Welcome! You made it!
I started this blog as a “portfolio” for “serious writing” (per some professional advice that would have better suited someone else.)
Over the years, Narrative Paradise morphed into a book blog…of sorts.
I don’t write book reviews (very often) or participate in reading challenges.
I DO post book tags and gush about my favorite series.
I occasionally publish posts about faith, politics, and/or mental health.
Oh, and I MAY have turned this site into an unofficial Maggie Stiefvater fan blog.
More accurately, Narrative Paradise operates as an unofficial Ronan Lynch blog.
I’m not kidding.
Read. Comment. Explore.
Before this tag, I had never heard of Becky G.
According to my research, she’s a 22-year-old Latin singer/songwriter who started out doing covers on YouTube.
Leelynn created this original tag + graphics using Becky G’s brand-new LP. (She is the true Queen of Tags.)
Music, graphics, and books?
What a find!
Now let me see how many times I can mention The Raven Cycle in this post! Continue reading “Mala Santa Book Tag”

I haven’t gotten up before 5:00 AM since I worked opening shift at a cafe.
Today, I urged my aging body out of bed at 4:30 AM to board a train full of strangers.
We commiserated over coffee, talked about books, got really deep into pagan mysticism, and wrote a ton of words.
It was my first ever Great Train Write-in and I had a blast. Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2019: The Great Train Write-in and Powell’s Book Haul”
Would you believe I thought this tag referred to the nursery rhyme?
Oh…no one’s surprised.

THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ARE UP DOWNTOWN.

In my Perfect Romance Novel post, I mentioned that I love bisexual bois but rarely see them in fiction.
I’d completely forgotten about The Raven Cycle‘s Adam Parrish.
(Turn back now if you don’t want to be spoiled.)

Did I say you wouldn’t see much from me this month?
I LIED. Continue reading “We Set the Dark on Fire Book Tag”
