I’ve only attempted to read a handful of novelizations — Buffy the Vampire Slayer Vol. 1, Stephan’s Diaries (The Vampire Diaries), etc. — and they weren’t my cup of tea at all. Of course, I only attempted to read those because I finished watching the TV shows, and I was craving to spend more time with my beloved characters. Unfortunately, the characters in the novelizations felt … Continue reading Why I don’t read Novelizations of Popular Shows or Movies
Personally, my period is something that I talk about frequently. I mean, how could I not? It happens so often. And while I absolutely wished it was something that occurred less often (cramps are the worst), I wish it was a topic YA discussed more often because it’s a part of life. Even those that do not menstruate are affected or influenced — they are sure … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Periods in YA
Today I have for you a list of book blogging misconceptions that often lead to a myriad of people thinking that blogging is somehow just a hobby.

If you don’t know what slam poetry is, it’s a free-verse type of poetry that is intended to … Continue reading Slam Poetry
I have a love-hate relationship with typos & autocorrect, I’m not gonna lie. That sounds crazy doesn’t it? Let me explain. One: they’re hilarious. When I accidentally send a message with a typo, I crack up. Maybe I’m insane, but I just find them SO amusing. [ INSERT FUNNY EXAMPLE HERE ] I tried to find some examples through google, but honestly, they were all … Continue reading Typos & Autocorrect And Why I Hate Both (Sometimes)
I recently visited a blog and after reading some of the posts, I was curious about the author. Unfortunately, there was no ‘About’ page. I couldn’t find the author’s name ANYWHERE. Not in the posts, sidebar, or other pages. I found it a bit strange, but I can understand that some people want their privacy, so I didn’t push any farther.
