A Week in the Life of Bookish Revelations…

I talked about how I’ve been blogging about books on and off for the last 7 years and how crazy that is earlier this week on the blog in a new feature I’ve come up with called, Rewind Wednesday’s. It’s been a long, strange, and kind of amazing trip from where I started out to where I am now. Originally I started out blogging through the Blogger platform and my blog had a different name that had a different (but special) meaning that really resonated with me. Now, I’m finally self-hosted and I’ve changed the name of my blog to something that I feel like truly represents who I am as an avid book reader, blogger, and overall person in general.

So, what’s been going on with you, you ask?

Well, I’ve been hard at work giving my blog a major overhaul, basically just trying to make it reflect who I am as a person and what I want it to say about my love of all things…BOOKS! Which, is really what we’re all here for, right? I have a lot of fun things that’s going to be happening on the blog in the next coming weeks that I’m excited for, like my new feature Rewind Wednesday’s, up-coming blog discussions that I can’t wait to post, more book reviews, a few reading/blogging challenges that I’m participating in, and more book reviews of course. So, definitely stick around for the up-coming attractions.

The Week Read on Bookish Revelations

The Adjustment by Suzanne Young

This was an amazing book, but then again I feel like anything that Suzanne Young has written or will write is always going to be amazing. I only have one more book left in the series before I finish it completely, which is The Complication and I’m actually reading that right now. I have loved this series from the moment that I started reading it, because it’s so intriguing and dark to read about an intense world where suicide is an epidemic and the cure could be erasing everything that makes someone who they are or manipulating their memories in such a way that they may never recover at all and could still ultimately die in the end. It’s such a bold and daring series that explores the scary significance of life and death and the way that it affects us as individuals and the world around us. Suzanne Young is definitely one of my go-to author’s.

Currently Reading on Bookish Revelations

The Complication by Suzanne Young

I’m only a fourth of the way into this book and already my heart is just smashed and my adrenaline is pumping to find out what’s going to happen next. I’m excited to see how this series is going to wrap itself up and I’m wondering if the author is planning on another book in the series or if this really is the end of it, because I have loved every single minute of immersing myself into this world as stark and harrowing as it has been, it has also been just as cruel and beautifully written.

Wanting to be Read on Bookish Revelations

To To Be Read -- August 2018

Since I’m trying to finish up a few book series or at least get current with one of them until the next book releases, I’m definitely wanting to read The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon. It’s the next book in the Bone Season series and I can’t wait to see what happens next and I’m also trying to knock out some of my Netgalley reviews as well, so I’ll be reading Even If I Fall by the lovely and talented Abigail Johnson who is a new author to me and I kind of can’t wait because this book looks like it’s going to be a really fantastic read and great fit for the blog.

  1. I am going to have to do this challenge – 2018 NETGALLEY & EDELWEISS READING CHALLENGE. My plan once I finish finals is to get some of these read and reviewed! Wish me luck! My new semester will start September 5th. A month of free reading! YAY!

    Mary

    • Girl, good luck with your semester, my Fall semester actually starts August 21st. I’ll only have the one class with a lab attached, Anatomy&Physiology 2, but we all know that’s not an easy subject because there’s so much to know. lol. I know what you mean, I’ve been on quite the reading kick lately and while I’m out of my slump I’m definitely going to have to do some work on clearing my Netgalley and Edelweiss shelves and getting some reviews up.

      So, yes…good luck with all of the free reading and also the upcoming semester and thanks for stopping by the blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Rewind Wednesday’s sounds great, and sounds like you have a lot of interesting posts coming up! I’ve heard good things about Suzanne Young’s books too, and am looking forward to trying her stuff at some point soon.

    Even If I Fall looks interesting too.

    Hope you have an awesome week!

    • I thought it might be fun to mix things up a little bit and throw in a little “rewind thoughts”, which is where the idea came from. Like old discussion posts with new thoughts attached or revised reviews and updates on series that I’ve fallen out of love with or have stagnated in reading. Yeah, I’m trying hard to get some posts scheduled ahead of time, since the Fall semester starts in the middle of next month for me. lol. My goal is to at least get two weeks of posts scheduled ahead of time, that way I’m not falling behind or having to try and play catch up in between my class load and the blog.

      Suzanne Young is an amazing author, I think that you would really like this series. I love the way that it was written in such a realistic way and I don’t feel like it was all that heavy handed either, which was one of the things I was slightly worried about when I first took on the task of reading the series. Yes, that’s how I felt about that book, I’m about to start reading it tomorrow or well that is the plan.

