A Fresh Start

HAPPY 2014

How I missed this blog, if anyone is reading this please comment or say hi or something! While I was gone for like a year, I only received approximately 2 comments on the blog so it would be nice if I could get some love!

Quick update about me:

I am now 19 years old and am attending my first year of college, living in a typical college dorm with my wonderful roommate. I currently have no major but I will probably be deciding that pretty soon.

I still continue to read, my love for reading has not diminished, even though I am a bit limited in my time to read.

My favorite books of last year were:

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
The Girl of Fire and Thorns Trilogy by Rae Carson
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

Why I was gone for so long:

I got tired of feeling pressured into doing so many different features while I just wanted to write reviews.
School also got in the way, and I lost interest in blogging.
I became addicted to Tumblr and Netflix?

Why I am back:
I missed reviewing books and talking to people who love them. I miss you guys. Those  of you that are reading this blog.


Those of you who signed up for the "How do they do it all?" feature:


Leave a comment, please if you are or if you are not, that is fine too! I will be e-mailing you guys individually anyways but just to cover the bases.


THE WINNER WAS KARINA!!!!! I will be emailing you to see if you would still like the book, if not I can send you another one.

All my reviews will be of books read in 2014, so looking forward to it!

I missed you guys, thanks for sticking with me!

  1. hi Alex! I am so glad you decided to return to the blogosphere! Happy new year to you! I totally understand about the feeling of being pressured to be able to post features and reviews. I think the blogging community changed a bit throughout the year. I remember I subscribed to your blog when I was just a newbie, but now my blog is a year old. :) Anyways, I am looking forward into reading more of your posts and good luck in college!

    1. Thanks for the comment and the welcome! What do you mean change? HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY! I wish you the best this coming year! Thank-you!!

  2. I haven't been on here since you were writing reviews, but since it seems like a good idea I think you should go fr it. If you start up writing I'm sure people will eventually comeback or come for the first time. :)

    1. I will do that! Thanks for the comment and the pep talk! <3
