    Balancing College and Blogging

    Hello! Today I am going to talk about how I am balancing college and blogging. As you guys may or may not know, I am a second-semester freshman in College, and it was definitely an adjustment going from my structured High School schedule to a more free college schedule. Suddenly, I had all this unstructured time, and instead of being more productive, I tended to procrastinate a lot. It wasn’t until halfway through the semester that I realized I needed to be more productive with my time. So this is how I worked to balance my college life and blogging.   Devote one hour to reading a day I love…

    Apollycon 2019

    Good Morning! As you guys may (or may not) know, a few weeks ago I attended Apollycon! For those of you who do not know what Apollycon, here is a description from their website: “Apollyon is annual, multi-day reader event featuring Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult authors, panel programming, and social events, owned by #1 New York Times & Internationally Best-selling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout. ApollyCon was founded in 2015 and is currently coordinated by Stephanie Brown & Hannah McBride. “ It was so exciting to go and meet all these authors and fellow book lovers!

    My Favorite Bookish Shops

    Hi Guys! Today I am here to gush about some of my fave bookish themed shops! I love bookish candles, boxes and bookmarks and the people who sell them are all so nice and fun to talk with. I just wanted to share a list of some of my faves 🙂   FandomHoneyBees I literally don’t have a bad word to say about this shop. Mary’s bookmarks and prints are simply gorgeous and creative! This past January I had the honor of being a rep for this company and I hope to have the opportunity again soon (wink wink). From the colors to the fandoms everything is super amazing and…

    The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine

    Good Morning! Today I am reviewing The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine! If you know me, you know I love a good retelling, and I love retellings of Snow White. The reason I enjoy Snow White retellings is that I don’t like the Disney image of Snow White being so helpless and needing a man to save her. I love Once Upon A Time’s version in which Snow White is a badass that can kick ass. The Shadow Queen tells the story of Lorelai Diederich, a princess with magic in her blood who is on the run from our wicked Queen Irina after she killed Lorelai’s father. Our huntsman is…

    The Wicked King by Holly Black

    Hello! Today I am reviewing The Wicked King by Holly Black! I reviewed Cruel Prince a few weeks ago and The Wicked King came out on January 8th! I just finished reading it I am in awe. Holly Black has created a world that I never want to stop living in. Her world building skills are off the charts! I think that Jude is the definition of a badass female character and even though most of her decisions are morally questionable, they are in line with her character. She seems cruel but I do believe that most of her choices were made to protect Oak and give him what she never had, a childhood. Cardan has some…
