The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Quarantine Edition

I really should clean my apartment. I have been doing some sorting off and on. I cleaned out my closet (could go for a round two) and unhauled quite a few books. Surely there's more to be done. I could probably...I don't know, clean my bathroom or something. Anyway, 'tis the season to redo the… Continue reading The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Quarantine Edition

Revisiting the Night Circus

(Spoilers ahead for The Night Circus) (CW: depression, anxiety, alcohol, suicide) I expected to hate The Starless Sea. I'd been hyped about everything from the cover (bees! keys!) to the plot synopsis (something something pirate ship in a magic sea!) until I realized who wrote it: Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus, my least favorite book… Continue reading Revisiting the Night Circus

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

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

Hello, it's August now and I'm hopped up on jitters. Let's wrap up July, shall we?   Political Updates Portland is on their 65th day of protests.

April Wrap-Up + Extended “Chaotic Good” Rant (I hated it)

Another month of quarantine down! Certain states have decided to reopen! Armed protesters are storming the Michigan capital! I hate it here! Despite all the drama, I was able to read 13 books this month! Hooray! Other than that, there's not much to report. My friend Carrie mailed me some yarn. I cooked portobello mushroom… Continue reading April Wrap-Up + Extended “Chaotic Good” Rant (I hated it)

Too Much Information Book Tag

HELLO. I HAVE BEEN DOWN IN THE DUMPS. This week, I've regained some of my motivation and have resumed cooking, reading, and watching TV (mainly Netflix reality shows and Jessica Jones.) Sleep and inspiration, however, continue to elude me. To take my mind off of things, here I am with a lengthy tag that I found… Continue reading Too Much Information Book Tag

Hello! It's time to predict the future! (Don't worry - we're talking about books, not politics.) Meghan @ Meghan's Whimsical Explorations and Reviews tagged me in this. I suspect my predictions won't be correct, but there's nothing to be done for it.
