Reading Wrap Up // October 2017

I read four books this month.. and it would seem like October wasn't a good reading month for me if you just looked at the number of books I read, but who cares if I only read four books this month!?! Actually - me, I care, and I talked about why I think my reading was so low this month in a video. Check it out here. Regardless, I picked some winners this October and really enjoyed all of the books I did manage to read! Keep reading to find out about the awesome books I read in October, or watch the video above!


Social Media and Reading // The Struggle and A Giveaway!!!



I had a really rough reading month this October. I found myself in a reading slump induced by social media, and I don't like. I hate that I am choosing mindless social scrolling over my love of reading. How did this happen!?! In the video above I chat about how I noticed the problem and some things I am planning to do this November to try and fix it. One of the things I am trying this month is reading books by authors I love, such as JoJo Moyes. Check out the giveaway I am hosting for her book of short stories, "Paris for One" by visiting the Rafflecopter giveaway linked in the video above.

Do you struggle with balancing social media, blogging, and the online book world with your love of reading? How do you juggle all of the things? Let me know below in the comments!

Spooky Scary Book Tag




YAY! and also BOO! for spooky book tags :) This tag was originally created by Clever Fox. Check out her video here! I don't read "scary" books that often, so I had to dig deep for this tag! BUT! I thought of some *great* books that I don't get to talk about very often because I read them a while ago or they just haven't naturally popped up for me to mention. So I'm excited to have the opportunity to share them with you! Keep reading for my "spooky" answers or watch the video above!

ThredUp Haul



I think I can count on one hand the number of times I have posted something unbook-ish. But this was just one of those times! I had to share! I have watched a million ThredUp haul videos and decided it was time that I try ordering some items myself - this website is a total game changer. I love the sustainability aspects of it, and also the amazing deals! Check out the video above for all of the items that I got, how I think they fit, what items I want to keep, and what I'll be returning!

For the full scoop, check out the video above, or just keep reading!
