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 😂). So, I’m sort of tagging myself. But that’s okay because I’m an independent person. 😉 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.

Hello blog friends!
I was nominated for the Liebster award, which is an awesome award to help encourage the discovery of new blogs! 😊 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:
- Thank to blogger(s) that nominated you
- Answer the 11 questions given to you in your nomination
- Nominate 5-11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers
- Inform those people that they’ve been nominated
- Give them 11 (mostly book-related) questions to answer
So, to start out, I was nominated by Aralyn from Paper Addictions and Magic. Read her post here. And awhile back (maybe an embarrassingly long time ago) I was also nominated by Lauren from Comma Hangover, and you can read her post here. Thank you so much to you both! You’re both amazing.💙
Since I have two sets of questions to answer here, I’ll start with Lauren’s.

It’s Tuesday again and I thought today I’d share the books I’ve bought recently! I have been on a bit of a book buying ban the last month, because I needed to give my bank account a break 😉 However, a bookworm can only hold off for so long. And since I’ve been to a bigger city nearby twice in the last week, I was able to visit the glorious landmark known as Barnes and Noble. Did I mention twice? In one week? It sounds too good to be true. So! Look below to see the newest editions to my shelf!
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows.
I really wanted to get this book because a good friend of mine @booksalamode on Instagram, just finished this book and she raved about how funny it is! And I also love The Princess Bride, and it’s been compared to that story as well. Plus, I love the creativity here. Taking a tragic part of history and giving it a new ending? I’m hope Lady Jane Grey would be proud.

He loves so wholly. It is his nature. He blinks, then tries to find the right response. “I-” he stumbles. “I’m so afraid, June. So afraid of what might happen to-” I put two fingers against his lips to hush … Continue reading Quote Moment: Champion
Good morning and happy Tuesday! It’s actually Tuesday while I’m writing this, so I’m already ahead of the game from the last two weeks 😉
I don’t have many bookish things to discuss today. I’m still organizing my thoughts and working on my review for The Last Star. I ended up being sleepy last night so I went to bed without starting It Ends With Us. And there aren’t any books releasing today that I just have to get. So, what am I even doing here, you ask? Well, I thought since I’m just hanging around snacking and the lovely sun is shinning, I would share with you guys some of my essential summer items that are not books. But may have to do with books. Okay, and some of them might be books. 😉 Basically, things you need on a hot day in the sun/on the beach/by the river/in your backyard/or even maybe indoors if you burn easily like I do. Or maybe you shy away from the light because you’re a vampire. This is a judgement-free zone.

Hey guys! I realized I’ve been a schmuck and I haven’t posted my Tidbit the last two Tuesdays. So, even though it’s Friday, I decided to post anyway, because when Friday rolls around, we can do what we want, right? 😉
So, I’ve been in a horrible reading slump. I think I delayed it a little because right after I finished reading A Court of Mist and Fury (the book responsible for my hangover and slump), I jumped right back into Shadow and Bone, which I’d been in the middle of before I started ACOMAF. So, once I finished that, I couldn’t get into Seige and Storm. I thought maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood, but I can’t really get into any book.

Good morning! ☕️
Today I wanted to talk a little about rereading books. So grab your tea or coffee and let’s talk books!
I thought it this some this morning while I was rereading sections of Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. It is book three in the Shatter Me trilogy.
Now, I’ve reread this trilogy twice since I originally read it a couple years ago. And while I was flipping through and finding my favorite romance moments to read again (something I do a lot with books 😂) I was wondering, what makes a book rereadable? Why do we revisit some books like old friends while others sit on the shelf after one read-through? I’m going to share my thoughts with you guys, and I’d love it if you’d share any thoughts you have in the comments! Or just make your own blog post about this topic so I can read it! 😊

Earlier I saw the Alphabet book tag by @ohbookish and I decided I’d like to give it a shot! 🙂 It seems like a lot of fun! But also kind of hard…
So, the rules are simple! Name a book for each letter of the alphabet. The book has to be either one you own or one you have read. And then wait to see how long it takes you to do it… 😂

Hey all! I was just standing around in my kitchen being hungry when I realized it’s Tuesday! That means it’s tidbit time! So, what to talk about today? How about the new release of the week, The Problem with Forever … Continue reading Tuesday Tidbit: May 17th Releases
