What I'm Currently Reading #1


For along time now I have had a huge currently reading list on goodreads. Some of them I'm actually reading right now, some I started over a year ago and just have yet to go back to. Do you guys have any books on your TBR that you've started and haven't gone back to?

Anyways, I'm going to go down the list (in four parts across four weeks considering their are 20 books on the list) within this post and talk about each one. Including why I picked it up, why I haven't finished and if I think I'm going to. Let me know if you have had similar situations with any of these books or even if you have read and loved them!

1) Fatal Vision by Joe McGinnis 
I picked this one up for a few reasons:
1. I LOVE True Crime! (If any of you love it and could leave recommendations that would be great! I'm always looking for new titles to read)
2. My mom read this when she was my age and she really enjoyed it so I thought I would give it a try given the genre.
So in the end, I enjoyed this while reading but I think I started school at the same time I was getting into the trial part of the book and it shut me down a bit. But I do plan on getting back to it.






2) That Night by Chevy Stevens
I picked this up because I have an ARC and I wanted to read it before it came out. I loved what I read, but I didn't finish it before it came out so I put it down to finish other things. Again, I do plan on picking this back up eventually because I didn't get far into it and I have heard amazing things about this author.










3) College 101 by Julie Zeilenger
I picked this up a LONG time ago the summer before I started college. Now, I am a senior in college on my way to graduation in May of 2018 and I think reading this now would be kind of pointless. But I am thinking about applying and attending graduate school and if I do I might consider this again to get a fresh pair of eyes and start when the time for that comes.












4) Red Ink by Julie Mayhew
I picked this one up because I requested it for review when a seasonal list of ARCS from candlewick came out. I honestly cannot for the life of me remember what this was even about. Not because it was bad but because it's been so long. I do plan on picking this back up eventually, it's just not on the top of my list.











5) Kardashian Konfidential by Kardashians
I picked this up because at the time I was really into the Kardashians and I thought having their book was the coolest thing! I'll probably read through this some more but won't religiously read it cover to cover.

What I'm Up too + Questions for you!

Hey, Comfort Readers! I've been thinking lately and I've decided that I miss blogging so much. I never officially stopped but with college, and work I have been ridiculously busy. I get all hyped up and think I'm going to get back into this full force and just get discouraged and stop when I can't. But I feel especially motivated right now on this Friday night or Monday morning when you guys will be reading this, and so I've decided to come back to my first love and give it another shot. This time around though, I want to try things differently and I want you guys to let me know what you think.


I would really like to incorporate more than just books. Now before you all go crazy let me start by saying that I still love books way more than I love doing anything else. BUT I also am a huge fan of movies especially horror movies and I want to be able to incorporate that as well. At some point, I wish to have a page link that once you click on brings you to a customized looking horror movie page that branches off of this blog but for now everything is going to look a little rough around the ages until I can fund everything.


So what do you guys think? I'm sorry about the long bulky paragraphs but I am a writer and lots of words are just what I do. So I need one thing from you guys; I have a few questions for more seasoned and experienced bloggers. What do you guys do when you get into blogging slumps? How do you get fresh content other than the normal reviews? How do you get more following? I'm not so crazy about having a million followers, but I do want to be able to have insightful conversations with those who are checking out my content and as of now I'm not getting that so please do let me know your answers to those questions! Thanks, everybody, and for those still subscribed thank you for sticking with me!
