5 Weeks, 5 Tomes Challenge

So, apparently there is a thing on Booktube (YouTube for books) called Tome Topple. It takes place from Nov. 16th to Nov. 29th. For more information, here's a link to the original video. Now, I love the idea of this challenge of reading only books over 500 pages. However, I didn't like the time limit … Continue reading 5 Weeks, 5 Tomes Challenge

Reasons Why I’m Quitting NaNoWriMo

So...I've been doing a lot of thinking this month. Both about the book I'm writing this year and my past experiences with NaNo, and I have come to the logical conclusion that NaNoWriMo isn't for me. Here are the four reasons why. 1. Inability To Process I am an introspective person. I think...a lot. It's … Continue reading Reasons Why I’m Quitting NaNoWriMo

Movie Review: Bel Canto (2018)

I just got the book this movie is based on at the library and I thought I should watch/read both around the same time. I saw a trailer for this movie earlier this year, and it really intrigued me. I’ve also read some pretty positive reviews of the book from fellow bloggers. But, in this … Continue reading Movie Review: Bel Canto (2018)

NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 4 Update

We are four days into NaNoWriMo. Gosh, this month I seem to be so undisciplined when it comes to writing. I'll write a lot one day, and just skip writing the next day. I'm also not calculating how many words I should be writing each day. Math and me just do not care for each … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 4 Update

Reading Wrap-up October, 2018

I can't believe Spooktober has ended, and NaNoWriMo is in full swing. I usually do this wrap-up at the end of the month, but I was just too busy with other posts. So you're getting it a few days late, but as I always say, better late than never. This last month I read five … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up October, 2018
