Alright, let’s jump right into the review!

Wonder Week Read-a-Thon: March 18th – 25th

It’s back!

Wonder Week is back and better than ever (hopefully!). The last Wonder Week was sort of a fail, and I really hate how everything went down during that read-a-thon, so this time we’re going to make it amazing.

If you don’t know what Wonder Week is, it’s a read-a-thon I came up with last year! There is a post about it here explaining all the details and important bits that you need to know.

February Wrap Up

Hello everyone!

Another month gone so quickly – I can’t believe how fast the year is going.

Small update for school: I only have about 2 weeks of sit in classes left and will be heading to one of my final practicums by the end of March – which I’m so excited about. Soon I’ll be done my program and be working as a nurse! I cannot wait.

Anyways, this post is going to be my February Wrap Up!

This month has been a pretty great reading month – I was able to read 8 books this month, which is amazing for me. Especially with how busy I’ve been this month!

I’m just going to jump right into the wrap up now!

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Hello everyone!

I am back again with another book review, and I’m confused about this one. I had an amazing time reading Shadow and Bone (you can read my review here) and it had me very excited to read the next novel in this series, unfortunately I was a bit underwhelmed with this one. I’ll get more into detail down below.

Let’s get into it!

Romantic Comedies I’m Trash For

Hello again everyone!

Today I’m bringing to you all a Valentine’s themed post – because who doesn’t love love!

I know a lot of people may not be dating during Valentine’s Day, and that is totally fine. You don’t need a significant other to celebrate the holiday of love. Love is for everyone, share it with your friends, family, and even strangers!

I am an avid Rom-Com watcher. I am total trash for all movies that are sappy and filled with cheesy dialogue.

Therefore, I bring to you all a list of Romantic Comedies I’m Trash For!

Enjoy!

How To: Get Out of a Reading Slump

Hello everyone.

As we all know, I have been caught up in a horrible reading slump that has taken over my life. It makes me feel horrible not reading books as much as I used to, and I’m really sad that it’s not completely gone yet.

This post is going to be filled with ways that I have tried to help me get rid of my reading slump. Some have been more helpful than others, but all are attempts that I have made.

I hope you all enjoy this post, and if you’re in a reading slump I wish you all the best to beat it!


1. Watch BookTube Videos

This is an obvious choice for me. I always have the strongest urge to buy a book or read a book after someone has talked about it and how much they enjoyed it.

Hearing someone talk about a book that you own and haven’t read yet brings upon the strongest urge to pick that book up and find out why they enjoyed the book.


2. Go to a bookstore

This also seems like a very obvious choice for me.

Going to bookstores always makes me have the strongest urge to read all the books that I see and have. In addition to getting the urge to read, going to bookstores also increases my likelihood to buy a new book, and that increases the likelihood that I will read said book.


3. Re-read a favourite

Re-reading one of my favourite books always makes me want to read more, especially when it’s a series and you like all the other books in the series as well.

I tried this earlier on with When Breathe Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, and it didn’t really work. I think this is because this novel is a non-fiction and a little too intense for me to read when in a reading slump, but I would definitely recommend something like Harry Potter or something along those lines to help you get back into the groove of things.


4. Listen to an audiobook

This is a nice way to get a slight break from reading physical novels, but still be reading something. I personally have not done this because I’m currently enjoying listening to podcast’s on my drive, but I do think that this would be a great substitute for reading.


5. If you’re not feeling it, don’t do it.

This last one, I think, is the most important tip for anyone who is in a reading slump.

If you do not feel like reading. Don’t force yourself to do it.

All this will do is make you, first, hate the book you’re reading, and second, make your reading slump even worse.

If you’re not interested in picking up a book, concentrate on what you are interested in doing and don’t make yourself feel guilty (I do it all the time) for not reading all the books on your TBR.


That is about all I currently have for tips on getting out of a reading slump. I hope you guys enjoyed.

I’d also like to say thanks to all of my followers for being so patient with me as I suffer through this reading (and writing) slump, I promise I’m getting out of it!!

Thanks so much for reading, don’t forget to follow my blog as well as all my other social media accounts linked in the side bar.

Until next time,

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Hi guys!

Today I have a review to bring you, that I’m quite excited to write. Recently I’ve been in a bit of a book slump and I’ve had a hard time finding time to sit down and read instead of watch Netflix 24/7. This unfortunately hasn’t changed much, but I did have a great time reading this book and finished it in two sittings – which I think is pretty good for where I’m at right now.

This is a great novel for when you’re in a reading slump because it moves so fast, so I’m very glad I decided to pick this one up.
