Stages of Buying a Book

In the recent months I’ve been spending a lot of books (what’s new). Because I haven’t been reading at the rate that I’m buying books, I’ve accumulated quite the selection of unread books.

Because of that, I’ve decided to go on a sort-of book buying ban where I will only allow myself to buy one book for every three that I read. Not only will that limit the amount of books I buy but also will motivate me to get through my TBR a bit faster.

In the meantime, I’m getting my book buying fix by living vicariously through other people and seeing their book hauls.

Anyhow, while fantasizing going to a bookstore, I decided to compile the stages I go through before buying a book.

June 2018 TBR

Summer has officially started for me, and since I’m so behind on my reading schedule, I decided to make a little TBR to encourage myself to get backing into reading.

(me desperately trying to catch up to my ever-growing TBR)

Plus, I have so many books I need to catch up on that I need to force myself to start reading them or I will forever be behind.

Milestone Q&A!

A QUICK APOLOGY:

I’m so sorry for dropping off the face of this earth for about a month!

Image result for sorry gif

I’ve been super sick and super busy, which reduced my body and brain into mush. Now I’m much better and finished most of the things I need to get done. I just have a couple more tests this week and I’ll be free for a while. That being said…

THANK YOU FOR BEING SUPER PATIENT WITH ME!

A month ago (yeah… sorry about that), I had a post asking people to ask me questions. Basically, I wanted to do a Q&A in celebration of hitting 1000 followers on this blog.

Let’s get going!

Day 1001 – Being sick is my new norm

Hi peeps! A recent trend you might have been seeing with my health is that I am sick a lot. I was never really sick often up until last year where I was sick more days than I was not.

That being said, I am sick. Again.

I planned out a couple posts I wanted to write for this week but I don’t think I’ll have enough energy to actually write them. I think the large amount of stress I’m under currently is contributing to my waning health. I’m in the midst of two weeks of important testing, and I haven’t been getting my normal amount of sleep for the past month.

I will return once I’m feeling more like myself (hopefully sometime next week).

Until next time….

1000+ Followers – Ask Me Questions!

Alright. Okay. What? Okay. No, I’m not freaking out. You are.

Okay, I’m definitely freaking out. About a month ago I hit the 1000 followers milestone.

To be honest, when I first started I never thought I’d get any followers, let alone 1000. It’s freaky to think that 1000 actual people are genuinely interested in this blog. I know this is super cheesy, but thank you for your support! Yes, you! You don’t even need to be a follower. Someone taking the time out of their day to read my posts alone is enough, and I can’t thank you enough for letting me be able to talk about my passion! ❤

It seems like a good time to do a Q&A, and I can’t have that without some questions so I would love for you to ask me as many as you want in the comments (bookish or non-bookish, I’m not picky). I’ll make another post with my answers (hopefully) sometime next week.

Once again, thank you so much for everyone’s support!

Until next time….

Day 980 – Waking Up Earlier than Normal for NTTBF

If you have looked at my Instagram in the past 24 hours, you would’ve saw me posting a whole bunch of photos and videos of the North Texas Teen Book Festival on my Instagram story. I even posted a couple pictures of the authors I got to meet and the people that were there.

Other than that, I didn’t take too many pictures, which I now regret. Here are the few that I did take while I was there (and a play by play as to how my day went). Just a warning, this post is a bit longer than what I normally post.

Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.

(This synopsis is from Goodreads.)

Zodiac Signs Book Tag

Hi peeps! Long time no see! It’s been around two (?) weeks since I last posted something but now I’m back! I no longer have exams (until May) so I’ll have a bit more time to blog!

And because I just got out of taking a whole bunch of exams I decided to start with something easy, which is a book tag.

I was tagged by the lovely Nimika @ Word Haven. Make sure to check out her blog filled with bookish posts and writing! Sorry I took so long to get to this….

The Rules:

zodiac.png1. Make a post of your own in which you share a book you believe matches with each zodiac sign, explaining why.
2. Copy the rules in your post.
3. Tag 5 to 10 bloggers to do the same at their turn. (Or more, who am I to stop you!)
4. Link the creator of the post, audreywritesabroad, in your post so she can see your answers! 🙂
5. You can use the header image I made if you want to. If you don’t like it and want to make one of your own, go ahead!
6. Have fun!
