What No One Told Me About The Book Community // things I should have known Part III

More than a year after Part I of this series, I’m back with some more observations and general *emotional realizations* about the book community. When I hit that big “Publish” button on my very first blog post, I had no idea what I was getting into. I knew Goodreads was a thing, but I didn’t know about the vast amount of books I was overlooking. I only knew about 10 other blogs, some of the most popular ones, I wasn’t aware of how many other bloggers I would eventually meet and grow friendships with. Back then, I still had so many things to learn, most of which I would have to grasp based on my own experiences!

My Summer TBR // we all know this is subject to change, but I’m trying

I’m very bad at making TBR lists, but please accept this attempt at doing so. I’m trying my best. 😌 (But there are almost 20 books on this list and I need some serious help.) I’m writing this TBR post as a list of books I might try to purchase (even through I’m supposed to be on a book ban 😅) or obtain in any other way. I also wanted to share this list because it’s particularly filled with books by Black, POC, and LGBTQ+ authors!

Discussions & Rambles // How much can a favorite series impact you, and why?

I remember the exact moment I finished Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I remember precisely where I was, how I felt, and what kinds of emotions I was going through. Reading that series over the course of a month was one of the highlights of my time as a young reader, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget how special those moments of reading were to me. With all the news about Percy Jackson being adapted by Disney+, this got me thinking… how much can a favorite series impact us, and why?

Checking Back Into The Blogging World // how is everyone? what are some things you’ve been doing? 

Hello, hello! Long time, no see, everyone! 

I hope everyone is doing okay! I know this time has really effected us in so many different ways. (I mean, it really just made me slower to finish everything… and of course, I just realized that I’ve been basically doing the same thing here as always… only posting one post per month for the past 8 months or so… but I promise, I’m trying to get better at that.)

Without any more hesitation, let me tell you a little bit about what I’ve been up to while I was gone!
