I’m still alive!

Hey guys!

I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA lately! I’ve been dealing with some health stuff and have been finding it difficult to sit down and focus enough to put my reviews together. But I wanted to pop in and let you guys know what’s been going on. I have been reading quite a lot though, so I have a bunch of books waiting to be reviewed and so much I need to talk about! I’ll still be on a little bit of a hiatus for now, but I’m hoping to start getting those done very soon and get back to blogging! 😀


Happy New Year!


Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you and all your loved ones have had a wonderful time this holiday season! I’ve had a chance to spend a lot of quality time with my family and it definitely was a much needed boost to my mood. I sang my 19th(!!!) Christmas Eve service with my church choir (alongside my mom in the alto section, as always!) and spent the Christmas period binge watching house reno shows, MST3K, and crazy Lifetime movies with my parents and uncle. We also celebrated my pup’s second birthday and his second Christmas with us as well! ❤ (For anyone who’s been around here for a little while, you will not be surprised at the fact that I named him Atticus!)



I also wanted to update you guys on the plans for my blog in 2020! Over the last few months my posts have been pretty sporadic. I’ve been dealing with health issues, both physical and mental, and I’ve been having a hard time getting up the energy to do much of anything. Things are still rough but I’m feeling like I can start getting back into things here. Plus I’ve read a lot lately, so I have plenty of reviews to write! I’m so sorry that I sort of disappear for a little. But I am slowly starting to ease myself back into things and I am hoping to send many more posts your way this year than I did last year! ❤

I’ve also been using my Bookstagram account a lot more lately, so here’s the link in case you’re interested in connecting on there! The Quirky Book Nerd

Let me know in the comments how your holidays went or just how you’re doing! 😀



Popping in for a Quick Update!


Hey Everyone!

First off, I want to thank all of my newest followers for joining our little family! We just passed 850 book nerds and I couldn’t be happier! And thank you to all my long-time readers for always coming back. Your support and your lovely comments never fail to make my day. I feel so lucky to not only be able to write this blog but also to have such a wonderful and supportive community. I love and appreciate every single one of you more than I could ever express and your support is so incredibly meaningful to me. So thank you all so much for sticking with me! ❤

Now, on to a few quick updates about what’s to come the rest of this month as well as in November!

I have been in a bit of a writing slump, mainly due to health/sleep issues. I have also been very focused on starting off my current weight loss journey and this new diet I’m on is working…and completely kicking my butt! 😛 However, as I am improving my body and health, I am also aiming to improve my blogging (particularly my reviewing!) and reading as well. It’s been a bit since my last review, but I have many in the works that will be coming very soon for you guys!

Here’s just some of what you can expect to see during the coming weeks:

The Dark Lord Clementine by Sarah Jean Horwitz

House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig

The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal

The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

The Monster of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Also, since I did not find out about the O.W.L.s Magical Readathon until it had passed, I was only able to do the N.E.W.T.s Magical Readathon. So I am planning to have my own little O.W.L.s Readathon during November so I can officially complete my studies at Hogwarts for the year! I’ll have my TBR for it posted at the beginning of the month. And if any of you feel up for a readathon, feel free to join me! 😀

Thank you all again for being so amazing ❤

Quick Update!

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to post a quick message to say I am still here and haven’t accidentally taken a tumble off the face of the planet!

June has not been the best of months, and it took a toll on my reading and writing. You guys are the best and you deserve the highest quality post content that I can possibly give, and I wasn’t capable of doing that these past few weeks. So I finally decided I needed to take a little mental health break to rest up and help get things back to normal. And now I feel much more recharged and ready to get back to things…starting this weekend! 😀

I apologize that I have been behind on replying to comments, but I have been reading every single one and they always bring a smile to my face. The constant support you all show me is amazing beyond words and means the world to me, and I’m am the luckiest person ever to have you guys in my life. You are wonderful, a light in the dark for me, and I love you all! ❤

See you back on here this coming week! 🙂

-Ariana ❤

Quick Update!

Just a quick note to let you guys know I haven’t gone missing! 😛 I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately and needed a brief mental break, but I will have new posts for you all this week! Thank you so much for sticking with me! 🙂 ❤

Quick Update!

Hi guys!

Just wanted to put up a quick update post to say that I promise I have not fallen off the face of the planet! To be honest, I’ve been going through a bit of an everything slump for the last few weeks, and have been feeling a bit down and unmotivated, which has affected my reading and writing. But I am still here and starting to feel better, and there will be an actual new post coming later tonight. I’ll be catching up on commenting and posting, and be getting back to a more regular schedule; I have a bunch of awesome posts planned for this month that I can’t wait to share with you all! 😀

Thank you for being patient with me! You guys are the best! ❤
