What To Expect (When You're Expecting Bookish Posts)

It's been a long time since I posted a good quality review and that saddens me. But the truth of the matter is that I just haven't been reading as much as I should like to be... And I am horrible at time management. I just realized that I hadnt updated my description for TWO YEARS... 

As a way to get back into my bookish blog I am making a ,it's of things to expect out of my blog, and I'm giving a rough schedule of what to expect in the weeks to come.

 

-book hauls (as is appropriate)

-monthly/weekly wrap ups (if possible)

-book comparison and contrast on Sunday

-if you like this you'll like this on Wednesday

-book reviews on Friday

(This is a rough schedule. Please understand that sometimes time will not permit me to post.)

 

i will ill try my hardest to follow this and than you for being patient with me in my absence! ❤️

School Related Update!

I have made it through my first week of high school, all in one piece and without any major anxiety attack!! Even though the entire first day was just like one long attack, I had to talk myself out of them ever five minutes.

I'm hoping now that I'm settled in to get some reading done and some reviews up, and maybe post some random book related stuff!

I might even get to that tonight!

Week day updates will be nearly impossible seeing as I have soccer, and for some reason history and science both in the same semester.  This means I'll be doing some major studying!  But I'm going to try to post ever Friday, Saturday and the occasional Sunday!
