This review has no spoilers.
When I was younger, I used to be a physical book purist. I would only read physical copies of books. Granted, at the time e-books weren’t really a thing. With advancing technologies, books are started to move towards technology, from e-books, e-readers, and audiobooks.
I used to think that audiobooks were for those who weren’t serious about reading (how can you get the full experience without turning the pages of a physical copy and having the satisfaction of closing the book once you’re done?), but I’ve come to really appreciate them over the years. Nowadays, although I still prefer reading, I listen to a good number of audiobooks every year.
Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! Today and tomorrow I will be spending my time with my family and friends that I don’t get to see very often anymore, so this post has been written before hand and scheduled. I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday right now filled with cheer and good memories.
Anywho, while I was brainstorming what to post for the holidays, Norees over at No Reads too Great saved the day by tagging me in another tag! I can’t seem to find who created this tag, so if anyone knows, please holler in the comments so I can tag them!
Enough with that. Let’s get to the fun stuff!
Happy holidays, my people! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve written a post for this blog. University has been kicking my butt, but I’m finally finished with finals! I’m with my family, and I’ve had a couple days to recuperate from all the testing and information grinding. Now I’m back!
I’ve been brainstorming for the past couple days what kinds of posts I should write when Norees from No Reads So Great saved my brain from thinking too hard and tagged me in this fun holiday book tag! I haven’t really been in the holiday spirit with all the testing that’s been going on, but now that I’m done I’m ready to dive in!
I don’t have any holiday drinks laying around in the house (my family and I aren’t really huge holiday drink drinkers) and it’s too cold outside to go out and get some so I’m just going to stick with my water as I write this post.
Hello, earthlings! This month has been pretty up and down, so I’m ready for something easy and structured like a book tag! I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I saw The Orangutan Librarian do this book tag ,and it looked fun, so I wanted to try my hand at it as well.
Hello, lovelies! University has been cranking up its difficulty at the moment and I’ve been struggling to keep up with posting regularly. Thankfully, Marta @ The Book Mermaid saved my butt by tagging me in a nice and easy book tag!
I freaking love fall. Or, more realistically, I love the idea of fall. I live in Texas, so it gets pretty hot in the summer. I recently moved cities now that I’m going to university and the place where I moved to is way more humid than where I used to live. Humidity + heat + large campus is not a good look. I look forward to fall every year, but the typical fall weather only lasts a week here in Texas. We have six months of summer, one week of fall, six months of winter, and one week of spring. Basically, Texas hates nice temperatures. Anyhow, I love the thought of autumn, and I’m ready to fall straight into this tag! (bad, dry pun intended)
Hello! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve been on the blogosphere.
Over the end of the summer, I scheduled a whole bunch of book reviews to tide me over into the first month of college. I just wanted to make sure I got acclimated to my new environment, and I didn’t want to add onto the already pretty rigorous workload (at least for the first month). Now I’m back, and I’ve been tagged by Norees @ No Reads Too Great and The Orangutan Librarian to do this tag! Please, please, please check out their blogs because they are both very lovely folks who make some pretty interesting content!
I’m always down to try some bookish quizzes to further procrastinate on my homework assignments, and this tag gives me an excuse to do so so let’s do it!
[Also, a fair warning: I have either not read a lot of these/it’s been a while since I’ve read a book in this series, so I’m not going to know a lot of characters that have been chosen.]
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling the back-to-school spirit right now. Everywhere I turn I see school supplies and backpacks. Online, there are so many back-to-school deals. On YouTube, people who look like they’ve graduated years ago give young students advice. It got me thinking, what could I contribute to the back-to-school frenzy? I’d have crappy school advice, but I do know YA books! Why not recommend some good YA books that are set at school?
Whether you’re already in school, about to go, or done with school and want to reminisce about your past as a student, here are some YA books with school settings!
