So, maybe August wasn’t as great as July. It still wasn’t bad! I listened to 2 audiobooks, read 4 books and ticked off two more categories for my PopSugar Challenge. It also includes more re-reading than usual, but I’ve already admitted to that so. There you have it. Somehow I am still 2 books behind in my Goodreads reading challenge (I want to read 100, I’ve read 65), but I hope to pick those up soon!
Weekly Wrap Up 6/12/16
HEY GUYS LOOK! A weekly wrap up! On … Tuesday. And only with Michaela’s face. I had a really good reason for this, I swear, and I’ll be talking about that next Monday. Anyways! It’s also like one of our shortest wrap ups to date so you can enjoy that.
- Michaela’s Review of Girls in the Garden by Lisa Jewell
- Gretchen’s From the Notebook: Are Genres False Labels?
#nostalgiajunkie Season 2 Announcement
If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you know that Bibliomancy for Beginners has been fighting over what book series we were going to do for the second season of Nostalgia Junkie: His Dark Materials or So You Want to be a Wizard. If you missed the first season, Nostalgia Junkie is a special series where we read books from our childhoods as adults, and last year we did the entire ten books of the Pendragon series by DJ MacHale.
We finally closed the poll for season 2, and here’s the announcement video!
Weekly Wrap Up + What We Read 5/22/16

Yes, I totally did mention that I was going to review Sarah J. Maas’s new book today. And there were no Thesis Thursday wrap up yesterday. Uh. Guys, it’s finals week. I’m a little busier than I thought I’d be BUT there is only one paper between me and freedom AND I did manage to get around to picking the winner of the Fingerprints of You giveaway:
This lovely lady will be getting the prize pack of fabulous swag and a signed book from Kristen-Paige Madonia … as soon as I can get around to sending that email out. If you didn’t win, don’t worry! You can still check out the great interview Kristen-Paige let me do and follow those links to buy that book AND Kristen-Paige’s newly released Invisible Fault Lines!
Weekly Wrap Up 4/17/16
Hey guys! Sadly, there is neither a “what we read” section to this post nor a video. This is a text only wrap up post, due to the fact that Michaela and I are (technically) currently on hiatus. Michaela left for vacation a few days ago, and she is without time or internet to commit to things such as videos. BUT! There were still plenty of goodies this week that you don’t want to miss, so here we go!
- Gretchen’s Worth It Wednesday: The Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce
- Michaela’s Review of East of West: We are All One by Jonathan Hickman
Announcement! Upcoming Mini Hiatus
This post is coming to you a day late and a dollar short, but it is important information for those who follow this blog and our YouTube channel. Michaela and I are about to either go on vacation or go crazy for the next nine days, and as such we need to take some time. We will miss you all!
From the Notebook: Giveaway Winner and Hiatus Annoucements
Hey there guys! This is my shortest video to date, and brings with it good and bad news. The good news is that we’ve chosen our giveaway winner! CONGRATS SHELLY HAMMOND! The bad news (well, sort of), is that after this week I’m taking a short hiatus. SO. Enjoy me looking so goddamn flustered and disheveled as I try to film this in between everything else happening in my life!
