Scaretober & Blog Ahead October 2016

So I basically took the month of September off and, well, most of August too. But I didn’t stop reading! When I realized I wasn’t really into writing reviews at the moment, I decided to get organized and start fresh for October. That didn’t exactly happen as well as I planned, but I do have some reviews in progress and most of them can fit into the types of reading you look for in October. I also have some more {Read More}

Why I’m Not Planning to Read The Cursed Child

When the news first broke that there would be a new Harry Potter story, the Internet almost broke with the excitement. I felt alone because I was more than a little apprehensive. Granted, I wasn’t spending much time on Twitter at that point, so maybe there were pockets of people like me that I missed. Genuine fans, I mean, not people who hate or even just don’t care about the whole phenomenon. There are some people who take pride in {Read More}

Money Matters: June 2016

I’ve seen other bloggers, like Berls at Fantasy is More Fun and Felicia at The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog, with book budget posts. It made me curious how much I’m spending on books each year. I have a rough idea, because I have an entertainment budget, but I’d like to get more detailed. I’m not going to try to stick to a set goal the way Berls and Felicia do, but it might end up making me think twice about {Read More}

Free Planner Stickers: Currently Reading/Library Books Due

If you came here through a Google search on free planner stickers, you might not realize that this is actually a book blog with a side of planner love. What could be more perfect for a book blogger/plannergirl than these Currently Reading stickers? I had a little room on the side of the page, so I threw in some Library Books Due stickers. These are sized for the Erin Condren vertical planner and should be printed at actual size, not {Read More}

Review: The BFF Bucket List by Dee Romito

Ella and Skyler have been best friends since kindergarten—so close that people smoosh their names together like they’re the same person: EllaandSkyler. SkylerandElla. But Ella notices the little ways she and Skyler have been slowly drifting apart. And she’s determined to fix things with a fun project she’s sure will bring them closer together—The BFF Bucket List. Skyler is totally on board. The girls must complete each task on the list together: things like facing their fears, hosting a fancy {Read More}

Planner Love: May 2016

I don’t usually do too much with my monthly pages, but I’ve decided I want to start using them more. These date covers are from a free printable at MyPlannerEnvy.com and were the first ones I cut with my new Silhoutte. The cut was terrible and I had some work to do to figure out the right settings but I think I’m good now. May 2-8 MY OTSPSecretSister sent me these Star Wars stickers from my Etsy wishlist. The sticker {Read More}

Planner Love: April 2016

I usually post Planner Love on the first Saturday of the month, but I forgot to push the schedule button and found it sitting in my drafts. There were a lot of good sales in Etsy sticker shops in April, and even though I decided I wanted to make more of my own stickers, I found myself buying a lot of kits. (The baseball stickers were all purchased.) It really is a lot more convenient since I didn’t yet have {Read More}
