  • WWW Wednesday, 9-Jan-19

    Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB @ A Daily Rhythm and revived by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.     The Three Ws are: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?     Currently Reading A Duke by Default Reluctant Royals, Book 2 By Alyssa Cole I’m absolutely in love with the Reluctant Royals series! The second book follows Portia, Ledi’s best friend from A Princess in Theory. If you didn’t like her before, she’ll grow on you immediately in this with her Project: New Portia. Oh my, did I fail…

  • January Jam Jar / Late-a-thon TBR

    ‘January Jam Jar’ is part of ‘Devour Your TBR’ A monthly themed reading challenge to reduce that mountainous pile of unread gems, without all of the stress. Hosted by Kathy @ Books and Munches   In a brilliantly paired duo, the ‘Late-a-thon’ can fit perfectly into ‘January Jam Jar’! Hosted by Destiny @ Howling Libraries   If you’d like to learn more about either, click on the images or tags. I can’t believe I’m getting behind and it’s less than a week into the new year, but good news: I finally put together my #JanJamJar!! I wrote down about a half a dozen books, folded them into tiny paper aeroplanes…

  • Short-a-thon Wrap Up

    Co-hosted by Destiny @ Howling Libraries and Kathy @ Books and Munchies Twitter: @Shortathon & #shortathon18   It’s difficult to admit that I was in a {slump} in December. I hadn’t finished a book since the last week of November, so I thought that the Short-a-thon was just the key! Simply pick out the shortest books on my shelf and read up!! Super easy-peasy. I had been looking forward to the readathon for a while, I was so pumped! Sooo… I’m completely shocked that I didn’t make it through my TBR that I had so much fun creating.   What I Read: Harry Potter Shorts ✧ Quidditch Through the Ages ✧ ✧…

  • Bookish 2019: Looking Forward

    In my previous two posts I reflected on the books I read in 2018. Now I’m looking to 2019 with anticipation for what the year will bring! You can call this post what you like: goals // resolutions // motivations. There’s a stigma of failure (an element of stress) for me if I personally refer to them as anything but simply: Things I’m Looking Forward This Year.   12 Books to Read (A-Z) ~ Released Prior to 2019 ~     1. All Systems Red by Martha Wells   2. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir   3. Circe by Madeline Miller   4. A Duke by Default by…

  • Talk Nerdy to Me 2018 (a.k.a. My Year in Review)

    Happy 2019 to everyone!!   There’s always something a bit magical about a new year. Before I get to my reading goals this year, I wanted to take a look back at… yesterday! I always read right up to the last minute so I didn’t want to rush this post before 2018 went kaput. First, I have to shout out to Melanie @ Mel to the Any, as she inspired me with her post for 2017 to even start a blog! I like to bring out my nerd a bit more often than is socially acceptable. So much so that my main motivation for creating a blog beyond simply going…

  • Top 18 of 2018

    I hope you’re enjoying the final day of 2018! I love lists, however, the following was more difficult to put together than I was anticipating. Uff-da! Why would I want to rank my top reads for the year when my mind goes instantly blank when asked what my favorite book of all time is? As such, feel free take the order of my “Top 18 of 2018” list as a general guideline because it will probably be rearranged slightly tomorrow!   18. My Favorite Thing is Monsters, Vol. 1 by Emil Farris Who ever thought I would pick up, let alone thoroughly enjoy a 400+ page graphic novel? This year…

  • Naughty or Nice Book Tag

    Happy Christmas! Since I’m in the holiday spirit and I’ve seen this tag go around, I decided to see what Santa might bring with him down the chimney tonight! Be sure to check out the original post by Jenn @ Jenniely!   1. Received an ARC and not reviewed it ✔️ Whoops! While I haven’t missed any publishing deadlines, I am behind for the year. Hopefully, I’ll be able to cruise through my outstanding ARCs during the Late-a-thon hosted by Destiny @ Howling Libraries in January?! *Fingers crossed!*   2. Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley Whew, I’m sitting happy at 79%! My goal is to stay above…

  • Short-a-thon TBR

    Co-hosted by Destiny @ Howling Libraries and Kathy @ Books and Munchies Twitter: @Shortathon & #shortathon18   Achieve your reading goals by focusing on the shortest books on your TBR during the final days of 2018! No stress, right? Haha, I have my last exam tomorrow and my sister flies in for Chrissie tonight so naturally it’s a procrastinator’s time for list-making! I’ve been looking forward to the short-a-thon for the last month and I finally went through and (1) added my kindle backlog TBR to Goodreads and (2) organized my TBR books from shortest to longest so I can *finally* put this list together. Pigs will fly if I actually…

  • Welcome to ‘Bubbly Booknerd’!

    I am ecstatic to announce that my book blog is NOW LIVE!   Whaaat?! I need a minute to run around and scream… 🙈🙉🙊 2018 was pivotal year in reading for me. A tiny bit dramatic, but I still can’t believe what I accomplished this year! It all started when I joined the ‘Popsugar Reading Challenge’ in February with an astronomical goal of reading 50 books. A little background: I read 12 books in 2017 and 12 books in 2016, so 5-0 was mind boggling for me! Have I met my goal? Yes and no. Yes, I’ve read over 50 books, and no they didn’t all fit nicely into the…
