The Wonderstruck Book Tag // Taylor Swift + Books= YES!

The Wonderstruck Book Tag // Taylor Swift + Books= YES!

Welcome, loves, to the first book tag this year!  Tags are something I enjoy on the blog, and I absolutely intend to keep them up, especially because it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers, and add a bit of a fun list-style post to the daily roundup. January’s tag is one I stole from Purely Olivia, and one she posted about this time last year.  This tag combines Taylor Swift and books, which is a fun combo, and Olivia created it herself!  I very rarely talk about music on this blog (except for tags like The Song Request […]

2019: My Year in Books!

2019: My Year in Books!

Good morning everyone!  How has the beginning of 2020 gone for everyone so far?  Has everyone stuck to their New Years Resolutions?  I’m rubbish at resolutions, if I’m being completely honest, but one of my big ones this year is to take better care of myself physically – sleep, hydration, diet, etc.  I mean, most people have that, right?  Here’s hoping that I can keep to it, and you all are doing amazingly on your resolutions as well! Every year, I do a bit of a review on my blog to look at all the reading I did in the […]

My Absolute Favorite Ten Books of 2019!

My Absolute Favorite Ten Books of 2019!

New Years Eve is a day where many people take time to reflect on the year that has passed and all the things have done, the people we’ve spent time with, the places we’ve been… and in the case of book bloggers, the books we’ve read. Of course, this year is a big one, because not only is today the end of a year, but it’s an end of a decade.  I’m going to keep it simple and just keep it to 2019, but this has been a crazy decade!  Over the course of the last ten years, I’ve graduated […]

Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag: 2019 Edition

Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag: 2019 Edition

It’s that time again! Every year in mid-late June, I like to participate in the Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag.  It’s a bit of an institution here in the bookish community – I see it on bookstagram, booktube, and the book blogs alike.  It’s a great time to check in and see where I’m at, and to share some favorites with you. Every year, I try a choose a different blogger from the previous year to steal the tag from.  This year, I’ll be using the set of questions from Scorpio Book Dreams.  If you haven’t checked out Rachael’s blog […]

Basically Just Moving (Me, Not the Blog) – April Wrap Up

Basically Just Moving (Me, Not the Blog) – April Wrap Up

Such a quick update this month, loves.  Next month I aim to do better, but for now, I’m afraid I’m unpacking my whole life and as it turns out, I have way more STUFF than I need!  Moving isn’t usually such a haul for me – I haven’t lived in the same place for more than three years for… thirteen years now?  But because my work schedule/commute has me ragged and exhausted at the best of times, it’s been a real struggle to put everything together.  I know I’ve been talking about The Move for months now it seems, but this […]

Starworld by Audrey Coulthurst and Paula Garner

Starworld by Audrey Coulthurst and Paula Garner

Right off the bat, I’m in love with Starworld.  This unexpected novel pulls so many of my heartstrings. I am absolutely one of those humans who likes finding people in books I can relate to, and from page one, Sam Jones was my girl. Things I like about Sam: She hides in Art Class. She’s terrified of humans and still texts like the most amazing nerd ever. She hides in bathroom stalls for peace and quiet when the world is too much. If that were all there was to it, I’d be a fan of this book, because already I’m […]
