Theme Thursday: five favorite fantasy creatures

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Theme Thursday. I actually have a bunch of Theme Thursday ideas written down, but for some reason I never write the actual post! This post is about, you guessed it, my five favorite fantasy creatures. Merpeople I love a good story that involves mermaids or sirens. And no, I will not ever get sick of The Little Mermaid retellings. My favorite books so far that include these fantasy creatures are To Kill a Kingdom, Daughter of the Pirate King and Daughter of the Siren Queen. And I also love the merpeople in…

As I’m typing this I’m still enjoying the warm weather on Anna Maria island! Day 1 Our ship, The Brilliance of the Seas, would depart from Tampa, Florida at…

How to have a stress free reading year

I’ve recently realized that for some reason I’m more concerned with making my reading goals than actually enjoying books. It kind of stresses me out, and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in this. So in this post I’ll try to give some pointers on how to read, stress free! Remember who you’re reading for… … It’s you! You like books, so you read them for yourself! I’ve caught myself putting books aside, or not picking them up at all because of other people’s opinions on them. In order to read stress free I think it’s important to not be…

My Holiday Bucket List

It’s time to make my holiday bucket list for this December. There are a couple of things I’d really like to try and do this month, and I hope I get to cross off everything on this list! Try out all the outdoor ice skating rinks Some of you may know that I love figure skating. I’ve been actively practicing my somewhat graceful moves since I was 16! I love going to a good outdoor rink; they’re so festive! For this holiday bucket list, I want to try out as many as possible. Luckily Washington D.C. has quite a few…
