Double Review: The Dream Thieves & Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Hello, blog peeps!

I’m realizing, while looking at my stats for this blog, that I haven’t been posting very regularly on here. Which I feel badly about. I guess I’ve just been so busy with life stuff that I sort of forget how many days go between posts. Time flies when you’re having fun, and sometimes when you’re not. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, to make up for it, I’m posting two reviews in one! I also thought this might be a bit easier for everyone, since the two books I’m reviewing are the second and third books in a series: The Raven Cycle. I reviewed the first book in this series, The Raven Boys, a couple weeks ago after finishing it in just a couple days. You can read that review here. Since then, I’ve marathoned the next two books, The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue (click the titles to view their Goodreads pages). And if you know me at all, you know I can fly through a series when I’m enjoying it. My bookish friends have told me that The Raven Cycle is like a black hole that’s sucking me in. And maybe it is. But through all the fangirl feelings, shipping, and browsing the internet for fan-art and tumblr posts, I’ve been enjoying the ride into oblivion.

Coffee Book Tag

What’s up, my book peeps?

I’ve been so busy with all the stupid adult responsibilities I have, I haven’t had time to read, post on bookstagram, or post here. It’s the lamest thing ever. Growing up isn’t all unicorns and free books, guys.

Anyway, in the small amount of free time I have, I’ve been looking around for inspiration for my next blog post (that’s this one!), and while I have a list of things I could write about, writing about coffee on a day when I could really use another cup seemed like fun. A few people I follow have done the Coffee Book tag, and while I feel like one of them might have tagged me (code for: I commented my undying love for the tag and they awkwardly told me I should give it a go ๐Ÿ˜‚). So, I’m sort of tagging myself. But that’s okay because I’m an independent person. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And since I haven’t technically been tagged, I’ll take the suffering away from you by tagging anyone who reads this who would like to do it! It’s perfect for a rainy day post, when you need a hot beverage. And on that note, is anyone else craving autumn? Or is that just me? It’s my favorite season for a reason, and while I like summer, it always feels a little too long.

The Liebster Award

Hello blog friends!

I was nominated for the Liebster award, which is an awesome award to help encourage the discovery of new blogs! ๐Ÿ˜Š Since the folks around here are lovely, I was nominated by two different blogs, meaning I have a lot of questions to answer. The rules of this award are simple:

I’m baaack!ย 

Guys!  Its been a long time. I think months. And I’m so sorry for that! When I started this blog along with my bookish Instagram, I was so excited and caught up in finally being able to talk about my passion for books, that I forgot that I’m in nursing school. And let me tell you, it takes up a lot of time. I’ve barely been able to find reading time, much less time to blog! But, all that is going to change, because today I took my final exam of nursing school! My graduation is this Thursday! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m … Continue reading I’m baaack!ย 

Review: Undeniably Chosen by Shelly Crane

Hello lovelies! Before I get into the review of this book, I want to mention that the Significance series is one of my all time favorites. I’ve read all 4 previous installments at least 10 times. This series is one that I can always fall back on like a loyal friend. It’s guaranteed to get me out of a reading slump, becasue it’s the perfect combination of romance and paranormal genres. Sometimes I just like my romance without any drama ๐Ÿ™‚ And in the previous novels, Caleb and Maggie were always a united front against every obstacle. And I love … Continue reading Review: Undeniably Chosen by Shelly Crane

Book Talk: A Bookish Tattoo?

Hey everyone! Happy Spring! I love the springtime. It’s my 2nd favorite season! Well, this isn’t a review. But I figure that I want this to just be a place where people who love books can talk and vent. And share ideas related to books! So, today I am sharing some of my obsession over tattoos. I actually just got my first tattoo last Wednesday! Its a Camellia flower, which are my favorite. And I already want another! I love the customization and heart that goes into a tattoo. It’s a personal way to make something you love a part … Continue reading Book Talk: A Bookish Tattoo?
