I (Technically) Won Camp NaNo? // RRR and Other Updates

RRRAugust

Well, if it isn’t the very last day of the month ….

[note: yeah … I do realize that it’s actually the first day of the month currently. Basically what happened (and partially why I didn’t post last week …) is that we ripped out all the carpeting in my bedroom and everything is in boxes and a mess and I couldn’t find my laptop charger ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Which … was a serious problem. BUT I FOUND IT SO NOW I’M BACK AND GOOD TO GO HOPEFULLY]

This may come as a shock to some but Camp NaNo (and July) is officially over tomorrow. What does this mean? Many are frantically writing their hearts out to get the last 500, 1k, 2k, however many words down in their story to reach their goal for the month. Many are eating celebratory cake. So which one are you? And which one am I?

Random Ramblings Of A Reader July Edition // Past Road Trips & Camp NaNo!

JulyRRR

Hello, lovelies! I can’t believe it’s already the second week in July. Now that I’ve finally gotten through all the blog tours and such,* Penumbra can finally just chill a bit, so I’m going to update you on my boring life! *streamers explode* *people cheer*

Anyway, June was a pretty packed month and July promises to be another one so … I did loads of stuff. Which I can now ramble to y’all about if you’re so kind as to listen.** *runs away laughing evilly*

*Which I have to admit were fun, if a bit stressful. Hopefully I still have some hair after tearing it out and rushing to read books and write posts after vacation for a while?? Who knows.
**Or even if you don’t listen. That’s still chill.

Hello, lovelies! So I have exciting news: The Twin Arrows by the lovely Kate Willis was released today!  What’s also exiting for me is that I had the lovely opportunity to read an ARC for review so now I can ramble on about my thoughts to y’all. 😉

ABOUT THE BOOK

Her brother Drewin won’t wait any longer. The knight promised to escort him isn’t coming, and gossiping neighbors threaten to reveal his identity. He strikes out on his own, sure he can outrun the danger…

Vacation Packing Tips // Books + I want to bring 60 please help me

VacationBooks.png

Hello loves! For those of you who don’t know I am currently driving many many miles as of about … four in the morning today.

No, I didn’t write and publish this all as I was both sleeping/driving/sitting in a car. Yes, this is a scheduled post from a couple of days ago because packing is a pain and I will die.

So, on the subject of packing, I have come to help all y’all poor unfortunate souls with tips that I learned the hard way as I tried to pack around sixty books to bring on my two-week long vacation.

The Eating Habits of A Bookworm // Just Books or Actual Food???

The Eating Habits of A Bookworm // Just Books or Actual Food???

EatingHabits.png

It’s a commonly known fact that bookworms like munching on books. At least in some sense. It’s slightly less commonly known that they also have to (and like) eating other types of nourishment.

But eat we do, and most of us enjoy food immensely, though obviously not as much as books.*

But what do bookworms even eat? Will the world ever know this deep and dark secret??

The answer to that question is simple: No.

Wait … possibly yes, depending on if I a self-proclaimed full-blooded bookworm even happen to have this exclusive knowledge.**

*The books with food actually in them are probably the best, as they combine two of our loves.
**Which I really shouldn’t as I’m obviously not trust worthy.

April Is Over Update! Random Rambling Of a Reader// Featuring: Failure and cake

RRRApril.png

Hello, loves.

Well, surprise, surprise, it’s May! April seemed to have gone extraordinarily fast, did it not? Camp NaNo and NaPoWriMo (which … I did neither so … *shrugs* 😛 ) happened … congrats to all who participated! If you won or not you went for it and that’s an accomplishment in itself. Whether you got 1 word or 100,000 words (anybody actually get 100,000 words? If so … please throw yourself a party. I am in awe of you.) you tried and that’s all that matters. You have more than you have at the beginning of the month, and even if you think it’s trash that needs to be burned (it’s probably not tbh. don’t burn anything, please) you experienced stuff that you wouldn’t have if you hadn’t tried!

Yeah … enough cheesiness. (*falls over* *chokes* *dies* my liiifffee) (though seriously, good job, you peoples). Let’s now move on to the failure of the month! Or … the goals for April. *quiet, sad laughter* (The leader of the bad guys sang// something soft and soaked with pain// [insert additional, skipped lyrics] as the four walls declared … her … insane. *coughs* That just seemed … fitting …)

‘Ello once again, lovelies! I’m back from vacation! Did y’all miss me? 😉 Nah? I probably need to be gone a bit longer for that to happen …

As y’all can probably tell, it’s April! Did anybody pull any pranks on the first? My sis cut out a ridiculous amount of paper fish which are now hidden all around the house …

Anyway, without further ado let us merge into …
