Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers

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


This week’s theme is books with covers that remind you of fall/autumn. I had a lot of fun looking through books trying to find books that remind me of Fall. So things that remind me of Fall are colors like red, orange, yellow and thing like leaves, pumpkins, and the theme of “creepy”. So using those concepts I picked 10 books I want to read.

 


Did you participate in Top Ten Tuesday? I would love to know what books remind you of Autumn!

Weekly Wrap-up Oct. 7th

Weekly

Hi guys! Its been quite awhile since I’ve done a weekly wrap-up. This is one of my favorite things to post.

This week in my life was really eventful. At the beginning of the week we finally finished my grandma’s porch ( the one that collapsed months ago) and set it up all nice and made half of it a play room for my sister and the other half as storage and it it so amazing to have the house back instead of storing all of her holiday things everywhere. Besides the porch it was my turn to work the weekend at work which happened  to be super busy and I’m exhausted!

Also at the beginning of the month I joined in with blog ahead for October and sadly I haven’t planned any posts for that since all the posts have to go up after October. However I am  actually ahead and have all of this monthly posts planned out and should be able to work on some more posts to go up later as well!

On to the Books……

    

I read a total of 5 books totaling up to 1,356 pages!
I was totally surprised by this I did listen to Night of Cake & Puppets while I painted and carpeted my grandmother’s porch though so I was able to sneak in some extra “reading” time this week.

Next Week

On the blog I already have 3 blog posts ready to go and I’m so excited to not be scrambling to get something up!

On my immediate TBR I think I’m going to try to read these 2 books next and go from there.

Freebie Friday!

Freebie


WEecome back to another Freebie Friday.  I started this series a while back on  my blog and complely stopped when I realized buying more and more ebooks with out reading anything on my kindle was a crazy thing to do (go figure), So after a short hiatus (and many more ebooks read) I am back with some more Freebies! I’ve decided to do this biweekly instead of weekly because some weeks I don’t find many good freebies.

As always before buying a 1-clicking a book double check the price since it might no longer be free!

*Click on  the book cover to go to Amazon*

    

      


Did you pick up any freebies this week? I would love to know!

The Long overdue what I’ve been reading post

HI!

It’s been awhile since I’ve last updated you guys on what I’ve been reading so I thought I would share with you guys all the books I have read since The Reading Quest has ended if you’d like to see what I managed to read for the reading quest you can click here.

Since then I have managed to read 12 books!

Overall I m really happy with my reading I managed to read 1 classic on my Classic Club TBR and 2 books that have been on my kindle for years!

Pages: 2,784

I had a lot of fun just picking up books that were calling to me after trying to find and fit in books that “worked” for challenges. Its a lot of fun having my reading freedom back. By the time you are reading this I should be working on bringing back my weekly reading wrap ups which I really enjoy writing each week!

Favorites

  • Still Life with Strings has been on my TBR for years ever since I read some of the authors other work. I really love music themes as well as this authors writing I can’t wait to read more by this author!
  • Displacement is the first book by Lucy that I’ve read but she has been on my radar for quite a while I really loved her relationship with her grandparents and a lot of it reminded me about my my relationship with my grandparents. I have another of her books checked out from the library right know and I’m really excited to read it!

Blog Ahead October is here!

I’ve been thinking about participating in this blogging event for a really long time. I think it would be great to participate in because as you can see on my blog I haven’t been the best blogger lately. I love posting but some times ( a lot lately) life gets in the way. So having a little bit of a cushion and posts could really help my blog game.

Lately whenever I post a blog post I have just written it and that has made it hard to participate in this community the way I would love to. So the goal of Blog Ahead October is to write and plan ahead 30 posts that will go up after October. However since I don’t want my blog to be empty for the month of October I am also going to be posting through out the month I’m shooting for 2-3 posts a week. So I’m going to be hopefully working ahead as much as possible.

The Rules

Increase the number of blog posts you have pre-scheduled by 30 during the event.

On Oct 1 check your completed post total. Add 30.

Ex. Oct 1– 2 scheduled posts
Oct 31– 32 scheduled posts
Only post that will go live after Nov 1 and are completed count towards the challenge.

So my official goal is to plan ahead 30 posts since my completed posts is a big fat zero. I’m update my progress here though out the month!

Diverstiy Bingo 2017 Check in and Plans!

 

Hey Guys!
The end of the year is coming so its about time for me to actually look at my diversity bingo board and see what I have to accomplish.

Ok I have done so much better than I thought I would have but it looks like I still have 5 more challenges to go.  In this post I’m not going to go over the books I’ve read yet instead I’m going to try to sit down and think up some books I could possible read for the squares I haven’t crossed off yet.

I’m actually not surprised with the squares that I am left with beside the Hijabi Mc square. I thought I would of hit that one already this year but I guess not. The one that I thought I would of not hit yet it the anaphylactic allergy square but I found a book I actually wanted to read which kind of surprised me.

Anways… back to the problem at hand. What to read for the left over challenges.

some possibilities

West Asia Setting*

Contemporary World Arranged Marriage

Mc W/ Wheelchair

Hijabi MC (own voices)

Book Set in Central America+

* I found this awesome blog called Asian Ya were I found some awesome recs for all of asia and picked some interesting ones from the West Asia Setting for my list. Check it out!

+ I so far have only found one book set in Central America that appeals to me. If you have any suggestions I wold love to hear them!

Happy Reading
