What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby??


Lately I haven't done much outside of the blogging world, but when I do have my nose out of a book I love to paint! I also make polymer clay jewelry, sculpt, mosaic and do stained glass. My newest hobby is not really that normal for teenagers, but I adore quilting and hand stitching too! I'm working on a book quilt! I'm also obsessed with my adorable dog Max and spend a lot of time with him and family.



Book Blogger Hop

What popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

I'm still new to the blogging world so luckily I haven't had to write a bad review for a popular book. However a book I recently read that I felt didn't live up to the hype for me was Beautiful Creatures. I know right?! Everyone loved this book, just for some reason I couldn't get into it for the life of me! Don't get me wrong, the writing was great I just didn't really like the characters. I still plan on reading Beautiful Darkness though just in case I change my opinions about the characters in book 2.

  3. Hey. Thanks for visiting my blog :)
    Yep, I totally understand about not getting the characters. I was so nervous about posting that negative review for Beautiful Darkness, it was untrue.
    Thanks for following me, now following you back.

    I'm so impressed with all of the crafts you do. I would love to see pictures of them if you ever wanted to share.

    If you're interested, I'm hosting an event on my blog for new bloggers to get advice from established bloggers and to encourage blogger interaction. Your blog is really great and I'd love to hear some feedback from you about your experiences as a blogger. :)

  6. Just hopping by to say Hi. I’m also fairly new to the wonderful book blogosphere, so I’m still anxiously waiting to read my first overhyped book within the community...

    It seems that Beautiful Creatures is appearing quite frequently.

    Stop by if you get a chance. http://twobibliomaniacs.blogspot.com

  7. I just saw another blogger who didn't like Beautiful Creatures either so you're not alone! I wasn't that interested in it so I haven't checked it out yet.

  10. A book quilt! That would be so awesome for snuggling up in a chair and reading. My sister had an old comfy chair of hers reupholstered in book fabric. It came out really great. Enjoy your weekend!
