Down the TBR Hole

Down the TBR Hole

Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia @ Lost in a Story.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!


  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Survey for 2018

Hello everyone!

Last year, Chantel and I put together a survey where you all could give us feedback on the blog. We did it on Survey Monkey last year and had a lot about book recs for our book club.

This time, things are a bit different.

It’s only six questions, no book recommendations (unless you want to give them in a comment!), and most are optional. It’s super easy and you can take it right here on this post.

If you could please take a second and respond to it, that’d be great! I know that I want to take suggestions from you all and help tailor the blog. Everything’s anonymous, so don’t worry about me knowing what you said!

Thank you all! ❤

Top Ten Tuesday – Bookish Resolutions/Goals

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

So, today’s post is really a freebie, so I’m going back and doing some bookish goals that I have for 2019! I’m already trying to think ahead since, well, we only have a few weeks until the next year hits us.

One semester down, three to go!

I did it! I finished my first semester of grad school and I, honestly, can’t believe it. This year has gone by in such a flash. I was prepared for the increase in work, yet I was absolutely shocked at the same time. It was more that they were asking me to do more, not that it was harder.

But, I finished. I have a month long break that I’m taking full advantage of. Like the good social worker I aspire to be, I set boundaries with my practicum. I flat out told them that I’ll work on stuff for indirect hours, but I’m not coming in and I’m not going to see clients.

However, I’ll be picking up a lot of hours at work. It’s our busiest time of the year. I fully expect my feet to be aching but my paycheck to be large. (Which is good.)

Next semester, I have super boring sounding classes. I’ll be using any money I get this year for Christmas to pay for those textbooks, so I already know that I won’t be getting a lot for the holidays this year. Which is fine. My parents bought out the textbooks I rented for this semester, so I’m eternally grateful for that since they’ll be helpful my whole career. But, at the same time, it kinda sucks that I won’t have as many “fun” presents. The small sacrifices will be worth it in the end!

Still, I’m so damn happy that I’m done for the time being. I need the break.

Talk to me!
Who else is ready for a bit of a break?
Anyone have fun holiday plans?
