Bookish Life: I’m Feeling…

I'm not supposed to be officially back from my hiatus until Sunday, but I felt I needed to get this out. There's a lot going on in this little mind of mine. I'm feeling loved...  I want to start this out positively and say that I lack no love in my life and for that I am eternally grateful. From my wonderful fiancé Dave to my always supportive family to the many bookish friends I have around the world, I am surrounded by an amazing support group and am so happy to have you all in my life....

Bookish Life: A Bookish Introduction to Yours Truly

Bookish Life: A Bookish Introduction to Yours Truly
Bookish Life are for the posts in which I want to get personal, not necessarily related to books. Thank you to everyone who answered my question at the bottom of the latest Weekly Recap. I have decided I'm going to follow through with my original plan and crosspost when I can so those of you who want to watch them can do so without having to do the YouTube thing, and those of you who don't want to watch them can still find some variation of the content in a written blog post.

Bookish Life: The Story of Dave
[WARNING: SUPER-LONG AND RAMBLY POST AHEAD. WHOOPS.] Oh look, another Bookish Life feature. It's been quite a while since I've done one of these. I originally planned on being done with them after I opened my personal blog at the beginning of the year, but after realizing running a personal blog and a book blog was more work than I wanted to do I decided to go back to my olden ways. So yes, Bookish Life is back. Let's get a little personal. As most of you know, I moved back home at the...

Bookish Life: A Year in London

A Year in London
I have been in London for over a year. A YEAR. Can you believe it? (I can't.) It's one of those things where you just get in the groove of things, you just keep chugging along, and then suddenly you stop and look around and wonder... Where has all the time gone? I mean, this is it. I've handed in my dissertation. I'm practically done with my Master's degree. I'll be starting the difficult and scary process soon of trying to convince a publisher to sponsor me for a Work Visa so I can...
