I can’t believe that January is already over! Ferris Bueller was right, life moves pretty fast. Time to check in and see how I did on my inaugural challenges! Put The Library on Hold- January TBR I read 3 out of 7 books off my shelf, not too bad! Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail […]
Shadow and Bone is one of those books I’ve had on my shelves forever and I don’t know why I didn’t read it sooner. I LOVED IT. The world, the characters, THE DARKLING. DAMMIT, THE DARKLING! The Darkling had me like… But by the end I was like… It was a beautifully […]
YOU GUYZZZZZZ!! This year we get a new Death Cab album and we just GOT THE FIRST SINGLE!!! AAAAH! Excitement aside, this song feels like it’s totally about his marriage/divorce from Zooey Deschanel, which makes me really sad for him. Take a listen and let me know what you think.
All the Bright Places is a book that’s going to mean different things to different people, but one thing is for sure, it’s going to mean something. It has to. But first you need to read it! For me, All the Bright Places was a beautiful and sad story about two kids who are both […]
Besides YA books, I’d say my most read category would have to be Adult Historical Fiction- dual timeline novels specifically. So, these are the books I’d recommend most for an adult book club! I’m only including books I’ve read and that I think lend themselves to discussion. The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton Kate Morton […]

NOTE: ALL UPDATES FOR THIS CHALLENGE WILL NOW BE AT GONE WITH HER THOUGHTS! Happy Sunday, everyone! Each Sunday I will be posting these check-ins, which will reflect activities from Sundays to Saturdays. Here’s how I did this week… I’m totally late posting this today.

To start off, I loved Every Breath (5 stars) and read the sequel Every Word IN A DAY. I ordered it from the Australian publisher because there was no way I could wait for the September US release date! My immediate reaction? “Heart wrenching and LONDON and duuuude some fiery hot scenes like whoa.” So […]
Ok, today I want to make everyone dance a little, where you are. And it’s really hard to not dance to this song. I love Bruno Mars and this is just the perfect song for him. I’m glad Mark Ronson picked him to sing it.
This was my favorite Finishing School book yet! If you’re not familiar, Gail Carriger’s Finishing School series is YA that is set 25 years before her adult series the Parasol Protectorate. Both series can be best described as an Austenesque comedy of manners with supernatural creatures, alternate Victorian history and steampunk elements. They are all […]
Happy Tuesday! Last week I shared with you the 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To, but I wasn’t done. I realized I also had enough 2014 sequels or duology/trilogy/series enders that I also didn’t get to! So, today being a freebie topic I’m sharing them with you now. Written in […]
Bitsy Words is a new weekly feature here at Gone with the Words where we will talk about books we’ve read in short, mixed media form. We read a lot, but we don’t always review everything because sometimes a standard review is not what’s right for it. Sometimes we want to express reactions to […]
