how to own MORE books for LESS money // + our very first giveaway!!!

We bookdragons love the library.

Why wouldn’t we? I mean, it’s an incredible selection of books for absolutely no cost (unless, you know, you don’t turn it in on time). Seems like the perfect deal to me! I’ve even written a post about the glory of the library and why it should NEVER EVER DIE.

But, dream with me for a minute. Once in a while, we just really want a book that doesn’t have bent flaps or random scribbles or pages stained with unknown fluids. We want a book that is clean and beautiful and ALL OURS PLEASE. How cool would it be to have all those pretty books on one shelf??? cough @paperfury cough

Unfortunately, neither you nor I can spend all our money on these little paper treasure troves.* We need more than just the tears we cry after the death of our favorite characters to survive. So, logically, the only solution we have is to… get CHEAP OR FREE BOOKS.

But where, praytell, do we get these inexpensive books? Wellll, you can find all of that info right here, and maybe even win a free book of your own from our very first giveaway! LET’S GET STARTED, FRIENS.


*we live in caves of solitude and therefore have no income #sorrynotsorry 🙃

12 Squeal-Worthy Books To Read Before Summer Ends

My favorite part about summer has to be the extra reading time.

What little bookworm can resist the thought of summer? Imagine it — there are now whole days free in your schedule where you can simply lie on the floor of your room, watching the rays of the summer sun reflect off your coffee mug and warm the off-white pages of the book in your hands. Summer.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the summer I was expecting this year, and I didn’t get as many awesome free days as I’d hoped. Nevertheless, I picked up every book I could find and read all that I could. Summer’s almost over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t squeeze in a few last-minute reads.

If you’ve already finished your summer TBR list (or you didn’t make one in the first place, that’s okay too), I’ve compiled a list of 12 out-of-this-world books to read before we head back to school next month. And, in my not-so-humble opinion, these are some of the best books ever.

YA/Classic Romances (The Good, The Bad, & The Tragic [PLUS SURVEY RESULTS HEH HEH])

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! The day of love and happiness (that usually ends with those chalk candies all over the place, eww) and buying expensive stuff to bestow on your other half!

Unless, you know, you’re single like me and spend the day eating all the chocolate cake in close proximity 🙂

But, for bookworms, this is also the day where we get to go crazy over our literary crushes and imagine all out OTPs in those corny ads on TV. Because if we aren’t ‘in a relationship,’ then at least let us pour over our books and scream over our ships, okay??

Speaking of ships… that’s what we’re talking about today. We’re going to go through all the different types of relationships in YA fiction (and some other things, too, hehe) and how some of them are stupid and some of them are THE BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO BOOKIES.

So, grab your chocolate cake and let’s get started.

8 Writer & Bookworm Stereotypes (That May Or May Not Be True I’m Not Sure??)

Stereotypes. We talk about them all the time in the writing and blogging world, and that’s mostly because they’re controversial. Should our characters conform to stereotypes? Should writers use stereotypes as bases for characters, even if just in certain circumstances? It’s kinda old, at this point.

WELL HAHA GUESS WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT! *pretends people can’t read the title of the post*

It’s preeety clear that writers and bookworms are stereotyped just as much as our precious characters, and it’s reflected in the media – EVEN IN OUR OWN BOOKS WHY?? And a lot of them aren’t actually true!

But then… some of them are true!

shrug

You know what, I’m just going to let the post speak for itself.
