Dear Readers - An Apology

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016
Received on Friday, October 28th, 2016

Dear Readers,

I'm sorry for not keeping the blog alive this past month. Will you forgive me?

I messed up this month. Big time. Not only did I mess up towards the end of September, but for the majority of this month, I didn't write or prepare any blog posts for you. I don't really know how many people read or care about this blog, but for the small audience that I probably (or hope I) have, I would like to apologize. No content for a bit over three weeks? I know I would be going mad if that were to happen to some of my favorite blogs.

What happened? What caused me to not write blog posts? Well, I can't really say. I guess it had to do with school, for one thing. It can be busy at times, and weekends are usually for relaxing or for meeting up with friends, and while I suppose I could have used some of my free time for blogging rather than reading or blankly scrolling around bookstagram, I did not.

I should have tried more. I really should have. And, sure: this blog is just for fun, right? But isn't this good practice for skills I'll need in the future? Skills such as planning? Marketing? (Who knows if I'll actually need that one, though.) Writing?

I apologize. I'll try to do better this next month.

  1. This is from your BESTIE, Saloni. I like this blog. It is very cool. Also you're practically famous. Which makes me practically famous by association. Thanks, I guess... tee-hee.
    P.S. Sorry but I wasn't sure how to make this not by "unknown..." But this is Saloni. Trust me; nobody else would come up with a name like that.
    P.P.S. My regards to JuJu and Emily (I still need to come up with a nickname for you!)

This Month's Popular Posts

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.)

Book Review: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Title: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Author: Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Genre: Realistic Fiction, YA Fiction
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ★★★★★
Reviewer: Julia

Dante can swim. Ari can't. Dante is articulate and self-assured. Ari has a hard time with words and suffers from self-doubt. Dante gets lost in poetry and art. Ari gets lost in thoughts of his older brother who is in prison. Dante is fair skinned. Ari's features are much darker. It seems that a boy like Dante, with his open and unique perspective on life, would be the last person to break down the walls that Ari has built around himself. 

But against all odds, when Ari and Dante meet, they develop a special bond that will teach them the most important truths of their lives, and help define the people they want to be. But there are big hurdles in their way, and only by believing in each other — and the power of their friendship — can Ari and Dante emerge stronger on the other side. the book's synopsis

Dear Readers - I'm Taking a Break

Hi, everyone. I guess you've read the title by now, which means I've got some explaining to do. As you may or may not know, I've been writing on this blog for somewhere around a year and a half now. In the beginning, I was very involved. I hadn't had an active blog for a few years, and the whole thing felt new again. I started out by writing book reviews on books I had recently read, and from there had time to finish other books and write reviews on them. And things were going well in the beginning. Even though Em dropped out after a short bit of time, I still kept this blog going. 
And then something happened. 
I just... started getting busier. I had less time to write posts and I had less books to review as I started reading less. I started to take these unannounced breaks where I'd just disappear for a bit. During those times I wasn't even sure myself when I'd come back to blogging, but I'd always come back at some point. Usually I'd be bored on…

September 2017 Reflection

Happy Friday everyone! How was your September? Good, I hope? What about your October? Can you believe we're already in October, and that we're even approaching our first complete week of it...? It's now the sixth of October and the first Friday of the month, which means it's time for yet another monthly reflection, in which I pretty much just ramble on about what happened this month as well as what's to come. Oooo... be excited. (It's okay you do whatever you want to do!)

Looking Back Into September The Blog Blargh. Blargh blargh blargh. So, the blog. It didn't do horribly, but things could have been better. (At least it was better than the bookstagram, but I'll get to that in a bit, heh heh...) I had to switch over to my school posting schedule, even though I would have liked to try to keep up two posts a week for at least one more month. But, alas, school is just too much. I mean, I couldn't even handle posting once a week. That's right, I mi…
