As I slowly morph this blog into a lifestyle/book blog, I will be doing a few more book-related posts that aren't necessarily reviews. This would be one of them. Since tags are common among bloggers when we're feeling uninspired or just want to have a little fun, I decided to look up book tags. I … Continue reading Ultimate Book Tag
In spring 2013 I became obsessed with watching YouTubers. You know, the people like Tyler Oakley, Andrea Russett, jennxpenn and the boys from Our 2nd Life.

I have another confession... I actually read this book before its predecessor, Anna and the French Kiss. Why? I liked the plot and I hadn't realized it was a part of a series by Stephanie Perkins. So, yes, I did read the first book knowing Anna and St. Clair's fate since they both appear in this … Continue reading Lola and the Boy Next Door [book review]
I've decided to do this... 101 things in 1001 days. From what I gather, it was started over at the Day Zero List website, which is a website where you can set up timed bucket lists to keep track of your progress and make sure you actually get things done.

"It used to mean something if someone was your friend. You didn't get friend requests. Someone didn't ask to be your friend. They just became your friend because you spent time with them and showed them that you cared." First of all, if you've never heard of Nev Schulman or Catfish, let me get you … Continue reading In Real Life: Love, Lies and Identity in the Digital Age [book review]
Seeing as it's April 1st I was going to do the whole 'I'm giving up blogging' joke, but I figured that there are probably other bloggers doing it and I didn't want to be another one in the mix.
