My 5-Star Predictions | Books I think I’ll love

We’d all like to believe that we expect to love every book we pick up, but that’s just not the case. On this fall Friday I’m bringing to you my 5-star predictions. If you haven’t seen this going around, it was started by Mercedes of MercysBookishMusings on Booktube. She took a look at her shelves and the books on her TBR and guessed which books would get 5-stars once she read them. So I’m doing the same, and I’ll hopefully do a follow up post to see how accurate my predictions were.

Audiobooks I regret listening to | Discussion

You’d think a new blog that focuses on audiobooks would start off by talking about the audiobooks they just love, right?

~Well that’s not how I do things.~

Introduction Post

Hi all!

So, to introduce myself, I’m a journalism student at the University of Florida and, according to my mom, an aspiring J.K. Rowling. I’m starting this book blog so I can get back to what I love — reading and writing without a test coming up.

Starting soon, I’ll review books — old and new, popular and unknown (whatever Alachua County Libraries can supply). I’ll try my best to both keep you all entertained and up-to-date with the latest news in the book world.

So, without further ado….

 

Will post my first review soon!
