Signed copies are priceless – well, to us book hoarders/collectors/nerds anyway.They are like a pirate’s bounty to us; we hunt them down, treasure map in hand and walk the ends of the earth (or at least our bookstores anyway) to find them. Whether you are an avid collector or just starting out, you will never forget your first autographed edition.

Life Update & Absence + New Years Resolutions

Happy New Year you filthy animals! 😉

As we ring in the New Year 2017 I’d like to share my New Years Resolutions for 2017 and also share a little about my absence during the close of 2016. I fully admit that I am perhaps not the best blogger. I try – I really try but sometimes life catches up with me and I find myself pulled away for short periods of time. The thing is I hit a bit of a stressful and rough patch the past three months. I was being verbally and emotionally abused in the workplace which not only ignited a seriously negative mindset but also one of the largest reading slumps of my life. I was barely reading for three months and those books I did manage to push through I was unable to review.

A year in books – best and worst of 2016 Part 1

2016.

Yeah, not so good for me. Honestly this was one of the most challenging and hardest years of my life. Yes, everyone has problems and obstacles to overcome and yes each year is filled with both good and bad but 2016 was a beast. Both on a personal and global scale I feel as though we’ve all taken a few bad hits this year.

So, in honer of the last day of 2016 and to ring in the new year 2017 (I am so making 2017 my bitch. I’m telling you this will be my year – positive thinking is powerful 😉 ) I am going to share my year in books. This is a great time to reflect on the amazing characters I’ve met, the incredible journeys taken and the best and worst of 2016. So Let’s get started!

They happen to all of us, yes – even the most dedicated reader experiences the dreaded slump at some point. For the past two months I’ve been stuck in one of the worst slumps in the history of reading slumps so I figured I would share some ways to break free and get back to your over-piled TBRs.

Life Update

So, you may or may not have noticed (depending on how many people actually read this blog – hopefully a few!) that over the past month I have been more than a little MIA. This can be further proved by the fact that there have been no, none what so ever blog posts during the month of July. Why? Well I am here to clear this up and to apologize profoundly for my brief absence, trust me when I say I have missed blogging and I have missed you even more! AND – I have a lot of posts and goodies planed for the months of August and September to make it up to you! (Starting with my rather long and intense review of the eighth and final Harry Potter book, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’. Click here to see the full review.)
