Hey bookworms! I went to the library today and got 5 books I had on hold, so I thought I would share them with you. I love scanning books at the library, so I’m getting more excited to go each time. I would’ve taken pictures, but we haven’t had the best lighting today with the gloomy day, so I am just going to include the covers from goodreads. I also got a gift from a book friend and want to share that (I did manage a picture of that though). I hope you guys enjoy.
Library Book Haul
1.Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal by G. Willow Willson (author) and Adrian Alphona (artist)
I already read this and really liked it! The art style was really good, but i am picky so it was a 4 out of 5 stars for me and the last part confused me a little.
2. Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead (Author), Emma Vieceli (Illustrator), and Leigh Dragoon (Adapter)
I finished this one as well and it is an example of why I am hesitant to get library books… I was turning the page and at least 4 pages came out. I had a little freak out moment before continuing. I am going to have to walk it in when I turn it in… Getting past that I loved the art work and how the character expressions were portrayed. I was a little sad to see some of the storyline being cut, but overall it made me fall in love with the VA series more… If that is possible. This was a 5 out of 5 stars for me!
4. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
This old book is getting a lot of hype I decided to check into it because I also loved the movie. I got this one in audio book because I am very addicted to audio books at the moment and this one is only 5 discs, so I could finish it in a day =)
5. Daughter of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
I did not expect this book to be this huge! I read the first in audio book, so I didn’t get the sense of how big it was. I am eager to see what happens next, but I do wish the library owned the audio book because the narrator is the same as the first and I enjoyed her first.
The Gift I Received
As you guys may or may not know I have been trying to be more active in the book community. One way of doing this is through twitter. I have felt the support tenfold and made a few friends from all over! It is proof that books bring us together from all over the world. One of my new friends Angela who has a booktube channel offered to send me a gift, since she had it done for her. That is the amazing thing about the book community to make others feel more welcome. She sent me these two things:
The book an Ember in the Ashes was so I can participate in a readalong with her and another bookworm on the 17th. Feel free to tweet me at @CKReads if you want to join us To be honest I am a little nervous to tackle this book, but I am excited to have interaction as I read. She also gifted me one of my favorite movies! I adore Jude Law and am so happy to have this. I plan to return the favor as soon as I am able! Even if you don’t give gifts it is good to have people to lean on at any moment. I definitely want to talk more about the community, but that is for another post I am going to host with The Blogger The Paige-Turner, so look for that soon. Well that is all I have to say for now bookworms! How do you feel about tackling hyped books? Have you had any bad library experiences? What are you reading next? Let me know in the comments!

Hey Bookworms! It’s me again with another post for BEA Armchair! I am so excited to see how much it is bringing bloggers together. I blog best at night and on my coast at least it is still Day 2, so here I go with the Topic of Social Media!
Social Media and How I Use It to Reach You From My Little Corner
Honestly before my blog I only used Facebook to be social with the internet, Pinterest to look at pretty pictures, Goodreads to admire books, and an occasional tweet here and there. Now that I’m blogging these platforms mean so much more to me. Facebook allows me to share with friends and family I do know. This is a subtle approach to either coaxing them into reading, and/or maybe sharing with their friends who do read. It is just nice to give them a glimpse of what I’ve been working so hard on for 8 months now! Words have always been my outlet and safe haven this is the way to show them my passions have never changed. Facebook also allows me to like publisher and author pages to see new books I may not have found otherwise.
Twitter is now a place to reach out to my favorite authors! I always get excited when they favorite my tweets. It’s a place to socially get support when Participating in Readathons which I am addicted too. As well as meet and show bloggers what I am working on with the use of this ‘#’ little symbol. It is where I share my posts the most! It amazes me how quick new trends catch on. My favorite hashtag to use is #bookworms or #bookworm problems when I blog them. It lets me see who’s blogging about what if I am in a rut and lets me know I am not alone. It is also a great way to communicate with my favorite bloggers even if the character count can get in the way of actual words sometimes. It is also where I update what I am reading the most if I am away from my computer
Goodreads is a place for me to link the reviews I have done allowing me to slowly feel more confident about them. It also shows me to what my fellow bloggers are reading that I may not discover on my own. Since I don’t follow release dates it also reminds me when a book will be release when it’s on my To Read list! There is also the use of groups that allows you to find other bloggers or people that favor my genre of book.
Pinterest hasn’t changed much with my blogging, but occasionally I stumble upon some awesome posts! Tumblr has always been a bit confusing to me since I am not the most tech savvy. It always seemed the most complicate. As for Instagram one as well, but plan to fix this problem once I come into a phone with a better camera!
So if you’re curious to follow me or get a hold of me my information is on my Contact Page! Bookworms that’s it for the night! I plan to read fellow bloggers posts and plan tomorrow’s. This post isn’t late if we have the same time zone! I hope you all enjoy and happy reading!
