Armchair BEA

Hi everyone!  This year I am excited to be participating in Armchair BEA, which is a virtual version of BEA (Book Expo America), designed for book bloggers who, for some reason or another, are unable to attend the actual BEA.  
Anyway, today is the introduction day, so here goes nothing! :)

Who am I?  Wow, that is certainly a big question.  I would have to say that I am a teenage insomniac who loves words with a passion, feels music in her fingers, and has art stained into her soul.  
That sounded a little poetic, no?  But yeah, I guess that's who I am.
I've been blogging for roughly 3 and a half years!  *Yay*  I got into blogging because I was like, why not?  Haha, the real story is that my family had been listening to my ramblings for my entire life and the internet was this big large thing that I was excited to be a part of.  I'm blogging from my bed, in my room with my cats and my books in a little town by the ocean.

"I always wonder about raindrops.  I wonder about how they're always falling down, tripping over their own feet, breaking their legs and forgetting their parachutes as they tumble right out of the sky toward an uncertain end.  It's like someone is emptying their pockets over the earth and doesn't seem to care where the contents fall, doesn't seem to care that the raindrops burst when they hit the ground, that they shatter when they fall to the floor, that people curse the days that the drops dare to tap on their doors.  I am a raindrop.  My parents emptied their pockets of me and left to evaporate on a concrete slab." Shatter Me by Tajerej Mafi (Pg. 5)


I would bring The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie by Jacyln Moriarty because Bindy Mackenzie is my favorite character of all time, (besides Sirius Black) and I would love her company.  I would bring The Book Thief by Markus Zusak because it is beautiful and would remind me of my humanity when I'm alone.  Lastly, I would bring Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling because it is my favorite Harry Potter book and I would give me the most comfort.

My three non-bookish items would be my journal + writing utensil (I think that this can count as one) because I would want to record my island adventures, fooooooooooooood because duh, and my glasses so that I won't be blind.

My blog is a glimpse into my head through books, writing, pictures, and poetry.


This is my favorite Paranormal YA book ever!!!


I love this book so much!  It changed my view on YA fantasy and Fantasy in general forever.


  1. Wow such great answers! Especially your favorite quote-I LOVE every word that comes from Tahreh Mafi :)


    1. Thanks so much! Tahreh Mafi is a goddess! :D

  2. I think if I was stranded somewhere I would want Harry Potter with me too. I can re-read them and never grow tired of the story.

  3. My daughter is a huge Harry Potter fan as well. I tend toward more realistic, middle grade fiction. It's great to see the actual target demographic blogging about books! Enjoy Armchair BEA!

  4. I hear ya on the glasses!!! I often think after reading all these apocalyptic type books that I seriously need to have Lasik surgery so in the event of a zombie apocalypse or end of civilization as we know it type event I won't have to worry about my contacts and glasses. Since food and safety would be top priority and all that jazz. But sadly, it's still too stinkin' expensive!

    Great answers! I enjoyed reading them.

  5. I have yet to read any Harry Potter. I know. I know. LOL!

    My best friend keeps giving me a hard time about it. She doesn't really read middle-grade/YA books [I do read them]. She read and loved all of the Potters.

    I have been stalking The Book Thief at my library. I hope to catch it this summer.

  6. Great intro post! The Coldest Girl in Town has been on my radar...need to read it this summer. Hope you have a great week!

  7. The Coldest Girl in Town is on my TBR, as well as The Book Thief. There just isn't enough time to read everything that I would like to.
    It is nice to meet you.

  8. I loved The Book Thief movie but didn't read the book. Great to meet you!
