Top 5 Wednesday: Authors You Want to Read More From

Hi guys,

I’d like to welcome you to my first top 5 Wednesday post. Now, Top 5 Wednesday is a tag that I love following on Youtube. It was created by Lainey of GingerReadsLainey and is currently being moderated by Sam from ThoughtsonTomes.

This week’s topic for Top 5 Wednesday is Authors You Want to Read More From, now this can be authors you’ve just read one book from or a few books from. The only rule is that you have to want to read more by them.

So without further adieu, let’s get into it:

Author 1: Jennifer L. Armentrout

I know I’ve been talking about her a lot recently but I was only recently introduced to her work. I think it was JBookLover that made me really want to check her out due to her love of the Lux series. It was something that I’d heard mentioned a few times around youtube but it wasn’t until she mentioned it and talked about how much she loved and enjoyed it that I finally decided to give it a chance. Of course, I devoured the first two books within a day and a half and I immediately needed more. I have since gone on to read a portion of book three and all of White Hot Kiss which is the first book in the Dark Elements series and already, I just need more from her. I just need it, kay?

Author 2: Jaye Wells

Jaye Wells is an urban fantasy/paranormal romance author and to my knowledge, she has written three series in total. I read and loved her first series the Sabina Kane series. It centered around a half vampire half witch protagonist, her mage love interest and her demon companion who turns into a hairless cat whenever she tells him to. The book was quite honestly, hilarious and did not manage to get slow at all until around book 5 which was actually the last in the series. I haven’t managed to read any of her other series yet but I really, really want to.

Author 3: Lish McBride

Oh my God you guys, Lish McBride is amazing. Trust me, if you haven’t read a thing by her please go rectify that now because she is the wit queen. I’ve only read 1 1/2 books by her (Firebug and 1/2 of Pyromantic) but words cannot even begin to describe my love for these books. They’re just so darn clever and unique and feature a full cast of amazingly interesting characters. There’s romance, elemental magic, general badassery and so much more. Also, romance while definitely in this book is nowhere near the main theme of it. No, that’d be friendship and guys, do I even need to explain how great that is for me as a reader? Being able to read a book where romance takes a backseat to friendship/familial themes is just such a breath of fresh air. And I just need more of her writing. Honestly, I need it so bad I’m planning on picking up Hold Me Closer Necromancer just as soon as I’m done with Pyromantic.

Author 4: C.J. Redwine

I sort of feel like I’m cheating listing her because I haven’t actually read any of her work yet. I mean sure I’ve read the beautiful excerpts she posts on her facebook page and trust me, they are gorgeously written. I just haven’t managed to read any of her books yet but I need to. God, I need to.

Author 5: Fannie Flagg

I read Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe for the very first time when I was around 18 years old. I have since gone on to read it approximately 10 more times. If I had to pick a favorite book of all time Fried Green Tomatoes would be it. There’s just something about the town and all of its numerous quirky characters that is just soothing to me and while I haven’t read any of her other books I do want to.

Well that’s it guys, my very first top 5 wednesday post. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I liked writing it.

Book Review: White Hot Kiss

Howdy guys!

I’m here to tell you all that I finally managed to finish a book. I know, it’s crazy but it’s true. I did it! Now, let’s talk about the book that actually managed to grab my attention and keep it.

white hot

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the first book in the Dark Elements trilogy (or is it a series?) It focuses on the main character, Layla who is the only half-demon half-gargoyle in existence which is honestly one of the first things outside of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s name that got me interested in the book.

Now like I said, Layla is a half-demon half-gargoyle and she was raised by the Wardens who are gargoyles sent to protect the human race from demons aka the other half of her reason for existing.

giphy.gif

Now I found Layla to be an extremely relatable character. She’s a 17-year-old girl who doesn’t pretend to be something she isn’t and is simply trying to get by while also trying to figure herself out. It also doesn’t hurt that she’s got two really hot potential love interests.

And did I mention that this happens to be a love triangle that I had no trouble getting into?

kR0S22SGVDm4o

Roth and Zayne are two guys that both bring something very significant to the table when it comes to Layla’s life. Roth is a demon while Zayne is a gargoyle. Roth can kiss her while Zayne cannot without the risk of her sucking out his soul.

Sucks right?

Normally I can pick a side between love interests and stick to it but in this case, I really couldn’t pick one. I enjoy both Roth and Zayne for completely different reasons although I have to say if I wasn’t married I’d want a Roth of my own.

