August Colorful Bingo Board

How have you all been? What new books have you read and enjoyed?

I think I might be getting out of my slump. Fingers crossed! I read two count them 2 books this month! They were highly anticipated books and neither disappointed. The first was Witchshadow by Susan Dennard and A House of Rage and Sorrow by Sangu Mandanna. But more on that in another post. Right now I’m here to talk about August’s bingo board. Its one of my faves🌟

Take a gander:

Isn’t it gorgeous😍 I hope you have fun using it. Don’t forget to tag me😊

June Bingo Board || General Updates, 1 Year Anniversary

Hey is this thing on? Hello everyone long time no post. The last month and a half has been hectic to say the least. I’ve read nothing so it’s made coming on here the last thing I want to do. I have no content to provide for you. 😦 I’m so sorry for the lack of comments and interaction. I haven’t been in a good spot to interact.

I still wanted to post my June Bingo Board because I have enjoyed making these even though I haven’t used my last two.

I figured I would also take this time to update on a few things since I don’t know when I will be able to post again. It’s been a whole year today since I started this blogging journey and I already failed😅😆  I didn’t post my first post until June but I signed up in May. I’m hoping to get back soon because I have posts planned but not finished/ we will see.

I don’t want to go into many details just that life is weird and annoying right now and my mental health has taken a hit. And it has made motivation and content nonexistent. In more upbeat news I got a kitten take a look

His favorite pastimes are sleeping, eating and annoying his older sisters lol

I am somewhat consistent (as in a post at least once a week and use the stories feature)over on Instagram @PasteGreetings. I’m debating on making it more books and crafts because right now it’s just crafts. Buuut that means more work and commitments that I don’t think realistically I can do. That’s been the problem with this content I have no time and no motivation. 😑

I hope all of you are doing well and I hope to get to your posts real soon💙 Thanks for sticking with me!

Books I Forgot About

This could also be titled Series I want to Finish but I have to Start All Over. lol Not all of these are series but a couple are and I kind of want to finish them?? I say this like that because it’s been years since I picked up the first book and all of sudden I’m like I want to read those now. I doubt I’ll prioritize them but I thought this would make for an interesting topic.

Has this happened to you? One year you don’t want to continue the series and then BAM! You want too.

I didn’t rank these in any particular order. Sometimes I’m structured and sometimes I fly by the seat of my pants LOL

The first book on my list is

Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)

Graceling by Kristin Cashore, I own Fire & I remember a little more of it but Graceling I only have vague recollection of the first chapter and that’s it.

I apparently read it in January of 2015, I don’t own it but I really want to re-read the series before reading Winterkeep.

Like I said I remember next to nothing so it will be like reading it for the first time lol

The Young Elites (The Young Elites, #1)

The Young Elites by Marie Lu

I’ve only read this first book which was back in Christmas of 2014

I just remember being less than enthused with the ending. It soured my experience because I felt I could see where this story was going based on a previous experience with this author.

All that being said, I kind of want to finish it. Maybe. lol

Flamecaster (Shattered Realms, #1)

Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima

I made a HUGE mistake. I read this book before reading the first series. It seemed like I was never going to get my hands on the Demon King and that whole quartet. This book was on sale and I thought I could get away with it. So I read this and then got my hands on the Seven Realms series LOLLL

I want to continue with this series and this world but something devastating happens to a character I love 😦 I don’t want to read it again with what I know now 😦 ;(

Poison Study (Study, #1)

Poison Study by Maria V. Synder

I didn’t love this like everyone else but I did grow to enjoy it. It’s just a really long series with a bunch of spinoffs and I wasn’t ready for the commitment lol

I remember the very beginning & the ending but nothing in between.

I’m also interested to see how my opinions will change.

Empire of Sand (The Books of Ambha, #1)

Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri

I just read this back in early 2020 and I didn’t LOVE it liked I’d hoped. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed the hell out of it buuut I just didn’t become a die hard. I think this is due to high expectations and reading it as an ebook. Sometimes my lack of enjoyment is due to how I read the book.

I want to read it again and really absorb it!

Gods of Jade and Shadow

Gods of Jade & Shadow by Silvia Moreno- Garcia

I read this in November of 2019 & I loved it!

This is less of I don’t remember it as much as it is I haven’t read since then because I don’t own a physical copy.

I remember this being a trip (literally) and I want to experience it again.

Have you read any of these?

Thanks for reading!!
