Re-reading: The Push and Pull of Us – A dramatic tale… because why not

I just realized that this title is oddly poetic and kind of has a sad feel to it…BUT THIS IS NOT A SAD POST DEAR FRIENDS. JUST MY COMPLICATED RELATIONSHIP WITH RE-READING. Continue reading “Re-reading: The Push and Pull of Us – A dramatic tale… because why not”

Might I Recommend… Books for Asexual Awareness Week?

Last Rec

Asexual Awareness Week 2018 is October 21nd-27th! Asexual Awareness Week is an international campaign that seeks to educate about asexual, aromantic, demisexual, and grey-asexual experiences and to create materials that are accessible to our community and our allies around the world.

We out here! I’ve been planning this post for months yes I’m dramatic but of course this would be a bit important to me… Now I know I’m a day early, but ¯\_()_/¯

Now, a disclaimer: though I do recommend these books, there is no one true interpretation. One book may be interpreted so many different ways. These are just the books that I feel are important.

Evolving as a Blogger

I was supposed to hit you with a review today, but I was in so much pain yesterday that I couldn’t even read, so… can we just chat for a minute? I’ve done one of these before, but more on a personal level and not on a blogging level, but I thought it’d be nice to reflect and cringe a little bit.

So, as you know, I’ve been blogging for a little over a year not and it’s WILD. And over this past year, I have changed some things. A lot.  Continue reading “Evolving as a Blogger”

Tropes That Can Burn Their Tongues on Hot Oatmeal

Babble

As of late, I’ve been reading a lot of tropey books, but that’s not what made me think of this post.

And I started thinking: tropes are a thing… am I okay with them? I mean, the answer is no, some tropes irk my soul and I’m going to dish them out. I did make a T5W on this, but there are many more that should be addressed. Continue reading “Tropes That Can Burn Their Tongues on Hot Oatmeal”

The Flying Paperback Guide to Reading

… still not sure about that title, but we’re still going with it. Despite the obtuse nature of the title, I’m not going to be talking about how to read. No, you see, I noticed when I post my monthly wrap ups, I get comments pointing out how much I read in a month. And when I’m putting together said post, I’m usually surprised myself. So here I am today, self reflecting on the possible reasons I read as many books as I do a month.

The Confession Chronicles || Are Netgalley and Edelweiss Limiting Me? {#3.2}

Past chronicle

Before we start, a disclaimer: I understand these websites make it somewhat easier for international readers to receive ARC’s (check out Book Allure and The Book Corps post for two sides of this argument), so this post is specifically referencing me and my experiences/feelings.

Now, back to the post…. Continue reading “The Confession Chronicles || Are Netgalley and Edelweiss Limiting Me? {#3.2}”

I’ve Been Eighteen For About A Week

me

As you all know, I’ve just recently turned 18 and… already I’m doing things differently… Nothing too drastic, but it’s taken me aback because again, it’s been a week. Girl, chill.

But no one told me how scary this would be. I’ve been going to school for 12 years and now you want to change the routine? I’m a bit lost now on what to do with my days… and in general.

But this is a light post, so I won’t get too sappy on you.
