Happy Canada Day! I kind of miss the parade, and it’s grey again, but we’ll still make most of the day left. Today I have a somewhat important announcement to make, and I get to share a fun tag! July Update For starters, I’ll be taking a break on the Wednesday posts for this month.… Continue reading July Update + Behind the Blogger Tag
Good afternoon! I can scarcely believe that this time of the month had already rolled around: It’s afternoon tea with SJ! For today, we will be situated in a sun-bathed attic. Everything is constructed of wood, and it’s the kind of warm wood that has patterns in them which resembles a Victorian storybook illustration. There… Continue reading June Afternoon Tea with SJ
Hullo, world! I have waited so long for this day to arrive. *insert dramatic fanfares* It’s my first blogiversary! Admittedly, I had completely forgotten the exact date I started blogging halfway into this year, and someone had a blogiversary which reminded me, “Hey, when was it that I started blogging?” Thankfully, WordPress is better at… Continue reading Happy First Blogiversary!
Hullo, world! It’s another brilliant Wednesday morning. We are finally done with gloomy rainy days and back in sunshine mode here on the west coast.

(Please don’t blame me, it’s all the pandemic that’s been apparently going on.) Today, I wanted to discuss the 7 YA Pet Peeves I have, what’s so… Continue reading 7 YA Pet Peeves
Good afternoon! As you can see, I’ve slightly recovered from my battle with the influenza. (At least well enough to sit up on my bed.) Today, we’ll be doing something a little unconventional. Since I’m still feeling woozy from the past week of high fevers, we’ll be having tea out in the front porch, where… Continue reading May Afternoon Tea with SJ + Bujo!
Hullo, world! As some of you may have noticed, now that I got college application mostly out of the way (will now be working hard to get there), I’ll be posting on Wednesdays as well. *Plays fanfare and shouts huzzah* I’ll be mostly doing book reviews and compiling book lists.

Hullo, world! I’m S. J. (or Sophia, whichever way you like), a bibliomaniac writing life blogger at S. J. Barnard. I stumbled upon this wonderful …4 Bookish Communities that Made Me Smile : A Bibliosmile Guest Post by S. J. Barnard
May has arrived! It’s always exciting to go into a new month, but I especially adore May. (Except, it’s raining today, so it’s not all sunshine…typical of where I live!) The cherry blossom trees are snowing off their flowers, which looks gorgeous. A few things to announce before we start today’s topic: Ash Ronnel at… Continue reading 4 Stages of My Writing Life (and What that Means for You)
