Hello, from my very own Marshmallow pool. I told the children that i was sorry for the mess, but i really like to bathe in marshmallows.

I said yesterday that i was stuck due to the youngest touching me, but for some reason the middle child’s lovely note got a little more magic in for me to move just a bit from the last spot i was in.

The children have been alright today, one has been a bit touching things he shouldn’t have (video games) but mommy has been handling it pretty good.

Well i am off to bathe some more in my little tub, will chat with you all tomorrow in my new found spot…. hehe where it be next?

Bye Bye 🎄❄️

Can someone scream at me to read the Grisha trilogy so I can read The Language of Thorns? I skimmed through the pages to admire the artwork and holy crap it's freaking beautiful but I don't feel like I should read it until after I actually read the Grisha trilogy (I've had the series for a few years now and nope I still haven't read it) let me know if you've read/enjoyed/ the Grisha trilogy or Language of Thorns or both in the comments 🍁 ➥ Get Featured: #readingmylife ➥ Follow : @reading_mylife to get more amazing photo ➥ Credited by : @fiderally . . . . . ——————————– #reading #booksandcoffee #book #books #readingtime #bookworm #readings #readinglist #readingnow #readingisfun #readingissexy #bookphotography #bookworm #bookworms #booklover #booklovers #reading #bookstagram #bookcommunity

Bookstagrammers to Follow!

Hey, Bookworms!

Welcome back to the soooo late bookstagrammers to follow! i did not post last weekend, became a bit busy and tired and did not blog at all!

Are we all ready to check out some of the most wonderful bookstagrammers i have found and followed.

Number One: d e s t i n y

It's the beginning of another week, and it looks like a busy one is ahead of me! Today is full of running errands, and then later this week, I have to go hit the library archives to research some old journals for an assignment that's coming up soon. Having a sick kiddo and a fiance recovering from having all four wisdom teeth pulled didn't lend to getting much done over the weekend, either, so I've got some cleaning to do and blogging to catch up on… I'm tired just typing this. 😴 ••• QOTD: What's the busiest day of the week for you, usually? ••• {#fivefavoriteworlds} Prythian, Hogwarts, Cabeswater, Red London, Middle Earth {#fivefavoritefoods} 🍕🍇🍫🍓🌯 (Thanks for the tags, @blackfeatherbooks!) ••• {#readgushsept17} tag time {#wishonseptember} hilarious characters (there's a scene in Just Listen with Owen and his sister that will never not make me laugh!) {#beastlybooksseptember17} white and blue books {#helloautumnseptember17} first in a series

Rainbow Book Tag

Hey, Bookworms!

I came across this tag @  Confessions of a YA Reader , very easy and fun to make a rainbow!

DSC_0391

Rules:

It must be the dominant color of the book, not the spine.

If you do not own a book of the color, just pick one that has the color somewhere on the book cover.

It has to be a book you own and/or has to be the version you read.

Tag other bloggers or booktubers.

2017 Reading Challenge – Mid Year Check Up

Image result for goodreads reading challenge

Hey, Bookworms!

Were gonna be checking up on my progress with my reading!! WAIT, WHAT! Did i just write that down, I sure did my Bookish friends. Which means you get a glimpse at my non awesome progress that keeps going up each time i get near the end or stays the same for awhile, who knows the life of a mother huh.

Related image

I  read 19 of 40 books

So, i started at only 5 books in the beginning of the year. I have now been going up after getting to 10 books, 20 times once i get close to the actual number. I am actually very happy i got to 19 books so far and have 2 i am reading now which will make it to 21 WHA!!! yeah i know i am surprised as well. 

This is my first year actually reading A LOT more books, i usually used to be TOO BUSY right ha! at least i thought i was until now. Now i have no idea what i was really busy with, Low – self esteem, Trying to be the perfect mother ( HA there is no such thing ), Anxiety issues which i still have but reading and my supplements are helping. So now i have all the time in the world you think i could read more but you know life of a mother!

I am hoping i will be hitting about 70 – 80 books by the end of the year! 


 

There, you see the small list of stories i have read minding i know some are kids ones but i loved reading them to my kids. I really need to get more Fantasy and YA in this list which should be soon. Also Spectre by Gerrit van Eck is one i technically had to read as i did not want to let my brother in law down since he is the Author of the book! ( If you have or are ordering it should let me know what you think )


 

Here is a glimpse at my ratings!

 

💝💝💝💝💝   … 13 books

💝💝💝💝  …  6 books

💝💝💝  …  5 books

 💝💝 …  3 books

💝   0 books
