I’m bored. Let’s play a game with the Throne of Glass characters.
What game will that be, you ask?
The only game I can think of at the moment: Kiss, Marry, Kill!
For those who don’t know what this game is, it’s basically where you choose three people (in my case, characters) each round to kiss, marry, and kill. Fairly simple. To amp up the stakes, I put names of Throne of Glass characters in a jar and drew three for each round. Whichever three I choose are the ones I have to use.
I was tagged by the very lovely Audrey @ Audrey Writes Abroad. Don’t forget to check out her blog! You won’t regret it 🙂

I’ve probably told this story a million times already, so I’m going to keep this super short. The TL;DR version of how I started my blog is that I was bothering my older sister (as siblings do) and she told me to start a blog to help with my boredom and I did. The end.
1. Don’t worry about the numbers.
Don’t stress too much about the statistics (followers, likes, views, etc.). In the long run, they don’t really matter. Blogging is miserable if you only think about the numbers and are only posting to get a lot of followers. As long as you are doing what you love, the numbers don’t matter.
2. Have fun!
Blogging is a casual thing. No need to stress about it too much! Just have fun 🙂
All of you lovely people! Yes, you too!
I want to hear about your story and advice! 😀
Until next time….
To be completely honest, I totally forgot to do a monthly wrap up and now I’m quickly trying to type this out before it get’s too late. I blame it on the schoolwork. The amount of homework my teachers have given me this weekend is so overwhelming, so I’ve been doing nothing but working these past couple days.
Hopefully next week will be better, but we’ll see about that.
Homework aside, I think I had an okay blogging month. I didn’t do anything super drastic but I wasn’t able to read any books. Actually, I was able to read during September but I haven’t finished anything that I’ve started.

I saw a post recently by Epic Reads of a whole bunch of TL;DR summaries for YA books. I thought it would be a fun idea to make a challenge to do a whole bunch of one-liner summaries. Except for this post, I wanted to do something a little bit different. Not only do I have to summarize the book in one sentence, I also have to poke fun at it. Think of it as a one-liner roast.
For this challenge, I decided to do YA fantasy books because it’s my favorite genre.
(Disclaimer: I love all of these books and don’t mean any harm towards the stories, the authors, and their fans. This is just for fits and giggles.)
1. Accept and thank your challenger(s) by linking back to their post.
2. Make a post of one-sentence summaries and/or roasts of at least five books.
3. No spoilers!
4. Link back to The Awkward Book Blogger so she can see your post.
5. Challenge as many or as little people as you want!
6. Have fun!
I love books. I love discounts and deals. I find it fun to search for a good deal on a certain book I either need or want. Most of the time, that means I have to do my searching online because it’s hard to find books at a discounted price without having to drive more than half an hour.
That’s why I decided to compile all the online stores that sells books in case someone else is also looking for great places to buy books at a more discounted price. (Just a disclaimer, but I’m not sponsored by anyone to write this. I just really wanted to compile a list of websites where I get most of my discounted books.)
I’m still feeling a bit under the weather but I’m getting better every day. Thank you, everyone, for all the warm wishes! ❤
Since my brain is a bit fuzzy, I decided to go easy on myself this week with posting and just do something simple.
I was nominated by the lovely Marta @ The Book Mermaid. She reviews both books and movies, and her posts always make me smile. Don’t forget to check out her blog and sorry I didn’t get to this sooner!
Before we start, here are the rules:
- Thank the person(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or on your blog.
I’ve got to get back to work so this is going to be pretty quick.
This school year has so far been a rough one. From what everyone has told me, this is going to be the toughest year for me, and I see why they said that. My workload has doubled since last year and the classes were much harder than I anticipated. I have many tests to study for this weekend and was already assigned a year-long project.
Because of the overload of homework I receive on a daily basis, my stress levels have been rising as my free time slowly diminished. On top of that, I got sick today. Flu season is running through my school and sadly I was not spared. Let’s just hope I get out of this mess alive and get my life together.
That being said, I may or may not be posting next week. If my schedule is overwhelmed, then I probably won’t be posting next week. If I can manage to find some leeway, then I’ll try and at least write one post. Since school started, I haven’t even been able to touch a book that isn’t a textbook, so we’ll see how likely it is for me to have time to write.
Anyway, I hope you are having a lovely, stress-less week! Treat yourself to some rest because it’s Friday! Or some Disney music… you can never go wrong with Disney music.
Until next time….
