THE ART OF ‘THE DNF’| WHOA – A CASSIE CLARE BOOK I DIDN’T FINISH X2(!!?)

WHY CASSANDRA CLARE BOOKS SHOULD BE READ BY ALL BOOKWORMS

WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE YOUR BLOG MORE | 6 STEPS & SELF PRAISE.

I actually blogged less than usual I think??? Or at least it feels that I blogged less anyway. Ughhh which leads me onto my next point. . .

I don’t know how much I willl be able to blog in a few weeks. So if you don’t hear from more for a week, no I haven’t fallen into a pit of hungry hyenas, or been crushed by my TBR pile, or just my bookcase in general, I’m just suffocating under all this work from school. I might be able to have 1 post per week, MAYBE TWO?? I’m really not sure.

OMG. OMG. OMG. RENEGADES. RENEGADES. RENEGADES.

  1. I do consider all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for novices. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

  5. Literally the first thing I thought when I saw some of your bookshelf was DO A BOOKSHELF TOURRRR and then I thought about how much I want a bigger bookshelf😂😂
    I feel like book bloggers, especially you and Ilsa do the best wrap-ups I just enjoy them so much!!

  6. Also about contacting publishers! that’s pretty amazing! it takes guts to send an email to a publisher asking to review physical books!
    i contacted a dozen of them! but only 2 responded with a ” YES PLEASE SEND US YOUR ADDRESS ”
    my dream is to review for Penguin and Harper, ! uh DREAMMMMM! i hope i can make it true.

  7. Eliza and Starfish are some of the BEST YA contemporaries, in my opinion!! And aaagh happy belated birthday! And congrats on 1K! You’ve accomplished so much this month hahaha. Dude yes I’m so excited about Cait’s new book!! We all knew it would happen (AND SO DID SHE). And omg yes I’m getting so much worse at commenting on posts???

    Hope you have a great November!! ❤

      1. I’ve read all the Marie Lu books because I love and adore her!! (Ok except the last book in the young elites but that’s mostly because I forget it exists most of the time upss). And omg I just now realised you kinda share a name with her WHICH IS SO COOL it’s like you’re a bestselling author undercover. Dun dun duuuun.
        And I have to wait for my next bookhaul to buy loads of books at once. Inconvenient? Yes. Frustrating? Definitely. I did become a ninja when it comes to avoiding spoilers though so I gues suffering comes with some skills.
