5 Books I Didn’t Expect to Love | Spoiler Alert: I Did!

Deciding what to read next is hard.

As bookworms, we know this. As bloggers, we especially know this. Who has time to read a book that they’re just not interested in? As such, I generally don’t bother picking up books that I’m not at least 70% sure I’ll enjoy. I mean, my TBR is begging for mercy as it is, and it just cannot afford the extra weight.

And the Bookish Oscar Goes To…

I’m not really an Oscars type of person. Celebrities, Hollywood… just not what I’m interested in. But, do you know what I am interested in? BOOKS! Shocking, right?

So if any of you bibliophiles like me are out there, and decided to ditch the Oscars this year, I’ve created a bookish one for you!

“Jordyn. Eight months? That’s kind of a random number!” Yes it is! But you’ll only be able to find out why eight months is so symbolic in the actual blogiversary post! Get psyched for that. I know it’ll keep you up at night.

13 Diverse Books I’m Afraid I’ll Have to Read This Year

Haha, afraid. Because, you know… Happy Friday the 13th!

Friday the 13th has always seemed like a mini-Halloween to me. I mean, sure, you don’t dress up and go trick-or-treating, but it does have that spooky aspect to it.

In honor of today, I’m talking about 13 diverse books that I totally need to get my hands on this year. And, despite the title that was created to celebrate this “holiday”, I’m not afraid of any of these. On the contrary, I’m freaking pumped to read them. Some have already been released, some have yet to be published, but either way, I’ve got to read these books before the year is up.

A Reading Year in Review | Goodbye 2016

I’m not going to say that this reading year sucked, because it didn’t. I read some great things – in fact, I even found my new favorite book/trilogy! Yay!

But, if I had to describe my year in books in one word, it would be… mediocre.

My multi-month reading slump made it difficult to keep a steady rhythm of reading. The whole pick up a new book, devour it, then pick up the next one. Rinse and repeat. That was last year’s reading. This year, not so much.

10 Books in 10 Words | Harry Potter Edition

I was in the process of writing a sequel to my 10 Books in 10 Words post when I thought, “Hey, you know what would be cool?? 10 Books in 10 Words, but with the Harry Potter books!” And you know what? That would be cool, so here it is.

Confessions of a Bookaholic | School Has Ruined My Reading Life

I am in a reading/bookstagram/book blogging slump. The first step is admitting I have a problem, right? Great… now what???

If you couldn’t tell by my nine day absence, I am in a slump 😦 . I hate to make excuses, but school just started and… I just stopped. Stopped reading, stopped writing, just stopped. And that sucks because I have so many books on my TBR (as any bookworm does) and I’ve been reading the same one for almost three weeks!

So, in the spirit of confessions (and in a hopefully successful attempt to get me back in the swing of things), I’ve compiled a short list of my bookish confessions/facts about me.

Top Ten Tuesday: AWW Moments in Books | BE PREPARED FOR THE FEELS

So, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme made by The Broke and the Bookish and I’ll let you read more about it here. I was really excited that this week’s theme was REWIND! Meaning, you can go back and pick any theme that’s been done. I picked one from all the way back in 2011: Top Ten AWW Moments. The way this is going to work is, underneath each picture is going to be the AWWWWWWW moment with a little gushing. If you haven’t read the book and want to, then don’t read the moment because of SPOILERS! But if you have read the book, please enjoy becoming incredibly gooey with me, reliving these scenes, and getting a major hit of the feels. This are in no particular order because how in the world would I pick?

The Olympics Book Tag

In case you haven’t heard (where have you been?) the Olympics start tomorrow! Personally, I’ve always loved watching the Olympic Games. The excitement, the anticipation, the patriotism, etc. And so, I thought, why not combine the Olympics with something even more amazing: reading!
