What I’ve Been Watching Lately

Inspired by Lauren @ Bookmarklit, I’ve been wanting to incorporate some more non-bookish things into my blog. Since Netflix is practically a hobby in and of itself these days, I am tagging along on her feature on showcasing what I’ve been watching lately! So basically all of the shows we’re watching right now are CW shows, but Jane the Virgin is one I’ve been watching since it’s initial release that really resonates with me. I come from a Latin family, so Jane’s over the top family dynamic is honestly not too different from my own (minus the accidental artificial insemination […]

The Nostalgia Project: The A-List | Review Round Up

I’m teaming up with Lauren from Bookmark Lit to reread the A-List series as part of her Nostalgia Project Feature. Check out my intro post here! Because there are so many books in the series (10!) Lauren and I will be doing mini review round ups for each book. Beware, major spoilers ahead! Book 1 | The A-List This book was pretty much everything I remembered- good girl, East Coast, WASPy Anna moves to LA in some sort of quarter life crisis, needing to “find” herself and let loose since her BFF is now dating her forever crush (not that […]

The Nostalgia Project: The A-List | Intro & Goals

My blogging twin Lauren over at Bookmark Lit has a wonderful feature called The Nostalgia Project, where she rereads past favorites and talks about how she views them now vs. when she originally read them and recaps her rereading experience of certain books as an adult. When I was recently unpacking my books into my new bookshelves and tweeted that I would love to do a re-read of my A-List novels, Lauren was 100% on board to revisit our high school reading days and suggested her Nostalgia Project Feature as the perfect way to showcase our reread. (Also, the gorgeous […]

Pretty Fierce Blog Tour | Author Q&A with Kieran Scott

I’m so thrilled to announce that today I’m hosting an interview with Kieran Scott, author of the recently released Pretty Fierce, a YA story filled with action, assassins, and fantastic family and friend relationships. Kieran has been a longtime favorite author of mine (the Private series was my one of my go-to series as a teenager!) and I’m absolutely honored to been granted the opportunity to ask her about her newest book! Author Q&A One of the highlights of Pretty Fierce for me was the inclusion of a protagonist with a diverse background. What inspired you to give Kaia a […]

Getting to Know My Goodreads Review Style | Discussion

I’ve been blogging since 2014 and using Goodreads even longer (since 2011!) but I’ve found that this year I am really trying to approach Goodreads with a clean slate. I’m in the middle of massively reorganizing my shelves, culling my “To-Be-Read” list, and updating missing reviews. However, one thing I’ve noticed is that there is a significant difference between how bloggers review on Goodreads. Some post their entire review verbatim as it is on their blog, some post a condensed version, some post their initial thoughts and reactions, and some do a combination of all three! In an effort to […]

At a later date I’ll be doing an in-depth post about my experience moving to being self-hosted, and celebrating with a tag/giveaway.

I’m Moving! Important Info!

Posted April 20, 2015 in Uncategorized / 15 Comments

Hello lovely followers! I’m coming to you today with a bit of a major announcement regarding the future of my blog, Girl in the Pages (girlinthepages.com). I’m going to be moving from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress.org site. My URL (girlinthepages.com) will stay the same! Why? I’ve loved my time at wordpress.com for the past 15 months book blogging and it’s helped me really grow my audience and content. It was a fantastic place to start my blog. At this time I feel like I’m ready to move to wordpress.org where I have more control over customizing my blog, using […]


Pardon the Dust!

Pardon the Dust!

As you may have noticed, some changes have been taking place! Since the one year anniversary of my blog I have been wanting to spruce up my images and branding, and I was recently inspired by Alicia over at A Kernel of Nonsense to use the spring season as an excuse to do some “spring cleaning” around my blog. My header has changed and I have a new button image to match (find it in my sidebar!) and I’ll be slowly changing some of my older graphics to match the new theme. Thanks so much for the understanding of the […]
