Goodbye 2019: The End of Year Book Survey, ft. My Best & Worst Books and Yearly Stats!!

FINALLY, I can write this post.

I’m gonna be honest, I’ve been waiting all year for this post, because it’s one of my favorites to write, despite all the hours of work it takes me.

Today, as always, I’m linking up with the End of Year Book Survey created by The Perpetual Page Turner. There are lots of questions on this wonderful survey that I won’t be answering, but I truly love how comprehensive it is! I’ll also be talking about my reading stats, garnered by my wondrous google spreadsheet and presented in the form of pie charts!!

Also: Hi! I’m currently in NYC right now, having the time of my life!! (Perhaps we’ll see a post about it?) I just wanted to say that this post took me HOURS to make, hence why I’m posting it so much later than I wanted to. Who knows if I’ll disappear again, but I hope you all have a good day!!

Things You Didn’t Need to Know About Me, like My Blogging Fears & Dreams and My Thoughts on Various Book Platforms

Hello, and welcome back to me oversharing!!

Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books, one of the best bloggers you’ll ever meet, was kind enough to nominate me for the Liebster Award! And because her questions are really fun (and the amount of good post ideas I have is dwindling) I decided to do it today.

Of course, I ended up oversharing and writing too much (somehow this is 2K words long??), but at this point, this kind of thing is expected from me, so I’ll just shut up with this intro!

The Pancake Book Tag that Makes Me Hungry (Yes Hello I’m Back)

Hello, I’m back!!!

Sorry for disappearing on you guys for a week!! Be prepared for this to happen more often as I drown in schoolwork. My teachers love to shove a bunch of work at me all at once, and then I have breaks in between all the huge workloads (which is how I’m now able to write this blog post!).

I’m still not quite sure how I’m going to balance blogging with everything, because I’ve clearly been struggling, but it’s fine I’ll just die!!! I’m not confident in my ability to come back if I take a longer hiatus, so I’m gonna keep trying to stay on top of everything, but c’est difficile et je suis désolée!

I thought for my first post “back” (I sound dramatic because I AM), I’d do something fun and easy that I’ve been meaning to do a while: The Pancake Book Tag! I think I’ve been tagged a few times for this one, but I was also first tagged by the creator, Becky @ Blogs of a Bookaholic. Be sure to check out Becky and her blog, because she’s an absolute angel!!

Get to Know Ya Tag: Some Bookish Questions to Get to Know Me a Little Bit Better!!

I don’t even want to look back on when I last did a tag.

A lot of bloggers are bad at remembering to do tags and awards that people tagged them to do, and I’m not excluded!! But I’ve been getting a lot of new followers lately, probably as a result of the Book Blogger Awards and me being much more active again, so I thought, why not do a tag to help people get to know me a little better!

I also was going to post my nominations for the Book Blogger Awards (by the way, GET THOSE IN BY 11:59PM CDT ON JULY 20!!!), but anxiety got the best of me*, and I was running short on post ideas. So it was perfect timing that the lovely Jenna @ Bookmark Your Thoughts tagged me for this! Be sure to check out her post as well!!

*I feel terrible for encouraging people to post their nominations and not doing that myself, but I think as a host it might be better—both in general and for my anxiety—not to do them publicly in case people think I’m showing bias towards the people I nominate!!! I’m obviously not, but every time I think about posting my nominations, I just get filled with a terrible fear that people will think I’m rigging it!!!!!

Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag: 2019 Edition! (Exposing Myself for All the Rereading I’ve Done This Year)

I’m shocked we’re halfway through 2019 already??

I honestly can’t tell how I’m feeling about the year (depression has completely numbed my mind!!!) but I definitely will say that I was NOT prepared to be halfway done with it already.

Thank you so much to Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books for tagging me to do this! I love doing this tag every year, because I will freak out about books any day of the year, even though this time around I’m just embarrassing myself with my ratio of rereads to non-rereads. (I didn’t allow this!! Why did I do this to myself!!!)

All covers link to their Goodreads page! Note that I chose not to do all the questions.
