The Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

I simply must do as many Midnights-themed book tags as I can find. Those are the rules. I found this tag at Amani's Reviews. I listened to the album while answering the prompts because obviously. LAVENDER HAZE Prompt: “Meet me at midnight!” – Lavender Haze. Find a book where there’s a secret or forbidden romance… Continue reading The Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

October Wrap-Up: Starring Seasonal Depression

I have been doing my best not to think about climate change. Then we got 80-degree weather for almost a week in the middle of October. I would not like to be confronted with this reality, thank you. Autumn's a really hard season for me. On the one hand, I love the colder weather and… Continue reading October Wrap-Up: Starring Seasonal Depression

September Wrap-Up: A change of pace

I posted my August wrap-up two weeks ago. Surprise! While I was still reeling, the month ended! The rest of September was taken up with rereads, some health stuff, and decisions about the future. As requested [by Meghan], here is a picture my completely healed Piranesi tattoo. Do I have another tattoo planned? Not officially,… Continue reading September Wrap-Up: A change of pace

July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Well. It's been a couple of weeks, that's for sure. I have been trying to ward off full-on panic for about a month with mixed success. As I mentioned in my last post, my brain is soup. One good thing happened last month: my niece Josie was born. She and my sister-in-law are doing great… Continue reading July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

June Wrap-Up: I hate it here

I could start things off on a positive note, I suppose: I finished school. I now have a Certificate in Editing from the University of Washington. After a year and a half of cramming assignments after work, I am finally free. Now for the rest of the month: NOT GREAT. The previous month's news became… Continue reading June Wrap-Up: I hate it here

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
