I've been reading a lot of books this year, but not many that I actually own. I hope to get through at least five books I own this summer. I'm aiming low. Not all the books on this list are ones I own because I want to be realistic, I know I am going to keep borrowing Ebooks from the library. 
Of the books I own that I'm sharing, some of them are ones I have had the longest on my shelf.

Music Monday: Spider

Welcome to Music Monday! This weekly meme was created by Lauren @Always Me. Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately! If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up.

 I found this artist last year. She only had one song out when I found her. She has a few more out now, so I thought I'd share them. She's a really talented Indie artist.

Book Beginning | Friday 56 | Blogger Hop || Upright Women Wanted by Sarah Gailey

Please join us over at RoseCityReader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice
These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

 The book I am currently reading is Secret History by Brandon Sanderson, but all the quotes spoil things for the book so I can't share it. This is a book I got a while ago, I don't remember where, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

"That girl's got more wrong notions than a barn owl's got mean looks."
   Esther is a stowaway. She's hidden herself away in the Librarian's book wagon in an attempt to escape the marriage her father has arranged for her--a marriage to the man who was previously engaged to her best friend. Her best friend who she was in love with. Her best friend who was just executed for possession of resistance propaganda.
   The future American Southwest is full of bandits, fascists, and queer librarian spies on horseback trying to do the right thing.

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Wishes

I very recently acquired a bunch of books, my birthday was last month, and I got a couple because I had a giftcard. But there are always more books I'd to have. (I also need to start reading them again, rather than get ones from the library that I do not own.) I have read, so few books I actually physically own this year. I am not going to say, because the number is pathetically low. The rest have either been library books, or NetGalley books.
