Reasons I’ve Been a Blogger for 3 Years + A Peek At My Blogging Journal!

It’s hard to believe, but I have been a blogger for over three years.

I’ve been a Weebly blogger and a WordPress blogger. I’ve written posts about food and books and writing and so many others things (but mostly books). I’ve commented on blogs, I’ve had my blog commented on, I’ve had long posts and short posts and everything in between. I’ve been frustrated and sad, but most of all I have felt joy.

Even after years of hearing people say this, I can’t decide if this is the best advice ever or the worst advice ever. Let’s get to discussing!

Rapid Fire Reviews, July Edition {BONUS POST!}

Hello everyone! Welcome to the second ever edition of Rapid Fire Reviews here on Purely Olivia. 🙂

Though I didn’t have the best reading month in July, an upside is that every book I read was a book I was reading for the first time- meaning, no rereads! That’s a pretty big accomplishment for me. You might as well call me the Queen of Rereads.

So, to comemerate commemorate (I just spent quite a few minutes trying to spell that, until Google finally helped out) that occasion, I am going to be doing Rapid Fire Reviews of each book I read in July!

Books That Need to Be Movies (Listen Up, Hollywood!)

We all know that when it comes to books and movies, it’s hit or miss.

Today I’ll be sharing with you the books I think should become movies. And these aren’t just books I like- they’re books I believe would make wonderful, action-packed, moving movies. Let’s get started!
