Hey everyone!! I hope you had a fantastic September. This has been... kind of a weird month for me. I started school the last week of August and it took a couple weeks to get the hang of again. Because of that I was pretty slumpy, which was agony. But this time I tried something … Continue reading September Wrap-Up // 6 month blogiversary + Q&A // IT’S OCTOBER
Hey! Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday @ The Broke and The Bookish. Today's prompt is, "top ten books on your fall TBR." I could pretend that I'm not listing ten books because I ran out of ideas, but it's really because I'm kind of lazy and formatting posts takes long enough as … Continue reading Top 5 Books On My Fall TBR
Since I started using Goodreads about a year ago, I have put 15 books on my 1-star shelf. And for every single one of those books, seeing that 1-star rating makes me feel so guilty. There are a few reasons for this. One is that, to me, rating a book 1-star feels like saying "this … Continue reading Discussion: Why I Want to Stop Rating Books One Star
Hey everyone! A while ago, I mentioned how excited I was about my current WIP. I have been wanting to share some of it with you guys for a while.

Hey everyone! I hope your August was great. I can't believe it's over! Where has this year gone? I feel so old... Excitingly, my blog turned six months old yesterday!! I'll have a "celebration" post up in a few days (hopefully) and I will try to think about some fun things to talk about. Until … Continue reading August Wrap-Up // 6 month blogiversary, almost-fame, and too many long books.
Hi! Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday @ The Broke and the Bookish. Today's theme was "Back to School Freebie," so I'm pretending this list fits that theme. It was inspired by it, though, so maybe that counts? xD. I'm completely hopeless at reading classics. It's funny, though, because I was actually pretty … Continue reading 5 Classics I Really Should Have Read By Now // Failed attempts + childhood trauma.
Hey!! I've been thinking about how fun bookish tags are, and I decided it might be cool to make my own!! This is The Once Upon a Time Book Tag, and it's all about "firsts" in your reading life. Obviously it might be hard to remember all of these, but that's why most are "first … Continue reading The Once Upon a Time Book Tag
Hey! I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday @ The Broke and the Bookish for today's post. The theme was "10 Book Recommendations for __." Obviously, there are not ten suggestions in this post, because 1) the number 7 is so much better than the number 10 and 2) there is a tragic scarcity of YA … Continue reading 7 Historical Fiction Book Recommendations for people who don’t read Historical Fiction
I'm not one of those bloggers who gets all the arcs. I do get some from my favorite bookstore - and I am incredibly lucky in that way - but I'm not that person who gets several a week, and I definitely don't get a ton of super popular ones! One thing I've noticed as … Continue reading Do ARCs affect reading enjoyment? // Are they really that big of a deal?
