Hello friends and new friends! I am so happy to be announcing our newest event within Bookend Events today!

Books That Have Changed Lives

As 2019 has been going and resolutions are being enacted and lives are changing in huge and subtle ways– I’ve realized that a lot of who I am is because of the books I read. This train of thought had me wondering what books could I pin point to say have changed me the most? Which lead me to wondering what books have changed the lives of others?

Enter in this post.

I want to highlight the books that have inspired those to lead a better life, whether that be inwardly or outwardly. I want to give those books a moment to change others lives and let them shine just as they have done with the people below. With this in mind, I took to Social Media and Discord asking book bloggers and book lovers from everywhere to share their books and their stories. With that said, thank you to everyone who wrote in and shared their stories with me! It meant so much to me to read all of your responses and see the different books that shaped you and your life! Continue reading “Books That Have Changed Lives”

February Wrap Up

These past 28 days have bless my soul completely for one reason and one reason alone.

The Jonas brothers released new music last night.

None of you know this, but I stan those three brothers like a flower stans the sun. It’s ridiculous. If you follow my personal instagram– which you should follow both of my accounts, because I am seriously a time and a half in stories— (@sammers65), you would have known just how ecstatic and stupid excited I was for their new music to drop…and boy when they drop it….mah heart.  My crops were revived last night and my outlook has changed on the world. What a time to be alive.

Reading wise (probably the real reason you clicked on this post in the first place and not to hear my middle school heart gush) I read a lot of great books this month, which is shocking because of how the short the month is and my busier than usual schedule these pass couple of weeks, and the fact I was heading for a reading slump doozy back at the end of January.

February has been real good to me fam.

January Wrap Up

We are officially a month into 2019 and so far it hasn’t been to shabby for me! I have taken my resolutions to heart this time around and actually have kept with them? I know I am shocked too! I’ve gotten a grip on my eating habits (so far) and I’m slowly working myself back up to running material–which I hope to start integrating back this month.

Reading wise, for me though, this month has been a low-key doozy, I did a lot of re-reads solely because I felt myself inching into a reading slump–which is no bueno when Netgalley decides to approve a bucket load of books for you–so I haven’t really pushed myself in the reading area much just because I didn’t wanna dive head first into the abyss of slumps.

Nonetheless though, I got a decent amount of books read within the last 31 days!  Continue reading “January Wrap Up”
