Bout of Books! It Has Begun!


 Yay! The first read-a-thon of '22 and the first for me in many moons! I'm going to pack as much reading in this week as I can! I do have work, but I have a lot of free time supposedly. 


My first selection is not on my previously listed list. I did warn you that I might change it up a bit, so thusly. 



Going for something a bit less cerebral to kick start the week! I've sorta kind of seen the movie, but I hear the book is better (as per usual with adaptations)


So let's get this week started!

Weekly Reading Goals

 Howdy Folks! I hope everyone had themselves a festive holiday? It's the start of a new week and the last one of this cursed year! 2022 is coming up soon and I am tentatively looking forward to it! 




For this week I'm going to have myself a little buffet of reading selections to push me through the week. (Yes, feed the book ADD) 

Here they be! 

  • Crime and Punishment
  • The Marquis de Sade by Neil Schaeffer 
  • Wicca Starter Kit (3 book combo) by Lisa Chamberlain
  • Wicca for Beginners by Dora McGregor
I may bop into other books, but these are the ones closest to my grubby mitts, so chances are they'll be the winners! I'm not aiming to finish, just setting up a good reading habit of 30 minutes (or more) a day. I will update my progress around Friday and let you know what all I think about what all I've read til then! Wish me lucksies! 

What are you reading? I wanna know, cuz I wanna get a nice TBR list going!

Brought up as a bookworm and musician, Angela J. Ford began writing The Four Worlds Series—a fantasy series—at the age of twelve. The storyline of those books was largely based off of the imaginative games she played with her sisters.











Angela originally finished the series when she was sixteen. After college, Angela began to rewrite The Four Worlds Series, bringing it from a child’s daydream to an adventure young and old can enjoy. Since it is inspired by fairy tales, high magic, and epic fantasy, Angela knows you’ll enjoy your adventures within the Four Worlds.






If you happen to be in Nashville, you’ll most likely find her at a local coffee shop, enjoying a white chocolate mocha and furiously working on her next book. Make sure you say hello!

It is 1816 and twenty-one-year-old Julianne Smith is anxious to depart from her guardians’ luxurious household and set out on her own. Even with all her grand ideas seemingly within reach, Julianne never foresees the turn of events that are about to irrevocably transform her life. Captain Charles Dorchester is a handsome, honourable man with few worries now that the war is behind him. When fate leads him to rescue the passengers of a stagecoach after it is robbed somewhere between London and Birmingham, he has no idea that inside is a woman with the power to turn his life upside down. As Julianne’s path intertwines with his, neither can deny their attraction to each other. But as a fierce passion and love blooms between them, Julianne is left in the midst of an internal struggle that prompts betrayal, fears, and consequences.
