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.

Five.

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”:

    Holy.

    Whoa.

    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

    I AM IN LOVE WITH THE SECRET DIARY OF LIZZIE BENNET.

    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 …
