How To Create the Perfect Reading Mood

How to Create the Perfect Reading Mood

What’s this?? My very first discussion post? I’m so excited you guys! I hope you enjoy the topic, and big thanks to my bestie Jordyn @ Jordz the Bibliophile for helping me decide on it. Also, you may notice I finally came up with a post divider, hopefully it looks alright!

Now what exactly is the perfect reading mood? For me, it’s being in a mindset where I’m relaxed, focused, and excited to read as much as possible! But there are many factors that affect whether or not I’m in the right environment to obtain that mood. So, here’s a list that details exactly what I do when I sit down to read. Of course, not everything will apply to everyone – we’re all different people with different habits! But this is what I think creates the Perfect Reading Mood.

February Wrap-Up

February Wrap-Up Header

Once again, my monthly wrap-up post is like 1000 days late, but my life is just crazy, so I hope you guys get used to reading these posts about a week after the new month has started. I don’t know, maybe you’ll like it even better that way..? stop kidding yourself Mia

Also I apologize for how ugly the post header is, but I had zero time to attempt to make something nice, so please excuse my lack of design skills and patience.

Overall, February was pretty bad – for my reading/blogging/book stuff in general. Life-wise, it was meh. I’ll give you guys a little more detail on just why I’ve been so busy lately, but that’s later in the post. Mostly I’m gonna chalk up my complete failure to the fact that February is the shortest month. Two or three more days obviously would’ve changed everything, right?? Right. Glad we’re on the same page.

Owlcrate Unboxing: January “Classic Remix”

Owlcrate Unboxing- January -Classic Remix-

Hello my bookworm friends! Today I’m doing an unboxing of the January Owlcrate! I’m assuming everyone that purchased a box has seen it already (since Owlcrate has already sent out their February box), so I don’t think spoilers are an issue. But if you’re by chance still waiting for a January box, then I don’t recommend reading this post! 😅

Last month’s theme was “Classic Remix,” so it was all about modern reinventions of classic literature. Before purchasing it, I already had a good idea of what the book was, and I was definitely thrilled to see it included in this box! In addition to a beautiful hardcover book, there were all sorts of gorgeous items that I was really satisfied with.

Disclaimer: I’m not a rep for Owlcrate or a reviewer, so all my thoughts are those of an average consumer.

Here we go!

Top Ten Tuesday: Steamy Romances

HELLO THERE (1)

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY MY FRIENDS! I’m currently sending you all loads of hearts, flowers, and hugs (because you’re my real valentines)!

I hope you’ve had a great day today, even if you don’t celebrate. I’m currently stuffed from the insane amount of treats and candy I had.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I decided to participate in my first Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Since I’ve never done one of these before, you’ll have to hang with me as I figure stuff out.

The prompt for this week was just anything romance related, so I decided to feature some of my favorite “steamy” romances (which I’ve kind of been thinking a lot about lately, for some random reason). Romance is different for everyone, but here’s what I think of when a romance is “steamy”:

January Wrap-Up

HELLO THERE

Hello friends, and welcome to my first ever monthly wrap-up! I’ve done these before over on my bookstagram, but never as a full blog post, and I’m super excited to finally have a place where I can reflect on everything that’s happened in the past month. I know every blogger does their wrap-up posts a little differently, but I decided to include both a list of all the books I read in January, and all the books that I hauled (take a guess at which list is longer). I would have liked to post this earlier, but (as you’ll see later in the post) my life has been quite insane lately.
