I’m back at work today after a near-perfect weekend of book shopping and reading. Check out my reading vlog from this past weekend here:
I had the most therapeutic retail therapy last Friday as I made my way home from staying with my parents while my dad had his heart surgery. (Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers <3).
I ended up having a giant anxiety attack when I got home Friday night anyway, which wasn’t entirely surprising considering how anxious I was last week before the surgery, however, I did have a very nice time shopping that afternoon before everything kind of came crashing down on me all at once.
Sorry to be such a downer in the beginning of this post, let’s move on to brighter topics like ALL THE AMAZING BOOKS I GOT!
It’s been so long since I bought brand new books, it was such a treat! Yay for my mom letting me use her Barnes and Noble membership and me getting my own Books-a-Million membership (Dear BAM, please don’t go out of business.) Also Yay for me finding an AMAZING indie bookstore that has Drag Queen Story Time. I found more amazing books there than I did at the other stores.
If you want more in-depth info about these picks, feel free to watch my corresponding video:
You know what I love the most about BookTube (aside from the awesome community)?The fact that I have an excuse to do my makeup and hair… but not actually have to go anywhere.
It’s the makeup-addict introvert dream. LOL!
Also, I get to experiment with colors that I probably wouldn’t dare try if I were actually going out in public. This time it was the gorgeous blue shade in the Jaclyn Hill Morphe palette that I’d never tried before.
Hang out with me through the second half of January as I rearrange my bookshelves (and add two more!), torture my husband because he had to unscrew them from the wall and build the new ones, haul way too many books from the library book sale and library book store, unbox some BookTube supplies and bookshelf knick knacks, go shopping, and, of course, read a bunch of (mostly) great books.
Happy reading my friends!
Yay for more BookTube videos!
I love BookTube Wrap Up videos, so I thought I’d give one a shot along with my regular wrap up blog post. You can check out the video here:
As I mentioned in previous posts, January was a fantastic reading month for me. I read a ton of 5 star books and added several books to my All Time Favorites list!
Below I’ve listed all the books I’ve read this month along with their star ratings. Stay tuned for full reviews (or watch the video for my thoughts!)
Hey there fellow book lovers!
I just wanted to pop in really quick to tell you that I uploaded a new Booktube video last night. You can check it out here or down below.
I have a corresponding post to this video here.
Let me know in the comments who your favorite Booktuber is! I’m currently obsessed with Meltotheany (who also happens to have one of my favorite book blogs of all time), A Clockwork Reader, and Novel Ink.
Well… I finally did it. I uploaded my first official BookTube video!
And, of course, it’s a haul for my first Book Outlet order when I went a little crazy with their Boxing Day sale.
For those who would rather read, I’ve also listed the books I hauled below. Enjoy!
Here are the books I hauled from Book Outlet
