I always thought that I didn’t need a niche.
I was truly a niche naysayer, posting about anything and everything. But then, I realized that you guys really enjoyed when I posted about reading and writing. And I loved posting about those things too.
Those two things were why I had created my blog in the first place. So, I wondered for a while why I got away from those topics. Maybe it was because I read blogs that focused on other things, like lifestyle. Maybe it was because there were other things that I was more into. But, either way, I had stopped posting about those things.
In January, I decided to go full swing back into book blogging. That didn’t exactly happen though. My blog was as nicheless as ever. And I knew it was time to really think about it.

Hey, guys! Some of you might know that I took up the Camp NaNoWriMo challenge in April. I decided to take it up again this July. I was really excited to finally write the novel that I planned in April.
But, when July came, I found myself doing other things. There were more important things that came up, like seeing family. I also went on a five day vacation.
This meant that overall, I was not writing and therefore behind on my goal. But, I know many other people are also struggling with this. So, I decided to create a little guide to help us both out.
Let’s get started!

Bonjour! Welcome to the first in my series entitled “Chats With Rose”. After the repeated success of my “Chats With Wings”, I figured that you guys might like personal posts like that more often. And thus, ‘Chats With Rose’ was created. Chats With Rose doesn’t have a specific time that they will occur. However, I’m going to try to post one a month.
“Now that’s all very well,” you’re saying, “But what exactly are Chats With Rose.” Well, dear reader, Chats With Rose are simply posts where I’m talking with you about things that matter to me.
So without further ado, let’s get started!

What’s the worst book that you’ve ever read? If you’re like me, you know right away. You know that the plot made no sense, the characters were weak, and you were quite confuzzled throughout the whole thing. Maybe you didn’t even finish it.
There are a lot of books out there. Naturally, they can’t all be amazing. But when a book disappoints, you can do more than just rant about it.
You can learn from it.
And no, I do not mean that you can learn that you just read the worst book ever. I mean that you can grow as both a reader and a writer. You can improve from reading that book. It’s not hard to do.
So grab your pet, your pad, and your pencil, and let’s get started!

As you may have noticed, it is 2018. Since it’s the new year, you’ve probably got your resolutions and/or goals all laid out and ready to be accomplished. To us book worms, reading goals take center stage.
Reading is pretty important to the life of a book worm. It’s about 85% of what our life is made up of. Observe:
That means we need to put our reading goals first. But, how do we accomplish these seemingly impossible tasks?
Well, you could always get onto the back of a winged dog and fly to a magical library, where time stops and you can read enough of those beautiful books to accomplish your goals, then return home.
Unfortunately, I have yet to figure out a way to do that. When I do, I’ll tell you. In the mean time, there are other ways we must accomplish our goals (Though the winged dog idea is pretty cool).

If you are an avid reader, bookworm, bibliophile, or whatever name like that you consider yourself, then being in a reading slump is probably one of the worst things that can happen to you. As a person who recently experienced one, I can tell you it’s hard to get through. I lost my interest in reading. I just didn’t want to read. It was a chore, and reading shouldn’t be a chore. It is a fun hobby.
If you don’t know what a reading slump is, it’s a period of time where you don’t read, can’t read, and in severe cases, cannot stand reading for whatever reason. Maybe you are busy, or maybe you’re going through a bad time, or maybe you’re just getting over the fact that pigs can in fact fly. Whatever the reason, you probably want to get out ASAP.
Luckily, I’m here to help. I have four methods to get you out of your reading slump and back to traveling to fantasy worlds!

Welcome back Winged Wonders! I’m sorry I didn’t post on Thursday, school and life got the better of me. But, I’m back! Yay!
If you go to any school, chances are you have a book fair. It may sound simple. You buy books and you read them. Wrong!
Book fairs are so much more complicated than that. It can be hard to pick out books you want or not get distracted by posters and other things like that. That’s why I created this book fair survival guide, full of things to keep in mind while shopping at one.

Welcome back Winged Readers! (That’s what I’m calling you now) Yesterday, I went to the library to get
way too many books! I was able to check out some classics and the second book in a series, so I was very happy about that.
Afterwards, my family and I stopped at a used book store and I was able to purchase (Can you guess it?) more books! Now, I know that many book bloggers buy their books from Barnes and Noble, or Amazon, or check them out from the library. So, you all might not be familiar with used book stores.
Or, your immediate thought after hearing/reading “Used book store” is “Gasp, someone else has already read it! Which makes it ruined! So noooooooooooooo!” If that was your reaction, think again. Because today, I will be sharing with you some reasons to love used book stores!
