Sometimes I look back at my old posts and consider deleting everything. But I don't because...I don't know. There are those random posts that have hundreds of views (not including my own of course) and I get all happyish inside and think "wow I'm so popular," and then there are those posts with zero views and zero comments that make me think it might as well have never existed. I do like to see how I've improved. I sounded like such a child 3 years ago.

And I guess I was. I was 16. And that was okay at the time. It was really how my 16 year old self felt about novels specifically made for my age group and up. Also, at the time, I was reading "okay" novels.  Now I don't have the luxury of reading books that will just be "okay." I need amazing because amazing is the only thing that will persuade me to lose two hours of sleep on a school night.

So. If you know any amazings, let me know.

I've Read Some Things

I have. I really have. It's just that the process of reviewing them takes so long. So I tend to just stick with the rating system on Goodreads and nothing more. This summer I read a lot. A LOT. And yet, there has been no sign of my progress. Dah well.

I just picked up The New Jim Crow from my school library and am extremely excited to read it. I also was reading the second Game of Thrones book (Clash of Kings maybe?) but had to return it to the library because I got immersed in organic chemistry and had to choose between the kingdoms and my gpa. I'll probably end up purchasing it though...

Actually, looking back, I didn't read as much as I thought I did. Sorry for leading you on, only to let you down at the end of this post.

I'll talk to you when I talk to you.

I forgot I had a blog...

Well. I will not say "I'm back!" because who knows when I will drop off the face of the earth for about two years. But I am alive and well.

I did, in fact, forget I had a book blog. I remembered today and decided to check up on things. I seriously was not expecting my blog to have so much traffic when I have not updated it for about two years. I will try to get back into the swing of things. I still read! I don't make videos anymore because my camera broke and I still have yet to replace it.

I'm realizing that I have to do a massive overhaul on my blog. Like. Man. For one, I do not wear those white glasses anymore. My hair has also gotten a lot longer. There are also a lot of links to blogs that don't work or are no longer being updated. I think everyone has moved to tumblr...maybe I'll get with the flow and do that...or WordPress. I'll keep you posted.

I think the main reason I stopped updating was because I got into a HUGE reading slump. It would take a lot for me to pick up a book and read. I loved reading about people reading, looking for new books to read, and watching people talk about reading. But when it came time for me to actually READ, I ran into some trouble. That lasted for about a year. And then I started college. That explains much of my absence. I still don't read as much as I used to but I've gotten a lot better.

I will be sure to let you all know if I will be switching to WordPress. I feel like I need a fresh start so that is a good possibility.
