HEY. Hi. Hello!
Wow, it’s been a minute. Every time there’s a gap in between wrap-ups, I usually have to go back to the last one and find out how I formatted because I’m a forgetful person. Although to be fair, I got ahead in scheduling and then got a little lazy in blogging and now I’m bouncing back again. (And then I left posts in pending and they’re still sitting there. I’ll get around to editing and scheduling them 6 months later.)
On a side note, come join us in the Bookish Collision Discord server created by the ever so fabulous Clo from Book Dragons, who allowed me to wreak havoc while setting up. It’s smol, so here’s reassurance you won’t get lost like you would in a massive server.
This Week’s Posts
With the first ever #ReviewPit that happened last week on Twitter, my TBR cried just a little (I was good and only requested 2 books).
- Robbergirl by S.T. Gibson
- The City of Veils by S. Usher Evans
Other books that I think I got this week but will we ever remember? Nawh, I’m forgetful.
- Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell (blog tour) – I saw this on Netgalley and wanted to request it but then I saw the blog tour signups so um, yeah, here we are. You cannot say Les Miserables and not expect my ears to perk up.
- Somewhere Only We Know by Maurene Goo (Netgalley) – okay, the last time I read a K-Pop inspired book, it was a mess, and I mean it was a fucking mess. We have high hopes for this one, though!
- Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Netgalley) – It’s currently like 1am on a Saturday and I don’t remember why I requested this because my night time cold medicine is kicking in finally.
I rolled into 2019 reading a lot, but lately, I’ve been dying down a little. On the bright side, I didn’t write a review for some books, so I managed to rescue myself for an article for my internship. #BlessReadingAhead 😅
I finished The Shadow Glass and survived! Miraculously, because holy dragons, was that book a roller coaster near the end. I think I cried inside. Poor Lauren of Northern Plunder dealt with my live reactions and woke up to a bunch of emojis.
I also finished Opposite of Always and it was So. Good. I’m calling this a good reading week, don’t @ me.
Started Second Star by J.M. Sullivan and I have low-key realized this book will not be done by publication date. Oops.
Um… not as stressful as Lupe’s (she’s on hiatus currently) but it’s my last two weeks of two classes so we’ve got all those projects due. I’ve only just started on a report that’s due on Wednesday.
I’m enjoying my Commercial Photography class and dabbled a little in nature photography. Have a peek on some photos I took at Castlewood a few weeks ago:

There's always a #story to tell. 🐉 Wow, that sounded cliché. 🐉 I still have some more photos from the park last week, so I've been trying to space them out in between my irregularly regular #bookstagram program. 😌 🐉 #treesofinstagram #naturegram #naturephotography #naturelovers #natureaddict #treephotography #photography #missouri #missouri_photos #castlewoodstatepark #castlewood #stateparks #natureadventure #hiking #parkphotography #adventure #explorenature #natureofinstagram #naturephotographer #ignature #stlphotographer #stlphotography #nature_shots #tree_shotz #photonature

Is this not the beginning of a #horror story? 🤔 🐉 Things That Scare #bookworms: • Losing all their books. • Actually getting murdered by their #TBR pile. • Getting sucked into a book world they DON'T want to be in and never returning. • Waking up stuck in their least favorite character's body. 🐉 I'm usually not posting other pics outside #bookstagram but if I'm not submitting this to class (all full) I might as well use it for Instagram so I don't feel bad for running around in a park? 😂 🐉 #nature #naturephotography #photography #castlewoodstatepark #castlewood #stateparks #missouri #trees #winter #treesofinstagram #naturegram #outdoors #hiking #naturelovers #parkphotography #missouri_photos #exploring #adventure #natureadventure #captionthis
I figured if I’m not going to use this for my class assignments, then I might as well use it for Instagram in addition to my irregularly regular bookish photography.
Meanwhile, I’m starting a bullet journal version of an accomplishments journal! I’m a very forgetful person who doesn’t remember things and also very stressful, so I made it a goal of sorts to start an Accomplishments Journal in March so I can look back years later. Plus it’s a lot less hassle since I’m sorting it by month with a bunch of lists.
Also, AN EPIC READS MEETUP IS HAPPENING DURING MY SPRING BREAK. Near. Me. NEAR. ME. 😱😱😱
The above GIF is me and that’s how I and up wrap-ups. 😜
Talk to me, bookwyrms! How was your week? Is Epic Reads stopping near you? Did you participate in #ReviewPit? Have you taken photography?
