March in Review (I read books?!) + The Welcoming of April

We’re 1/4 done with 2018.

One fourth. Twenty-five percent. It’s scaring me how fast this year is going by- Easter already happened (happy late Easter, by the way), spring has sprung, and here I am with my head still in January. 😉


For me personally, March has been the best month of this year so far. In this post I’m going to talk all about it, and about April too. Let’s get started!

Happily, by Chauncey Rogers: ARC Review + Interview With the Author!

I love fairytales.

Whether they’re classic or retellings, Grimm Brothers or Hans Christian Anderson, cliche or not, I’ll read them. Fairytales are one of my greatest weaknesses. 😉 The others being anything chocolate and, you guessed it, Hamilton.

So, I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to review a fairytale retelling. Not only that, but I was also able to do an interview with the author! I can’t wait to get into this post and share with you all the amazingness of Happily.

Today I’m going to be talking about my honest feelings about writing right now. And let me warn you, this post is probably going to be ramble-y and all over the place.

Library Haul! // ft. Hyped Books & Much Pterodactyl Screeching…

Hello, everyone!

*waves into the Internet void* I’m so happy you found your way to Purely Olivia! 🙂 Today I’m going to be talking about the books I recently got at the library, many of which are books I’ve been meaning to read forever. Y’all, I’m so pumped for this post.


I haven’t been to the library forever, and I went this past weekend and got SO MANY wonderful books! All the books that have been checked out every other time I go to the library were there when I went. It was like Christmas came early, honestly.

So, in this post I’m going to be screaming about all the books I now get to read. And then hopefully we can talk about them in the comments if you’ve read them too. 😉
