The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple and go something like this.
Happy first day of April and Happy Easter to those that celebrate.
Today is also the first day of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I’m not sure what year this is for me, but I know I’ve participated in some form or fashion over the last 6 years; be it here or my creative writing blog, or my personal blog.
Anyway, I’m at it again this year. Right here and my creative writing blog, The Ink Slinger (although I haven’t slung much ink). And, without further adieu let’s jump into today’s post.
Some might call this cheating, but umm, I say it falls within the parameters of the challenge. Continue reading
Happy end of February. I hope you all are having a great start to the year.
For me this year is all about knocking books off that ever-growing TBR pile. In theory. It does, however appear that I’m not doing a very good job.
I didn’t come out of the gate fast nor did I finish the months of January & February where I wanted to be. As of this writing I’m 2 books behind in my Goodreads challenge, which I’m okay with. Not panicking yet, but I’ve also decided that I plan to do quality Continue reading

More like skimmed and that’s what I did with The Grapes of Wrath and Oliver Twist. I keep saying now that I’m older and have lived a little maybe, just maybe these won’t be so boring.

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! I can’t believe it in just a few hours, if you’re on the East Coast in the U.S., we’re giving 2017 the boot and ushering in 2018 with open arms.
I haven’t done a one of these for quite sometime. I’m going to include Stacking the Shelves to the new monthly feature, Monthly Roundup.
So, what am I stacking the shelves with, eh?
1. Iron Gold by Pierce Brown – This is the latest installment of the Red Rising Saga. I went to work and it was sitting there all by its lonesome, so I thought I’d give it a good home; even though I’m not supposed to be adding any more ARCs to my collection. At least not until I get caught up.
