How Is It August Already????

How Is It August Already????

I decided to change things up and try out monthly recaps instead of weekly ones, which I’m now calling ‘State of the Blog’. I’m linking this one up to two memes: Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 🙂 Looking Back on July July flew by so fast. I can’t believe I only have a few more weeks of freedom before I have to go back to school. It’s kind of sad – I had all […]

Review – What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy

Review – What Goes Up by Katie Kennedy

Setting the Scene: 5 Word Summary Wonderfully written hilarious sci-fi adventure. Mood Before Reading Craving a fluffy contemporary or epic fantasy Review: What Goes Up is about a bunch of teens who are competing to be on a NASA team and what happens after they make it. It features two main characters, Rosa and Eddie. They’re sort of opposites and come from different worlds (figuratively… at first). Oh, and there’s an alternative reality. Words cannot describe how much I love this book. It’s the best […]

5 Dorm Essentials You Didn’t Know You Needed

It’s almost August which means I have school on the brain. And most of it involves my dorm, not my academics. 😅 So I’m starting on dorm series on this blog since I’m a rising sophomore in college and I have a lot of tips I want to share. I hope you’ll find them all at least somewhat helpful. Today I want to talk about 5 items. Some of them, I used a lot my Freshman year way more than I thought I would. Others, […]

The End and New Beginning of My Love Affair With Reading

The End and New Beginning of My Love Affair With Reading

Can you fall out of love with reading? It seems stupid to ask as I’m running a book blog but can you? Because for the last four years or so it feels like I have. How else can you explain the constant reading slumps, the nonexistent urge to read that used to be so strong, or just feeling meh about every. single. book. you pick up? Or maybe it’s not that I no longer love books or reading, but I just don’t care enough. Or […]

Do you bring books with you on vacation?

Do you bring books with you on vacation?

I’m going to be spending a lot of time away from home, on the road, this month, with what my mom’s claiming to be “weekend getaways”. What she really means is we’ll be going on a college visiting spree. 😣 Anyways, back to the whole point of this post, what books do you bring with you one vacation? Do you even bring any books at all? Typically, I don’t bring any physical books. They’re heavy and take up space… and my mom doesn’t always approve […]

State of the Blog – June 2017

State of the Blog – June 2017

I decided to change things up and try out monthly recaps instead of weekly ones, which I’m now calling ‘State of the Blog’. I’m linking this one up to two memes: Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 🙂 Looking Back on June June was a month of nothing. Besides celebrating my birthday and going to see Wonder Woman, I didn’t really do anything interesting. Just me being lazy. And super unmotivated. But summer is flying […]
