ALA Annual 2017 Recap + Giveaway!

ALA Annual was a couple weeks ago, but better late than never, right? I went to ALA for the first time last June and it was by far the best book event I’ve ever been to. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend this year (shout out to Claribel–thank you again for making my dreams come true <3), and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Awesome signings, eagerly anticipated galleys, an amazing roommate (my love Ava) = the best time EVER?

The answer is yes. HELL YES IT WAS!! Stick around for a recap of the 3 days I was there, plus a giveaway for 5 books (including ARCs) and assorted swag!

End of the Year Survey 2016!

2016 is finally coming to a close. I think it’s safe to say that 2016 was a huge dumpster fire for everyone, me included. But I don’t want to focus on the bad parts of the year, I want to focus on the good parts. So what was good about it? For one, I wrote, revised and submitted a book to Pitch Wars! I got a job (and started earning money, ayyy)!! I got over a huge slump of depression and didn’t completely ruin my GPA! And I did my first full year of blogging *parties*

Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner is hosting this fun annual end of the year survey, and I thought it would be a great way to see an overview of my year in reading and blogging! (All of the graphics used in this post are hers). Continue reading
