Happy Easter! For those of you who celebrate, I hope you had a blessed Holy Week and a joyous weekend! Also, Chag Sameach to those who’re celebrating Passover! For those who celebrate neither, I hope you had a good break over the weekend at least.
My week was alright. Nothing exciting happened. Although according to my Literally stats, I finished reading 5 books in the past week, so at least I have something to show for the last seven days. Burying my nose in so many books probably explains why I didn’t post much the past week. I was more in the mood to read than write. Other than that there’s nothing new from me.

BLOGGERS & BLOGGING
- Kayla @ The Thousand Lives shares her experiences and things she learnt at the LA Festival of Books.
- Hannah @ So Obsessed took it upon herself to remind everyone to think before tweeting. She also included five questions to ask yourself before posting a tweet.
- Nikki @ The Paper Sea asks if you boycott books in order to bring across your opinions.
- Cassie @ Happy Book Lovers considers YA movie adaptations.
- Miranda @ Tempest Books makes it a point to take notes while reading. She finds it a lot easier to write her reviews that way.
- Hazel @ Stay Bookish is a supporter of active reading, which by the way, involves writing in books. Even though I can’t bring myself to write in books (besides textbooks), I do think her argument for it has a lot of merit.
- Sophia @ Loving Lit is thinking of all the ways reading in public can be embarrassing.
- Marianne @ Boricuan Bookworms breaks down her book review process.
Being brave isn’t the same as not being scared, though. It means going through with something even if it totally terrifies you.
Bravery is often mistaken with fearlessness. They’re not the same. Being brave means overcoming that fear which threatens to dissuade us from things that need to be done. Fearlessness simply means the absence of fear. Thus being afraid is not always the problem. Allowing ourselves to be paralyzed by fear is what stands in the way between us and our goals, not the fear itself.
