What’s this? What’s this? There’s something very wrong! #bookbloggers

Haha, got your attention! You like my Jack Skellington reference? No, but seriously, this is horrible. I’m in serious trouble. Reading wise. I’ve not finished a book in 7 weeks!  I mean, yes, I’ve read a few pages here and there, but of DIFFERENT books. It’s seriously getting me down. I think me reading 9 books in June properly ruined me. So instead I’ve been editing my WIP, the one which I finished the first draft of a few years ago. It’s going…okay. So far. I’ve […]

Take it away, girl! 🙂 1: You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next? If I had that many books on my TBR, I’d probably just close my eyes and point to all the books. Whichever one I was pointing directly at is the one […]

#HotAndSticky Writing Challenge Weekly Update: Wait, it’s Week 2 already??? #AmWriting #WIP

#HotAndSticky Writing Challenge Weekly Update: Wait, it’s Week 2 already??? #AmWriting #WIP

  Is it…do my eyes deceive me? Is it the end of week 2 ALREADY? Woah. I mean, where has the time gone? Hopefully well spent, right? RIGHT?  See for yourself. Unfortunately, I’ve been a bad bunny this week and though, yes, I have been writing, I have also forgotten to keep track. So… If you didn’t already see my last update (which was a video), see it here:      So last week, I made it, in total to 45,943.  I’d started at just over […]


Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed

    Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. So hey guys! Long time no see on a Tuesday! I bring you today’s installment of 10 books…and this time it’s Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed, whether that be less love, more love, complicated feelings, indifference or that I thought it was great in a genre until I became more well read in that genre, and on and on. You get the idea. I had […]



Waiting on Wednesday: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Waiting on Wednesday: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

  “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her […]

Blog Talk: CURSE YOU, READING SLUMP!

  Yeah, guys. It’s that glorious time of year where, once again, I get a reading slump. I know, it’s terrible. Especially when I’ve just acquired a good number of new books. SIGH! I’ve been trying to reason with myself. That just because I’m not reading new books, I am at least getting other…more productive things done. Like my writing, or…yknow…videos recorded to upload. Something. ANYTHING! I wish I could say that, but I can’t. I mean, I’ve done a bit of writing, but that’s […]


Interview @ YallWest: Alexandra Bracken #YA #Authors

Interview @ YallWest: Alexandra Bracken #YA #Authors

Hey everyone! You guys know I went to YallWest, right? Well, I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing the brilliant Alexandra Bracken, author of The Darkest Minds trilogy and the recent Passenger, the sequel to it being Wayfarer which is released January 2017. When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She […]
