In this spotlight post, I’m going to write about a thoughtful, kind, and talented person. I have always admired Sarah’s woodmarks every time she posted photos of them on her bookstagram, so it is definitely an honor to rep for her shop, Flagship Studios.

All right, I confess. What I thought would never happen finally happened to me this year.
I got stuck in a reading slump.
This nerdy sickness was like a sneaky thief. It started with me taking much longer than usual to finish reading a single book because I got easily distracted by other things. And then before I knew it, I just didn’t feel like picking up anything from my TBR pile. Gawd, imagine the horror!
For me, a reading slump is definitely an EMERGENCY. I don’t mind reading slowly for a change. What alarmed me was that the thought of reading any new book did not excite me – not like the way it used to. In this situation, I was a damsel in distress. How could I bring back the passion and excitement for reading? (Pardon the theatrics. I can be such a drama queen. Haha.)
Here’s the funny thing: When I needed saving from books, I was actually rescued…by other books.
After my first movie adaptation review, here’s another first. Beginning this year, I’ll start posting bookish merch recommendations, because there are sellers that deserve the love and adoration. It’s also a plus that I’ll have documentation of my favorite shops for future reference.
First up, we have Ink & Wonder.
I know that so many of you in the bookish community have already posted glowing reviews of Ink & Wonder’s products. I discovered their gorgeous woodmarks because of the bookstagram community and I’m so grateful that I did. After buying my first set of woodmarks from them, I can honestly say that they are worth the hype.
