May Wrap Up

May Wrap Up

April showers bring May flowers. And the end of May is the start of Summer.Wow! For the first time ever in my blogging career, I have enough time to write a wrap up post. Then again, I’ve only been blogging for a little while (around 6 months), so that really isn’t saying much… But anyways, my point is, I’m kinda new to end of the month posts. I like the idea of them, but I usually don’t have enough time to even think about one, […]

Armchair BEA Day 1 – Classics

Armchair BEA Day 1 – Classics

Design credit: Nina of Nina ReadsOkay, I’ll admit it right now, I’m not really a classics girl. Don’t blame me – I like modern stuff. But that doesn’t mean I hate reading classics. The main reason why classics aren’t usually my thing is, well according to my seventh grade teacher, I can be a plot junkie – someone who reads solely for the storyline of the book. In a sense, she’s right. But she’s not totally right. I do enjoy reading the different language classics […]

Armchair BEA Day 1 – Introductions

Design credit: Nina of Nina ReadsThis year will be my first year participating in Armchair Book Expo America, also known as Armchair BEA. I’m so excited! But on the other hand, I’m kind of disappointed I can’t actually go to the real BEA in New York. I mean come on, I live around a 2-3 hour car ride (or an hour train ride) away from New York City. It’s not like I have to fly there to go. But my mom won’t let me go… […]

Investigated – Rating Books

Investigated – Rating Books

Everyone rates books differently. That much is obvious. Each blogger has a different rating system, a different method for rating books, and, most importantly, different reasons for rating a book a certain way. Rating SystemEvery blog uses a different system to rate blogs. Some blogs use stars, some use hearts, some use other symbols. This blog falls under the third category. Here, I use snowflakes to rate books. Why snowflakes? It kind of ties in with the icy cold theme I have going on. Why the theme? […]
