You know when you have those weeks where you feel like you did so much but accomplished nothing…that was January. I wish I could say I slept through it but with School projects, cheerleading clinic and getting some things sorted for ourselves this month went by so super fast and I still feel like I accomplished nothing. My To-Do List just seems so much longer than when the month started but I am feeling really good and thing February will be a productive month. Remind me of this if I say it wasn’t. 😉

I did it, I am not saying it will happen but NO ONE kept me off of pet finder and I found two kittens I want so badly but I am not sure our house is the right fit for them. They need a calm environment and that is not here but we would provide lots of love, attention and spoil them rotten. I sent an email and we are waiting to hear back. If they say no then I will be waiting until September to officially look again. If they say yes you bet your ass I will have LOTS of pictures.

Blogging and Updates:

This weekend was Bloggiesta and the second COYER twitter party. So I did a lot of organizing and drafting posts. I am hoping to have enough drafted that it will help me get ahead. Bloggiesta always tends to make me feel super blogging and this weekend is no different. Now if I can just get a few more hours in a day that would be perfect. 😀

I am getting excited about the ideas Berls and I have for Bloggiesta and feel like we can get it back to what it used to be. It’s a great way to get ahead and get all those things done on your blog or even to get ahead on posts.

My blog is 5 years old. I did a fun post this week with all the stats in the last 5 years. It was fun to look back and I can’t believe the blog is 5.

My TBR List Post went up on Saturday and if you have a moment, would love if you could stop by and vote on my next read for February. I would greatly appreciate it! 🙂

Bookish News:

I was reading Spindle Fire but as much as I LOVED the characters the story started to go so slow I couldn’t even read the book without falling asleep, so I set it aside for now and plan to go back, I think.

It was time to go in a different reading direction and I think it will be fantasy for a little bit. My current read is exactly what I needed and I have a feeling if I love it like I think I might, I will be getting the rest of the series very soon. This book will count toward my Bookish Resolutions to read 3 trilogies this year.

Currently Reading

Really need to work on my goodreads goal since it’s giving me a little anxiety telling me I am 6 books behind! Relax, goodreads, it’s only February, I still have plenty of time! 🙂

What I grabbed:

Thank you Shadow Mountain Publishing

Got two review books from one of my favorite publishing companies. I am loving their Proper romance books and recently read one of their Middle Grade which was pretty good also so I am looking forward to these.

Last Week on the Blog:

What you might see this week:

I am working on some posts and scheduling stuff so I am not sure what I will have for the week yet.


So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?

Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!

Happy Reading

  1. That feeling is so annoying when you feel like you do a lot and accomplish nothing. I hope February is more productive.

    I hope you get those kittens and yes share lots of pictures if you do get them and keep us updated!

    Congrats on your blog being 5 years :). My blog was 5 years last December. It’s fun to realize we started blogging so close together.

    Sometimes reading a totally different genre is just what you need. I hope you keep enjoying your current read. Wizard for Hire looks great! I hope it’s a good one. Have a great week!

  2. Hope you get the kittens– the 2 must be bonded, so they’ll keep each other company, even if your house is less than calm 🙂 I always had random furbabies and other critters living with us, and the vast majority fit in after awhile.

    I voted for your next book– not saying which, but let’s just say others agree with my choice, too.

    Congrats on the blog anniversary! Way to go!

    • It’s crazy how fast it went by, I still have a list of things I wanted to do. I need to better organize this month.
      Don’t worry I will have TONS of pictures! 🙂
