January was a relaxing start to the new year, and felt like it flew by way too quick.
I was on break for basically the entirety of the month, and I’m lucky enough to have had that time to relax after a stressful semester of classes. I managed to finish 4 books, which admittedly is less than I had hoped for. That being said, they were all high ratings, and I stand by the sentiment of quality over quantity.

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.
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.
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.
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!

Depending on where you are in the world, the leaves are changing colors, the weather is getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter. All signs point to us being one day closer to 🎃👻spooky season👻🎃 aka, the best time of year.

HELLO!!! It has been over a month (‼️) since my last post but I am back with a new one today 🥳. So, there are a couple of reasons I haven’t been very active. To sum it up, I:

It’s been a minute since I was tagged to do these, but hey, I’m finally getting around to book tags again! Thank you so so much if you’ve nominated me to do a tag and sorry it has taken me so long to get around to them. I promise I’ll catch up soon though, and today I’m going to be doing The Feelings Book Tag, which I was nominated to do by both Emily @Frappes And Fiction and Rania @Rania’s Rambling Reads . So again, thanks to Emily and Rania, and make sure you check their blogs out if you haven’t already 😁

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.

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
