Coffee Book Tag

Coffee Book Tag

What’s up, my book peeps?

I’ve been so busy with all the stupid adult responsibilities I have, I haven’t had time to read, post on bookstagram, or post here. It’s the lamest thing ever. Growing up isn’t all unicorns and free books, guys.

Anyway, in the small amount of free time I have, I’ve been looking around for inspiration for my next blog post (that’s this one!), and while I have a list of things I could write about, writing about coffee on a day when I could really use another cup seemed like fun. A few people I follow have done the Coffee Book tag, and while I feel like one of them might have tagged me (code for: I commented my undying love for the tag and they awkwardly told me I should give it a go πŸ˜‚). So, I’m sort of tagging myself. But that’s okay because I’m an independent person. πŸ˜‰ And since I haven’t technically been tagged, I’ll take the suffering away from you by tagging anyone who reads this who would like to do it! It’s perfect for a rainy day post, when you need a hot beverage. And on that note, is anyone else craving autumn? Or is that just me? It’s my favorite season for a reason, and while I like summer, it always feels a little too long.

Check In Challenge

Check In Challenge

Hello! And happy Friday! My most favorite day of the week πŸ˜‰

This morning I was sort of tagged by my very sweet friend Lissa from @RabidReadsΒ do to something really fun! She decided that since it is July (how did that happen?), she wanted to look into her past reads of the year and share the books that she awarded a 5-star rating. I loved reading her post, and I think it’s such a great idea for a sort of tag/challenge! She asked a few other bloggers to do it as well, but I’ll just ask that anyone who wants to do this, do it! And connect it back to Lissa, because I bet she’d love seeing all of your posts.

I’ve read 33 books so far this year. Not a great amount, but not bad, considering I’m at University/college. I’ll be going off my Goodreads challenge list, starting with my most recent 5-star rating and moving back through the months into January.

First up is the last book I finished, Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter.Β 


I haven’t gotten around to posting a review for you guys yet, but I absolutely loved this book. I mentioned in my review for Alice in Zombieland that once I adjusted my expectations of this series, I liked it way more. And let me say, this book didn’t disappoint me at all. It was funny, action-packed, romantic, and a little creepy. Everything I was hoping for. I also read it in one day πŸ˜‰ Β So there is that.

The Get to Know Me Tag

The Get to Know Me Tag

Hello!

I was tagged by the lovely Stephanie from @ignitingpagesΒ to do the Get to Know Me tag. And since I haven’t shared that much of myself with you guys in my posts, and I always think these are fun to read about other people, I thought I’d give it a whirl!

Birthday: October 31st (which is the holiday Halloween here in the US. Which means I got loads of extra free candy when Trick Or Treating. Too bad I was too shy to go very often).

The Alphabet Book Tag

The Alphabet Book Tag

Hey guys!

Earlier I saw the Alphabet book tag by @ohbookish and I decided I’d like to give it a shot! πŸ™‚ It seems like a lot of fun! But also kind of hard…

So, the rules are simple! Name a book for each letter of the alphabet. The book has to be either one you own or one you have read. And then wait to see how long it takes you to do it… πŸ˜‚
