March Nerdy Post Unboxing // Young Adult // SPOILERS!

I don’t think that I’ve seen any unboxings for Nerdy Post on anyone’s blog?  As far as swag boxes go, I don’t think I’ve overstitching to say that it’s one of the more popular, reliable ones.  Even though it’s a bookish box that doesn’t contain a book, I think it’s a pretty good box if you’re interested in the theme and are looking for some fun swag items for Instagram, or to spruce up your personal space. Nerdy Post has a few different levels of boxes, depending on what you’d like included.  The cost of these boxes range from $9.95 […]

The Birthday Book Tag

The Birthday Book Tag

Hi everyone! Guess what!!! Yup!  I know you thought it was last year, but turns out it is kind of an annual thing. So for fun, I thought I would do this cool Birthday Book tag I saw over on Laughing Listener last December! It looks like this was originally created by Brunette Bibliophile over on YouTube.  Have y’all ever noticed how BookTube comes up with the best tags?  Both are great bookish stops – one blog and one vlog – so check them out if you’ve got a second. 🙂 And without further ado… the Birthday Book Tag! Count […]

Inconceivable!  It’s a Princess Bride Book Tag!

Inconceivable! It’s a Princess Bride Book Tag!

I love A Princess Bride. The first time I saw it, I was a freshman in high school on vacation with my (obsessed) friend, and I just didn’t get it.  I mean, what’s so great about this story?  Cheesy romance, overacting, I don’t get it. Then I watched it again.  And again.  Then I got it – all that was the point.  Then I read the book, which is super funny, and now I’m a huge fan. Last year, when Em @ The Keystroke Blog posted this tag, I knew I had to steal it.  I couldn’t help myself.  It’s been sitting in my […]

The Stranger Things Book Tag

The Stranger Things Book Tag

Who else is all sorts of excited for season three of Stranger Things?  How many more months? It feels like a small eternity! I came across this tag at Sarah Sunbeemz and I loved it.  It seemed like just the thing to help pass the time until the next season. 🙂 EPIC INTRO The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.  I loved the opening line of that book: “Kell wore a very peculiar coat.” DUNGEONS & […]

A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

Delilah Bard stole my heart. While I am a fan of excellent heroines, very few capture me the way Lila did.  The minute she swooped into this book, speaking of her swashbuckling dreams, I was entirely on board. A Darker Shade of Magic isn’t about Lila, though.  Not really.  It’s about Kell and the Antari who travel through worlds, and a bit of corrupted Black London that has found its way into his unwitting hands.  It’s about danger and sacrifice and courage and stubbornness and Lila is very much just along for the ride.  And who came blame her?  With London […]

December Wrap Up and MERRY CHRISTMAS

Merry Christmas my loves! I hope you are all having a lovely day with friends and family if you celebrate.  It’s okay, you can read this post tomorrow.  I’d rather you celebrated!
