Out With the New and In With the Old?

Out With the New and In With the Old?

If you know me, you’ll probably know one the things I like to complain the most about is lack of originality. These days, everything seems like a remake, a sequel, or based off of something else. Where did the new ideas go? But I’m not here today to talk about the lack of new stories. We actually have quite a bit of those these days if you look past archetypes. And we’re certainly not lacking new books. But sometimes I wonder where are the new […]

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 […]

New Month, New Look, New Blog… Sort Of

New Month, New Look, New Blog… Sort Of

I kinda took a big break from blogging. I felt like I kept running face first into a wall over and over and over and over and you get the point. But now the muse has returned. Turns out all I really needed to do was to change up my design a little and suddenly I have way more blogging inspiration. The funny thing is (it really isn’t funny, more like pathetic), today is my last day of summer break. Yep, that’s right, I go […]

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 […]

Bookish Costume – Graceling

Bookish Costume – Graceling

Okay, so the reason why this post isn’t called “Bookish Costume – The Seven Kingdoms” is because really the only character I have costumes for is Katsa. I couldn’t get into Fire and right now, can barely remember reading Bitterblue. So really, it’s only Graceling that I have enough knowledge of to compile a somewhat accurate costume. Some Info About Katsa Katsa is a Graceling so she has two different colored eyes. One green, one blue. She has dark hair that is often knotted and […]

Bookish Costume – The Morganville Vampires

Bookish Costume – The Morganville Vampires

In honor of the trailer of the Morganville Vampires web series being released (and it’s October 27th premiere date), I decided to showcase some Eve and Claire costumes… Eve Eve is often described as a goth who sometimes takes it really far and dresses elaborately, like the right side of the picture. But she can dress causal too, as pictured on the left side. She has heavy boots and really into wearing gothic makeup, such as dark lipstick, eye liner, and powder. If you want […]

Bookish Costumes – The Mortal Instruments

Bookish Costumes – The Mortal Instruments

To celebrate the announcement that TMI is being turned into a TV show, I’ve decided that today’s costume will be that of shadowhunters. Okay, fine, I just wanted to give you guys a reason to dress up as a badass (sorry for my language, let me know if you have a better word) without saying you’re dressing up as a badass (because now you can say you’re dressing up as a shadowhunter). Jeez, I do love run on sentences. Anyways… Disclaimer: I do not own […]

Bookish Costumes – Percy Jackson

Bookish Costumes – Percy Jackson

In honor of the last book involving Percy Jackson’s publication this week, this week’s costume is, wait for it… inspired by Percy Jackson! Now, it’s been a while since I’ve read the series so please forgive me if I got some of the details wrong. Percy Jackson Percy’s described as having messy black hair and sea green eyes. So if you want to wear a wig and contacts, you know what to get. As for his clothing and items well… Note, you might have to […]

Moving to WordPress

Why I Moved I moved for a lot of different reasons. First off, I was kind of getting tired of the limited options Blogger had. Sure I could edit my blog design to my heart’s content, but I wanted more. I wanted to be able to use plugins to make my life easier. I wanted to be able to stop worrying whether Google was just decide one day that they didn’t like my blog and yank it out of the blogosphere (yes, Google actually can […]
