Finally, I Can Reveal My Glorious Bookshelves โ†’ #TheShelfieHop

Woot-woot! #TheShelfieHop is here!

If you are a foolish mundane and you don’t know what #TheShelfieHop is, then lemme run it down for you:

Crystal @ The Book Emoji and Kristen @ My Friends are Fiction decided to host a totally new blog hop where everyone will just take a #shelfie and post it on their blogs! It’s a one-day hop, and she has a whole signup form over here. I think this is a really creative thing to do, and it also gives all us proud #shelfiers to display our hoardings. *mwahahahaha* So thank you, Kristen & Crystal (isn’t that funny, your names kinda rhyme) for starting this. I’m glad to have supported it, and I hope you’ll do it next year!

*P.S. I hope you don’t mind that I changed the filter on your banner to fit my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ #YOLO*

Her blog is actually a collaboration with a bunch of people from Goodreads and other various blogs (including me, yay!), so you should go check her out.

NaNoWriMo: An Inspirational Utopia, or a Devilishly Attractive Stress Party?!

There is a lot of buzz about this NaNoWriMo going around the blogging world. National November Writing Month is a pretty popular thing (like No-Shave November, but less gross), and I kinda wanted to chat about it with you.

I’m not a regular NaNoWriMo participant. Let me just make that clear. Writing an entire novel (50,000+ words) in 30 days is just too crazy for me to try right now. I really applaud and revere all the people who do sign up for this challenge, because their bravery is greater than a medieval knight’s. Like Cait from Paper Fury. She’sย writing a novel about sushi and dragons and an EPIC heist.ย It will be gloriousssss.

But one question is always in my mind. Is NaNoWriMo really helpful? Does it make a difference? Or is it just an insane contest that will freak everyone out? Let us discuss this together.

I’m Very Excited for Nicola Yoon | TTT

I totally forgot about this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post, and that’s why it is now being published on a Wednesday. BUT this week’s prompt was not very inspiring to me anyways, so… it’s kind of a lose/win, instead of a lose/lose.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish. Every Tuesday, we book bloggers congregate to discuss ten interesting (and bookish) things with each other. To join in and view our linkup,ย click over here.ย This week’s prompt was 10 Debut Authors Whose Sophomore Novels You’re Looking Forward To.

I Can’t Stop Bawling | Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

OVERALL FEELING:

That damn epilogue. I may never recover. *dies from heartbreak* This was an epic finale, and I want to fangirl about it with you.

THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING.

A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever. As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmainโ€™s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.
