{Starting Post+Goals} Take Control of your TBR Pile 2015! #TakeControlTBR

It’s finally here! I have been so excited for this event for multiple reasons. (I stole the reasons from my post last year because they all still apply 😉 ) 1) I LOVE Kimba. Seriously this lady is great. She is one of my very favorite bloggers, and her events are lots of fun. 2) my TBR pile is SCARY! for real. So I am taking control this month! AND YOU SHOULD TOO! There will be read-a-thons, giveaways, and lots of little challenges and fun things along the way. Join in! Get more information about the event and sign up over at Kimba’s blog. You can sign up HERE I’m not as prepared this year as I was last year. Last year I scheduled my whole month around my TBR but this year I am kind of winging it, so I do have some ARC reviews that won’t count towards this challenge, but any help that I can get with my TBR is great by me. I made a goodreads… Read more »

#BoutofBooks Read-A-Thon Updates!

Button by TaraSG Ok, ok I know what you must all be thinking. ANOTHER read-a-thon???! Are you crazy Michelle? Probably, but that is not the point.

That means reading my butt off!  I have school Monday-Thursday and I have Halloween festivities to partake in this weekend but I still hope to get more than my average amount of reading done. We will see how it goes. Here is some information about event: Quick Reminders Sign up! I will leave sign-up open through Friday 10/28.
