  • Watched a new blog called squeaky books

  • started my “short stories corner” segment on blogger or atleast planned it

the Fall (the next 4 months)

I have been all go go go go go and overdosing on comics ( a total of 16 or so) and seeing as I have enough reviews to last me the full month of september I'm going to tread lightly with reading , take a break for a week or two and go back to my two books a month and read manga as a side thing. I have 84 books on my TBR shelf That is not counting the possibility of a combined total of 63 sequels for all the book ones in my list as well as spin offs thats also not counting sequels to manga. My plan is this start finishing series I have on my list not all of them mind you for example I can't finish nevermore, enclave, or timeless due to when they are released. But I hope to have (counting manga) at least 5 series finished before December. I'm also planing on being as creative this semester as ever and if everything goes as planned (haha) this is my loosey goosey plan for the next few months (in no real monthly order)



Poison diares1 and 2 (want to read book two before it comes out)

Chronicles of narnia books 1,3,6

King of thorn 2-6

13 to life 2 and 3

Silence (hush hush book 3)

Caster chronicles 2 and 3
