July Update


Hey, Bibliogeeks!



I'm here to check in and let you know that July is going to be a bit of a slow blogging month (if you haven't yet noticed the lag). I have a few posts scheduled this month but getting my draft edited before the end of July is a priority, because things are going to go to crazy town in a few months with wee one on the way.


 Our little bibliophile to be will make his debut  in 9.5 weeks!

I plan to have a number of reviews lined up to go for August, so you'll see the posts begin to pick up starting around then.

I will continue to remain pretty active on Goodreads, Instagram, and Twitter - so catch me there and let's have a chat about books!

And don't forget about the summer giveaway!

Month In Review - June 2016

Happy July, Book Babes!

To start off the new month here's a recap of LAST month.


Slow Month - I gave myself a slow month so that I'd have plenty of time to be preparing for the very busy summer. There's a LOT going on over the next couple of months and I didn't want to be in a rush to prepare for all of it at the last minute, so I let June be leisurely on the reading front. I'm 2 books ahead of my yearly goal break-down at the moment, so I've got some wiggle room! I participated in Tome Topple and read 3 of my 500+ page books, which was a considerable win for me! I also read a lot of graphic novels in an effort to catch up on my Graphic Novel reading challenge for 2016, but overall I took it easy! July is a month of vacations so I'll be reading a lot and enjoying the summer-time.


Biblio Bebe - We're getting little boop's room together a little at a time and this month we've had fun painting and putting together the crib. I set up a little reading nook in there for story times. You can see a picture of it down in the Instagram section! Looking forward to buying LOTS of new storybooks for our little bibliophile to be!
