Anyway, as all of you who have been following my blog for quite some time have probably realized, I've been having a hard time hanging onto the blog. I started this blog a couple summers ago when I had just moved to a new town and didn't have a lot of friends. When the school year started, it wasn't bad. I mean, it was sophomore year. Easy. I moved in the middle of sophomore year. Then came things like exams and projects and that was just the beginning. Come summer, I got a job and took trips. That was when blogging pretty much slipped from my life. As did reading. I started working over 40 hours a week on top of AP classes and Chamber Singers, which is the advanced choir at my school and we do a lot of things. Basically, I was gone from 6:45 AM until 10:00 PM every day.
My point is that I got busy.
I pretty much felt like this at all hours of the day:
Blogging dropped low on my priorities list.
Then, I quit my job and all of a sudden I have nothing but time.
But let me say, blogging still isn't easy. Turns out I surrendered more of my life than I had realized. Like church, like friends, like naps. OH HOW I LOVE NAPS!
School is harder now, and I need to be more serious about it.
I recently started up blogging again because it is something I can't just let go of. But like I said--not easy. So I enlisted some help. I put out a call for a blogging partner a few weeks back, but I was merely considering it. To be honest, I don't know that I had any intentions of actually getting a partner. However, I took a minute to evaluate myself and my blog and realized I NEED a partner.
So, I GOT TWO.
That's what this post is actually about, people. It is to welcome my two new blogging partners, Nova and Charlotte!

Guys, I am so excited to have these girls on board with me! I hope you, my lovely readers, are too. It just means more awesome content for your viewing pleasure. And since I won't be expelling all my energy into all the posts for the week, I can focus more cleverness and charm into each of my posts.
It's going to be a strange transition, I know this. Technically speaking, this blog is something I've done all on my own. Of course I never would have made it without the unwavering kindness, generosity, and support from my fellow bookish people. But technically speaking, I brought BookBreather into the world, I shaped it to the type of blog I wanted it to be, I dressed it, I fed it, I dedicated my time in energy to it. It has always been MINE.
But now it is OURS.
And it will be great. This is definitely for the better. Lots of great things will be coming your way, reader. I promise. But in the mean time, give my new partners a warm welcome :D
It's NOVA!!!!! (No seriously, Nova is now writing. Say a little au revoir to Gabbi... she's letting me do a little self intro. YOU ROCK!!!)
So, from the cool intro above, I'm Nova! I'm so excited to be posting on here to spread my love of books, starbucks and cat gifs.
I could tell you a million and one facts about me, but that would be so boring. Anyway, I'm 1 of the 3(!) bloggers at Book Breather(maybe it should be Book Breathers) But I'm a 13 year old girl who is completely Canadian, EH?
Actually it's just the Newfoundlanders who use EH. they've got a COMPLETELY different agenda from the rest of us. I'm actually from a place called Mississauga, in Ontario... Toronto if you will.
My reviews are honest (duh?) and funny... at least in my head. I try to make things different and on my own blog, I design my own little labels from scratch (with the help of photoshop).
I don't consider myself serious in the least but I think that I can be. You should see the kinds of emails I write to authors, asking for an ARC. It's like:
"salutations (author's name). I'm a blogger and I would formally like to request a copy of (book in question). These are my blog stats and these are ways to contact me. If you would like to accept my review offer, kindly reply and I will surely send you the address in which to send it to".
GEEZUS! Someone say GRANDMA!!!
No, I did not mean a motorcycling Grandma... But that would be so cool!!!
OOHHH!!! And I'm a music freak. I forgot to mention that. I am obsessed with bands. Paramore, Jimmy Eat World, Panic! At the Disco, Marianas Trench, Evanescence, Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Hedley, Florence + the Machine, you name it! I love books with strong elements of music and sexy guitarists. Gosh, I'm only 13, but a girl can dream :')
I don't know what I'm supposed to write or the fact that the definition of "short intro" is supposed to be short. Anyway, catch me on my blog and I'll be sure to answer to anything you may throw at me. Or you could shoot me an email:
Kay, real email? firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you want to send me a bomb/grenade, here's my address.

And my name is P. Nemo Sherman. Happy hunting!
