Bookmark: Autumn Leaves

Since I collect bookmarks, thought it would be fun to showcase some of my collection!
(Inspired by Guiltless Reader's Bookmark Monday series)

Took part in a bookmark swap recently and this was the gorgeous bookmark I received! Tawnee also included a cute card and some confetti.

Love that she used words for the background!

Here's a close-up of the picture she used.
Such a pretty Fall theme!

Reminds me of the London Bridge rhyme!

Didn't she do an awesome job?
Love it!

October 2017 Wrap Up

My month in review. Let's see how I did!

Books read

In order to meet my Goodreads goal of 100 books, I need to read 8.33 books per month. According to Goodreads, I've read 5 books this month and am 3 behind schedule. Oops! Here are my books this month:

  1. Buzz Books 2017 YA Fall/Winter
  2. Accidental Mermaid by Dakota Cassidy
  3. Strange Weather by Joe Hill
  4. What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton
  5. Wicked Dead by Rick Gualtieri

October Reviews


Overall


Another mediocre month. Took part in the Blog Ahead Challenge hosted by Anna at Herding Cats & Burning Soup, but only managed a few posts. But like Scarlett O'Hara used to say...Tomorrow is another day!

My Book Haul 10/28/2017

36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You by Vicki Grant, Accidental Mermaid by Dakota Cassidy, Breach of Containment by Elizabeth Bonesteel, Demon Freaks by JRRR Hardison, and Wicked Dead by Rick Gualtieri
In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information.

For Review:


Read an excerpt of this one and enjoyed it, so requested a copy when I saw it offered via the Amazon Vine review program. Reminds me a little of an old Big Bang Theory episode!

36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You by Vicki Grant
36 Questions That Changed My Mind About You by Vicki Grant

Inspired by the real psychology study popularized by the New York Times and its "Modern Love" column, this contemporary YA is perfect for fans of Eleanor and Park.
