A perk of the way I structured my blog is… you can read posts that interest you (as much as I wish you read it all)

Blog updates:

Weekly posts! Sunday @10 am! Amount may vary

Just realized πŸ˜‚ Sunday posts are mostly bookish (+ the life update!) Posts throughout the week mostly pertain to my life!

Beware: Reading blogs will TRY to avoid spoilers but viewing blogs are fair game πŸ˜‚ Since it’s something you can watch… They’re written thinking πŸ€” you’ve seen it! If not the case, be aware of that!

Love ❀️ reading blogs! That explains why I do them so much! πŸ˜‚

I avoid spoilers BUT IF I do, I’m sorry!

No NEW posts but I’ve made 2 new pages from previous posts!

Note/Disclaimer πŸ˜‚

I randomly reach out… If I do and you can’t right now… DO NOT ENGAGE πŸ˜‚

Btw, someone πŸ˜‰ I frequently ask questions to kindly informed me a blog is like a journal πŸ““ Place keep that in mind, I did πŸ˜‚

Remember to check IG for more updates! @listenwithprecious

I tried to really avoid spoilers when posting about books πŸ“– Tried to keep it informative YET non-specific. Hope I succeeded! πŸ™πŸΎ

Disclaimer: Please help πŸ™πŸΎ make this a safe space! ALL content/comments (especially if they differ from yours πŸ€—) We appreciate it! πŸ₯°β€οΈ

Reading ebooks now… πŸ™ŒπŸ½ takes longer… PLEASE πŸ™πŸΎ be patient!

Common typos involving a, s, d, w, m, n. t, r, o… πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ You’ve been warned πŸ˜‚

Note: still finding a grove… Please give me a couple months to do so πŸ™πŸΎ
