Where in the world did I go?

Hey guys!

VERY LONG TIME since I last posted on this blog. It’ll probably be a long time before I do again. Why? you ask… So I got really involved in Booktube. I have almost 2K subscribers and met some of the most amazing people ever including my two best friends.

I’ve slowed down on that quite a bit as well though. I got married last year in June and ended up working in a library around January. My life has been super busy and full of excitement. If you want to catch up with me feel free to watch any and all of my videos on YouTube.

Anyway, I came back to the world of blogging, again you may ask why… Well I’m 8 months pregnant and doing videos regularly has become quite the challenge. I started doing mommy vlogs and sharing my passion for all that on my channel. However, it’s getting hard to have the energy to not just film but to sit and edit a video. So I started a new blog – Musketeer Mom. The mom part of the name is pretty obvious but the musketeer part is because of course I couldn’t just name my child a typical name… it had to come from a book. That book being The Three Musketeers and my sons (OH YEAH, I’m having a boy lol!) name being Dartagnan.

I figured if any of you still followed this blog and were wondering where in the cosmos I went and what I’m up to now, I’d let you know! haha

I hope you come on over to Musketeer Mom and check out some of my posts! I may try and get more active on this blog as well.

Much love!

Happy Blogiversary!

anniversary-2x

So my blog is officially one!!! It’s interesting to me that the reason I started this blog was because I was going through a rough time in my life. I had just dropped out of nursing school because I was having health problems, my Aunt Brenda had been diagnosed with breast cancer, my grandmother had passed, and my fiance’s great-grandmother passed. All within the span of a month. It was a lot to take in and I didn’t give myself time to grieve. I realized the importance of being able to mourn the loss of someone you love.

Monday morning I woke up to a text message from my mom saying my Aunt Brenda had passed. Earlier this month my mom got a call saying that Brenda had gone to the doctor and they told her she had Leptomeningeal Carcinomatosis. Basically, her cancer had spread through her spinal fluid to her brain. They gave her two weeks to two months to live. The last few days have been rough, but that’s not the reason I’m posting this. It’s just interesting to see that literally a year ago I was going through the same thing.

On the happier side of things, I finally got my video done. I know it’s two weeks late. But I’m sure you can see how crazy things have been lately. Here it is! It’s all about the struggles of a female gamer!

 

Thanks guys for the year of support! It seriously means the world to me! I hope you keep reading my blog and watching my videos! If you ever have any suggestions of video’s you would like to see, feel free to let me know!

Happy Reading & Gaming,

Aly

Guest post!

So I was asked by a fellow blogger and friend, John over at Write me a book, John! Go check his blog out! He post about all things book related and shares his VERY STRONG opinions. He talks about some really interesting topics though!

Enough about John… I wrote a guest post on why I love YA books. As you all know, I read pretty much only YA. If you want to read the post then click HERE!

Go like it and if you’re not following John then do so! Also read the rest of the guest posts this week! There’s already been two very interesting posts and some more to come!

Changing the name of this blog?

So I’m contemplating changing the name of this blog! Since I’ve started up this whole YouTube thing, I’ve been thinking about changing it to my channel name which is The Little Librarian. Most my posts these days are of my videos anyway. But I’m not really sure if I wanna forego ilikebookstoomuch…

So I’m turning this to you guys! Should I change my blog name to The Little Librarian? or keep ilikebookstoomuch?

Reading update: I just finished the third book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I’m now reading The Violet Hour by Whitney Miller. I’m only a few chapters in but it’s really good so far and has similar elements of Mara Dyer and The Murder Complex but in Japan. I’ll be doing a video about this book and the second book which is called The Crimson Gate which comes out next month!

Also if you haven’t checked it out yet here is the link to my YouTube Channel! Feel free to share and subscribe!

Happy Reading,

Aly
