Hi friends! I was thinking over blog posts to do* and realized: a lot of people don’t read middle-grade. So I’m here to convince you to do just that! *even though I have like 2 reviews to write whoops 1: Romance ain’t always it chief! IT’S OKAY IF YOU READ ROMANCE. But far too often (in YA especially) romance overshadows all of the beautiful family/sibling/friendships we all want to see! Some recs with little-to-no romance: 2: Crazy Worlds! Often, middle-grade embraces the whimsy and magic of the worlds they’re set in, rather than being confined to a set of rules … Continue reading 5 Reasons You NEED To Read Middle-Grade!
Hi friends! I obviously haven’t gotten myself together yet to make a favorites list but here are my top 3 most surprising reads to tide y’all over! If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio | There are no words for this. If We Were Villains was the only Friday Fright-A-Thon book I got to read and I don’t regret it AT ALL.

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?
Hi friends! Today, I’m here to introduce a question that I’m sure puzzles you (because it sure puzzles me): why do I rate books so highly? As a bit of background, here is my Goodreads average for this year so far*: *but of course it’s slightly incomplete BECAUSE GOODREADS DOESN’T HAVE HALF-STARS ASDFGHJKL DRUM ROLL PLEASE…………………………………………… 4.17!

Hi friends! Today, I wanted to make a really interactive post and ask you guys some of the questions pressing down on my mind! If that makes sense! Because I can’t English! But seriously, I’ve been attempting this blogging thing for about four months now and they’ve been some of the best four months of my life.
