Write On Review-a-Thon

I've had a bunch of reviews that need to be written rough form and since I'll have time tomorrow and probably won't want to do much else after being up for the Readathon, this will be the perfect activity to do.  Look forward to joining tomorrow :)

#readathon Update No 1

Since my work schedule has gotten in the way of me doing a complete readathon, I am doing it in chunks.  So for my first chunk, I read from the start at 5 am PT until about noon PT.  I got about 123 pages read and managed to complete The Narrow Road to the Deep North.  And then I took a bit of a break to get myself ready for my shift.

For the next chunk, I will probably do it from about midnight PT until 5 am PT.   I'll probably read Horrorstor.

24 Hour Readathon Spring 2015 Sign-up and Book Stack

As I look at the time on my PVR, I am realizing that it is almost time for the Readathon to start and I need to get to bed, if I wish to wake up at 5 am.

With that in mind, I will be short and sweet with this post.  This year is a little different for me since I got a new job in the last week and a half and can only read for a portion of the readathon this time around.  But still I will participate when I can.

So here are my books:

  • The Narrow Road to the Deep North (finish)
  • Vanessa & Her Sister
  • Moon over Manifest
  • Horrorstor
I am also going to watch some movies or TV as I read.  Happy Reading :)

Sit Down and Write 6 #sitdownandwrite

I realize that I am a bit late in signing up for this, but better late than not participating.  I am doing this because I have a number of book reviews to work on.  I hope that I can catch up on most, if not all of the books that I have to review.

Hopefully some of these reviews will appear here in the coming days.  Happy writing.

Saturday Snapshot - March 28

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Normally I don't share photos of my family here for a number of reasons, but I thought this would be an exception, as it has been shared a lot by me online.  I got this photo from my dad on Tuesday evening and I was quite surprised that I had never seen this photo. It is a photo of my Grandma Wiebe holding me in her last days, flanked by my cousins Sherida (darker hair) and Lorelle (blonde hair).  I never really knew my grandma, as she passed away when I was a little over six months old at the time.  It will be a photo I will definitely treasure.

Sunday Salon - Spring 2015 Bloggiesta

It's that time of  again when the lovely folks at Bloggiesta remind us bloggers that it is bloggiesta once again.

I realize that I have some readers wondering what is Bloggiesta and what is exactly done during this time?

To put it simply, it is that time of the year when bloggers put together a to-do list for their blog, whether it be a blog about reading or whatever else you blog about.  It basically is a blogging marathon  (aka spring cleaning) to improve your blog or to get things done that need to get done that you haven't done yet. So if you haven't caught up with your reviews from the past few months, this is
your chance to do so.  While the vast majority of people who participate are readers, those who blog on other subjects are also welcome. So if you blog about computers or sports or whatever else, you are welcome to join the rest of us.

My to-do list for this bloggiesta is pretty simple: catch-up on book reviews from January through March and link up with my reviews on Pinterest and update my currently read list on Pinterest as well.

If you wish to sign up, you can go to and sign up (or you can click the button). 

As for my week in reading, it wasn't really that great.  While I did read quite a bit from Shadows of the Night, The Color Purple and Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy, I didn't exactly finish anything.  I am hoping that I will finish at least something by this time next week (actually I do, as I have to get a book done for my book club, but none of the books stated above).

Hope you all have a good Sunday.
