I did it!!!I finished my good reads goal with lost of time to spare!! yay!! I set my expectations kind of high this year 100 books (or I thought high). I actually finished last week but didn’t put it on here yet. I calculated it and I read 2-3 books a week. Some of these books are 300 pages some are 600+. The most famous question I get is well you have 3 kids and a full time job when do you read?? Here’s the thing I don’t really watch TV and the only time I watch TV is when I’m on the treadmill. If I’m doing laundry I’m usually holding onto a book, if I’m eating supper or lunch and no kids need me at the moment I’m reading a book. I always, always have some form of a book in my purse whether an ebook on my kindle, nook, or tab or an actual book. If it doesn’t fit in my purse (yes I have books that big) then I place the books in a separate tote bag and that bag goes more places than my purse!!
Then I started reviewing for publishers and authors. Let me tell you getting ARCs has been a super duper highlight of having this blog!! I love ARC’s and I love authors and publishers who are willing to share these ARC’s. Any author I have met or chatted online with has been super nice and helpful.
I really love reading and I like watching vlogs about books or following blogs about books. Here are some of my favorite blogs/ vlogs.
Polandbananasbooks on youtube she is hilarious and does almost all YA books. (Thank you wonderful sister in law for introducing me to her) 2 friends of polandbananasbooks on youtube are jessethereader and katytastic their vlogs are also great!
KindlesandWine.com It’s a blog that reviews all different genre of books. Usually if one of the gals from this blog recommends you read a book I go out and buy it that week. Their recommendations are usually 5 star reads! (They also happen to love one of my favorite authors Jill Shalvis)
Any author you like… seriously almost all authors you read have a webpage with a blog. I love seeing what they are up to if they will be in my area for a signing, etc.
RuckusGirl.com is another blog I follow. I know, I know not a book blog. However if you want an honest blog and usually a good chuckle this is a good one to follow.
I do have a field trip today for one of the kiddos but don’t you worry I will be packing a book in case we have any downtime 🙂 Have a great day, week, month!!!
