2019 Reading Challenges Attempted (And Slayed!)

Hi everyone! How did you do with your reading challenges for 2019? I decided to stick with just one challenge this past year–the Goodreads Challenge–because I needed to simplify a bit.

Waiting on Wednesday (81): Nemesis by Brendan Reichs

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. My pick this week: I just heard of this book about a month ago, and immediately added it to my to-read and must-read shelves on Goodreads. It just sounds really cool. I love Orphan Black (even  ...

Review: Enclave by Ann Aguirre

FTC Disclaimer: I purchased a copy of this book myself. I was in no way compensated for this review. Zombie Obsessed About a year ago, I watched The Walking Dead for the first time. I was so anti-zombie before that, and now I’m OBSESSED. So I’ve been trying to read a lot of zombie books, even if they’re not typical zombies.  ...
