Catching up…

Why hello there!

Characteristically of a college senior, I was sucked into the depths of Work, Work, and Work during senior spring and had zero time to blog. But now I am on the other side! Free! I feel like Dobby with a sock! It’s wild!

Yesterday I passed my honors thesis defense, which means I’m now done with work (until law school starts in the fall, at least…). This means I now have more time to blog again! I have missed this blog dearly in the five months we’ve been parted, and I’m excited to finally get back into it. I have a lot of ideas for what I’d like to do with this blog that I’ve had on the back burner for a while–but there’s no better time to start like the present!

For now, I’d like two things from all of you:

  • What would you be interesting in learning more about on this blog?Β From graduating college as an English major and studying abroad in Oxford, England to writing an honors thesis and preparing to enter law school, there are many topics that I’d love to talk about. Which ones would interest you the most?
  • What sorts of books do you read?Β This question is more to satisfy my personal curiosity than anything else–I’ve always wondered what sorts of books the people who read this blog mostly enjoy. Favorite genres? Favorite authors? Favorite time periods? The more bookish info the merrier!

Thanks to those of you who have stuck around through this five month break! Hope you’re all doing well ❀

  1. Would love to hear more about your honors thesis! Congrats on your success.
    I read mostly sci-fi/fantasy, often YA. But I like many genres and enjoy expanding my horizons πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! I’ll definitely share more about my honors thesis this summer (once I’m out of the thick of it a bit more haha). Ooh nice! I love some good sci-fi/fantasy!

  2. Yay welcome back! Interested in law school conversations and more book recommendations! I read mostly sci-fi/fantasy (mostly sci-fi) but if I remember correctly it’s not your favourite genre. Anyway there you go. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks!! Will definitely be talking more about law school in the future, especially as I start in the fall! And nice–I used to read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi when I was younger, but I tend to do it less often nowadays (except for LOTR–always in the mood for LOTR). I should get back into it! πŸ™‚


  3. I’m glad to see you are back!!! I’ve missed your posts! Blog wise, I already love the content you had previously, so I don’t have anything to add but I would welcome any new topic you’d like to tackle! I’m already done school, but maybe you could talk about your experiences for others who haven’t gone yet? I’m actually thinking I might do some of that myself with my English and Library Studies experiences.

    Book wise, I read any genre — I’m a mood reader πŸ™‚

    Lots of love! ❀

    1. Thanks so much, Jenna–I’m so glad to be back! ❀ Oooh I would love to read about your English and Library Studies experiences, so definitely do! And I can totally relate to being a mood reader–it's a tricky beast! Hope you have a lovely day πŸ™‚

  4. I loved when you wrote about studying abroad! I’m sure there would be an audience for more!

    I read mostly MG, YA, classics, and fantasy. I particularly like Victorian novels and English Renaissance drama.

  5. I loved reading about your study abroad experience at Oxford! I suppose a little bit about thesis-ing would be useful.
    I’ve been on an upper YA queer contemporary kick. I loved Radio Silence recently.

      1. oooh I’ve never read that one, but I’ve heard great things! I’m probably going to have to go with one I read about Frederick Douglass by William McFeely. I think Douglass’ life is just so fascinating!


  6. Welcome baaaaaaaaaack Holly it’s SO good to hear from you!! ❀ ❀ Congratulations on passing your thesis defense, yay!!! ❀
    I absolutely loved reading your posts about studying abroad and your travel posts so I'd love to see more of that for sure! ❀
    And, to answer your second question, I mostly read young adult books and my favorite genre is contemporary, though I do like fantasy a lot as well. As for authors, I have way too many, off the top of my mind right now I could mention John Green, Alice Oseman, Austin Siegemund-Broka and Emily Wibberley… πŸ™‚

    1. Ahhhhh Marie!!!! Thank you so much!! I missed the blogging world, it feels so good to be back ❀ I'll take any excuse to talk more about studying abroad, so that can absolutely be arranged πŸ™‚ I've yet to read anything by Alice Oseman, but I've heard fantastic things… I'll have to add her to my list! Hope you have a lovely day xx

  7. Welcome back, Holly!!! Definitely would love to see all college-related posts! And law school?? That’s great! Congratulations! With all honesty, the years at law school were my favorite. I loved studying, solving cases, applying the law to some “real” situations, and reading chunky books. The courtroom simulations were also fun! (nerve-wracking, but fun πŸ˜€ )

    1. Thanks so much!! And that’s such a relief to hear… usually when people hear I’m going to law school they give me a look like “you’re about to enter hell,” so a positive review is a nice change!! πŸ™‚

  8. Welcome back, Holly! It’s so nice to hear from you again! Congrats on finishing your senior year! I love everything you already post on your blog, but would especially like to see more about your studying abroad experiences! ❀️

    I primarily read YA fiction and classics. My favorite from the former is fantasy and quiet contemporary. πŸ’•

  9. Welcome back, Holly! I’d love to hear more about how you decided to go to law school, what kind of law you want to study, and what you want to do with your degree.

    I mostly read adult SFF and diverse YA and middle grade contemporaries.

  10. Wahoo!! Congrats! I’d be willing to read whatever you want to post! I always think it’s really interesting to learn more about the more personal side of my favorite bloggers ❀

    As for what I read, I've been on a horror/thriller/mystery kick lately, but I'm trying to make sure to switch it up a bit more πŸ™‚

    Have a wonderful weekend!
