Book Event: 2017 Ohioana Book Festival + Book Haul


On Saturday April 8th, I attended the 10th annual Ohioana Book Festival.  This event takes place in Columbus Ohio (about 1-1.5 hours north of where I live) every year, and focuses on featuring & promoting Ohio authors.

March 2017 Wrap-Up + Book Haul


Happy end of March bookworms!

After my ridiculous reading month in January when I read 11 books, I really thought I had peaked in 2017.  That was until I read 14 books in March.  #NailedIt

My blogging month was also not too shabby.  All around, March was good to me.

Let’s recap shall we?

December 2016 Wrap-Up + Book Haul


As much as I love the holidays, I am always a little relieved to see them go.  I am a creature of habit and routine, so the holidays really throw my schedule out the window.  I was surprised that I managed to read 8 books this month!

Let’s see what I accomplished this month, shall we?

Christmas 2016: A Very Bookish Christmas Haul


Good evening bookworms!

Today I thought I would brag about share my bookish Christmas haul!  My husband really stepped up his Christmas gift giving game this year and totally nailed it.  NOT only did he buy me books off my wish list, but he even took the liberty to buy me a few other bookish goodies.  To say he spoiled me is an understatement.

November 2016 Wrap-Up + Book Haul


Eek! It’s almost December, and you all know what that means… Christmas time!  Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year.  I have found that I love Christmas more as a parent than I did as a child.  There is just something about watching your own children experience the magic of Christmas 🙂

November was a good month for me both in reading and blogging.  I am very pleased with my productivity, especially after my sporadic blogging month in October.  I managed to read 10 books in November!  My goal in November was to have a “NetGalley November” and only read NetGalley approvals.  I read 4 out of the 6 NetGalley books on my November TBR, which isn’t great but not bad either.  The remaining 6 books I read this month were all audiobooks I listened to while working on my NetGalley TBR.

Best of all, I posted a few of my favorite posts I’ve ever done in my short blogging career.  Hopefully I have not just jinxed my December…
