As per usual I’m surprised that tomorrow is already the first of a new month, but I’ll save you all from that spiel. 228 other people have used it, I’m sure, and tonight I don’t particularly feel like echoing that for the 229th time. 😉 March was definitely my most … interesting month of 2017… Continue reading March Wrap Up (Where My Life is More Complicated Than Usual)
Over the weekend I had a little makeup shopping spree at the dollar store and discovered Anisha’s amazing blog, Sprinkled Pages. If you’re wondering how in the world those two are even remotely similar, let me explain. I got 10 eye-shadow palettes in a wide variety of colors. I want to experiment and have fun… Continue reading New Features on My Blog + How to Make Three Dark Crowns Cupcakes
Because, you know, that’s totally the logical choice. Happy Friday guys! I was having trouble thinking of a post to write, and then got an idea when I remembered something Ashleigh did back in December. I’m sure you all can relate when I say my TBR is huge. It’s at about 260 books on Goodreads,… Continue reading What Do You Do When Your TBR is Huge? Add More Books!
(Look, it’s a bookish post! Hooray! … Okay, let’s move on.) For many reviewers, the most difficult thing to do, aside from actually writing the review itself, is deciding on a star rating. Because while the majority of us do use the star system, ratings tend to mean different things to different people. For example,… Continue reading Discussion: Am I Too Generous With My 5-Star Rating?
Happy first day of spring! Well, sort of. It’s currently 46 degrees (Fahrenheit) where I am, and it won’t be going above 60 all week. It’s also going to rain a lot, which I don’t really like, but at least it isn’t snow. I guess I’m trying to say that it doesn’t feel like spring… Continue reading My Monday Musings #17 – Stress, Spring, and Small Joys
I’m not really sure how to write an intro for a post like this, so I’ll just get straight to the point. Last week I created a loose posting schedule to start using in preparation for school starting again in August. I know this current school year isn’t over yet, but I want to be… Continue reading A Brief Update and Possible Hiatus
I’m not entirely sure why, but one of the first things to cross my mind when I woke up this morning was that I don’t talk about stand-alone books nearly enough on my blog. That led to the idea of a list of my favorite stand-alones, only for me to realize it would be a… Continue reading 11 Stand-Alone Books on My TBR
That moment when you think “I should write a blog post” and then realize you have no idea what to write a post about. Or when you get ready to actually write a blog post and then you can’t think of a good way to start it. Does that happen to anyone else? It happens to… Continue reading Series I Wish Had More Books
You do homework/chores/errands/etc. in record time. You make excuses to read rather than socialize. You have a book you want to finish and an endless stack to choose from when you do. You’re ready to binge-read… …and then you get a notification on your phone. Maybe Twitter, or Instagram, or the newest mobile game you… Continue reading Things I Do When I Could Be Reading // My Reading Routine
We’ve all been in this spot before: read an amazing book, finish it, and then not know what to do with yourself. I don’t know who came up with the term book hangover, but it really is accurate. I find it’s especially accurate if applied to waiting a year for the sequel or if there’s a… Continue reading 20 Books That Gave Me a Book Hangover
