TBR Highs and Lows Check-in and TBR Updates

Good morning everyone! I meant to have this going up yesterday, but I haven’t been doing great lately, mentally. I’m trying to get better. It’s getting there. I’m having a bit more motivation now, which is a good sign.

So, since I didn’t get the chance to post this yesterday, I’m going to end up posting two things today. But first is this.

I’ll be taking a look back at the post I had go up last week called TBR Highs and Lows. I’ll be letting you all know what I’m keeping on my TBR and what I’m going to be getting rid of.

Along with that, I made some changed to how I’m setting up my TBRs every month. I have a general “formula” I go by and I’m going to be making a change to it.

So all that being said, let’s get into it!

Weekly Update! | Weeks 10 & 11

Good morning everyone! Sorry I didn’t post over the weekend. I was really sick all last week and then was so tired Thursday, I didn’t even go into work. So I allowed myself a bit of a break and relaxed all weekend and just read.

So, you’d think that this weekly wrap up would be a bit better. But it’s not. And that’s okay.

This will be for last week (March 2- 8) which was week 10 and this week (March 9-15) which is week 11. Let’s just get into it!

WWW Wednesday 2.19.2020

Hump Day!!! It’s Wednesday and if you follow a lot of book blogs, then you know for most of them, it’s WWW Wednesday. I decided that I wanted to do this every once in a while to help keep you all up to date with my reading. But I also decided to do weekly wrap ups and TBRs so…

Sorry if this post is a bit repetitive. This is more focused than those, though. Since I already gave my thoughts on my last read, I won’t be sharing those. I’ll just link to my post. But the rest I’ll share!

January In Photos Wrap Up

Good morning everyone. Today’s going to be a super quick and easy post.

I’m going to be sharing with you all my favorite photos that I posted in January. Then I’ll be showing you the ones that got the most interactions and the ones with the most likes, if they are different.

What I want to see most is interaction. I always ask a question on my posts so make sure you’re answering them!

Also, really quick, I’m going o be doing a revamp on my website. I’m going to be taking a look at how it’s currently set up and maybe change a little or change the entire theme. We’ll see.

While I didn’t post everyday of January, I did end up posting 28 photos. I did very well and I’m happy with what I put out.

For likes, it was the same three, but the order changed, putting Harley first.

The information on this may be a bit wrong because of the fact the earlier photos of the month got more views generally.

But that’s really it. I wanted to see how my favorites compared to the stats.

Comment with what picture of these six is your favorite!

Thanks for joining me. Bye!

February & Readathin TBR | 2020

Well, good morning everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful week and now we are looking forward to the weekend!

Today I’m going to discuss my TBR for Readathin. Now, I ended up filming the video for my TBR a few days ago and I’ve finished some of these books already, so you’ll be hearing about them in my wrap up.

So make sure you check out my wrap up when that comes out to see what books I read in January from this list.

So I didn’t post the video, but I decided to change how I’m doing my TBRs. I’m going to go through my new setup, and then go through the Readathin challenges and show you what books I’ve chosen for those! Just be warned, there are a ton of books.

Readathin TBR

So that’s it! If you want to see how these books I mentioned fit into each challenge for Readathin, then go check out my video. Also, don’t forget to comment on either the video or this post letting me know what you plan on reading!

Thanks so much for joining me and I’ll see you all in the next one! Bye!

Decluttering My Life: Week 4 Check-in

Good morning everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful beginning of the week and continue to for the last half of the work week. If you didn’t have a great start to the week like me, then I hope the second half looks up.

What do you do when you’re feeling overwhelmed?

One of the things I do is sit down and come up with a plan. So that leads us into today’s post. We’re going to do a check-in with how I’m doing with my decluttering.

We’re into the fourth week of the year. The third full week, but the fourth week.

And I haven’t decluttered anything. Some of my son’s toys but I also had those packed up and ready before this year hit. He found the box and started digging through it so we got rid of it.

The question of the day comes into play with the lack of decluttering that I’ve done. I’m feeling overwhelmed. January is almost over and I feel like I haven’t been working toward my life goals. Reading, yes. Life, no.

So I’m going to make up a plan for the rest of this month and one for next month. We plan on moving out of our apartment in July so the less stuff we have to move, the better.

Plan of Action

There are 5 months that I would use for decluttering. February through June. And I have broken my apartment and life into 6 categories. One will be done this month.

January will be focused one general cleaning rather than organizing and decluttering, but I’m not going to let myself not declutter something so I’ll be focusing on my electronics.

My phone, iPad, and laptop. I’ll be moving documents off those and moving them to my external hard drive. I’ll be going through. The hard drive and try to organize it in a way that makes things easier to find when they are needed.

February will be focusing on the kitchen, March the living room, April the bedroom, May the playroom/library, and June will finally be the bathroom and closets (in my hallway and living room/entrance.

