Quite a while ago, Shannon @ Typically Shannon and I talked about her doing a guest post for my blog. Obviously, it happened, but our communications were a bit confused for a while there, and her post got a tad lost (totally my fault, oops!). You’ll see very quickly when this was written. 😉 However, it’s absolutely still relevant, as Trump’s inauguration is still quite fresh in most of our minds. And I, for one, cannot wait to read this book! Aaaaaaand over to Shannon:

Only a few days ago, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.

With thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of people protesting day and night against Trump and his horrific ways, it is important that we too focus on the positive and beautiful aspects of the LGBT+ community, and help amplify their voices in such a tough and negative time.

A Bookworm’s Relationship with the Common Read-a-thon


Hello everyone, it’s Amy (well, not for long)! Recently, I posted on Twitter, asking about anyone interested in guest posting on my blog. I got a couple of takers, and I was super excited! Recently, I did a guest post on Kendra @ Reads and Treats’ blog, and after I responded to her query, I pushed out my own. I’ve been thinking about guest posting/having guest posts for a while now, and especially with school starting, etc., a guest post here every now and then could be really good for me. Feel free to comment below, email me, or tweet me if you’re interested! Anyhoo, my first guest post (EVER!!!) comes from Anna @ Adventures With a Book Nerd! Take it away, Anna! Continue reading
