Literature Approved

I usually don’t accept products other than books for review because I want this site to remain an only book reviewing site, however every reader needs a good book lamp, and today I am reviewing and giving away two awesome book lamps!

First and foremost, I received both of these products free for the purpose of this review and was not required to write a positive review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.

The giveaway instructions are after the reviews of the lamps.

Interview with Lily


Who would’ve thought?

But yes, I still am part of the blogging world. Our computer has just been having issues, so I am unable to post that frequently. Since I don’t have much time to do anything, I will just be giving you an interview.

Yes, I know. Totally NOT interesting. And I am sorry about that. But once I have more time, I have a DIY coming up soon. So be looking for that. 🙂


Ok, now onto the interview.

Lily, from Uniquely Myself, also requested to do one, so here it is! Be sure to go check out her blog when yo done. 😉

Interview with Lily:

Tell us a little bit about yourself, who are you?

I’m Lily, a Christian reader, writer and blogger! I love HP, unicorns and creativeness. My dream is to become a published author, adopt twin girls, and contribute towards world peace.

Hello there! Wow, looks like you already have plans. That’s always a good thing. 🙂

What inspired you to start a blog?

I really wanted to make new friends, do something that I would enjoy a lot, and just try something new! Also, blogging really fuels my passions!

That is definitely a great inspiration! I’m glad you joined the blogging universe.

What’s the story behind your blog name?

I wanted my blog do be unique and to be ‘me’ – therefore the Uniquely Myself part. As for Ramblings of a Tween Girl – it just seemed ‘right’, so…yeah, that’s what I choose. XD

That’s ok. Sometimes blog names come really quickly. It still sounds great.

How long have you been blogging for?

About a month, and I’m loving it!

So you’re pretty new to blogging yet. Well then, welcome. 😀

What’s your blogging story?

I’m not sure… I wanted to create a blog, I started one, and I try to post every day?

That’s something! 😜

What’s your favorite post on your blog so far?

I honestly have no idea. 😛 Hmmmm… I think that my favorite post is the one that my readers enjoyed reading most!

Great choice.

Who’s your favorite blogger?

Well, Loren from Happy House of AG inspired me, soo… her! But every blogger is great!

Loren is a great blogger. I enjoy reading her posts from Blue Eyes Grey Eyes too.

What are some of your favorite hobbies?

Reading, writing, blogging, and procrastinating!

Haha! I love to procrastinate. 😉

What’s your favorite thing to do?

Read! I love books.

Who doesn’t??

If you could have one food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Mac and cheese! Or pasta with pesto! I am terrible at making decisions…

Same here, Lily. Same here.

Doughnuts or ice cream? Which type?

Ice cream, I think! Oreo flavored. Yum!

I’m a huge fan of anything Oreo-flavored. YUM.

Thanks for letting me do an interview, Suzy!



You’re welcome, Lily! I’m glad I got to interview you. 🙂

Random Musings:

I sold my first Etsy item the other day! *dances happy jig* 😀 You probably don’t care, but I was just pretty excited and thought I’d share that with y’all.

Don’t mean to pester, but if you could give Madi some questions to answer for a Q & A post on CnC, that would be great! 🙂

Book Review: Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by Rick Riordan

Oh yeah.



We would like to interrupt this report with an important announcement.

Me and Madi are planning to swap Q & A posts. She answers questions that people have asked on this blog and I answer questions that people have asked on her blog. So, if you want that is, please give us some answers for her to answer! Just comment them down below, and we’ll take care of the rest. 🙂

The report you were listening to will now commence. Thank you for your cooperation.

In Which I Share My Pitifully Written Random Writings

First and foremost, I would like to apologize to everyone for not being very active the past two weeks. Many, many things have been going on around here, and I just haven’t had a time to be able to sit down and write posts. But I will hopefully be posting more frequently now. 🙂

ANYwho, Loren had a post about where she just wrote what came to her mind from images. I got a tad bit inspired and decided I would make my own little version. Mine are around a paragraph/2 paragraphs each.

Enjoy. 🙂

1920’s Black & White


I watched as she tore down the pavement. Her once elegant dress clinging to her legs as she tried to run through the drenching rain. Her one arm swang back and forth, sometimes windmilling, trying to help her keep her balance on the slippery sidewalk in her three inch heels, while her other hand tightly held onto the black umbrella. Unfortunately for her, the umbrella didn’t help much and she was extremely soaked, but it didn’t really seem like she cared. Continue reading “In Which I Share My Pitifully Written Random Writings”

Book Review: The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin

If you hadn’t heard already about my TBR stack, this was one of the books. I was extremely excited about reading it, and really loved reading it, so I’m gonna do a review for all of you so you can be excited about it too. 🙂

The-Thing-About-Jellyfish-206x300Title: The Thing About Jellyfish

Author: Ali Benjamin

Length: 252 pages

Genre: MG Contemporary

Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers

Source: My Library

Blurb: After her best friend dies in a drowning accident, Suzy is convinced that the true cause of the tragedy must have been a rare jellyfish sting-things don’t just happen for no reason. Retreating into a silent world of imagination, she crafts a plan to prove her theory–even if it means traveling the globe, alone. Suzy’s achingly heartfelt journey explores life, death, the astonishing wonder of the universe…and the potential for love and hope right next door.

My Current TBR Stack

Long time, no post, huh? Yeah I’m sorry ’bout that. Things have been SOO hectic the past few days that I just haven’t been able to sit down and write a post. But now I’m here! And to make up for the long break, I’m gonna do a book post.



We went to the liberry yesterday and got a bunch of books! And the awesome thing is, they recently restocked and had a huge shelf full of *NEW* books. Which is great, because our library is a pretty small library and I’ve read almost all of the books they have that I’m allowed to read. So (of course) I got a BUNCH of new books, and I thought I would share with you my finds. 🙂 Continue reading “My Current TBR Stack”

Wordcrafters by Allison & Josie | My Entry

A few days ago, I entered into a little challenge that Allison and Josie created together called Wordcrafters! She has a randomized list of all the girls participating, and each one writes a chapter of the story. Once someone is done, the next person in line will begin writing their chapter where the previous person left off. You can add anything you want into your chapter, just so long as it fits with the story.

Anyways, it has now come to my turn! I have my little piece that I wrote down below.

(If you want to see all the previous chapters of the story, go to Allison’s page right here)

Enjoy! 🙂

Wordcrafters Chapter 7:

Alalia trudged slowly and tiredly along the yellow brick road. She had been walking on it for at least two hours, and she was beginning to get extremely exhausted. All of this fairy tale craziness was starting to get a little overwhelming. Alalia sighed. And this wasn’t just any ordinary sigh. This was a toes-to-head, from-her-very-sorrowful-depths kind of sigh. All she wanted to do was get home. All she wanted to do was get out of all this big mess and go back to a normal life. There were so many twists and turns everywhere that she just didn’t know what would happen next. Alalia was really starting to get pretty tired of this. As her boredom grew, Alalia started listing off all the fairy tales she had met this afternoon. Continue reading “Wordcrafters by Allison & Josie | My Entry”
