4 Year Blogiversary

It's been 4 years this month since I started my blog. On one hand, it doesn't feel like it should be that long and on the other, it feels like I've been blogging for longer. It's become such a part of who I am, that sometimes I don't even think about it. I just know I have to blog.  I've seen the book community go through quite a few ups and downs and right now, I consider us going through a bit of a down but I know we will pull through and be stronger than ever, we always do.  I have found some amazing reads from my fours years on this book, like one of my all time favorite series, ACOTAR. I've changed the name of this blog from The Book Goddess to The Butterfly Reader. I've made it up to four big bookshelves and two little ones (then sold two whole giant bookshelves and the little ones). I've gone through three jobs since I started this blog and really miss the first one. I wish they'd not have closed it down.  I've even gone through a horr

Top Ten Tuesday - Platonic Relationships In Books

This meme is now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl . Hello little butterflies! It's been a while since I've done this meme, honestly it's been a while since I've done much anything besides reviews. I hope to get back into the swing of things. Now onto the topic!  I don't usually think about about platonic relationships much, I more think about couples as I love romance but I do have a few that I really love. These aren't in any order really, just ones I wanted to share with you. There also won't be ten. Not even close. Cam and  Teresa  Hamilton I just love the way these two siblings interact and how they love each other so much. I wish I had a brother or sister like them.  Rose & Lissa They have such an amazing friendship that I envy. Garrett, Logan, Dean, and Tucker They are more than just teammates, they are great friends and help each other out. I love their relationship.  Celeste, Madeline, & Jane  I love how these guys just hang out and slow

Music Monday - Songs That Help My Anxiety

This meme is hosted over at Always Me . I have terrible anxiety. It gets so bad sometimes that I lose my mind, scared that I'm going to die. I've been getting better at taking control of it, trying not to let it get to me that badly and these songs help. If you're like me, hopefully they help you too.

#Smutathon TBR

I found this out through Twitter but it's two Booktubers that host. When I found this, it made my little heart so happy, I can get behind this readathon! Now, don't let the title fool you, it's not actually smut, just any romance book that has a sex scene in it. So a book like A Court of Mist and Fury, would count, even though it't not an erotic book.  This is hosted by  Lainey from   gingerreadslainey  and Riley from   Riley Marie . Dates: December 10th-16th  Challenges 1) Enemies to Lovers 2) Friends with Benefits 3) Fake Relationship 4) Slow Burn  5) Forbidden 6) Different Worlds 7) ? The 7th is one that you can vote for and I voted for Workplace Romance, hopefully it wins. So until I know which troupe has won, I won't choose any books for it.  Here is my choices for the challenges: Enemies to Lovers -  St-St-Stuffed Other than his most prized Lamborghini, Karl Andrews has nothing to his name. He’s down on his luck and his dollar, and his dream of becoming a prof

My Bought Virgin Wife - Mini ARC Review

She’s mine… But will her innocence break all my rules? I’ve never wanted anything like I want heiress Imogen Fitzalan. I married her to secure my empire—but my untouched wife has ignited an undeniable hunger in me. Desire beyond reason wasn’t my plan, yet now I have a new aim: to strip away her obedience, and replace it with a fierce passion to match my own… Feel the heat in this intense marriage of convenience romance. ARC Breakdown This was almost a perfect little romance novel! So freaking close! If not for the end where he runs off and leaves her alone for a long time....  Anyway, Imogen Fitzalan has never fit in, with her family, or the high society that she'd forced into. Now she's being forced to marry a man she doesn't know. A man that had once wanted to marry her older half sister... yeah, sounds crazy right? Well, it's all cute. Javier was actually a really nice guy, I felt so badly for him, growing up the way he did and it makes sense as to why he acts the wa

Guilty Pleasure Movies & TV Shows

I did this for books not long ago and thought I would do this for TV shows and movies. Hope you'll join me and let me know if you love any of these! Jennifer's Body This was such a flop but I loved it! I still think it's such a great dark comedy. Gossip Girl (TV) I found this show not long ago but I loved it even though I know it's not good. It pulled me in and I sucked in every episode.  Underworld (Movie Series) Again, I didn't realize how bad these movies were till my partner pointed it out (he's helped me see that a lot of my visual media is guilty pleasures).  The Arrangement (TV) This one is so bad that even I know it's bad! That being said, it still has me watching and waiting to know what will happen next but I'll admit to liking this show, ever. Except for this post. City of Bones (Movie) This one doesn't need much because I'm sure you've seen it but yeah, it's bad, but I still love it! Dynasty (TV) This show was what inspired t

Music Monday - Alice Chater

This meme is hosted over at Always Me . I still have no idea how I found this artist but I'm so glad I did! I love this kind of sound and hope it makes a comeback soon!
