And I’m Back! + TBR

I am sorry for my very long absence. Those of you who where here for my last post might remember the last thing I was talking about was RYBSAT. While this was good in theory, getting through things on my shelf, I picked a very bad point of my shelf to read and it sent me into the longest slump since starting blogging. I read Child of the Prophecy by Juliet Marillier, and while I did enjoy the book it took me forever to get through and the thought of moving onto the next ones made me slow down… Both these things we all know we don’t want for a read-a-thon! I also finished Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon  not that long before hand and wanted to get into the next book in that series I couldn’t pick it up until after I had reviewed Dragonfly, and I had no motivation to do that in my slump. So no audio books for me either. I also find that when I have all the time in the world, I do very little because I think I have all the time in the world.

But I am starting back up again.

In the time I have been gone I have finished my tafe course, lost a job due to lack of work, and I am now training at a new job, I feel its time to start pushing myself again.

I do have some thing written and prepared to be posted if not scheduled, but I will not be giving you a list of what is to come this time like I did with my last wrap up post. I am unsure in what I order I wish to post these things yet because some of them are time sensitive. I want to do a couple of book hauls, but first I have to post some videos I have made (hehehe) and if I do both I will not have time for very many book reviews this month. So you guys should let me know what you would prefer, get the videos and hauls out of the way and then do reviews mostly next month or catch up on some reviews and do hauls next month (videos will still be this month).

I will give you guys a small TBR for this month however:

tell the truth we were liars court of thorns and roses

March Wrap Up

wrapup

Hey guys, how have you been this month? Sorry I haven’t seen or really responded to any messages you have sent me. As I said in my last wrap up my major work has been consuming my life and its due on the 7th :'( so I am still consumed. I just wanted to pop in a give you guys a quick update.

Here are the kind of things I have been reading this last month:

carnivoures of aus Australian Mammals predatores with pouches

 

 

 

 

But then once all my school work is over I get to read again! Or at least a bit more because I will still be busy till the end of April. But I can plan on reading a few books so here are a couple I want to get into right away:

the-sacred-lies-of-minnow-bly-stephanie-oakes passenger

 

 

 

 

As a reward for finishing my major work I am getting myself a new bookcase to hold all the books I have gotten while I haven’t been able to read. So there might be a bookcase organisation video and tour for you guys in the future :) I haven’t planned or scheduled anything though because I need to focus, and I will want to have a bit of me time to just read.

AYearAThon – September

Yearathon

AYearAThon is a read a thon that happens each month throughout the year with different themes. You can find the goodreads group here. September’s theme runs from the 7th-13th. There doesn’t seem to be a specific time in which this starts, so I am starting the clock at midnight my time. This months theme is:

Banned Books

Now I don’t own that many books that have been banned, so during this week I will actually have to go out and get some that will fit, so hold my TBR to a grain of salt because I have no idea what I am going to read. I missed last month because I was way too busy to participate and the October theme doesn’t interest me that much so I wont be participating in it. So this month is mostly just to I am actually participating in a read-a-thon. Anyway, on with the books:
