Monday Madness

Hello, wonderandians. I hope you all had a great weekend. I celebrated Chanukah this weekend. It was fun and not something I have done in years. My mothers family is Jewish so when I was younger would celebrate. Today starts the first day of the smutathon. This is round two,. It was started by Riley Marie and Lainey. I will be making a vlog about how that is going. I have so much that I have to get done. One of my final projects is due by the end of this week.

Not a long post I know but I will be posting some later on today that I’m really excited about! So please stay tuned. 

Thank you for joining me here in our little part of wonderland. Please don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out, 

Until next time 

Much love 

Happy Reading

TBRs And Why I Suck At Them

Hello, wonderlandians. Happy Monday and my first official day of posting on a regular schedule again. I have taken about a two week break from posting on this blog. I became so overwhelmed with everything going on personally. Also, I need to take a break to finalize everything for when I go back to school. So for my post back I thought it would be a good idea to write about my TBR problems. As fellow readers I am sure you have similar problems with them.

TBRs and why I SUCK at them

This has been a question that has plagued my mind for many years now.

1 –  I can’t stick to it.

Every time. I sweat it’t like I am allergic to my TBR. See I am mood reader so I my list usually consists of books that I could be in the mood for just based on books i have been reading at that time. When it comes time to actually read those books I have moved on to something new and the cycle starts all over again.

2 – Shiny New Book Syndrome

We all get new books. There are new releases everyday. I am one who loves e-books so there are releases everyday. This makes it really hard to stick to the TBR list I have made for that month. I want to read the new one that I have just bought. I have a theory that my unicorn children are putting magic on all of the new books that is where this syndrome comes from. This is still unproven. It’s a work in progress.

3 – Read-a-thons

There are so many that happen for the year. Most of them have a theme to them. Usually, I am really good at least sticking to the theme. However, when I make that TBR I am just never feeling the books that I have picked out. So I am never actually thinning out my TBR list.

4 – I just don’t like them

It’s true. I just don’t like them. I feel like I being restricted when I try to stick them. Now does this stop me from making them? No.

In fact I make them in hopes that one day I will actually stick to it.

So in conclusion my TBR is telling me…

It would be right. I’m sorry TBR list. I really am. I will help cut you down one day.

How are you with TBRs lists?

How does is effect your reading? I can’t say no. Now I have a back log of books to read from February. I keep signing up. I am very great full to everyone. I find myself overwhelmed.

I’m really sorry that I was not on here this weekend. I really was not feeling well on Friday and wanted to take the weekend to myself. Sunday thought I went to the play version of Aladdin. It was so good.

I must say that the genie was my favorite part of the whole play. I love the way he put his own spin on the character while staying true to what Robin Williams did in the movie.

This just makes me so happy. If yo guys get the chance to go see he play you have to.

So I have been obsessed with this app lately called WebToon. It is a website and an app that lets people publish comics for free. It’s a free and just all around awesome app. Right now my favorite comic is called Eggnoid. It’s on its third season on WebToons. The artist is so talented. He goes by the Archie the Redcat.  The story is so great.

Monday Madness – Up Coming Posts

Hello, wonderlandians. Happy Monday. I hope everyone has had a great weekend. I feel like every other post I am tell you I am in some sort of doctors office. Well I am currently sitting in the doctors office waiting to get x-rays for my knee and ankle.

Seriously, I feel like they should just give me a rewards cards for how much I am in the doctors office. Earn 5,000 points your next doctors appointment is free. Wouldn’t that be great? I think so.

Anyway, I really wanted to talk about they fact for the next two weeks I am so excited about two post for Monday Madness. I wanted to post one of them today but I didn’t get all of research done. This one post has been three months in the making. It’s going to be about book blog promotions.

Then the is one I am really excited about but I want to keep it secret for now. I will give you a hit though it has to do with book to movie adaption service.

I know I keep saying that I am so excited because it is the truth both of these post have a lot of research that I have had to do for these post. Ah!

Well this is all I have for today.

Thank you all for joining me here in out little part of wonderland. Please don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out.

Until next time

Monday Madness

Hello, wonderlandians! Thank you for joining me here today. How is your Monday night going? I came home from work and cleaned my apartment for two hours. Adulting is fun. I swear I have had more caffeine today than I have had all week. Getting to bed at 3 am when you have to get up at 6:30 in the morning is not a good idea. In my defence, though I had gotten into this really cool story. This caused me to look like a zombie. The result at the end of the day looks something like this

I have had a problem over the last few days where I have not wanted to read anything. This makes me turn to the internet to help me find something to distract me. I think I have been cramming in a lot of reading in these last two weeks. I have basically finished a book a day. Which is great though sometimes the mind needs a break. I have found that watching Youtube and taking a break from reading is a good thing. A lot of the books I have tried to read over the last few days have not held any interest at all to me. I found myself on wattpad last night at about 8pm. See this was my first mistake. I wanted to read something that I could skim over and make my eyes tired. Usually, when it comes to sites like wattpad and fanfiction.net I tend to skim over the stories there. This time, however, I did not find any fanfiction on wattpad last night that help interest to me.

I fell down the rabbit hole of original stories on wattpad. It did not look good with everything that I had started reading. Then right as I was about to give up I found a dang story with over 35 chapters. I was reading that story for 8 hours and I am still not done. I want to finish this story tonight. It is called Midnight CEO. It is by a wonderful author on there named AluraJasmine.

I have not in a long while that down for 8 hours straight just to read one story. Typically I’m listening to an audiobook so I have the advantage of moving around while I’m listening to the book. I did find myself switching between my phone and my laptop to read this story. I believe the story has over 63,000 views on Wattpad. Going into the story you think it’s going to be one thing and then it turned out to be something completely different.

I know that there are a lot of authors on Wattpad that get a lot of heat for posting their stories there. I have read a lot of books that have started off on Wattpad and then got pulled to be cleaned up and then published traditionally or even self-published. I believe the book called Beautiful Bastard was started on Wattpad and then was pulled. That book has now been optioned for movie rights.

So I have a couple questions for you guys today. What do you guys think of Wattpad authors? what do you guys think of sites like Wattpad? have you found any good stories on Wattpad?

Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of Wonderland. Don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. I saw that they were giving rides to anybody who gave them a treat. they’re also hanging out in the waterhole with some mermaids. They can be a little bit tricky so be careful around the mermaids.

Until next time

Much love
