The Liebster Award #2 // Answering Tough Questions

A few months ago, I did this exact award, but because it’s all about answering people’s questions and telling fun facts about yourself, I decided to do it again!!

This time, I was nominated by the lovely Shayna, who posts tons of great works of writing over on her blog Hail Angelic Creation.  If you enjoy reading poetry or short stories, you should totally go check her blog out!

My Tragic Fear of Libraries

okay.

I know.

It’s weird.

and probably not #relatable

but I’m terrified of the library.

Like, I won’t go alone and I’d rather not go at all.  I realize that makes me sound super privileged and awful, but there’s a good reason, so bare with me.

For The Love of Reading: A (BELATED AF) Broody Challenge

(originally, this post was supposed to be for the Broody book challenge #9, but I’m over a month late because of my hiatus… you should most definitely buy the book on Amazon or at least add it on Goodreads)

We all love reading (or at least, I assume, since you’re on my book blog) but it’s hard to pinpoint exactly why we love it so much.  For me at least, I’ve loved it for so long that it’s just been an inherent part of who I am.  That’s why I really wanted to take a look at this prompt and try to write something somewhat relevant and maybe even a little bit deep (lol NOPE) for this post.

Opinion: The Goodreads Choice Awards

Tis the holiday season… and that means AWARDS SEASON!!!

In the coming months, there will be soooo many big end of year blogger and book awards coming out for us to vote in, the biggest of which is open now: THE GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS!!

I personally love book awards and voting and stuff (not really sure why tbh) and so I decided to talk about how excited I was and also all of the things I think could be better about them…

At my time of writing this post, it’s the semifinal round (which is obviously closed soon) so I’ll just base all of my opinions off of that

My NaNoWriMo Plan // Suggestions for You

It’s November!!! The leaves are finally changing color, it’s getting COLD (which I didn’t think I would ever enjoy, but the warm October made me actually miss it), the holidays are almost upon us, and generally everything is amazing.  Plus– it means that it’s time for NaNoWriMo!!

For those of you that don’t know, NaNo is National Novel Writing Month.  Basically, it means that a whole bunch of people try to write an entire novel (50,000 words) over the course of a single month, with varying degrees of success and failure.  If you’re interested in joining or just want to learn more, click here (yes I casually directed you to my profile, add me as a friend while you’re at it) I tried to do NaNo last year and failed miserably, both because of a lack of time and because I hadn’t planned anything out in advance.  This year, I’m taking a very different approach to “novel” writing.

Review: One of Us Is Lying

By Karen M McManus

Rating: 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Goodreads Rating: 4.07

Genre: YA Mystery

Publication Date: May 30th 2017

Format Read: Audiobook

Goodreads Summary: Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.

Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.

Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.

And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

Recap: The Book Blogosphere in Review

As I mentioned in my summary/end of hiatus post a while back, I wanted to collect a bunch of really great blog posts from over this summer and compile them, both for myself to read and others.  While I was reading everyone’s posts, it occurred to me that I could make this a regular/seasonal feature, where at the end of every season I recap the best posts and general happenings from around the blogosphere!

All of the posts and info this time were suggested by other people on my summary post earlier this month since I took a pretty long hiatus.  After this, we’ll see whether it’ll be better for me to randomly find posts, or to take suggestions from you guys.  I’m not gonna do wrap up posts any more, because I only post once a week, so this will potentially replace that.
