April Wrap-Up: Springtime School Daze

May the Fourth be with you! I won't lie: this week has been difficult. For me, things in general have been difficult. I've had a lot of anxiety about school, COVID, future plans, and whatnot.

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.

These were the worst books I read in 2021.… Continue reading Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2021

My friend Shane started watching "Elite" and has been sending me Marco Polo messages about it. This is cause for celebration.

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

I COULD HAVE SWORN I'D ALREADY DONE THIS TAG. APPARENTLY NOT! Emer did this recently and she killed it, as always. I want to rag on books, too.

Anti-Valentines for Literary Figures

Based on some of the content I've posted, you might think I hate Valentine's Day. I don't. I love Valentine's Day. I DON'T love certain literary characters.

The following list contains characters I can never forgive.   (Note: Expect spoilers for every series under the sun...but mostly Harry Potter.)

A Sailor Moon Story

In December 2016, having JUST moved to Seattle, I decided to do all my Christmas shopping at Kinokuniya Book Store. Conveniently located AND full of fun knickknacks? Call me a Christmas GENIUS. In truth, this plan excused endless browsing of items I couldn't afford, such as stuffed sharks, long socks, and English-translated manga. One day,… Continue reading A Sailor Moon Story
