Update

Hey y’all

Apparently I’m awful at this. 😂

Life has been kicking my butt from SC to Timbuktu and back lately and it’s been hard to get anytime to gather my thoughts enough to really do a good blog post.

I plan on updating y’all on my N.E.W.T.S (I passed!) and doing a Nevernight review. I also have an interview with an author to do, so be on the look out.

In the mean time, I have a library haul to show you!

Be good to one another.

All my Love,

Kat

Life Update:

Hey y’all!

So I’ve been post absent. I completed my Reading Rush! I meant to post updates every day but life happened.

I went into mania. I have Bipolar 1 disorder, and go through 2 long bouts of mania a year. If you don’t know what that’s like it’s basically like your brain being a hamster on a wheel and the hamster is on crack. It can also lead to paranoia and excessive irritation. So my moods have been everywhere, as well as my brain being all over the place.

On top of that, my partner and I are moving into a bigger apartment with our roommate so we’ve been packing and prepping for that, along with getting our 3rd grader ready for school again.

As for reading, I’m almost done with Pillow Thoughts (poetry) and The Wrath and the Dawn for my N.E.W.T.S. Not enjoying TWATD like I was hoping I would and most likely will DNF. My partner and I just DNF’d Little Heaven by Nick Cutter because we didn’t like the short stories.

Once we get through the move, I plan on sitting down and planning updates and writing updates. Bear with me.

The Reading Rush Day One

Hey Y’all!

So I had a low spoon day, and slept a good portion of the day. However, I did manage to complete the first challenge!

I read all of “Glass” by Ellen Hopkins. It was a reread so I could annotate because I love how she uses words in her writing. It was just as good the second time around.

Unfortunately the website still isn’t working for me, but hopefully soon! Badges here I come!

How was your first day!?

Daisy Jones and the Six

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Taylor Jenkins Reid hit it out of the park, again. Holy cow, y’all.

Okay, so I didn’t think that I would like this as much as I loved Evelyn Hugo. I know this got rave reviews from fans, but it also got some less than rave reviews compared to Evelyn Hugo, so I went in skeptical.

I had tried the audio book and just couldn’t focus enough on it to be grabbed by it. So I wasn’t expecting to be so complete absorbed by the physical book.

This book is sheer perfection. I loved it. 4/5 stars. I can hear the angst in their songs. I can hear all the music in my head. The thought of character development and emotions that TJR puts into her work is astounding. She makes you feel everything and that’s the very thing I love about words.

Another hit! I need this band and the album like I need air to breathe.

The Reading Rush: My TBR

Hey Y’all!!!

Happy Sunday!

Tomorrow kicks off The Reading Rush!!! Are y’all ready?? You can add me as a friend (please do!) at RavenCatReads!

Here is my probably overly ambitious TBR for it:

1. Glass by Ellen Hopkins

2. Cheshire Crossing (GN)

3. Saga (GN)

4. Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan

5. Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

6. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

7. Harry Potter (any book) by JK Rowling

I read pretty fast, and have a road trip so I am hoping I can knock out all the books. If not, oh well!!!

What are you guys reading?

Good luck and my the odds be ever in your favor!!!! ❤️
