I ordered Chinese take-out for the first time in over a year and had a foodgasm. I’m definitely feeling better this week – still stressed, but exercise, the nice weather, and my planner helped a lot! I also attempted to track my mood using a phone app for a few days (but I have a bad habit of installing and uninstalling apps). And James Clear is my new hero.
- I scrapped my reading schedule. So I don’t need to give an excuse for the lack of reviews this week, har har.
- I summarized the last two months of PB. You definitely won’t see that many books read in the next doubly monthly paper!
- I chose the three books that define me and asked you to do the same.
- Bookmammal @ Musings of a Bookmammal discussed the factors that make her DNF a book.
- Charlotte @ Gypsy Reviews talked about her Blogilates experience. Love seeing fellow bookish POPsters! 🙂
- Christine @ Readerly Musings asked if you prefer image- or text-heavy posts.
- Gillian @ Writer of Wrongs moviefied Marissa Meyer’s Cinder! Super cute movie poster and great actor choices.
- Jenna @ Jenna Does Books moviefied Andrew Smith’s Grasshopper Jungle! The actor for the praying mantis is so perfect for that role, just saying.
- Kelly @ Stacked compiled a list of realistic teen novels made into movies. I’m surprised by how many I’ve watched on this list!
- Lisa @ Read. Breathe. Relax. shared the top 5 pranks in YA literature.
- Tanya @ Girlxoxo asked if you think about other bloggers when you read a book. I do!
- A great discussion on whether or not we’re rushing kids out of picture books. I loved picture books and still think that they’re a necessary part of childhood, although I did move onto chapter books very quickly.

- In celebration of April Fool’s Day, a list of 10 of fiction’s finest tricksters.
- These kids’ love for books makes me super happy. I wish I was that awesome when I was a kid.
- Two New York Times rants in response to the question of what books you felt like you “should” read. I like Stevens’ ending remark in her rant: “Insisting people absolutely have to read a book you loved — what better way of telling them you love them?”
- You wish you had a kangaroo to promote your books. (And how is this kangaroo “not a pet”? It sure seems like one.)
