Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars brilliantly explores the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Goals/Resolutions for 2015

 

So, you may have noticed, I have been in a bit of a blogging slump.  That is partly because I have been in a bit of a reading slump.  But here I am, grabbing back the reigns, and I thought to myself,  “Self, what’s a good way to keep making sure I have fresh content going up.  I know!!  A Meme or two!”  So here I am!

I thought, Top Ten Tuesday is a good one for getting my feet wet and trying out a meme to see how it goes on here.  I don’t do things like this often, so bear with me while I work out the kinks and such!

Bout of Books 12!!!!! It’s Almost Time!! #boutofbooks

Bout of Books
I know, I know, there has been a major blogging slump happening here.  I have a ton of reviews mostly drafted, and I just need to finish formatting them and get them scheduled up.  I also hit a reading slump and from mid November to Present day, I finished exactly 1 book.  This is a fact that brings me much sadness.  So I thought to myself, “Self, what better way to solve these slumps than to participate in Bout of Books yet again?  ” and so…  Here I am!!
For those who do not know what Bout of Books is:
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
I have not decided on my goals and such yet, so I will get back to you on that, but let this serve as my “I’m in” post!
