Book Review – P.S. I Still Love You

Hi guys!

So, a while ago Indigo did this thing where paperbacks were $10 dollars each, and so I picked up a couple of old favourites and new titles that looked promising. One of them was To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, by Jenny Han. I read this first in 2014 (snagged it from the library) and I loved the premise and even though it was totally predictable, it was cute and I was definitely loving the bits of culture and sisterly love scattered throughout. Naturally, when I saw that the sequel, P.S. I Still Love You was also part of this Indigo sale, I had to grab that too. Unfortunately, I wasn’t impressed.

How Do I Study for an English Exam?

Hi guys!

I know you haven’t heard from me for a long time, but like I said in my first post – I kind of suck at commitment. I’m working on it. Anyways, last month I wrote AP exams, and now I’m writing finals (I’m a high school senior). A lot of my friends have science and math exams, and while the content for those is hard to grasp, studying them is a cakewalk – it’s just memorization, repetition, and practice. But what about English? “How do I study for English?” literally everyone in my AP English class asks. “If I’m not literate by now, I’m never going to be literate!” Well, my friends, as a pretty damn good English student myself, I’m going to explain to you how to study for an English exam.

Tea Haul – May 1st 2017

Hi friends!

So, I’m sure you guys have all gotten a bit of a taste of my bookishness, but something else I’m really into at the moment is tea. Recently DAVIDsTEA had a flash sale, so I stocked up on some black teas since those are my favourite, as well as the odd oolong tea because that’s just a cousin of black tea really. I’m probably not going to review each tea in future individual posts, but maybe after I try them all I’ll make a Delicious and Disgusting comparison post where I tell you what I like and don’t like.

So, here’s my haul:

#supportlibraries Saturday – The Program

Hey guys!

So I’m sure as most of you know, books are bloody expensive. Really damn expensive. Which makes book blogging an expensive hobby.

However, I, being a friggin’ genius, have come up with #supportlibraries Saturday, where I grab one book from the library each weekend and review it.

Today’s book is The Program, by Suzanne Young. Admittedly, it’s a throwback for me – I did read it when I was sixteen. But I promise, it’s just as good as it was the first time.

Joining Camp Nanowrimo 2017

Hi guys,

This isn’t so much a blog post as it is an update. I’ve decided to join Camp Nanowrimo 2017! I’m going to be working on something that I’ve been sitting on for a while, which I can only really refer to as “thief book” because I have a policy of not naming my works until they are born. For all you writers who need a good push, why not join me?

Productivity is a Snowball

So, amazingly, a few people have followed this blog. To you unfortunate souls, hello!

I wasn’t sure what to write about. I got a new book, so book review? That sounds interesting and also gets me rolling on how I want others to see my blog. But my desk is a mess, so I can’t take aesthetically pleasing photographs of it for all you folks to see.

How about reviewing tea? I have three tins of DavidsTea in my kitchen that I could definitely talk about. But I bought those in Montreal, and the labels are in French, and my phone is out of storage and I can’t even take photos…

It seems like everything I want to write about, I make an excuse to not do it. And then the day rolls on and it has been another ordinary, unproductive day.

For those of you who can relate to me and my laziness, I can guarantee you there’s a way to change that. It’s a bit like a snowball. Initially, getting started is hard and your efforts will crumble or melt apart. It’s easy to quit at that stage and say you tried. But you can get around that.

Shouting Into The Void – The Beginning

Hi there! If you’re reading this (which you are likely not because no one is going to read this let’s be real), you have found my blog. I can’t guarantee that this is going to be like, a thing, so just a disclaimer: do not get invested in this blog. I’m notorious for my commitment issues. I’ve had brief stints on other writing platforms such as Tumblr and Wattpad, but I’m going to try my best to regularly update this one (or so I say).

If you’re wondering who I am, my name is Rhea and I’m from Canada. I like writing, but I haven’t actually finished any books or projects longer than a thousand words. I’m hoping that blogging is going to A) help me with my writing and make sure it doesn’t get rusty, and B) serve as some sort of relaxing recreational activity.

As of right now, it looks like this blog is going to be centred around me reviewing books (wow, so original!), tea (even more original!), and any other little pet projects I might take up that I don’t mind sharing with the world wide web.

If it looks like I don’t know what I’m doing on here, that’s because I don’t know what I’m doing on here.

You’ve been warned.
