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

Not Enough Time TBR Book Tag

I packed several dozen books for housesitting. Guess how many of them I read? I had such ambitions! Zezee did this TBR-themed book tag on her blog and I guess I feel like shaming myself. At the very least, because I drafted this post so long ago, I've since read some of these books! Huzzah!… Continue reading Not Enough Time TBR Book Tag

Fandom Book Tag

This book tag has 15 prompts and I need a distraction. From what? School, mostly. Do I spend more time complaining about school than I spend doing homework? Yes. I'm going to reveal whether I was part of the fandoms named in this tag. I currently belong to the Our Flag Means Death fandom and… Continue reading Fandom Book Tag

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books Too Good to Review Properly

I have a notoriously difficult time reviewing books. Today's Top Ten Tuesday asks me to list books that are SO good, they leave me speechless. Here are some books that I really enjoyed and also can't review. When I try to write about them, I blubber incoherently about my feelings. Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books Too Good to Review Properly

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

Red (Taylor’s Version) Book Tag

YOU KNEW IT WAS COMING. I'm so glad someone on BookTube made this tag in honor of A FANTASTIC album. I have listened to "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" numerous times. I'm not okay. Anyway, book tag. State of Grace - best opening book in a series Toss-up between Daughter of Smoke and Bone… Continue reading Red (Taylor’s Version) Book Tag

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I Would Gift My Nemesis

Today's Top Ten Tuesday was a freebie. This is what I came up with. While I have no reason to gift books to my real-life nemesis (looking at you, Derek*), I still entertain passive-aggressive fantasies about giving them books that would cause them undue amounts of pain. Here's my current list. The Goldfinch by Donna… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I Would Gift My Nemesis

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.
