THAT BOOK Project

Image
On Sunday, June 10, 2018 as I was scrolling down Instagram and I had an insane idea. I shared this idea with all of you, and the results left me speechless. 
I had originally wrote this as a document to send you, of course, I was not expecting so many of you to participate in this idea, I had to write it here because it's easier for you guys to access the information. 
Before I start, I should say thank you, so...Thank you so, so much for saying yes to this crazy and wild idea!
Like I mentioned prior to this post, THAT BOOK will be an Instagram account were people from all ages, religion, race, political parties, etc.… will share that one book that impacted them in some shape or form. This project will enrich lives and build communities through literacy. THAT BOOK will encourage individuals to share their appreciation and devotion for books, and of course, encourage their love for reading. Through this page books discussions will also be open.
You can participate more than once and t…

How to Keep Track of Your TBR pile

Image
There are so many ways in which we can organize ourselves when it comes to our TBR (to-be-read) pile. It all depends on your lifestyle. If you like really organized things or your have a busy lifestyle, maybe a bullet journal or agenda would do wonders for you, but if you just need somewhere to write down a small list of the books you are going to read, maybe a simple notebook will suffice.

Today I will talk about a couple options that you may attempt to apply for your reading endeavors. I personally use an agenda and calendar to schedule when, at what time, and where I'll read, etc... Sometimes I like to dabble in bullet journaling, but honestly, I just do it for the doodles--it is so much fun. 

Of course these area all suggestions, you can do whatever you want with these options. You can mix them all together, or maybe even create your own.

Here a some ways yo can keep track of your TBR pile

1- Agenda/Calendar 

Like I previously stated, I personally use agendas and calendars t…

MY JUNE TBR

Image
Ah, summer...after a crazy school year, I am finally enjoying my summer vacation away from work and all of the chaos--and annoying paperwork. I haven't had the time to fully enjoy my books. Whenever I had ten minutes of down time, I never could actually pick up a book and read at least a page or two. It was very difficult for me to cope with that. But, of course, when you grow up and have a full time job, and have to deal with paperwork, attempt to have some type of social life, eat healthy, and workout, when you finally want to read, your brain is going crazy and you're tired as hell. So I am really, and I a mean really looking forward two these two months off free time.

Of course, sometimes--like any other person that loves books--I end up not reading due to a 'reading slump' so, this summer I decided on a few techniques that have helped when I was working. And thanks to those techniques, I have managed to keep track of my TBR. (By the end of this post, I'll be …

It's Here! A Court of Frost and Starlight!

Hello, again, my fellow book lovers.

After some problems with my computer and wifi connection, I am finally back and extremely excited, if I might add! Why you ask? Well, simple...

IT'S MAY 1ST AND A COURT OF FROST AND STARLIGHT HAS BEEN FINALLY RELEASED *internal screeching*


All right, I came in late into this whole fandom. I discovered the series last year, and boy, am I thankful I did.

I am a big fan of book series that get me hooked. The type of book series that will leave me wanting for more and eventually make me regret the day that I started it because my life will be forever ruined... sure, I have a problem, but it's too late to change me. (sorry, mom)

The series begins when nine-teen year old huntress, Feyre Archeron, kills a wolf in the woods (not an ordinary wolf, if I might add,) then a beast-like creature arrives and demands retribution for it, and drags her to a magical land she has heard about only from legends. Of course, many, and I do many things occur, one …
