Weekly Recap – Monthly Budgets for Books (May 21, 2017)

Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you’re all enjoying this weekend. I had a wonderful week and did have a great reading time. I hope you did too. I want to give an update on my reading progress. Do you have a monthly budget for books? I read mostly ebooks (kindle) these days. They are cheaper and easy to carry, but my one-click habit has been out of control these last few months. I have so many books I’ve purchased that I’m not sure I’ll manage to read. They’re just sitting on my kindle and waiting for my attention. As a slow reader who has limited time to read, I’m struggling to read more than two books a week. So I’m planning to limit my monthly budgets by choosing the books I’m really interested in reading. The books I list below are just some of MANY. I have so many books I want to mention but choose to focus on the ones I’m really planning on reading instead. Last week on the blog: I managed to read two books–Claim […]

Weekly Recap – NetGalley and Books I Received & Bought (May 14, 2017)

Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you are doing great and having a wonderful weekend. Last week was a good week for me. I made an account on NetGalley and got a book I requested. Thank you to all fellow book bloggers that have given me awesome advice about the site and how to use it. I’ve been extra careful when it comes to requesting books and only requested two books so far. I’m used to buying books based on recommendations from my trusted book bloggers and prefer that way. I do enjoy NetGalley but requesting books that weren’t recommended by book bloggers actually terrifies me. I’m afraid I’ll end up reading and reviewing the books I don’t like and getting burned out at the end because of it. I’m having a short trip to my hometown to visit my parents and sisters next week and so excited about it. As you know, my little sister is getting married in a few months so I’m going to help her with some stuff. I hope I still can read and blog […]

Weekly Recap – Happy Easter (April 16, 2017)

Hi, everyone. Happy Easter for those who celebrate! I’ve had a fantastic week, mostly because Easter was coming. I love celebrating Easter. I hope you have a great week, too. Anyway, thank you for all of your well-wishes for me last week. I am feeling great now. I hope you all are too. 😀 Last week on the blog: Not much happening last week. I didn’t post many but I did have a great reading time. I was spending time reading Sins Duet (Black Hearts & Dirty Souls) by Karina Halle. Although I didn’t love the series as much as I hoped, I did have a good time reading it. I’m planning to read more of romantic suspense books in the future. Do you have any recommendations? 😀 Just in case you haven’t read them yet, here are my recent book reviews: Book Review – Sins Duet (Black Hearts & Dirty Souls) by Karina Halle Book Review – The Opposite of You (Opposites Attract #1) by Rachel Higginson Book Review – Written In Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop Book […]

Weekly Recap – I didn’t feel well (April 9, 2017)

Hi, everyone. I hope everyone had a great week. I had a rough one. In fact, I was contemplating on whether I should write this post. I don’t have much to share, honestly. As some of you might have known, I did get sick two weeks ago and then I felt better a few days later. However, I got sick again last week and it affected my reading time. It was a huge bummer since I had planned to post three book reviews last week. I’m getting better now, though, so everything is ok. 😀 Another thing I want to share is that I’d decided to do a little change. As you know, I’d been devouring The Others series by Anne Bishop since two weeks ago and I’d loved and enjoyed it, but I decided to take a little break and started a new story in order to refresh myself. I’m planning to get back to the series in the next week. 😀 Last week on the blog: Monthly Recap – March Wrap-Up and April To-Be-Read List (April 1, 2017) […]

Weekly Recap – I Had a Very Busy But Productive Week (March 26, 2017)

Hi guys, how are you? I hope you all had a great week. I had a very busy but productive week, but my reading experience was not as good as I had hoped for. I managed to read and review two books but did not enjoy them as much as I would have loved. Last week on the blog: Weekly Recap – I am Suffering a Book-Hangover (March 19, 2017) Book Review – Shade’s Lady by Joanna Wylde – 3.5 stars Latest Book News – New Releases, Sales/Bargains, Pre-Orders (March 22, 2017) Book Review – Every Little Thing (Hart’s Boardwalk #2) by Samantha Young – 3.5 stars   What I am currently reading and will be reading this week (book haul): I am currently reading Written In Red by Anne Bishop and planning to read the rest of the books in the series this week. OMG, I am loving it. Yes, I know. I can’t believe I’ve just heard of this series recently. Maybe because I have mostly focused on contemporary romance these last two years. Since I started blogging, I’ve got […]

Weekly Recap – I am Suffering a Book-Hangover (March 19, 2017)

Hi guys, how are you? I hope you had a wonderful week. I had another great week. I’ve added several books recommended by my amazing fellow book bloggers and just read two of them. The news that I’m going to share is that I’m suffering a book-hangover. As you might have already known, I’ve just finished an awesome book (tearjerker), Cruel & Beautiful by A.M. Hargrove and Terri Laine, and OMG guys, I can’t move on. I’ve tried to start a new book but I couldn’t concentrate. Have you ever experienced a book-hangover before? Do you have any suggestions on how to move on? 😉 Last Week on The Blog: Favorite Series – Venom Series By Shanora Williams – My new favorite series. Dark romance alert! Awesome.

Weekly Recap – Last Week Could Not Have Been Better (March 12, 2017)

Hi, thank you for stopping by. Welcome back to my weekly recap. I hope everyone had an awesome week. I did have a great week since all the books I read were awesome. Seriously, I couldn’t have asked for a better week. Everything in my real life was going great as well. I decide to be more selective on what I’m going to read and the best way I’ve learned so far was to ask my fellow book bloggers which books they recommend the most, instead of going blindly. I love experiencing “try and error” but when it comes to reading I want to enjoy every single book I read. Last Week On The Blog I read a fantastic New Adult Romance that I couldn’t put down and a very addictive Dark Romance Series. I highly recommend these books. 😀 Favorite Series – The Renegades Series By Rebecca Yarros Book Review – Nova (The Renegades #2) By Rebecca Yarros Book Review – Passion & Venom (Venom #1) By Shanora Williams Book Review – Venom & Ecstasy (Venom #2) By Shanora […]

Weekly Recap – Last Week and February (March 5, 2017)

I didn’t have a great reading time last week. All of the books I’ve read and reviewed were way below my expectations. None of them really interested me, but I’m glad, at least, I managed to try new authors. My goal is to review at least three books a week and so far I’ve succeeded. Yay, so proud of it. I’m planning to join reading challenges this month, to motivate me to read more and engage with fellow book bloggers. What I read in February Besides the recap of last week’s reading activities, I want to share my February recap as well. In February I managed to review 12 books. 😀 Book Review – Preston’s Honor by Mia Sheridan – 3.5 stars Book Review – Don’t Speak (A Modern Fairytale) By Katy Regnery – 3 stars Book Review – Debt By Nina G. Jones – 5 stars!
