October has come and gone all I can think is how in the actual hell are we two months away from 2019. I’m just. This year has been a whirlwind so I’m glad it’s coming to an end, but also, it was so fast? I’ll stop babbling now and get on to the wrap-up because I know we’re all probably freaking out about this.
When I decided to create my blog, I knew I had to spend a lot of my time and effort into creating good and interesting content. But I took the step anyway because I love books too much and I enjoy talking about them and recommending the ones I liked.
But there are many factors that go into your blog’s success and one of them is where you are based. Continue reading

In today’s post I have decided to embarass myself by willingly referencing posts of mine that are over two years old. I thought it was a good idea to check back on opinions I had back then and see if I felt the same way…that until I actually reread the posts and cringed so hard, my teeth were grinding. I’m still going through with this because I love pain and I’M NOT A CHICKEN. So what I’m basically going through two posts, one of the tropes I love, one of thoses I hate and see if I still feel the same. So this should be…interesting. I strongly urge you to read those posts first, they’re fairly short…compared to the ones I write now I mean. Continue reading

One of my favourite things about being a blogger is having blogger friends to share my love for books with, and that continuously produce quality bookish (and non-bookish) content for us to read and enjoy. So of course I want to share my love for them, which I did by sharing some of my favourite bloggers BUT. When I saw the Blogging Buddies + Books Tag on Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books‘ blog, I knew I HAD to do it. So thank you for putting it on my radar and kinda, sorta, tagging me haha.
Look at the sky and scrunch up your eyes.
Now, what do you see?
You know what I see? I see myriad skies at once – orange sprouting grey tufts, blue gilded gold, a sombre red grouching very noticeably. I sense words trickle through my mind – a brazen shower of emotions and thoughts.
I see the skies I’ve read. Continue reading
