Cute Cover, Interesting Premise, Great Writing | Excerpt from Ladders To Heaven by Mike Shanahan

I know Andie's Daily August ended a lil bit abruptly - I'll get into that later, promise - but now we have an exciting post today! As part of a lovely lil' blog tour (as always, poster below, you know the drill), I'm set to post an excerpt of the book you see there in the title. Now, I have the actual text but I also have the pdf, which I'll leave right before the excerpt itself. The design of the pages is lovely - also, there's an illustration there somewhere, don't miss it!


I’m Swamped With Tags, So OBVIOUSLY The Best Thing To Do Is Create A New One | The Greatest Showman Tag

Need I really explain myself more than I already did in the title? Didn't think so. As you might know, I've been quite obsessed with The Greatest Showman lately, and I thought: hey, what better thing to do than create a tag about it? It's not like I have other ten tags and awards sitting in my drafts, catching dust. Pfft, the idea is just ridiculous - however did you come up with something like that?? I'd never!! Also, this tag isn't just a bookish one - you can answer the prompts/questions below with an anime, book, movie, TV show, literally anything you can think of. Okay, so after 84 years, let's finally get started!

I Get To Showcase My Fancy Music Knowledge Today!! | 3 Day Lyrical Challenge Tag

I have a really fun tag in mind for today -  I was recently (yes, recently!) tagged by Alyssa @ Serendipitous Reads (I hope-hope-hope I spelled that correctly) to do a lovely lil thing called the 3 day lyrical challenge tag. Thank you so much for the tag! I didn't know I was going to be doing it this soon, but I definitely regret nothing. Let's get started!

A New Fantasy Series With Great Potential | Elji and The Galrass by Colin Sinclar Spoiler-Free Review

Today, I'm coming to you with a review of a fantasy book that got me really excited when I first read the summary - but I'll get more into that as we proceed with the review. I'd like to begin with a thanks to the author for sending me the book and to add my usual disclaimer that all of the thoughts you'll read below are my own and have not been influenced in any way. Without further ado, let's get started!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? | Weekly Meme [August 20th]

Today's post was meant to be something a little more snazzy, but I found myself having to write this up with no back-up, at 10 pm... Ah, not a fun situation - but still, there's potential for a fun post, which is exactly what we have today! I haven't written a weekly meme in ages, and I can't wait to get to this one. Let's get started!

The Time For Aliens Is Nigh | X-Files Book Tag

Today's another tag! Yep, another kinda old one, but hey, at least I'm posting tags from March anymore, right? Also, sorry I was a bit late with this post, but I had a bunch to do today and was also out for most of the day. A huge thanks to Michaela @ Journey Into Books for tagging me to do this! Without further ado, let's get into it!

What Happens When Bloggers Burn Out | Blogging 101 a.k.a. Where I Act Like I Know What I’m Doing

I was possibly very inspired when reading a fellow blogger’s post on the topic- I highly recommend both the post and the blog, they’re both very cool. Here she is: Savannah @ The Book Prophet (soon to be With Love, Savannah from what I gathered?). Anyway, I 100% got my inspiration from her. Let’s get started!

A Study On Book Covers | Bookish Conspiracy Theory

Today’s video might have been brought to you by me watching way too many Shane Dawson conspiracy theory videos, but it’s also largely brought by something I’ve noticed a while back. Disclaimer: this is mostly for comedy purposes, but I do genuinely also find this coincidence pretty interesting. Without further ado, let’s get into it.