Now, White Hot Kiss may be a trashy YA novel but it’s also more than that. It’s well written, relatable, drops you right in on the action and is just so friggin addicting I can’t.

So if you have already read this book please feel free to tell me what you thought of it and if you haven’t well, what are you even doing with your life?

25 Bookish Facts About Me

 

Hello guys and welcome to the 25 bookish facts about me tag. Is this a tag? I’m not sure, I’ve just seen it floating around youtube a whole lot and figured why not do it for myself?

Now let’s get to some facts!

  1. I start more books than I finish.  Now, this is a fairly no occurrence. Actually, no it’s not, who am I even kidding? I’m a book starter. I’ll start and get into around 10 or so books and oncer and then either slowly finish all of them or finish the ones I’m interested in and then leave the others lying about unfinished due to boredom, forgetfulness or some other reason.

shrug-house

2. I have commitment issues when it comes to books. This also applies to television shows but mostly applies to book series that I feel invested in but for some reason just can’t seem to commit to for the life of me. For example, I started reading the Grisha trilogy a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed the first book. Went a few months thinking about but generally avoiding the second book until I had a long wait at a dentist appointment and figured why not? So I finished it then, in a matter of hours because I wasn’t distracted by kids or life or whatever and obviously I enjoyed that book too. But have I started the third book in the series? Nope.

3. I am obsessed with bookmarks. Who isn’t though? They’re these adorable/beautiful things designed to go in your books and nothing else. I love them- I just don’t use them all nearly as much as I should.

4. Audiobooks. I just can’t seem to get into them. Now I don’t know if it’s me or audiobooks in general but I just have no desire to read them. They’re ok and mega convenient at times but I either feel like I have no time for them or would just rather read the e-book or physical copy.

5. E-books help me be lazy. I think this is something that might be true for a lot of people but I just find e-books so much easier to read than a physical book. With two kids it can be hard to find time to hold this sometimes hulking book and not have it end up damaged in some way, shape or form. My kids can’t damage my e-books because- we’ll they could but thankfully they haven’t seemed to find a way just yet.

6. I used to dog-ear books. This is a thing that I cannot do anymore but I did use to do it quite often. I didn’t have a lot of bookmarks back in the day and didn’t have the respect for the pristine condition of books that I do now.

7. I hate eating while reading. Just can’t do it. Food while reading is a big no-no for me.

8. However, I do love drinking tea while reading. Tea is my lifeblood. It’s this calming soothing thing that you can take almost anywhere and sometimes it just emphasizes the reading experience. Tea is life. 

tumblr_o8mapwlDi31rlpicfo1_500

9. Love triangles tend to bother me. Now I won’t quit the book if there is a love triangle but for the most part, they annoy me. I just don’t find them all that necessary in my reading, especially when it is insanely obvious who the main character is going to choose. I also hate feeling bad for the other guy.

10. Badly written sex scenes do not break a book for me. If the story is good outside of the sex scenes then I simply skim past them to the rest of the story. Now, if the main character seems to be having sex every three pages, that tends to be when I quit.

11. YA fantasy tends to be my go-to genre. I don’t know what it is about YA fantasy that draws me in but it’s usually the first thing I go for. Could be the fact that the stories tend to be nothing at all similar to how my life is or was or it could just be that I loved LOTR as a kid.

12. I am not all that into adult fantasy or sci-fi. I do want to be though. I just find it a bit harder to find these sort of books on my own and even when I do, I’m not all that sure where to start. (Am totally open to suggestions on any btw.)

13. I wrote a book when I was 6 or 7. It was a children’s book about two kids who buy this lonely blue dog. It was illustrated and everything. My aunt thought it was good and that I should publish it but I have no idea where it could be anymore. For shame.

HDY5hPw

14. While I haven’t read much adult fantasy or sci-fi I did use to mainly read paranormal romance. Now don’t ask me why I read that for the most part because I honestly couldn’t tell you but it was my go-to for awhile there. My sister-in-law introduced me to it while we were at the library one day and I found two series that sounded interesting, ended up loving them and the rest is history. I did stop reading them for a bit though and am currently trying to get back into it since my favorite half priced bookstore has a whole lot of them in stock.

