Three Week Hiatus

I hate to do this, but I need to take a little hiatus from blogging. I’m not too happy with the content I’ve been putting out lately. I know I can do better, but I’ve run out of new fresh ideas. Everything I can think up has been done already, sometimes, even by my own self. I’m hoping a little break can give me some new ideas. School is eating up my time too. Between homework, studying for tests, and other obligations, I feel like […]

Investigated – Do you judge books by their covers?

Investigated – Do you judge books by their covers?

“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is a saying we have all heard. But do you follow it? I would like to think I do, but I would be lying if I said I did. I have a confession to make… Yes, I do judge books by their cover. Sadly, I’m more likely to read a book if it has a well designed, pretty cover, than if it has a more poorly designed cover. Is this a bad thing? Probably, but I promise, I […]

Review – The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin

Review – The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin

Review: The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone tells the story of… wait for it…. Addison Stone, a promising artist full of talent and skill who died tragically and way too young. The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone made Addison seem so real. Like she was a legit real person and not just a character. I actually thought I was reading a biography until I tried to look her up and all I got was this book. I didn’t even realize it was fiction until halfway […]

Thoughtful – What are your favorite types of posts to read and write?

Thoughtful – What are your favorite types of posts to read and write?

Love to Write Memes are my favorite to write because they are the easiest, fastest, and simplest to post. I have a template so I just plug stuff in and I’m all set. It only takes like 5-10 minutes to write a meme and schedule. JK. I’m just kidding. Personally, I like writing my discussion posts the best, especially my Investigated ones. Thoughtful is fun to write too, but it more blogging related while Investigated is more book related. And as much as I love […]

Waiting on Wednesday – Unleashed by Sophie Jordan

Waiting on Wednesday – Unleashed by Sophie Jordan

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. I loved reading the first book in the series, Uninvited (you can check out my review of it here) so of course I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel. Hopefully it’ll be just as good, if not better. What are you waiting on?

7 Types of Readers

7 Types of Readers

Okay before I start I have to include that there are more than 7 types of readers. And no matter what anyone else says or thinks, you definitely can be more than one type. Cover Lover This one is simple. You love covers. You don’t necessarily judge a book by its cover, but let’s just say you’re wayy more likely to read it, the prettier its cover is. Chances are the books in you collection all have lovely covers that are eye candy for book […]

Investigated – What’s the Difference Between Young Adult and New Adult?

Investigated – What’s the Difference Between Young Adult and New Adult?

What’s the difference between Young Adult (YA) and New Adult (NA)? The answer to the question is seemingly pretty simple. It all lies in the name. Most people in the publishing world consider books about characters around 14 – 21 years old, teenagers experiencing the transition between childhood and being teen. On the other hand, NA is typically about characters 18 – 26 years old who are experiencing the transition between being a teenager to being an adult. In YA characters are usually in high […]
