If you’ve ever wanted to ask me something, now’s the time!

I’ve been thinking about my blog’s one-year anniversary on WordPress for a while now, and it turns out that it’s coming up on March 19! I’m still deciding everything that I want to do, but I know one piece of my celebration will be a Q&A session!

But, for that to happen, I’m hoping that someone will actually have a question for me! You can ask me about reading, blogging, my cat, or whatever you want! Feel free to leave your questions in the comments, or you can DM me on Twitter or send me a message on Goodreads if you’d prefer.

The answers will be posted on my blogging anniversary, March 19, 2019.

Thank you in advance to anyone who participates! ❤

Ultimate 2019 TBR

Between reading challenges, new releases, and ARCs, I’ve got a huge stack of books that I want to read this year. We’re already 20 days into 2019, but I figured that I would compile a list of the books I definitely want to get to this year so I can hold myself accountable!

ALREADY OWNED

UPCOMING RELEASES

BOOKS TO GET FROM THE LIBRARY


I’ll be checking in once in June and again at the end of the year. Hopefully I’ll make some good progress on my TBR! Have you read any of these books? Which should I read first? Let’s talk in the comments!

Giveaway: Signed copy of The Wicked King!

Today is a very exciting day because it’s the first of (hopefully) many collaborations I’ll be doing with my favorite blogger, Daniel, this year. Today, the two of us are bringing you another giveaway! Because he’s the best and also the coolest, Daniel went to a Holly Black event last night and picked up an extra signed copy of The Wicked King to give away to one of our followers!

I haven’t read The Wicked King yet — I’m still working my way through The Cruel Prince — but I’ve heard such great things about it and I’m so excited to be able to do this giveaway!

The rules for the giveaway are simple:

  1. You have to be following both me and Daniel!
  2. You can enter through the Rafflecopter!
  3. One follower will win a signed copy of The Wicked King by Holly Black!
  4. The giveaway is open internationally! (The winner will need to provide us with their mailing address.)
  5. The winner will be drawn on January 19, 2019!

Good luck!

Only semi-book related: I met my favorite person!

If you’ve been following my blog for really any length of time longer than maybe a day, you probably know that Daniel at Page to Page is my favorite person ever. Let’s see here….

What I’m getting at is that it’s no secret, he’s my favorite. I’m not sure that there are enough heart emojis or crying emojis or words in the English language to describe how happy I am that I finally met my favorite person, but it’s a thing that happened and I still can’t really believe it.

We went to Dollywood! And let me tell you something, I never do anything ever and I had not been on a rollercoaster in at least fifteen years, but I had the best day. THE BEST DAY. Like, I don’t know if there’s ever been a greater day in the history of all of my life. Maybe I’m gushing a little bit too much right now, but I can’t really lie and be like “oh, it was fine I guess” because it wasn’t fine. It was the best.

I’m glad that I have photographic evidence of this day because I’m not sure that I’m 100% convinced that it actually happened even though I was there.

Really, though, how much fun did we have. We had so much fun. I basically died on every single rollercoaster, but it was so much fun. Look at how traumatized I look. But in a fun kind of way.

We also did an escape room! And I had never done an escape room before, but it was a lot of fun! We even escaped! (Although to be fair, I would not have escaped without Daniel. And maybe also the three old women on our team, but mostly Daniel.)

Given the opportunity, I could probably go on for another 40,000 words or so. I could talk about the pancakes(!!), the spooky mine rollercoaster(!!), the Authentic Mexican Restaurant(!!), and how the entire day was the most perfect day I have ever had. Mostly, though, I just want to end this post by saying thank you to Daniel for sending the email that started all of this.

I could not possibly be happier that we met.


Have you ever met up with an online friend in person? CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THAT I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET MY FAVORITE PERSON? (Because I can’t.) Have you been to Dollywood and do you agree with me that it’s an amazing place? Let’s talk in the comments!

About the Blogger!

Today I’m mixing things up with a slightly different post! I saw both Cassandra and Clarissa do this About the Blogger post recently and I figured that, since I recently hit 1,000 followers, it was as good a time as any to re-introduce myself. 🙂

This post was originally created by Bethany @ Bibliophile’s Binge.


Name: I am Sara with no H.

Age: 28

Education: I have a bachelor’s degree in Linguistics and Spanish. I’m also a CPC, which is a certified medical coder.

Location: Right in the middle of New Jersey.

Job: Given the CPC credentials, you probably won’t be that shocked to find out that I am a… medical coder. I’m the billing manager at a dermatology practice.

These are a few of your favorite things: my top four things are cats, coffee, books, and music. ❤

Is there a story behind your blog’s name? My story is actually the same as Cassandra’s story, which is pretty fitting since she is also The Bibliophagist. 🙂 Way back in 2013, I was trying to think of a fitting name for a book blog and googled words for book lovers. “Bibliophagist” came up and I thought… one who devours books, that’s me. I don’t know if I necessarily love the name of my blog anymore, but I am not nearly creative enough to come up with a new one.

What are you looking forward to right now? My trip to Tennessee next weekend, which I honestly can’t believe is actually happening. 😭😭

Favorite ice cream: There are really very few ice cream flavors that I don’t like… I love coffee ice cream. I also love cheesecake ice cream. I also love chocolate chip cookie dough, cookies and cream, and mint chocolate chip ice cream. I love most Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and every flavor of Talenti that I’ve ever had. I also like just plain vanilla. I just really love ice cream.

Coffee or tea? And how do you take it? Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon. I just put half and half in my coffee and I don’t put anything in my tea. I usually drink either ginger tea or minty tea, but really, anything that isn’t straight black tea is fine with me.

Favorite thing to do on a rainy day: Honestly… I usually just read on rainy days. I guess if you want to know some things that I might do aside from reading… I like to sew. I also might get caught up on tv shows, although I don’t watch that much tv. Sometimes I also have dance parties all by myself. 🙂

Favorite movies: I don’t watch a ton of movies these days, but one of my all-time favorites is Across the Universe! I also watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail with my best friend approximately twelve million times when we were in high school, so that’ll always be one of my favorites too.

Favorite books: I think that my favorite book is The Hating Game. But I have a whole favorites page if you’re interested!

One item on your bucket list: I really want to take a trip all by myself!

Scariest thing you’ve ever done: Probably moving halfway across the country when I was 22 years old. I’m not really sure if it was a good decision or not, but I would absolutely not be the person I am today if I hadn’t done it.

Fun fact: Between Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin, I have been to more Andrew McMahon concerts in my life than probably all other concerts put together. One time I 🎵 waited for him in the rain, in the parking lot 🎵 and it was horrible but it also kind of made my life because I was living out the lyrics to one of his songs. You get a million bonus points and you’re my new best friend if you know what song I’m referencing.


I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me! What’s a fun fact about you? What’s your favorite ice cream and how do you take your coffee? Let’s talk in the comments!
