Hey guys! I love doing tags, but I’m absolutely terrible at actually doing and keeping up with them. Alas, I went through my drafts, and I found the Fall-time Cozy-time book tag! It looks like fun, and I’m glad to be finally doing it. 🙂 Thanks so much to Analee @ Book Snacks for tagging me! The original creator was Sam from Sam’s Nonsense, so kudos to her for these lovely prompts. 😉 Continue reading
Hey guys! I preordered Turtles All the Way Down, John Green’s new book, a couple of months ago, and I actually got my copy a day early! It was, indeed, signed, and of course I immediately had to dig in. Since it only came out a few days ago, I thought I’d review it (wow, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these) and just share my thoughts in general!

Turtles All the Way Down is an incredible, down-to-earth story about a 16-year-old girl named Aza who deals with a difficult mental illness in the form of thought spirals. Oh, and on the side, she’s trying to maintain her friendships, possibly fall in love (without kissing), and track down a missing billionaire. Continue reading
Hey guys, I’m back as promised! This is my first ever OFFICIAL monthly TBR. I’ve been wanting to do one of these for AGES, but I’ve never gotten around to it. I think that if I make one, though, I’ll stick to it. Otherwise I think I’d just, ah, ignore some of these. Oops? Alrighty then…
Hey guys! So, I disappeared for a bit there…
About a month, to be exact. I’m sorry about that! I needed a break, but I kept meaning to post something explaining an official hiatus, and I never got around to it. Boo. Not cool. To be honest, I got really into BookTube (still am) and I lost sight of what I really loved about blogging for a while there. Recently, however, I have rekindled my spark, and I am ready to dive back in! I do plan to take my blog back to its basics, which probably means 1-2 posts a week if I’m busy/uninspired, and some more reviews and tags. I have a lot of fun with those and I just psych myself up so much to do them that they become super intimidating. Anyway, that’s that. Let’s move on, shall we? Continue reading
Hey guys! I’m currently participating in… A lot of readathons, but as some of you may know, I am planning to participate in the Hogwarts Cramathon! It’s a 24 hour readathon, happening on the 18th, with challenges on the days leading up to it. I announced it in my list of August readathons and made a tentative TBR (which I already think will change) as well! Anyhoo, the first two challenges are up (as, after all, it is the second day of challenges), and they look super fun, so I figured I’d put my two cents in! Here goes! Continue reading
Hey guys! A few days ago I posted a TBR for The Reading Quest as well as the 7 in 7 readathon, and I am pleased to update you with GOOD NEWS! (Well, mostly) I finished the last 100 pages of Uprooted (which I was reading for #MakeMeRead) on the 14th (first day of 7 in 7, second day of TRQ), and then was able to read the first 70 pages of Book of Shadows before I went to bed. I finished the last 100 pages of BoS today (the 15th) and then was able to knock out Ronit & Jamil in an hour, so I am now 2 books down for both! Unfortunately, I didn’t really love either one, so I figured I’d combine them both in a double review for you guys! Let’s just get started, shall we? Continue reading
Hey guys! Yesterday I posted my #TheReadingQuest TBR, and I mentioned that I had decided to join the 7 in 7 read-a-thon last minute. I had heard of it before but wasn’t planning on joining until it was 2 am on the 11th and all of a sudden I was creating a TBR. Whoops?
If you don’t know, the 7 in 7 readathon is basically all about reading seven things in seven days. They don’t even have to be books! It can be books, short stories, anthologies, magazines, graphic novels, comics, anything, but the goal is to read seven of them. It’s hosted by Ashley @ Said the Story, and she’s enlisted 6 other BookTubers to host some Twitter sprints throughout the week as well! It’s extremely relaxed and it’s just meant to be fun and a great way to get those reading juices flowing!
Alright, let’s get into my TBR! I’ve picked seven (mostly short) books that I aim to read (obviously), but I have a few alternates that I may end up reading instead, depending on my mood! (Covers will be linked to their respective Goodreads pages!) Continue reading
