Week Sixteen: Goals and National Poetry Month Day 15

This week is going to be busy as hell, so my goals this week aren’t going to be terribly extensive. In fact, my only goal is to finish Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. The copy I have right now is borrowed from my friend so I need to return it as soon as possible. Speaking of borrowed books, […]

Additional Challenge….maybe?

As you all know by now, I have an account on Goodreads. I was scrolling through almost everything I could click on while avoiding my mountainous homework load, and I stumbled across a challenge called “A-Z Title Challenge”. Pretty much, you read a book that starts with each letter of the alphabet (‘a’, ‘an’, ‘the’ […]

Day 26

Something really wonky must have happened when I last posted my daily challenge. Anyway, I apologize with yet another double post. “A book that changed your opinion about something.” The first book that came to mind was Looking for Alaska by John Green. I finished this book last week, but I am still in awe […]

Week Five: Results (and Goals, since that post is MIA!?)

I was scrolling through my blog when it occurred to me that my Week Five: Goals post is missing! I’m sure I wrote it, but I don’t know where it ran off to! So here’s a quick summary of what I had hoped to do this week: Read Looking for Alaska by John Green. SUCCESS! I have […]

Week Four: Results

The goal for this week was to finish Looking for Alaska and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Readers, this week is a disappointing one. I have not yet finished either book due to the influx of reading assignments for my courses. However, I am close to finishing Alaska, so I am hoping that I […]

Day 14

“Favorite book of your favorite writer.” I guess since I wrote a list, I’ll write one for each? JK Rowling: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Edgar Allan Poe: “Annabel Lee” (it’s not a book, but whatever) Sylvia Plath: The Bell Jar and “Blackberrying” Emily Dickinson: “Because I could not stop for Death” John […]

Day 13

“Your favorite writer.” I have a lot, not surprisingly. Let’s see… J.K. Rowling, Edgar Allan Poe, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, John Green, Alice Walker, Will Shakespeare, hahaha there are a lot. This post is also very short, but there’s not much to it. Let me know your answer to the question in the comments! 🙂

Week Four: Goals (REALLY LATE, I’m sorry!)

I AM SO SORRY THIS POST WAS DELAYED. On a brighter note, I finally moved back into my dorm and have started my spring semester! I’m so excited! I absolutely love college; it’s like how Harry feels about Hogwarts…except I’d totally feel more passionate about Hogwarts than my college if I went there…but whatever. So! […]

Week Three: Results

This week my only goal was to finish The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Mission: COMPLETE. My Goodreads review: Five stars. This book was recommended to me by my mother. I pushed it off for a while, but once I started reading it, I could not put it down! I read straight through 200 pages in three hours […]

Week Two: Results

Several things happened this past week that hindered me from reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. 1. I got horribly sick. Honestly, my chest felt like it had imploded. My attention span was destroyed, so it was intensely difficult to get through the thick words of Larsson’s work. 2. MY SIGNED AND HANKLERFISHED COPY […]
