Prediction Book Tag

Hello! It's time to predict the future! (Don't worry - we're talking about books, not politics.) Meghan @ Meghan's Whimsical Explorations and Reviews tagged me in this. I suspect my predictions won't be correct, but there's nothing to be done for it. RULES: .x. pingback to the creator of the tag, @bookprincessreviews .x. .x. tag the person… Continue reading Prediction Book Tag


The Book Sacrifice Tag

I am here to destroy some books. I turn over and/or cover up books I don't like when I see them displayed in a store; I would have no compunctions about burning one of them. Hit me with the questions. (I found this over at Beth's blog Reading Every Night.)   An Over-Hyped Book Situation: You’re… Continue reading The Book Sacrifice Tag

Has it been almost 2 years since Wonder Woman came out? That's nuts! Cassidy did this tag over on The Little Book Cottage.

LOOK… Continue reading Wonder Woman Book Tag

In honor of the Grishaverse, I'm doing this Bardugo-inspired tag I found at Rattle the Stars.   Kaz Brekker A book you shouldn't judge by its cover… Continue reading The Grishaverse Book Tag


Book Betrayals: A List of Past Hurts, pt. 5

While making my last few lists, I realized I'd had a pretty good life. The bulk of my book betrayals occurred after I turned 18; I couldn't recall any hurtful childhood reads. Then I remembered. There were betrayals, all right. And they started early.   Riding Freedom by Pam Muñoz Ryan I was 6 when the school… Continue reading Book Betrayals: A List of Past Hurts, pt. 5


Book Betrayals: A List of Past Hurts, pt. 2

Read part 1 here. I have yet more literary disappointments to unearth. Thankfully, queer literature has never let me down. HAHAHAHAHA just kidding.   Ash by Malinda Lo I'm using Ash to represent all of Malinda Lo's books. Malinda Lo writes excellent nonfiction; I keep entire anthologies for her essays alone. Her fiction is just so boring. This book appealed… Continue reading Book Betrayals: A List of Past Hurts, pt. 2
