Hey guys! A few days ago I posted a TBR for The Reading Quest as well as the 7 in 7 readathon, and I am pleased to update you with GOOD NEWS! (Well, mostly) I finished the last 100 pages of Uprooted (which I was reading for #MakeMeRead) on the 14th (first day of 7 in 7, second day of TRQ), and then was able to read the first 70 pages of Book of Shadows before I went to bed. I finished the last 100 pages of BoS today (the 15th) and then was able to knock out Ronit & Jamil in an hour, so I am now 2 books down for both! Unfortunately, I didn’t really love either one, so I figured I’d combine them both in a double review for you guys! Let’s just get started, shall we? Continue reading

Just a tad bit of poetry…

Life is always
In progress
Never done
Never truly finished
Always something more to do

Never done
My work is ongoing
And I will never reach the end
I am buried in all this never ending work
It only grows
It will cover me up
Until I no longer see the light of truth
And I will be buried in my own sweat
My own tears
My own blood
Buried
Buried by my own hand

The Book Spine Tag

I found this tag when I was actually searching for another one that Nikki liked. She said it was involuntarily picking your family from book characters? It took me forever to figure out she meant the Book Life Tag…

Anyway, I found this in the archives of a website, Dee’s Reads. Basically, Dee said you create a poem from the titles on a book’s spine. Hers looked really fun and simple so I wanted to try it! But… We decided to make some rules, because we love nominating people. Continue reading
