Favorite Quotes of “Living in a World of Book Quotes”: Guest Post

Today’s the last post for the Summer Blog Promo Tour! And I’m hosting Living in a World of Book Quotes.

It’s learning how to control your fear and to be free from it.” —Divergent by Veronica Roth “You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have some say in who hurts you.” —The Fault in Our Stars by John Green “Everything’s a risk.

Bookish Twitter: #BookOlympics

Bookish Twitter is the best kind of Twitter. We’re awesome, opinionated, and passionate. And witty and clever. Which all combines when the community comes up with great trending hashtags. When paired with the Olympics, we’re unstoppable. I noticed today that #BookOlympics started trending, and I had to jump on board and showcase some of my favorites!   The Vault in Our Stars #BookOlympics pic.twitter.com/7D7G6MFI8p — Chronicle Books (@ChronicleBooks) August 10, 2016 Lord of the Fly#BookOlympics #Rio2016 pic.twitter.com/d6b1RXjkMa — Trina’sTerseTales (@TeenTerseTales) August 10, 2016 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Badminton Day #BookOlympics — Stephanie Lucianovic (@grubreport) August 10, 2016 […]

Top Ten Books I Loved But Never Reviewed

Top Ten Books I Loved But Never Reviewed

Today’s prompt for Top Ten Tuesday is Rewind! Or basically we can do any prompt from the past that we missed or want to do again…which is fun and gives me too many a lot of things to choose from. But I decided to go with Books that I loved, but that I didn’t review. And I’m sticking with books that I’ve read since book blogging (since any book from before was never reviewed). Because sometimes I finish a book, and I just don’t want to write a review. It happens, okay? But I’m going to give them some love here. So let’s […]

On My Nightstand in August 2016

On My Nightstand in August 2016

I’ve officially deemed this month “Read ALL the books before school starts on August 29 and I die because I have no time for personal reading anymore” month. To keep it short, I’ll just call it RATBBSSOA29AIDBIHNTFPRA month. Lol, I just tried to say that out loud. I’m just joking. I mean, I hope I’ll be able to read all the books that I have sitting on my TBR because there are so many books, but it’ll probably just be a normal reading month for me…So let’s start, shall we?      I’ve been working on The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken for a few weeks now.

Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do Or Learn

Ten Things Books Have Made Me Want To Do Or Learn

One of the best things about books and words in my opinion is their power to evoke real feelings and to move people to real action. These words—literally just ink on a page—can make someone laugh, cry, smile, frown, remember, and hope. Words can do everything from inspiring revolutions to bringing warmth to a young girl’s heart. They’re powerful. That’s why I love today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt: Ten Things Books Have Made You Want to Do After Reading. So let’s get started, shall we? Learn Portuguese The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace The Storyspinner has Portuguese elements and phrases strewn throughout its […]
