Headed (Further) Down South to New Orleans


It's been a while since I've last filmed anything. To be honest, being behind a camera freaks me out but not as much as being in front of one! I prefer to be to the right of the camera, out of frame, with a script in hand feeding people their lines.

March Discoveries



March was a whirlwind that can only be summed up as the month that I become older. I mean literally; I turned 23.

While I was busy maturing and growing wiser - Ha! I wish- I realized that I want to incorporate more non-book related posts on this site. I really like writing weekly blog posts, and eventually, I'd like to write posts twice a week. However, I'm not a fast reader so it can difficult to come up with content solely about books once a week. I hope you don't mind. (:

Keep reading if you want to see the 4 (non-book related) things I discovered in March!

The Ultimate Book Tag: 25 Bookish Questions



I'm doing something a little different in today's post!

I've been doing the blogging thing for about six months now! Insane. I know! But I realized that I never did a proper introduction of myself. You might've even noticed that I don't really have an About Me page. That page has been blank a work in progress since I started this blog. I hate talking/writing about myself.  I even have sweaty palms from writing this introduction!

But if we're going to be internet pals, then it's important for us to get to know each other!

I saw this tag over on Happy Indulgence Books, and it sounded like a fun way for me to tell you more about myself.

Spring's TBR List


Did you notice the change in the title? I felt like the word "lineup" no longer went with the vibe that I wanted this series to have. It sounded too formal. Too constricting. Too boring? I almost felt like I was back in school where I was forced to read certain books.

So goodbye lineup and hello TBR list: a much more relaxed sounding way of letting you know which books I'm interested in reading this spring.

I've got two things in mind for this spring: exploring the old and discovering the new.

Let's breakdown those two catergories, shall we?

The Winter Round-up



It feels weird writing this post that's supposedly wrapping up winter when it's currently 30 degrees outside, and I'm wrapped up in a blanket with thick fuzzy socks on. Maybe Mother Nature is punishing me for publishing this post before winter is officially over. Look, I'm really sorry Mother Nature, but I'm ready for it to spring! For one, my birthday is in spring! And two, the days will be longer + warmer, which means I can have my coffee and read my book outside while enjoying the morning light. Spring needs to get here ASAP!

Let's Talk Coming of Age Novels


Sorry for the 4-week silent treatment. I decided to go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras at the last minute, so there was a lot of scrambling to get everything packed and not a lot of time to write. Plus, when I got back, I needed about a week to recover.

If any of my readers live in New Orleans, I don't know how you do it! My sister and I stayed with me aunt and uncle down there, and even with their bad knees, they were running circles around us!


Anyways, it's nice to be back in North Carolina writing posts!

The Sunday Review: Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella


I don't know if I was hit on the head on January 1st by a radioactive something or other that ended up giving me super reading powers because I've finished 5 books so far this year! Considering I only read 9 books total last year, I think 5 books is damn impressive, which is why I think that I might secretly be a superhero.
I promise to only use my powers for good like reading books so that I can do a Sunday Review. Wait a minute! Don't most superheroes work for a newspaper? Superman. Spiderman. Probably some other man. And I created The Sunday Review as a play off of The Sunday Times, which means...

Yep, I must be a superhero.

Before I let my new found powers go to my head, let's jump into today's topic!
