These Books Will Self-Destruct | 2021

These Books Will Self-Destruct | 2021

I’ve seen Booktubers do something like this, but I’m changing it. On this list, yes are books I’ve had on my TBR for a while, but additionally, these are all books I’ve picked up, started reading, then put down for one reason or another and never picked up again.

Sunday Post #80: Things be tense

Sunday Post #80: Things be tense

I can’t stop myself from watching the news, and then this helpless feeling comes over me. I live in the United States, in the state of Michigan. Our states, more and more feel like the Divided States, more than the United States. I remember in school learning, or at least being told, the founders totally…

Sunday Post #79: Basement update

Sunday Post #79: Basement update

We’ve been busy on the basement project. We almost have a new, to code, gas line in for the dryer – we ran into an unforseen issue with the previous pipe. I hung, all by myself, one sheet of drywall. (Very proud of myself for that since I don’t have a lot of experience hanging…

November Wrap Up & December TBR

November Wrap Up & December TBR

Well, as mentioned in this week’s Sunday Post, I haven’t finished a single book in November. I did listen to a few audiobooks, but they were books I’ve listened to at least a dozen times before and didn’t really pay attention to. I mostly used them for noise. For some reason, nothing really is calling…

Sunday Post #78: Worst Reading Slump

Sunday Post #77: NaNo FAIL…again.

Sunday Post #77: NaNo FAIL…again.

Hello! It’s been a while. I feel like I’m really bad at being consistent here. Okay, I don’t think there is any “feel like” about it; I’m bad at posting consistently here. My lack of posting consistently probably has something to do with why I am failing NaNoWriMo. I just can’t say no to people, and have too much to do myself. Combine this with the longest reading slump I’ve ever had, and we have a lack of posting. I’m hoping to change this sometime in the near future – that’s for both the reading slump and the lack of posting.

October Wrap Up & November TBR

October Wrap Up & November TBR

October was not a great month for me. I didn’t finish any of the books I was planning to read. Let’s hope November will be a bit better since I’m keeping the TBR a bit smaller due to NaNoWriMo.

I was going to kick TBRs to the curb because I can’t seem to stick to them lately. There are however, a few books I want to get in before November, when I am going to be absolutely crazy, (or maybe I am already) and have intentions of again attempting NaNoWriMo.
