Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: DAY 4

Day 4, over halfway done! I started The Magicians by Lev Grossman today, but only made 34 pages. Its a really good 34 pages though!! I really can’t wait to see what is happening… George R.R. Martin himself said, “The Magicians is to Harry Potter as a shot of Irish whiskey is to a glass of weak tea.” I MEAN, COME ON!!! This is gonna be good. The morning of Day 4 brought the panic of Booktube-A-Thon being over halfway over, and the fact that I’ve only completed ONE BOOK.…

Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: Day 3

Day 3 …. oh, dear Day 3. A sad reading day for me, lol. I had a long day at work, and although I left work early, I didn’t get home until an hour after I usually do, because of traffic. It was worse today than usual because I work near a stadium in a major city, and there was a day game… so… game traffic… woo-hoo… So needless to say when I got home I crashed on the couch. My boyfriend got home about the same time as I…

Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: DAY 1

Day 1 is done!! I got about half way through my first book, Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos. It took me about 100 pages to get into it, but before I even realized it, I was deeply hooked into the lives of these characters and the mutual problem that brought them all together. I really can’t wait to see how this plays out. And I’m really considering picking up another book by Marisa de los Santos … I’m just wary of “mushy” stories. This wasn’t “mushy” per se,…

Stacking the Shelves: April 2016

I am starting my very own original series here on The Daily Waltz, called Stacking the Shelves! This will be a monthly post to let you know what is coming up for the next month. I wasn’t satisfied doing just the Bookshelf Update series, which is a retroactive series of recaps each month. If I do a proactive post each month it will help us with all the exciting Read-A-Thons happening in 2016 that we have to plan for!! 🙂 The TBR List just helps me organize what I’m reading this month, and what…

Bookshelf Update: January 2016

I’m really excited to start a new monthly series this year called “Bookshelf Update!” This is what book Bloggers/YouTubers are calling “Wrap Ups” and most commonly post on a monthly basis. Welcome to the FIRST EDITION of “Bookshelf Update!” The month of January is always my slowest reading month, so this won’t be too terribly exciting, although I did purchase quite a few books this month 🙂 Amazon prime … my best friend & worst enemy 😉 This series will be sponsored by the BookDepository.com.
