The Sunshine Blogger Award // Annoying Characters, Life-Changing Books, & More

Hey there, wonderful people!

July is a month full of sunshine, so what better time to do the Sunshine Blogger Award? I was kindly nominated by Maria, Lily, and Sissi for this award, and I’m so excited to participate today. ☀️

It’s been way too long since I last did a tag, and I’m a *little* behind, but I still love doing them, so I’ll try to stay caught up in the upcoming months. Even if it means I’m doing the tags a few months late. XD 

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Library Haul // ft. contemporaries galore (!!)

It’s no secret that I love the library.

One of the best things about summer is that I’m able to go to the library more often. And when I do go, I actually end up reading the books I got, and it makes me very happy!

A ton of the books I got are contemporaries that have been on my TBR for ages, so I’m really excited to see if y’all have read them and what your thoughts were.

Oh, and I’m planning to do a mini review post of all the books I mention in today’s haul in the upcoming weeks, so if you’re interested in knowing my thoughts, that’s coming. 😉 As is a mini reviews post for my last library haul.

Here’s an overview of all the books! This haul contains many gorgeous covers (as expected with contemporaries XD) and honestly the spines are gorgeous too?? Who knew the spines of books could be so aesthetically pleasing. Now, let’s get into the explanation of each book I got!

5 Reasons to Bullet Journal + A Peek At My July Spreads

I love bullet journaling.

A crucial step in my plan to taking over the world is helping everyone start a bullet journal. Okay, not really…but for real, I love them a lot. 😉 They’re creative, they’re helpful, they’re so fun, and I bet the world would be a happier place if there were more bullet journals in it.

Why I Still Love Dystopians + A Dystopian Review (!!)

Confession time. I still love dystopian books.

I made that sound so dramatic, but for some reason I feel like dystopian books are so underrated these days. These days meaning in 2018. I mean, I can’t think of a dystopian book that I’ve heard people talking about that was published recently. And that makes me sad, because the thing is, I love dystopian.

Today I’m going to be sharing reasons I’m still obsessed with dystopian novels (even though the glory days of The Hunger Games are mostly over *tear*) and also be doing a very exciting review of a dystopian short story I was given the opportunity to read recently. I’m excited, so let’s jump right in!Read More »

The Hogwarts Tag // ft. Much Love for Harry Potter

In case you didn’t know, I am obsessed with Harry Potter.

The books? I’ve read them so many times I’ve lost count. The movies? I can practically quote them. But a Harry Potter tag? I have yet to do one.

Although I wasn’t technically tagged for this, I’ve seen it floating around (specifically on Lily’s lovely blog), and I just had to participate. Because guys, it’s a Hogwarts tag. 😉 Maybe after I do this I’ll finally get my acceptance letter?

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag 2018 // Favorites, Anticipated Reads, + More

I’m officially freaking out because it’s June.

How can it already be June? 2018 doesn’t have my permission to go by this fast. Due to my state of panic at this rapidly passing year, it’s only fitting that I participate in the Mid-Year Book Freak Out tag. 😉

Even though I haven’t read at all much this year, I still wanted to take part in this fun tag. That way I’ll be able to look back at the end of the year and see what I was reading way back in June! Maybe by then I won’t be 9 books behind on my Goodreads challenge.

I don’t do reviews a lot, but I had to make the exception for this book. It deserves a full review that properly displays just how much I loved it. Prepare yourself for lots of raving.

Library Haul! // ft. contemporaries & tbr pile books

It’s a beautiful day when I go to the library.

So that makes yesterday a beautiful day, because I was able to go to the library and check out free books. 😉 I ended up getting a lot of contemporaries and books that have been on my TBR for a while, so I wanted to share them with you all today!

IMG_6317 (1)

I don’t go to the library often though I do keep my books until they’re overdue, so when I do, it’s cause for celebration (and a blog post about them).

I may be slightly screaming in this post because I’m just honestly so excited to read all these?? And if you’ve read them, or if you want to read them, please do join in on all the screaming in the comments, I’d love to fangirl with you.

5 Easy & Simple Ways to Spend Time With God Daily

As a Christian, one of my greatest struggles is spending time with God every day.

To me, one of the best parts about being a Christian is that you can spend time with God anytime you want. There’s a constant connection between you and heaven. Isn’t that amazing? Yet, sometimes I don’t take advantage of it.