15. I own all of the Royal Diaries book series. Anyone remember those? They were these awesome middle-grade fiction stories told from the perspective of princesses (some well known and some not so much) that were told in a diary format? I loved them so much as a kid and still do tbh.

royal diaries

16. In the vein of the Royal Diaries fact- I also collect both the Dear America and Dear Canada book series. Dear America books aren’t all that hard to find and a lot of the time they end up being about 4 dollars total on Amazon. The Dear Canada books are a bit harder for me to get my hands on at times because they weren’t actually sold here but I have a deep love and respect for both series as they helped me so much when it came to discovering my passion for history, getting alternative perspectives, and tbh they helped make test taking a whole lot easier by putting what I needed to be studying about in a way that I wanted to read.

17. Artemis Fowl is my favorite book series of all time. I love that series so much. It was there for me whenever I was going through something difficult, had a main character who made an exponential amount of growth throughout the series and was just a quick fun read with an amazing cast of characters. I’ve also re-read it numerous times.

18. I have never re-read the Harry Potter series. And I have no desire to. I know, I know- I’m horrible for saying that. Doesn’t make it any less true though.

19. I hate reading over-hyped books. I just can’t get past the fact that they are overhyped. If I hear about a book that everyone is reading and I wasn’t already reading it in the first place then I tend to avoid reading that book like the plague which is exactly why it took me so long to start reading the Twilight series.

20. I prefer vampires over werewolves. This is mostly when reading books. I think werewolves are awesome in shows, movies and even in books but I tend to lean more towards books about vampires than I do about werewolves or any kind of shifters. Witches will always be better though.

21. I don’t like watching or reading reviews for books before I read them. Even if the reviews happen to be spoiler free I tend to avoid the review until after I’ve finished the book because a bad review can really throw a person off a book, me especially.

22. I am just now starting to love trashy YA fiction. They’re quick, cute and super addicting. What’s not to love? Honestly, I’ve managed to finish a lot of the trashy YA books I start within a couple of days or less. Except for The Selection series. I’m looking at you, America Singer.

23. I don’t get the hype on J.K. Rowling. I. Just. Don’t. Get. It. I mean why is she known as God-Queen Rowling? Sure, she wrote the Harry Potter series but there are a lot of things wrong with them. I mean, name an LGBT character in that series outside of Dumbledore that J.K. has actually declared as LGBT. I’m waiting.

24. Lord of the Rings will always have a soft spot in my heart. It got me through a really difficult part of my life and for that, I will always love it. Don’t care what anyone says about it.

25. I might be out of my reading slump. Yep, you heard that right. I finished a book today, which I will try to review later.

Well that’s it for the 25 bookish facts about me tag. I hope you enjoyed them.

Until next time,

Amber

The Book Snacks Tag!

Hello saucy people,

I’m back at it again with another tag as I’m still in a fairly slumpy reading mood and can’t seem to work my way out of it just yet (I blame college and a short attention span) but here goes nothing!

What is your favorite snack while reading?

gum

Is it weird to consider gum a snack? I mean it isn’t a meal so it should be a snack right? I like it because it doesn’t involve using my hands which obviously need to be all over whatever I happen to be reading at the time.

What is your least favorite snack to eat while reading?

hot fries.png

As much as I adore hot fries and trust me I do, I just can’t stand eating them while reading. Too much mess involved and I do not want reddish smudges on any of my books. I’m not thirteen anymore.

Wine or soda?

tea

Tea. Always. You see, tea and me have a thing going on. It’s pretty serious.

Coffee or tea?

e6df24ab94fb8a282eea97f4d5986890

Hello, were you not listening before? Tea and I are seriously involved, seriously.

Crumbly or creamy?

Hmm well, I actually don’t have an answer for this one… I’m going to end up thinking about it, dreaming about it. Look what you’ve done book tag, you’ve given me nightmares.

Would you rather have sauce spill on your e-reader, or get crumbs on your books?

God, is it bad that both scenarios make me cringe? I mean sure, crumbs are easier to clean but it’s crumbs touching my books and then it’s sauce touching me e-reader and neither of them are supposed to be doing any of that. -shudders-

What do you read when you don’t know what you want to read, & what do you eat when you don’t know what you want to eat?

a1ilwNV3iGVJ6

When it comes to not knowing what to read I usually skim read some of the books I have on my e-reader. You know, just read tidbits of different things until I find something that catches my interest. As for food well- is it bad to say that I don’t eat until I know what I want? I mean- if I don’t know what I want to eat am I really hungry or do I just secretly want water?

