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

 

Table Top Gaming

As I’ve mentioned before I’m a huge gamer! Well this is a different side of gaming that not many people know about. Table top gaming has been around for decades and is probably the most nerdy thing I’ve ever done haha! Here’s my video on table top gaming and there’s actually a clip from a recent game night with some of my favorite people. If you want to know more, feel free to ask me questions!

Also an update on my reading. I recently finished the Darkest Minds series which was phenomenal! Alexandra Bracken is a kick butt writer! I’m currently reading the third book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I’m seriously in love with this series and can’t wait for the rest of it! I’m reading The Violet Hour by Whitney Miller next and will be doing a YouTube review of it soon after since I received an ARC of The Crimson Gate!

Happy Gaming & Reading!

Wow November is over!

Well November has come to an end and I hope everyone had a lovely holiday! I will be blogging a bit more in the coming weeks because finals will be over after next week, thank goodness! Because of the craziness with school I haven’t been writing or reading much.

I recently finished The Retribution of Mara Dyer which was the final book in the Mara Dyer series and it was AMAZING! The ending was so perfect, props to Michelle Hodkin on that one. I’m currently reading Waterfall by Lauren Kate which is the sequel to Teardrop. She is also well-known for her series Fallen, which is so good!

I am very behind on my Goodreads goal which is 75 books this year which I’m only at 53. I hope to get closer once I’m done with finals. Any recommendations? I have a mile long list of TBR’s but I’m always looking to add more!

Though I haven’t been reading as much I have been gaming quite a bit. My wonderful future hubby bought me an Xbox One recently so we can game together. I got the Sunset Overdrive special edition Xbox One which of course came with Sunset Overdrive.

149364_10154763988740717_6647769558550364987_nThis is our current set up, mine is on the left and his is on the right. So far I have Destiny, Sunset Overdrive, and Assassins Creed Unity. I really want to get the Master Chief Collection as I haven’t played Halo 2 since I was in high school! And there’s no beating some good old Matchmaking!!!

Any other readers out there that love gaming too?

Thank you for those of you who still read my blog even though I’m not super active as of late! I promise I will post more frequently in the coming weeks!

Happy Reading!

The NaNoWriMo fence

Okie Dokie! So I’ve been in a bit of a reading funk… mainly due to going back to school. I’m doing relatively well in my classes so YAY! But since I’ve been so busy I haven’t touched either of my WIPs since before classes started. However even though I’m on the fence with the whole NaNoWriMo thing, I think I might sign up and try to do it in hopes for motivation.

In the new Westerfeld book his main character Darcy essentially does NaNoWriMo and cranks out a book. I think it inspired me a little to try to do the same thing even though I doubt I can sit down every day and manage to write. November is one of the craziest times of year for me because of family gatherings so it will be interesting to see what happens.

Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo? or thinking of it?

Here is the link to NANOWRIMO┬áif you’re interested in more info! Like I said I’m on the fence and still deciding if I will even sign up.

On the fangirl side of things, it’s almost Halloween!!!! I’ve got my costume ready and already had a party I attended in it. My fiance and I decided to do a couples costume since we’ve never really found a couple we wanted to dress as until now!

I don’t have a picture with him but I do have pictures of my trial run…

Here’s my after! I also am in the midst of making a giant mallet . I don’t have my hair colored obviously for my trial but I will have it lighter with the red and black tips. My fiance is obviously going to be dressed as my puddin’, the one and only Mistah J ­čśë If you still don’t know who I’m talking about… GO WATCH BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES LIKE NOW and if you do, High-five to you sir or madame! So far I’ve been told I pull of crazy really well… which I’m not sure is a good thing necessarily haha! Anyone else big into Halloween?

Comment, like, and share!

happy ┬áreading y’all!