So that’s my general idea. For now, I’m going to share with you all the checklist that I’m going to use to track my progress with decluttering my electronics.

If you all want more graphics like that one, let me know and I can make them over my journey. I’m more of a visual person and I love making lists, so this will definitely help me out a lot.

Thanks so much for joining me and I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know how you are trying to minimize in your life.

Have a wonderful second half of the week. Always remember that you’ve been through worse and you’re only dealt cards you can handle, no matter how impossible it may seem right now.

Try guessing in the comments which ones of these I already own! That’s really it for this post though.

If you want to know what any of these books are about, feel free to ask in the comments.

Weekly TBR and Goals | Dec 30, 2019-Jan 5th, 2020

Oh hey! It’s Monday! That means it’s time to set some goals. Great. Let’s start setting. But first, welcome.

I’m sorry that I didn’t get a chance to get my December Book Haul up for you all. My phone airdropping to my iPad just wasn’t working and I haven’t had the motivation to switch to my computer.

So I’ll work on that tomorrow and until then, I’m sorry. Goal is to have both of those up tomorrow. I have a post planned for each and every day this week. Today’s is this. Tomorrow is wrap up and hauls for December.

So tomorrow is going to be a busy day for me when it comes to blogging.

But another main goal of the week is reading. I would like to finish Snowed in Love before tomorrow is over (I just finished PS I Still Love You but that was on the list too). I also would like to finish reading QoN and listen to A Darker Shade of Magic entirely, same with The Valentine Proposal.

Lastly for reading, I want to start Chestnut Man. I doubt I’ll get to all of the books mentioned, but some are higher priorities than others.

Any other tasks that I have for the week are cleaning and home related. Oh, besides wanting to update my planners every day and wanting to participate in two Instagram photo challenges.

But other than that I mainly just want to get my home in order. My brother is moving out and since we already get up my son’s bed in our room and it won’t fit thought outs bedroom doors, the spare room will be the playroom for both my husband and my son.

So that means a lot of rearranging and reorganizing. But since that probably won’t be don’t until next week, I want to finalize placement plans.

I want to start working on the kitchen declutter and start on school stuff since that starts tben 6th.


Anyway, it’s currently 4:30pm and I’ve been up for almost 34 hours. Sox I’m passing out. Especially since I had one cup of coffee yesterday when I woke up.

Don’t forget that NewYearsathon starts on the first! I definitely look forward to doing this readathon with you all.

Let me know in the comments what goals you have for this week.

See you all in the next one! Bye!

Cram-a-thon TBR | December 2019

Good morning everyone. I didn’t realize cramathon started literally yesterday until, well, yesterday. So I’m sharing my TBR today on a day I wouldn’t normally be posting. Which is fine!

So I am only at 124 of my 150 books according to goodreads. Honestly I don’t even know how correct that is anymore. I haven’t been updating it. I plan on updating a list on my computer/iPad more often than goodreads for next year. But I have to read a lot if I want to complete that goal. So cheesy romance audiobooks, manga, and poetry collection are going to be my friends. Or books I am close to finishing.

So here’s my “official” tbr for Cram-a-thon even though I plan to hopefully read more.

I’m nearly done with Christmas Wish, so I will definitely be finishing that during this readathon. I also would like to get to Snowed in Love before Christmas.

I got both of these books for review from Give Me Books Promotions, but I didn’t get to them before the release of Snowed in Love.

Another two that I got for review. These two come out in January and I would really like to get to them before the year is over so I can keep myself more ahead of my arcs.

Queen of Nothing will be going toward the challenge of reading a “frosty” cover. I have started it, but I’m only 50 pages in. Everyone I know that has read it has said it’s a super quick read. So I’m hoping for that.

For the book under 200 pages I’m going to be reading I Find You in the Darkness.

The She Book is going toward the shortest book on my TBR.

For the author with the same first letter of their first name as me, I’m going an extra step and doing the whole first name and last initial with Christmas Wish.

For the illustrations in the book and the 2019 release, I’m going to look into some Amanda Lovelace and also some manga. This will help me reach my goal.

For 7 books, I’m hoping to read The White Christmas Inn.

So in other words, lots of poetry collections and quick fun reads like romances. I still like to believe I can complete my goal, but I also know there’s no way. I’d have to read almost 3 books a day to hit that. Wish me luck.

Thank you all so much for joining me today. I’m hoping one of these days to get back into YouTube but for now, I’m going to continue to show my blog the love it deserves and you all the same love.

I’m going to be starting “theme” days on my Instagram for the captions and I’m hoping to do almost the same here. I’d like to start posting daily and the theme days can help with that. Some posts will be more in depth, some will be short and sweet.

So to do this, I need your help. Comment down below with anything you would like to see me posting about. I’m open to trying some new things. It doesn’t necessarily have to be book related. I have lots of things I would be willing to talk about so you’ll never know without suggesting!

I’ll see you all in the next one! Bye!
