Books & Cookies! And One Late Tag…

jack-jack loves cookies

Once upon a time wonderful blogger Kelly from Just Another Book in the Wall tagged me in the Cookie Book tag and I immediately thought… cookies and books! Yes! Then I was cursed with procrastination, forgetfulness and a general ability to lose my Blogging Notebook like everywhere and now eons later (at least months) I’m doing the tag!

I’m also a (cheap) cookie connoisseur so am including below the 5 greatest cookies of all time.

Contemplating Changing Opinions & Blogging Life

Screen Shot 2018-09-13 at 4.20.58 PM

So at the end of September I will have had this blog for 4 years. I was looking back over old posts to see if my opinions had changed about anything. I reread a couple of books I’ve loved in the past. I rewatched a bunch of movies. Probably the big one this year I’ve tried the whole audio book thing again.

Writer’s Box #2: August 2018

Scribbler August Box

So in July I received my first Scribbler box which is a subscription box for writers by writers and while I wasn’t big on it I decided to keep the subscription going for August.

I thought August -which was all about “Creating Tension” -really upped the game. I also must say that one of the “perks” from this box is getting to participate in private chats with industry insiders. I was late for the July event but watched it after and I did take some interesting information so I’m looking forward to the next one.

Germs, Television Wins & a lot of Books

august recap

I love getting to spend time with my nephew and since he started school I don’t see him as much but man every time I do I wind up sick. It’s as though sometimes when he’s hanging off me I can actually see the germs.

I think there’s something worse about summer colds. It’s like the whole world is so damned bright and you just want to crawl under the covers.

Classicsathon Wrap-Up!

the slippers are ruby red!

So I participated in Classicsathon this month which was run by Lucy the Reader on Youtube and Twitter and amazingly enough I followed and finished a TBR!

I really enjoyed the reading as well!

Me: I’m not really a classics reader. They just don’t do anything for me, you know?

(Actually reads the books.)

Me: These are so good! Why don’t I read more classics?

Book Recommendations: Summer Edition!

Book Recommendations Tag

This tag was originally created over on Youtube by Zarriah Rose & I have actually managed to do some seasonal recommendations for Winter and Spring. There’s a couple of good days left of summer (actually more but I’m of the once past Labor Day and back in school it’s officially over.)

Below are some fun recommendations for books I read this summer! But are good any old time of year.

July Recap: Some of this is Relevant!

july recap

July has come and gone. It’s almost Fall! Okay not really. August and September actually tend to be the most miserable of months in Southern California but I’m looking on the bright side here. Fall candles are out. Back to school shopping has started and the year is going by so fast I’ll blink and we’ll be changing the clocks.

Happy Birthday Harry… a Tag & a Ramble

harry potter tag

I was tagged by the awesome blogger Sophia Ismaa in the Harry Potter Tag! And since today (July 31st) is Harry’s birthday it seemed like fortuitous timing. Also now I can totally (and completely unjustifiably) pat myself on the back and tell myself I’m working on tags.

So below I answer the questions and possibly ramble about Harry. FYI I took the Pottermore quiz to answer the first three questions in said tag.
