Disclaimer: I was sent this book (unsolicited) by Bloomsbury, prior to its release, in exchange for an honest review. Hai Beautiful! I really didn’t want to like this book… This novel started off in a way that made me immediately not want to like our main characters, but I did. I liked this book! Blurb: When his dad is caught embezzling funds from half the town, Rob goes from popular lacrosse player to social pariah. Even worse, his father’s failed […]Continue Reading
Blog Updates, Etsy, Shop, Face Masks & More!
Hai Beautiful! It’s about time for another update! I thought it was about time I did this update considering so much has happened in the past month and a half, I don’t even know where to start! Since around mid-June, I started on a project to open an online shop to sell journaling and scrapbooking ephemera/ supplies. This stemmed from a strange desire to tear apart old novels, and let me tell you that once you rip up one book, […]Continue Reading
Things That Bring Me Calm ☺️

Hai Beautiful! Life is worth it. I’m very excited to be here chatting about this particular novel with you today! Blurb: In case you’re wondering, this is not a love story. My name is Tori Spring.

My Self-Hosting Journey Continued… Self-Hosting With VentraIP.
Heyo Bookaholics! The Saga Continues! Last weekend (I mean the weekend before) I began discussing the changes made to Jasper + Spice and ended up solely talking about self-hosting rather than the changes I’ve made to this site… Oops.

A Non-Bookish Post For A Good Cause!
Heyo Bookaholics! As you may be able to tell from the header, this is a different kind of post; very different to the usual book-related content I typically post. The girl in the foreground of the header and the following image is my best friend in the whole wide world. We’ve been by each other’s side for over 15 years and counting. A few months ago she delivered some sad news, her mother – the older woman in both images – […]Continue Reading
