Bout of Books 13


I've decided to participate in the Bout of Books Read-a-thon again this year. I most likely won't be able to delve in quite like I have in the past but I find read-a-thons to be the best motivation to power through books and I am way behind on my reading goals this year. I still have no time to read (the woes of being a new mother) but I try to fit in a few chapters in the middle of the night during feedings. I'm already losing the sleep. I might as well read! 

Want to join in?

Here's a blurb from the official page:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

MY GOALS: 

I'm not going to set a certain amount of books or pages for myself this time and I'm not sure what I will be reading yet either. I will update soon.

April 2015 Wrap Up



April 2015

April was a busy month for me! We 'stay-cationed', we visited family, my nephew was born, we celebrated Earth Day, and somehow I managed to get some reading done! Ok, it was all in the middle of the night and mostly because I've been taking advantage of my library's digital lending library but I feel a little accomplished this month! I read more than just a few children's books! Woo hoo!

BOOKS I READ

Top Ten Tuesday #53


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten All Time Favorite Authors


Neil Gaiman

I love his unique storytelling style and am always excited to read his books.

J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter will always be a big part of my life and I love her for it.  I've yet to read any of her adult novels but I definitely plan to.

Anne Rice

It's been a while since I've read anything of hers but I loved The Vampire Chronicles as a young adult.

J.R.R. Tolkien

I'll always love the fantasy world that he created.

Maggie Stiefvater

I mostly love how quirky and fun she is. She's an artist, musician, and a lover of muscle cars. This woman has so much talent!

Patricia A. McKillip

I read one of her books several years ago and then read everything else of her's that I could get my hands on. I'm still trying to find some of her earlier works.

R.A. Salvatore

I kind of LOVE his Forgotten Realms fantasy novels. His battle scenes are awesome and his characters are so memorable.

Stacking the Shelves #47


It's been a few months since I've had the time to get a STS up but it still won't be a very big one. I've mostly been getting picture books for my daughter but I did get a few things for myself.

My husband surprised me with 'A Dance With Dragons' and also bought 'The Lorax' for our daughter.
