BA’s Reading Journal for 2013

Finally, it’s that time for me to tidy out my journal once more and begin afresh! I love a good dose of organisation and cleanliness, so here is my reading journal for the year of 2013. You can find my reviews for 2014 in Reviews for 2014, but if you’d like to see what I read as I go, you can see my reading journal on Bonnie Sparks Writes.

The books read are rated by 1-5 hearts with an * to denote a half added, as follows;

  1. – Sleeping material or DNF
  2. ♥♥ – Not my kind of thing
  3. ♥♥♥ – Average with good traits
  4. ♥♥♥♥ – Entertaining
  5. ♥♥♥♥♥ – Loved it
Only reviews listed by title will show ratings. Continue reading

BA News: Coming up, My Life with BA, Reading Challenges, & Posting Challenge

Hello book lovers! November is not kind to my blogging habit and I mostly abandoned blogging for four-five weeks. Time, and my obsession with my novel’s word count, got the better of me. My plans to blog regularly disappeared and I ended up with a few scattered scheduled posts.

I have mentioned in the past I am behind on everything, but guess what? I’m still behind and now even more so. With NaNo, and life, I haven’t been reading much. My life is far more involved and busy than it has been in a very long time. My issue now with being able to read is not about if I’m well enough to read, but if I have the time to read.

Time to read and time to blog. Continue reading

2013 Challenge Round Up: October’s Reviews Part Two

It’s time for October’s round up of your reviews for BA’s 2013 challenges (to clarify, these reviews are for the year so far, just with October’s added). Monday was for Free Reads and Dystopia, now today is for Get Steampunk’d and Off the Shelf. There’s over three hundred for Off the Shelf. We really do love to keep our books unread for awhile don’t we?

See what everyone else is reading, read their thoughts, and maybe you’ll discover something new to read with books, blogs, or both. Find all review round-up posts here. Continue reading

2013 Challenge Round Up: Off the Shelf’s Reviews for September and Wrap-Ups

It’s time for September’s round up of your reviews for BA’s 2013 challenges (to clarify, these reviews are for the year so far, just with September’s added). From now on the round-ups are going to be a little different. They’re going to include completion posts! I’ve noticed a few of you have finished the challenges and begun sharing your reading lists for them, so I thought I’d share them with everyone else.

I attempted to divide the links, but I’m not savvy enough with coding. So, I’ve placed the wrap-up one first because of the sheer volume of links for reviews!

Off the Shelf Wrap-Ups for 2013

Congratulations on finishing Mrs A and Angie! These two are hopefully the first of many to complete their challenges!
