My Book Collection 2016

Hey look! My desk where I do all my creating!

Yay for filler posts! I have been in such a reading slump, I still haven’t finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Isn’t that terrible?! I swear that I’m that reader who either reads a book in four hours, or doesn’t read for four months. It’s so bad.

So I am giving myself some extra time by writing this post. I’ve done a lot of moving in the past year and a half. I moved to New York City for a year, then to my mom’s house, and as of this past Sunday, I am now living at my dad’s house.Phew! It’s been crazy. I have had to pack and ship boxes three times. THREE TIMES. By the second time you pack everything up you start wondering if your stuff is really worth it, just imagine the third time.

I got rid of/donated a lot of books during the different moving sessions, and these are the books that have made it to their (for now) final destination. These lucky ducks.

Let’s start with the left side of my computer:

  • Nimona by Noella Stevenson
  • Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womenhood by Piper & Grudem
  • Uprooting Anger by Robert D. Jones
  • It’s Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke
  • Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot
  • Living The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney
  • When People Are Big and God is Small by Edward T. Welch
  • If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  • The Carousel Painter by Judith Miller
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
  • Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot
  • Desiring God by John Piper
  • Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
  • Romeo And/Or Juliet by Ryan North

Woah, that was more than I thought lol. Pardon me for not linking the titles to Amazon. Not for the right side!


This side is tiny haha.

  • On Our Knees by Susan J. Heck
  • The Swiss Family Robinson by John Wyss
  • Let Me Be A Woman by Elisabeth Elliot
  • The Giver by Lois Lowery

Something else I just realized? Only 9/19 are fiction lol even though I am more of a fiction girl than non-fiction.

So for one reason or another, these are books that are special enough to me to keep through multiple states.

What are some books that go wherever you go?

Until Next Time


Jumping Back Into Reading


This summer has forced me to put my life in to a different perspective and actually prioritize my life. Well, I’m still working on the prioritize part. But as we are entering October I have fallen back in love with the idea of reading all day, of bringing a book wherever I go and not being able to get enough of the written word. And transforming back into my book nerd form I have a deeper to desire to have a place to write about all of the books I am reading, to have a place to collect all of my thoughts and since my bookshelf is already consumed with half-filled notebooks, a blog is going to have to do.

Bookish Tea Dribbles is no longer here to make me famous in the book-nerd community, but to catalogue my thoughts, opinions, and feelings of the many lives I am about to live.

So here we go.

To jump in, I am going to start by reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. Everybody who breathes know about the Harry Potter series, and yet I have never read them. Shame on me. But my eldest sister finally took it upon herself and hosted a Harry Potter movie-marathon with me back in June 2015 and I didn’t read the first book until November 2015.

Here we are, almost a year later and still no progress. Those movies impress on me the feelings of a blanket around my shoulder and Christmas dinner. As we are diving in to Fall season ( hallelujah!) I thought I should finally start… again.

Right now I am in North Carolina helping said sister and her family pack and move up to Rhode Island, I need a book.
