February Wrap-Up: Reading is Difficult, Friends

No one stormed the U.S. Capitol last month. Things are looking up! I had a GIANT energy drop during the last two weeks of February and didn't get much done. Then again, I am not defined by my productivity. I don't know. It's been a weird time. February Life Updates I started the editing certification… Continue reading February Wrap-Up: Reading is Difficult, Friends

Ouran Host Club Book Tag

Hello, friends! I started [online] school this week and it's going well so far! The readings are both very boring and really fascinating. My brain is (still) soup, so more book tags!

The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Character Book Tag

I missed the Percy Jackson train. I read maybe half of the first book when it came out and spent years trying to find a DVD copy of the Logan Lerman film adaptation. Other than that, I have no knowledge of the series. BUT WAIT. All of you seem really excited about the new PJO… Continue reading The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Character Book Tag

Lunar Chronicles = Star Wars

Like Star Wars, The Lunar Chronicles utilizes familiar sci-fi archetypes, such as the ace pilot, the plucky heroine, and the damsel in distress. I love both series for exactly this reason. Originally inspired by the now-released The Rise of Skywalker, I tried to figure out which Lunar Chronicles characters matched up with my beloved Star… Continue reading Lunar Chronicles = Star Wars

Festive Christmas Book Tag

It's Advent and Christmas is on the way. Everyone on Theological Twitter is arguing about colors. ('tis the season, I guess.) My church celebrated the Hanging of the Greens.

Never Darken My Doorway Again: Fictional Characters I Cannot Forgive

Certain fictional characters fill me with a powerful rage. These characters are rude to my cinnamon rolls, use offensive terminology, emotionally abuse their loved ones, or just generally get on my nerves. The following list contains characters I can never forgive.   (Note: Expect spoilers for every series under the sun...but mostly Harry Potter.) (CW: discussions… Continue reading Never Darken My Doorway Again: Fictional Characters I Cannot Forgive

Waffles Book Tag

I'm coming around to breakfast food. Did I mention I went to the Waffle Barn in Ashland? Wish I could recommend the Salted Caramel Waffle, but I was tempted by the Chocolate Chip Waffle instead. To make up for missing out on that caramel-y goodness, I'm doing the Waffles Book Tag as seen on Drizzle… Continue reading Waffles Book Tag
