Survey Results!

Okay, everyone! Here are the results that I’m sure you all have been waiting for. A couple weeks ago, we made a post about wanting to help make an impact in the book community by providing a book buying/lending service for people to submit requests through.

This is still in the very early stages, but we want to share results with you about what we found from doing this!

First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.

Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel

Gushing with Caidyn and Chantel

The rules are:

  • Pick one thing that you’re really into this week
  • Gush about it

Literally, that’s it. That’s all you have to do for this.

It’s not exactly a tag so there aren’t huge rules. It’s more for Chantel and I to branch out into some new things. This was created as a book blog, but we love music, TV, movies, podcasts, video games, etc. And we want to talk about it more with you.

Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.

July Wrap-up

Wrap-up

Where did July go?? It really went by quickly. 2018 is going to be gone before we know it!

Thank you so, so much again for making this month amazing. We hit 200 followers, so thank you to all the new ones and the old ones who have stuck around. We also have topped our views for the fourth month in a row. Our hearts are so full thanks to you all.

This month, we read The Book of Essie together. A review will be up sometime in August with our thoughts. We posted our review of Becoming a Visible Man by Jamison Green, too! It was less of a review and more of a Q&A where Chantel asked Caidyn questions about his experience as a transman.

Tags:

We also started a new segment on our blog, so you should check out our first week here and our second here! It’s a whole lot of fun just gushing about random things. Other than books.

Lastly, we made a survey that we really want you all to fill out! You can find the post about it here, or comment below and we can send you a link to the survey!

Now, let’s dive into this!

Caidyn will be in blue.
Chantel will be in purple.
