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.

I’ve never done a monthly recap before so let’s just see how this goes?? Bare with me, please.


Hello, people of the internet!

Anyway, let’s

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.

The Blogger Recognition Award!

Hello, people of the internet!

So I was lucky enough to be nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award! This is exciting because it’s my third award!!! Thank you to the amazing Dani @ Perspective of a Writer – she’s a wonderful blogger who loves K-drama and books (unusual combination, but she makes it work!). It’s always amazing conversing with her in the comments about different books. 😀

I’ll be discussing how I started my blog, and some advice for new bloggers!

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.)

Fierce Fangirl Friday: MUSICALS!

Hello, fellow fangirls (or boys) of the internet!

Fierce Fangirl Fridays are put on by the wonderful and lovely Jackie @ Too Much of a Booknerd. If you’re not following her already, seriously, go do it, because she’s amazing. Now, what is Fierce Fangirl Fridays? Basically, it’s where you fangirl/boy over anything – that’s right, each week you pick a different thing you’re fangirling about the moment and JUST RUN FREE WITH THE FEELS. Only rule? Just pingback to her post here! It’s so easy that it hurts. 😄

It’s probably no surprise for you guys to find out that I love musicals (after all, I have a whole post fangirling about Hamilton), but I never really cared much for musicals before?? And now that I’ve sunk into that hole discovered them, I can’t STOP LISTENING TO THEM.

Musicals are great because they tell stories through songs. Which is an awesome change from all the trashy pop music going around! (Noah Fence to anyone.) And the story lines are usually awesome: take Heathers. It starts off as your everyday high school drama, but ends up into a murder mystery/kill everyone sort of thing. It also deals with lots of problems, like suicide, psychopathy, and depression, along with general murderous tendencies and what to do if you have them. 🙂

So, for this post, I planned on listing some of my favourite musicals and FANGIRLING ALL OVER THEM BECAUSE NONE OF MY FRIENDS LISTEN TO THEM AND I AM IN SEVERE NEED OF A FELLOW FANGIRL.

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.
