Bookstagram 101

So you’ve finally made the decision to make a Bookstagram. You want to share your love for books with the rest of the world. That’s great! But, now what? Even before posting your first picture, I think it’s important to ask the following questions to yourself:– Do you want to stick to a theme?– What kind of editing apps will you use?– How often will you post? I personally like having a consistent theme for a while, so if that’s your jam too, I suggest investing in some cool props! My favorite places to buy props are Michael’s, AC Moore,…

How I Edit My Pictures 2.0

Hello lovely readers! I thought it was about time I do another “how I edit my pictures” post, since by now I’ve completely revamped my theme.

Shadow and Crow: a review

You will remember that a few months ago I posted a review of Silver and Bone by Claudia Cain, which I ended up liking so much, that I read it in two days and decided I needed the sequel, Smoke and Mirrors immediately after. Like in a way that you can’t continue living if you don’t have the next book right now. So when Claudia asked me to read and review the third and final book, Shadow and Crow, I obviously said yes. It came out today, Friday 13th, which is a great day to publish a book about vampires…
