So this is something that’s gonna be hard for me to do but it’s also something I need to do: I’m going on a hiatus. There are a lot of reasons why I need to do this but the biggest factor is that I’ve been so busy and stressed with work lately that it’s not giving me a lot of time to even read a book these days, and when I do I’m not exactly motivated to do my weekly postings. I remember reading somewhere that if you feel like you have to post rather than wanting to post then you’re not really blogging for the right reasons and that’s where I’m at these days. Don’t get me wrong, I love my blog and I love you guys, but I’ve lost the thrill of making new posts and it feels like I’m slipping into doing it for the wrong reasons. I’m hoping this hiatus will help me get back on my feet here and will remind me why I love blogging so much.

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! So, I just went to the bookstore a couple hours ago, as one typically does on a Tuesday night, and I ended up buying more books than I intended because someone told me about a book I should read so obviously I bought it. That got me thinking and gave me a bit of inspiration for today’s list. Now I know the title seems a bit misleading so I should probably clarify that when I say “forced” I mean it in a relatively joking matter. It’s more like how someone really talked up a book to be and because of that I ended up adding it to my list. I probably wouldn’t have read these books if I hadn’t been forced into it so it’s all good.
Here is today’s Top Five Tuesday: Books I’ve Been Forced Into Reading!
Today’s Moodboard Monday is dedicated to The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan, which is the third book in her Game On series. I’ve been thinking about this book a lot and we all know that’s never a good thing because it makes me want to reread it. I should stop thinking about it. But I can’t. It’s so good and such a wonderfully cute story.
Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a good day today. So, if you haven’t noticed yet, I may or may not have a thing for princes. Love, love, love ’em. And I’ve been thinking a lot about princes and princesses lately partially due to the new Wreck It Ralph 2 trailer (you know that scene with all the princesses???? Cannot wait!!!) and also partially due to how it looks like a lot of the books I intend to read in the upcoming month will feature royalty in one way or another so I felt a bit inspired for today’s Top Five. I also could’ve grouped both my YA and NA princes together but I thought solely YA would be quite sufficient. And there’s a lot more to choose from in that pool. This is gonna be a fun time.
Today’s Moodboard Monday is dedicated to yet another book I’m surprised I haven’t done yet but is truly a masterpiece, Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh! I not only love that this book is a Mulan retelling but I really love the fact that Ahdieh found so many ways to insert references from the Disney movie (especially the songs); it made me so giddy. Oh, and this perfect timing too because the sequel in this duology comes out TOMORROW! I cannot wait to read it and find out how this is all going to end.
Hello friends and happy Thursday! I cannot believe we’re already at the end of May when I could’ve sworn that it just started like two weeks ago. This is pure insanity. The last few months haven’t been the best reading wise for me and I’d been kind of disappointed in myself but I promised that I’d turn things around and I think this was finally my month! I was still as busy as I normally am but I think I was picking up books that worked for me and it kept me going. My Reading Challenge still might be a mess but I’m not worrying about that now. I got nothing but good vibes coming out of May.
Hello friends and happy Tuesday! Well, that’s quite the long title isn’t it? But it literally says it all. I don’t know how many of you are like me and constantly want to read the same books over and over again but it’s a serious problem for me. Last year I did a lot of rereading, ended up rereading 18 books in total. I’m trying to be better this year but it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Every time I finish a new book and I try to figure out what to read next I’m like “ok so what can I reread now?” And I’m always going back to the same books so when I say it’s a problem I really mean it. So I figured that I should share my massive problem with all of you now.
Here is today’s Top Five Tuesday: Books I Need To Stop Rereading But Can’t
Hello friends and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good day.
Today’s Moodboard Monday is dedicated to what may or may not become my favourite new release of 2018, though it’s still super early, To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo! I fell so deeply in love with this book and a lot of it has to do with it being a retelling of my favourite fairytale but it’s also such a great book on its own. Ugh, I just love it so much I can barely contain myself.
Hello friends and happy Sunday! I just realized this weekend that it’s the first anniversary of me making this blog! I cannot believe I’ve had this blog for a whole year already. It’s insane. I’ve had a lot of fun in my first year of blogging and getting to know a lot of you all through my posts. I feel like I’ve been a bit quiet and burnt out lately but hopefully I can get my schedule back on track soon and get back to my usual shenanigans. And I just want to say a BIG thank you to all the blogs that have followed me so far and have put up with me for this first year and you’ve all made my blogging experience so amazing. *blows kiss*
Here are some of my favourite posts from this first year:
Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.
The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?
