Scallywag A Thon TBR

What's better than pirates? Space pirates. And what's better than space pirates? Clearly Scallywag A Thon, a pirate themed readathon that is based on space pirates this year.

I just found out about it last week, but Scallywag A Thon starts tomorrow and runs May 5-12. There are multiple paths to take along the map to find where X marks the treasure. In order to make it to the X, there are at least four challenges to complete. You can check out the map here if you are interested in joining me in this quest!


This was my first readathon making a bullet journal spread for. I'm actually considering making a post about my starting to bullet journal, but I thought it was fun to create a spread for this readathon, despite my lackluster artistic abilities.




Fair warning, I do have problems sticking to a TBR, so this is likely to not end up being what I actually read during the readathon. I definitely have mood reading tendencies.

For my starting point, I chose the number two, Extrater…

Must Read Authors

I took last week of Top Ten Tuesday off because I honestly didn't know what to write, but now I'm back for another week!

This week's prompt is Auto Buy Authors. At first, I thought I didn't have any but once I consider the spirit of what "auto buy" is, making a list ended up being a lot easier than I had initially expected. For me, this is a list of authors that I will read any book of theirs that I find, even if I just request it from the library, or only buy if I find it at a used bookstore. All of these authors I love and will read just about anything I put out there. So let's get started!

Rick Riordan- The jokes about signing a blood contract for his books? This is me. Heck, I haven't read Magnus Chase yet and own all three books that are out so far despite still not picking it up. I'm currently rereading The Red Pyramid, and the mythology is so much fun.Margaret Peterson Haddix- The Missing is an amazing series, and I read all of the sequels t…

Childhood Favorite Series

It's time for another week of Top Ten Tuesday! This week's prompt was childhood favorites, and it was a really fun list to write as I walked back through memory lane. I was only able to narrow it down to eleven, but all of these are great books, especially for kids but also I know that I want to reread now. I read all of these in elementary school and would like to thank the public library that let me read so many of these great series. So let's get started!


Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan- Honestly, I cannot count how many times I actually managed to read this, especially the first time. I remember the first time I read The Battle of the Labyrinth on the way back from a trip from my dad, and I just love all of this honestly just so freaking much. I also feel incredibly bad for all of the Rick Riordan books that are on my tbr but I haven't gotten to yet. (particularly The Blood of Olympus and Magnus Chase)Oz by L. Frank Baum- My uncle gave his childhood …

2019 Releases DNF

I started reviewing eARCs through Netgalley at the end of last year, and I hate that I don't love all of them. There are so many out there that I do love (and I've requested way too many) that I just don't have the time or energy to read books that I'm not enjoying. I definitely want to give books a chance, but I'm not going to force myself to keep reading something that I don't like.

That being said, I understand that sometimes what I dislike about a book may make others want to read the book all the more. Thus far in 2019, there have been 3 ARCs that I ultimately decided to dnf. Here are my reviews, so you can decide for yourself if this recent release is something that should go on your tbr.

Castle of Lies by Kiersi Burkhart

I tried so hard to like and finish this book, but I just couldn't. The pov voices sound like the same, narration is far too repetitive. I kept on giving this book chances but nothing was able to entice me to keep reading. I hate leavi…

Summer 2019 TBR

It's another week of Top Ten Tuesday! This week's prompt is the top ten books for your summer tbr. ISpring Wrap Up, which I based off of my spring tbr, I only read one out of the ten books that I thought I was going to read, despite managing to finish a ton of books in the spring.
just did my

So far, my summer reading has gone alright, though nowhere near as much as my dream goal was. Still, I have managed to read some pretty great books and hope that the rest of the summer is able to go as smoothly. Classes start August 26, so I do hope to read as much as possible before then, because it is always hard to tell what a change will have in store for reading and blogging.

Let's get started! Will I read all of these books this summer? Probably not! Seriously though, I do hope I do because I either really need to read the book soon thanks to library check outs and all of these are books that I'm excited about and hope are going to be as good as I think they are.

Spring 2019 Wrap Up

Back in March, I posted my Spring 2019 TBR here. So much has managed to occur in such a short amount of time. I did not read all the books that I said I was going to read, at all. In fact, of the ten books on that list, I only read one: A Study in Charlotte.

To make things even odder, I read that book the day after I wrote the tbr post and then again in May because I forgot important details when trying to read The Last of August. It's a little disappointing though because I was really excited about reading some of those books and just was unable to finally be able to get to any of them. Still, at some point I'll read them. I just have so many books that I want to read and there just is not enough time for me to actually get this all read.

I'm out of school now, which should make finding time to post on this blog easier. However, it has proved more difficult than I had initially hoped. Sure, I managed to read through finals, but back home proves to be harder than I had ini…

Anticipated Releases

Welcome back to another week of Top Ten Tuesday!

This one was surprisingly hard for me, maybe because I'm not really in the middle of any great series right now and all of the authors I read a lot aren't releasing this fall. I did include multiple books that I already got from Netgalley but they have not yet come out and I am behind but I still want to read them because I'm excited about their potential and hope that they are as amazing as I wish.

So let's get started!

Of Ice and Shadows by Audrey Coulthurst- Mare and Denna are an amazing sapphic couple. I loved Of Ice and Shadows, and I absolutely cannot wait to read the sequel, but I have to. I am really excited for this book.Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan- I got my sister the first book for Christmas and still haven't read it, but this is another amazing sapphic series that I need to read. My sister loved the first book and this is likely to be her Christmas present.Wilder Girls by Rory Power- I have…
