I Want the Friendships

There are bloggers out there who are jealous of the ARCs people receive. Others wish they had as many page views and blogger A or B. And I'm a jealous blogger too, in all honestly.

I'm jealous of all the friendships people in the book blogging community have.

The Friday Five (2)

What is The Friday Five? Find out here!
on a Saturday! 

1) The college work has begun and I don't like it. If we think about it though, we've been in school all our lives. It's a little weird thinking about it. I've only been in school for about one month and a little bit more and all of it is crazy busy! 

2) I almost had a panic attack but luckily I didn't! I did cry a lot which sucked ass but I'd rather cry any day when compared to having a panic attack. 

3) I haven't read a book in weeks! I've been super busy with school, friends, drama and well, life. I have wanted to read books and I know I'm going to have to give up a lot about blogging but that's okay! 

4) I have been obsessed with OneRepublic and I've been introduced to lots of new music! For those who know me, I listen to music in two languages so it can be tough to be up to date with English songs but somehow I manage. 

5) I am running out of scheduled posts and I feel like many of the new posts will be discussions. Basically, I'm not reading as much as I would like and therefore, I'm unable to write up reviews. It's a large endless cycle that I wish I can get out of soon!

NA: Less Angst and Drama?

I'm not a fan of NA. I'm not even going to say why but I'll link to three posts written by Nicole at WORD for Teens as to why I feel this why: Post 1, Post 2, and Post 3. But that's not what I'm here to talk about.

Today, I want to talk about a few popular NA books that feature characters that are more mature than ones in YA books, don't slut shame or stereotype, less angst and drama and so much more. If you can't tell, I'm so utterly confused that I can't even begin to describe it. **I'd like to point out right now that I've either finished these books or started by DNF them.**
