Welcome Our Newest Blogger, Leo!

Welcome Our Newest Blogger, Leo!

Life 7

  As Leo mentions below in the post, we’ve been planning on him joining the team for a really long time… so if you think I’m bad with procrastinating, well, then there’s Leo : P Leo is one of my friends from high school and college, and Caylin and I are super excited to welcome him onto the blog! One thing I’ve been thinking about lately is why reading is so important, and I think I’ve come somewhat to a conclusion that the… Read more »

The Catfé Lounge: An Alternative Cat Shelter

The Catfé Lounge: An Alternative Cat Shelter

Life 3

Last month just before finals began, Caylin drove me and our friend Marcy to a place called the The Catfé Lounge in a city about a half hour away from our campus and it was WONDERFUL. Not only was it a great way to take a break from school for a couple hours before the stress of studying for finals set in, but it was also a brilliant way to spend time with furry, adorable cats and have a chance to support a… Read more »

Updates: WordPress Migration and College Life

Updates: WordPress Migration and College Life

Life 2

Surprise, Surprise Every couple of months I tend to do something wrong that results in me breaking my blog, to put it simply, and I’m sure no one is surprised that I’ve done it once again. For anyone familiar with website hosting, you probably know how expensive it can get, and if you’re not familiar with it: it’s about $150 per year. Which was not really all that affordable for me, a college student who only blogs as a hobby. So I… Read more »

July: I’ve Been a Busy Bee, Let’s Catch Up

Life 4

WHAT EVEN HAPPENED TO JULY. I looked at the calendar today and noticed that it was August 4th (as I’m writing anyway), and HOW?! July was absolutely insane. I have much to tell. More than you probably care to read about. BUT here goes. LIFE STUFF IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, I AM OBSESSED WITH MY FISH It has truly become a hobby and I love them as if they’re my children. BUT ON TO THE GOOD NEWS, I woke up two weeks… Read more »

My Blog Broke and Other Fun Happenings

My Blog Broke and Other Fun Happenings

Life 10

So my blog sort of broke. It kind of just had a brain fart or something. It just decided to stop functioning for some reason. Well a part of it did, anyway. I don’t know. The other day I noticed I wasn’t getting any email notifications from my blog, like for comments or for new subscribers or anything like that (including the emails for lost passwords – which is scary). So I did some researching on google and after several hours found that my… Read more »

Oh No! I’ve Forgotten How to Blog

Oh No! I’ve Forgotten How to Blog

Life 8

After reading Jessi’s post on Novel Heartbeat, read it here, about why being inactive sucks and about how hard it is to get back into blogging, I decided to talk about how I’ve been feeling in regards to blogging, too. Are reviews boring? For starters, since I’ve been trying to blog again, all I’ve posted is reviews and it doesn’t feel like enough. Which is crazy. This is, after all, a book blog and I love that. I don’t want… Read more »

Spring Brings an End to our Freshman Year of College

Spring Brings an End to our Freshman Year of College

Life, Literature 2

So Caylin and I totally disappeared off the face of the earth… But… we’re back now and things are going to be better than ever. I’ll tell you why: First of all, we just finished up our finals and ended our freshman year of college. Why does that matter? Well, we’re on summer break until next September and we’ll have so much more time to read and blog, and most of all, actually do things with our lives. College + poor time management skills = failure…. Read more »

Caylin and I would like to wish you all a fabulous New Year! We hope 2016 is a hell of lot better than 2015! 2015 was hard. That’s not to say it was all bad, but… eh. We did get some pretty fantastic new music, books, and TV shows, though. Check below to see some of my favorite things from 2015, and feel free to leave some of your favorite 2015 debuts in the comments! Favorite 2015 Books I explored poetry a… Read more »

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Life 2

So I have a funny or really sad story to tell you all. The other day I was watching The Walking Dead on AMC, and of course the channel was advertising their Fear Feast movie event. In the advertisement, they showed a few flashes from the movie Halloween (1978).  At that point I had already been wanting to watch this movie because it’s one of my favorite movies to watch this season, and I managed to impulse-buy three movies from this… Read more »

Let’s Catch Up: College and Halloween Fun!

Let’s Catch Up: College and Halloween Fun!

Life 2

Hello, everyone! I’m going to be posting regularly again, although I am quite busy so it might not be as frequent as I’d like, which I hinted at it the other day when I introduced Caylin to the blog. If you missed our last post, be sure to head over and say hi to the newest blogger here at Strung Out On Books. Life has been pretty intense lately with classes and work and homework ahhhh but regardless of that I’ve been… Read more »
