Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts (15)

Hey! I'm linking up with the Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts at Bookishly Boisterous today!

1.) I want to read ALL the things right now despite having almost no time for reading.  I have been beefing up my library and goodreads lists and I'm so ready for work to die down and for my class to be over so I can jump into a ton of good books.

2.) I'm currently taking a class on the Holocaust right and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.  I'm learning about it in a way that is completely new and it's really fascinating.  That being said, it's more upsetting than I thought it would be.  Now that I have a kid, seeing pictures of children in ghettos or lined up with their mothers to be shot or go to the gas chambers is just a bit more than I can handle.  It makes it seem even more unimaginably awful then before.  (Sorry for that depressing tidbit.)

3.) I got a new job (!) and I start on Monday.  I'm now frantically trying to tie up all kinds of loose ends before Friday and I have no idea how everything is going to get done!

4.) I'm on a major ebook kick right now.  It's so much easier for me to read on my kindle/nook while on the treadmill or on my phone when I have a minute or two.  At least with life being so busy right now, physical books are just kind of a hassle.  I'm sure in a month or two, I'll be reading more physical books but I'm really thankful that there are multiple ways to read a book.  Thank you technology!

5.)  My little toddler is going to be 3 in June and I can't believe it.  It really does go by so fast.  I'm already planning her birthday party and have bought part of her gift; I'm just really excited for it.  We had a huge party last year and it was a little over the top so I think this year we're going to keep it much more simple.

6.) I have been absolutely terrible at blogging this year.  I'm really going to make a concerted effort to post more even if it's just once a week.

7.)  I swore that I was going to cut back (almost completely) on review books this year.  That is until I went on NetGalley a few days ago and found five or six books that I absolutely had to read.  Oops.  I'm really failing at my specific reading goals this year.

I hope you all have a great rest of the week!


  1. My son turns two this month and we are totally scaling things back. I did the whole shebang for his first birthday and while it turned out great, I admittedly didn't enjoy it as much as I had wanted because I was so busy playing host.

    1. Yes! I was so stressed out and busy trying to make sure everything was perfect that it wasn't very much fun for me.
