October TBR

My TBR is pretty fluid but I do stay on track for the most part thanks to my reading tracker. And audiobooks–I’ve been able to finish so many books this way! (I’d give you a percentage on my completion rate before and after I started listening to audiobooks, but I’m not going to even pretend that I can math right now. Or ever. But it’s a lot.).

And just so you know, in case you can’t already tell, I will read almost anything (nonfiction is still a struggle for me). YA is my favorite but I also love fantasy (middle grade, YA, and Adult).

.

But in the last two months I’ve branched out into two genres that I haven’t tried–Political thriller and Stephen King. I picked up the Mitch Trapp series by Vince Flynn and so far I’m really enjoying it. And yes, I think Stephen King is his own genre. I’m reading Revival (for the #grimdragon Read Along), IT (buddy read with @zoetzure) and The Drawing of Three (bc I want to know what’s going to happen to Roland). The only writing convention his books conform to is his own distinct style of storytelling and his flawed characters that you can’t help cheering for. You really can’t put King in one genre which is really quite brilliant. (Clearly, I’m still in the honeymoon stage of discovering a new to me author. Let’s see what happens when the gang returns to Derry or Roland gets to the Dark Tower or what’s Reverend Jacob’s sermon going to be before he leaves.)

.

How do you pick your TBR? Have you tried any new to you authors lately that surprised you?

Pre-birthday celebration with my sister today–lunch and a book signing! Have a great day!

Bullet Journal Challenge: My “why” 

If you’re new here, HELLO! Besides reading and writing, I’m a total planner girl! I started using a planner in college to try to keep up with assignments and tests. I continued using one when I was a teacher and eventually moved on to bullet journaling. I have a Leuchtturm 1917 @leuchtturm1917 notebook for my writing and reading life. I also use a Traveler’s Notebook for real life planning..

Both of these systems work so well for the different aspects of my character. I commend those who can keep it all in one place. I like clearly defined work areas. My writer self loves having the LT1917 which stays on my desk and comes out when I’m writing. My mommy self loves the portability of the TN and also having different inserts to organize appointments and other household items.

.

Pictured are some of my favorite tools: I’m loving the Papermate Inkjoy gel inks @papermate_inkjoys and of course washi tape. My current on deck choices are fall/Halloween style tapes. I found these particular styles at Target, Michaels, and Daiso. Also pictured is the Supernatural themed “Yesterday was Tuesday, right?” notepad from the September @nerdy.post. I love having notepads on hand to jot down tasks for later.

.

How’s your Saturday going? I checked out The Lightening Thief audiobook from the library and my older sons LOVE it. I’ve been playing it for them all morning and they do not want to do anything else, but listen! This day has been long in coming. I’m so glad I can share this series with them now.
