Song of the Week

One of my favorite songs currently by one of my favorite new artists.  I find myself singing this song under my breath constantly any more.  Have a listen and see if you feel the same.

Between the magical humming background, the phenomenal lyrics, that voice, and that sweet man bun... this will likely be my favorite song of the year. You're welcome!

Song of the Week

With two weeks left before summer break...I'm desperately in need of motivation.  I am planning to find it by way of an anthem for the next few days from my girl Florence via Florence + The Machine.

"And it's hard to dance with the Devil on your shake it off!"  Amen, sister!

What is your favorite F+M song?   What are you listening to this week?

Bout of Books 13.0 and #CrushYourTBR Readathon Wrap Up

What a reading month this has been!  I just completed my third readathon for the month and started my fourth today!  I'm loving on the motivation to read!!

With last weeks double readathon I did pretty well.  I got in several graphic novels (one of my goals this year) and finished two novels!   Check out my video to see what I read and hear my final (amazing) totals!

Yeah.  I'm pretty excited about my reading achievements this week.  And unbelievebly there is ANOTHER readathon that started today - RYBSAT aka ReadYourBookShelfAThon.   I had a heard time narrowing down my self and finally settled on my "borrowed shelf" - mostly library books.  Here's a look at it:
As you can see, I have several graphic novels and a few novels to choose from.  I don't anticipate finishing all of these as I am still working and just started my last college class for an endorsement program.  Also, I'd already begun reading two other books.  So....we'll play it by ear and see how this FOURTH READATHON IN A ROW goes!

What are you reading this week?  Have you enjoyed in on my tbr shelf?

Thanks for reading!

Song of the Week!

This week's song is one I've been hearing around more and more lately.  At first, I was not a fan.  The more I hear it though, the more I find it stuck in my head, the more I like it.  I'm not sure how I feel about this video, but I love the song!  The melody is great, the music is neat and the concept is sweet!  Enjoy!
Have you heard of George Ezra?  What do you think of his music?  What are you listening too?

Thanks for reading!

ReReadathon TBR

The #AYearAThon & the ReReadathon both run from Monday, May 4 to Sunday, May 10th.  This week is all about rereading books you've enjoyed already.  I choose a view of my favorite standalones and a few first books in favorite series (leading up to the #AYearAThon - finishing series in June).  I'm super excited to jump into these books again and see how I relate to them now, at a different point in life.  Here is my possible TBR pile (I won't get to all, but here it pool I'll read from!)

What books do you find yourself re-reading?  Which are you re-reading this week?  Any of your fave's on my list?

Thanks for reading,

April Wrap Up

This month I read ELEVEN books!  I know - I can't believe it either.  This has been my best reading month by far -- ever!  I really attribute this all to joining the BookTube community.  I've already received comments and support via Twitter and YouTube and have gained my first 5 subscribers to my YouTube Channel!

(Which, by the way, *shameless plug*, you should go subscribe too if you have not yet!

Check out the books I read and what I thought of them in my wrap up video.

What books did you read in April?  What do you plan to read in May?

Check back tomorrow for my TBR video for next week's #AYearAThon!

Thanks for reading!
