reacting to my old…writing (TATMIAU pt 2)

in this post: Younger Me continues to be a rather cringy writer

honestly, what else did I expect?


Welcome back to this series, friends!! I hope you’re doing well.

In the first post of this series, I shared the stats of this story that Younger Me wrote and some backstory regarding my love of writing and what I told stories about as a child. I also dissected the first 2 pages and a third of this book that I called Tessa and the Murder in Avon, Utah. I think it was a pretty funny post, so if you missed it, go give it some love!

I’m not going to make this a lengthy intro, so let’s get right into the second part of this disaster!

(in case you didn’t realize, this is all in fun and me being salty or super critical is part of it! don’t worry, i still love and cherish 10 yro Younger Me no matter how embarrassing she was ❤)

Why I love history & historical fiction // ft. some recommendations

*cue Victorian British accent*

Good day dear bookish friends! Welcome back to my little corner. I hope you have some tea, because it would be a bore to read this without some! Add a little cookies too; don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone!

Today, I shall be speaking with you all regarding my love for historical fiction, a wonderful genre full of interesting stories, quaint times, and dazzling characters. I will also be enlightening you, as well as myself, on the problems of the past and why loving this genre may not necessarily be for you.

And of course, to wrap it all up, I shall share some lovely reads from these bygone eras that I think would warm your little hearts.

Let us begin, shall we?

Get to know me by my bookish habits and favorites // The Who Am I? Book Tag (round 2)

I’ve already done this before, but I’m still going to do it again.

A lot of things have changed since my first time doing this nearly a year ago (will be exactly a year this Saturday) and I now have some new favorites and possibly a whole new outlook on life, so I’m curious to see how my answers will differ this time around.

Many thanks to the amazing Nikki @ The Night is Dark and Full of Books for tagging me! (and I’m so sorry for taking 6 months to finally do this!!)

Let’s get started!!

Reacting to my old…writing // aka embarrassment time! (TATMIAU pt. 1)

Hey there wonderful people and welcome back!! Today, I’m going to be reacting to my old writing from some years back that I wrote when I was around 10/11 years old.

This will be fun.

And by fun, I mean I’m going to die of embarrassment.

Before we get started, a big shout-out to Ash @ Starlight Strands for pretty much making me decide to do this! (Go check her out!! Her blog is gorgeous, her posts are amazing and hilarious, and I assure you that you will not be disappointed!!) I’d been thinking about writing a “reacting to my old…” series, and then I saw her post where she reacted to her past writing, so I decided to go ahead and just do it too.

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