The Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

I simply must do as many Midnights-themed book tags as I can find. Those are the rules. I found this tag at Amani's Reviews. I listened to the album while answering the prompts because obviously. LAVENDER HAZE Prompt: “Meet me at midnight!” – Lavender Haze. Find a book where there’s a secret or forbidden romance… Continue reading The Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

October Wrap-Up: Starring Seasonal Depression

I have been doing my best not to think about climate change. Then we got 80-degree weather for almost a week in the middle of October. I would not like to be confronted with this reality, thank you. Autumn's a really hard season for me. On the one hand, I love the colder weather and… Continue reading October Wrap-Up: Starring Seasonal Depression

The End of the Year Book Tag

It’s the end of the year! I guess! I feel like every year for the last while has been “a weird year.” This one, though, was definitely weird. For one, I’m at a new job that doesn’t make me want to die. I’ve read fewer books so far this year compared to last year. Erotica… Continue reading The End of the Year Book Tag

September Wrap-Up: A change of pace

I posted my August wrap-up two weeks ago. Surprise! While I was still reeling, the month ended! The rest of September was taken up with rereads, some health stuff, and decisions about the future. As requested [by Meghan], here is a picture my completely healed Piranesi tattoo. Do I have another tattoo planned? Not officially,… Continue reading September Wrap-Up: A change of pace

August Wrap-Up: THINGS HAVE CHANGED

Well. I changed jobs. The reason that this wrap-up is 3 weeks late is because I have recently changed my entire routine, learned a ton of new skills, and skipped town for a house-sitting gig. I'm tired. It's been a lot of change in a short amount of time. Oh, AND I got my Piranesi… Continue reading August Wrap-Up: THINGS HAVE CHANGED

The Ice Lolly Book Tag

I survived a two-week heat wave. I'm now ready for fall. I found the Ice Lolly Book Tag (created by Louise @ Book Murmuration) over at AceReader. I had to google each of the sweets mentioned but they look and sound delicious. King cones with the chocolate bit at the end are still my favorite.… Continue reading The Ice Lolly Book Tag

July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Well. It's been a couple of weeks, that's for sure. I have been trying to ward off full-on panic for about a month with mixed success. As I mentioned in my last post, my brain is soup. One good thing happened last month: my niece Josie was born. She and my sister-in-law are doing great… Continue reading July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Cataloguing the Thoughts Swimming in My Soup Brain

I haven't been able to focus on reading in two weeks. A recent bout of chronic stress has turned my brain to pink and gray soup. In that soup swim several hyperfixations that are keeping me going. Here are a few of them. Hades Hades is fantastic and everyone in it is hot. I'm not… Continue reading Cataloguing the Thoughts Swimming in My Soup Brain

Life’s a Beach Book Tag

Seattle's in the middle of a heat wave and I'm not happy about it. The weather has been creeping past Pacific Northwest Hot into Actually Hot. At least it feels like summer, so here's a summery book tag from Lefty at The Left-Handed Book Lover. The Sand A book that stuck with you long after… Continue reading Life’s a Beach Book Tag
