sixteen & alive


*dusts off the cobwebs* HELLO BOOKAHOLICS! Remember me?! Good old Anna who loved YA books and wouldn't shut up about them? Yeah, I'm back. 😘 My December hiatus went on much longer than I expected it to, but don't worry, I'm back for good.


I was supposed to be back blogging in January. Yeah... I kinda died?? I had just finished my two semesters in hell public school and I was free as a bird. It was winter break and, for the new year, I wanted a fresh look for annaish. New pictures! New blog design! New year, new me am I right? I really wanted the absolute best for annaish. I was sick of writing TTT posts, dumb updates, and my own boring writing style. I was losing my unique touch and that. was. scary. So your girl created this masterplan. On January 1st, I was going to arrive with a new blog design, fresh content, and brand new photos (ones that i actually liked!!). But that never happened because my winter break was terrible. 


My winter break was filled to the rim with intrusive thoughts and insomnia. I was constantly tired and just sad man. I didn't have the strength to sit down and work on my beautiful blog. Time passed and I was so mad at myself. "What happened? I'm done with public school... I can actually do the things that I love?" It took me awhile to understand (because I'm an idiot) but I raise the bar way too high for myself. Creating πŸ‘ that πŸ‘ deadline πŸ‘ really πŸ‘ hurt πŸ‘ myself. So I took a step back. I didn't touch my blog until I was mentally ready. In the meantime, I started reading, drawing, and took an English course. It was really hard to leave annaish sitting in the dust but it was for the best.


SO YEAH. I ran into some personal issues but I'm so happy to be back I missed blogging and y'all so much and oh my god I'm going to cry. 🀧 As you can see, I do have a new blog design! I'm still working on some new photos (the weather SUCKS here okay) but I have new, exciting blog posts coming. Here's what you can expect from annaish now:

• Me using emojis in a sorta sarcastic manner

• More discussions!!!!!! Ranging from "what's the deal with problematic books?" to "fantasy vs contemporary books"

• Hand drawn headers featuring me and books 

• Better user accessibility for my disabled friends

• More reviews (w/ trigger warnings) and photos

• Posts specifically about LGBTQ+, #BlackLivesMatter, #NeverAgain, Women rights - STUFF I BELIEVE IN AND SUPPORT. 


My god, I almost forgot about my birthday. I recently turned 16 (AHHHHHHH) on March 7th and it was a pretty good day! My family and I went out for lunch and traveled to an art museum. Sorta had an existential crisis for a little bit because I'm actually 16 wthhhh bUT IT'S ALL GOOD. Shoutout to my friends for the birthday wishes y'all so sweet!!!!! πŸ’“πŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’˜πŸ’žπŸ’

I plan on updating my social medias very soon, but my main focus right now is annaish. I encourage you all to explore the new annaish! I have new (updated) pages and, of course, the new design (plus a new domain!!). From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for reading this. I remember being really discouraged at my stats and low follow count for while but you know what? I'm finally happy with my blog again and I can't wait to share posts that actually mean something to me. Love y'all!!
