Rediscovering old worlds (a.k.a. why you should re-read books)

guess who’s back from hiatus?? (um. it’s me.)


Hello, people of the internet!

Humans love familiarity. And re-reading books – going back to visit worlds that you love – fills you with warmth and fuzziness and nostalgia of all the jokes, thefts, and occasional murders that have taken place there.

But there’s a lot more reasons – reasons that I have conveniently put together in a list for you guys. You’re welcome, and hopefully you’ll be convinced by the end of this post that re-reading is good for you, and not a waste of time. 🙂

Things that people who dog-ear books would like to say to people who use bookmarks

Hello, bookworms of the internet!

I have a confession to make. I dog-ear my books. 

I know, I know. “ARIS HOW COULD YOU DO THIS YOU’RE HARMING THE POOR BOOKS OHM YG GODS????” Chill. It’s not a big deal! I’m pretty sure a lot of people dog ear books… right? Right?!

I’m pretty sure that there are lots of so-called bookmark users that secretly dog-ear their books but don’t let anyone see because they don’t want people to judge them. Don’t do that. Wear your dog-ears on your sleeve! (???)

To be completely honest, I find people who use bookworms really weird. Like, not in a bad way, just… how??? How the hell do you manage to manage your bookmarks???*

So here are some things that the usual dog-earer would like to ask a person who uses bookmarks. Not trying to dis any bookmark lovers, but it had to be said!

*I don’t think this sentence exactly makes sense… and I’m not sure if I care.

Books to read on a rainy day! ⛈

Hello, people of the internet!

It’s raining literally 24/7 where I am which is great because now I have an excuse to not go out now I can stay at home, and curl up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. (Never forget the hot chocolate.)

On rainy days, there are specific kinds of book you feel like reading – books that’ll make you cry, that’ll make you think, that’ll help you relax. I made a little list of the books that would be perfect for rainy weather because #qualitycontent.

Book covers link to Goodreads pages, as per usual 🙂

A Reading Playlist // a.k.a I add more books to your TBR :)

Hello, citizens of the internet!

So, I recently finished Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist – and realised that the past few books I read all had something to do with music. So, I had the brilliant idea of making a (play) list of all books I’d read which had something to do with music/playlists. Which, come to think of it, is a lot of books. Huh.

I guess it’s because both music and books tell stories – and because there’s a story for every occasion. Sad, happy, or romantic*.

*ok that went deep.
(Also, all book covers link to their Goodreads pages. You’re welcome.)

Things book lovers do better than anyone else

Hello, bookworms of the internet!

Now, it’s no secret that bookworms are superior creatures that are blessed with many, many talents (like the ability to enjoy reading). Normally, you won’t notice these talents. Of course we’re not going to go around bragging about our ability to identify all cheap bookstores within a five-mile radius. But there are, without a doubt talents that all bookworms possess. Here’s a reminder of what they are.

The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag!

Hello, fellow book lovers!

HAPPY HARRY POTTER DAY!! 😀 The 31st of July is truly a sacred day. The birthday of the Chosen One, and our queen JK Rowling.

So, I was stalking bloggers I found under the “Harry Potter” tag, and I found this really cool one done by That Weird Brown Girl, and I JUST HAD TO DO IT. IT’S PERFECT FOR THIS MOMENTOUS OCCASION. Why would any Potterhead pass up this chance?

Reading Sprees + a bunch of mini reviews

I’d planned something else for this post, but then I went on an internet detox (*LE GASP DRAMATIQUE*) and ended up reading 5 books in two days…


Hello, internet people!

Yeah, you read that right. I went on an internet detox (you, probably: BUT ARIS HOW COULD YOU COMMIT SUCH SACRILEGE???). Calm down, it was only for like three days. And I came back, didn’t I?

But over the course of this detox, I realized that there’s so much I can do while I’m not on the internet! Like read!! :O I may have overdone that though.

Yes, I read five books over the course of two and a half days. It’s not ~that~ much. I guess. I know people who read faster. But I am kind of surprised.

You know how you want to stop reading but you just reached a very important part and just can’t stop?? That was me the whole weekend.

Books to read based on your Hogwarts Houses

Hello, fellow citizens of planet Internet!

Seeing as it is the merry month of July, and that the Chosen One’s birthday falls at the end of the month, I decided to do a Harry Potter-themed post. After all, how many times have we done things based on our Hogwarts houses? I’m a Ravenclaw, which I think suits me quite well 😀 My best friend is a Slytherin so we complement each other’s personalities.

Okay, let’s get started with this list! 😀
