Books I Want to Read Before the Year Ends

Hello book friends! This post is going to be all about the books I want to read before the year is over. I’m not going to lie, aside from the new releases coming in November and December, I also really want to tackle some of the books that have been on my shelves for ages.

I literally got it on the release date… Archenemies by Marissa Meyer – I…

Throwback Thursday: Road trip USA 2002

For this blog post, we’re going back in time a little far… 17 years to be exact. That’s when my family and I went on a road trip in the South Western USA to conclude our time living in Arizona! We saw a lot of cool things, so I decided to make a post about it! Arizona Obviously since I was seven years old at the time, I don’t remember this road trip as if it was yesterday. I will also 100% recount things in the wrong order, but the most important part is that y’all know where we went,…
