It’s Caidyn’s fall break!!

And I have NO. CLUE. how I did it.

I’m sure that you all have noticed, but I haven’t been around as much. Liking all the lovely posts that you all make and put out day by day is really hard enough as it is. I simply don’t have the time to complete schoolwork, create blog content, and take care of myself, so the whole commenting thing falls to the wayside. And, for that, I really am sorry since all of you put out such amazing things.

However, I made it through midterms. Which were a fucking bitch, let me tell you. One of my professors is insane and I sincerely hate her. She contradicts herself at every moment, her grading makes no sense, and her test questions were, in a word, ridiculous. At least it was a take-home with four chances to submit.

The other classes? Good but a lot of work.

Practicum is also going really well. I’m enjoying it a lot and I’m hoping to write more about it when I get a chance to. These days, I am way more active on Instagram, so if you don’t follow us, you should! You’ll get to see my face and hear my voice a lot more. You can find us here!

But, now, it is fall break. Which is very confusing in my school. My professors didn’t give us homework for October 7-13, but the school says that our break is October 13-16. I know. Confusing as hell but whatever. Last week, I kind of prepped for upcoming projects. But, this weekend, I’m going to give myself a chance for some self-care.

With that, comes a TBR that is a bit wild looking, but I don’t expect to get done with all of them.

This is going to be a wonderful buddy read with Sam! I’m looking forward to it so much.

This is me continuing on with my reread of this series in October! I remember this as being my favorite, so I’m planning on finishing this quickly.

Two short stories that I’ve owned for ages. I think it’s finally time that I get to it. What do you guys think? Agree with me?

Since I keep getting denied for The Wicked King, this is just going to have to tide me over. Do I sound bitter about that? A little. But, I’m going to read this because it’ll be super quick!

I think this is my obligatory King book for this month, but I’m also seriously excited about it.

*cries from joy* I’m so happy I got this and I’m definitely reading this. I need to see more of my beloved Percy. And Monty, too, of course.


Talk to me!
For students, current or past, do/did you make a TBR for your breaks?
Have you read or want to read any I listed?

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!

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!

IT WORKS LIKE THIS:

  • 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?
