June 2019 Wrap-Up

Hey everyone! It’s time for a wrap-up! This month, I completed 6 books, which is a lot for me, but considering that I only had to read the last half (or, in one case, the last 50 pages or so) of two of those books, I feel like I...

Weird Things About YA Characters

Hey everyone! A few weeks ago, I was hanging out on Twitter, as I often do, and I saw Mia from Pen and Parchment tweet about how unrealistic it is that characters in contemporary books are shown waiting for acceptance/rejection letters to come in the mail, since these days,...

The Ebook Takeover

You may be looking at this title and thinking, “Ariel, what the heck does that even mean? The ebook takeover?” No, I’m not going to be talking about ebooks beating out physical books (which, at least last I checked, they’re not). All this post is about is my reading...

Book Unhaul

Hey everyone, welcome to another blog post! Recently, I’ve been making an effort to declutter my room (and my life) a bit. That includes, of course, getting rid of some books. I’ve done unhauls before, but I’ve never written a post about them, so I thought it might be...

2019 Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hey everyone! We’re already halfway through 2019, and I have a pretty good reason to freak out about my reading this year. It’s looking more and more like I’m not going to hit that goal of 50 books read, considering I’ve only read 13 and it’s June. In light...

The National Day Challenge

Did you know that pretty much every day is a holiday? No, really, it is. For example, today is June 14th, and according to this website I found, nationaldaycalendar.com, there are 9 different holidays just for today—in the United States, at least. Things like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween get...

Buzzword Readathon TBR

So the Buzzword Readathon, created by Booksandlala, is starting tomorrow, and I’m participating. The only challenge for this readathon is that you have to read books with some form of the word “you” in the title—or, if you’re reading in a different language, whatever word is the equivalent of...

Do I Have that Book? Challenge

I’ve seen this challenge/tag thing going around on BookTube recently, and I don’t know how well it applies to a blog since there’s supposed to be a timing element to it that 1) I’m not going to do and 2) even if I did do it, you wouldn’t be...

Series Crackdown Reading Recap

Hey everyone! Sunday marked the last day of the Series Crackdown Readathon, and now it’s time for my final update on how it went. I didn’t keep very good records of exactly how many pages/days I read during this readathon, so this post is probably going to be very...

June TBR

It’s time for another monthly TBR post, my first one in a while. I didn’t do any while I was in France because I didn’t have access to all my books and, well, I just figured I probably wouldn’t get much reading done anyway (which turned out to be...
