Books That Got me Into Reading

As someone who has considered herself a reader for basically my whole life, it’s hard to pinpoint the *one* book that really got me invested in the hobby. Surprisingly, though, it’s a question I get asked a lot!

Reading books is something I’ve loved to do since the day I learned to read, and before then, I still really enjoyed listening to stories read to me. They’ve always just been a constant in my life, and I’m grateful it’s a hobby I never really grew out of.

MY 2021 FAVORITES || Yearly Wrap-Up

YOU GUYS!! Can you believe there’s only a few more days left of 2021 😳 this year felt like the longest ever, but at the same time flew by really quick.

There were a lot of firsts. I moved into an apartment, did my first in-person semester of college, and inevitably, made a lot of new experiences there, some good and some bad. Regardless of how this year turned out, I know it’ll be a memorable one for so many reasons.

All that being said, I’m ready to say bye to 2021.

2021 Diverse Book Releases

Confession time: I’ve only read one 2021 release this year.

When the year started, I made it my own personal mission to read as many books on my backlist TBR as possible. That means that I’ve read a lot of books I’d been meaning to pick up in previous years, and caught up on those instead of new ones.

Books as Songs from Red (Taylor’s Version)

I have been COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS until Taylor Swift drops Red (Taylor’s Version),,, and on November 12th, you can probably catch me laying on the floor of my room with a box of tissues nearby 🥲 most of those tears will probably be shed from listening to the 10 minute version of All Too Well.

Now, whether or not you’re a self proclaimed swiftie, I’ve tried my best to have a book from a variety of genres so hopefully you can find something that fits the vibe! My goal was to have a book for everyone, but it did prove to be quite a challenge. This honestly might have been the hardest post I’ve ever written, and I realized in the process that I really have not read as much romance as I would’ve thought,,,and also I’m a huge fan of second-chance romance, apparently, so expect a lot of that.

NOTE: This list does not include every song from Red. I tried my best to do most of them though!

Book to Screen Adaptations That Are *Actually* Good

As readers, it is no secret that when our favorite books are announced to be turning into a show or movie, there’s usually a mix of emotions. Mostly, excitement and nervousness. A lot of times, movies/shows tend to ~mess up~ the book and I could probably give more bad examples of adaptations than good.

All that being said, there are definitely adaptations out there that have lived up to my expectations, and even a few that have surpassed them. All of these are my opinions and I’m only going to be talking about adaptations where I have read the book AND watched the movie or show.

Tweet Cute | book review

Surprise! I have been pretty bad about posting on here, which is kind of embarrassing since I said I’d be doing it more regularly in my June Wrap-Up 🤠 But truth be told, things have been a lot busier than I’d have expected. I’m wrapping up my summer courses (which are a lot harder than I’d have thought rip), preparing to move for college, and also practicing driving A LOT so I can *finally* get my license.

Thankfully, things aren’t too hectic to the point where I don’t get time to read! I’m excited to share my thoughts with you all on this fun YA contemporary <33

Nonfiction Books: How to Read More and Recommending my Favorites

If you’ve been with me and my blog for a while, then it’s no secret that I 100% prefer fiction books to nonfiction. There’s just something about being swept away in the lives of people who don’t exist and fantastical lands that’s unmatched. That being said, I have read a good number of nonfiction books, whether it be for school or on my own and have actually enjoyed quite a few of them. I’ll also admit that memoirs are definitely my preferred sub genre within nonfiction as a whole, so there are more of those on this list of recommendations.

Although nonfiction books aren’t always the most enjoyable, they can be fun if you’re interested in the subject matter and want to learn more about things you didn’t know about before. That being said, there is no pressure at all to read more nonfiction. In the past, I’ve seen there being major prejudice against people who primarily read fiction and even have been told myself that I wasn’t a real reader because I didn’t read about real life things. That is just not true at all and over time I have learned that I 100% prefer nearly any other genre. 🤷🏽‍♀️ All that being said, I do like to branch out occasionally from my comfort zone and have actually found myself liking some of the nonfiction books I’ve read. If you want to read more nonfiction and are not sure where to start, then this is the post for you!

Keep reading for tips on how to read more if you’re interested and some of my favorites!
