Top Ten Tuesday – Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

Top Ten Tuesday

Hey everyone! It’s funny because I don’t exactly get in slumps, but I do have go-to books for when I feel as if one’s coming on or I’m in a bad mood. Basically, these are reads I go to when I need to feel emotions. Any kind of emotion.

Caidyn’s Going Back to School!

Wow y’all, this summer has gone fast. It feels like I just had my graduation ceremony and now here we are.

In case you’re new (and hi! because there are a lot of new followers!) I’m Caidyn. I have a bachelor’s in psychology and I’m going to get a master’s in social work. (Technically called social welfare at my program but whatever.)

It’s a really intensive program, to be honest. Which is why I’m making this post.

I won’t be posting as much. I won’t be liking/commenting as much. My goal is to take an hour each night before I go to bed to catch up on what I missed, but that’s going to be flexible.

My schedule for the next semester basically looks like this at the moment:

  • Monday: field work
  • Tuesday: field work
  • Wednesday: my actual job
  • Thursday: actual job
  • Friday: actual job
  • Saturday: classes every other week
  • Sunday: field work

On top of that, doing my classwork online and writing papers and making sure that I’m visiting clients and on and on and on.

Chantel and I have already decided that we’ll be carving out time to watch something together more often since we love watching shows together. Right now we’re watching Broadchurch, so that’s a whole lot of fun.

Plus, you know, trying to read so I can keep the content coming on here.

I’m going to be stretched thin, I realize that. But, really, I’m going to do my best to keep up with things. This is just me saying I won’t be around as much as I’d like.

Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel

Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel

The rules are:

  • Pick one thing that you’re really into this week
  • Gush about it

Literally, that’s it. That’s all you have to do for this.

It’s not exactly a tag so there aren’t huge rules. It’s more for Chantel and I to branch out into some new things. This was created as a book blog, but we love music, TV, movies, podcasts, video games, etc. And we want to talk about it more with you.

Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.

Mini ARC Reviews

Caidyn's review (1)

If we wanted to be accurate, the little graphic should say reviews but, y’all, I’m too lazy to make a new graphic. This one stays.

Since the last mini reviews went well, I thought I’d do it again. Some positive reviews, some negative, some more neutral.

So, let’s go for it!

Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

I think that my first thought for this was, only 10??? How the hell am I supposed to choose out of this huge list I have of amazing people and websites that are out there? I mean, damn.

In past weeks, I’ve struggled to come up with some. This week, I’m going to struggle to narrow it to ten.
