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

Here's my current list. The Goldfinch by Donna… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I Would Gift My Nemesis

Dark Academia Reads for Fall

Dark academia was allegedly a big trend on Tumblr during the 2010s. I was too busy having an IRL breakdown to participate, so I'm DOING IT NOW. My general impression of dark academia is "collegiate spaces but make them creepy and possibly full of evil magic." Also, there's dark wood paneling and everyone wears a… Continue reading Dark Academia Reads for Fall

The Crying Book Tag (ORIGINAL)

You might not know this about me, but I cry a lot. I learned in a college class (Psychology 101, perhaps?) that a good cry cleanses your body of toxins. Crying, it turns out, is good for you.
