Features & Collaborations

Hello! If you happen to be reading this, you're probably curious about all the features that are a part of my current blog schedule. Here you'll find a brief overview of each one and you can click on the graphics to see past posts If you've got any questions, feel free to send an email or tweet me! (Also, all these graphics were designed by my lovely friend Danica!)
(est December 2014) This started as a way for me to share a bunch of mini-reviews all at once, morphed into monthly recaps for books I didn't write full reviews for and also occasionally becomes a spotlight for a particular series or author. These days, this feature is for me to share mini-reviews of three books at a time based on what I've been reading lately.

(est June 2016) One of the things I enjoy doing is sharing what I get up to in my everyday life, especially when I get to do fun things like see shows, or travel out of town, or visit fun spots in New York City. This feature, though irregular (I'm hoping that will change this year!), will continue to share my real life adventures.

Like most bloggers, I always post a monthly recap! It includes what's been happening in my personal life, what I've been reading (including my favorite reads) and what's been posted on the blog in the past month.

(est December 2013) Inspired by other people's bookish playlists and Taylor Swift's 1989, I wound up creating this feature. I originally picked out one of my favorite albums (current or otherwise), and I paired each track on it with a novel! The updated feature highlights the songs that are currently on my playlists, still pairing each one with a novel that it reminds me of.

In addition to my individual blog features, I also collaborate with some of my friends on features that I absolutely love. Here are the four currently active collaborative features that I've got going on with other bloggers! (Rachel made the graphics for the first two, Hannah created the third, and I did the last two myself.)

(est November 2013) A collaboration with Rachel! We often have the same ARCs on our TBR piles, so we decided it would be fun to read one together on a regular basis. Our reviews go up on the same day, and we include our answers to a bonus question inspired by the book.

(est January 2017) A collaboration with Rachel! One of the things we are always trying to do is to make sure we share diverse content that revolves around all our interests, and not just books (even though we love them). We came up with the idea of doing a series that features food spots in New York City so we could share our thoughts and recommendations with our readers!

(est January 2015) A collaboration with Hannah! It's a pact we make on a yearly basis, where we promise to continue to be more intentional with our reading and book acquiring choices. It's been really fun to see our improvement over the years, but we've both still got a ways to go!

(est January 2018) A collaboration with Kristin! There are so many sequels we're excited about in 2018, so we decided it could be fun to do a feature all about them. We're either going to be sharing our thoughts in a review or telling you what sequel we're looking forward to reading and why.

(est January 2018) A collaboration with Rachel! My sister and I decided to challenge ourselves to learn about or experience hobbies other than our usual. I'm practicing my photography skills, while Rachel is going to be reading a couple of new books.

My blog has been around for a few years now, so it's no surprise that there are a few features that are now retired or only happen very sporadically. If you're interested in checking out some of my old features, you can browse the links below:
