Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts – #3

Bookish and Not So Bookish Thoughts

Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts is a regular meme hosted by Christine at Bookishly Boisterous Books.


Kia Ora everyone!

This is my first B(&NSB)T post for 2015! There really isn’t a good way to shorten the name… that will do.

In Bookish news,

1. I have signed up for the 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge. I am remaining with 100 books as my goal and focusing on finishing all the series I have started, especially the completed series. I like to think this will help decrease me TBR pile. Each month new books are released and I just can’t help but add them.

2. I purchased one book while I was holidaying in Los Angeles. This will probably be the last purchase for awhile! (See more about that here). I was at The Grove and introduced by hubby to Barnes & Noble, all 3 levels! I purchased ‘An Abundance of Katherines‘ by John Green. This will sit next to my copy of ‘The Fault In Our Stars‘ which I received for Christmas 2013.

In Not So Bookish news,

3. Have you discovered Red My Lips? I was invited to its 2015 event. I hadn’t heard about it. But its a worthy cause. Its a campaign designed to raise visibility and awareness about the realities and prevalence of sexual violence, while combating rape culture and victim-blaming. Their slogan: This is not about VANITY. It’s about VISIBILITY. So this April, I will consider wearing red lips when I am most visible to the public. Join the event on facebook here.

4. I’ve been spending a little bit of time lately on Pinterest, in particular all the home decor and DIY things for around the home. I can’t wait for the day when I own my home. We are renting at the moment so there are limitations to what I can do. I really need to declutter. I have a LOT of stuff. Maybe that can be a personal goal for the year. If it’s still in the garage in 6 months, then its gone.


That’s a wrap from me for this week. Catch ya next time. Bye!
