Summer Lovin’ Day 1: Class Orientation

(Organized and hosted by Oh, Chrys!, Tumbling Books, Effortlessly Reading, Love Life Read, Shelf Addiction, Read Sleep Repeat, and Reviewing Wonderland) Woo-hoo! It’s here! The start of Summer Lovin’ and since it’s the first day, here are my goals including the books I plan to read. Although really looking at my TBR pile, I might tackle a different sent of books. So hi from Albuquerque, New Mexico! Where I’ve been doing the daily rain dance because we’re under a heat wave and need the rain.

Bookish Dress Up & My Book Crack

Our first mini challenge is hosted by Nyx Book Reviews: Bookish Dress Up. The challenge is: I would love to know which character you would dress differently, and how! If I had to pick any character to dress up, I’d say Susan from Chelsea Cain’s Archie Sheridan / Gretchen Lowell series. Susan is often described as wearing nothing but jeans, t-shirts (such has her beloved The Pixies shirt), and combat boots. Susan in part dresses the way she does because she has a hippie mother. I’d like to see her wear more dresses and take pride in her looks, but not as a way to impress Archie. Susan also sports a different hair color in a each book, but I think if it were up to me, I’d have Susan… Read more »
