The Thoughts of a Bookworm After Her First Year of College (and an Absurdly Long Hiatus)

More and more, it feels like every post I write on here starts with an apology for being gone. While I definitely owe you guys that, I have to be honest and say that I thought more than once about letting this blog go all together. The truth is, between school, friends, writing (some updates on that later on!), bookstagramming, tweeting, and just plain old reading, I just flat out don’t have time to blog. But it breaks my heart, cause I honestly love blogging more than any other platform.

So all of that being said, I decided to write this post to a) tell you guys what I’ve been up to, and b) let you know what the heck I plan to do with this blog, which I hope you’ll stick with me for!

End of the Year TBR (Yes, I’m Really Trying to Meet that Reading Challenge)

Copy of YALLFest 2018 Wrap-Up

Hellooo friends! I’m getting tired of having to start every post with an apology and explanation for why I haven’t been posting, but we’ll just chalk it up to the fact that college – and 2018 as a whole – has been reeeal crappy to me. Hopefully in the new year, I can get all the technical issues worked out with this blog and post more frequently, because I really miss interacting with you all!

Today, I’m here to present to you the ultimate race against time. A mad dash against the laws of bookish physics. I, the biggest mess of a book blogger and bookstagrammer in history, am actually attempting to stick to a TBR to meet my Goodreads goal.

And, as of right now, I’m actually sticking to it.

I know, start knocking on all the wood in your house and perform your spiritualist rituals, because I feel like even writing that sentence out has jinxed me and will make it all go away. But my goal for the year was to read 45 books, and I’m currently on book number 37.

Soooo, it’s not impossible. I can feel it, just out of reach. I have to read 9 books in exactly 14 days, or two weeks. So here’s the list of books I have tentatively planned out to read! Just click on the covers to be taken to their Goodreads pages.

YALLFest 2018 Wrap-Up

Hi friends! I hope you’ve all been reading great books and enjoying the fall season, I know that Christmas lights and sleigh-bell songs can’t come soon enough for me. This past weekend I got a much-needed break from school during a short trip to Charleston for my third year in a row at the one-and-only YALLFest!

For once, I actually got some (decent) photos and have the opportunity to write about it, so I figured I’d share some of the highlights from my trip along with a few tips and tricks for those that are considering going next year or to another big book event!
