ACOTAR Inner Circles’ Reactions to Books (told in gifs)

I always wondered what it would be like to have fictional characters come to life. That got me thinking, what would it be like if I became friends with them and took them to my favorite spot, which is of course any place with books. Then, I was wondering what they would do if they got a book in their hands.

I could describe what I’d think their actions would be, but I think .gifs do a better job.

I narrowed my pick of characters to those in ACOTAR because Feyre likes to read books, so at least one person will appreciate a sudden appearance of a book.

2018 Bookish (and Non-Bookish) Goals

The new year brings new resolutions, and that means it’s time for me to make new goals for myself. I don’t really like calling them resolutions because the definition sounds restrictive.

Just for reference, the definition I read of “resolution” on the internet was this:

a firm decision to do or not to do something

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like an ultimatum to me. It’s like I have to decide whether or not I want to proceed with a certain habit and it will be a life or death decision. In reality, it’s not that big of a deal, but it’s still rather important. That’s why I’m going to refer to my “resolutions” as “goals” instead. It sounds more achievable and more forgiving.

Day 868 – Happy New Year!

Folks, we finally made it! It is the New Year! Happy New Year everybody! I hope everyone is having a great first day of 2018!

2017 was an eventful year with its ups and downs, so I’m super glad that it’s finally 2018.

I hope everyone else had a wonderful 2017, and are will have an even better 2018!

My only New Year Resolution is to try new things, so I decided to make an Instagram book account! My username is @theawkwardbookblogger (wow, creative username, I know), if any of you guys want to check me out (I haven’t posted anything yet at the time I’m writing this post…). Just a warning: I’m not that great at photography, so my account will probably not be as artsy as a lot of other bookstagram-ers. In fact, I might not even consider my account to be a bookstagram, but more of a place that I talk/rant/fangirl about books. Only time will tell…

Here’s to another great year filled with reading, blogging, and community! (Can I get any cheesier? XD) Stay awesome, everyone!

December 2017 Wrap-Up | The Last Wrap Up of the Year!

Wow, what a year 2017 has been! It’s definitely had it’s ups and downs.

Reading-wise, December was an okay month. Thanks to the little break I have, I’ve had more time to catch up on my reading. However, I spent most of the time just sleeping (because who doesn’t like sleep?).

It’s weird to think that this is the last day of the year…

I hope everyone’s 2017 was fantastic and here’s to an even better year! ❤

Top 10 Books I Read in 2017

2017 is coming to an end… and thank goodness for that. It’s been a rough year, to say the least, but that didn’t stop me from reading some pretty freaking awesome books. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this year, but that just means I’m going to try extra hard in 2018 to get to all the books I want to read.

Top 10 Worst Characters to Invite Over During the Holidays

I know I’m a tad bit late with this post, but I’m going to post it anyway.

The holiday season is all about spending time with your family and loved ones. Family time is awesome, but sometimes they can get on your nerves. It’s like the sequel to Thanksgiving dinner. There’s always that one person you invite over that makes the dinner/party really awkward at one point or another. If you’ve never felt that feeling of awkward silence, then you’re a really lucky fellow.

People have that mental list of who not to invite over. Whether it be their weird ex or that one person. You know, that ONE person you refuse to invite after inviting them one year. Yes, that person.

That got me thinking, what if I invited over fictional characters from books? Who would be the worst guests? I comprised a list of my top 10 worst guests.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful time spending quality time with their family and loved ones. My older sister, who I haven’t seen in a while, finally came home and I’ve been able to spend some time and catch up with her. Thankfully with technology, I’ve been able to communicate with her, but it doesn’t feel the same as talking and spending time with her in person.