What’s your favorite cookbook?

cheesecake

I don’t really have a favorite cookbook but if it has cheesecake recipes inside it then I’m all for it.

What’s your favorite book written by a chef?

I don’t actually have one but I do really want to read books by Anthony Bourdain and Guy Fieri.

You’re on a deserted (tropical) island. Would you rather have food or a book?

A book. Could it be a magic book though? One that guides me through life on this deserted island and makes sure I don’t die by some weirdly idiotic means? Cause you know, that’d be great.

Have you ever gotten into trouble for reading at the table during mealtimes?

No but I’m sure my husband wouldn’t enjoy it too much. Plus, I wouldn’t want to risk getting food on my books or kindle. -shudders again-

Would you rather eat, read, or both?

Both for sure. Just never at the same time.

Currently Reading!

Hello saucy ones,

I’m going to try something different today (and will probably make some sort of attempt to do it weekly or at the very least bi-weekly). You see, I’m still in a bit of a reading slump (a major one if I’m being honest) and what that means is that I’m currently listed as reading 15 books on goodreads and outside of a comic that took me way too long to finish, I haven’t finished anything (that I’m not embarrassed to mention) in quite some time now.

However, I do think that it might be fun to talk about some of the things that I’m currently reading to either get opinions of them or simply to get them off of my mind a bit (or is it on my mind a bit?)

Anyway, onto the books!

white hot

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Now this is my most current book that I’m currently reading if that makes any sense at all. It was on sale in the kindle store for around .99 cents and honestly, if I ever give a deal like that up I’m either deathly broke or dead.

But I have to say I’m sort of digging the book so far. I’ve only gotten to page 62 but that’s mostly because I really should have been working on my paper (still should be honestly) but since I’m a horrible student atm I kept creeping back to the thing and I have to say there aren’t any regrets so far. The main character is super relatable and the demon who I think might end up being her love interest is kind of great. Seriously, that phone drop though? When he just comes into class and drops her cell on her desk a la you left this last night? It was awesome. Couldn’t tell you why though.

pyromantic

Pyromantic by Lish McBride

Okay so, I really don’t know why I haven’t made better progress in this book. I mean I love it. I loved the first book in the series, Firebug and Lish McBride is super high on my autobuy list because of how much I loved Firebug alone and yet here I am still on page 60 something. Or did I get further than that because my goodreads says page 33 except I know that’s wrong. I haven’t been that bad with it.

Still, I am digging the book so far. Loving it really. The main character Ava is just amazing and so darn relatable I can’t even. Also, I think I may have a thing for Sid, the were-rabbit. Wouldn’t want to have babies with him though for pretty obvious reasons.

kings rising

King’s Rising by C.S. Pacat

Good Lord. Can we not talk about how I’m only 3% through this book? I have no idea what’s wrong with me because I love this series. I spent two hours tearing up over quotes from the first two books yesterday for crying out loud?

Why have I not finished it? It’s not like I don’t adore Damen because I do and if I didn’t want him to have a happy fairy tale-esk ending with Laurent I’d want him to have my babies. Wait, I’d want to have his babies. Yeah, that’s how it works. Argh, I’m so ashamed of myself.

opal

Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Again, this whole thing is attack of the slump striking hard. I loved the first two books. In fact, I loved them so much I read both of them in two days but I can’t seem to get very far in this one. It isn’t for lack of interest but it probably is for lack of trying. I just can’t seem to stay interested in any one thing lately.

Managed to get 34% done with this one though so it’s not nearly as shameful as my thing with King’s Rising.

the elite

The Elite by Kiera Cass

Yeah so, I’m only about 50ish pages into this one. I’m just not sure it’s my thing anymore which is weird because I loved the first book a lot. I devoured that thing in a matter of hours for crying out loud.

It’s not me America, it’s you.

ashala

The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina

I’m really not sure what happened with this book. It’s like one minute I was reading it and the next minute it was on my shelf just sitting there. Might go back to it one day soon, especially since it really wasn’t that bad. Plus, I need to find out what happened with that serpent god thing.

got

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Good lord I’ve been reading this thing for three years now. At least I think it’s been three years. And I’m almost done with it too (80%).

And last but certainly not least, the book that I’ve been reading almost as long as I’ve been reading A Game of Thrones:

twilight

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Swear I’ve been on page 235 for over a month now and before that I was on 215 for almost a year.

