Blogger of the Month 

I'm awarding this month's featured blogger to Em @ Piplup's Shadow! 

This is because I had the joy of meeting her for the first time, and I was so excited to finally be able to meet a blog buddy. You are so lovely both online and in person, and I hope that we can meet again someday! 

Personally of the Month 

So many great things happened this month! 

Firstly, I had my Spring Break which was so fun! I got to go to Niagara Falls, where I went into a wax museum and saw Harry Potter and the Hunger Games wax figures. I think they turned out pretty good. 

My blog got a bit of a makeover! My lovely cousin Megan @ Megan Inness created a header that I absolutely love! 

March 28, 2016

I'm going to talk about an entire day because it was nothing short of amazing. Not only was I able to attend the Penguin Teen on Tour event and meet many amazing authors, but I got to meet some amazing blog buddies, as well as new friends who convinced me to get a bookstagram! You can follow me over at @PaperbackP if you'd like :)

Also on that day, I was notified that I had won an Indigo giveaway for the first time, after years of trying! I was so excited.

This day was so great because I got to cross off many things on my bookish bucket list: I got to meet an author, get a signed book, meet blog buddies, and win a giveaway. The bookish god's were on my side, and I'm so thankful to all the advice and conversation that happened today. If you want a full recap of the event, click here. 

How was your month?! 

Emily @ Paperback Princess


  1. Sounds like you had a good month! :)

    Thanks for the shout-out Em, you rock! <3 :)

  2. I'm happy you like your header! And you know I'm here if you ever need a blog design.

    You're my blogger inspiration right now, it's so cool how you've met so many friends and blog about what you love. You've already convinced me to get a couple of books!

    1. Thank you Megan, that's so nice of you to say! Keep blogging about what you love, and it'll become the best part of your life! :)

  3. I'm so glad you had a good month - especially reading-wise! I'm so glad you enjoyed An Ember in the Ashes. I read it in the summer, and I really enjoyed it too! I can't wait for the sequel!!
    It's awesome that you got to meet a blogging buddy in real life. I'm yet to meet anyone I've met on here, but hopefully one day ;)

  6. Hey Emily! My friend read Rebel Belle and loved it (but she's just a Rachel Hawkins fan in general). :) Also, the new header looks so great! I'm glad you had fun on your Spring Break, I've never been to Niagara Falls but it looks so pretty. Something to visit in the future I guess!
