I feel really positive and hopeful going into 2021 and anticipate a lot of major life changes. I’m not a huge fan of resolutions, but I’d like to set a few intentions for 2021.Continue reading “2021 Intentions”

This tag was created by Ariel Bissett on Youtube. Be sure to check out her videos there! I combined this book tag with the Mid Year Freak Out book tag just to see my progress from July and to see if any of my picks changed. I also took out some questions that just didn’t pertain. ( Earl Grey Books and ReadLikeWildFire created the Mid Year Freak Out tag.) Let’s go!

Happy November! Hope everyone had a nice Halloween weekend. I had some friends from my “pod” come over on Saturday to play games and eat pizza and we handed out candy to trick or treaters. On Friday, my school had a Halloween costume parade with our hybrid students and we gave them candy and prizes. Yesterday was a gloomy, rainy day, and I spent most of it sleeping and catching up on some housework. I can’t believe it’s already November!Continue reading “October Wrap-Up”
In the run up to the American election, tensions are high and political debates – even among friends – are getting heated. Signs are staked out in front lawns. Everywhere you look online, there’s an ad or post about the election.

Here are five lighthearted YA political fiction books to sink into.Continue reading “5 YA Political Fiction Books to Get You Swept Up in the Election Frenzy”
This tag was created by Tiffany at Read by Tiffany. So be sure to check out her post! I found this tag on Kristin’s site Kristin Kraves Books. I know it’s been fall for a good month now, but it’s my favorite season, so I’m trying to make it last!

I thought this would be a really fun way to celebrate that!Continue reading “The Fall Bucket List Book Tag”
