After participating in the October Netgalley readathon (albeit only mildly successfully w/just a couple of books…), I definitely wanted to do it again this January!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all! Even though Kristi @ The Story Siren isn’t posting an IMM today, I thought I’d still share the goodies I got this past week (because I’m PROBABLY not going to remember to include it in my next one, when I’m on my way home from NYC!)

As I had previously posted, I participated in 3 book blogging Secret Santa events – one of which I shared yesterday! So since it’s Christmas Eve, I thought I’d take this opportunity to share the goodies I got!

Well, this week’s Waiting on Wednesday has been quite the rage over the last week or so. The debut novel by Marissa Meyer is out on shelves January 3rd, and I actually have the ARC sitting right in front of me as I type this. I’m oh-so-tempted to read it now, but I wanted to […]

353/365: Weekly Photo Challenge – Self Portrait

This week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge theme is: Self Portrait. I took this picture of myself earlier this year when we just got the keys to our new place. No furniture, bare walls and the sun was starting to set. Thought my shadow looked really interesting, with the balcony doors & railing around me.
