  • State of the ARC, 18-Feb-19

    State of the ARC, created by Evelina @ Avalina’s Books, is a monthly meme where you share your ARC progress, challenges, wins, woes, and mishaps. You can also join the Goodreads group ARCs Anonymous!       Welcome to February’s State of the ARC! Last year, the only ARCs I had my hands on were the ‘Read Now’ selections on NetGalley. By the end of November, I started to go on a requesting spree across different platforms thinking I would simply be denied… and of course to my complete suprise and delight, a handful of approvals unexpectedly stormed through! Whoops!! While I’m super excited to have been approved, I’ve been stressing…

  • Talk Nerdy To Me: Jan’19 Wrap Up

  • January Book Haul

    Welcome to my first ever ‘Book Haul’! I am an avid library patron, so I won’t ever have a tall stack of newly purchased books. I do however, dabble every once in a while! I believe you can be a reader, a blogger, and a reviewer without needing to own very many books, or even a proper bookshelf. (Any surface with a book on it is automatically a ‘bookshelf’, right?!) 😉   Physical Haul ~ ☀️ indicates an ARC ~     ☀️ The Princess and the Fangirl By Ashley Poston   Match Me If You Can By Tiana Smith     eBook Haul ~ ☀️ indicates an ARC ~    A…
