Best, Worst, and Everything In Between-My 2017 Reads

2017 was a rough year for me reading wise. I struggled with book slumps and time management, but overall, I’m pretty happy with my reading last year. If you want to see everything I read last year you can check out my goodreads, but I thought it’s be fun to do a little award show of sorts and talk about the most memorable books from last year.

December Wrap Up and Survey!

Before we get to the part you’re probably waiting for (*cough*the survey I made to mark the new year and help me improve my blog*cough*), I thought I’d talk about what happened this December. I have family visiting and swim team to keep up with, but I think I made some steps in the right direction in December! I posted some cool things, read a lot of books, and had a lot of fun IRL. Let’s get into the details!

Books On My Christmas Wish List -Guest Post

This is a little late, but I hope it’s amazingness will be enough for an excuse/apology. Emily (for the bookish, one of my favorite blogs) sent me this like last week, but I dropped the ball and didn’t do anything with it. Sorry! I got so distracted by Christmas, books, presents, babies, season outfits, waiting for mail….. I could go on and on, but I’ll leave it at, “I forgot, oops.”. I’ve delayed you enough! Read on and enjoy this (slightly late) guest post! Thanks Emily (go check out her blog!!! Maybe we can encourage her to start blogging more again 😉 ).

Hey guys! I’m so excited to show you this post by the lovely Olivia.

She writes so many awesome posts so don’t hesitate to check out her blog. I’ve been reading it for years (definitely one of my favorite blogs).

Guide To Converting Your Non-Reader Friends

It’s the holiday season, and that means present shopping. But it can be so hard to shop for someone who doesn’t share the same interests as you, books. So instead of struggling and worrying, why don’t you just convert them to the bookworm life? Then you can shop for books, art prints, totes, phone cases, and everything else fandom related. But thats’s easier said then done. So I decided to give you a step by step guide to converting your non-bookish friends. Make this guide your own and have fun forcing your friends, family, and others to like books helping your friends and family.

Defeating book slumps pt. 2

About two weeks ago I posted a post about the different types of book slumps (here), but today I’m going to be sharing my tips and strategies for getting over slumps. It seems like slumps are becoming more and more well known, and I think that’s great! There are so many types of slumps (blogging slumps, reading slumps, writing slumps, and basically everything in between!) and it can be comforting to know that someone else gets you or went through the same things. That’s one of the reasons why I wanted to make this mini series! But sometimes you need more than comfort. You need good, solid tips on how others got out of their slumps and that’s what I hope to deliver today! These tips are designed and written about reading slumps, but I think they could be modified to help you move past any of your slumps (at least, I hope so). Here are my top five ways to get past reading slumps.