      Aww, thanks, you too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Aww, thank you for the sweet compliment on my blog, it’s not entirely finished and is a work in progress but I am working on it a little bit here and there everyday. The last couple of days, I’ve been working on creating templates for the features that will be posted on the blog weekly, so that way I won’t have to do them all entirely from scratch every single time, it saves on time. Yes, The Program series is such a fantastic series, I finished it last night and I loved how it ended. Although, there is a part of me that would love to see a little bit more in it. lol.

    • Well, it’s been on and off blogging about books for the last 7 years, I took some time and a few hiatuses to get myself together a bit. But, ooh, congrats on your blog turning 5 next month, that is absolutely awesome. Do you have any idea how you’re going to celebrate it? I was thinking that next year when mine turns another year old, I may celebrate all week long with various different posts and a giveaway – something like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Your blog is very cute. I originally started on blogger a few years ago, too, although I kept my name when I switched to wordpress. I’ve been meaning to read Young’s series. It looks intriguing. Happy reading!

    • Aw, thank you for the compliment. *g* I don’t know, when I switched from Blogger over to being hosted through Nosegraze I felt like the name change better suited me and what I wanted to talk about on the blog. Like, I’m really big into being a planner geek and I wanted to be able to talk about that, as well as being a college student, and an avid book reader. So, I figured Bookish Revelations sort of fit the bill on where I was as a book reader/blogger, college student, and planner girl. Yes, I am a geek and I own it! lol. Suzanne Young is an amazingly phenomenal YA author and The Program series is fantastic. I love the way that she wrote in such a realistic pov and it wasn’t quite as heavy handed as I thought it would initially be. Thank you, for stopping by the blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Thank you Susan for the comments you left on my blog, and ofcourse following me. So appreciated. I think you and I have the same style as I love your blog too. Like yourself I want to reinvent my blog, change my name as mine isn’t very original.

    I have had The Program for so long in my Kindle, need to get to it. I love how your blog doesn’t just review new books, after all, how many of those can we actually read? ๐Ÿ˜‚

    So glad to virtually find a new buddy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    • I think we do too, it’s one of the things that I noticed right off the bat and I was extremely happy when I found my way to your beautiful blog. I like how we have so much in common. Aww, I really like the name of your blog, I think it’s cute and it made me smile. But, if you want to change it, then some things to think about is who you’ve become as a reader/blogger and as a person. I sort of knew that I didn’t want to only just talk about books on my blog, but I also wanted to talk about being in college and also the fact that I’m a planner girl at heart (I have 8+ different planner’s/traveler’s notebooks and they each have their own functions in my life) and so I know that I’ll want to talk about that a little bit on the blog too. I mean, planning kind of sort of goes hand in hand with keeping the blog running smoothly and functioning the way that I want to, so it sort of shakes out in the end and isn’t such a far stretch plus it will make for good conversation. I also want to make a monthly post about myself as a person, like where I am, what’s going on in my life outside of the bookish things, and talk about my favorite hobbies like creating my own jewelry and memory keeping (scrapbook in pocket pages).

      Oh, you should definitely read The Program series by Suzanne Young, it’s a really fantastic series. I’m not just saying that, I loved her whole approach to suicide being an epidemic and the cruel ways that certain people tried to stamp it out, that ended up either killing or harming those “somehow” infected with it. It wasn’t as heavy handed with the depression as I thought it might actually be and it was really easy to read, because it more of an action/conspiracy let’s get down to the bottom of this and stop it, sort of thing.

      Hee, thanks so much for the compliment. I was looking for a new way to sort of re-invent my blog and also bring over all of the previous book reviews that I had written and posted on the blogger platform, so I thought that Rewind Wednesday’s would be kind of a cool way to do that. Also, I have so many books sitting on my shelf to be read and I’m almost ashamed to say this, but some of them have been there for a few years and I really do need to get around to reading them. So, I also thought a couple of the reading challenges that I’m participating in would help me remedy that. I can’t afford to buy all of the new books and even though my Edelweiss and Netgalley shelves are cringing from the weight they’re under (all the reviews I need to get to), I also needed to pay attention to some of my older books.

      Yes, my friend, same here! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Congrats on moving over to self-hosting! I know that’s a big jump ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t read anything by Samantha Shannon yet, but the Bone Season series has me intrigued. I’d really like to try something of hers before Priory of the Orange Tree comes out next year.

    • Well, it’s hosting through Nosegraze, but I did purchase the domain and I’ll repurchase it again in October for a year. Yeah, it’s been a big jump, but I feel a lot happier over here than I was over on Blogger and I have a lot more that I can work and customize. Oh man, she is a fantastic author and I absolutely love the Bone Season series so far, you should definitely check her out. I’m excited for Priory of the Orange Tree. I took part in a blog tour for the Bone Season and also a read-a-long, back when it first came out so I’m really excited for the next book in the series.

      Thank you, so much for stopping by the blog. ๐Ÿ™‚
