Encanto Book Tag

I watched Encanto while housesitting and ended up in a puddle on the floor. This movie is INTENSE. It absolutely deserved the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. If you haven't yet, please watch it. I found this book tag, created by Passport to Eden over on BookTube, on It's Just a Coffee Addicted Bibliophile. The… Continue reading Encanto Book Tag

I AM NOT HAVING A GOOD TIME. For many of us, Bad Time is kind of the default. For me, on top of the already tense atmosphere, everything that could possibly have gone wrong today did and I am unhappy about it. I left work early and stomped around my neighborhood for an hour.

Different things influenced my year in big ways and I want to sum them up:   I quit my job I finally got out of… Continue reading Lauren’s 2018 Retrospective


Disney Princess Hair Tag

Mandy and Kyera co-created a tag combining two of my favorite things: Disney princess hair and books.

Second-string Fantasy Feminists

I came across a character I'd never heard of the other day that I immediately wanted on my fantasy feminist team. I would've called the post dedicated to her "The 12th (Wo)man: Rounding out the Fantasy Feminist Line-up." Then I discovered a whole host of female characters that I love. My reasons for choosing these… Continue reading Second-string Fantasy Feminists
