The End of Year Book Tag – 2021 edition

Hello! Today is a teacher grading day for me, so I don’t have school which is really really nice. I’m making the most of all the time off by doing this blog post, and also diving back into bookstagram. I haven’t posted there in over a month, but I’ve been working on a more wintry theme the past couple days that I’m really excited about.

My first post is going up in just a little bit, but right now you can see a little sneak peak of the new theme in the featured image at the top of this post!

If This Gets Out, by Sophie Gonzales and Cale Dietrich | ARC review

Hello! I didn’t have school today, which was really really nice, and I was able to write my review of If This Gets Out, by Sophie Gonzales and Cale Dietrich! I absolutely flew through the book in just a couple of days, and it really pulled me out of the reading slump that I was in for most of November. I’m excited to share all my thoughts on this wonderful book with you, so I’m going to dive straight into the post!

November 2021 wrap up and December goals

Well. It’s December 1st, meaning another month has come and gone in what feels like no time at all. I did nanowrimo this November, so most of my month was spent writing, which was a lot of fun. I am glad that it’s over though, and that now I can spend more time blogging, and just overall relaxing.

Anyways, I have a lot of plans for this next month, so I’m going to dive right into my November wrap up and my goals for December!

WWW Wednesday 64

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today was my last day of school this week because we have a long weekend for Thanksgiving which is really nice. I’ve spent most of this week writing and doing schoolwork, so I had very little time to read. I still read a little though, so here is a quick update on my current reading situation!

Writing update: a mid-ish nanowrimo check in

Hello! I can’t believe that we’re already over halfway through nanowrimo! I meant to get this post out last monday, but that just ended up not happening, so instead I’m bringing it to you today!

Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and the goal for nanowrimo is to write a novel in a month! This is my second year participating, and although it is hard to stay on track and write so much every day, it’s a lot of fun and I thought I’d make an update post about how nanowrimo is currently going for me!

I read a bunch today, so I’m excited to talk all about my current reading situation.

Let’s Talk Bookish: Balancing reading for your blog and other hobbies

Hello, and happy Saturday! I didn’t have school Thursday or Friday, and it’s been nice to relax a little over the weekend, although I didn’t get a ton done in terms of writing for nanowrimo, or blogging. It’s been a bit over a week since my last post, and I’ve pushed this post back a bit since I’ve been really busy with school. I think that this is a really great topic, and one that comes up a lot in my life since I have a lot to balance, between school, blogging, reading, and everything else in my life!

Let’s Talk Bookish: When a post doesn’t do very well

Hello, and happy Friday! I had a really busy week at school, and combined with nanowrimo, I’ve had no free time at all the last couple days.
