Heyo Bookaholics! Beating the Writer’s Block! Inspired by tumblr text posts that are seen all over social networking sites and usually appear unwarranted and when you least expect them. They’re always so cute, angsty, and just overall adorable figments of the writer’s imagination.

Heyo Bookaholics! Storytime Wednesday Is Back! “If I hadn’t gone and purchased another five books, maybe choosing my TBR for this month wouldn’t be so hard.” Lilly’s exasperated sigh reached the phone, and a laugh was played back. “You know Lil.” Rachel’s voice was muffled from the speaker being smooshed into the blanket of Lilly’s bed. “I think this book thing is crazy, but maybe a little logic can help you.” Lilly nudged the phone a little to clear the […]

Heyo Bookaholics! There was no plan for this one… There was no plan for any of them. The Room Of Nightmares. Where are you? The room is bare, no walls or doors, or tables, or chairs.

These are the kind that look like they were crafted of a matte white sheet smoothed to perfection, no shine at all. You spin around and around and around […]

Heyo Bookaholics! Some things cannot stay in my head… Therapy “So I’ve decided not to take the medication.” My therapist and I had just settled into our respective seats facing each other when I broke the news – if it is even ‘news’ at all. I’d been thinking on her proposal for two weeks now, but deep down I knew, I really knew that medication isn’t the right thing for me. “Why? I think you should consider it.” She replied, […]
