An Explanation

I haven't been a particularly active blogger lately. You can probably tell that from the fact that it's now more than a week into April and my March wrap-up isn't up yet. And as much as I'd like this post to say that this was a short-term thing and that I'll be back to posting multiple times a week starting now, I can't do that.

Why not? There's the fact that I'm a lot busier right now than I thought I would be. I thought that second semester senior year was supposed to be easy, but there's just so much going on right now that I can't find the time I want to write new posts.

There's also the issue that writing is taking me a lot longer than it used to because of another fun development of the past few weeks: I have tendinitis. I injured myself playing piano right before my school band's competitive season. I'm supposed to be using my left hand as little as possible, which includes both piano and typing. I can type one-handed, but it takes me about three times as long as normal typing. Not as much time to write + slower typing = not very many posts.

I didn't think I'd need to make a post about this because the tendinitis was supposed to be cured in a week. I figured that I'd still be busy, but that the bigger of my two problems would be solved. But then I wasn't pain-free for a week and a half. And after another week, it got even worse than it was before. I'm going to be seeing a hand specialist soon, but I still have no idea how long it will last. That means I'll be typing slowly for the foreseeable future.

I'm still going to be as active in the blogging world as I can. That just probably won't be as much as before.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about the tendinitis! D: You should definitely put your health first - rest up and I hope the pain will be gone very soon. Good luck with school, and I'll continue to keep an eye out for your posts!

    1. Thank you! I've been resting a LOT - frustrating, but it'll be worth it.

  2. Oh no, I'm sorry about your hand! That's got to so annoying. You don't realize how much you use your hands until it's difficult and painful to use one of them. I hope you feel better soon!!!


    1. Thank you! There's definitely about a million things that I didn't realize required using two hands. I've managed to get creative and find ways to do some of them, though!

August Wrap-Up

I'm having a bunch of weird feelings about it being the last day of August right now. I mean, I love autumn, and I'm SO EXCITED that summer is coming to an end because it means cooler temperatures and flannel and pumpkin-flavored things and pretty colors, but at the same time...there's just no way that today's the last day of August. That's not a thing that's happening right now in my head. It's just not. I think I'm stuck near the end of July somewhere.

And with the end of August comes the end of summer break. Within a week, I'll be starting my second year of college! Equal parts exciting and intimidating. The week or so is definitely going to be hectic, what with moving and such, so any posts I manage to get up will be scheduled in advance.

August was a pretty great reading month for me - I was actually hoping to get a bit more in, considering it's my last month of 2017 without classes, but I think I still did rather well. And in terms of star …

Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017

So, I haven't posted since the beginning of the month, because finals totally destroyed me. But I'm here now! And for the gazillionth time in four months, I'm saying that I'm gonna get back onto a normal posting schedule. But for now, I have plenty of things to post this week since it's one of my favorite times of year - wrapping things up at the very end!

Yes, it's nearly the end of 2017. And personally, I will not be sorry about kissing this year goodbye. I've had a pretty good reading year, and not a bad personal year! But 2017 as a global phenomenon has not been great, and I don't think I'm alone in that sentiment. It's made me really want to focus on the good this year, especially in the form of books! So without further ado, here are my top ten books I read this year.

10. LADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare (The Dark Artifices #1): Based on all the other Cassandra Clare books I've read, I was in no way expecting this to make it onto my favo…

Ten Books I Want My Cousins to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme: Ten Books You Want Your Children/Godchildren/Young Relatives/Etc. To Read.

Hi, everyone! *waves* Long time, no post. School kind of...ate me. But I'm back, at least for today. I don't know what I'm going to do about a consistent schedule, and I don't know whether I'm going to really start back now, but here I am. And what better place to start than a Top Ten Tuesday?

When I saw this week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt, my mind immediately went to my cousins, specifically the ones that are closest to my age. I have a feeling that the books I picked are more YA than a lot of other people's lists, because my cousins aren't all that little anymore! I'm the oldest of that group, and I love them dearly even though I don't get to see them a lot. There are so many books out there that I think they'd enjoy or that I think would be valuable for them to read (or both), so …
