Reasons Why You’ll *Love* Annie’s Bookmarks – Shop Feature

Do you love hand drawn bookmarks and stickers from underrepresented fandoms that could help someone in need?

Same.

I’m actually very particular about my bookmarks. When it comes to bookish merch, if I don’t love it, I don’t buy it. I’m much more of a minimalist, and I don’t need things I don’t love and won’t use.

This is just to preface the fact that I genuinely love this company ๐Ÿ˜‚ so you should too

Avatar: the Last Airbender Book Tag \\ my childhood in a book tag

There are a lot of good TV shows.

But there’s very few great shows, and even less flawless shows. Guess which category ATLA falls into.

(hint: the last one)

For those who don’t know, I love the The Last Airbender, and I’ve been wanting to do this tag for a long time but I’m a procrastinator and now I am! Also, like, feel free to answer the questions along with me and comment them below!

What Happens When You Loose Interest in Everything

Hey Guys.

So I’ve been gone for a while. Even my Instagram has been pretty inactive (relatively speaking). And I’ve been thinking about why, and what I should say to you all.

Chances are, not many people will read this, (that’s what happens when you disappear for a month apparently), which is fine. But for those who care, or who are going through something similar, here’s what’s going on.

I’m no longer interested in anything. I don’t know why. At first I thought it was because I finally started at my full-time job. I love my work, but it’s tiring. But now I’m used to it and I don’t know why I just don’t care about anything.

The only thing I can think of is that I’m not writing like I should. This happened to me a few years ago, in 2017, when I didn’t write for a year. I couldn’t enjoy any book, didn’t do photography, and generally didn’t do anything. When I’m creatively blocked, it’s hard for me to do anything.

And it especially sucks because it’s very hard for me to find motivation to write. I have good ideas, and plans, but no motivation.

BUT!

The good part is that I was lucky enough, thanks to my job, to be able to afford a new computer of my own. This might seem irrelevant, but now I have a new energy to write posts like this, and to write without lagging on a desktop. I’m so, so excited to use this thing.

Is my theory about writing right? IDK. But now I have the motivation to find out, and I intend to talk about books and interact with you all like I love to do.


How have you all been? Anything exciting happened to you recently?

LGBTQ+ Books to Read for Pride Month | pt. 2

I recently wrote a post with LGBTQ recs, but I intentionally didn’t include some favorite books, just so the post wouldn’t be too long.

Disclaimer: All of these books have LGBTQ+ main characters. It’s always nice when a side character, or a character who doesn’t get a POV chapter, is apart of the community, but it means so much more when the main characters are the ones who make you feel represented.

LGBTQ+ Books to Read for Pride Month | pt. 1

So I meant to have more Pride Month posts up by now, then I took an unintentional hiatus.

But! I have been reading a lot of LGBTQ books. And I have even more to recommend. I google a lot of posts like this one in June, to add to my tbr like that’s really needed, so I wanted to write my own.

And it’s specifically fantasy, because that’s really all I read.

The Prince and the Dressmaker \\ spoiler-free graphic novel review

The Prince and the Dressmaker

Title: The Prince and the Dressmaker

Author & Artist: Jen Wang

Publisher: First Second

Genre: fantasy


This book was recommended to me by Sam (@somebooksandramblings), I think, and I didn’t really know what to expect.

I didn’t read the synopsis before I started, so I really had no idea what to expect when I opened it.

Turns out, it’s a story with relatable characters that are full of heart, gorgeous dresses, and 100% love is love vibes (my rainbow self is here for it ๐Ÿ˜Š)
