  • 2018 Book Year In Review

    In 2018 I read 200 Books. It still blows my mind when I think of the fact that in 365 days, I read 200 books, that is over 58,000 pages, that amounts to 0.5 books a day- yess… madness. With that said, I have decided to not aim for such a high goal next year. […]

  • November Wrap Up

    November was a super weird reading month for me. I started November on a high.  I was excited to get through my To Be Read (TBR) pile and I attacked it aggressively, maybe a bit too aggressive. I started out reading some books that were all less than 150 pages then went on to tackle […]

  • October Wrap-Up

    In October I read 17 books, not as much as I wanted to, but according to Goodreads, I am still on track. (Yay). I am not sure if it is just me, but October went by so fast and all the reading I had planned to do did not happen. I think I just needed […]

The challenge was put forward on Bookstagram for readers to read the books they currently own during the month of September. While I was preparing for the challenge, I realized I had at least 20 books that I haven’t read on my shelf. My goal […]

  • July Wrap-Up

    This month I read a whopping 7,222 pages—that’s 22 books, 5 of which were solid 5-star reads. That leaves of course many that were underwhelming but also includes books that are my favorite re-reads. My standout books were “Nearing Home: Life, Faith and Finishing Well” by Billy Graham. This read really made me start thinking […]
