Hello! I am a bit late this week but I am here nonetheless. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been busy helping my boyfriend move. Hard work right there. I finally got some time to sit down a write. I am in the middle of doing laundry and was thinking about what to write today … I was thinking about just updating you on me. I don’t talk about myself much because I am pretty self conscious. I don’t like the spotlight on me but I am going to do it anyways because I haven’t done too much ready or thinking about reading this past week.

I am moving my boyfriend, as stated already, this last week into this next weekend. I will be moving in with him end of May beginning of June. Then we are off to Spain! *heart eyes* So for two weeks in June I will be off not anywhere near a computer(unless you count the countless photos I will be taking on my phone). Don’t worry when I get back I’ll do a post on everything we did there and some pictures for you.

I haven’t read too much. I picked up Defy Me pretty much when it got to my door this month, and I’m hoping to have it done by the weekend but we will see. I am also doing something I never do, that is read 2 books at once. So, I am reading Defy Me during the day while I am out and about, and 10% Happier: with a huge long subtitle I’m not going to look at right now; I’m reading a chapter of that before I go to bed each night, or most nights. I’m not a huge nonfiction/self-help reader. It takes me a whole lot longer to get through those books than it does anything else. But since I have been having some pretty down days and not feeling up to much I know I need to take a step back a reevaluate. And part of that is actually learning how to evaluate and what to look for. So, self-help books here I come to help myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you watched the new episode of Game of Throne?! It was crazy, huh? I am going crazy over all of the Bran memes. I just can’t stop posting them. Other than GoT, I have been doing well with my workouts. I am going on 2 weeks with no breaks other than weekends, but the last couple weekends I have been moving so even if it’s not recorded on my app as an actual workout I am still getting one in. Other than that, I haven’t done much besides work. I am trying to figure out how I am going to move all of my books (I have over 300). That’s just a crazy number. Let me know your moving tips! Now, it is beautiful outside, for now, and I am going to enjoy what sun there is left! It is supposed to start raining in about an hour.

I hope you all have a great rest of your week. And if you need to hear this You can do it. I believe in you. I know I need to hear that sometimes. Just one day at a time. Leave a comment on you book moving tips! Or find me on insta @ positivityandbooks and on Litsy @ ryeannuh

Hello everyone! Happy Monday. I am sorry to keep you all hanging for the past couple weeks. I have been having some mental health issues. So, I just had to step away to take care of that. But I am feeling much better now and am ready to catch you up. So today we are going to see what I read in March and plan to read in April!

So, in March, I read 8 books plus 3 audiobooks. I was not prepared for that number when I went gathering them up for the picture! ๐Ÿ˜€ There are 4 comics, 4 books and the one I am currently in the middle of. So I got all but This Savage Song read that was on my March tbr. I am pretty excited about that. I am currently in the middle of A Curse so Dark and Lonely. I started it with the Fairyloot readalong but decided I didn’t want to keep that schedule. But since I had started the book I needed to finish it. Lol. I also added 2 comics, Fables and Ms Marvel Vol 3. They were great! As always.

Pss.. I can’t figure out how to rotate this picture. It won’t let me like the other one… :/

Onto April! So I have these on my tbr right now. Along with the Tahereh Mafi ebook Shadow Me, I want to read that before I jump into Defy Me. I am also really excited to jump back into the world of The Rook in Stiletto! And since I was having some of my own issues I decided to pick up 10% Happier, and do some mental wellness. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well I hope today’s post was everything you wanted. Once again I am sorry I didn’t get around to posting the last couple of weeks but since I am on the road to wellness hopefully I won’t have too many more bouts. Leave me a comment on what you are reading this month and follow me on the socials! Insta @ postivityandbooks and Litsy and @ RyeAnnUh

Hello Hello! I hope it is just as nice outside wherever you are as it is here in Kansas. Today it is a beautiful 60 degree day with very little wind. I better enjoy it while it lasts.

I wanted to talk about the Outlander series today! I love this series and am currently reading it for a second time. Well, listening to it. I binged all 8 books last year on audible (1 a month, plus one of the Lord John novellas but I didn’t really care for that spin off). I started listening to it again because I started training for a 5k and wanted something other than music to listen to and since the first book is just over 40 hours I knew it would be plenty long to get me through.

