100 Truths Tag

Guys!! I’ve been in such a book/blog slump recently, please forgive me. So I’m coming at you with this 100 Truths tag, even though some of the questions have been lost. I saw it on Sahi’s blog, and thought it looked fun 🙂

1 What’s your name?
2 Any nicknames or aliases?
My rapper name in college was Rivahs. Let’s not talk about this.
3 Your gender?
4 Your star sign?
5 How old are you?

Hardest Game of “Would You Rather” for Book Nerds

I saw this on Kristin Kraves Books and thought it looked fun! It’s created by Thrice Reads, who found these questions in a Buzzfeed article.

Would you rather have a friend who loses your books, or one who dog-ears them?

This is an  unexpectedly hard question…both of these options pain me…but I’m going with the dog-eared one. Better than losing my dear books I’ve paid good money for.

Would you rather secretly love a book everyone else hates, or secretly hate a book everyone else loves?

Love a book everyone hates! Even if I have no one to talk about it with, I’d rather have fun reading.

Not Good Enough Tag


I saw this on Kyera’s Library and thought it looked fun!! Make sure to check out her blog!

Onto the tag! I love questions that play around with personalities.


  1. You write down the names of 30 fictional characters on pieces of paper.
  2. You pick two names at a time and answer each of the 15 questions. For each question one of the two characters will be the one you believe fits best and the other is “not good enough”.



Henry FOR SURE. He’d get all the super obscure words and probably be able to win the entire contest all on his own.

The Unique Blogger Award

unique blogger.png

I was tagged for the Unique Blogger Award by J.W. Martin– thank you!! I suggest you give him a follow if you haven’t, he’s very witty and has great opinions on books!

The Rules:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you
  • Answer the questions
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award
  • Ask them 3 questions

If you had to blog about another topic, what it be?

Hmmm books are really one of the only things that I’m interested in enough to talk about forever that’ll never bore me, but if I’m ~mood blogging~ I’d say right now I’d blog about the k-pop band BTS. Because they’re my current obsession, so. I had a One Direction blog once a few years ago….it’s dead now, but it was fun while it lasted. Other than boybands, maybe photography or writing? I do love scrolling through picture blogs, looking at nice photos and learning tips…but I’m more of a consumer of photography blogs than a creator. Could be cool to give a shot, though.

  • Received an ARC and not reviewed it  

I received 3 ARCs this year and reviewed them all….one I only got halfway through before I couldn’t do it anymore, but I still sent Netgalley a review saying why I didn’t finish it, and put it on Goodreads, so I say that counts!

En route to Alaska / The Fall Book Tag


I have been BUSY recently. Too busy. I’ve managed to read one book in like, two weeks. But tomorrow I’m leaving to go on a roadtrip from Seattle to Anchorage, Alaska, and I’m very excited and hope to get some reading done while I travel.  A friend randomly called me up and asked me to help her move to Anchorage, so…how could I say no to that? I’ll be away from the internet for a week traversing the Canadian wilderness (literally camping), but hopefully when I come back I’ll feel more refreshed. I’ve been a little burnt out from posting and general online activity lately (I blame all the computer time at work).

I leave on a plane at 7:05 Saturday morning (RIP me), so I’m probably in the air as you read this 😀

ALSO it finally feels fallish outside so this tag feels appropriate. Thank you to the lovely Mischenko for tagging me for this one!! Please go check out her blog, she talks about books and music and animals and food (just to name a few things)!

This tag was created by Shanah at Bionic Bookworm, so please give her blog a visit as well! I recommend her Top 5 Tuesdays 🙂

I Dare You Book Tag


I was tagged by Hadeer for this tag, and everyone else did it like, two weeks ago and I’m lagging, but better late than never, right? Thanks Hadeer! If you don’t follow her, I recommend checking out her blog, she writes really insightful and thorough reviews, and also posts original writing!!

You must be honest
You must answer all the questions
You must tag at least 4 people

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?

When I was born my parents had this book made called “Baby’s First Book” or something along those lines, and it’s basically about bringing home a baby from the hospital, and they had it personalized with my name and the names of my relatives and whatnot. So it was like “On February 11, a bouncing baby named Stephanie came into the world! Donna and Steven were delighted. Grandma Kay thought she was the most adorable baby ever.” It’s funny to read, especially since I don’t even call my grandmother “Grandma Kay.” It’s still on my shelf, so I think it’s a safe bet.