 

Well there you have it kids, a peek at my very shameful currently reading list.

Hopefully next time we chat I’ll have finished at least one of them.

 

 

 

Spring Flowers Book Tag

Spring is here saucy people. It has sprung!

Honestly, I have never been more excited about warm weather in my life but after the weirdly cold early March that had decided to make its home in Virginia, I am super thankful for the warm April we’ve had so far and am looking forward (surprisingly) to an even warmer May.

Anyhoo, onto the tag. This tag was something I just recently found as I was stalking Zeezee with Books‘s blog and to be completely honest I thought it’d be fun to do so I’m doing it. Also, the tag was created by Chantal at Dreaming of Ink and Paper.

Now here goes nothing,

daffodil

Daffodil

A book about unrequited love

city of bones

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

God, this book, this book and the next one are so full of unrequited love it’s actually a bit sad. I mean, I personally have felt for Simon a lot while reading and I’ve only devoured (yes, devoured) two of the books so far. Let’s just say if the friend zone were a real thing our boy Simon would be in it for life. At least, until he managed to get over her…

foxglove

Foxglove

A book you pretended to like

my lady jane

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

I tried to love this book. For a while there I thought I liked this book. Turns out I actually secretly hated it but tell that to my brain that is still finding ways to defend it in conversation. Oh brain, you should know it’s a lost cause.

lilac

Lilac

A book about a first love

obsidian

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Now I’m not sure if this actually qualifies as first love since we sort of go into the book not really knowing if either the main character or the love interest have had other relationships prior to this book. However, this book is literally one of the first things I think about when it comes to trashy first love books. The romance alone is just great. Swoony too.

hyacinth

Hyacinth

A book with a sad ending

dont die my love

Don’t Die My Love by Lurlene McDaniel

Spoiler? He dies and I bawled like a newborn. I mean bawled. It was nowhere near pretty. Another spoiler? A significant portion of Lurlene McDaniel books have made me cry like a baby. I think it’s her gift.

peony

Peony

A book that made you feel embarrassed

dashing through the snow

Dashing Through the Snow by M. Leighton

I mean do I need to explain my embarrassment? Do I need to?

 

tulip

Tulip

A book with the most beautiful declaration of love

princes gambit

Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat

“Laurent said, ‘I didn’t think anyone was good enough to get past your guard.’ ‘One person,’ said Damen.”

“I think if I gave you my heart, you would treat it tenderly.”

Alright guys, I’m going to gush now. Prince’s Gambit is the second book in the Captive Prince series and my God is it amazing. The two lines that I mentioned above are both quotes from Damen said upon realizing that he may be falling in love with Laurent who if you didn’t know is the Prince he was given to when he was taken captive aka his supposed mortal enemy and guys, their love is swoony as all get out okay? I’m not ashamed to have said that.

crocus

Crocus

A book that made you laugh out loud

pyromantic

Pyromantic by Lish McBride

Now I haven’t gotten too far into it but I’m diggin’ the sass so far. Also, those chapter titles; gold.

pansy

Pansy

A book that challenged you to think about an important or heavy subject

forgive me leonard peacock

Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick

This book made me feel uncomfortable. It dealt with issues that I do not like to think about and while the ending pissed me off to no end- I have to say that the book handled exactly what it was trying to tackle in a very well written and thought provoking way.

daisy

Daisy

A book about a strong female friendship

three dark crowns

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

I swear the friendship between Arsinoe and Jules was what kept me going while reading this book half the time. Their loyalty to each other knows no bounds and I’m for it.

Welp, that’s it. Not going to tag anyone specific since I don’t really know anyone right now but if you see this and you feel like doing it, feel free.

Amber

The Goodreads Book Tag!

Hey saucy people!

It’s time for another book tag. Now I’ve heard that this one is an oldie but a goodie but since I’m still very new to blogging this tag is incredibly new to me. Anyways, here goes nothing!

What was the last book that you marked as read?

the rest of us just live here

Okay, so I’m cheating a little because technically this book isn’t the last book I marked as read on goodreads but since I’d really rather not talk or think about that book we’re just going to pretend that travesty never happened. Anyway, I managed to read The Rest of Us Just Live Here in a day and I loved it so much. No regrets reading it at all.

What are you currently reading?

