Oh My Gosh! I Almost Missed ARC AUGUST!!!!

I participated in this event last year and had so much fun, I am so mad at myself for almost missing a chance to sign up since it starts TOMORROW!!!!

 

Anyway, so yeah, I am participating this year.  We will not discuss my Netgalley percentage.  It’s better than it was before the wellness challenge, but I havent read a danged thing for like, 2 months, basically, since the wellness challenge ended.  So I have to get this under control!

My goal is to try to get through 8 ARCs this month.  I have a ton, and this is barely a dent, but I need to start somewhere, right?

Rabid Reader Ramblings: First Impressions: Kindle Unlimited

R3-HeaderWell, I know, it has been dangerously quiet here lately.  No, I have not stopped reading.  No, I have not stopped blogging.  But, it tends to get a bit hectic around here during the summer, with a houseful of kids, one of whom hates the fact that she is not in school right now because she yearns for the structured, carefully planned out days that her classroom provided and that mommy stinks at trying to replicate for her at home.

But, hark! I received an email and saw a bunch of hubbub on the interwebs about a service that gave me the means to springboard a new R3 post and I wanted to run with it.

TREESOFREVERIE JUNE READ-A-THON: QUESTIONNAIRE | PART 1

  • 01. Where will you be sharing your bookish updates for the Treesofreverie June Read-A-Thon?
  • 02. How did you start book blogging? What got you interested in starting, were there particular blogs that influenced or encouraged your decision? (If you don’t have a book blog, are you interested in starting one?)
    • It may sound weird, but the first trigger was getting a Nook tablet from a friend for Christmas that year.  It got me back to reading again and involved in online book communities, which led to the friendship that ultimately inspired my book blogging journey.

A Brief Update for the #treesofreveriereadathon

So, It’s technically speaking day 3 in this readathon so far, and thus far I have read 340 pages.  I am into my second book, and this book meets one of my reading prompts or reading challenges (without going back and looking, I don’t remember which category it was in) of being a book I was sent for an honest review.  I am currently reading The Stepsister’s Tale.  I am about 25% into the book and so far it is starting to get kind of interesting.  My first book of the readathon, which I had started just prior to the readathon and got to finish up, was The Body in the Woods by April Henry and became one of the few negative reviews that will be posted on my blog.  The review went up yesterday, June 17th.  I was not thrilled with the book, but you all can read my review and decide for yourselves.
