A road trip around France with bicycles and sausages, Piglettes is a fun read that deals with bullying, puberty, and independence. #BookReview

Nope. I can't keep up until midterms, apparently. Before announcing my inevitable hiatus, let me just make my final wrap-up before shelving my blog for the next three months at least. I tried finishing books between school but some things just like getting in the way. With that said, I have only posted ONE book review for this month, and that makes me sad. [ 399 more words ]

I feel terrible for not posting book reviews. And I'm making up for them by doing tags so while I trudge through life as a new person of legal age (I just turned 18 last Friday!), you will get to know who I am! (Because that's what you're here for, obviously lol) Thank you Priyasha for tagging me!! 1. DO YOU GET SICK WHILE READING IN THE CAR? [ 605 more words ]

I have to admit: most of the books I own are set either in the US or UK, but I'm sure I have read a book or two (probably around four) that are about the east. This week's Top 5 Wednesday topic is Books That Aren't Set/Inspired By The Western World where I answer: I know this is a long title, but I couldn't figure out how else to word it and still get the point across.

My First Time is a tag created by Louise Pentland (Sprinkle of Glitter) on YouTube back in 2013. I've seen other YouTubers as well as book bloggers do this and I thought this would be a fun way for you to get to know me. As it is my birthday today (yay!) I've decided to list down 18 first times.

Before I got into full fill-my-shelf-with-YA-books, I used to read childrens' books, especially those by Roald Dahl. I still look through shelves of children's books when I visit bookstores since I still don't think of myself as an almost-of-legal-age teen. This week's Top 5 Wednesday topic is Children's Books where I answer: This can include Middle Grade (but try to recommend more than just Harry Potter or Percy Jackson!) Feel free to talk about your childhood faves or most recent reads. [ 417 more words ]

Have you heard of Nancy Drew? No? Yes? Let me take you down memory lane then...

Everything starts off somewhere. Empty pieces of paper get turned into books. A series of noises could turn into music. Even a bland piece of meat could be a savory dish. Like everything else, my l…

I've finally got my hands on this book.. thanks to my classmate whose daily goal is to get on my nerves by being weird. I actually have no idea what this book is about but after reading a lot of reviews about how amazing this book is, I decided to borrow it from my classmate. Book Beginning "Maybe Richie Valens died young - but he did something. [ 155 more words ]

The last time I visited the school library was last school year. Senior High School (SHS) students had a separate section at the far end of the high school library where we had a few fiction books, science magazines and books, and other references. I decided to visit the library two weeks into school with a few friends. When we walked up to the high school library, we were greeted by a different librarian. [ 371 more words ]

The school library is an amazing place – it is where students research, do homework, read for leisure, or feel the aircon in the midst of a hot lunch afternoon – but is a library still …

This is the perfect time to scour my bookshelf for non-romantic stories after building an entire shelf of romantic YA novels. I actually got excited for this week's topic because I was so sure I had loads of books without romance, which turned out to be mostly children's books. This week's Top 5 Wednesday topic is Books Without Romance where I answer: A few (very, very few) people complained about the "shipping" topics lately, so I thought it would be good to talk about books that don't have a romantic subplot!

Talk about books that don’t have a romantic subplot! This is a really hard one, so if you can’t find any, you can talk about some where the romance is super super minor. Like barely men…

That one incentive of being a book blogger are the ARCs that come with it. In this post, I share my first few ARCs from Edelweiss.

https://bymybookshelf.wordpress.com/…/26/the-first-few-arcs/

Every book blogger probably knows by now that ARCs or Advanced Reader’s Copies are important. ARCs are copies of a book that are yet to be published and are reviewed by bloggers right around …
