February Wrap-Up | 2016

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

February was a start to an amazing adventure. Between self-discovery, a little bit of a learning curve and good books, I am proud of what has been accomplished in such a sort amount of time. This was the month I officially launched my blog! The more I learn about how to create a successful blog and more specifically, the Book Community, the more I realize I made a great decision by creating this opportunity. At of the end of the month, my blog is up to 740 followers on Twitter, 59 likes on Facebook and 159 followers on Instagram. Follow me on social media by clicking the follow buttons on the right side of the webpage! I was also able to host my first giveaway due to the fantastic reader support I’ve been receiving so far. If you’d like to see more giveaways and content, make sure you subscribe and follow me on social media – don’t forget to tell your Bookish friends too!

Okay so let’s get down some more blog accomplishments and posts I was able to make this month. I was able to read a total of 4 books and provided 3 tidbits of information! What is a Tidbit you ask? Great question! A Tidbit, at least for the purposes of this blog, is just a little bit of bookish information that may be useful to readers. Sometimes this information is about an upcoming book additions such as Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, other times this information is bookish advice such as When to Break-Up With a Book. My goal is to provide diverse information to both heavily involved and casual readers.

If you read along with me, use the hashtag #booksunveiledreads on any social media posts so that we can comment and discuss together!

Worth Dying For by Lee Child (A Reacher Novel)

For those who haven’t had the pleasure of reading any Reacher novels.. let me enlighten you to the amazing persona of Mr. Jack Reacher. He is an ex-military bad ass with a knack for being at the right place at the right time. During his military service he served as a sort of military cop – so not only does he know how to fight and analyze a sticky situation, he also knows how investigate and outsmart. Reacher is what we might consider a modern day nomad…

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Oh Ender, our favorite Third and boy genius. In Ender’s Game, written by Orson Scott Card, Andrew Wiggin (aka Ender) captivates readers with his constant internal conflict and boundless ability to solve any problem thrown his way. One of my favorite aspects about this book is how the SciFi is incorporated. This is not just a “Humans vs Aliens” book, but is a more realistic SciFi based on real science, physics and an actual possibility of extraterrestrial life …

The Harmony Scroll by Edita A. Petrick.

The Harmony Scroll (Stella Hunter Mystery Book 2) is about Stella Hunter’s adopted son, Gabriel, and the curse that he carries with him. Gabriel is known, by the few who possess this knowledge, as the Peacetaker. Stella has been doing thorough research in hopes that she can find a cure for this curse, but the only mention of hope is an ancient scroll that may contain the powers of reversal. Just one problem, no one has documented sight of this scroll it in hundreds of years. Time is running short on finding the scroll; if she can’t manage to do that, the whole world may be in danger…

The Academy by C.L. Stone

There are two “Academy” series written by C.L. Stone – Ghost Bird and Scarab Beetle. Essentially, they have the same themes, but differ in content and character development. These books are centered on what is called “The Academy” and different groups of characters within that – I can’t really give too much away about what “The Academy” is without ruining some of the story though. I wish I could! But I really want to leave the effect C.L. Stone placed in the books for those that haven’t read it yet…

When to Break-Up With a Book

Book Break-upAlright, we’ve all been through this before.. Picking up a new book, the description seems promising, the cover is captivating … but then you are 5 chapters in and just getting there was a grueling task. How do you decide when it’s time to throw in the towel and break-up with a book? Well the breaking point will be slightly different for everyone, but it is totally acceptable to commit a book break-up when any of these situations happen …
