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

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

Tolkien Character Book Tag

During quarantine, I resurrected my once-fervent passion for Lord of the Rings. A few months ago, I found this Tolkien-themed tag (created by BookTuber Things Lucy Reads) on Zezee with Books. I was feeling fond and nostalgic (and was procrastinating once again), so I drafted a post. These answers are slightly outdated now but I… Continue reading Tolkien Character Book Tag

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic: COMFORT READS. My comfort reads confirm what I already believe: things ARE as bad as they seem. Strangely, I find these books uplifting. I like knowing I'm not alone. These are my top ten comfort reads. I wouldn't call any of them "lighthearted." (Well...maybe One Last Stop.) Would You Rather?… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

The Zodiac Book Tag

I, a Capricorn, must do every zodiac-themed book tag that exists. I simply must. When I found this tag at The Reading Fairy, I IMMEDIATELY drafted a post. The tag was created by Swift Walker at JustDreamland, whose blog has since been deleted. Aries: A wild and powerful book, compelling from start to finish. Every page… Continue reading The Zodiac Book Tag

Bookish Scenarios Book Tag

I did this tag in 2018. I saw Kristin do it on her blog recently and wanted to see how my answers had changed. Years later, I can't stop talking about The Princess Diaries. You have to get rid of all your books and you can only keep ONE from each of these genres: Contemporary,… Continue reading Bookish Scenarios Book Tag

Animal Crossing Book Tag

I'm experiencing ACNH vicariously through my friends. They tell me all about their favorite villagers and the walrus who lives...in the ocean? I'm not entirely sure about the walrus but I love him. Do I want to buy a Nintendo Switch so I can finally join the fun? KIND OF. Anyway, here's an Animal Crossing-themed… Continue reading Animal Crossing Book Tag

Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2021

I started this new habit of DNFing any book I'm not fully enjoying. Instead of spite-reading a number of one- and two-star books, I DNFed most of them. As such, there were fewer contenders for this year's Least Favorite Books list. I still found some stinkers. These were the worst books I read in 2021.… Continue reading Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2021

November Wrap-up: Turning the corner

Happy December! As always, I'm not quite sure how we got here! Last month was jam-packed with write-ins, family dinners, and karaoke. It was so packed I'm going to start with some life updates. Life Updates I got my first tattoo. Don't worry about it. Originally, my writing group had talked about getting matching tattoos.… Continue reading November Wrap-up: Turning the corner
