The Monday Mix (31)

The Monday Mix basically gives me the opportunity to share with all of you the links I loved online from weeks past. This includes everything from great reviews, articles about writing, inspiring posts and perhaps other things too. I've always valued the opportunity to share the great things I've read or seen, and this is my way to share the love with all the bloggers, authors + pubs out there!

Oh, hello! It's time for another edition of The Monday Mix, and I'm very excited to delve back into the world of blogging and find interesting links for all of you to check up! BEA happened nearly two weeks ago, and it was seriously amazing. I enjoyed this year so much, because I got to hang out with some of my blogger besties (and meet some of them in person), meet + chat with some of my favorite authors, and really get to see the publishing friends I've made too. It was pretty much the ideal experience, and I'm hoping that 2015 turns out to be just as awesome when it's finally happening!

I had two days off last, last week, so I caught up on blogging and vlogging -- both of which are very fun. While I don't think I'd ever vlog full-time, I do think it's fun to put a little more effort into it (by using my sister's fancy camera to take the videos). I'm also caught up on reviews, which is miraculous and wonderful and I hope I can keep it like that for a while!

Well, we're at the sweet start of summer now, which is wonderful. Though it can get really hot in the city, I live for this time of year! It's fun to be able to stay out later (because the sunset is later), and to not feel cold (except when they blast the air conditioning on the subway). Summer always means my sense of adventure is aroused, and I love it!


Personal Posts:


Don't forget to check out my Tumblr (where I post photos and cover reveals and other fun things), and my sister's blog Snaps for Mel (where she recounts all our adventures)! I also have a Facebook page, where I post random links. You can also subscribe to my Youtube channelmy sister's YouTube channel and the Lit Ladies YouTube channel!

I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I did! Now it's YOUR turn - are there any posts (on your blog or other blogs) from last week that I missed out on? Please feel free to share links in the comments and I'll try to check them out.


  1. Alexa!! I love that you are doing more vlogs (even if it means stealing your sister's camera hehe). And omg, I love the haute couture versions of the Disney characters, that is SO COOL. The illustrations are GORG. Ahh, the post-BEA sadness. Loved your posts about them!

  2. Thanks for the shout-out, lady! I'm honored to appear in your Monday Mix!


  3. I love Monday Mixes so much! Some of these links are so neat, like the Epic Recs periodic table. Like, I mean, AWESOME. I actually also really liked the de-stressing post, there were some really good ideas in there! Definitely something I'm going to try.

    I REALLY hope I get to go to BEA next year, because it's amazing how much people seemed to have loved it! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much and I hope you can recover from it with those neat post-BEA tips, haha. ;)

    Lovely post, Alexa, thank you for sharing! <3
