Hey everyone! We just reached 213 followers and I’m absolutely shocked we made it past fifty.

Today’s post is a (rather early) welcome to June and a discussion of my favourite sibling relationships! Check to see if yours made the list because there are so many amazing fictional siblings. What does make a sibling relationship more realistic in literature and movies? Well, come and find out!

Book Reviews: The Grisha Trilogy and The Princess Diaries

Hey everyone! Recently I’ve been a lot more active on Goodreads and been reading a lot more, too. It astounds me every time I see someone so organized with their reading: setting themselves a monthly TBR, having read and reviewed a classic every month, their shelves so organized! Inspired, I put together an extra post (which will pop into your inboxes every once in a while,) and it will have some book reviews!

With the last Summer Diaries scheduled for the Sunday after the next, my summer will be done, just as quickly as it came! It seems only yesterday I was writing the first post.

Books I read and reviewed (click to see the review):

The Grisha Trilogy
The Princess Diaries

summer diaries iii: never have i ever…

Hey everyone! First off, I just wanted to thank you all because I just reached 100 followers on Pretty Little Scribbles! The past two weeks have been amazing, and I’ve discovered so many new bloggers, and I’m loving it!

Summer Diaries is a series I’m doing in my holidays and will chronicle my life over the next two months—what I’ve been reading, what I think about the second wave of the pandemic, and will include with some of my favourite literary analyses.

Today, we’re doing a character case study, and the Never Have I Ever Tag: book edition! Before we start, I would like to do something special for my first-ever milestone so, inspired by Poorwa’s blog I’m going to do a ‘reacting to assumptions’ round.

Summer Diaries is a series I’m doing in my holidays and will chronicle my life over the next two months—what I’ve been reading, what I think about the second wave of the pandemic, and will include with some of my favourite literary quotes!
