Customized Archive Gadget (Blogger)

Do you ever feel limited with Blogger? Like you can’t have all the cool stuff? Well, hopefully today I can help you feel a little more content with Blogger. Customizing for Blogger isn’t always easy, especially when the code is created “behind the scenes” so you can’t really change the HTML. If you’ve been following Ashley@NoseGraze, you’ll know that she recently released a new expanding archive widget for WordPress! IT IS SO COOL. I was envious of the archive widget she had on her blog for the longest time! SO happy that she released it to all of us :) Unfortunately, I can’t make the Blogger archive gadget as cool…

Review and ARC Giveaway! – Tonight the Streets Are Ours

My Thoughts Tonight the Streets Are Ours caught me by surprise. I thought this would be some type of feel good romance, but it’s really not. In fact, romance isn’t the focus of this book, love is and how we love one another. Arden is our main character and, as the description states, she is recklessly loyal. What that really means is that Arden goes above and beyond for the people she loves. She lives at home with her mom, dad, and younger brother, Roman. Her best friend and next door neighbor’s name is Lindsey and, of course, Peter is the author of Tonight the Streets Are Ours blog. Arden was…

Blog Commenting Avatars

Let’s start out with this question: What do you remember more often of someone you just met? Their face/appearance or their name? I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m HORRIBLE at remembering names. It’s really embarrassing sometimes, BUT I’m really good at remembering faces. Who are you again? So what does this have to do with blogging? Well, how much do you want to be remembered as a blogger? How recognizable are you to other bloggers? When you think of another blogger, what comes to mind? For me, one of the first things I think of/associate with a blogger is their profile image (avatar). Most of us…

Weekly Recap: July 5th – 11th

It’s time for our weekly recap! Every Saturday I’ll recap what has been happening in our lives, on our blog, and what you can look forward to for this coming week on our blog…most likely =) In Our Lives It’s been awhile since I’ve done a weekly recap post :) The busyness of the past few months has FINALLY calmed down and I actually got 4 posts this week (if you count this one)! I even scheduled two of the posts ahead of time! *pats self on back* Anyways, the beginning of this week wasn’t all that great. Monday was one of the hottest days of the summer for us…

Review: Last Year’s Mistake

My Thoughts I feel very ‘eh’ overall towards Last Year’s Mistake. I didn’t dislike it or hate it, but I definitely didn’t enjoy it all that much either. I thought the pacing was pretty good. I read it within a 24 hour period while I was laying out on the beach and then later at night to finish it up. The book alternates with before and after chapters until near the end when it’s just ‘after’ chapters. I didn’t mind the before/after chapter transitions. I think it helped move the book along and I found the ‘before’ chapters just as interesting as the ‘after’ chapters. My biggest problem with this…

Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/original feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Click the link to go to their site and see the full list. This week’s topic is top 10 hyped books I’ve never read. I’m going to split this into books I don’t ever plan to read and books I do plan to read in the future. Hype kind of scares me with that expectation set so high. Sometimes I even avoid hyped books for that very reason. It feels like EVERYONE LOVES THEM. So what if I don’t? I never know what to do when I tell someone I enjoy reading YA books and…

How on Earth Do You Organize Your Goodreads To-Read Shelf ?!

Before book blogging, I wasn’t friends with anyone on Goodreads. It was just a way of keeping track of books. Now that I am friends with quite a few people on Goodreads, one of the things that shocks me the most is how large people’s to-read shelves are. Some of you have hundreds upon hundreds of books on your Goodreads to-read shelf, some even above a thousand! I see that, and I’m like… Not only do people have HUGE to-read shelves, they add tons of shelves with crazy/random names. It’s more like a tagging system than a shelving system. My question is, HOW ON EARTH DO YOU KEEP THAT ALL…
