Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts: February 12


Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts is a weekly meme hosted by Bookishly Boisterous.

Summer Secrets1.I've been reviewing books for NetGalley for awhile no, but my most exciting NetGalley moment definitely came this week when I got approved for Jane Green's new book, Summer Secrets. It's due out in June. I'm a huge fan of her books and was super excited to get approved for one of her books!

2. I discovered a new website! Thrift Books is a website for used books--and all orders over $5 ship for free!! If you sign up for their newsletter, you get a 10% off coupon code right off the bat. Excited to explore this website--their used books are very affordable!

3. My puppy turned 8 months old on Tuesday!! Weighing in at 50 pounds, he's not so little any more :)  Love this little dude so much!!

4. I apologize for the lack of blog posts lately, as I've been sick :( My husband gave me his lovely cold. Just in time for Valentine's Day! On the upside, this cold is much better than the flu he gave me for Christmas two years ago. Now THIS is real love, people!! Lol :)

5. I'm participating in the 2nd Annual Love for Books Readathon this week! Due to being sick, I haven't felt good enough to read nearly the amount I'd like, but I've still finished one book already and well on my way to my goal of two books. I love readathons!

6. For all you ladies out there like me that are  stressed out perfectionists, read this article.  It's really good.  Instead of beating ourselves up, let's celebrate all our awesome accomplishments!! This is something I need to remind myself of every day...life happens. Things aren't perfect....and that's OKAY! :)

Have a good Valentine's Day weekend, friends! Happy Reading!!!
