I’ve missed you, my little barklings (yes, I have finally come up with a name for you lovely creatures)! I really have! But school has kept me so very busy and I’m afraid I haven’t had much time to update my blogverse and learn about yours. But never fear. I’ve had a stroke of utter genius and created Bookish Barkings, which will (hopefully) be a new weekly feature, much like Cait @ Paper Fury’s “Weekly Fury” and Emily @ Loony Literate’s “It’s A Loony Life.”
It’s the third week of school already! I was clicking though my post archives from last year and noticed I’d kept up blogging a whole lot better during the school year… and kept up reading better (but we’ll get to that). This year I’ve got harder classes, so less blogging/reading, but I’m hoping to still sneak a peek at your little beautiful blogs once in a while!
Oh! I need your feedback! Should I create a little page of “blogs I love”?? But if I did that would you mind having the review policy under book reviews? AND ALSO THE FONT I AM SO CONFUZZLED. Does it look good now?? GAH so many choices.
- I didn’t really read anything this week, but I got my paws on The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, finally! I’ve heard such good things about this one, and it’s mine to keep from the library for 21 whole days. (GIVE ME ALL THE STIEFVATER, SO MANY GOOD THINGS ABOUT ALL THE STIEFVATER.) OH and I also checked out I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak while I was at it, because why not
even if I get no time to read?
- I’m currently reading Les Aventures du Petit Nicholas and Les Trois Mosquetaires for French class, as those of you who stalk me on Twitter know. They’re the first whole, “real” books I’m reading in French!
I didn’t do anything creative this week, although I DID take a couple pictures of the stuff I’m reading. Click to view the whole image and my odd captions.
ALSO I discovered the Great and Wonderful Cœur de Pirate because of French class and a French exchange student! She’s this amazing French singer who you should listen to because I don’t understand what she’s singing about but it’s PRETTYYYYYY.
- I’m an INTJ! Which means I am the ultimate supervillian! I’m taking AP Psychology in school this year, and GUESS WHAT WAS THE FIRST THING WE STUDIED?! (It’s not the MBTI for sure.) I’m introverted-inuitive-thinking-judging. Which means I have NO EMOTIONS and have the ideal personality for COMPLETE WORLD DOMINATION, muahaha. *cackles*
- So basically, this week I studied, and found my studying fun. Not much else, I guess.
I remembered that Twitter existed!
Oh, right. Twitter is a thing. Which exists. What an idea. I am completely blown away. Wow. #iforgottwitterforawhile

… And basically forgot about everything else. My Instagram hasn’t changed for WEEKS. (But that shouldn’t stop y’all from following @booksandbark! *insert shameless self-promotion*)
I blogged twice this week, and both times on the weekends! So sadness for the timing, because it was UTTERLY awful, but yay for posts! (Click on the images to read the posts!)
