April 2016 Reflection

April has been our second month working on the blog! It was a fun month, and we love sharing some of our favorite books with you.

Goals for next month

Our goals, or at least my goals for next month our the following:

  1. Make blogging less of a chore. Blogging is supposed to be a fun experience where you can share your opinion. Recently, blogging hasn't been fun for me (ex. this post). I really love blogging, but it seems like when I have to do it quickly because I have no ready posts, that's when I procrastinate doing it. That is why I really need to stock up posts!
  2. Have a couple of posts stocked up (reasons stated in previous goal)
  3. Have pictures ready! Even if the post isn't ready, it is always good to have pictures to put in the post and promote it on Instagram.

Favorite Posts of April

One of my favorite posts of April is my review on Made You Up. It is my favorite book, so obviously I love it!

Another one of my favorite posts is Julia's post on In the Time of the Butterflies. It seems like a great book that I should totally read!

Posts Posting in May

One of the posts that I am looking forward to in May is Julia's review on The Light Between Oceans, publishing on Monday, May 9th. She read it recently and is absolutely obsessed with it! She can't wait for the movie to come out.
Another post that I am looking forward to is my review on Everything Matters!, publishing on the 6th. It is probably my second favorite book, and it is so original. I love it!

I hope you enjoyed our April Reading Reflection!


  1. Can't wait to see your new posts! I also love the photos you've been using on your blog and Instagram page! Good stuff!

This Month's Popular Posts

Quotes: The Nightingale

I realized that, over a year ago, I wrote a post called "Quotes: Audacity", and that this post did really well (it's actually Reading is Inevitable's most read post!), and yet I never wrote another post of quotes from a book. I liked writing that post, too. I like sharing quotes I like from books. That's why I started doing it on our bookstagram page. So why did I never write another one of these "quote blog posts"? I don't know. But I intend to write at least another one.

And that's why I'm here today. Well, there's that, and then there's also the amazing book that is The Nightingale. If you've read some of my recent blog posts or have poked around a bit, you would know that exactly a month ago I published my book review on The Nightingale, in which I explained my love for it and why you should read it yourself. And while I actually have another post in the works on that book because it definitely deserves more than one post, t…

Quotes: Audacity

As some of you may know by looking at my posts on our social media page (@readingisinevitable on Instagram), I am currently reading Audacity by Melanie Crowder. It is a beautiful book written in free verse, and follows the life of Clara Lemlich, a female Jewish immigrant who came to America in the early 1900s. (For the full summary of the book, click here.) I absolutely love books written in free verse, or any type of poetry, in fact! This book is so lovely that I have decided to dedicate a whole post to some of my favorite quotes or parts! (Note: I am only on page 294, and there are 366 pages, not including the extra content at the end of my local library's copy.)

Navigating Bookstagram - Stories & Tips From a Small(er?) Account - Instagram Business Tools

Hello, fellow bookstagrammers! Today I'm sharing with you yet another installment of the Navigating Bookstagram series, and it's all about using Instagram's business tools for bookstagram! But what exactly are Instagram business tools?

Instagram has been offering tools and insights for businesses to use since 2014, but more useful, updated tools only came out in the spring of 2016. By connecting a Facebook account to the Instagram page, users can now see analytics on each individual post and their posts as a whole, as well as information on the demographic of their followers. Additionally, if they add the feature, users can view insights on their Instagram stories.

Setting Up Business Tools
First, you'll need to create a Facebook account and/or page. Once you have a Facebook account, you can create a business page by clicking the down arrow at the top of the screen and "Create Page." From there, choose from the options they give you (below). What you pick wil…

Navigating Bookstagram - Stories & Tips From a Small(er?) Account - SFS

Hey everyone! Stressful weekend, but I still managed to get this blog post together for you. Hopefully a March 2017 Reflection will be coming up soon on Friday, one of the new changes to the posting schedule, but I have a somewhat busy week ahead of me, so we'll have to see what happens. (If you missed the details back in mid-March, then be sure to either check out the post here or visit the posting schedule page by clicking the tab above.) For now, though, it’s time to do another installment in the Navigating Bookstagram series, also know as the NBSTFSA series (I’m just kidding; no one says that). Today I will be covering shoutout-for-shoutouts. Ah: sfs’s, as they’re sometimes called. What are they? They’re exactly what they sound like: When one account shouts out another account in exchange for a shoutout from them. But what I specifically want to talk about today is entering shoutout-for-shoutout contests.

First of all, what is a shoutout-for-shoutout contest? (Warning: This i…
