So you may have noticed something new… yeah I’M SELF HOSTED NOW! So this is a brand new site and I’m still moving things over and updating links and social media and everything, but I think I’ve found my permanent home! I’m so excited to tidy and update all these graphics, but I wanted to get a little post out for you today. I wanted to do a New Year tag because I feel like I haven’t done many bookish things this year yet, so I thought this would be a lot of fun!
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! When you’re reading this I will be out of the country without WiFi until 2019! I can’t wait to tell you about all of my adventures when I get back! Today I’m doing the End of Year Book Tag which I found on Jenn’s blog Jenniely. (It was originally on Drizzle and Hurricane’s Books.)
I’ve wanted to do this post for a while and it’s been sitting in my backlogs. I figured blogmas was the perfect time to do this (if nothing else than I’m running out of Christmas themed ideas). And I thought it would be interesting to do this topic because most of the time I’m pretty neutral about it. I have some pros and cons to each format which I’ll outline and I lean towards one (that you will have to read to the end to find out), but most of the time it’s whatever works.
Coming off of my other blogmas posts about buying gifts for writers and bloggers I thought I should do one if you’re shopping for your favorite bookworm! So I dug back into the depths of the internet for some adorable gifts for your favorite reader!
A lot of us have holiday traditions, and as a reader and writer, I have a few book traditions, too. Some of these I’ve rediscovered recently, and some of them I read every year. Each one of these books means something significant to me during the holidays, either in the past or now, and I’m really excited to share them with you!
So Blue Bloods itself was a really interesting series de la Cruz has an interesting take on her vampire mythology by making them fallen angels and by the end of the series I was on the edge of my seat- a lot different reaction then my review to the pilot book. I felt the characters became more interesting and fleshed out, the story was completely saturated in extensive and detailed world building, and it was a vivid and actually great series to read.
Whenever I scroll through my Twitter or Pinterest I always get a lot of cute graphics about #BookwormProblems. (Now, I consider myself a Book Dragon, but that is completely beside the point.) Today I’m going to tell you some of my favorite (and relatable) #BookwormProblems.
This book was recommended to me by a good friend and I was initially really interested. I loved Melissa de la Cruz’s Disney Descendants books and I was really hopeful to like this series, too, because I LOVE vampires. I was really disappointed when it didn’t become my new favorite series.
I think Braswell did a wonderful job of keeping true to Belle’s character while also making her fit into the new story she created.
This YA Paranormal series pulled me in and didn’t let go. Hunter has a way of making me get just frustrated enough with the characters keeping their realness as teenagers, while also giving them incredible agency over the problems in their lives.
