Nanowrimo has officially begun, and I just wanted to share some quick writerly words of encouragement. Nanowrimo is such a wonderful time of the year, but I also know that it can create a lot of pressure. Don't worry if you miss a few days or even a week. As long as you end up with more… Continue reading Thursday’s Thoughts: Writerly Encouragement
October wasn't the greatest reading month for me, which I suppose I expected. I'm still really happy with what I managed to accomplish, and I did finish my Goodreads goal!! That's right, I've finished my goal of reading 75 books this year. The two books that I NEED to read before the year is… Continue reading October Wrap-Up

Photo Credit: Goodreads I was able to read an arc of Love, Hate, and Other Filters in exchange for an honest review via Edelweiss+. I don't know if many of you all know, but if you don't, Love, Hate, and Other Filters is one of my most anticipated 2018 releases. So when I saw a… Continue reading ARC Review: LOVE, HATE, AND OTHER FILTERS by Samira Ahmed
Hello everyone, I'm back with another Thursday's Thoughts. Today, I wanted to have a discussion and share our favorite auto-buy authors. Or in my case, auto-read, since I don't often buy books. But what authors have reached that status that when they release a book you know you're going to read it, and why have… Continue reading Thursday’s Thoughts: Auto-buy Authors

Nyxia is an awesomely diverse YA sci-fi that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I wanted to share my thoughts about it with you all. It's a book that I don't think a lot of people have… Continue reading ARC Review: NYXIA by Scott Reintgen
Picture Credit Yesterday was my 17th birthday, so I thought it'd be cool to do one of those '16 Things I Learned At 16' posts. Some of these may be cheesy, but I'm the (belated) birthday girl, so just roll with it. It's never too late to jump in. I've wanted to start… Continue reading It’s my Birthday!!
Photo Credit: Goodreads It's been a while since I've read anything outside of YA contemporary (I read Flame in the Mist during summer vacation *sighs wistfully*), so I was super excited to read another genre. From the moment I found out that this was inspired by Mulan (it's not a direct Mulan retelling, which I originally heard!), I… Continue reading Book Review: FLAME AND THE MIST by Renée Ahdieh
Hello everyone, today's Thursday's Thoughts is about Mood Readers versus Scheduled Readers? What category do you fall into? Why? Do you fall under both? Neither? Are you a mood reader but wish you were a scheduled reader, or vise-versa? I was thinking about this topic mostly because of school reading, and how I'm balancing… Continue reading Thursday’s Thoughts: Mood Readers Versus Scheduled Readers
Fall is upon us! Fall is my favorite season. Something about sweaters, boots, falling leaves, and pumpkin spice just always lifts my mood. So I thought it would be fitting to share five of my favorite fall books, and why they're perfect for this new season. Six of Crows seems like… Continue reading Favorite Fall Books
