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.

Every page… Continue reading The Zodiac Book Tag

Encanto Book Tag

I watched Encanto while housesitting and ended up in a puddle on the floor. This movie is INTENSE. It absolutely deserved the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. If you haven't yet, please watch it. I found this book tag, created by Passport to Eden over on BookTube, on It's Just a Coffee Addicted Bibliophile. The… Continue reading Encanto Book Tag

Animal Crossing Book Tag

I'm experiencing ACNH vicariously through my friends. They tell me all about their favorite villagers and the walrus who lives...in the ocean? I'm not entirely sure about the walrus but I love him.

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

Help, I’m obsessed. I am trying, once again, to whittle down my Currently Reading pile and finish more of the books I own. Neon Gods is making this very difficult.
