Personal Update:

Not much to report on, still just enjoying my time away from school. I can’t believe I am actually going to admit this, but I miss my studies! On the other hand, I did make a trip to Barnes and Noble this past week so there is a book haul coming your way shortly. I am just trying to fill my time with as much reading as I possibly can!

Personal Update:

I am done with my summer courses and I am now in full relaxation mode! This past year I have been kicking butt at college and I have been fighting to hold onto my 4.0. It has been rough but I am finally able to take a step back for the next two months and enjoy the warm weather and all of the fabulous books on my shelves!

Sunday Post: A Catch Up/What’s Been Going On

Hi reader fam! I miss you all so much. Today’s post is a bit of an informational post just letting you know what’s been up and why I haven’t been too active.

As some of you may now I have started college! It is pretty exciting and the campus that I have my classes on is HUGE. I’ve only fallen once too so that’s pretty good for my clumsy record lol. I am also holding a job which takes up the rest of my days. It’s been hectic trying to balance that and school so everything else so far has been put on hold.

With those two things taking up all of my time reading has sadly (it truly breaks my heart) been on the back burner. I’ve been dying to write/read and all of the motivation has been sucked up. I’ve been going through a bout of a reading slump… it happens every year around this time; I exert myself the beginning of summer and than have no will to continue on.

I am hoping that when September comes (oh my gosh we’re almost in September! YIKES) that my reading slump will go away. Lots of books that I’m excited to read come out in September so I have very high hopes.

I will be more active on my blog in the coming months ahead as I find some much needed balance. I would like to say a massive thank you to each and everyone of you that follow this blog/like/read my posts. You all mean the world to me!

I just wanted to fill you guys in on whats been happening behind the books and screen in case anyone was wondering. If not and you’ve read this post still, I hope that this has shed some light for you as well.

I have some exciting things planned for this blog in the coming months so please stay tuned! Also, if anyone has some great book recommendations please send them in. This reading slump is destroying me!!!

I hope that you have all had a great week-end and I wish you all lovely weeks ahead.

-Samantha 🙂

Personal Update: 

Work work work work….. That is what my life has become! This past week I had very long shifts that I had to get used to so those took up all my time. I have made some new coworker friends so that is making it much more fun! Other than that nothing else is new for me.

Personal Update:

I made it through my first week of work!!!! Ahhh what a week it was. I have been overwhelmed and an anxious mess since I started so I can only hope that lessens as time moves forward. I apologize for the lack of posts this week, I will be catching up this coming week.

I am enjoying what I am doing and everyone has been so kind, for that I am lucky. My people person persona is popping up more and more!

Thanks to Regan from PeruseProject over on Youtube I have decided to pick up this novel!

Synopsis via Goodreads: 

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals.

But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he’s willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.


I hope you all have an amazing week ahead!

Personal Update:

This week was yet another boring week for me! I had lunch with a good friend but other than that I have been enjoying the nice warm weather and getting some much needed vitamin D.

Also, tomorrow is the first day of my job!!! EEP! I’m a bundle of nerves right now since this will be my first job/day on the job. A large part of me is anxious (what’s new?) and the other, smaller, part of me is excited. I feel that I am looking forward to getting out of the house and meeting some new people.

Personal Update: 

Not too much to went on this week for me! I have started to write again which has me in better spirits. I think that having this blog had something to do with it. Writing is a passion of mine and one day I hope to pursue it as a career and this is just another step for me to achieve that goal.

This week we also reached 15 followers so thank you! It means so much to me that people read/follow/enjoy this blog. My love goes out to all of you!

Voyager is the continuation of Jamie and Claire’s love/story. Jamie’s memory never left Claire and now that she knows everything she ever thought about his history to be wrong she must make decisions and choose her destiny, two things that won’t only effect her but also those she loves around her.
