You’re Not Good Enough Book Tag


Well, this tag sounds cheery! When I first saw the title, I was super confused as to what it was about, so here’s a little description to clear things up:

You pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down on pieces of paper. You then pluck two names at a time out to answer a question – so there are 15 questions. The aim of the game is to pick the character that fits the criteria the best and by doing so find the character that is not “good enough” for the answer.

I was tagged by the lovely Orangutan Librarian. Make sure to check out her blog and give her some love! ❤

Book Festivals – What I’ve Learned + Tips

When I went to my first book festival, there were a couple things I wished I knew before I went. I was really glad I had my friend with me because she knew what she was doing and I didn’t. I just followed her around. I didn’t even know about the panels at that festival. That’s how clueless I was.

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.

*celebratory dance*

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.
