The Haitian Health Foundation has been working to provide public health services to thousands of people, and they are working hard to help as many people as they can who have been effected by the earthquake.

If you are able, please consider donating to this amazing organization.

The Evermore Book Tag

Hello! Lori tagged me for the Evermore book tag a while ago, which I was so happy about, because I love Evermore (Taylor Swift’s newest album), and the tag looked so fun. However, when I started working on the tag I got slightly mixed up, and accidentally did the Evermore book tag that the wonderful Ruby did a while ago, that I confused with the one that I was tagged in.

Because I did all of the prompts before realizing I had the wrong tag, I’m going to just stick with the tag that Ruby did! So, thank you so much Lori for the tag, and thank you to Ruby for the amazing post that gave me all of these prompts. I loved these prompts, so I’m going to get right into the tag from here, and not dwell any longer on my little mix up!!

My 2 year blogiversary: things I’ve learned, and how my blog has changed!

Today is a very special day, for me, and for Book Nook Bits, because today, August 21st, my blog turns two years old!! I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for two years now; I’ve changed so much since I first decided to start my blog. It was the summer before seventh grade, before COVID, before so much. Now, I start high school in a couple weeks, and I feel like I’m a completely different person.

For this post, I wanted to look at some of my older posts and see how my blogging has changed. I’m also going to reflect on a few things I’ve learned, that I wish I’d known when I started blogging. So, I’m going to get right into the post!

What I loved in the Shadow and Bone Netflix adaptation

I got my first covid vaccine on Saturday, and I was so tired for the rest of the day and most of Sunday that I really didn’t have then energy to post. I’m really grateful I was able to get my shot though, and it was so exciting to see that the Pfizer vaccine was approved for ages 12-15. The symptoms I had were a headache, being very tired, and my arm was pretty sore, but after a little over a day I felt pretty much better.

Anyways, if you haven’t already, and you’re able to where you live, you should go get your covid vaccine.

So, onto the post! On April 23rd, the Netflix show Shadow and Bone was released, which is the adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s YA fantasy Shadow and Bone. The show is an adaptation of the first book in the Shadow and Bone trilogy, and also takes characters from the duology set in the same world, Six of Crows.

This is the first of a few posts I have planned about the Shadow and Bone, and I’m really excited to share this one!! I thought I’d start by writing about some of the things that I loved in the adaptation, so that’s what the post is about.

I also made this post as spoiler free as possible. I have mentioned characters that appear in the show from the books, as well as a few minor details mentioned in the trailer, but other than that, there is nothing.

The Babysitters Club Book Tag

I was tagged for this by Ruby a while ago, and I’m excited to finally be getting to it! I read a few of the Babysitters Club books in elementary school, although I never really got into the series. My sister loves them though, and she always is listening to the audiobooks, so I’ve ended up hearing bits and peices of a lot of the books!

Anyways, the prompts are all really fun, so I’m going to get right into the tag!

The Artisar book tag is inspired by the book Raybearer, which has been on my TBR for a while. Doing this tag has made me want to read the book even more, so hopefully I’ll get to that soon! Anyways, I’m going to get right into the questions!

Hoopla: all about the platform, how it works, and what it offers

Hello! This week is my spring break, and I’m spending a few days with my family at the coast, which is fun. It’s the Oregon coast, so pretty cold and windy, but it’s nice to get away from home for a bit. I was able to walk on the beach earlier today, which was amazing, and now I’m happy to be here with another blog post!

Today, I’m going to be talking about a platform for ebooks, audiobooks, and more called Hoopla! It’s free through your local library, and if your library has it, then all you need to sign up is a library card. So, I’m going to get right into this post all about the platform!
