Make Me Read It Tag

HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE! Only three more days until the WEEKEND, you can DO THIS! I am currently participating in the Make Me Read It Readathon and YOU had the chance to vote and decide what books I am reading and when I am reading them. I’m about three days behind (yeesh) because I had a long weekend and I had to recover today, but I am BACK and ready to turn some pages, no paper-cuts required! So here is the line up for this week:

With an astounding four votes, The Roadrunner Cafe by Jamie Zerndt is the first book I’m going to be reading.


A three way TIE between Into the Dark by Brian Spangler, Kingdom from Ashes by Megan Linski, and The Deepest Red by Miriam Bell. Annnnnd coming in last with one vote is The Way by Mary E. Twomey. The rest of the books didn’t get any votes, but I’m sure I’ll read them eventually (maybe.). Here is how I plan to do this. I’m going to start reading The Roadrunner Cafe and I’ll post updates on how it’s going via Twitter. Make sure you’re following me so you can see my thoughts first hand before they come together in a review!

I also uploaded a poll onto Twitter last night for you all to vote on as a tie breaker for the three books that received two votes each, it’ll be up for two days or when I finish The Roadrunner Cafe (whichever comes first), so don’t procrastinate when it comes to voting!

That’s about it, let the reading begin!

Recovery Plans

Happy 4th of July!!!

I’m still recovering from the last two weeks so I couldn’t get enough energy to write up my next review. I hope to get back on track by tomorrow because it’s stressful to not have reviews lined up for this week. But, I didn’t want to just not post today, so this is what I decided to do instead: Give you all a sneak peak of what I have planned for the rest of the 2016 year (in no particular order).

Instagram. I want to start up an Instagram account and I have a few ideas on what I want to do with it that’ll let you guys have more of a say on what I read. I think it’ll be fun for you guys to choose!

My own content. This doesn’t go to say that what I’ve been posting isn’t my own content, gracious no. But…I want to start posting articles on here, so look out for those. They’ll be original, of course.

Other content. Guest posting!! I already have one guest post lined up with my good friend (and one of my favorite introverts) Maggie over at Maggie’s Musings (Check out her blog!) and we’ve been collaborating for a while. I want to have a guest post every now and then on my blog and I hope to get started guest posting on other blogs as well.

Giveaways. I want to host my first Between Reality giveaway. I don’t know when, but I’ve been doing my research for months now and I want to do that soon so keep an eye out. 😉

Logo. I may or may not have a new logo which I will be posting about very soon. Not to give any spoilers but I love it and it’s gorgeous…

Old new stuff. I started doing tags and Themed Thursdays, which I’ll be keeping up on. I love alliteration so that’s what Tagged Tuesdays and Themed Thursdays is a thing. Don’t be surprised if I post twice in one day, though. I promise not to spam you, however! I just have so much to say, will five days of the week ever be enough? We shall see…

Also, just a reminder, I’m participating in my first Readathon! Go vote so I know what you want me to read!

I have a few other ideas still, you know me, always trying to put forth something new. But I think that what I’ve given is a good taste of what’s to come. If you have any suggestions, always know that I’m open to hearing them!

My First ‘Thon!

Two posts in one day! *screams as the world comes to an end* Agh, I know, I never do this (until now) but I have a book review scheduled for Friday and I want it to be the sole focus for the day.


I am going to participate in the Make Me Read It Readathon hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley and Ely @ Tea Titles!

It’s a Readathon that runs from July 9th to July 16th where you as my audience choose the books I read and in what order I read them! If you’d like to learn more and/or join in, head over to here.

Alright, I won’t lie. My TBR (To Be Read) list is ridiculous. I have books listed in my shopping cart and Wish List on Amazon that I want to buy, I have twenty-five books in the “Want To Read” collection on my Amazon Kindle App (which doesn’t include the 31 non-YA books I want to try out), I literally just added another book to my Want to Read list on Goodreads while I was writing this post, and I’ll let you in on my dirty little secret: My book addiction is so bad that I currently have 908 books downloaded on my Amazon Kindle App.

I know. Almost 1,000 books that at some point I wanted to read enough that I clicked “One-Click Purchase,” or downloaded them from InstantFreebie, or downloaded them from NetGalley, or…or…or….so many or’s. I’m getting help for my addiction, don’t worry. (Okay, that is a lie.)

So, below is the poll for the books you can vote make me read. You don’t have to be following my blog to vote, but it would be nice. 😉

I know, I know. Ten choices? Isn’t that overkill? It might be, but in case something happens where I can’t continue a book (or I finish more than I thought I would) I don’t want to be stuck. Besides, what’s 10 books out of 908? Vote vote vote! I’m so excited.

Here’s a link to each book in the same order listed on the poll so that you don’t have to search each one for the synopsis:

Into the Dark by Brian Spangler

Kingdom from Ashes by Megan Linski

Hidden Deep by Amy Patrick

The Roadrunner Cafe by Jamie Zerndt (Formerly known as Brailling for Wile)

The Way by Mary E. Twomey

First Kiss by Ann Marie Frohoff
