“Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn’t kidding about the “Forever” part.

Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who’s been dead for a century.

Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya’s normal life might actually be worse. She’s embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she’s pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend—even a ghost—is just what she needs.

Or so she thinks. Spooky, sardonic, and secretly sincere, Anya’s Ghost is a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.”

On My Shelf Tag!

bi-weekly-wrap-up-12

Random Quote of the Day: “The ability to delude yourself may be an important survival tool.” – Jane Wagner

Hello sunshines! 🔆 Two days back to back? I’m on a roll!! Today’s tag is called ON MY SHELF and it was created by Iain Broome over on Booktube, so be sure to check out the original video if you are interested! This tag looked pretty fun so let’s get started!

💬 ABOUT THE TAG:

EVERY BOOK ON YOUR SHELF HAS A STORY. The story can be how you came to own that book, how you found it for the first time, or how it made you feel while reading it.

To pick which novels to talk about, you can use a random number generator OR simply close your eyes and pick one! For this post, I am using RANDOM.ORG to pick which book number! You can do as many rounds as you like, but for today I’ll be completing FIVE rounds!! (:

BOOK #114

I thought it had an interesting concept so I was generally excited to read it, but turns out it was really slow and dry and I couldn’t get into it, lol.

Happy Bookaholic Tag!

bi-weekly-wrap-up-12

Random Quote of the Day: “Be a fountain, not a drain.” – Rex Hudler

Hello sunshines! 🔆 I actually haven’t done a tag in such a long time but I am a excited to do this one! THE HAPPY BOOKAHOLIC tag is created by about Happy Books on Youtube and it was originally posted so that we could talk about books and why/how we buy them!! This is my favorite hobby to do on my spare time and why not share it with everyone?? (:

1. WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BUYING NEW BOOKS?

Image result for buying books gifI love buying books because it makes me happy. I know this is the cliche answer that you were expecting, but it definitely does make me happy. It’s something that I look forward to — visiting the bookstore, or even shopping online. Now, this may be the reason why I am extremely broke and I haven’t bought books in a while, but the idea of buying books makes me even happier!! (:

2. HOW OFTEN DO YOU BUY NEW BOOKS?

Well, when I wasn’t AS broke as I am now, I used to buy books maybe every other month? It was crazy how much I bought books but in the end it made me HAPPY and that’s all that matters!

Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people lose in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.

Every new scar hardens Charlie’s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.”

I was really excited to read GIP because I had heard pretty good things about it, and how it has been compared with Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (a novel I thoroughly enjoyed). So when I saw it on BFB I had to request it! (:
