Top Three Books I Read This Summer

This summer I, finally, defeated my reading slump. I’m not talking about some one month or even two month reading slump. I was stuck in this rut for over six months! I didn’t have any motivation to do anything reading wise. I couldn’t read books I’d spent months waiting for, I didn’t want to write anything, and I barely got through my school books. But then, as I was finishing up school for the summer, I found the motivation and dove right back into things. I read over thirty books this summer! That may not sound like a lot, but I was on vacation for all of June and a large portion of July, so I’m really proud of the fact I managed to find my stride again. So today I thought I’d share with you a few of the best books I read this summer.Read More »

Bookshelf Tour

Since I haven’t shown my bookshelves to you guys I thought I would do a little bookshelf tour today and a bookshelf tag later on in the week. That way you can get an in depth look at my favorite things (my bookshelves and the books in them). I have multiple bookshelves, and all of them are different. I started out with just one, but my book collection just kept on growing so I had to be creative and find unique shelves that work with my room size. Now onto the first shelf!!Read More »

October Recap

img_1329

I didn’t do the best reading wise and blogging wise this month. And I do have a good excuse, but in a way it was because I simply didn’t feel like it. But I’ll give the excuse anyways.  Life happened. For the last few months all I really did was read and do school, but I actually started doing stuff in October. I joined a Girl Scouts troop, joined swim team, continued going to youth group, did some other things, and just generally started trying more. So whenever I wasn’t doing something (which was admittedly, quite often) I just wanted to chill and fall into some youtube blackholes. But I’m going to try to be much better this month. Since I’m not doing NaNoWriMo I have a lot of time to kill, and hopefully seeing all of these other bloggers being productive will inspire me to keep on writing posts and reading.Read More »

YA Books without Romance

Romance can get tiring. Especially now that a majority of Young Adult novels have romance in them. I love my ships and otp’s, but I like to read books with no romance as well since I’m not a very romantic person. After seeing so many of the same romantic plot lines, I go a little crazy. So to avoid going crazy from all of the romance I try to change it up and read a few books with no romance, but it can be hard to find good books that are YA and contain no romance. So I thought I’d compile a list of YA books that I’ve read that contain little to no romance. Enjoy!Read More »

Top Ten Tuesday-Books I’ve read because of Another Blogger

I love giving and getting recommendations. Who doesn’t?It’s awesome when someone takes the time to learn your tastes and thinks of you when they read/watch/do something that is similar to those preferences. So whenever someone tells-*cough*demands*cough*-me to read something, I always try to read it…..eventually. I’ll admit, sometimes I am pretty skeptical, but I still give it a whirl. So when I saw this topic I knew I had to participate. Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish So here are a few recommendations that I have received and enjoyed. (also this is a sneaky way for me to recommend these books to you. Go read them!)Read More »
