I’M SO EXCITED!!!! Why? Wouldn’t you like to know!

Fortunately, I’m, ah, not evil??? AND I WANT TO SHARE THE EXCITEMENT.

YOU GUYS. I GOT A DOMAIIIIIIIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m not sure if I ever really talked about it, but for my birthday, my aunt BOUGHT ME A DOMAIN. (If you’re massively confused, it’s the URL at the top of your screen. Yeah, that thing!) And therefore, if you’re reading this, I hope you can easily see all of the changes! My URL has changed from abookwormsperfectapple.wordpress.com to burstingwithbooks.com, and I’ve changed the header and background of the site to match! I’m working on making all of my social media, etc., match it, but if you’re just used to typing in abookwormsperfectapple.wordpress.com, don’t worry; the old URL will automatically redirect to burstingwithbooks.com!

A Merry Little Christmas Chat!

Hey guys, it’s Amy! Sit tight, because as the category says, this is mostly just a talkedy-talk post. First of all- I haven’t posted in a while, and honestly, I’m just in a little blogging slump. Like I said before, once my scheduled posts were gone, I guess I just didn’t really know what to do with myself. And ironically, it is apparently very difficult to just start up a post on a very blank piece (more like screen) of white. Ironic because that is the only way to start- from the beginning, that is. MY GOODNESS. I sound so fancy. And I’m talking in circles. In any case, I’ve missed you guys, and I’m working on a new blogging schedule (on paper), which was inspired by Anna @ Herding Cats and Burning Soup’s blogging planner (*eyes sparkle*), so hopefully that works out for me. 🙂 In any case! I recently opened up my Goodreads (because that’s what book addicts do; they look at more books until their TBRs are a million miles long and don’t actually read any of the books) and saw my 2016 reading challenge. It was horrifying and I am scarred for life:

OMIGOSH I MISSED YOU ALL SO MUUUUUCH!!!

SOB. I HAD TO ACTUALLY, LITERALLY, LOG IN TO WORDPRESS BECAUSE I WAS GONE SO LONG. YOU GUYS. I’M SO EXCITED I CAN BARELY TYPE. OH, AND OF COURSE, IT’S AMY. I HOPE YOU GUYS HAVEN’T ALL UNSUBSCRIBED BECAUSE I WAS GONE SO LONG. OH NO. OH. NO. DID I LITERALLY JUST SAY UNSUBSCRIBED??? OH NO…. I’VE BEEN WATCHING SO MUCH YOUTUBE. THIS IS CRAZY. OKAY THE ENTIRE POST WILL JUST BE CAPS AND NONE OF YOU WILL UNDERSTAND ME UNLESS I MAKE THIS INTO A NICE LITTLE ORGANIZED LIST FOR YA, SO HERE GOES.

Just your typical boring Tuesday announcements….

Well, I suppose they’re not really typical. Ahem. Hey guys, it’s Amy! Recently, I read Cait @ Paper Fury’s post about why/how she’s going on hiatus. And I thought to myself, “I couldn’t ever take an intentional hiatus.” And then I thought…. whyever not? I mean, stats… And blogging is my life… But other than that, I have no particular need to blog every single day, every week, every month, or at all. I’M NOT LEAVING FOR GOOD. DON’T WORRY. But I’ve just realized that it took me about two weeks to read as many books, and I’m too tired and I don’t have enough time to blog. I don’t have the writing juice. And I would like to work on actual writing- ahem, story writing. (This is real writing, right?) And reading. And setting up all of my Instagram photos for October- I’m actually going to try to go the whole month this time! Not to mention Twitter. Or the huge disappointment that I will explain in just a minute. I no longer have all the time in the world and absolutely no schedule. I have SCHOOL. And I’m working on Blogwarts right now as well! Can I do all of these at the same time? Well, I would like to think so. I believe I can. But I have to get a handle on it all, and I have to WANT to do it. I don’t have any time whatsoever to do things I don’t want to do, so I want to narrow it down to the things I do. STILL NOT SAYING I WANT TO LEAVE THE BLOG. I just need to chill out a bit. And thus, I’m announcing a hiatus! I plan on coming back on October 1st, but it could be a little later if I start enjoying myself too much. 😉 I’ll be starting work on the Blog Ahead Challenge regardless. But I just need a little break. Continue reading

My Autobiography :) <3 And yes, it's completely entertaining and great. You. Will. LOVE. It. OK?!?!?!?!?!! *smiles sweetly*

Okay, guys! Gonna’ get right to it here! Actually I’m not, becauseeeeee… I owe you guys an apology! I haven’t posted in forever, anddddddd I’m sorry. (NFA: it’s Nikki, in case you haven’t noticed. I would never do that…. *scoffs as turns to own post*) I will explain the reason in a bit. I also skipped Recently Finished Friday, which is a new meme I’m starting for you newcomers (Hi, welcome! Love ya!). I mean, how can I expect you guys to do this (Which would be great, by the way. Hint hint. Please please.) if I can’t even keep with it! (NFA: *cough cough*) So yes, I’m sorry, especially if you missed me! (Doubtful but hoping. Eternally.) Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get down to the reason I’m here, besides the fact that I totally missed you. Okay, so I haven’t been reading in forever. (I’m gonna’ get to that.) So this post isn’t about books at all. (Well, just a little. I’ve started reading The Secrets We Keep today, and I really like it.) Instead, I’m going to do a little autobiography on my GREAT day today and the few not-so-good that I had been having. Continue reading

For the first time, I am actually making some good progress!

It’s taken me four days of being so incredibly annoyed with myself to pick up the pace and get something done! This endeavor may actually be possible now… Gasp! Haha. For any newbies out there, (HI, I’M AMY AND I HOPE YOU LIKE CRAZINESS AND BOOKS BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT I’M HERE FOR) it’s Rereads Week! Yay!
