A Monday Discussion | Does Reading Help With Short Attention Spans?

Hi friends! I’m here to offer up a single, burning-like-Mary-Winchester-on-the-ceiling* question: does reading books help with short attention spans? *yes I know that was uncalled for Don’t get me wrong, if my computer takes 10 seconds to boot up I want to go out and buy a new one. No joke. We live in an age where social media makes us all think that we need to do something ALL THE TIME. Spare minute? Pull out the phone. It’s actually kind of hilarious, because when I read about old times and they easily wait like an hour and I’m just … Continue reading A Monday Discussion | Does Reading Help With Short Attention Spans?

A Piece of My WIP | AKA the Part I Wrote Back In June And Forgot About Until Now (because apparently I’m not good with time or projects)

Hi friends! I’m here with something a bit different and strange: some of my writing. Because it’s National Novel Writing Month, and my first year participating in Nanowrimo! I have a certain idea in my mind that I’d love to see transformed into a story, and I’ve written several different incarnations of it over the past couple of years, but literally the farthest I’ve gotten is 5 chapters. But I wanted to give you guys a peek at it, and please, please, please tell me your honest thoughts! I promise my feelings won’t be hurt (unless you say my writing … Continue reading A Piece of My WIP | AKA the Part I Wrote Back In June And Forgot About Until Now (because apparently I’m not good with time or projects)

My NaNoWriMo Goals! (and also a (cough) very official synopsis for my WIP?)

Hi friends! I’m here to outline my goals for NaNoWriMo! For those who don’t know, November is Nation Novel Writing Month. The website encourages you, along with thousands of other people, to write 50k words in one month! It’s a lot…and I can already smell my failure from a mile away. SO here are my altered goals! I want to reach 25k, and actually come up with a decent storyline! Funnily enough, I’ve actually written this 25k word Sherlock fanfiction based off of the BBC series, following Rosie Watson and Jim Moriarty’s secret son Will but it got really convoluted … Continue reading My NaNoWriMo Goals!

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy (Mini)Review!

Hi friends! I’m back with another review, and it’s another Shadowhunters review. Yes, I know, I’m obsessed. I’m so happy to have buddy read this with one of the sweetest bloggers out there, Melanie! I just want to go over my rating for each story, because there’s so many. My main, overarching critique is this: the writing was a bit disappointing. Of course, there’s others who wrote these but I just couldn’t find that spark. Okay first of all, why does Simon look drunk on this cover? They really couldn’t have given him anything better? Welcome To Shadowhunter Academy | 3.5/5 stars. This was … Continue reading Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy (Mini)Review!

Happy (Late) Book Birthday, Mammoth!!! | Ft. 5 Reasons Why You Should Pick This Up!

Hi friends! I’m here to be your conscience and tell you: READ. THIS. BOOK. The summer before her junior year, paleontology geek Natalie Page lands a coveted internship at an Ice Age dig site near Austin. Natalie, who’s also a plus-size fashion blogger, depends on the retro style she developed to shield herself from her former bullies, but vintage dresses and perfect lipstick aren’t compatible with prospecting for fossils in the Texas heat. But nothing is going to dampen Natalie’s spirit — she’s exactly where she wants to be, and she gets to work with her hero, a rock-star paleontologist … Continue reading Happy (Late) Book Birthday, Mammoth!!! | Ft. 5 Reasons Why You Should Pick This Up!
