The Literary Blog Hop: International Giveaway!



Welcome to The Relentless Reader! It's time for The Literary Blog Hop, hosted by Judith at Leeswammes' Blog.

My giveaway is international and you can choose any book, with a value up to $20, from the Book Depository.




As always, my giveaway will be incredibly easy to enter. One click and you're in! I think it would be super if you checked out The Relentless Reader on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and/or Instagram but I'm sure not going to force you to do so.

The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 10/26/14




Has another week gone by already? Is it just me or is fall zipping on by at a crazy pace? Cripes. (Time seems to go faster and faster as I get older and older. Not fair!)

Currently Reading:

I'm not sure what I'm going to start today. I need to assess my mood, check out my stacks, and make a decision later on.

Around the Blogosphere:


The read-along books for Nonfiction November have been announced. I'll definitely be reading one of these.


Check out this Bookish Q&A from Katie at Words for Worms. I might have to steal these questions for my own blog very soon.

In My Neck of the Woods:

I've started re-watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's as amazing as I remember.

Picard approves.
It's the first show I was obsessed with. It's the show that inspired my first tattoo. It's the show that roused my great love for Patrick Stewart. I'm ridiculously happy to be watching it again. 

What's up with YOU? What are you reading? Cooking? Watching? Let me know in the comments.
