This week’s excerpt is from The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
I am really drawn into the characters from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, and one of the big scenes that got me for the main character was when she’s first introduced as Mareena Titanos.
I found this over at Thrice Read and I thought that I would give it a try. Summer is now in full swing, so this feels like the perfect time to this tag along with a summer-themed song:
Also, a lot of puppy GIFs! Because nothing says summer like puppy gifts.
I saw this over at The Girl Who Reads Too Much and it really spoke to my soul at the moment so I thought I would steal it seems like a fun concept and I am on a bit of a Pinterest binge with a craving for beautiful images.
Bloggers are (let’s just be honest here) the absolute best. There’s so much diversity and personality and creativity in this community—and what better way to celebrate those things than by spending the next twelve hours of our lives hunting down and collaging the images that best reflect our individual awesomeness?
- Collect any number of images that you feel represent you as a person—your personality, aspirations, favorite things, anything at all that makes you you.
- Put your chosen images together into a collage of whatever size and shape you find pleasing.
- Share your masterpiece with everyone, in all the places.
- Maybe nominate other bloggers as a way to tell them, “Hey, you, I think you’re awesome, and we should celebrate that awesomeness.”
- Share these rules (and maybe the below tips, if you’re feeling helpful).
So, here we go! Let’s see the images that I picked! My blog tends to run mostly neutral with a lot of photos, so for this exercise, I went with three colors I was drawn to, and that’s tangerine orange, flamingo pink, and oceanside blue.

I found this tag over at Tea, Books & Fun and I thought that I would give it a try. I love chocolate and I couldn’t resist the chance to relate books to this amazing food of the gods.
So, here we go.
Warning: I may have used some inappropriate GIFs and you may leave this tag with a sudden craving of chocolate!
Memorable Mondays is a meme that focuses on spotlighting our favorite quotes from books we’ve read.
This week’s quote comes from The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
Normally, I try to keep my reviews spoiler free, but for the purposes of this one, there will be spoilers. If you are here because you watch the show, what I spoil won’t be much of a surprise.
I happened upon The 100, the television show, when I was browsing Netflix one day. I watched the show in a day and while I thought it was good I didn’t really get drawn in until Season 2 and 3.
I was doing very well through the hiatuses. I missed the characters but I didn’t feel a deep ache in my soul like I did when I used to watch Battlestar Galactica. Then I found and completed ‘The 100’ Character Book Tag!
Comparing some of my favorite book characters to the characters on this show made me see the show’s characters in a new way. I’ve been reawatching the show for the last month, and I decided to give the book series a try while I wait for Season 4.
Kass Morgan’s young adult dystopian series, The 100, follows one hundred delinquents, that are considered expendable by society, are they are sent to a radioactive earth to see if it’s survivable. It could be their second chance, or a suicide mission.
The book is told with each chapter featuring the thoughts of a different character. Clarke Griffin was arrested for treason and is haunted by the memory of what she really did. Wells Jaha is the chancellor’s son. He followed the girl he loved to Earth, but she may never forgive him. Bellamy Blake fought his way onto the drop ship to protect his sister. Glass Sorenson escaped the transport but finds that life on the Colony might be just as dangerous.
