SUNDAY SHOUT OUTS! | 1

In 2020, I'm challenging myself to get more involved in the blogging community. I've decided that one way I can do this is to do some shout outs to posts I really enjoy or that make me think. Right now I'm aiming to do this every other Sunday or so. There are so many amazing …

Looking Back at 2019

Every year for the past few years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) I've made one of these posts, and each year I'm even more surprised by how much can be packed into just twelve months. 2019 was an... interesting year. The highs were amazing, and the lows were... well, not great. I had a blast during …

I first started blogging when I was in eighth grade. Back then I was fourteen years old and just wanted a space online where I could write book reviews. I had no idea a whole community of book bloggers existed, a little corner of the internet enthralled by discussing literature. I've since gone back and …

Why are books so aesthetically pleasing?

Today I'd like to discuss something that I've randomly been wondering a lot lately: Why are books so aesthetically pleasing? Why do I feel the need to photograph them so much? Why can I spend so much time scrolling through bookstagram feeds and gazing at all of the beautiful bookish photos? I don't have the answers to …

Reading Rush 2019 Wrap-Up

The Reading Rush has officially come and gone, and I had the best time! I've participated in the Booktubeathon (what it used to be called) several times before, but I have to say that this year has been my favorite yet. The website fostered a real sense of community and I was asked to host …