Picture from Google.

If you haven’t heard of Outlander (also a show on STARZ) it is a romance time-travel series. The main character, Claire, is on vacation with her husband Frank before settling down in their first house after the war in 1945 in Scotland. She goes to this stone circle and steps through an invisible portal that takes her back to 1745 in the middle of another war. There she stumbles upon Franks great-great-great-etc grandfather Randall, who promptly tries(kinda) to rape her. Then she gets kidnapped by the Scots and lands herself patching up a young fellow named Jamie (she was a nurse during war times).

And that is all I am going to say any more would be spoiling it. But I thought since I am about 6 hours into the audio book (approx 150 pages) I would mention it. I hardly ever, if never, reread books. There are just so many new ones I want to get my hands on.

What books do you go back to time and time again? Any books you would like to reread but cant bring yourself to, for whatever reason? What are some of your favorite books on audio? Let me know in the comments or find me on Insta @ positivityandbooks or on Litsy @ Ryeannuh

Hello! Its a lovely stormy Tuesday here in Kansas. And I am not going to lie I 100% forgot about the post yesterday. I was super excited about going to see Captain Marvel, which was amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, let’s talk comics! I have only read 1 Marvel comic, Ms. Marvel Vol 1. I have Vol 2 I am going to pick up after I finish my current book. I did not realize there were already like 10 of these and I really need to get on that!

Other comics/graphic novels I’ve read- which there aren’t that many different ones- I Hate Fairyland, Rick and Morty, Fables, Monstress, Saga, and Paper Girls. I also just bought/read the very first volume in the Steel Prince Series by VE Schwab.

I Hate Fairyland consists of 4 volumes -it is complete- all about Gertrude who gets stuck in Fairyland for 30 years! It has lots of cursing and is definitely a Mature read.

Cover for I Hate Fairyland Issue 9.

Rick and Morty are just volumes that spin off of the TV show, pretty self explanatory.

Fables is great! I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first but I am 7 books in and still have like 7(or more) to go. But, it is just about how the Fables live in NYC, in their own little neighborhood, and they also have a farm for fables that cannot change to look like humans. It is also pretty mature, there is nudity and cursing.

Fables Book 1

Monstress … I’m not even really sure what is going on in this series. There is a girl, a cat thing, and a little fox girl… The main girl(not fox girl) has some sort of extra life-form inside of her that can/will destroy her… the cat-thing has like 6 tails, and fox girl is just the cutest little like 10 year old with the ears and tail of a fox. Obviously there is more than that, but… I should really re-read it because I really only have the inkling of a clue as to what is going on in this world.

Monstress Issue 14

Saga and Paper Girls both are written by Brian K Vaughn. Saga was the very first comic I picked up and I read the entire first book in less than an hour! I was super engrossed. Paper Girls … not as good but it isn’t even close to the same type of story Saga is. I would recommend them both. Don’t even read reviews because everything is a spoiler.

Hope everyone is having a good Monday! I am just lounging around, cleaning up a bit and going to rearrange my bookshelves.

So this year I have been doing something different with my TBR. Instead of just staring at my shelves until something looks good, or picking a number and then another number to narrow down to a shelf and then to a particular book I have been actually picking out my books ahead of time! :O Ive actually never done this before, unless I bought a book then I usually just pick it up right then. So, at the beginning of every month I’ll share with you what I plan on reading.

This month I started out finishing Dear Martin by Nic Stone, but I finished that right after I woke up on the 1st. Now I am reading The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige. Hopefully I will finish that in the next day or too, it is pretty short, under 300 pages. After that here is what I plan on reading.

So I have 4 books more books for the month plus an extra just in case. But I am also getting the Shades of Magic comic/graphic novel tomorrow so that will be on there as well. I plan on reading Ms. Marvel Vol 2, The Rook, Treacherous Love and The Phantom Tollbooth. And This Savage Song will be a reward if I finish all of those other books, or my first book of April.
