- Hello everyone! I hope you're all doing wonderfully! This week has been a pretty dang good one (though a slow reading week).
- On Monday I went swimming with my best friends and got a little sunburn, which doesn't sound like a good thing, but that's my first step to becoming not-a-pasty-white-ghost-look-alike, so I'm actually fairly happy about it.
- Thursday, I went with another friend to see Me Before You and HOLY COW. Not only did I think it was just a wonderful movie, but I sobbed like a lil baby. I know there is a bit of controversy floating around about this book/movie, but I really liked it, and I plan to buy and read the book this summer.
- The final highlight of my week is that I've gotten super into BookTube. I've been watching bookish videos into the wee hours of the night. I really want to start my own BookTube channel, but I'm still working out all the details.

What I've Learned From Bookstagram
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
I'm really excited to continue this story. This is definitely going to be my next read!
I also received for review:
Little Black Dresses, Little White Lies by Laura Stampler - Thanks to Simon Pulse for this eARC! This book will be released on July 19, 2016.
Here are some highlights from my bookstagram account. You can follow me here if you want to keep up with everything I'm posting.
Day 4 of the #swoonyfictionjune #JuneBookChallenge is favorite villain. I picked Vaughn from The Chemical Gardens trikogy. He's a scientist doing dangerous experiments, so he's kinda reminiscent of older Gothic villains like Dr. Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll. He's creepy and remorseless, and when you factor in that he also has money and power, he's nearly unstoppable. Who are your favorite villains and why?
I've always been so fascinated by the Grimm fairy tales and the Grimm brothers in general. I did a mini report on them for my German class last year, and they have just done so much for literature. I'm still working my way through this massive book, but all the stories are so fun and interesting. What's your favorite fairy tale? My favorite Disney fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast, probably because Belle is a bookworm.
Morgan Matson quickly became one of my favorite authors the second I picked up one of her books. She writes phenomenal friendships, summer adventures, and smooches! I haven't read Second Chance Summer yet, though I want to within the next couple months. My favorite book by her is the first one I read, which is Since You've Been Gone. I hope y'all are having a good week! Comment and tell me some of your favorite authors, because I'd love to know!
What has your week in books and blogging looked like?
