Staying On Top of Your Reading During the Holiday Season-Guest Post

Hey guys! I’m so excited to show you this post by the lovely Olivia. We decided to swap Christmas themed posts, and I wrote a helpful guide for introverts on how to survive the holiday season (here) for her blog. 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).

I’m just going to stop rambling. Here’s the post!

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. img_0260Read More »

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.

Defeating Book Slumps pt. 1

img_1396As I mentioned in my last post, I got caught up in a horrible, long-lasting book slump last year. I was able to overcome it after about 6 months of pain, and I thought I’d make the process a little easier for others by talking about what helped me overcome my slump. But before I got into my tips for defeating a slump, I thought I’d give you a look at what slumps are like for me. Book slumps or slumps in general can look very different, but I singled out my top blank most common slumps.Read More »

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 »
