Review Tour + Giveaway | Carry Me Home by Jessica Therrien

Carry Me Home was a book I knew I wanted to review, the synopsis had me intrigued and I was ready to dive in. Even though the synopsis mentions that the story is told in three point of views. Multiple point of views are some of my favorite books to read but it seems like it really works or it doesn’t. For Carry Me Home, I was actually surprised to see the Mother had a point of view. That is something I haven’t read before and I actually liked it. […]

My Anti-Haul  (#1)

Welcome to my first Anti-Haul post! I saw this on Taryn’s blog and thought it would be kind of fun to show the books I don’t plan on buying but maybe borrowing from the library. Truth be told, I haven’t really bought many books lately and I may do a post about that soon. But today, I’m showing you the books I don’t plan on buying this time around. My Anti-haul Turtles All The Way Down by John Green Reason: I’m not sure about this one, John Green is very […]

MyTBRList | October 2017 Poll

My TBR List is hosted by Michelle from Because Reading. Each month you select 3 books and have your readers vote for the one they think you should read. The poll goes up on the first Saturday, the results are announced the next Saturday and the review goes up on the last Saturday. I began my September BOTM but it expired before I could finish (I literally read like 2-3 pages) and the waitlist for it was about 10 people so I wasn’t able to actually read it. For October, […]

I’m Reading But I’m Not Reviewing | A Discussion-ish

I’m going through a phase where I’m reading a ton of books and some of them are even really good books but I don’t want to review them. Honestly, it’s part I don’t want to review them part I can’t remember how to write a review. Here are some of the reasons I’m currently enjoying just reading and NOT reviewing. Some of the books I’ve read are hyped books (think When Dimple Met Rishi) and I felt like many people have already read the book and my review won’t matter. […]

A Bit Of A Disappointment | Cinderella by Chloe Perkins

I’m not entirely sure how I discovered that Chloe Perkins had written the fairy tales with a twist. But I knew I couldn’t wait to read these to the little ones. When I saw the library had Cinderella and Snow White, I immediately put them on hold at the library. The illustrations in Cinderella are absolutely beautiful. They are colorful and include such a beautiful images of the Mexican culture; I couldn’t wait to read this story with a twist. A story that my girls would relate to. The problem […]

My Absolute Favorite Bullet Journal Set Up Ever (October 2017)

Welcome to another As Planned By Tina! Today I’m showing my October 2017 set up and as you can see as the title of blog post. It is my absolute favorite set up yet. I’m a very Halloween/Fall type person. I love hoodies, I love the skulls and darkness of it all. I think it’s mainly because I relate to it but also because it’s my favorite time of year. Before I begin planning each month, I tend to flip through my almost completed month. My September bullet journal setup […]

Release Day Blitz | Take The Lead by Alexis Daria

Take The Lead is Alexis Daria’s debut novel and a pretty good debut at that. Take the Lead is centered around Gina and Stone who are competing on a reality TV competition similar to Dancing with the Stars. This is the second book that I’ve read that has dealt with reality TV, the other one is Kissed by Reality by Carrie Aarons but that is more of a bachelor style book. One of my favorite things about Take The Lead is that I felt like I was watching the show […]

A Monthly Recap | The September 2017 Recap

Welcome to my September 2017 Recap. A Monthly Recap is exactly what it sounds like, a recap of the month. I’ll be recapping books I read, posts of the month, a little bit of what’s going on outside the blog, and a little bit of what I have plan in the upcoming month. I’ll be linking up my monthly wrap to Feed Your Fiction Addiction.
