400 follower Q&A part 2 | all about food, tv, and books (also, I’m actually at 500+ followers now??)

Hey everyone!! I hope you’re all doing well. Today, I am finally doing part 2 of the 400 follower Q&A. I hit 400 followers back in the summer (July/August I think?) and I asked you guys to ask me some questions to celebrate. I got a bunch of questions, so I decided to split them into 2 posts, the first of which I did at the start of September and is all about blogging.

Now, part 2 is finally here and is going to answer the rest of the questions which are an assortment related to food, TV, and books.

The funny thing is, I actually passed 500 followers a few weeks ago so this is already kind of outdated (lol) but I am so happy to have reached yet another milestone this year. Thank y’all so much, especially since I’ve been a pretty terrible blogger since August so I really appreciate you following and sticking around anyway.

I’m going to break this post up into three sections just so it’s organized. Some of these questions are going to have pretty short answers and others are going to be more long winded, so we’ll see how long this ends up being.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

What I’ve Been Reading // a bookish wrap-up of the past 4 months

Hey y’all! Welcome back to the blog. It’s been a loonnngggg time since I’ve mentioned what I’m reading so I thought it would be good to just wrap-up all the books I’ve read in the past 4 months.

For the first few months of school, I wasn’t really reading much. But since November or so, I’ve started reading a lot more thanks to many recommendations *cough* some of which were against my will! by some friends. Most of it has been middle grade which is kind of funny to me because I have always been against the idea of reading “kids’ books”. But my opinion has changed and I think middle grade is a pretty fun genre that is kind of innocent and pretty sweet.

I also read quite a few historical fiction novels back in September and one fantasy, so it’s been kind of a diverse mix of genres not really, but let me pretend it was.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at what I’ve been reading!

reacting to my old…writing (TATMIAU pt. 3)

It’s been so long since the last installment of this, but I just feel like critiquing myself, so here we are again.


Good afternoon everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. As the title suggests, today I will be reacting to part 3 of Younger Me’s writing called Tessa and the Murder in Avon, Utah.

If you missed the first and second parts of this series, be sure to check it out because it’s really funny and also includes the previous parts of the story that I’ve already critiqued.

This always ends up being a little embarrassing but still super fun, so sit tight, and let’s see how part 3 of this disaster of a book will go!

note: me being salty or “mean” to my younger self is all in fun, so don’t take it too seriously!

The Guilty Die Twice – Spoiler Free Review // a quick legal mystery

Good morning friends! I am back today with another book review. I know, a r e v i e w! I haven’t done one since the start of August, which I guess isn’t too bad compared to before (my last review before the one in August was in April…). It just feels like forever since the last time I did one.

Today, I have a review of The Guilty Die Twice by Don Hartshorn. This was a fun and relatively short legal thriller and it made me feel super nostalgic for the genre. I liked some of the characters, really liked the plot, and I thought the ending was both cheesy, but also satisfying.

400 Followers Q&A Form + The Liebster Award #3 // ft. me being unsure as always

Hey everyone!! I hope you guys are doing great! I’m back today with the form for my 400 followers Q&A and my 3rd take on The Liebster Award.

I was tagged for the award back in January by the amazing Jane @ Blogger Books, and in total Rukky fashion, here I am finally doing it 8 months later. Many thanks to Jane for tagging me!! These questions are pretty reflective, so we’ll see how it goes.

But first, be sure to fill out my 400 follower Q&A form so I can do a Q&A!! (it’d be really sad if I get only 3 questions lol) I do have some feedback questions at the start, but none of it is required except the one where you ask me your questions. But I’d appreciate it if you gave your feedback as well! Thank you guys so much! The link is above, and I will include the form itself embedded at the end of this post.

And now, without further ado, let’s get started!
