5 Tips for a Book Un-haul

A little while ago, my friend Tricia and I went to a used bookstore to sell some of our books, I donated the rest to a different one in my hometown. Altogether, I got rid of 32 books. I’ll be honest, it was a little sad parting ways with them, and it got me thinking…

Most avid readers can tell you that sometimes our books can feel a little like our pets: cute, comforting, and something we never, ever want to get rid of. But there simply isn’t enough space in my house to shelter all the books I’d ever want. So, I spent two days going through every book I own and deciding which ones to keep and which ones to get rid of. And it was tougher than I expected! So I here’s my advice for anyone who might be facing the same bookish dilemma.Read More »

Happy Friday everyone! I know I’ve been kind of quiet this week; my life got a little interesting and everyone and their mother was asking me for favors. But hopefully, I can get everything done over the weekend, and I’ll be back in full force again next week!

4 Tips for Ending a Book Hangover

Happy Friday fellow readers! I hope you all had amazing weeks!

For me, my week was pretty slow in terms of reading. In case you couldn’t tell by the title of this post, I’ve hit a dreaded book hangover. For anyone who’s unaware, a book hangover is similar to a reading slump; it’s a time when you really don’t feel like reading, but it’s caused by reading an AMAZING book and feeling like nothing could measure up (hence the hangover part).

In my case, I’ve read FOUR amazing books all in a row (Six of Crows duology, The Bear and the Nightingale, and I’m about 10 pages from finishing The Language of Thorns (I just don’t want it to end!!)), and now, I’m dealing with the consequences.

So, this post is as much for me as it is for everyone else, because, holy cannoli, I need some help getting out of this hangover! Without any further ado, my tips for ending a book hangover!

Monthly Wrap-Up- October 2017

Happy November awesome people! I hope you all had a fun and exciting Halloween!

I’m running into a bit of a problem here; there are all these awesome bookstagrammers who host amazing monthly challenges, and I love taking part! But, in November, they’re all fall-themed. I love fall, and I want all the fall-themed photos, but as of last week, where I live no longer looks like fall. All the leaves were blown off in a storm, everything just looks dead, and we are all waiting for our usual feet upon feet of snow.

So, I’m gonna do my best, but my bookstagram will probably look pretty winter-y for a while.

But before I get too carried away with how excited I am for November and Thanksgiving and brisk, gloomy days, here’s what I got up to during the month of October!
