My Reflections after a Year of Blogging (+ Giveaway)

My Reflections after a Year of Blogging (+ Giveaway)

Holy moly, me-oh-my. It’s been a year since I made my blog solely about books. One whole year. Three-hundred and sixty-five days. In actuality, it’s been more than that, but I wasn’t sure on the exact date. I just judged it off of my first TTT post which was a year from this past Tuesday. It’s hard to know because I was blogging long before that, but it wasn’t until February sometime last year that I became a “book blog.” I wanted to reflect on some things that I’ve learned since I started blogging, since, you know, I’m all wise and mature […]

I Have So Much to Be Grateful For

I Have So Much to Be Grateful For

This past Tuesday, the Top Ten Tuesday prompt was just a Thanksgiving Freebie. And I had every intention of writing a post about ten books that I’m grateful for. I even listed out seven of them during my Grammar class when I should’ve been paying attention. But then Monday night rolled around, and I was already lying in my bed when I remembered that I had yet to write the post. And I already hadn’t written a TTT since the 3rd, so why break my streak now? Just kidding, but no. I’m not kidding. Anyway, but I have so much more than just […]


Diabetes: Let’s Get Personal

Diabetes: Let’s Get Personal

Hello all you wonderful people. You might not know this, but it’s Diabetes Awareness Month. SO since I am in fact diabetic, I’m trying to help people become more aware of it. Over the course of the next few days, I’ll be posting some things about diabetes but hopefully they won’t just be sad or boring or awful…so read them. Ask me questions if you have them. Please! Comment if you have things to say. Here we go! I’m going to get very real with you here. Diabetes sucks. It’s the worst.  It has been the biggest trial of my life and […]


New Blog Design!

New Blog Design!

Guys, I finally got a new blog theme and design! I’ve been itching for a new one for a while. My old one was nice but it wasn’t customizable at all. I had just gotten a pre-made one on Etsy and it worked fine for my purposes for a while. But when I started specifically book blogging, I wanted something that I could easily manipulate if I wanted to. And the Tweak Me v.2 from Nosegraze was just screaming my name.   I’m trying to figure out where to put my tagline, but other than that the header is completed too! […]


Emily Owens, MD | How It Got Me Thinking

Emily Owens, MD | How It Got Me Thinking

Over the summer, my older sister started watching this show on Netflix called Emily Owens, MD. I had seen it on there, but I just remember thinking: “Ohhhh great. Another doctor show.” Because, let’s be real, there are a million and one doctor shows. But my sister loved it and since she’s like my best friend of all time, I decided to watch it too. And it was amazing and I loved it. Except the last episode. Because it got canceled after the first season and IT WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO END LIKE THAT. Okay, anyways.


Managing, Well, Life

Managing, Well, Life

The title of this post really says it all. Life is getting to me. I’m currently taking 14 credits of school. I work 17-20 hours a week. For my English class, I have to read at least 30 books this semester, not to mention the other homework I have. I’m taking an online astronomy class and dying because I realized I need a professor to lecture at me. I just got hired to freelance blog posts through October for the company I interned at over the summer. I feel like I have no time for anything anymore. I want a social […]
