My #Pondathon Wrap-Up

This post is coming to you a little later than I hoped for, but we can roll with it. Pondathon was so much fun, and it was a great way to keep reading in my schedule (take that school projects and exams!).

My Top 5 Favorite YA Couples

*Note: This post MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS and cause smiling, squealing, and the need to (re)read YA books.*

Happy Valentine’s Day!

As a single, book loving fangirl, there is no better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a book, dessert, and friends. Bonus points if the dessert includes chocolate and the book has a ship that you just can’t jump off.

There are so many book romances that I have fallen in love with over the years, but I tried my best to narrow down my favorites. I usually have a hard time with posts like this because I find it unfair to the characters I haven’t met yet. My list is also totally biased to the fantasy genre since I tend to read more fantasy books.

My #Pondathon Adventure Begins!

Pondathon: The Quiet Pond's story-driven readathon. Image: Two swords with vines wrapped around it frame the words 'Pondathon', with three little forest sprites sitting on top. One forest sprite has a leaf on its head, the middle has twigs for horns, and the right has a mushroom on its head.

This is probably the most adorable readathon I have ever seen!

With my college classes back in session, finding time to read has been tough. I want to continue reading the books I love without it becoming extra pressure or another to-do list item. Pondathon is my solution to that. It’s fun, easy, and a great motivator to help keep reading in my schedule.

Five Non-Scary YA Halloween Reads

Halloween is coming!

And if you are anything like me, you tend to steer clear of the horror side of Halloween. Don’t get me wrong! I absolutely love vampires, werewolves, and witches…just not to the point of losing sleep because a shadow – shaped slightly like the figure of a person – is now moving across my bedroom and reminds me of the killer or monster that I just read about (or watched on tv). Luckily, there are still lots of Halloween-worthy reads that are perfect for the season while not diving too far into the horror/thriller genre.
