Jingle All the Way Book Tag

Jingle All the Way book tag

Eek! Thanks so much to Anna @ Adventures With a Book Nerd for the tag! This tag was created by The Left Handed Book Lover. It’s the first day of “unofficial” bookmas, so I figured, why not start off with a Christmas-y tag? Alright, let’s get right into the questions! Continue reading

December TBR: Christmas books, catch-up, and more!

DecemberTBR_.png

Hey guys! It’s December first… Crazy, right??? This year has gone so fast. Especially the first semester of the school year, haha! In any case, I’m hoping my TBR for this month won’t be too crazy, although I haven’t planned it out yet, so… We’ll just have to see! I have a few Christmas-themed books that I really want to get to, some carry-over from last month’s TBR, and a couple of other challenges that I’d like to complete. Let’s get into it!

I wish you a Merry Christmas (and that I had read more)!

Eeeeeek! Merry Christmas everybody!!!

(Or Chanukah, whatever you celebrate in this wonderful holiday season!)

Um, I got a camera?

My lovely parents BOUGHT ME A CAMERA. It was on my list, but I didn’t know if I would get it. I actually said that it didn’t have to be fancy, so if I did get one, I was expecting something really simple. IT HAS WIFI AND BLUETOOTH AND IT CONNECTS TO MY IPOD AND IT’S SO FANCY IT CONFUSES ME AND I LOVE IT. So yes, before you ask, the picture above is taken with my camera. And that’s my Christmas tree this year (it’s a real tree)! 🙂 Anyhoo, hopefully you guys would be excited for me about a random camera anyways, but the REAL reason I wanted it is…

BOOKSTAGRAM.

Um, I fail at bookstagram all the time. So this is only part of the reason. But with such an easy, quick way to send pictures to my iPod and then to upload to Instagram, that makes it all so much more fun!

Stock photos?

Is that what you call them? You know, the pictures (you can get them from places like Unsplash) used for backgrounds to blog headers, titles, etc. I live in a small town, and recently I’ve started to notice that… Everything is gorgeous? And I think it would be really fun to use my own pictures for blog headers. Plus, that makes everything easier for me; instead of trying to find one specific kind of picture, I can just take my own! Hopefully the viewing experience will still be just as good or improved for you guys! 🙂

Moving on…

Now that I’ve squealed about my OWN CAMERA OMG EEK let’s move on with our lives, shall we? I mentioned yesterday that I might participate in some of the “Top 16 of 2016” challenges, and I love today’s topic, so of course I had to join in!

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:
