November: A Month in Review on WildlyRead

November in Review

Well, only six book-related posts this month, as opposed to October’s eight, but that’s still more than one a week, so bully for me! And now, a round-up of those posts for the month of November:

Enjoy!

October: A Month in Review on WildlyRead

Please excuse me while I congratulate myself for a moment on actually posting REAL LIVE BOOK REVIEWS on my book blog this month! I used to do a lot more of this and then life happened, and so I’ve only recently been getting back into it in a serious way, and boy am I loving it. Here, proudly, are the book posts I’ve made over on WildlyRead for the month of October:

Enjoy!

My First Two Weeks in New Zealand: a social media round-up

For those of you who haven’t quite gotten the hang of this website yet, it has 4 different parts:

WildlyMade – a catalogue of my photography and other art projects
WildlyRead – a blog of book reviews and other literary-related thoughts
WildlyTraveled – adventure stories

And last but not least, WildlyLived, which is sort of the one ring to rule them all. It has its own posts about my life (see the house/petsitting series I’m currently flogging blogging), and I try my hardest to do occasional round-ups of the things happening on all of the other sites, too. For instance, this is a round-up of the posts I’ve done about New Zealand in the past almost two weeks that I’ve been here.

You can also see photographs of my trip on my Instagram account or on my WildlyMade New Zealand catalogue of images.

You can also follow along on Facebook, on my new page, WildlyTraveled.

Because social media FTW.

Last Week on WildlyRead

Last week, 9/27-10/03/2015, was a record-breaking week for the number of blog posts I was able to write – hooray! All of them were on my book blog, WildlyRead, and covered favorite books like Alice in Wonderland, talked about gorgeous new releases, and gave a preview of what I’m looking forward to reading this month. Check them out!

On WildlyRead: Book Review: Lulu’s Mysterious Mission by Judith Viorst (and a new release!)

lulu's mysterious missionSometimes I have the opportunity to read books at work. It’s the most amazing thing, to not be actively managing a bookstore or department of a bookstore and yet still work in a bookstore. It means I get to do fun things like manage the store’s Facebook account and review books while on the sales floor without the added pressure of  a million other tasks required to be done at the same time. That was the excitement for today – discovering and reading the third book in Judith Viorst’s Lulu series, Lulu’s Mysterious Mission. For a full review and a recommendation for a new release coming out tomorrow, check out the full post on WildlyRead.

On WildlyRead: June New Releases

Run, don’t walk, to your nearest independent bookstore (or call them up, or check out their website) to preorder these new June releases that I can hardly wait to read.

March 17 on WildyRead & WildlyTraveled

I’m bringing back blogging with a bang on my WildlyLived websites with THREE new posts today!

First, on WildlyTraveled, you can read my mother’s story on Pink Pangea about that time she was treated to an unexpected Bororo delicacy in Brazil.

Then on WildlyRead, you can read about a book releasing today: Prudence, the first book in Gail Carriger’s new series!

Lastly, enjoy my #booknerd tendencies in my choice of St. Patrick’s Day attire for today. Happy luck o’ the Irish to you all, today, Irish or not!
