Let’s just stop time for a moment and thank Tahereh Mafi for giving us the best Christmas present ever… a heaping dose of heartache!
*grips heart and curls in the fetal position*
It’s rare that I get super personal on this blog but after reading “The Problem with Forever” by Jennifer L. Armentrout I had to speak a bit of. my heart…
There may be some semi-spoilers in this post so read it cautiously if you haven’t read the novel yet. Mainly though this post is a letter to my best friend. Well, he used to be my best friend. Here’s how all this ties in…
Hello Book Lovelies,
As you’ve probably noticed I haven’t been posting in a few months and I wanted to update you on why that was and what is to come.
Firstly, my mum passed away October 4th from cancer. She fought the hardest battle of her life and I don’t like to say that she lost because I know she’s in Heaven and her best life is just beginning, but eventually it became too much for her body to handle and she went home to be with God. These months have been the hardest I’ve ever faced. I still cry for no reason at all and I still find my heart breaking over and over again as I begin to discover life without my mum.
Taking these past months to myself to try and cope with this massive life change and heartbreak has been good. However, I’ve missed you all SO much. Even though I’ve been around in and out for the past two years I feel like I’ve been gone that whole time. You know how you feel physically there but not mentally there? My blog, book tube, and Bookstagram account suffered. All the hard work I had put in suddenly felt as though it were slipping through my fingers. Of course, my mum was my first priority and I would never change that for the world but it definitely caused me to take a step or two back from the book world and I missed it more then I can say.
Soooo….now that I am beginning to stabilize a bit and figure out this new normal of life I am working on getting my Bookstagram back in order, filming videos for YouTube and also writing the books I have been wanting to share with all of you for so long. I know my mum always dreamed of me turning writing into a full time job and I want to make that dream a reality, for her and for me.
It may be a slow start as I get my head back into it all and figure out my work flow. I feel a bit overwhelmed at times with all I am trying to catch up on and I need to slow down from time to time.
As I relaunch back into the world of social media and blogging I want to find a balance between books and life. That doesn’t mean I won’t keep reviewing books as I read them, promoting books…etc. What I envision is me talking a bit more about the power books have in our lives and doing more tutorials for your Bookstagram accounts…etc. Maybe even some DIYs! Let me know if there is something specific you’d like to see. I’m excited for what is ahead and looking forward to going on this journey with all of you.
Speaking of books…. Since my mum passed away I haven’t been able to read. There are so many books I just couldn’t get into no matter how hard I tried. Honestly, I just haven’t felt like myself and it’s been very hard for me to find passion for anything lately. I feel burnt out and tired and even though my heart yearns to connect with the things I love it often times feels very numb. Last weekend I had a meeting at work and a very long break in between my shift and I headed over to trusty Barnes & Noble. I had a 15% off coupon and decided if I found anything that sparked my interest I would pick it up. I’ve been desperate to start reading again. I found the book “Paper Girl.” I didn’t realize it had just come out and it’s honestly such a good book. I feel like I was led to it on purpose and I’m thankful for it. I’m about 1/2 way through it. I will write a proper review once I finish it, but please check it out if you haven’t already…it’s SO good!!
Alright, enough of my rambling. lol I’ve missed you, can you tell? Expect more from me very soon! Sending you all heaps of love. Until next time, Happy Reading & Writing!!! <3
Have you seen the new Fantastic Beasts 2 Trailer? OMG!!! There are no words, just watch!!!
What are you reading this week, lovelies?
I’ve been working my way through Marissa Meyer’s Renegades series and I’m loving it. I talked about this with a few of you on Instagram but let’s dive in a little deeper here. In case you missed the discussion within the comments on Instagram.
When Renegades was released I immediately picked up a copy. I fell in love with Marissa Meyer after reading The Lunar Chronicles and I knew she was going to be a forever favorite. However, I was hesitant to start Renegades. Why? Because sometimes the superhero topic can come across really

Rating: 5/5 Stars
I was given an ARC for Rule by TheNovl team and it was such a good read. I am sad that I couldn’t post a review sooner due to my Mom being in and out of the hospital. If you follow me on Goodreads you’ll know I rated this book 5/5 stars and let me tell you, you’re going to love it. Rule is said to be Three Dark Crowns meets Pretty Little Liars and that couldn’t be a better description. Here’s the synopsis before I give you my spoiler free review…
Hello Book Lovelies,
You may notice things are a bit different around here *looks around awkwardly* The original blog is pretty much gone.
There was a horrific demon attack right as I was editing the blog and BAM! Everything was sucked into a portal and lost in limbo forever. Okay, what actually happened wasn’t that exciting but it sounds a heck of a lot better then the truth.
I accidentally deleted most of the blog.
Most of you know my Mom has been battling Stage 4 Small Cell Lung Cancer for over a year and 1/2 now. That’s meant a lot of time in and out of hospitals. This year we’ve spent A LOT of time there unfortunately. These past two months she’s been in and out of hospitals, rehabilitation centers and then back again. I’ve been running on little to no sleep and it’s been affecting everything I do.
I’ve become Lara Jean Song Covey when it comes to driving, minus the gorgeous Peter K. I’ve been so sleep deprived that I can’t drive without feeling like I’m going to fall asleep or get in some type of accident. I’m anxious to get behind the wheel and that has never been a thing before.
The logical solution would be just to sleep and get right with the world again. Sometimes though life doesn’t work out that way. You have to keep going and being strong no matter what. Well, I managed to go 24 hours without sleep the other day and it definitely is not advisable.
I got a little bit of sleep after that craziness and then decided while I was caring for my Mom I would work on the blog.
What was I thinking???
I made a backup of the blog first, just in case, and lonnnnnnggg story short I made stupid moves and couldn’t seem to get them fixed. When I attempted to restore from my backup I couldn’t find it anywhere. The blog now only shows posts from this time last year. So I may add those to this just to keep the older content alive, but it’s very sad.
However, I’m trying to turn this into a good thing. A fresh start. So welcome to Happy Lil Book Nook Blog v.2 and it’s Fall themed which makes me happy. Don’t you just love Fall?
And did you know?
You can also find me over at The Pages We Love. I blog there too and it’s the best place for YA news and content. Don’t miss it.
Until next time Book Lovelies (which will be soon), Happy Reading!!! <3
