Updates & Divergent Week :(

Hey guys . . . :/

Just when I thought things were getting better, everything basically went down the drain again. I’ve been really busy and stressed out lately, it’s just really hard to keep this blog going. I’m super sorry for leaving again, it’s just been really hard for me to update lately. Don’t you worry, I should probably be updating more regularly now, unless, you know . . . Please forgive me. I promised not to let you guys down and look what I did! I really feel like crying right now 😦 . . .

Please please please give me another chance, and tell your friends to check this blog out. I’m hardly getting any views on this blog and it’s really discouraging me from still going . . .

As for Divergent Week. I’ve decided just not to do it after all. It’s a big pain to get everything ready, and with the lack of views I’ve been getting, well, it’s enough to change my mind. Don’t worry, I might have it a bit later. As for those who entered to PDF contest, thank you! I’ll still be sending out your PDF copies. I got quite a few emails, so it’ll be fun to pick them out. Your free copies should come about next week 🙂

Once again, please forgive me. I’m really going to try and get myself un-stressed, but I have testing coming up soon, and grades are closing, so I also really have to pay attention to my schoolwork. I’m really sorry if I have another not-posting time like this. If that happens you’ll know why. I just ask you to please help me promote my blog 🙂 No hard feelings?

Earthquake & Divergent Week

Whoa! Last night was really crazy. At about 9:09 p.m. PST, I was baking cookies like I’d mentioned in a post earlier, when the room began to shake hard. Apparently, there had been a 5.1 earthquake close in my area in California! Scar-y, if I may tell you myself, xD

Alright. That’s enough about earthquakes 🙂 I wanted to tell you that Divergent Week starts tomorrow! So excited!!! Remember to stay tuned, and keep sending in those forms! 😀

Friday Has Officially STARTED!

Happy Friday everybody! I’m so excited and happy. I woke up an hour late this morning and I just decided, “Hey, what the heck. I won’t go to school today.” So I stayed home and slept, ate, and read – practically everything I do all day 🙂 I don’t consider Friday to actually start until nighttime, you know? Let the party begin!

Divergent Week is starting on Sunday. I am SOOOOO excited!! Still waiting for those PDF entires, though – try to submit yours to thecrazybookshelf@gmail.com soon. I can’t wait to upload my Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant reviews.

I believe that’s everything I have to say. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to throw some cookies in the oven and listen to some songs. Yum . . . this day just gets better and better, doesn’t it?

New Books, My Time

Hey guys and girls 🙂 Me again. Just wanted to let you all know that I finished a new book today, Followers by Anna Davies (really short book, I recommend it!) and I also checked out Uglies and Pretties by Scott Westerfeld. I am super excited to start rereading those books, they’re some of my favorites. I also purchased the first Kingdom Keepers book on my iPod app called iBooks (check that out!), so be looking forward to new reviews, kay?

This is my first time on the internet today. Hopefully things aren’t going to be this busy in the future, but watch out in case I post a review pretty late. I’m trying to aim to post reviews about 6:00 or 6:30 Pacific Standard Time, but some days I might be busier than usual. Really sorry about that. I hope to see you guys tomorrow! 😀

Social Media & Updates *EDITED*

So many updates, don’t you think? And all in a two-day time span. That’s so crazy. Now, let me get to the point of this post:

About Social Media:

I am in the works of creating a Twitter account. I’ve never had a Twitter account before so please bear with me! I’m going to probably create it in the next week or so, since I’m super busy with reviews and stuff. As for GoodReads, would you like me to create one especially for The Crazy Bookshelf? It’s really up to you guys 🙂 Leave some comments on your opinions, kay?

About Updates:

I guess the social media stuff counts as updates, right? But there’s more. I’m most likely going to be posting the Divergent Week agenda tomorrow, it just depends on how much homework/studying I have to do. That’s scheduled for tomorrow but it could be put up by Saturday at the latest. Also, don’t forget to fill out your Divergent PDF form! Like I mentioned before (did I?), I will be giving away 3 PDF copies of Divergent by Veronica Roth and 1 PDF copy of both Divergent and Insurgent away. Be expecting a ton of new reviews, including Alphas by Lisi Harrison and LA Candy by Lauren Conrad. I’m still about two weeks behind my calendar of reviews, so be expecting a TON in the month of April! I think instead of uploading a whole bunch of reviews this week I’ll just save them all for April 🙂 which means I’ll be changing some of my schedule around. Please bear with me through this! I love you all so much ❤

20 Followers? OMG! & Updates

So, as of right now, I have 21 followers. How did I miss getting 20 followers in the first place?! That’s amazing! Thank you all for taking time to read my blog. It really means a lot to me, you know?

In honor of getting my first 20 followers, I’ve decided to create a GoodReads & Twitter account for The Crazy Bookshelf. I do currently have a GoodReads account but that’s a personal account, so . . . I’ll create an all-new one for you all 🙂 I really appreciate your support.

So, it’s time for some updates. I’ve just finished a few new books, so that’s going to be awesome, and I got three brand new ones today. Be looking forward to awesome reviews in April. The three books I did receive, unfortunately, are very small, but I got them because I was looking for a light read over Spring Break.

Additionally, I’m going to head over to my local library and pick up a series I read lightly last year but never really took the time to understand. If you are really curious, they’re part of the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. I’m super excited to reread those! I’ve also read some other good books, so be looking to see those reviews.

As for me, I’ve been doing fine. I keep telling you guys I’ve been having big problems and stuff but so far I’ve been doing okay. It’s really upsetting thinking about what happened in the past few weeks but I’m sure I’ll be able to get through it 🙂 Once again, I really appreciate all you guys and gals do for me.

I am TOTALLY  ready for Spring Break! Depending on how soon I finish books (and how long it takes me to write reviews, since my calendar’s TOTALLY backed up) be expecting a TON coming soon! A week or two afterward things might slow down a bit, because of testing, you know.

Alrighty then, so I think that’s just about it. I can’t wait for April because, you know, a new month means a new beginning! At least to me it does. I really love all of you and I really hope you enjoy my blog.

Be expecting more reviews coming soon!
