Hello, Love: January Vol.3

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Hello, Love consists of the things I've found in my adventures across the Internet, stored in my pockets, and can't wait to share with you. Consider this a secret archive for the bookish, the dreamers, and the movers and shakers of the world.

1. I love following Humans of New York, and this is one of my favorite posts thus far.

2. Jump in on my Blogoversary Tag and GIVEAWAY! You can win one of two huge boxes of books!

3. Are you an adult who reads YA lit? You saved publishing in 2014.

4. This is what happens when you reply to Tinder guys with Jane Austen quotes.

5. The Wicked Broadway show is coming to the big screen in 2016! Cue fangirl screaming!!

6. Happy New Year you guys! May 2016 be good to you.

7. Read.Sleep.Repeat. came out with another great BEA tip for all you people who are going to be going to BEA this year!!

8. The Perpetual Page-Turner posted her thoughts on the state of the book blogging community. Thoughts?

Stay warm in all this snow and cold weather, friends! Don't forget to hug your roommate or loved-one tell them how awesome you think they are!


  1. OMG thank you for sharing these lovely. I can't believe Wicked is getting a big screen adaption, that's so exciting. I watched it for the first time this year and fell deeply in love with it. Can't wait till 2016! And yay for saving the publishing industry. We're kinda like the superheroes of publishing hehe.

    1. I know right?!?! I loved seeing Wicked on stage, and I just can't believe how great it's going to be on screen!!! I just need more Fiyero and Elphaba in my life!!!

  2. I'm reeeally excited about Wicked being a movie because after I watch it HOPEFULLY I'll feel enthused to try the book again. xD And I love HoNY and all their posts and it's incredible how people give so much of their life story in just a sentence. The photographer is talented in more than just taking good pictures. ;-)

    1. The book is NOTHING like the stage production, which is what the movie will be based on. The stage production is A LOT more kid-friendly and in my opinion, better than the book. For real! I love Humans of New York. I actually bought the book for my sister for Christmas, after flipping through the pages and reading before I gave it to her. ;)

  3. SQUEEE. LOVING the new look, Amanda! :D Absolutely beautiful. I love reading the Humans of New York posts - they're so entertaining. Those buzzfeed tinder posts about replying with quotes from books are always funny to read, too! I haven't had a chance to see Wicked yet, but I think a movie would be fab.

    1. Thanks so much, Ebony!!!!! I'm kinda obsessed with it lately! :) Oh if you ever get a chance to see Wicked on stage, you should do it. It's well worth the cost of a ticket! :)
