March Recap, with sadness, & What Comes Next!

March was so hard for my family.  I recently announced that we were expecting a baby, and sadly a couple weeks ago we lost it.  It’s been tough for all of us, and thank goodness for scheduling posts because I didn’t really visit Birdie Bookworm much, let alone write or read. I didn’t read much, […]

2017 Beat the Backlist RESULTS!!

My first beat the backlist is under my belt, and honest I think I could have done much better. Of my planned reads, I only managed 6 books.  That is such a wimpy score!  Thankfully my list doesn’t look too bad, because I fluffed it up with surprise choices from my backlist.  Some of them […]

2018 Beat the Backlist Challenge

I don’t feel like my 2017 Beat the Backlist challenge was very fruitful.  Not only did I fall off my list, I also stopped filling out the form to log my page count.  In 2018 I’m going to do much better.  That’s my goal anyway.  This is supposed to the asskicking I need to get […]

November Recap & What Comes Next!

May 2017 Recap & What’s Coming Next

This month I really struggled with where to put my reads on the ratings list.  You see, rarely is a book exactly 5 stars, sometimes it’s only a 4.75… close enough to 5 that it shouldn’t be lumped in with the 4 star reads.  I’m honest to a fault.  I couldn’t say they were all […]
