Monday Motivation: Truthwitch

Hey ya’ll! Unfortunately I spent the whole weekend sick and recovering—which is why I wasn’t super active on here the past week—and while I’m glad to feel better today, I wish it wasn’t Monday and that I had more time off I could actually enjoy. The quote for this week is from Susan Dennard’s Truthwitch. I hope you guys all had a better weekend than me and let me know what you need motivation for in the comments!

“If you wanted to…you could bend and shape the world.”


Monday Motivation: Illuminae

Hey guys! I went home this weekend to take in the fall weather and had an absolutely great time. Unfortunately everything passed way too quickly, especially with all the traveling. And I don’t have today off, even though it’s (sort of) a holiday and my roommates got to stay home and sleep in. Obviously I was jealous. Anyway, I’m hoping to kick this week’s but and make it to the weekend again already. The quote this week is from Illuminae. Let me know what you need motivation for in the comments!

“Perhaps bravery is simply the face humanity wraps around its collective madness.”

Monday Motivation: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

It’s officially October! 🍂🍁 I love the summer heat, but there’s just so much fun fall stuff that I can’t resist. I’ve already gone full fall at my apartment, buying cider and cider doughnuts, mums and pumpkins. This weekend I’m hoping to pick some apples. I’m hoping for a low-key week at work, fingers crossed. Let me know what you need motivation for this week in the comments! The quote from this week is from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. 

“I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.”

Monday Motivation: They Both Die at the End

Hey everyone! So I went to the Boston Teen Author Festival this weekend, where I had a great time and picked up this beauty. I haven’t read any of Adam’s other work, but have heard wonderful things, so I’m excited to have this on my shelf. While the festival was fun—and I’ll have a post going up soon talking about what I did and who was there—it also ate up half of my weekend, and now I’m playing catch-up which is kind of stressful.

Monday Motivation: Dorothy Must Die

Hey ya’ll. My weekend went by wayyyyy too fast. I had to work an event most of Saturday, which was great because I got overtime, but like not great because at the same time then all I had was Sunday; and while I wanted to relax I also had shit to get done. Hopefully I can get through this week pretty quickly and onto the weekend. The quote this week is from Dorothy Must Die, I just love the books in this series naked, how about you?

“You don’t need wheels on your house to get somewhere better. All you need is something to give you that extra push.”

Monday Motivation: The Crown’s Game

This week is going to be complete torture for me, I already know it. I’ve only had a four-day work week the past two weeks because of Labor Day, but this week is five full days and we have an event I have to work Saturday—so that’s six straight days and I’m just not prepared. It’s going to hit me so hard, so I really need some motivation and some rest. This week’s quote is from The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye. Let me know what you need motivation for in the comments!

“Imagine, and it shall be.
There are no limits.⁠⁠⁠⁠”

Monday Motivation: The Winner’s Kiss

Monday, again! I have today off for a holiday, thankfully. I need it after moving. Things are starting to come together and settle down, so I’ll probably do a room and shelf tour soon. Downside is our wifi already went down and they can’t come until tomorrow (that’s four days with it down) so I’m trying to go to cafes and crank out as much blog stuff as I can. Let me know what y’all are up to this week in the comments! The quote I have for you is from The Winner’s Kiss, I need to reread the first book in this series before continuing, but reading the quotes from this last book motivated me so much, they just all sound beautiful.

“You don’t need to be gifted with a blade. You are your own best weapon.”

Monday Motivation: The Darkest Minds

So the other week I mentioned I was coming out of a blogging slump and that I was gonna try to step it up with both blogging and commenting…and I failed. So this past weekend I moved apartments, and it was probably unrealistic to set that goal right before I moved. The last week I’ve been in a packing and cleaning craze, and I’m still really settling in. But again, goal this week is to get back to my normal blogging and commenting schedule. Maybe once everything is set I’ll give you all a tour of my new room. Let me know what you need motivation for this week in the comments, for me it’s still definitely moving and unpacking!
