Wilder Girls and ~Spooky Season~

T-minus 10 days until Halloween, and autumn has finally hit Georgia after 90-degree days stretching long into October. While I’ve been enjoying piling blankets on my bed and watching reruns of Over the Garden Wall, there’s nothing quite like a good spooky book to get into the true Spooky Spirit.

Wilder Girls by Rory Power was that book for me. My librarian friend recommended it to me — I was lamenting about needing a good fall book, and she went here. This one. I don’t know what I just read but you need to, too.

Book Review: Meet the Sky by McCall Hoyle

So… it’s taken me a little while to get my thoughts together on this book, because it’s… quite something. I’m still not sure whether that something is good or bad, but it’s definitely something.

Let’s start with the summary:

NaNoWriMo Update and a Band Camp Summary

I…. I hit 38,000 words today for NaNoWriMo. That’s… wild. Not only does it mean I won, but I topped my goal by an additional 3,000 words. That’s not something I thought I would ever be able to do. Usually I’m lucky to write 3,000 words a month.

Camp NaNoWriMo 2018 and a Little Classic Existentialism.

So, somehow, June disappeared and now we’re over halfway through July. Summer holiday is starting to draw to a close, and I! Am! Not! Ready! At all! I’ve read over thirty books since school got out, learned to drive, binge-watched Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and made enough sweets to kill a moose. I’ve slept in and stayed up all night and’ve just lived, gloriously, beautifully. I’m so not ready to give that up for tests and the inevitable-crushing-stress of high school. 

And yet…. The end is nigh. There’s no way to avoid it. School is coming, guard season has started (RIP my pale self and the thousand-degree days), but… 

It’s Camp NaNoWriMo…?

And… I… I might actually hit my goal???

Top Ten Favorite Book Series!

I’m under the distinct impression that there’s no way to get to know someone better than learning their favorite book series – thus, this post!

Now, being a huge book lover, it’s also incredibly hard to put these in order, as there are pieces of each I love so much, but I’m giving it a go.

June TBR List!

It’s summer! No school, no color guard (yet), and nothing to stop me from reading a lot of books.

Now, I’m one of those people that has a rather hefty to-be-read pile sitting on the floor by my bookshelves. Don’t worry – they’re not scattered about the floor or in danger of being stepped on, but instead are stacked neatly by the little chair I have wedged in the corner of my room. However, it’s gotten pretty large over the past few years, and instead of simply reading all of my new books, I keep buying new ones, and re-reading books I love. Not a bad thing, necessarily, but I can’t help but feel bad every time I glance at it.

Thus, I have devised a plan, as many great readers have before me: A TBR List from books off my stack!

Book Haul!

Used book stores are dangerous.

Not only are there fabulous books, but they’re at a discounted price.

That’s… too much power. Unfortunately for my book money, it doesn’t stop me from visiting them. Fortunately, I can count the number of books I got on one hand.

This book store had a wonderful mix of used and new books, which led me to find several great books…
