BOOK HAUL: Stacking the Shelves!

I also have started tracking the books I acquire so that helps. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly post hosted… Continue reading BOOK HAUL: Stacking the Shelves!

READING CHALLENGE : Graphicsathon – Wrap Up

I did not write a TBR for this challenge but basically figured I would finish up the Food Wars! series before seeing what else I could knock off my exceedingly long TBR shelf. Big Mood Reader energy TBH. The goal of the Graphicsathon Reading Challenge is to read a graphic novel, or at least a… Continue reading READING CHALLENGE : Graphicsathon – Wrap Up

BOOK HAUL: San Diego Independent Bookstore Book Haul

So on a recent trip down to San Diego I managed to visit not one, but two independent book stores!! Shoutout to my boyfriend to let me drag him all over the city for my bookish desires.  Mysterious Galaxy So I hadn't actually visited in-store before, since I mostly order through their website.

BOOK HAUL: Tree’s Spring-ish 2021 Book Haul

BOOK HAUL TIME had big hopes to post hauls all last year, but that DID NOT happen. You can see my haul for January 2020 here and February & March 2020 here.

MISC: Bree’s 2020 Reading Stats

I feel like one of my defining personality traits is my drive to ask weird questions and find out unusual tidbits (for later regurgitation). So when I read Tree's 2019 Reading Stats post, I was absolutely enthralled with the idea of analyzing my own reading data. I instantly created an (ever-expanding) excel sheet with all… Continue reading MISC: Bree’s 2020 Reading Stats

MISC: Tree’s 2020 Reading Stats

So I get weirdly excited about my reading spreadsheet and sharing any conclusions I can draw from my reading.  Here is my post from 2019 in case you're interested? Idk why… Continue reading MISC: Tree’s 2020 Reading Stats
