Pokemon Go Book Tag

Pokemon Go Book Tag

So I wasn’t tagged, but when I saw this amazing book tag on Read At Midnight I knew I had to do it. Not only am I obsessed with Pokemon Go just like the rest of the world, I love how different the questions were here, too. All these perfect graphics were made by Aentee and since she said it was okay to use these for our posts, I saw no reason to try to resist. I’ve been a casual […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Things We Want to Try or Learn Because of Books

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic: Things We Want to Try or Learn Because of Books alexia’s picks 1. Become fluent in a different language. True story, as a kindergartener, I knew how to speak Swahili.

Book Review: Tumbling by Caela Carter

Book Review: Tumbling by Caela Carter

There really are not that many YA sports books and that definitely needs to change, which is why I was so excited to read a YA gymnastics book.

Stacking the Shelves #54

Yes, my fifteen year old brother was held at gunpoint for his bike & cell phone. I’m so glad he just gave it up without trying to fight the guy. The good thing is, we have rental insurance, so he’ll be able to […]

Book Review: It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han

Book Review: It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han
