Latest books added to my TBR 2

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about the latest additions to my bookshelf and I decided to interpret this as my ‘to-be-read’ bookshelf because well, it’s always growing so why not share parts of it from time to time? Maybe talking about the books I added to my TBR will help me rethink them and decide not to TBR some books after all… Or maybe not, since that didn’t happen at all, but oh well. Too many books to read is a good problem to have, right? Right?

So here are the latest books I added to my TBR and I am equally excited about each and every one of them!

My ode to audiobooks

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about the bookish discoveries we made in 2019. But instead of multiple bookish discoveries, I want to take this time to rave about THE BEST bookish discovery I made in 2019. It’s the discovery that single-handedly SAVED my reading life this year and I’m not even exaggerating. I’m talking about audiobooks.

My Top Ten Favorite Songs of 2019 {Something Different Sunday}

My Top Ten Favorite Songs of 2019

Post header background: Designed by Freepik

Hey everybody! Is it still ok to post 2019 lists? Because I just couldn’t – seriously COULD NOT – go a year without a top ten songs list. So even though it is already halfway through January and we should really be looking forward, let’s look back together one more time, because I have a need to talk about music!

In no particular order – because how could I? – and also just one song per artist – can’t have my list be almost exclusively Dreamcatcher and One OK Rock, now can I? – I present to you my top ten favorite songs of 2019!

Also, yes I know it’s Saturday and not Sunday, but I have something special planned for tomorrow, so for once we have a Something Different Sunday on a Saturday 😉

The One Where Everything Hurts — Druid Vices and a Vodka by Annette Marie {ARC Book Review}

Druid Vices and a Vodka by Annette MarieTitle: Druid Vices and a Vodka (The Guild Codex: Spellbound #6)
Author: Annette Marie
Publisher:
Dark Owl Fantasy
Release Date: January 3rd, 2020
Standalone/Series: Series
Genre: New Adult – Urban Fantasy

CHECK IT OUT ON GOODREADS

My rating in stars: 5 stars
My rating in words: New all-time favorite

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

I’ve said it before, but sometimes I’m a bad person. I cheated on my twelfth grade math final, I’ve run countless yellow lights, and I gossip about how hot my kickass best friends are. (Good thing my job as a guild bartender doesn’t require moral perfection.)

But there’s bad, and then there’s bad. And I’m not sure which applies to a certain dark druid/wanted criminal/reluctant friend of mine. His transgressions include black-magic dealings, kidnapping, and murder, and he’s about to add “revenge-fueled killing spree” to his resume—if I don’t stop him.

Should I stop him?

He and his nemesis are gearing up to tear each other apart, rogues and vultures are converging with their sights on the spoils, and the guilds that would normally stomp them into the ground are under attack. We’re on the brink of an all-out criminal turf war, and my time to decide is almost up.

Who’s the real bad guy … and do I dare stand in his way?

December 2019: The Month of Christmas Fluff and Re-Reads {Monthly Wrap Up}

December Wrap Up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my December wrap up!

Happy New Year! 2019’s been pretty weird reading and blogging wise for me. Readingwise because I made the switch to (mostly) audiobooks this year and bloggingwise because I felt like I was on hiatus most of the time… I’m trying to get back to normal in 2020, but first here’s what I’ve been up to in December.

November 2019: The Month of Dukes, Thieves, Queens and Mamamoo {Monthly Wrap Up}

November wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my November wrap up!

Technically, I’m still in semi-hiatus, which I did because I’m stressing for time and wanted to take the time to prep some posts in advance, even though we’re over a month in said hiatus and I’ve prepared zero posts…. oops. But this may not have been such a bad thing, because I’m itching to get back to blogging anyway so I’m sure I’ll get back to it soon enough! Especially since I have a blogoversary coming up in January so it would be weird not to celebrate 🙂 In the meantime though, here’s what I’ve been up to in November!

October 2019: The Month Of Hiatusses, Deja Vu & The Best Birthday Surprise {Monthly Wrap Up}

October wrap up

Hi everybody, and welcome to my October wrap up!

October’s been pretty weird, as I finally made the decision to take a semi-hiatus from blogging. I wanted to take this time to work ahead and prepare some posts so I can stress less about getting posts up in time. Alas, we’re 3 weeks further and I’ve prepared exactly 0 posts yet so oops… this hiatus may take a bit longer than expected…

In the meantime, though, read on to see what I’ve read, listened to and watched last month.
