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.

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!

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.

Although we all know I won’t read all of these?? And we also know that I’ll read other books too, because that’s just the mood reader inside of me. 😉 Still, I’m excited to set a few reading goals for the months ahead.

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.

There are the greats- Harry Potter, anyone? The Book Thief? In my opinion, those movies really lived up to the books. (Though the books are always better. 😉 ) And then there are the failures. cough*percy jackson*cough.

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!

5 Books That Should be Classics Someday

Classics are classic. Everyone recognizes their name, they’ve been loved for years, and they’ll be loved for years to come. They’re iconic.

I can’t help but wonder, what are the classics of the future? In 2117, what books will still be well-known? I can’t see ahead, or influence what the next generation of classics will be, but I thought it would be interesting to list a few books that I personally believe should be loved for years to come.

Writing is hard.

That’s the truth. Though it may be fun, it may be rewarding, you may love it more than you love anything else, it’s still really, really hard.

Then there are the thoughts that creep into your head- is my writing really any good? is it possible that I could ever even be published? And that’s just the beginning! When it comes to writing, I’ll take all the help I can get.
