Kat and I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus; between family events, moving and maybe just feeling a general spring time slump. We are back and ready to jump back in. But even when I’m away from blogging, books will always find a way into my daily life.
Book Shelf 3.0
When Kat and I moved to a new apartment we kind of knew the white RE Target Book shelf 2.0we’d been using were on their last legs so they had to get left behind
Instead Kat and I took some time to seriously downsize our book collection. We each keep our own personal collections and stow a few in this versatile Target Threshold Cube Organizer. Some books are on display and some are stowed in the canvases.I like to space my collection out, some are snug in this
Threshold Storage Cabinet and a few take residence on my desk.
When I first started book blogging I wanted to have ALL the books. But honestly, My physical TBR pile was getting out of hand. I had to learn to let go of books that I could get at the library or in e-format. I told myself it was okay to let of signed books if the book/author didn’t resonate with me.
What I’ve Been Reading
I’ve also been doing a TON of audiobooking. I started listening to Joanna Fluke’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder while unpacking and Tessa Dare’s A Week To Be Wicked while in the car hauling stuff across town. While taking a little roadtrip to a small family reunion I finished up with Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn and started Black Water Rising by Attica Locke. Because books being turned into movie makes me read them I started You Before Me by Jo Jo Moyes.
Yes, I’m on kind of a mystery kick.
I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of blogging. I want to start contributing more to Mocha Girls reads and finishing up some reviews. I also can’t wait to do some prep for BookExpo America, One way or the other I’m meeting Laini Taylor !
