Blogosphere Travels #2: Dropdown Labels
Posted on December 11, 2013 in Blogosphere Travels / 0 Comments

Once again, I have some more tips and tricks I have noticed bloggers using around the blogosphere! This is a tutorial on creating dropdown labels in Blogger. Most bloggers, I’m sure, are aware of how to create drop-down menus (for labels and things), but for those of you who don’t know (old and new bloggers alike), this post is for you. First, you must download the label gadget. Then go to the Template section of your blog and click Edit HTML. You can use the ‘Jump to widget’ button to find where your labels widget code […]

While-Reading Notes: Attrition by S. G. Night

While-Reading Notes: Attrition by S. G. Night
Posted on December 9, 2013 in While-Reading Notes / 0 Comments

This is a post of notes I took while reading this eBook. It includes a few spoilers, so read at your own risk. See my review for Attrition by S.G. Night. After the first 10 pages: Wow, I just love the pronunciation key. EVERY book should have one. I want to give him 5 stars just for that without even starting the book yet. Also, his writing is amazing. QUITE descriptive, and I can tell from just the first few sentences that he is going to be great. And there is frequent use of the […]

main points Review Introduction Now I just have to start with a little introduction on how I’m going to do this review. CLEARLY this book is amazing. Just look at all the other reviews. It it clearly the best thing since sliced bread, or mashed potatoes. It may not be as widely known now, but just watch, it will soon have an empire like that of Harry Potter, Twilight, or The Hunger Games. That much is certain. No matter how you feel about the book, it is going to continue being amazing. It simply can’t […]

The Bride of Devil’s Acre by Jennifer Kohout

The Bride of Devil’s Acre by Jennifer Kohout

main points Review Intro First of all, let me just say this book BLEW ME AWAY. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. The synopsis on Goodreads didn’t give me much to go on (and boy was I surprised by how it actually turned out). And also it was a Kindle book. You know how I feel about those- not really a fan of reading on my iPod Kindle app. But it was SO WORTH IT. The beginning was kind of slow, but it picked up quite quickly and soon I could NOT PUT IT […]

Bookish Survey: Harry Potter Spells Pt. 1

Bookish Survey: Harry Potter Spells Pt. 1
Posted on December 5, 2013 in Survey / 1 Comment

This survey was created by Jasmine at Flip That Page.From her site: So how does it work? Basically, it’s a survey of sorts, where I give you a certain spell from the Harry Potter series, and you answer with the title of a book you’d like to cast the spell on. The first one, Reparo, for example, is all about… well, repair. So you answer me with a book you’d like ‘repaired’ in a way—a book that you thought could have had more potential if it was just tweaked up a bit here and there. Pretty […]

Colette by Michelina Vinter

Colette by Michelina Vinter

main points Writing Style I loved the writing. It was so simple but light and fun. It also had a slightly foreign feel to it, like the narrator didn’t speak English as his/her first language. It was charming. Content This story was full of adventure! It was nonstop action, twists and turns everywhere. It was somewhat easy to predict in some aspects, but almost impossible in others. It was definitely a fast read. It was not so much about history and WWII, but more about Colette’s relationships with others. The main theme seemed to be […]
