Beyond the Books: Holiday Beauty Haul

As much as I love reading and book blogging, I have a variety of interests outside of those hobbies that I love to chat about and share with others. I started Beyond the Books as a way to take a break from bookish content and feature some of my other favorite things! One thing you may not know about me: I LOVE the beauty blogging world. I was reading beauty blogs long before I knew book blogs existed, and to this day I still prefer watching a good beauty Youtube review rather than a book review. I love that for […]

The Blog Balancing Act: On Working Full Time and Keeping Up With Your Blog

I’ve mentioned it here and there over the course of the past 7 months, but I recently started working full-time at an amazing job in a big city. It was my biggest lifestyle change since graduating from college, and it has shaped and changed the course of my life in amazing ways. However, there’s no denying that is also significantly impacted my blogging, which up until I started this job had been one of my main focuses. Book blogging still remains my favorite hobby and one of my largest passions in life, and what I’ve learned is that I didn’t […]

Coveting Covers: Be Still My Shadowhunter Heart

Coveting Covers is a feature that highlights international or special/limited edition book covers that are not the “standard” ones sold in the US. I would love to add these covers to my collection! Perhaps one of the most talked about series right now, The Mortal Instruments books were recently released with all new paperback covers in the US, which are no doubt gorgeous (those spines!) However, a set of new covers released in the UK, Australia, and Ireland by Walker Books have caught my attention with their simple and colorfully stunning covers: Aren’t they gorgeous? Much less crowded than the […]

Pre-Order Priorities

Pre-Order priorities is a new feature that showcases what I’ve pre-ordered recently and am anxiously awaiting to arrive at my door! Release Date: March 29, 2016 I had a lot of mixed feelings about The Winner’s Curse, but I have to continue on with this series after the total cliff hanger ending of the previous book. Since I know that this particular cover will only be released in hardcover, I wanted to ensure I got it to match the rest of my collection! Release Date: April 5, 2016 After reading A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston, I’ve been craving more […]

Real Talk: Why is an Extensive Vocabulary So Intimidating?

Real Talk is an original feature here at Girl in the Pages where I’ll discuss random things that come across my mind in an honest and sometimes spontaneous manner. It may be about books, blogging, life, or anything else! I’ve noticed a trend. Many people will recommend to bloggers that they use only “accessible” vocabulary. No SAT or GRE tier words needed. Keep it simple, like you’re talking to a friend. Definitely keep reviews conversational and not too long. Now, if that’s your personal philosophy, that’s totally cool. But I’ve seen this advice given to so many newbie bloggers, and […]
