Top 5 Tuesday: Couples I Don’t Think Stayed Together

Today's Top 5 Tuesday is JUICY. I LOVE trashing ships. It's one of my favorite pastimes. I hate some very popular ships. I think this is due in large part to: a dearth of inspiring mainstream queer ships lower standards for male love interests I would have given an example of that second one, but… Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Couples I Don’t Think Stayed Together

Mala Santa Book Tag

Before this tag, I had never heard of Becky G. According to my research, she's a 22-year-old Latin singer/songwriter who started out doing covers on YouTube. Leelynn created this original tag + graphics using Becky G's brand-new LP. (She is the true Queen of Tags.) Music, graphics, and books? What a find! Now let me… Continue reading Mala Santa Book Tag

Lil Peep Book Tag

Would you believe I thought this tag referred to the nursery rhyme? Oh...no one's surprised. That's fair. Lil Peep was a rapper who died in 2017. This tag uses his songs as prompts. That's all I really know. Halei did this tag on her great blog Degenerate Reads with the intent of spread it around… Continue reading Lil Peep Book Tag

Universal Monsters Book Tag

My friend Shane once described the Universal Movie Monsters canon in its entirety while we waited for a bus. I understood this much: Universal Studios keeps resurrecting popular, public domain creatures that live in a shared film universe...or something. They tried remaking The Mummy to jumpstart the franchise once again...and they FAILED. We see the Universal Movie… Continue reading Universal Monsters Book Tag

Everyone, do the tag! Come on, do it! It feels really nice! I will try to avoid spoilers. I'll try VERY hard. Oh, I… Continue reading Midsommar Book Tag [ORIGINAL]

The best solution in a time of crisis is a personality quiz. This tag, pulled from the blog Fiction No Chaser, involves quizzes. Jess was nice enough to include rules and I loved her answers, so here we are. THE RULES Take all the quizzes down below and record your answers somehow.

How to Make a Lauren: A Personality Recipe

A couple days ago, I chose protagonist Emi to represent my entire personality. I'd identified closely with Harry Potter in the past, but those days were over... ...right? Then I thought of ANOTHER perfect character. And another. And another. I am a complex cocktail of neuroses and traits. One character is simply not enough. If… Continue reading How to Make a Lauren: A Personality Recipe

The Ultimate Harry Potter Book Tag

Ultimate? Harry Potter? My recent complaints have made me nostalgic for the series. I guess WRITING AN ENTIRE SCREENPLAY ABOUT REMUS LUPIN WILL DO THAT TO YOU. And this tag (created by Isabeau's Literary Musings, discovered at Under the Book Cover) had rapid-fire questions that are easy to answer. Let's go!   ROUND ONE: OPINIONS… Continue reading The Ultimate Harry Potter Book Tag

Harry Potter Honouring the Dead Book Tag

No one tagged me, but here I am. Harry Potter and death are two of my favorite things. I had to be here. There are many, many spoilers ahead. I will try to mark them beforehand, but not promises. Before we start, I have to show some house pride: Ravenclaw Surprised? So am I! On… Continue reading Harry Potter Honouring the Dead Book Tag

#NotAll Book Tag

Can't stop, won't stop. I'm not cool enough to use sassy hashtags on Twitter. I will GLADLY use them for books, though. Shout-outs to creator The Orangutan Librarian and to Book Hooked Nook for inspiration.   #NOTALL COVER CHANGES A COVER CHANGE YOU LIKED The original cover for this classic is one of the worst… Continue reading #NotAll Book Tag
