What Got Me Through This Week…

Russian Doll on Netflix

Hey everyone.  This past week was a bit difficult for me to get through.  Some days are better than others, and that’s just how it is sometimes, I guess.  In today’s article, I’m going to put real life to the side for the moment to talk about the things that helped get me through this past week.

Book Review: In a Dark, Dark Wood

This new year started off great for this gal in the reading bookworm department.  I finished my first book read of the new year in January.  Which was the novel “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” by Jenny Han.  Curious about this gal’s thoughts on that lovely novel & its film adaptation?  Check out […]

This new year started off great for this gal in the reading bookworm department.  I finished my first book read of the new year in January.  Which was the novel “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” by Jenny Han.  Then this slow as can be bookworm that I am, actually somehow managed to finish my second book read of this very new year in February.  Which was “Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli.  Then came March, and I started to read my third book read of the year “In a Dark, Dark Wood” by Ruth Ware.  Between working on articles for my blog, I just didn’t end up finishing this book until…… (hold for dramatic effect)….. JUNE!  All bookworms out there reading this, I know, I know, “Major Bookworm Nerd Fail” here.  I realize this.  But at the end of the day, I did finally finish reading this book.  It just took way longer to accomplish reading completely than I would have initially of expected when I started reading it way back in the month of March.

Book & Book Adaptation Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before….

Hey All! Okay, so I had one reading goal initially for myself when entering this New Year of 2019 for when it came to dealing with the topic of what books to read. I had the goal of reading more novels that don’t have any adaptations as of yet, you know read to read and not watch a film/tv version of it afterwards.

20190228_181109Okay, so as you can tell by now the first book that I finished reading in this year of 2019 so far was indeed a book that does in fact have an adaptation. At some point during this New Year, I do hope to read more books that don’t have an adaptation at the point I’m reading them, I promise. Technically, I did start to read “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” during the late fall months of 2018 before the New Year began so that reading goal of mine didn’t yet apply, I’ll say. And being somewhat of a slow bookworm reader I finished reading this novel a few months later. So even though I started reading this in late 2018, I didn’t finish reading it until the second week of January. Thus, making it my first official book read of 2019! Oh, for how exciting it is for that moment where you finish reading just a really great book, you know! Slow Bookworm Reader (that is I) says a “Heck Yes” to that!