Goodness I actually have to think about this- Well my goodreads page says that I’m currently reading 15 books and since my life is literal chaos I’m going to say I believe goodreads. So I’m just going to mention a few of them here:

pyromanticgotopal

Yeah I know, I’m horrible at finishing books and even worse at committing to them.

What was the last book that you marked as to read?

the drafter

I’ve been wanting to get back into adult literature recently and since I’m sort of a big fan of the Hollows series I figure why not try another series of Kim Harrison’s. Can’t go wrong trying what you know.

What book do you plan to read next?

Honestly I don’t have a clue. I’d like to finish Pyromantic by Lish McBride and maybe see where my mood takes me after that.

Do you use the star rating system?

Why yes, yes I do.

Are you doing a 2017 reading challenge?

Of friggen course I am. I don’t know what I’d do without the reading challenge honestly. It’s like that extra bit of motivation that makes me look at my books and say, “I need to read you all” instead of just staring at them because they’re pretty.

Do you have a wish-list?

You mean there are wish-lists that exist outside of amazon and thriftbooks.com? I had no idea.

What book do you plan to buy next?

fairyland

I need it. Need it now. Seriously, I’m so bummed that I have to wait until payday to buy the next volume in the series because the first one was just so good.

Do you have any favorite quotes? Would you like to share a few?

God, I love quotes. I mean they are seriously some of my favorite things. I have stickers all over the side of my bookshelves with a lot of my favorite fandom related things on them, including some of my favorite fandom or book quotes. They’re just so great you know? And great quotes sort of demand momentos.

“You were the sun, and I was crashing into you.”
Rainbow Rowell, Carry On
“The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot for ever fence it out.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
“Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.”
Patrick Ness, The Rest of Us Just Live Here
“You know, a heart can be broken, but it keeps on beating, just the same.”
Fannie Flagg, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Who are your favorite authors?
Now I’m not sure I have any real favorite authors but I do have authors that I enjoy enough to attempt to buy most things they’ve written. Some would include:
Lish McBride- I love her. Her characters are top notch and her writing style is fanfreakingtastic. I’ve only read Firebug so far (and parts of Pyromantic) but I’ve already bought Hold Me Closer Necromancer and am so pumped to read it.
J.R.R Tolkien- Okay so I adore him. The Lord of the Rings trilogy helped me get through so many things as an early teenager and I will forever be indebted to Mr. Tolkien. Sadly, I haven’t read the Hobbit yet but I plan on doing it very soon.
Kim Harrison- I loved the Hollows series or at least what I’ve read of it so far. It’s fun, super easy to get into and has one of my favorite ensemble casts ever. Seriously if Ivy or Jenks ever gets a spinoff series, I’d be there for it.
Fannie Flagg- Now I’ve only read Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe but I fell in love with it. So deeply in love that I’ve read it over 8 times total. It’s one of those comfort books that instantly makes me feel better whenever I read it.
Have you joined any groups?
Actually yeah, I’ve joined a few groups but the one I’m the most active in is YA Buddy Readers Corner. It has these really amazing monthly challenges that help motivate me to read even more than the yearly challenge would.
How many shelves do you have on Goodreads?
Maybe just 5? I’ve never actually counted…
Well that’s it for this tag. If you’ve never done it before feel free and if you have well I hope you’ve enjoyed mine.
Amber

Greetings

Greetings saucy people,

I bet you are wondering who I am- if anyone is actually reading this that is. Well, it’s actually pretty simple; the name’s Amber- hello. Now, I’ve tried this blogging thing a few times but have never managed to actually stick to it but I’m going to try sticking to it this go around and I’m going to do that for a couple of very specific reasons-

Reason number one is that I lost a very good friend a few months back (almost 3 now and yes, I’ve been counting; sort of hard not to). She was an amazing person, always there when you needed someone to talk to and as morbid as it may or may not sound one of my reasons for making this blog is so that I have a way to talk to her about books, television shows and other things that I might have talked about with her that I just can’t do anymore without spamming her facebook page (something that I still plan on doing, just not daily).

Reason number two is that I have a lot of opinions and I mean a lot of them. I also tend to have quite a few obsessions and I just think that blogging would be a better outlet for me as opposed to a youtube channel (mostly because I hate the sound of my own voice).

Anyways, I plan on blogging fairly regularly, probably not every day of the week since I have kids and school to deal with but still, regularly and I have to say, I’m excited to go on this journey with all of you or with any of you.

Until next time,

Amber
