Hello bookworms of the universe! How are we feeling on this charmed Thursday?? I got my braces tightened today and my entire face feels like it’s been blended and then sandwiched between the jaws of a crocodile. We’re 10/10 thriving over here. But I had ice cream after, and since ice cream soothes the soul,… Continue reading I’ll Be The One // pure and unbridled joy in book form
For all of you lovely people who have been around for a while, you might have picked up on the fact that I like pirates. Just a little bit. You might have also picked up on the fact that I have the patience of a walnut and despise cliffhangers with every ounce of my being… Continue reading Namesake // I’m not screaming, you’re screaming
Oy! Happy Saturday! I've been waffling on what sort of post to write for today. I flipped through like eight ideas before actually landing on one I vibed with. Waffling as a verb: one of April's talents. I should probably mention that today is my 16th birthday. I wanted to do something birtdhay-centric and fun… Continue reading 8 Fictional Worlds I Want to Travel To // featuring candle magic and my birthday!!
Oy! How are we doing on this fine Tuesday evening? I've officially completed my fourth day back to in person school and I think I deserve a participation medal. I know, I know, I hate on participation medals for the most part, but the amount of social interaction I've not only endured, but participated in,… Continue reading Eclipsed! // Mini Reviews of Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar, and Dating Makes Perfect by Pintip Dunn
Do you know what's absolutely wild? We hit 200 followers yesterday. Two-zero-zero. Holy guacamole. It's still insane to think there are people out there, around the entire freaking globe, that read the sleep deprived words that I furiously type into the keyboard at odd hours of the night. There are actual real live people that… Continue reading Recipe For A 5 Star Read // what makes a book a five star read???
Thank you to Riddhi for putting this all together! I loved answering all of her questions!! Do go check out her blog when you get a chance!
Hey everyone! We are now into the second last week of blogger interviews! Today I will be interviewing April @Booked Till Midnight. She has a really nice blog, with awesome content, so do give it a follow!
Let’s get started with the interview!
Me:Tell me something about yourself.
April: Oy! I’m April and my favorite type of donut is the type with chocolate frosting. Preferably with sprinkles, because sprinkles make everything better.
Me: Oh, I like the same kind of donuts too! So,why did you start blogging?
April: My new year’s resolution for 2020 was to start reviewing the books I read. I had been writing reviews for a couple months when I accidently stumbled into bookstagram. Little did I know there was a whole book community out there. After multiple evenings spent scouring the black hole that is bookstagram, and then even more sleep deprived nights…

Expectations are the leading cause of bookish disappointment, according to a recent self-analysis conducted by April. More times than not, a person will be expecting something specific, or maybe just greatness in general, only to have their feelings liquid-fied and stomped on. And when I say liquid-fied, I mean that in the worst way possible,… Continue reading Perfect on Paper // I found a new favorite
Oy! March is over! As a whole I'd probably rate March 4/5 stars. I mean... The weather towards the beginning of the month was absolute GARBAGE (read: snow) but turned it around towards the end. Partial credit. I unleashed some inner chill during the month and the lack of motivation and slight burnout was no… Continue reading March Wrap Up
Out of all of fantasy hopes and wishes, I would bet that being a witch is probably the most realistic of them all. Being a pirate is never going to happen, as I live in a landlocked state. Dragons are highly unlikely, unless I discover a dragon egg. Time Travel involves science, but I am… Continue reading Sweet and Bitter Magic // witches, plagues, curses oh my!
I think I need to set a new rule for myself: no starting books after midnight. I assumed that I would be able to exhibit some semblance of self control, seeing how the book in question is a book I’ve already read before but noooooo. I really thought to myself hmm I’ll just read one… Continue reading Bookish and the Beast // Review
