It pains us to say it but summer is coming to an end. We’ve been seeing people all over the blogosphere talk about how they’re starting school, and though we start school later than most (August 27th, woot woot), we live in constant fear of that fast-approaching day. Coincidentally, we both ended up scheduling vacations … Continue reading Vacation! AKA Why We’re Going on Hiatus
On Friday it was National Book Lovers Day, a day when bibliophiles are celebrated, and everyone can openly share their love of books with the world. But that got me thinking, don’t book lovers do that every day? There are millions of people out there who love reading and you can see it all the … Continue reading Bookworm Stereotypes: Fact or Fiction?
Hello and welcome! Today's post is going to be somewhat different because today is Chana's birthday and I'm using that as an excuse to talk about how wonderful she is! There are so many things that Chana noticeably does for our blog, such as how she designs all of our graphics, and how she manages … Continue reading Birthdays and Blogging
We were nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Rita @ Bookish Rita back in April, so it's about time we got around to it! But since we're so behind on tags, we decided to do something a bit unconventional. We're also doing the Liebster Blogger Award that the lovely Charlotte @ Bewitching Books, Ravenous Reads … Continue reading Get to Know Us! The Sunshine and Liebster Blogger Awards
It's time for our monthly wrap up! That fun time of the month where we recap all that we've read and done. July was a packed month for both of us, and as we're probably going to mention 3000 times, WE FINISHED OUR SUMMER COURSES!! This means that we are free, and for the first … Continue reading July Reading Wrap Up
I think we can all agree that it’s lots of fun to buy things. More specifically, buying books is fun. Going to the store, perusing the aisles, running your hand on every single spine there is just so you know what the book feels like. All essential parts of shopping for books. But there are … Continue reading Book Buying Habits
Last Friday, the two of us were lucky to attend the second annual Epic Reads Day. We had both been sick the week before and had finals in just a few days, and so quite honestly, the event slipped our minds until just a few days beforehand. But what a day it was! We had … Continue reading Epic Reads Day Recap!
We’ve had this blog for a little over a year now (cue freakout, also if you haven't entered yet, two more days to enter our giveaway), so I think that it’s about time for a Harry Potter-themed post. We wouldn’t want people to start thinking that we didn’t like Harry Potter or something horrible like … Continue reading Why I Like Being Slytherin (And It’s Not Just Because I Look Good in Green)
I was recently mucking about on my Goodreads (as one does) and I decided to pop in to my Want to Read shelf to see what was going on there. It was then that I noticed, hey, all those posts that I write about my TBR are technically lies because I don't actually have an … Continue reading 3 Books on my TBR that are Filing Neglect Claims
Most of the times when I see people talking about judging a book by its cover, they’re talking about a cover buy. A book that they only picked up because of how pretty the cover was.
