It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #imwayr

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-5-43-21-pmAfter taking a few weeks off, I am back in action with the “It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading?” post.  I cannot believe how much I rely on this post to keep me on track and focused for the upcoming week!  Needless to say, I missed it!

In case you don’t know, It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly post to share what you recently finished reading, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan on reading this week.

It’s hosted by Kathryn at Bookdate.

Last week, I went through a bit of a reading slump!  Between wedding events, another move and work, I was pretty much running on empty and struggled to finish just about any book!  Luckily, I feel better than ever now and am excited to get some serious reading done this week!

Keep reading to see what I read last week, what I am reading now and what I plan on reading this upcoming week.

IT’S MONDAY! WHAT ARE YOU READING? #IMWAYR

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-5-43-21-pm

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly post to share what you recently finished reading, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan on reading this week.  I often see (and admire!) these posts; especially the ones done by my friend Amy at Novel Gossip.  So, I figured I would hop on the bandwagon!  It’s hosted by Kathryn at Bookdate.I have been a completely reading psychopath the last few weeks so let’s see how this goes…

I absolutely did not get as much reading finished over the last week as I would have liked to!  I have an unnatural amount of birthdays that happen in the last week of March (my fiance, my mother in law, my father in law and MY OWN birthday all happen in those last five days!), so I was a little distracted.  Let’s see how I did.

WHAT I READ LAST WEEK (MARCH 27TH TO APRIL 3RD):

Reviews Posted:

Before This Is Over by Amanda Hickie — I loved this one!  It was a realistic “apocalyptic” type thriller that I absorbed in one sitting.

Bleeding Heart— a #cjsreads pick!

The rest of these have upcoming reviews so stay tuned!

UP NEXT:

I didn’t get to all the books I wanted to last week so they will roll over into this week!  Hopefully, I’ll be able to get these finished!

 

Well, that’s my plan for the week!  What are you reading/planning on reading?

Feel free to follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Goodreads!

Happy Reading!

March 2017: Wrap Up #wrapup

screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-5-43-21-pm

March was an incredibly busy month for me, both personally and on the blog!

I  finalized a bunch of plans for my wedding, celebrated multiple birthdays (including my own!) and transitioned into some new routines.

I participated in multiple blog tours, completed several buddy reads with #cjsreads and was able to connect with some pretty amazing authors for Q&As.

While all this was going on, I managed to read thirty-five books! THIRTY-FIVE.

Needless to say people, I think I need a new hobby.

Keep reading to see my March wrap up!
