An Update On Me

So I know that I’ve been missing from the blogging world and I haven’t really been participating in my blogging group. I’m sorry for that, I’m trying to get caught up at the moment but it might be a while before I am.

First up, my sleep specialist and I have finally gotten what machine and what settings are necessary to keep me breathing at night. I’m getting an ASV (Aut0-Servo-Ventilator) machine and an oxygen concentrator. This will allow me to get enough oxygen at night and allow me to actually keep breathing as the machine uses an algorithm to determine how much air I need to take in and if I’m breathing or not. I’m supposed to get my machine sometime in the next month. So yay for sleep!

Next, I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been battling an issue with my right eye. I was diagnosed with episcleritis, but it just won’t go away. Since episcleritis can be caused by autoimmune disorders and because I do exhibit other symptoms of autoimmune disorders, I’m being sent to a specialist for further testing to see if an autoimmune disorder is the cause of my eye issue.

Add to this that I just finished my second semester of a precursor to going to BYU-Idaho Online for a Business Management degree, and I’ve been busy and not feeling all that great. Hopefully I can get back to blogging soon as I really miss it!

December TBR

So November was kind of a bust when it came to reading. This month, I’m hoping to get more reading done than in November. Most of the books I’m planning to read this month are either for book clubs, blog tours, or just to get my NetGalley/Edelweiss TBRs down.

I’m too lazy to grab pics of the covers today, so…

Scythe by Neal Shusterman – I need to read this for YA Book Club at Barnes & Noble.
Jupiter’s Fire by William Osborne – Blog Tour
The Slayings in Syndenham by Alice Castle – Blog Tour
Wild Sky by Lexi Rees – Blog Tour
Die Every Day by Gordon Bickerstaff – Blog Tour
Belle Revolté by Linsey Miller – NetGalley
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert – Prep for The Night Country
The Night Country by Melissa Albert – NetGalley
Legacy of Night by C. D. Travenor – NetGalley
Safeguard by John A. Daly – NetGalley

I’m going to keep it to those books and hope that I manage to get all of them read. I’ve already started Scythe, Jupiter’s Fire, and Belle Revolté. I’m working on The Hazel Wood in preparation for The Night Country.

I’m going to try to start reading at least 4 NetGalley books per month and not requesting new books no matter how much I want to until my feedback ratio is 80% and my TBR pile for NetGalley is way lower than it currently is. This means I’m going to be reading and reviewing some seriously old books, but it will be worth it to fix my ratio.

What’s on your December TBR list?
