Its Monday, March 3rd, and the month has started out in snow here in Central VA!
If you’ve been paying attention I didn’t post a February Wrap-up/Obsessions post and that is because I am still trying to figure out how this whole blog thing works.
I decided that when I obsess, I obsess too hardcore to have a new obsession each month so that just doesn’t work.
You can just assume that I’m obsessed with books for the month of Feb. because I am always obsessed with books.
Today, I don’t have a book review for you. If you follow me on Goodreads or Twitter then you’ve seen that I have been reading (and loving) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater and am now reading The Dream Thieves (the sequel in the series). The reason I’m not reviewing it? Because I’m going to review both books together and really just do a gushy love fest post about it because I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. I haven’t loved a book this much since A Discovery of Witches and I haven’t loved a Young Adult novel this much since Harry Potter.
Not reviewing this Monday had me thinking about what to do instead and that led me to an idea of how to slow my roll. I won’t be posting reviews EVERY Monday because, I’m not going to lie, it’s been stressing me out a little.
What I will do, every other Monday, are some Book Memes, more Book-ish posts, and some short stories! I’ve been working on some shorts that I’m really excited to post!
Today, I have a Meme. What’s a Meme?
I looked up how to explain it on the good ole Wikipedia:
A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena
This Meme is called: THE INTRODUCE YOURSELF MEME

Thanks for getting to know a little bit more about me! I would love to know a bit about you! So, if you want to answer a few of them in the comments or pick up this Meme and put it in your own blog please feel free to do so! It was quick and fun and I enjoyed it.
