On Blogging Slumps (I’m in one. BIG TIME.)

They happen to every blogger, and right now, it’s happening to me. Over the last 30 days I’ve posted a grand total of five times.


Two reviews, two Top Ten Tuesdays, and one Book Chat. AND I DON’T EVEN CARE. Somewhere along the way of blogging, I’ve lost that urge to share my thoughts.

Book Chat: What’s “My” Non-Fiction?

A couple of weeks ago, Hannah @ So Obsessed With posted this absolutely fantastic post about non-fiction and finding what works for you. I’ll admit, non-fiction has never interested me much until recently. As Hannah so keenly points out, reading something you don’t care about (or in my case, having to read it for school) …

    Review: “Isla and the Happily Ever After” by Stephanie Perkins

    My Review of “Isla and the Happily Ever After”:



    For perhaps the first time in three or four years, a book so thoroughly blew me away that I sat down to read it and immediately reread it cover to cover. Not skimmed for review notes. No. A complete and total reread. I read …

    Review: “The House of the Four Winds” by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory

    My Review of “The House of the Four Winds”:

    “The House of the Four Winds” had a lot going for it. I mean for starters, oogle that cover for a minute. Look at that fierce lady pirate! She’s got a sword and a pirate hat and she’s smirking/scowling like she means business.

    The book had …

    Review: “Capstone” (Cornerstone #4) by Misty Provencher

    My Review of Capstone:

    I hate saying this, but whereas Cornerstone, book 1 in the series, started off so strongly, the rest of the series has declined.

    One of the things I hated the most was how Provencher handled the relationship between Nalena and Garrett. When they infiltrated the Fury’s headquarters in Jamb, Garrett had …

    Book Chat: Keeping a Tidy TBR

    Last year, one of the biggest challenges I completed was TBR Madness – a self-inflicted combination of book ban, TBR whittling, and an appraisal of my bookish spending.

    Keeping a Tidy TBR

    Since then, one of my goals has been to keep my TBR pile under 20. That’s gone pretty well, and it’s really changed my …

    Re-Read Round Up: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Re-Read Round Up is an original feature wherein I talk about books I’m rereading and may have already reviewed, or that I just want to talk about in a non-review format.

    For some reason, while Goblet-of-Fire-the-book never stood out to me in the series overall, Goblet-the-movie has always been my favorite. Goblet-the-movie …

    Review: “The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet” by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick


    Did you watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries? Because they’re totally and completely amazing and YOU SHOULD. Like every LBD fan, I was super excited about the book, but not sure exactly how it would be different from the web series.

    The Book as a Multimedia …
