Since joining the book blogger community I’ve met some really amazing people. These content creators are brilliant, creative, and absolutely one of a kind. So, I thought it might be fun to interview some of these unique and inspiring creators. Today, TheBookBratz were kind enough to stop by the blog as my first guinea pigs-ah, I mean, first guests. Let’s dive into the interview, shall we?
Everyone has that comfy, cozy little place they like to curl up in with a book, and maybe a cup of tea, and sink into whatever world is between the pages. After seeing a few people doing videos and blog posts on this very topic, I wanted to jump in and share my favorite reading spots as well.
It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by already. A year since I put my foot down on my anxieties and took the plunge, pressed the button and launched Scarletwriters for the first time. Now, this site isn’t a year old yet; it’s my second launch, but I have been blogging consistently for a full year regardless. And a crazy year it has been. So, here’s a little roundup of the opportunities this blog has afforded me in my first year.
While having a discussion with my mother about the rampant amount of alluded to sex scenes in Young Adult literature and the darker themes the category has adopted, I began to wonder where the delineation between Young Adult and New Adult was today.
I’ve never been a huge fan of the warmer months, but the one thing I do love is taking the time to clean and redecorate my room for a fresh perspective. It’s always nice to wake up to the air conditioner on full-blast and a clean, bright room to greet me. So, while I’ve been doing my spring cleaning I’ve also noticed I am desperately in need of a new bookcase; my current one just won’t cut it anymore. I know as soon as I get a new bookcase, however, I’m going to want to buy more books to fill it with. Thus, I’ve decided to compile a little spring book wishlist to share the books I’ve been lusting after. Maybe they’ll inspire some new buys for you as well.
While walking around the bookstore the other day, browsing shelves of beautiful covers and interesting stories, a thought dawned on me. What makes people pick up a book and read it? We’ve always been told not to judge a book by its cover, and we’ve all done exactly that, but I began to wonder what other reasons someone has for picking up a particular book. I’ve never done a discussion post before, but I felt this would be the perfect opportunity to give it a shot.
How is it already April? It certainly doesn’t feel like it with all the cold weather the US has been hit with as of late. It’s like February has just stretched on and on and spring is nowhere in sight. I’m not a fan of the super hot weather, but it would be nice to have more cool breezes and sunny days. Regardless of the weather life still goes on and it’s time again for my monthly wrap-up and TBR post. I ended up skipping my February post because life got in the way, but the March wrap-up and April TBR is promising.
The thrilling conclusion to the Mask of Shadows duology that weaves a tale of magic, shadows, and most importantly, revenge.
As one of the Queen’s elite assassins, Sal finally has the power, prestige, and permission to hunt down the lords who killed their family. But Sal still has to figure out who the culprits are. They must enlist the help of some old friends and enemies while ignoring a growing distaste for the queen and that the charming Elise is being held prisoner by her father.
But there’s something terribly wrong in the north. Talk of the return of shadows, missing children, and magic abounds. As Sal takes out the people responsible for their ruined homeland, Sal learns secrets and truths that can’t be forgotten.
A few weeks ago I did the This or That book tag and had a blast. I’d never done book tags before and it was something I wanted to try to do a few times a month, so when I saw the Would You Rather book tag floating around I decided to give it a try as well.
Ever since I finished A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab back in January I have been obsessed with the series. I think it truly has become my all time favorite trilogy, so naturally, when Wick and Fable came out with a Shades of Magic inspired monthly box, I had to jump on it – it certainly didn’t disappoint.
