Favorite genres are Fantasy and Historical Fiction but I have been known to read just about anything.

I haven‘t been wanting to read much lately so since it is my day off I‘m hoping to get to page 200.

Black Friday book haul. Can‘t wait to dive in. Any suggestions for where to start?

Ok. I‘ve been seriously thinking about making a bookstagram page but I‘ve been really bad at posting anywhere regularly and even worse here. So what I‘m going to do instead is post here more regularly and see how things go. Anyway...here is my currently reading pile. Hoping to get them all read but A Storm of Swords is the one to move into 2020 if not.

November TBR

I decided to post a TBR this month since I‘ll be participating in 4 different read-a-thons.

First up is Autumn Cozy reading night tonight. Then we have the Triwizard Tournament Task One and Round 9 of Tome Topple. And finally we have Nonfiction November for the whole month.

Best line so far.

My pick for the Exemplary Badge in the round one catchup for the #Bookemon read-a-thon. I found it just ok. Not a bad read but not one I plan to pick up again.

Read this for the prose badge in the round one catchup of the bookemon read-a-thon. So that gives me 3 of the 12 badges. I also only need 2 more books to hit my Goodreads goal.

Completed my first book for the #bookemon round one catchup. All-American Girl by Meg Cabot gives me the Amour Badge which was to read a romance/contemporary.

Not a bad read but not my thing anymore. It was just ok. My younger self would have like it a lot though.

For someone who has always been a mood reader I can‘t seem to get enough of setting read-a-thon TBRs this year.... playing catch-up this month and doing the Bookemon Badge-a-thon in preparation for catch-a-thon in November.

My partner and I finished this last night and jumped right into book 2 in the series. We both thoroughly enjoyed this one. Lycanthropes, vampires, zombies, could you ask for anything better?

Marilyncjackson Oh just a warning these get really heavy on the erotica after the Obsidian Butterfly. I loved this series but haven‘t followed it in a couple of years. I think it is a great series but when I hear people are reading it I like to give the warning that wasn‘t there when I starred reading these in High school. Who is your favorite character? 2mo
BacklistReader That‘s a great warning. My partner has read a lot of them already and did say that was why he stopped reading them. As of this moment I think my favorite character would be Jean Claude. I do like that Anita is portrayed as a strong female that can take care of herself though. 2mo

I‘m at the halfway point here and my partner and I are about 90% through Guilty Pleasures. Feeling pretty confident that both books can be completed this weekend. Especially with it being a #24b4monday weekend

Finish it with a few hours left to spare.

For me this was hard hitting.
It was also very easy to read and understand even if you don‘t know lots of psychology.
If you need/want a place to start in helping yourself grow into a better adult I would absolutely pick this one up.

Progress on my #NEWTs has stalled a bit.....but I am enjoying this one and when I do sit down to read it goes pretty quick.

At 120 pages in the only issue I have right now is that we switch between formal and informal names at an alarming rate (feels like it‘s about every other paragraph or more). Anyone else notice that?
