TOP TEN TUESDAY: Bookish Pet Peeves

Looove doing last minute Top Ten Tuesday posts. (No, honestly, I love doing this.) (Can you tell I'm a pantser?) Today's topic is bookish pet peeves! I thought I wouldn't have much to say today. I WAS WRONG. Price stickers on books Price stickers infuriate me. When my friends lend me books, I have to… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Bookish Pet Peeves

August Wrap-Up: Cooler weather at last!

Dare I say I had a good August? It started raining toward the end of the month. I'm wearing sweats and long sleeves again. I might even break out the beanies. I got to be really social last month: a friend I hadn't seen in a while threw a pool party, my writing buddies and… Continue reading August Wrap-Up: Cooler weather at last!

March Wrap-Up: A Tiny Energy Boost

Another big energy drop this month! I started feeling really down around Daylight Savings Time. Talking to friends and family helped and I was able to finish a decent number of books. I also went TikTok viral accidentally, so uh...that happened. School is going well. Not too many updates aside from that. Let's do some… Continue reading March Wrap-Up: A Tiny Energy Boost

2020 Reading Stats + Coup Thoughts: This is not a politics-free zone

We're eleven days into January and I'm just now posting my reading stats. Blame the jerks who tried to take over my country's government last week while the president did nothing. My nerves are shot. In other news, this statement from Andrew Yang sure hasn't aged well! Shut up. Number of Books Read in 2020… Continue reading 2020 Reading Stats + Coup Thoughts: This is not a politics-free zone

November Wrap-Up: I initially wrote “September,” so that’s where I am emotionally

I would really like for this year to end already. It took me three days to realize the month had changed. November was pretty quiet. I researched autism this month and ended up self-diagnosing. Autism explains most, if not all, of my childhood and adolescence. I also learned to love romance again, but that's a… Continue reading November Wrap-Up: I initially wrote “September,” so that’s where I am emotionally

Halloween Movie Book Tag: Scream Inside Your Heart because Halloween is Over edition

October went by so fast. Here we are, almost three weeks into November, and I still miss all the black cats and evil pumpkins. Here is a Halloween movie tag in honor of the horror movies clogging up my Netflix queue. I pulled this tag from its creator Robin @ Paperbacks and Planners. Let's see… Continue reading Halloween Movie Book Tag: Scream Inside Your Heart because Halloween is Over edition

Book Recs Based on My Favorite Musicals

I've been listening to musicals recently to help me cope with a sudden onslaught of work. I revisited some old favorites as well as a few that I once hated. Because I worked so much last week (and thus spent at least 50 hours listening to musicals), I decided to do book recommendations based on… Continue reading Book Recs Based on My Favorite Musicals

September Wrap-up: I think I’m cured of brain worms

It's the final day of voting for Fat Bear Week and high time I shared my reading stats for last month. September was decent (better than August, anyway.) I got to see both of my brothers and some other family members. I spent an entire weekend with a pack of dogs and spent a ton… Continue reading September Wrap-up: I think I’m cured of brain worms

August Wrap-Up: The dog days are NOT over

WHY HELLO. DID ANYONE ELSE HAVE AN INCREDIBLY BAD TIME DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST? I think, in truth, August was probably a "normal" quarantine month. "Normal" during a global pandemic, though, is still PRETTY BAD. In August, I was rejected for my dream internship and hit a wall after two months on OkCupid. MY… Continue reading August Wrap-Up: The dog days are NOT over
