The Get to Know Me Tag

Hello everyone! Today I am back with a tag. I haven't done a tag in a while, but I thought it would be fun. It's the end of semester in three weeks, so after then I'll be focusing on my blog a lot more. Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx tagged me - she's really cool, you should totally check out her blog! This tag is all about getting to know me and my blog, so keep reading if you're interested.

Five-Star Predictions Update

In November of 2017, I wrote a post that listed five books I thought would end up being five-star reads. The books I chose were Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, Renegades by Marissa Meyer, Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson, The Comfort Zone by Sally Thorne and Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. It took me a while - because I forgot about the books I chose - but I have finally read the books (except for one, which isn't my fault!). 

April Wrap-Up

In April, I was stressed a lot about uni and because of that, I started to blog significantly less than I used to. This time last year I was blogging around three times per week and now it is once per week. At the very end of the month I also, strangely, fell quite ill. I don't get sick very often, so it was very weird. I had the flu (I think?) and couldn't really get out of bed for a few days. Aside from that, I had an all right month. 

Answering My Blog’s Search Terms

Today I have a bit of a random post. There is a feature on WordPress that allows you to view what others have searched to get to your blog, but most of the time it says 'unknown search term.' Out of almost two years of blogging, I have only been able to view eleven terms. Some of them are funny, so I thought I would answer them in this post.

Writing Update and Camp NaNoWriMo

Writing, for me, comes and goes in waves, but recently I have been getting back into my personal writing. I say 'personal' because I have to do a bit of writing for school and I feel like it doesn't really count. I have already worked on two different stories this year - unfinished, obviously - and I have liked setting aside about an hour each night to spend writing. Granted, I do not do this every night, but it has been therapeutic and good to put my writing into practice.
