Hi beauties! This is just a short little post saying that if anyone want to follow me on Bloglovin’ please do! I made it a long time ago (like when I first started this blog) but haven’t done much with it. I recently, after a long time, finally added the Bloglovin’ button to my site.
Also, if anyone has any tips on how to grow a following on Bloglovin’ please let me know. I barely have any followers there.
Do you have a Bloglovin’ account? Have you had success there?
Hi beauties! Just wanted to drop in and say that I’m super excited to announce that I have been chosen to be one of The Book Drop’s ambassadors!
The Book Drop is a book subscription service that features a variety of genres. Their mission is to bring the independent bookstore to you! I personally love independent bookstores because they carry books you don’t typically see in more mainstream stores.
I am subscribed to Books for Tea, which is one of their most popular subscriptions. Books for Tea is perfect for lovers of historical fiction, contemporary, and literary fiction. They also have subscriptions for YA and middle grade books. Each book (which comes hand wrapped!) comes with a signed bookplate and/or letter from the author. To check out their past book selections click here.

Hi! So after a year of blogging, I’ve finally decided to do my first ever wrap-up post. I’ve never felt a pressing desire to do one until now. I’m unsure if I will do this every month, so don’t be surprised if I don’t have a wrap-up for February.
This month I read 7 books which I am super happy about. I feel very accomplished, especially since a new semester has started.
Overall, I enjoyed most of what I read this month. Some books weren’t super amazing, but were still enjoyable. It took me forever to get my first 5 star read of the year but it was well worth the wait.
How was your January? How many books did you read? What was your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
Initially, to start off 2019, I was going to make an actual TBR jar. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a jar where you put down all the names of your unread books and randomly pick one to read. I realized this would take a lot of time to make. From cutting up the paper to writing the names down, I just don’t have the time to do that since I start school on Monday. So instead I made a “virtual” one, which is a spreadsheet. It was so quick and I love that I know the exact number of unread books on my shelves (it currently stands at 87). To select a book, I’m just going to use a random number generator. It’s not as pretty as a jar would be, but it sure is practical.
I’m so excited to have created this. I may even edit it later on to add more information like the date I received a book. I think it will be fun to see how this goes this year. Since I read multiple books at a time, my plan is to have one of my currently readings come from this jar.

Yesterday I received an email from BookSparks saying I was chosen to be an ambassador for their YA winter reading challenge and I’m so excited! I was an ambassador for them for their YA summer reading challenge and I can’t wait to do it again.
If you check out their site, you can see the three books that will be featured this challenge. They all sound so interesting and I’m especially excited for The Tesla Legacy by K. K. Perez because her debut book, Sweet Black Waves, was in the summer reading challenge and I just loved it. I’m looking forward to reading more from her.
