Just an Update – Where I’ve Been

The Answer – I’ve been HERE. Just not… here. Wow. It’s been so long since I have written a post – even logging into WordPress – it took me a minute to remember how all of it works. Good news, it’s like riding a bike. I just hope the rest of it comes back just as easy! It’s been weird, y’all. Not gonna lie, it’s also been… nice. And easy. […]

Random Rants and Rambling // Sequels I’m Dying to Get My Hands On

Hey Hey! Welcome to another Random Rants and Rambling; a discussion feature dedicated to all topics but generally book related For today, I wanted to do something different for this discussion feature – and ramble about Sequels – and show off some of the books I’m SO EXCITED to get my hands on. I’ve been TERRIBLE about finishing series – it’s been pretty bad over the past year or so. But. […]

Common Misconceptions About Book Bloggers // From My Own Personal Experience

Hey Hey! Welcome to another Random Rants and Rambling; a discussion feature dedicated to all topics but generally book related As a blogger, we run into varying reactions when REAL LIFE meets the blog.

Should We Read Books That Everybody Else is Reading? // Guest Post by Simone

SHOULD WE READ BOOKS THAT EVERYBODY ELSE IS READING? If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking. – Haruki Murakami A while ago, I’ve seen this interesting quote on the Internet and it had this even more interesting comment underneath it. The person who wrote it said something along the line that it’s true because nowadays, a lot […]

How To Get That Book Body // Guest Post with Zoe

Question: How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice. Hi, my name is Zoe and I’m a guest blogger here on Lilybloombooks! Other than a guest blogger, I’m also just a teenager who is figuring out life through trial and error (I like to think I’m doing a pretty good job), all while I document it on my own blog, Zoe le Zebre. Yet, even though I may […]

I Think I’m Becoming a Mood Reader // Random Rants and Rambling #40

Hey Hey! Welcome to another Random Rants and Rambling; where the topics are random but the vents are not! (wow that was corny) SO ANYWAY, now that I’ve recovered from that corny statement, I want to revisit mood reading. Back in May of last year, I had a similar discussion about being a mood reader, and I asked all of YOU if you were. At that time, I was pretty […]

Random Rants and Rambling #39 | Is Reading Too Much a Thing?

Hey Hey! Welcome back to another Random Rants & Rambling. Today, I wanted to talk about Reading Too Much – and if this is a THING, and if so, is it BAD? I’ve had quite a few discussions about this topic lately, in varying degrees and after a while, I really started to think about how much I read, and my memory of said books. I use to pride myself with […]

New Year’s Resolutions | Quarterly Check In

Back in December, I wrote about my goals for 2016 – and listed a few things I wanted to do to get to where I want to be. I thought it would be fun to do a check in and share with you the progress I have made. Or in some cases, no progress at all! Be Me I am making continuous progress. I think. I mean – I don’t […]

When it’s time to say Goodbye

This is probably one of the hardest posts to write. I’m all emotional. There’s this tight and heavy feeling in my chest. There are butterflies and OMG is that a tear? If you know me well, you know I am not typically a crier. But there have been a lot of things on my mind when it comes to blogging and life and I think I am ready to talk […]
