Hey friends! Like you see in the title, I've spontaneously decided to take a short break from the blog. I've been doing three posts a week without a break since January. JANUARY. That's The Before. I kept up my weekly schedule through lockdown, through adjusting to the online semester, through loneliness, through new interests, through … Continue reading [spontaneous hiatus announcement!]
I've been thinking a lot lately about what it even means to enjoy a book or not, and how there are a lot of factors that may influence your experience with a particular story in a positive or negative way. There are so many books I think about and wonder: would I have liked this … Continue reading Discussion: What affects your reading?
This is not an actual blog post but since a lot of you don't follow my twitter I thought I'd share this here. I had the pleasure of being featured on Ben's guest post series called "On A Case Bi Case Basis" that's all about people identifying as bi telling their stories and putting into … Continue reading Announcement: what does being bi means to me? // read my guest post on Ben’s blog!
First off, it goes without saying that this is not a post to hate on bookstagrammers, in fact, far from it! I love looking at beautiful pictures of books just as much as everyone else does. But I want to talk about my personal reasons for not being on it anymore, and I wouldn't do … Continue reading Why I Won’t Make a Bookstagram (Again)

The biggest change that I wish to make … Continue reading 2018 reading and blogging goals

I set my reading challenge to 100 books for this year, and I managed to read 120, which is my personal best. However, not all books were full length novels, and some were … Continue reading A look at 2017
READ Well, what a weird month reading-wise this has been for me! I think it's safe to say that I've been a little more relaxed with reading lately (in the past few months), but that was always because I was too busy. This month however, I totally feel like I was in a legit slump … Continue reading November Wrap-Up

This week’s topic: November 22nd: Books You're Thankful For --For whatever reason, big or small. In no particular order, and not only books because I couldn't … Continue reading #T5W: Books You’re Thankful For
Another month has gone by and I hardly noticed. Actually, that's not true, because I went on a road trip to the US (California-Arizona-Utah-Nevada-California) for two weeks and it felt like I stayed there for a month, but then I came back and realized I only got two weeks of regular life this month and … Continue reading October Wrap-Up
Hello! I'm just going to call myself out and proclaim it a miracle that I actually remembered to do a monthly wrap up on the actual last day of the month, yay! So here's what I read this month: That really isn't much (don't mind the two 3x in the short stories, those are just … Continue reading September Wrap-Up
