Ranking My Favorite Romance Series on the Scoville Scale of Spiciness

This week, a friend of mine was asking what I was reading. I’ve been in reading rut all year almost and it’s been a little tough. However, usually I pick up romance books to get me back into the habit of reading after a slump. I explained to this friend that I rank books on a level of spiciness. From cool they love each other to whoa hopefully no one sees me reading these in public. I thought it would be fun to use the Scoville Scale (used to rank spicy peppers) to recommend some of my favorite romance series for the people looking to read only the best parts or avoid them like I do sometimes. (Hey! We all have our tastes in books!) Continue reading “Ranking My Favorite Romance Series on the Scoville Scale of Spiciness”

I Let My Instagram Followers Pick My TBR Stack

For a while, I’ve asked people in a book community I’m part of to pick what I’m reading next through emoji polls. It has been so much fun and sometimes a little out of control, but I haven’t done it in a while. I told a friend of mine I was thinking about asking my Instagram followers to pick my TBR books for September. I was told it was a bonkers idea so I decided to do it anyway. Everyone was way more responsive than I anticipated, but I . AM. SO. EXCITED!!!!!! Continue reading “I Let My Instagram Followers Pick My TBR Stack”

#BookishBloggersUnite – Influential Childhood Books

I’m back!

It’s been a hot minute (or two or three…) since I’ve written in this space or posted on my Instagram, but I’m officially back after a lengthy illness. Thanks to everyone who read or followed me while I was gone. I’m eager to talk about what I’ve been up to as well so expect a few posts over the next few weeks.

I’m happy to be back hosting #BookishBloggersUnite. This week is about influential childhood books/series. Due to my upbringing, I imagine mine will be nothing like anyone else’s, but here we go! Continue reading “#BookishBloggersUnite – Influential Childhood Books”

My April 2018 TBR Stack

I’ve been in a tiny reading slump lately. I’m still close to my monthly goal to hit my 2018 reading goal, but every week I get one book further away from my goal. It seems silly to make strict reading goals like that, but when you own as many books as I do, you’ve gotta work to get through them! Instead of feeling discourage, I decided to try and make a TBR stack. Continue reading “My April 2018 TBR Stack”
