the book, which I'm certain I'll have finished by tomorrow, and then I'll have to figure out what I'm picking up next. I think I know already. Anyways, I'm really proud of what I got accomplished. How was your first day of the read-a-thon? Were you able to achieve your personal goals for the day? What are you reading at the moment?

This is not a drill people... Bout of Books is back!!

I'm so friggin' excited! I love the Bout of Books read-a-thons and this one came as a pleasant surprise. I'm not certain what I'll be reading for this event just yet. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what I'm in the mood for when the time comes. Makes me feel dangerous and mysterious. For those who don't know what this amazing event is:

If you're joining along in the fun too, let me know in the comments below! Do you already know what you're going to read? If so, what is it? If you're as clueless as I am, that's fine too, at least we're not alone. You can tell me what you think you might read. That's acceptable as well. Or simply just telling me your joining also works. Simplifies things. (:

Hello Again! *Christmas/Birthday Book Haul*

Hello everyone. Now that the holidays are over, and family are all back in their respective homes, I can finally stop slacking on my blog. Yay! So this past month has been really crazy with everything from Christmas and New Years and I even celebrated a few birthdays (including my own) this past month. As you can probably already guess... I have A LOT of new books now added to my already huge TBR pile. But I'm actually excited. A little daunted, but extremely excited. There's a bunch of great books I got. 
(Not all the books in the photos are what I got this month... only the majority)

These are my new beautiful babies. I'm so very much in love with all of them. I shall be very busy for the next few months. That's for sure. Such amazing stories!! I believe I've only heard good things about all of these. But anyways... I'm slightly veering off topic. Focus.

Books I got:

Unravel Me / Unite Me / Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi
Assassin's Blade / Crown of Midnight / Heir of Fire - Sarah J Maas
The Raven Boys / The Dream Thieves / Blue Lily, Lily Blue - Maggie Stiefvater
Snow Like Ashes -
