2021 Achillean Books

What an exciting time! Why aren't we celebrating!? Anyway, here are some 2021 achillean book recs. Be Dazzled by Ryan La Sala… Continue reading 2021 Achillean Books

Taylor Swift – 2006 – 2012 (The Red Album)

You know what Taylor Swift deserves? A greatest hits album. I was inspired by the Beatles' two Greatest Hits compilation albums; the Red Album covered 1962-1966 while the Blue album covered 1967-1970. I thought Taylor deserved the same treatment. I also wanted another Swift-related project to work on. This first post covers Taylor's best songs… Continue reading Taylor Swift – 2006 – 2012 (The Red Album)

Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2020

I don't normally do a list of my least favorite books of the year. Everyone on BookTube was doing it, though, and it looked really fun.

Updated List of Comfort Reads

Ever have reading cravings? I have them all the time, especially under duress. Last month, I felt like picking up certain books and holding them to my chest like papery teddy bears (or, in my case, miniature plague doctors.) Some of the books I craved surprised me. They weren't my usual go-tos and most of… Continue reading Updated List of Comfort Reads

Top 5 Tuesday: Couples I Don’t Think Stayed Together

Today's Top 5 Tuesday is JUICY. I LOVE trashing ships. It's one of my favorite pastimes. I hate some very popular ships. I think this is due in large part to: a dearth of inspiring mainstream queer ships lower standards for male love interests I would have given an example of that second one, but… Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Couples I Don’t Think Stayed Together
