5 Bookshelves I’ve Been Eyeing

Posted by 8 Comments

When I am daydreaming, I like to get ahead of myself and imagine the kind of bookshelves I’d buy if I have money and didn’t just want to store my books but rather showcase them.

1. The Read Your Bookcase bookshelves

I’ve been eyeing these bookcases for a time now and I am not entirely sure whether or not I think they are aesthetically pleasing, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want it.

2. This bookcase that is shaped like a tree

I’m a minimalist kind of gal (even though I own like 400 fucking books) and this bookshelf just looks so relaxing and clean.

3. Honeycomb Shelves

THEY ARE SO ADORABLE AND SO //different.// I don’t know if they could fit all my books but that doesn’t even matter.

4. Spiral Bookshelf



I believe this was someone’s DIY project and no one actually sells this but also, is it not fucking gorgeous??

Any bookshelves here catch your eye? Any others you’ve been eyeing??

Heyyy, I am still here doing these roundups. I mean, it is only February and I still have like 10 more months to give up but I haven’t yet! These roundups tend to focus on YA and MG books because those are easiest to keep track of but I do try to include romances because I also read those and I want to make the list as thorough as possible. If I miss a book, or include one that shouldn’t be on here, let me know!!!

Any of these on your TBR? What are you most looking forward to diving into??

DON’T @ ME. I AM 2000s GARBAGE and to be honest, my top 20 is always shifting depending on my mood. Anyway, I am just gonna embrace my identity and call it a day.

The Playlist The Songs 1. All Star by Smash Mouth

This song played at every single one of my school assemblies and I still never got tired of it because HEY NOW, YOURE AN ALL STAR.

2. Hey Ya! by OutKast 3. Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat tbh and it makes me feel better.

4. Dirty Little Secret by The All-American Rejects


5. The Middle by Jimmy Eat World

6 Libraries to Visit Before You Die

6 Libraries to Visit Before You Die

Posted by on 02/22/2018 • 10 Comments

1. Qarawiyyin Library (Morocco)

One of the worlds oldest libraries, it was founded by a woman in the ninth century and hosts some of the rarest texts known to us. It was also restored by a woman which makes it doubly as cool.

2. Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Egypt)

I think as bookworms, we can all agree we would lose our shit if the remains of the Ancient Library of Alexandria were found but in the mean time, this awesome library that they build to commemorate it is noteworthy. It was also a $220 million project so…

3. Library of Congress (United States)

I know its kind of cliche to have this library on this list but I truly think that the Library of Congress is a bucket-list item and absolutely stunning.

4. Stadtbibliothek…

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! And happy Wednesday if you don’t give a flying fart about Valentine’s Day. I don’t really care one way or another but I always find that Valentine’s Day is a great day to curl up with a romance and just treat yourself to something fun! Like most people, I have my favorite tropes and I definitely can be sold on many a novel if the trope is a thing I like! So. Today. I’ve put together a mini guide on reading some romance books by the trope featuring some of my fav tropes and other tropes I know people like. I spent a LOT of time putting this guide together (probably like 10 hours all together?) so I REALLY do hope you’ll enjoy it! I also…

15 Books for New Adults

15 Books for New Adults

Posted by on 02/08/2018 • 9 Comments

Recent discussions in this community have been about how we don’t have enough books out there that reflects the experience of the average new-adult person. There are some facets of this discussion I disagree with (which might be a post for another day) but, I think we can all agree the more the better. Everyone deserves to have their experiences reflected in the books they read. So, today, I’ve compiled a list of 15 books with characters who are either in college or are college-aged. Some of these were marketed as YA and some as cross-over. Some of these just came out and others have been out for a while.

1. Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

Let’s Talk About Love pretty much has it all. Anxiety about choosing…

Diverse Books Out January 2018

Last year, I attempted to do a monthly round up of diverse books out and somewhere along the way I stopped doing that. I am going to try to get back on the horse though because the feature was always a great way for me to discover new books as well as help you discover new books! When I curate these roundups, I try to make sure I don’t miss anything and try to make sure I don’t include anything with bad rep. Let me know if something slips by me though!

2017 Releases You Shouldn’t Miss Out On

2017 Releases You Shouldn’t Miss Out On

Posted by on 01/04/2018 • 8 Comments

It is NO LONGER 2017 but that doesn’t mean you cannot revisit the past and read some amazing books that came out last year. This list is based on what I’ve read and still isn’t entirely complete because I HAVEN’T READ SO MANY BOOKS that came out last year. I also wanted to narrow it down so as not to dump too many books on your tbr! The following is a list of some of the best books out in 2017 in my opinion. Looking for a book to make that will make you cry, or at the very least, make you FEEL? These books might have something in store for you. Just as an FYI, all of these books involve death.
