November 2019 wrap-up

Hi beauties! Where has the time gone? November went by so fast. November was sort of a crazy month for me since finals begin right away in December. That means more studying and less reading. I still managed to read quite a bit and even finished book that I had been reading for over a month. I read 6 book in total.

Here is what I read:

Overall, I am happy with the amount of books I managed to read this month. My finals are all 3 days a row in early December so I’m hoping to read even more in December!

How did you do in November? Let me know in the comments!

Reading update: I’m separated from my TBR!

So I took an early Thanksgiving break and came back home a little early. Now, I’m unexpectedly staying longer than I initially planned to. The issue? I only brought two books with me. And I just finished reading one of them. I just didn’t have the space in my carry ons to bring more books because I had to bring my law books, notebooks, and laptop to study. I had no room. 

Now I’m left with the other book I brought and a book that accidentally got mailed here to my old address. The rest of my 60+ TBR books got left behind. There were some books on there that I really wanted to start reading soon. I also left behind my other currently reading book.  

Now I’m in a dilemma of what to do after I finish these two books. Should I buy more books? Start an e-book? (I’m really terrible at reading those but maybe my desperation can change that) Or just wait until I get back?

Only time will tell! Stay tuned to see how this tragedy ends.

Rating: ★★★★

I received this book for free as part of an Instagram tour (TLC Book Tours specifically) I did to promote the book. 

This book was a lot of fun.

It reminded me a lot of Scream (one of my favorite horror films) so of course I loved this book.

I loved the performing arts theme and how it was woven throughout the novel.

The storyline was slightly predictable, but that’s just because it’s a slasher, and they tend to follow the same basic pattern (there’s a killer, people die in gruesome ways, there’s the big reveal at the end, etc.). Also, the characters weren’t all that interesting, but once again that is typical of a slasher.

That being said, the endings of horror books tend to make or break them, and I was not disappointed by the ending of this book. The reveals at the end were good, but the epilogue really took it to the next level. The author ended the book perfectly. 

As for the scare factor, this book isn’t that scary (I’m actually a pretty big scaredy cat and had no trouble reading this at night). The only word of caution I have is that there is some gore and violence (hello, it’s a slasher).

Overall, this is a great book to read if you are looking to get into the Halloween spirit and want to read a fun slasher. 

Yet another blogging/life update

Hey everyone! I’m back with another update for you all.

This week I posted 3 reviews which I am super happy about. But tomorrow I embark on part 2 of my move which means I probably won’t be posting anything here for at least a week. I do have two scheduled blog tour posts going up during that time so there will still be some activity on my blog.

After part 2 of my move I will be coming back to my old place (my parent’s house) for another 2 weeks because I will taking a short vacation at the beginning of August. And then the week after that I will be going to my new place and staying there permanently. So basically it’s going to be a lot of back and forth these next weeks. So thank you all for bearing with me!

Gratitude

It’s been well over a year since I started bookstgramming and a little over 6 months since I started book blogging and I just wanted to stop and take some time express my gratitude to the bookish community.

When I restarted my bookstagram (I had one back in 2015/2016 but deleted it), I never thought I would get more than 400 followers. Now I’m at 2.6K and am utterly amazed by it. So many doors have opened for because of my bookstagram and I am so grateful for it. I’ve gotten review opportunities and have participated in a bunch of Instagram tours because of it. Same thing with my blog. Having a blog made getting review requests so much more easier. I absolutely love reviewing books and promoting them, so all of this has been a dream come true!

And then of course I want to say thank you to all my wonderful bookish friends I’ve meet through all of my bookish sites. It’s phenomenal connecting with bookworms from all over the world. You guys are the best!

Once again, THANK YOU for taking the time to read this and for supporting me in all my bookish endeavors!

xoxo,

Book blogging update

I recently did a reading update and I thought it was time now for a blogging one too. I’ve been blogging for about three months now and my little blog has grown so much in that time.

When I first started, I posted review after review after review. Now, I’m still posting a lot of reviews, but I’m finding a balance between reviews and non-reviews. I hope to continue this and strike a better balance as the year goes on.

I was so happy to discover that I received over 1,000 views in the month of March. That’s not a lot compared to some people, but it  such a milestone for me. This month I probably won’t reach 1,000 views, but I’m still happy with how it’s doing. I just want to say thank you to everyone who reads and follows my blog!

Looking ahead to the coming months things should still be the same. However when late July/August hits, things may start to slow down since I will be starting law school. I will make a blog post with updates as we get closer to August.

That’s it! Once again, thank you for taking the time to read this.

xoxo,
