Wow, another year flew by. This year my reading pace slowed a bit, but for good reason: my husband and I welcomed Saturday Nite Reader, Jr. in July!
In order to keep up with all the new releases I did up my audiobook game. Now that I am back to work I am using my commute time to pick up a book; they certainly make commuting more enjoyable. head in a book = leave me alone ;)

Although life has changed a bit, I still enjoy putting together – what I aim to be – quick, witty and funny reviews. Thank you for stopping by and hopefully you have enjoyed what you’ve seen thus far. XO, Nikki
I had the pleasure of answering a few questions – with a few other bookstagrammers – about Instagram burnout for fellow book blogger Marcia over at Trendy Simple Life. Check out Marcia’s experience with Instagram burnout and how she recommends taking your power back! feature image credit: Trendy Simple Life
I am lucky to call Marcia a friend. I’ve known her since 2008 and have spent the last 2 years attending Marcia’s monthly book club. She takes the most beautiful book photos and is my young adult genre guru. She writes very thoughtful reviews on all genres so I recommend you check her out!Read More »
Like classic Jodi, she has this rational way of presenting both sides of an issue where you feel empathy for all characters whether you agree with them or not (she’s brilliant at this!) You may not agree, but you understand.
When my husband suggested that I start my book blog last year I did not know where it would head (and maybe still don’t – hehe – but that’s okay); to say its been a fun, wild ride is an understatement. It has opened up my world to new friends, authors and books. I can’t wait to see what the next year will bring!

Laura over at What to Read Next invited me to be a guest on her weekly podcast and I had a wonderful time! Come listen to us discuss book clubs (and how I am in too many), favorite authors, top books & over-rated books, reading on the subway, and more!
This is the Halloween Creatures Book Tag 2.0 as first hosted by Anthony@Keep Reading Forward. Trendy Simple Life and Jen Chaos Reviews both tagged me! Although I am not a huge fan of Halloween (to me its always cold and rainy and I would rather wear sweats), I love getting trick-or-treaters and have all the candy ready for their arrival!
If you make it through my whole post, as a reward I will share a few of my Halloween costumes.Read More »
