Thoughts on Handmaid’s Tale

This is going to show everyone how pathetically behind on writing posts I am. This post was originally drafted in 2017…. in April. Pathetic. But I’ve also read this book multiple times, had many discussions about it and watched season one. It’s ingrained in my brain. Way back in early 2017 I reread The Handmaid’s […]

My New Reading Obsession?

Last month I read 11 books. That was insane. It didn’t feel as though I read that many books, so I wanted to know if whatever I was doing was sustainable. I obviously love books and obviously want to read as many as possible. My TBR This month is 15 books. I just finished one […]

The Book Ban(ish)

I’m pretty sure most people know this by now, but I have eight bookshelves. Mainly full. They would all be full but one of them I use for books I own that I’ve read in the current year. This bookcase so far has six books, plus two others that people are borrowing, and one I’m […]

I Believe in… Libraries

The past couple months I have spent more hours in my hometown library than I have since senior year finals. Being there reminds me of the hours looking for books, writing a five page paper in Spanish in two days and now writing cover letters. The library is full of stories you can get for […]

I’m Thankful For…

For some reason this year I’m not in the shopping mood. I didn’t do Black Friday, or Small Business Saturday or Cyber Monday. I probably should have and gotten some gifts bought but partially due to the fact I worked all weekend I didn’t. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas we focus so much on what we […]

Top Series I want to Reread

Recently I have been in the nostalgic mood, looking through some of my old stuff and thinking about books I read when I was younger. Whether that means in fourth grade or high school, either ones I liked, didn’t, or series I never finished. I don’t normally reread books, but there are some I just […]

Spooky Read Recommendations

It’s Halloween month and that means it’s time for spooky reads recommendations that I know everyone is doing. However, thrillers, mysteries and horror have become my go genre, especially this past summer. I don’t really know why but I have found so many good ones and have so many still on my list to read.

Readathons: Talk for Tea Time

Readathons are a wonderful thing. I love seeing them, participating in them and seeing what everyone else is reading (my TBR gets so much longer every time I participate). Over the summer I participated in a couple different ones and learned a lot about my reading habits. A readathon is when a group of people […]

If You Like This, Try This

As I read more and more books every year it’s impossible not to draw parallels between the different books. I don’t necessarily like reading books if they are too similar, so a couple of these I don’t like because they are so similar. However, I do know  a lot of people don’t mind similar books […]

Five tips to Five Miles

Three weeks ago I ran five miles outside for the first time. Last week I ran six. If you had told me back in May that I’d do that I’d laugh at you, but I have a lot more time on my hands now to run when I want to. Seeing the progress has made […]

My dashboard of WordPress and Bloglovin’ are filled with spooky book recommendations. That was going to be my post for today, but then I decided to do something slightly different. I decided to share the list of spooky reads I want to get to this year.

So… What now?

My life has been split into semesters for the past 18 years. That is insane! It’s strange to think now my calendar can have all the months instead of just having September to May. It’s strange to think in September I won’t be sitting in a classroom filled with some people I know but a […]

Changes galore!

Since March of last year I have been writing on two blogs. I didn’t want to spam everyone with a ton of posts about books when they just wanted to hear about travel and I had the time to write two blogs.

Creating a Reading Nook

I would like to think I am one of those people who can read anywhere after all I used to be able to tune out everything. However, as I grew older more and more things began to distract me from reading, whether it be my mom or roommate talking, worries about homework or adult responsibilities, […]

Top WTF endings of 2015

With the end of 2015 closing in I’ve decided to recap the most “What just happened” endings in 2015. Some of these happened 75% through the book and other times it was on the very last page. There is one or two on this list in which I am still mad about, but since they […]
