2 Year Blog Anniversary + Giveaway!

That's right, this day back in 2014, I wrote my very first review. It's awful, I'm not even kidding. I couldn't even get through it. Not that my reviews are any better now... I'm so bad at proofreading that there is so many mistakes in my reviews it's not funny. So to all of you for reading  my reviews anyway. You guys are the most amazing people in the world and I love you all. If I could I would send you all free books for a year but I'm not that rich so I'm sorry. 

So on the blog this year there has been 165 posts which is 55 less than my first year. I did promoted from part time to full time and have had less time. I have read more books this year compared to the year before. 

I started a book meme this year with the help of Laura @Blue Eye Books. I'm so thankful for her help as without her the meme would never exist and I've had this idea for so long. So thank you Laura. 

This year we also finally moved into our own place, no longer living with anyone anymore so I'm so happy for that! 

Now, where I want to go in the next year... I've been thinking of this a lot. I want to read, I won't say I won't read more because I read a lot already and I'm very happy with my reading pace. I hope I don't get any reading slumps though! Those are the worst!

I will say that I want to finally get the courage to start selling my bookmarks on Etsy. I'm so scared to do that for fear of backlash and hate. 

Also as a thank you for staying by me for another year and to all the new friends that found me this year, this giveaway is for you! It is international. So may the odds be ever in your favor.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,
