Which #GIRLPOWER Contemporary YA Book Should You Read According To Your Ice Cream Preferences? | I Know That You Know That You Want to Know This

I love classifying readers according to their ice cream preferences.* Deeply philosophical stuff, really. It tells you so much about them.*

HELP ME I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO POST HELP I thought this was such an incredibly ingenious idea; it’s not like this quiz hasn’t done 1049290 times before. HELP ME I’M STUCK IN THE WORST BLOGGING SLUMP EVER I’m just blown away by my own creativity. HELPPP

Basically: Just click on each of the yummy ice cream pics to find out which YA book you match to!! Be sure to have a pint of Ben and Jerry’s near you on standby, because this may or may not result in intense ice cream craving episodes.

Blogger Recognition Award | In Which I Practically Swim In Validation

I feel so recognized right now and it’s the best thing ever.

I think I’m going to print this badge out and frame it in my room so that I can look at it whenever I need to feel validated again. Which is basically all the time, let’s be honest, because I’m a very #desperate and #insecure lil marshmallow.

(Also please note that I am using these hashtags ironically because I think they are the worst things EVER, but at the same time I find them so so funny. #ilikewritinglonghashtagslikethis #couldyouevenreadthat)

look…. look at how beautiful this is *single tear*

ANYWAYS, massive thanks are in order to the lovely Queen Delphine *, who very generously tagged me, a mere peasant! Her posts are always a delight to read and she’s SO SASSY and SO SO WONDERFUL. I love it. I love her posts. I love her. I love you. I AM FILLED WITH LOVE FOR ALL THINGS.**

*WOW that rhymed! Coincidence? I think not!

**except for American cheese, I hate American cheese. And also the Percy Jackson movie. I hate that too.

Reading Slumps, The Bane of Any Bookworm’s Miserable Existence | 7 Foolproof Ways To (Sort Of) Drag Yourself Out Of Them

What exactly is a reading slump, you ask? Allow me to enlighten you.

reading slump (n)

  • the devil incarnate.
  • a specter that haunts a reader’s worst nightmares.
  • not being able to a book because you can’t. you just CAN’T.

To give you a better picture of the monstrosity that is a READING SLUMP, allow me to present an actual, real-life scenario, starring yours truly and inspired by Urban Dictionary. Because obviously we all know that Urban Dictionary is such a trusted and legitimate source of factual information.

The UNIQUE Blogger Award (Who, Me??!!)

You might be asking yourself, why is there a picture of pineapples on the featured image?? What does this award even have to do with pineapples?

WELL, a) this photo was aesthetic and b) more importantly, it was FREE. Those are the two things I look for in life: aesthetic and free.

Also, I really like pineapples, just not on my pizza because that is just UNNATURAL end of the story. (Join me in my quest to cleanse the pineapple-on-pizza plague from existence, one scathing remark at a time!)*

MOVING ON, I can’t believe I’ve been nominated for ANOTHER award! *squeals* Sending all the love to the bibliophile Ash @ Ash the Bookworm for generously nominating me! You can also send all the love, too, by checking out her amazin’ blog because she deserves so many more followers. THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME FEEL VALIDATED. LOVE YOU. ❤

*I may have just offended the entire pineapple-lover population

Wonder Woman Tag (Basically, The BEST TAG EVER)





^ No, that was not me slamming my head against the keyboard multiple times, though that’s a close guess! This is obviously the sound of the amazing new Wonder Woman theme!

I’m such a fake fan– honestly, I haven’t even read the comics. FIGHT ME.**

I was tagged by the sweetie pie Emma @ Thoughts of a Brown Eyed Girl, whose blog is always such a delight to read, and who you should definitely check out because she, like Wonder Woman, is also THE BEST.

**Actually, don’t because my arms have all the strength of two limp spaghetti noodles

“Detention Land” by Susan Orion (ARC Review) | Trapped In A Room Of Genius Delinquent Boys, Ginger Ale, And A Whole Lotta Farting

Some people say the Messiah is coming; I say, I am already here.

Warning: This book contains copious amounts of farting. And ginger ale.

Seriously. Judging from the copious amount of times ginger ale is mentioned, I can deduce one of three things:

a) the author really, really, REALLY likes ginger ale,

b) ginger ale is somehow a very profound motif meant to represent the meaning of life, or

c) the author is secretly conspiring with/sponsoring every ginger ale company in the world.

Awesome Blogger Award (??!!!)

I KNOW I’M SHOCKED TOO! Really, I’m not awesome in any way– more like fabulously self-deprecating. And fabulous, in general.

But this is still so cool!! As with everything, I have procrastinated on my responses, but let’s all just consider it as being posted “fashionably late”, because that just sounds much better.

Much hugs to Noriko @ Diary of a Bookfiend for nominating me! You deserve all the boba (and tempura!!) in the world. ❤ She’s the sweetest person ever, and I strongly encourage you to check out her blog. No pressure or anything, but… *waves boba straw menacingly*

“Now I Rise” by Kiersten White (Book Review) | Stabby Girls, Cinnamon Roll Boys, And Lots Of Angst

Fun fact: I was typing up this review at 3 in the morning, and when I looked back to proofread it the next day, I realized that I had written “Radoo” in place of Radu every. Single. Time.

For some reason, I found it hilarious and laughed for practically five minutes straight. I’m still giggling thinking about it. I probably just have an odd sense of humor.

That, or I really need to get more sleep.
