Currently Reading: June


Well, I don’t know about you but when I read I usually have a few I rotate. I read on my iPad where I have my reading apps, Bluefire Reader, Kindle and Overdrive, but as everyone knows devices have batteries and batteries eventually die! Now, I love, love, love my iPad, because the battery lasts quite long for as much as I read – especially if I’m careful to close background apps and dim the brightness.

That aside, I am one of those readers that has to have a few books going on at the same time, which means I roughly finish 3ish books around the same time. Sometimes more if the spirit moves me to read more – or rather if I feel up to challenging myself.

I’m also partaking in my A-Z Book Savvy challenge, I need to update that, too!


goldencoverCurrently Re-Reading Golden by K.M. Robinson, today is the first day of the Read-A-Long hosted by K.M. Robinson. For those of you who don’t know Golden is a dystopian/fantasy/young adult retelling of Goldlilocks – she is on a mission to take out the Baer family, but she wasn’t counting on Baby Bear – aka Dov Baer to throw a wrench into the mix..

6693 I have seen this movie several times, it is clever [as it should be – foxes and all,] plus highly comical. I have never read the book though and slowly but surely I have been reading Dahl books to my kiddos at night. This is one of them. It helps that there are some fun pictures throughout the story.

35113253I have had the pleasure of reviewing for Indie author Suzanne Rogerson before Visions of Zarua so I was excited with the prospect of reviewing this gem.

I’m not quite into the 1/4 mark, but Rogerson doesn’t disappoint with this fantasy meets spiritual world tale!

33310247 It should come as no surprise to people that I love cats. I have 3 of them and I’d have more if my husband wasn’t put-him-in-the-hospital kind of allergic and the fact that he allows me to have three is a sign of how much he loves me. Hehe, this being said, when I saw this title available via Curiosity Quills I had to leap for it! Because – vampire cat? Judgy little thing that he is? Plus, I love Tyrolin – she is creepy, weird and well she is my people.

6569438 My cousin actually referred this to me. This is not a typical read of mine by any means -gestures to the above books- as you can see, but I like to reach out of my comfort zone and sometimes read something that is thought-provoking. My cousin said it has stayed with her and she read it years ago, so why not? I read the first few pages and I can see why.

It talks about the fundamentals we learn in Kindergarten and really how that is all you really need to know to get on in life – isn’t that true? Interesting read so far!

And really, there you have it. That is what I am reading… I am due to read more, but I am in the process of moving and so my books are jumbled and my time is spent. Oh, plus the house has been in quarantine due to a disgusting pre-summer virus!


What are you currently reading? Share your list! [or if your normal…share the book! ;)]

  1. I need to read Golden! That looks awesome! I’m currently reading a Christmas book for “Christmas in July” I always read/plan out for a month ahead because I’m crazy that way 😀

    I’m not enjoying it though. I’m tempted to lay it down and pick up a different Christmas book.

    • Yes! There is a read along that just started today, KM Robinson is super fun to interact with, too.

      http://resources.readingtransforms.com/goldenreadalong – Just in case! 😉

      Oh! Interesting, I’m trying to think of a good Christmas book I’ve read.. I mean, the tried and true A Christmas Carol is my go-to, the Christmas Box was another one that has stayed with me, too.

      Good luck with that read!

      • My mom quilts so a book revolving around quilts felt like a cozy choice. These characters are just blah so far. I am a speed reader and it has taken me two days to read 38 pages 😳

      • Oh man, that’s no good. I hear you on speed reading, so you -know- when it’s going to work or not. If it takes me that long to get into a book I usually dump it because I have such an insane list of books to read. As I’m sure you do as well.

        How lovely that she quilts though! I have a friend who quilts and it just amazes me.

      • ooooh! The readalong sounds good! I’m kind of broke right now though. So, I can’t afford to purchase right now 😀
