600 Followers + The Happiness Tag

Anna can’t believe this either…in fact, she looks quite skeptical of the whole thing.

Um, I meant to come here about a few weeks ago and thank you for 500 followers…but I kind of missed the mark on that. So I promised, Mandy, you will do something epic for 600 followers…you will have loads of time to plan because surely it won’t hit for a while. o.o Um, what just happened, gals and guys?


First off, I want to thank you from the bottom of my book heart, because there honestly was NO way that I expected any of this. I came here, thinking maybe 2 or 3 people would find this book and be on their way. Nowhere did I ever think I would somehow amass 600 followers and be a part of this amazing, lovely community. Everyone here is amazing, and I thank each and every one of you.

Blog hugs for everyone?

Now, since I didn’t get my act together in time, I just wanted to let you know that I am planning a little something, something. Hopefully it will be up sometime next week with the details.

But seriously, thank you so much again, and even though I don’t cry for books, this might have gotten me to tear up a tiny bit (seriously, I was bone dry with The Fault in Our Stars). So major feat. Thank you thank you thank you! ❀


I was tagged for this tag over by the always lovely Nadwa @ Painfully Fictional. Have you checked out her blog yet? Because it’s amazing, and she’s amazing, and everything is amazing. Check it out her own tag here, and thanks so much again, Nadwa! But seriously, make sure you go check out her blog.

Um, I thought this tag was so ridiculously perfect for this post, and it’s so ridiculously easy, so I mean, I’m so excited for this today. πŸ˜€ No rules – just list the things that make you happy! πŸ˜€



Well, of course, this is the top thing on the list. How can this be a book blog without me being excited about them. I’ve always loved books, but it hasn’t been until I really started this book blog that I realized just how much happiness they truly bring me. I get so ridiculously excited for book mail that it’s like Fierce Fangirl Friday every day here.

The Disney Princesses

Um, I don’t think we need to stay too long on this one, because I mean, I think it’s pretty obvious? πŸ˜‰

The Princess Bride

This movie never fails to make me laugh or smile when I watch it. It’s absurdly amazing, and I’m addicted to the cult classic. I was going to add in a favorite quote in here, but literally this movie is just one big quote so that didn’t work.

Friends and Family

I totally stole this answer, Nadwa, because it’s so true. I love them dearly, and almost all of them understand the book struggle. They’re so supportive, and they have each listened to my fangirling with so much grace. And besides, I fangirl over each thing with a different. You can blame my dad for the Bigfoot and Disney obsession; my friend for getting me into the book blogging world; and more. XD


Um, next topic, please. πŸ˜‰


I’m just going to do my top 5 that would make me happy if they popped up on the radio right this very second:

Tag…you’re it!

Zuky @ Book BumΒ (I swear you haven’t done this, right? D:) / Darque @ Darque Dreamer Reads / Rendz @ Reading With Rendz / Jannin @ The Book Nerd Dragon / Kyera @ Kyera’s Library / Moira @ For The Lover of Books (click the link to see her cool new tag, too) / Quina @ A Pretty Story / Eva @ Brilliantly BookishΒ / Emma @ A Dreamer’s Library /

It’s been a while since I tagged anyone so I totally pulling a blank on who I usually do or who I know wants to, but please feel free to do it since it’s a lot of fun! πŸ˜€

Thanks so much again, everyone! ❀ All the support has been so kind and lovely, and the book blogging community is the best. So, what do you think? What makes you happy? What five songs are making you super happy right now? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

Also, I am participating in a lovely blogging meme – event – thing, called Big Blogger, Little Blogger. It’s super cool and being put on by A Well-Thumbed Reader. My blogging partner is A Dance Between Pages, and if you haven’t check out their blog yet, you totally should! There is a super good mix of reviews from adult to YA (they definitely convinced me to check out a few new books while also crossing off a few on my list). Check out these ladies’ blog here, and also check them out on Goodreads!

      1. Thankies! That’s the worst part about not answering on a phone is that my computer doesn’t have the emojis that could work so wonderfully for it. XD ❀ Quick question, Sarah. I've been racking my brain, but did I ever ask who your favorite princess was?

      2. We talked about my Belle sheets and Jasmine costumes! I love Disney so much I went to see Beauty and the Beast by myself for the second time last week.

      3. Okay, that was what I must have been thinking about. I’m like, I don’t think I outright asked you but I knew it was there. But omigosh, I’m jealous. I keep meaning to go back and see it again, but I haven’t. D: Was it even better the second time around?

      7. I’m the same way. I think the live action one was cool it just doesn’t interest me much. I have a friend who loves it.

    1. OMIGOSH, YES, BIRDIE. Bigfoot is the best. My dad got me hooked on the stories as a kid, and now every time I see it now, I just freak out. Do you watch Finding Bigfoot? And do you know there are 2 YA books coming out about it? XD Spam, how dare you stop the Bigfoot fangirling from happening. XD


      1. HA! I got so excited when I saw Bigfoot on your list! All of my friends (except my sister) all tease me about it. My sister and I want to go one one of the bigfoot hunts some time.

        I do watch Finding Bigfoot, and all the documentaries, and any time there’s a new sighting online. My daughter and I love to just sit on YouTube and watch all the videos together. I’m passing it on to her.

        I totally already requested Sasquatch, Love, and other Imaginary Things. What’s the other one?

      2. Oh no! D: Bigfoot is the best. But omigosh, yesssssssssss. If you ever do, you will have to hunt me if you do and tell me about it. I think the BFRO does have groups that go and do it, but I think it’s only is special areas. D: If I wasn’t so scared of forests (or mainly the bugs inside them) and night, I would be with out there with you.

        But yessssssssss. My dad will send me stuff about them all the time, and we have to sit there and analyze it. But yes, getting your daughter hooked is amazing. XD

        And okay, I do remember you telling me about that now, I believe. Oops. XD But it’s called Shadows We Know By Heart by Jennifer Park. I just bought it the other day. It’s about this girl that meets this boy who lives with a bunch of Bigfoots in the woods. XD I saw there appears to be a middle grade book coming out about it too.


      3. I don’t know if we every will, but it’s fun to daydream about! My husband loves to tease us and make the bigfoot call, and of course he loves to poke fun at my love of Finding Bigfoot. My favorite is the Patterson footage. I’ve watched it a million times!

        I’ll have to go look up that book, haha.

      4. Lol, yes, very true! πŸ˜€ Awh, he can only do that if he’s truly calling for it. πŸ˜‰ Their calls, though, are quite skillful compared to when they first started. XD And yes! I still can’t believe they got it so clear and how no one has been able to fully debunk it.

        Lol, yes! Whenever it arrives in the mail, I will be definitely be starting it. XD Definitely hoping it will live up to our Bigfoot dreams. XD


      5. I love reading all the articles arguing about that footage too. I’m right there arguing from my couch, “But you can see muscle definition!”

      6. No! They totally didn’t have anything like we do know and the suits now are pretty XD Still don’t think they could make one now when they struggle to even make graphics (cough, Finding Bigfoot, cough cough).

I don’t know how many people wouldn’t be happy after watching that movie! And I’m always down for One Dance. I remember when I used to have that song on repeat a couple months back lol

    1. Thanks so much, Azia! ❀ I really, really appreciate that. And yes! I really don't know how anyone that wasn't happy before watching it wouldn't be happy after. It's so much fun. And lol, yes! I'm a sucker for any cover, any mention of the song. I definitely had it on repeat as well. XD
