My Thoughts on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter Series

Friday, July 1, 2016



   Hello, lovely people! Today I thought I would address a topic that I have been keeping to myself since the beginning of this year. I have been keeping it quiet mostly because...well, I'm an opinionated person. Very opinionated, actually. And I've discovered that sometimes in life it is better for everybody if one lets their private ideas remain what they are--private. *cheeky grin

Would You Rather: Book Tag

Saturday, June 18, 2016




Hello, lovely people! So, waaaaaayyyyy back in the distant days of February, my dear blogging-buddy, Wendy Greene of the Jumping Bean, tagged me in the Would You Rather Book Tag. But I was an incredibly lazy bean who couldn't get her life together (*snorts* What am I saying...? That's still me) and I neglected to do it. BUT HERE WE ARE NOW. Thanks for the tag, love!


Mourning a Character Death // my life in a nutshell

Wednesday, June 15, 2016




   Hey, lovely people! Now that I'm getting back into the swing of blogging again, I thought I would make a fun GIF-post to celebrate. I mean c'mon, who doesn't love a trillion gifs all over the place?? This is a topic that I'm sure everyone can relate to because we all have had a favorite character die in a book/tv show & we didn't know what to do about it. At least, I know I have...

   Hello, lovely people! Oh my heavens, it's been sooo long since I've opened a blog post with that greeting! But it feels so nice to be back!!


The Bells of Paradise // book review

Tuesday, March 8, 2016



    Hello, lovely people! Today I am pleased to announce that I have entered a new stage in the life of a book-blogger.

So please put your hands together for The Bells of Paradise by Suzannah Rowntree!! (Which you can purchase on Amazon right here...)


Emoji Book Tag // just flailing over books

Saturday, February 20, 2016



Rules:

-Link to the tag’s creators, and thank the person who tagged you.-
-Choose your top five favorite or recently used emojis, explaining in what situations you use them.-
 -Then associate each one with a book or character.-
-Tag whoever you want!-



    I was tagged by Sydney at The Elliott Countenance back in December... Thanks, dear! I do, however, feel terrible for it taking me this long to do this tag, because it is super cute!! Maybe one day I will stay on top of things & do tags immediately after I am tagged? (Probably not, but I can still dream, right...?)



My Valentine's Gift To You // book giveaway

Sunday, February 14, 2016




    "Roses are red, violets are blue, books are the best gifts for me & for you..."


    Hello, lovely people! Today, as you most likely know, is Single Awareness Day Valentine's Day... As I haven't a sweetheart to dote on today, I thought 'why not dote on my precious followers?' And what better way to do that than to give you books?? So, in order to tell you how much I ardently admire and love you, I thought I'd give away a very special book that I had the honor of contributing to!


In Which the GoTeenWriters Challenge Runs Away with Me...

Monday, February 8, 2016




          Hello, lovelies! Today I am going to take some time to talk about my writing. Here lately, I just haven't been feeling it... I've been crazy busy (new job, last year of highschool, university plans!), and personal writing has kinda taken a bit of a back seat. But to be honest, I think this was a good thing--sometimes you just have to step back & breathe in order to reevaluate what you are doing and why.

          I write because I love it.
          I write because I am unique.
          I write because I have a story to share.

For Everything There Is A Season // a poem

Friday, January 8, 2016





"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace." ~Ecclesiastes 3:1-8



10 Ways to Beautify Your Blog

Saturday, January 2, 2016







   "Hi, Hannah! 

Okay, every single time I come to your blog, I geek out about the design. It's beautiful and so clean. Is this something you've put together (are you technologically advanced? ;) Is there a place to go that has great tutorials on how to do stuff like this, or would you mind laying out a few tips/tricks for me?


Keep up the stellar writing God has gifted you with!

   Hello, lovely people! As you have probably guessed from the title & the quote, I am going to talk about blogging today. More specifically, blog design. I often get compliments on my blog's looks and layout! (And if you are one of the precious people who has in the past, here's a sincere thank you! You are awesome.) And just recently I had a question from Rachel about how I spruced up my blog. So I decided to answer it in a nice, big post. Because who doesn't like big blog posts??
