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!

2017 Reading Goals - Update

Now that we're more or less halfway through 2017, I decided that it's about time to do a little update on how well Em and I are doing with the reading goals we made for ourselves at the beginning of 2017. We didn't make our goals extremely specific. All we did was choose a number based on how much we wanted to read and what seemed reasonable based on how much we knew we had read in 2016. And now it's time to reflect on those goals... oh boy.

I honestly don't think things are going well for Em. When I asked her if she remembered her original goal, she had no clue. (It was 50 books!) But, after a few months with only one book finished at the end of each one, she had lessened her goal to a more reasonable 30. (She couldn't remember this number, either!) Drawing knowledge from my experience with my monthly goals for Reading is Inevitable, I don't think that you can do all too well if you don't remember your goals. And it looks like this is true for Em as w…

Denik's New Layflat Softcover Notebooks - Review

Hey there everyone! If you've seen our bookstagram recently, you would know that we got some amazing new Denik notebooks! Now if you've never heard the name "Denik" before then I think it's time that you know, and after you read this post go check out their website, okay? (They actually came out with a new website design, too. It's amazing.)

Denik is so much more than just a notebook/sketchbook-selling company. The word Denik describes the whole community and cause that surrounds the company, a "grassroots, artsy-eclectic bunch", as it is so beautifully described on their website. The designs displayed on the covers of their products are made by artists around the world, no matter who they are or where they come from. With the income from the notebooks and sketchbooks they sell, Denik gives some to support these artists and to build schools for children around the world. The whole idea that Denik is built upon is that, together, art and people can …

All the Books I Own But Have Not Read (Part 1)

As of Wednesday, June 21st, summer is officially here. Ah: summer. That season when the sun comes out and kids get off from school. And, yes, while this does sound nice, this also means that it's going to be really hot and you're going to have so much time on your hands that you won't know what to do with it. Lucky for me, however, I also happen to own a whole bunch of books that I haven't yet read.

That's reasonable, though, right? Us bookworms find it a little hard to buy just one book when going to the bookstore, and since you kinda have a reputation for loving books, there's a good chance that you'll receive two or three books around holidays and birthdays. And you don't even want to get me started about book sales. Therefore, the books just start to pile up a bit. And while you'd love to read them, school and/or work and just life in general gets in the way.

However, the school year ended quite a bit ago. Summer vacation has begun. I finally h…

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.)
