Yallfest: The Massive Haul

Good. Lord. I walked away from Yallfest with so much book swag.

I mean…look at all of that. That’s not even the whole haul.

Seeing as this is my first Yallfest experience, I wanted to document as much as possible, including all of the stuff I got while there!

(For those of you who know very little about the YA book world, I’ve included some nifty links to help you out along your journey. 😃 )

Yallfest 2016!

Yallfest happened…and it was absolutely amazing.

If you’ve never been to Yallfest I would highly recommend it and if you’ve never heard of Yallfest, here’s a link to their website!

Yallfest is book related, so I decided that making a blog post about it would be a great way to document my Yallfest adventures!

I was so happy to be able to attend this year, especially with my dad. He’s also an author and reader, so it was a lot of fun to have him tag along and explore Yallfest with me.

Without further ado, here’s the first of my two Yallfest blog posts!

NaNoWrimo Week 1 Wrap-Up!

Well, it’s November…which means that it’s time for NaNoWriMo!

For those of you who don’t know, NaNoWriMo is a non-profit organization that challenges you to write a 50,000-word novel by the end of the month.

Crazy, right? 

Maybe. Regardless, I’m still going to give it a go!

I know that there are a ton of other people doing it this year, as well.
If you’re doing it, I’d love to hear about your writing process and your progress! Part of the reason that I’m sharing mine online is to connect with other people who are also participating.

Without further ado, here’s what happened in my writing world, this week.

Was this Book just a Cash-Grab? || A *spoiler free* review of CutiePieMarzia’s “Dream House.”

I’ll start off by saying that I went into this novel without knowing anything about it.

All that I knew was that Marzia Bisognin had written it and that unlike other YouTuber novels, this wasn’t a memoir. That was enough to make me interested.

I think Marzia is a very creative and talented person. I love the content she makes, I think her personality is cute and charming, and I love the clothing and art that she has designed and shared with her viewers.

All of that being said, I am very disappointed with this book.

Writing Playlist 1: Fantasy

I’m constantly looking for new music to listen to while writing. I’m pretty picky about what I listen to while I write, honestly, so when I find a song that works for me I tend to hold on to it.

That inspired me to start making a series of posts with album/song/general music suggestions for writing per genre, with a link to a Spotify playlist that I often listen to.

First up: Fantasy
