Another month, another Recent Reads post hitting your feed! This month was weird. It just felt like it went so fast, yet it seems like the books I read last month were ones that I read ages ago - not just a few weeks. Perception of time is a weird thing, though usually it goes … Continue reading Recent Reads [July 2017]
I’m going through a summer slump in the blogging department at the moment, but I found this great post by Holly at Nut Free Nerd listing 10 Reasons to Love Your Library.
Check it out – because it’s 1000% accurate – and give Holly some love!
And your library too.
Happy Tuesday! Since the lovely bloggers behind The Broke and the Bookish are taking a summer hiatus from creating TTT topics, I’ve decided to come up with some of my own for the next few weeks. This week I’ll be sharing my Top Ten Reasons to Love Your Library. As someone who worked at a library throughout my high school years I always look forward to visiting my local one on a regular basis during the summertime. I know everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to the formats of books they like to read (new, used, borrowed, digital, etc.) but I really think that libraries deserve more credit than they often receive! Here are ten reasons to give your local library a little more love:
1. Borrowing books = FREE. This is an obvious reason, but for many people I think it’s the most important one. I…

I found this tag from Jessica's blog and thought it was an interesting one to do. It was originally created by Jamie at Perpetual Page Turner and I'd like to thank her for creating another awesome book tag! This is also something perfect to fit into doing the A-Z Blog Challenge next month, which I'll … Continue reading A-Z Bookish Survey
I've come to realize lately that as a user of Goodreads, I need to be careful with it. Not in the same way you need to be careful with Facebook or Twitter though. What I mean is that I have recently noticed that I can be highly influenced by the ratings and reviews on books … Continue reading Treading Goodreads Carefully
While going through my reading journal this morning I realized that I forgot to list a book that I read last month in my June Reads post. I have no idea how it slipped from my mind while I was writing the post because I had my Goodreads pulled up with the books I've read … Continue reading I Forgot Something…
Is it just me, or is this year flying by a little too fast? I think the problem is, there are just too many books to read and not enough time. Especially since I now have a closer deadline to read some of the books I want to read because I'll be in grad school … Continue reading Recent Reads [June 2017]
If you are a fan of the nerd life, introverts, or fandoms... this is the book for you! Eliza and Her Monsters focuses on Eliza Mirk, a shy, weird, and friendless girl who would rather escape the real world into her art. She also happens to be famous online as LadyConstellation, the creator of the … Continue reading Eliza and Her Monsters [book review]
My last post was all about the startup of my new bullet journal. I tend to go through it at least once a day to see if there's anything I can add or just to mark off some of the items I'm completing on my lists. That's always the fun part of planners - checking … Continue reading The One Con of My Bullet Journal
After months of contemplation and weeks of research, I have finally joined the bullet journaling community! I have seen them on Instagram for about a year now, but never gave them much thought until earlier this year when I was looking for a planner. I had decided against it back in January because I thought … Continue reading I Started a Bullet Journal
I'm just going to leave this video right here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0KYU2j0TM4 Susan Cain is the author of the book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. I haven't read this book yet, but it's on my list (in fact, it's on my shelf). My best friend texted me the link to … Continue reading The Power of Introverts
May... where did you go? Though a lot of days felt like they were the longest day ever, this month went by very quickly. I celebrated my 26th birthday, got signed up for my own health insurance, and got accepted into graduate school. It's been quite a busy month. Book-wise as well... at least for … Continue reading Recent Reads [May 2017]
I wrote this letter to my Nanni two years ago, when it had been eight years since she passed away. Today marks ten years since she took her spot in Heaven. It's weird how it seems like it hasn't been that long, but at the same time it feels like it's been forever. Lately it … Continue reading It’s been ten years since I’ve seen you…
It's happening everyone! I'm going back! I got my acceptance email the other day saying that I have been accepted to Wayne State University's Online Master of Library Science program. This is something I've been mulling over for the past year and a half and after working in a library for nearly a year now, … Continue reading Back to School?
