Wow!! I remember being on here last year talking bout PSSA's now its PSSA time again!!! That felt like it was yesterday!!

Hi guys! I've been sick for a couple days, but I'm happy to be back! Here's a question: In a week, what are the five places you visit the most? Mine: 1. Home 2. School 3. Church 4. Swim 5. Gym... Thanks!

Hi everyone! I have set a new goal of 200 followers by the end of May. Please tell me if you followed because I want to follow back!

I am already following, but I hope you make it to your goal! 😄

I am already following but I really hope you reach your goal!

This week's quote: "The presence of anxiety is unavoidable, but the prison of anxiety is optional." ~ Max Lucado. Have an amazing rest of your day!

Thank you, I did too! I can definitely relate with this quote 😇

Quiz! 1. Your biggest bookish pet peeve. ( annoying tropes, physical things etc.) 2. Do you watch BookTube or BookTok? If so, who? 3. Book boyfriends? 4. Worst book you've ever read versus best one. 5. How do you arrange your books? *** My Answers! *** 1. I hate long chapters and when a paperback isn't floppy. 2. I love watching BookTube! I watch Destiny Sidwell, Rachel Catherine, Haley Pham, Sara Carolli and Just Ali! 3. Peeta Mellark, Warner from Shatter Me, Josh from The Way I Used to Be, and I think I'll go with Wes Bennett from Better than the Movies. 4. The Way I used to Be is my favorite book, and Uglies is my least favorite. 5. Height, displaying some, color, series together. Honestly just what looks best to me. I keep genres together, and I just generally try to make it cute. Thanks!

1) I used to enjoy pictures in my early elementary years but now when I older, of 14 I now mostly prefer books with lot of words and less pictures! 2) Uh no? What is it? 3) Hehe, Prince Geric from "Goose Girl" I always daydream of Prince Geric and I being together but he's taken by Anidori! 4) Idk yet... 5) I arrange my books by their genres like on very top of my mini library in my room are horses books, on second shelf, random books by its genres, 3rd shelf is history books, then finally with fourth and bottom shelf are Deaf books and its culture and history... tysm for a book quiz!

Hello! 1. I don't like books with pictures (I used to like it when I was little but now that I'm older, I prefer a picture-less book) 2. I have never heard of those but that's really cute and clever!! 3. Hehe, I would have to say Prince Charles from "So This Is Love" by Elizabeth Lim (my fav book!)...he's so charming, kind, and is a good kind of protective 4. The worst book I have ever read was probably Hatchet by Gary Paulsen and my favorite book is (of course) "So This Is Love" by Elizabeth Lim 5. I organize books in a series (in chronological order too!) and I put all my other random books from tallest to shortest. Also, my bookcase has CD's, which are arranged in order of my favorites to my least favorites. I'm with you; I'm constantly changing how it looks and add little decorations to make it look cute! Thank you so much for the quiz, it was super fun!

Hello! 1. Hardcover books. The flaps are annoying for me, and I just don't really like the feel. 2. No, I'm not sure what those are! 3. I don't think I have any! 4. The worst one so far I guess would be Matched by Ally Condie, I'm not a fan of dystopian or romance. My favorite book so far would probably be the twisted tale What Once Was Mine. 5. Series together and genre. Thanks for the quiz!
