Black Friday and Christmas Spirit Read-a-thon/Challenge sign up

 The black friday read-a-thon takes place at the end of your Thanksgiving into black friday. You can either be comfy and reading at home or read while standing in line. I'm pretty sure I will be doing a little of both. I will hopefully be on to a new book by then either Infinite, Isla and the Happily Ever After, or Ashes to Ashes. I will be reading something on my kindle app when I'm standing in line.

I'm going to sign up for Mistletoe and actually complete it this year unlike last year. I'm ready to start reading Christmas books soon.

Help Make My TBR Jar for 2015

My TBR Jar

This year I used a tbr jar to keep track of the books I wanted to read during the summer and the rest of the year. It was fun to watch those pieces of paper disappear and I often used the jar to choose my next book to read or request from the library.

I use a cheap cup I got from walmart as my TBR Jar.

Of course I will choose most of the books that will go in the jar based on my 2015 releases and what I need to complete the challenges I join, but I want to know your opinion on some books I need to read in 2015. I have linked my goodreads to be read shelf from you guys to look through and also my 2015 releases shelf which is the 2015 releases I have found that I'm interested in. So vote below in the comments for the books I need to put in my 2015 TBR jar. There are no rules give as many book suggestions as you would like. I may read one of the books you choose in 2015.

August, September, and October Wrap Up

So I have been slacking on Monthly Wrap Ups. I meant to do one for September and August, but I didn't want to put it up in the middle of the month so I'm doing my wrap up for August, September, and October. November will be my final month to complete my reading challenges. The only one I don't think I'm going to complete is the Monthly Keyword. I'm way more behind in that challenge this year than I was last year. I might have a small TBR for November, but it won't be too ambitious. 
In August we went on vacation so I didn't read for most of the month. I finished Four by Veronica Roth on August 1st and then we were gone until the 12th. I started Don't Call Me Baby by Gwendolyn Hensley a little while we were on vacation, but didn't read much and finished it when we came back. Then before I knew it I was done with work and back in school. That is when I finished Fangirl. I enjoyed all the books I read in August although I read so few.
In September I read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Then I read The Distance Between Us and On the Fence by Kasie West. The last book I read for September was Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Lola took me a long time to get into, but otherwise I enjoyed all the books from September also.

In October I read Jodi Picoult's newest release Leaving Time, which is by far one of my favorite books of this year. Then I read How Zoe Made Her Dreams (mostly) Come Ture by Sarah Stromeyer. This book was by a fairy tale them park and it was totally my style. Then I started and finished Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Soibhan Vivian in one day for Dewey's Read-A-Thon. The next book I read was Fire with Fire to finish out the month. 

I want to read Infinite by Jodi Meadows and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins in November. That will be the end of two series by me. Not to mention I will probably finish the Burn for Burn series in November. Then I will be back in December for my month of Christmas book reading.
