I meant to post this tag on Valentine’s Day. Then, life happened. So, this post is arriving in your reader 3 days late. XD 😉 But, anyways, today I will be doing the Rip It or Ship It tag. I’ve done it once before, about a year and a half ago, and had a great time.
The Rip it or Ship It tag is all about ships! Sticking two characters from different books together and seeing if they’d make a good couple. If they do you ship it, if they don’t you…um…rip it. I wrote down the names of ten female characters and put them in one pile and wrote down the names of ten male ones and put them in another pile.
Each pair was made by randomly selecting one piece of paper from each pile. If I pulled two characters from the same book, I re-picked. I tried to spread the love between popular books and not so popular ones.
This tag always produces some interesting results, so let’s get started!
Oh, and I hope you enjoy a bit of snowy day bookish photography to go along with the post.
This post contains minor spoilers for multiple books.

Let’s get started!

Bookworms disagree on all sorts of things, whether it be book ratings or bookmarks vs dog ears. But, there is one thing we all agree on. And that is the fact that being a bookworm comes with many struggles.
I’m very excited to post this because this a collab with the amazing Olivia from Purely Olivia. She is fantastic, always writing great posts or leaving sweet comments. She usually posts about books, but she also does some lifestyle posts.
When I asked her about collabing, she immediately agreed and put forth the idea that we write about bookworm struggles. It was perfect!We will each be sharing 5 struggles in order to show you ten that all bookworms have.

Hi guys! Happy Tuesday and Happy July! Today, as the (Very long) title implies, I’m going to be talking about my reads for the first half of the year. I probably should have posted this in June like everyone else, but better late than never, right?
I’ll be sharing my favorites, least favorites, books I want to read, and everything in between! I’ll be doing this with the help of the dramatically titled Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag.

Some of my long time readers might know that my first post was my Top 4 Favorite Books. I posted that today in 2017. I thought that it would be fun to make this kind of a tradition. So, every year on June 26, you’ll see 4 more of my favorite books. 🙂
Just a note, these are in no particular order. I can not pick favorites out of my favorites. No. I just can’t! Okay, now we can proceed to the first book:

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!

Happy February, Winged Wonders! I hope you all had a great start to your year! I had a pretty good one, but I’ll talk more about that in an upcoming Chats With Wings post.
So, if there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m a bookworm. I read 24/7, 365 days a year. Okay, maybe not. But, close enough. Just like my fellow bookworms, I have things people do that annoy me, like talking to me while I’m trying to read. But that can be tolerated. Today, I’m talking all about things that you should never ever ever ever ever ever do to a bookworm. AKA, bookworm faux pas.
For those of you unfamiliar with French, a faux pas is basically a big mistake. As in, you are making a big mistake by doing these to a bookworm.
Let’s get started.

The countdown continues……
I’m really excited for today’s post! I will be sharing some awesome quotes from star Wars and telling you what they mean, how to use them, and how to live by them.
1. Do. Or Do Not. There Is No Try. -Yoda
Yoda says this to Luke during his Jedi Training. What this is saying is to put your best effort and go 100% for everything. Don’t just try it, excel. (This is starting to sound like a shoe commercial) So to quote Nike,
Just do it
You can easily use this one in every day life. For example, if some one on your sports team is not putting in enough effort, tell them this quote to inspire them to not just try, but to do.
As a book worm, you can use this when you want to red x amount of books in a year. Don’t try to read 100 books, do read 100 books.
2. Chewie, We’re Home-Han Solo
In The Force Awakens, Han says this when he and Chewie get back to the Millenium Falcon. This line is so good. Basically, what it’s talking about is the feeling of going home for the long time in a while. If you were on vacation, you might start to miss home. This is how you feel when you get home again.
You use this when you walk through the front doors to your house in any situation. Back from school? Grocery store? Library? Use it. As a bookworm, use it when you re-read your favorite series.
3. May The Force Be With You-Traditional Jedi Saying
This is said many times throughout the movie saga, and it’s a great quote. It’s like saying “Good luck”, but it sounds a lot cooler! You use this quote whenever your friend is leaving the room. Call out “May The Force Be With You!” As a bookworm, you can use this when you’re friends are going to the library and hoping to find good books. As a blogger, use it at the end of a blog post.

May The Force Be With You!
