Ditching Blogging for Instagram?

Ditching Blogging for Instagram?

You know you’ve been watching too many YouTube videos when your post titles are like basic clickbait links. This post should really be titled: I’m Not Ditching Blogging for Instagram but Book Blogging isn’t as Cool as Bookstagram, but that’s too long so… Whatever, that’s off topic. I’m really not ditching blogging for Instagram…-ish. Eh, you know, Instagram is a pretty fun place (for me at least). I like styling pictures, taking them, editing them, posting them, and interacting with other book lovers on Instagram. […]

Review – The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions) by Amy Spalding

Review – The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions) by Amy Spalding

Review: The New Guy (and Other Senior Year Distractions) is a cute novel about Jules, a high achiever, and her struggles in the beginning of her senior year. Some of those struggles just so happen to be caused by the new guy, Alex, a former boy band member. The New Guy does a great job weaving Jules’ story together. The first few months of her last year in high school are not dominated by a single issue and this novel does a fantastic job fitting […]

5 Reading Essentials

5 Reading Essentials

I tend to have a lot of reading “essentials”, most of which I don’t use on a frequent basis. That being said, since it’s currently spring break aka vacation time, I thought I’d share with you my top 5, most used ones. Basically the ones I would bring with me if I was going on vacation.

Letting Blogging Take a Back Seat

Letting Blogging Take a Back Seat

Ever since I became serious about blogging, I always tried my best to prioritize it. Of course, school still ruled my life (it still does), but blogging came in a good second. It was something I loved doing. Something that was so fulfilling for me in so many ways. The problem is, the more I did, the more it seemed like an unpaid job. There is just so much work that goes into running a blog. You have to write a post, edit it, create […]

Review – Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne

Review – Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne

Review: I read Poison Dance after I read Midnight Thief even though it was written as a prequel so oops. Anyways, I thought Poison Dance was a really interesting novella to read. Poison Dance provides a bit of a backstory on James, one of the secondary characters in Midnight Thief. It does a really good job giving more insight on how James became… well, James. At least, the James in Midnight Thief. It explains how some of his opinions and attitudes were shaped and how […]
