Hey! Welcome to my last review of the year, Breadcrumbs, a retelling of the Snow Queen that I read for the December book of The Second Star Society! This story really touched my heart, and I can't wait to share it with you guys. 😊

Hey guys! For my final Bookending Winter post, (I was going to do 12 posts, for the 12 days of Christmas, but one of the things I was going to do for a post didn't work out, so now it's 11. 😂) I'm doing the Hopeful New Years prompt by Amy @ The Little Book Nerds in the Corner, where we list the books we would like to finish before the clock strikes midnight on the 31st! And for me, this is definitely hopeful, because as of this post, I still have to finish like 5 books I'm only a quarter way through of, and 3 of them are practically 500+ pages. 😬 What have I gotten myself into? Especially since 2018 has been the year of The Great Reading Slump. 😂 I really hope next year will be better...

Hey book nerds! Today I am doing the prompt provided by Sam @ Fictionally Sam, The Grinch Who Stole Books! The idea is that we list books we wish we could steal, like pretty books, rare editions, collectors' editions, or even a story idea from an author! I am SO excited about this prompt cuz I know it'll be so fun, and I have a bunch of collectors' editions in mind that have been on my wish list for a while, so let's go! 😄

Merry almost Christmas guys! I can't believe it's only in a few days! (Which means I'm turning 21 in only a couple weeks! 😱) But for BW #8, I decided to try and write my own bookish version of The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore! It's definitely not perfect, but I tried to weave in as many well-known fandoms of books I've actually read as I could, and I think it actually turned out pretty cute! So, without further ado...

Hi book nerds! Today's prompt is provided by the amazing Camilla @ The Reader in the Attic, who hails from Italy! Her prompt is all about a bookish version of the Christmas Cenone, or Christmas Dinner. 😉 Basically what you do is pretend you are throwing a Christmas dinner party and invite characters from the last three books you read! This sounds like so much fun, so let's go!

Today's prompt is provided by Imogen @ Imogen's Typewriter, and for it we will be taking a look at our TBRs that we want to get to around Christmas!
Since I kind of already talked about it in my November Wrap Up, I thought I would just use this as a chance to update you on my progress for Amy's Christmas Readathon, since the TBR is the same anyway. 😊

So today for Bookending Winter #1, I am giving you a tour of my Christmas-decorated bedroom! 😄

Hi guys!!! I'm back from my mini sporadic hiatus with my review of The Second Star Society's November book of the month, The Shadow Queen! I think this has been my favorite retelling that I've read all year, and I'm so excited to talk about it, so let's go! 😄🍎

Hey guys! I'm back with a Top Ten Tuesday link up with That Artsy Reader Girl, and this prompt was really fun because I got to raid all of my wish lists from around the internet and find a bunch of cool bookish merch I'd love to have one day and share them with you! 😄

Hey guys! I'm sorry this post was a little late again. I know I really need to get better at posting on time, but I think I've been a little burned out from Blogoween. 😅 Does anyone else think October somehow flew by and dragged along at the same time? How does this keep happening???
Oct 31, 2018
Hey guys! It's the very last day of Blogoween! 😩 Are you guys sad to see it go? It's been fun linking up and sharing these fun posts all month, but I think I'm ready for a break, though I'm still in denial that fall apparently is over for me. It really feels more like Christmas Eve outside with all of the snow we got! 😂 But I'm excited to move on and work on some other projects I have going on for the last couple months of the year.
Hey guys! Here is my review for Splintered! I'm sorry this is going up a little late, I'm writing it at 11 at night. 😂 I just have been really stressed and unmotivated lately and it took me forever to finish this book. A couple of days ago we suddenly got a bunch of snow dumped on us and for some reason my mental health kind of plummeted with it. Oh well, here's my thoughts on my first Alice in Wonderland Retelling! 😉

Hello Book Bloggians! Today I am doing an original prompt that I had an idea for; comparing book characters to Halloween candy! This was really fun to put together so I hope you guys like it! 😄

Hey guys! Today I am linking up again with Anna @ The Bursting Bookshelf again for her prompt, Top 5 Bookish Costumes! I didn't want it to be too similar to Jamsu's post that I did before, so instead of listing costumes I would actually want to wear, I just scrolled through Pinterest and picked some really cute and creative book-related costumes that I liked and decided to rank them! So without further ado, here is my top 5! 😄

Hey guys! Today for Blogoween #10, (OMG after this post I have only 3 left?! 😱 Where is this month going?! But actually I'm kind of excited for it to be over cuz then I can start working on Nanowrimo and planning for Blogmas! 😍) I am using the prompt provided by Sam @ Fictionally Sam, The Sacrifice, where we list characters we think would die first in a horror movie! I laughed when I saw I this post and knew instantly that I wanted to do it cuz boy...do I have a couple characters in mind...this is going to be fun. 😏

Hey guys! This tag was created by Sam Kasse, and last year I found it on Kat's blog Life and Other Disasters but didn't have time to do it. So I saved it on my list of post ideas and thought it'd be perfect this year for Blogoween! I'm excited to finally do it so let's go!

Helloooo fellow book nerds! (Or for this post specifically, movie nerds!) Today with Anna @ The Bursting Bookshelf (I love her blog's name!) we are talking about our top five favorite Halloween movies that aren't scary! And since I am definitely not into horror, for me that means....you guessed it...Disney of course! 😄
Hey fellow book bloggers! Today I'm back with Blogoween #7! This is my own prompt that I came up with of making a fall themed bookmark, and it took me forever so I'm sorry this post is so late. But It was so worth the time and effort because I am pretty proud of myself for how it turned out and can't wait to show you guys how I did it! 😊

Hello Book Bloggians! Welcome to Blogoween #5! Today I am linking up with Kaleena @ Reader Voracious with her prompt, An Evening of Mystery and Murder, inspired by the board game and movie, Clue!

Hey guys! Welcome to my long awaited (well for me at least 😂) room tour! Ever since we rearranged our rooms in the house and I finally had my own room again I couldn't wait to finish decorating it to show it off for you guys! There's still a few projects I want to do for it and stuff I want to add, but for the most part it's ready.
So without further ado, here is my bedroom! 😄

Hey guys! I'm back with another review! I know, I realized I've done a lot of reviews recently, but this is the last one for a while. I promise! 😂 But this month I read Scarlet for my Robin Hood retelling for The Second Star Society, so read on to hear my thoughts!

What's up, book nerds!? This past Friday, September 14, marked the 10th anniversary of the publication of The Hunger Games! 😱 I CAN'T BELIEVE it's that old! It really doesn't feel that old to me, but that's probably I didn't read it until about 2011, when I was 13, so I guess it wasn't quite that long ago for me. But I guess that's still pretty long ago. I feel so old! I keep forgetting I'm not a teenager anymore! 😩
