 Breadcrumbs

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. 😊

Bookending Winter #11: Hopeful New Years

 
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...

Bookending Winter #9: The Grinch Who Stole...Books?

 



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! 😄

Bookending Winter #8: The Bookish Night Before Christmas

 


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...

Bookending Winter #7: The Bookish Cenone

 


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!

Bookending Winter #5 Holiday Season TBR/Christmas Readathon Update!

 


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. 😊

Bookending Winter #3: Putting Together My Bookish Secret Santa Box!

 


Hi Book Bloggians! 😄 This year I decided to join The Broke and The Bookish's 9th Annual Secret Santa, an online Secret Santa where we fill out a form and are paired up with someone we've never met and get to go shopping for them to send them books and all kinds of fun gifts based on their preferences! This has been SO FUN, so today for my third BW post, I'm showing you my box I put together for my secret santee! (Santee? Is that even a word? 😂)

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???

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.

Splintered by A.G. Howard Review (S.S.S. October Book)

 
 Splintered (Splintered, #1)

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! 😉

Blogoween #11: Top 5 Bookish Costumes

 

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! 😄

The Hunger Games Districts Tag (It was published 10 years ago?! Now I feel old! )


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! 😩
