Behind the Books: May ’17

¬†Can you even believe it’s May and this is only my first Behind the Books in 2017?! It’s crazy! Outrageous! *hides in corner* I have so much to tell you guys! I had planned for this to go up a few days earlier, but unfortunately my health wouldn’t allow it. Since it’s been so long since I done a Behind the Books post, I’m only going to take about the past few weeks or so, what happened before that isn’t really important. Anyway, get nice and comfy with a nice big cup of tea (coffee’s fine too!) and enjoy!

Behind the Books: December ’16

This is my very last Behind the Books post for 2016! How crazy is that? In December's BtB, I talk about the blog, my life and my current reads!Whew, how is it December already?! January feels like only yesterday… Anyway, I am so sorry I didn’t do a Behind the Books posts for November! I wasn’t really blogging at all and decided to focus on planning and preparations instead of rushing to get things published. There are so many fun things coming up! I really needed this kind of break to think about things. But enough for now, here’s what I’ve been up to the past month or so!

If you’ve been following my blog, you know it’s quite dead-ish lately. Even my Twitter is dead! I’ll explain everything in this post!

Behind the Books: September

Behind the Books SeptemberBefore I continue with my monthly personal update, I have some important-ish news to tell you guys! I’m taking a little break. You might have noticed how there was no Top Ten Tuesday post yesterday, and how my posts don’t show up on social media anymore. I explain it all in this post, but I felt like I needed to get this out of the way first. Now let’s move on to more fun stuff, like all the great stuff that has happened to me over the past month. Read all about it in my new Behind the Books post!

But, before I go back to internship and college, I had the past full month off and I spend my time¬†working on the blog! Read more

Behind the Books: An Introduction

Hi! I'm Ayla, creator of Books & Babbles. I write abut books and review Young Adult literature!

Since Books & Babbles is still new, you probably don’t know anything about me. And that should really change! I want my blog to be more than just books and book babble, but personal as well. No, I’m not going to tell you my deepest, darkest secrets (sorry!) But I want to show more of myself than just the books I read. Behind the Books will be a monthly thing, but I want to start with an introduction of myself. Read more
