Book Challenge: Bookstagram made me do it! 

Happy Friday! I can not believe it’s Friday and it’s summer vacation! First day on vacation, we went to the library and went to the park. We’re off to a great start. I just hope I can keep up the momentum! 😁.

So confession: Before bookstagram, I had never heard of Funko Pops! I knowww. I don’t really have an excuse, if you count living in a cave. 😅 And I admit, I was resistant to getting them, rationalizing that I didn’t really need them and I didn’t have room. 😂 But then I got my first Funko from @owlcrate and it was Snape and eventually I also received Luna Lovegood too! I loved them! Then I won more in Juli’s Anniversary @riddlesteashoppe giveaway last year. One of them was Hermione (and she sent tea too!). And pretty much from there, I started collecting them but I’ve noticed the few that I have collected are becoming part of a really awesome girl squad. Hmm. Perhaps I should do a squad post? 🤔


Pictured are the House inspired Ravenclaw Wisdom and Gryffindor Bravery teas from @riddlesteashoppe which I highly recommend! Check out Rebecca @bibliosophy_ rep for her discount rep code! Thank you Juli for the Funkos and teas!


I hope you’re having a great Friday! What was something bookstagram made you do?

Book Challenge: Tea and Book Boyfriends

I hope you all had a great Monday! Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. No more migraines today, but I still took it easy. We’re all every excited because this is the last week of school until our spring break—just three more days! (They get Friday off!).
For #squeakybookishlibrary Alive and Dead—If it hadn’t been for Aunjuli’s tea, I wouldn’t have made it through my morning! 😅

For #watermelanerdsapril Appreciate: Coffee/Tea—Tea! If you saw my Story, I rushed to take pictures today because the light was so good. But I forgot to eat breakfast! But I made tea though. Today’s choice was from @riddlesteashoppe The Dark Prophecies Draft tea. This is a blend of almond, tiger eye, oriental spice with white peppercorn. Perfect for a Monday morning when you need to get your morning going. I love Aunjuli’s tea and if tea is your jam, I highly recommend checking out her shop. Visit my girl Natasha @shotmeinthebook for a discount code! 

For #thehamiltonedition “You walked in and my heart went BOOM” Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends—Pictured here is one of my #currentreads A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi. I loved The Star-Touched Queen and A Crown of Wishes was one of my most anticipated reads this year. I’m still reading it, but I’m enjoying it so much. Gauri and Vikram are becoming my OTP. Vikram is totally book boyfriend worthy and if I’m honest, I’m crushing on how awesome Gauri is too.😍


Wooden “Book Hoarder” bookmark is also from @riddleteashoppe! Mom Fuel mug is made by Thimblepress from Target.


Happy Mail!

Even though January was a tough month for me and my family (see previous posts), receiving happy mail helped to make it better. I have so much to share with you all! The January boxes for @owlcrate and @nerdy.post were AMAZING. Owlcrate’s theme for January was Classic Remix and Nerdy Post’s theme was Star Wars. I loved both of these boxes! I also received some cute planner stickers from @paperkumaco. Then my prizes for the 1 year anniversary giveaway for @riddlesteashoppe arrived too! Between caring for a sick family and all the rainy weather, this load of happy mail was wonderful. .

I’ve got it down in my bullet journal to take pictures of all the goodies. I’m at an age where if I don’t write it down, it won’t get done! I can’t wait to share everything with you all! 


This is a spoiler free post, but if you subscribe to either of these services, did you get yours yet? What did you think? Who else has to write everything down so they don’t forget to do all the things?

Book Challenge: Most Anticipated Reads of 2017 (So far)

For #winterwonderlandbooks16 Favorite winter beverage: In the November Owlcrate @owlcrate, we received this special tea blend from @riddlesteashoppe for the Wonderland theme. Wonderland Elixir is amazing–Ceylon, peach, apricot, vanilla, orange, with notes of marigold, ginger, cardamom, and cloves–this special tea is tied with her Ravenclaw inspired Wisdom blend for me! Aunjuli is an amazing tea mistress, so any tea she curates will be good!.

For #grimdragon Most anticipated read of 2017 (so far). This special edition Owlcrate edition of Heartless was one of my most anticipated reads this year. It’s fantastic so far and I’m so happy that it was the book for the November Owlcrate. For 2017, some of my anticipated reads:


📚A Conjuring of Light: Book 3 in the AGOS trilogy by VE Schwab

📚Strange the Dream by Laini Taylor

📚The Gatlon School for Vigilantes and Wires and Nerve Volume 1 by Marissa Meyer

📚Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh 

📚Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

📚Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Hann

📚Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

📚Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo


Wow! That was a lot more than I thought! There are a lot of other books coming out next year that are part of a series too, but I haven’t started/caught up to them yet! (I’m side-eyeing ACOMAF and Lady Midnight.) There’s just so many books to read!


Made more of a dent in my Christmas shopping today! Go me! 😏 And one of my current reads is A Monster Calls and FRIENDS, you must read this book! Absolutely heartbreaking in the most poignant way! What have you all been up to?
