Hey Book Nerds!!

A week recap of all the posts are listed below. Make sure to drop by and comment! I love reading your comments and feedback <3


Weekly Updates

A happy early Merry Christmas Book Nerds!!

I hope you all have such a fabulous holiday season! I have been trying to catch up on all my blogging and vlogging duties lately, and I apologize if most of my posts have been up late. I’ve been so busy lately, that I don’t even schedule posts anymore shocked face. I hope to change that in the New Year again so I’m not scrambling and/or stressing about the blog.

So one of my most requested comments on YouTube is to do an Updated Bookshelf Tour. I finally recorded them all and there’s 6 parts. And they’re not short, so anyone who is interested in seeing my bookshelf tour, click here. I also hit another milestone on the channel with more than 50,000 video views. That’s insane O_o! I can’t believe the amount of people who comment, and watch my vlogs, you all are awesome. That also means GIVEAWAY time! I’m hoping to get it up before the year ends..

I am hoping to have some scheduled posts next week, but I won’t promise anything. I’ve also been a bad blogger and haven’t been returning my comments as I usually do, but I do read them all.

Until next week Book Nerds! Salutes

    Woah, I also thought Prophecy wasn’t out until January – what a great find!! I’ve also been dying to read The Darkest Minds. You got a lot of books that I haven’t heard a whole lot about, so I definitely look forward to reading some early reviews for those to see what they’re all about! Holy congrats on that video view milestone!!!! That is seriously awesome. I hope you have a great holiday with lots of reading, Giselle!!

    Wow, nice haul! I’m definitely jealous about The Darkest Minds, I’ve heard SO MANY good things about it. I already have an ARC of Prophecy, but it was a bit of a let down… I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
