The Emoji Challenge

FINALLY! The weekend is here! And I am stoked not to do anything but sleep and read. I think the entire book community knows I am a fiend for emojis. I probably use them way too much and find any reason for using them. So I had to do this challenge Sha and Mandy tagged me in. I want to thank both of you two. I am excited to do this post.

Rules

  • tag the creators @bookprincessreviews
  • share one thing you learned about the person who tagged you
  • for each prompt, you can use a maximum of three emojis
  • tag at least two other bloggers you want to get to know better

What I learned about the both of them is that Mandy doesn’t like TOG (it gets better in the later sequels) and that Sha is Canadian (I had no clue). Before you get to my post, give some love to Mandy and Sha, who created the challenge. And if you don’t feel like answering a few questions, you can always leave your answer blank. I hope you all have fun! Happy weekend!

Beyond the Blurb | Act Your Age and Read YA

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that young adult readers will always be shamed. I’m not surprised that someone has decided to criticize YA readers, authors, and books.

Since I’m primarily a YA blogger, I thought I’d address this issue in the next installment of my discussion series, Beyond the Blurb. And before we get to the post, let’s give Melissa from The Reader and the Chef a round of applause for addressing this topic. A writer from Fordham Ram, Fordham University’s journal of record, suggested readers read their age. I understand the original poster is an aspiring writer, but antagonizing a potential and a powerful audience isn’t necessarily the right direction to go before starting a writing career.

YA Playlist Tag

Morning, bloggers!

This week feels as if it has been a month. And I’m still trying to process everything. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m not alone, right? I’ve been at two different hospitals on four separate trips. And I’m done. The weekend cannot come soon enough.

Jess and Teagan from Fiction No Chaser tagged me in their first tag. I’ve been trying to find the right characters and songs for this post, so it’s taken me much longer than I anticipated. But it’s here! I want to thank my two dark souled sisters for tagging me.

Rules

  • Pick your characters
  • Choose their song
  • Link to OG post at FictionNoChaser
  • Tag some friends

Top Ten Tuesday | Books on My Spring 2019 TBR

Typically, when a new season arrives, I come out with new graphics. I have the clipart, but, uh, life has decided to kick start my inner klutz. First, I sprained my toe. And while working today, I badly bruised my tailbone when the insidious chair I was sitting on collapsed. So I’m slightly behind on my blog because of that and because of my Mom’s treatments. You’re stuck with the winter theme.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. Besides breaking my butt, I’m excited for the new Spring titles coming. But the new season also allows us to check up on our backlist, which mine is in desperate need of trimming.

So I hope you all enjoy my choices! Have fun, everyone!

Do I Have That Book Challenge

Happy Saturday, bloggers!

You know, I typically enjoy when the weekend arrives, but I have so much to work on. And I feel as if I need about three more days to sleep so I can handle everything. ๐Ÿ˜‚ So since I love procrastinating, I thought I’d work on a new post instead. I found this challenge on Bibliophagist. Sara hasn’t tagged anyone, but I loved her answers. And I thought it looks like fun.

Enjoy!

Rules

1. Time yourself trying to find each prompt on your shelf
2. Try and beat the time of the person who challenged you.

3. Donโ€™t forget to tag your challenger and the original creator.
4. Have fun!

Top Ten Tuesday | Standalone Books That Deserve a Sequel

Hey all!

Where are my clumsy people at? I know I’m not alone. I started off the week by badly spraining one of my toes, But thankfully, this post kind of makes up for most of that. I typically read series since I enjoy them more, but I’m interested in seeing what you all pick.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. This week’s prompt is all about standalone books that deserve a sequel.

Enjoy!

Monthly Wrap-Up: February 2019

Hey book fam,

Phew! Another month has passed, and I can let out a well-deserved sigh of relief. February was rather slow and hard for me personally. We finally got the results of my Mom’s cancer. And she’s in the early stages, which I can’t believe.

I wanted to take some time away from my blog. But you all were the reason why I stayed. You kept me smiling and laughing. You kept the shadows away. And I cannot thank you enough for all of your support.

Even though blogging is stressful, it has given me purpose and drive to strive forward, even when I feel I can’t get off the ground. So although February was arduous, I found an escape through this community and some great books. Now, let’s get to the wrap-up, yes?
