Hi, I'm Dana.

We all go through phases of our lives, whether we dye our hair different colors or serial date all the wrong boys. For me, my phases are a little different. I become extremely passionate about different things. From, reading, to blogging, to movie watching, to room decorating, thrift store shopping, to DIYing, to knitting, to sewing to youtubing, to spending every waking moment applying for scholarships so I can scrape enough money together to get to attend my dream school. 

I know I'm not the only one who does this. Which is why after the initial thrill of being a blogger and having people read me and sometimes comment and send me book requests every few days it started to getting hard to keep it up. I started slipping. stopped blogging as much. It used to be right after I finished a book, then when I remembered to do it. I kept adding books onto my TBReviewed list, until I couldn't even remember what the books were about and ended up throwing the list out.

Then something really scary happened.

I stopped reading.

Okay, I didn't really stop, I just drastically slowed down. From my before 1-2 per week turned into 1 per month. I didn't really seek books out and my overflowing bookshelves contained more unread than read. I barely logged on to blogger and stopped writing down release dates and obsessively researching my authors. 

I'm not really sure how it happened. Just that it did.

The only thing that didn't change was... you. 

I still get an email for a review request about once a week. I still get daily page views. and after thinking to myself "why the hell not?" and taking a new book a few weeks ago I realized that this blog foundation that i had once loved so much and felt so passionate about should not go to waste. 

So I'm working on a change. I'm going to try to get back into it. But this time I'm going to do whatever I want. be it a quote or a trailer, a rambling of my life. (which i will probably do more of, because the most posts that are most liked are the ones that are about me, not the books) 

I'm aware that people might not read this. And I'm not sure that I even care. I anticipate giving this blog a total makeover and starting over again, fresh. 

cause its definitely time for a change in pace.

New years resolutions...

Mine this year are pretty simple. Along with all the health and fitness goals that I usually never keep I have some bookishnerd ones thrown in there as well.

1. Read 1 classic novel per month. Not only will I look and feel smarter but I may finally understand when people allude to them.

2. Write 1 short story per week. A bit more difficult but certainly necessary. I really need to write more. the book before I see the movie. Something I always plan on doing.

4. READ ALL THE BOOKS ON MY SHELVES. I'm a bit of a shopping addict. Right now its clothing. It used to be books. More then I could read. I have probably 100 that remain unread. I joke that I'm saving for the apoclypse. But seriously. It would be awesome if I could finish them all.

What were yours?

Xo, Dana

It's been too long

Seriously way too long.

I have excuses you know, nothing you care about I'm sure, but all the same.

plus i read like 2 books per month now.

It was actually Bella Forest who reminded me, asking me to review an ebook of hers called A shade of vampire. Sounds interesting, but im not quite sure i even have time to read my own books, or you know, do homework.

I started a new blog, for personal chatting and such called what else?

but i barely update it. It has some pretty personal stuff on it, but just so you know, most of the names are changed.

anyways bookish wise ive been reading a lot of books just because movies of those books are coming out.

Like The Host

don't you just want to cry from happiness?

or Warm Bodies? This looks hilarious! and is next on my list.

so many book movies...
Beautiful Creatures!
( I had this book on my shelf for years, the trailer inspired me to actually read it, and it was really good! currently reading the sequel)

and lastly and bes-tly THE CITY OF BONES

I cant wait! I have to admit, i was a bit reserved about Jamie, but now he just looks amazing and totally sexy. still not a Lilly fan though. something about the fact that shes a horrible actress.....

alright. last day before break tomarrow, I should get some sleep.

50 shades of gray???

Despite the fact that i went to flordia a few weeks ago and counted over 12 women reading it on the beach, Im still quite not sure why loads of women are reading "mommy porn" in public... but the silver lining is dozens of hilarious videos. (remember some content is pg-13)

Like Ellen trying to do the audio book version....
an SNL version...

and my Faveroite, 50 shades the musical!!

lol. If youve read it and have an opinion, leave a comment
