Monster Prom: My Favorite Monstrous Dates

I have a new habit: instead of doing homework, I play Monster Prom for hours on Steam. My grades are suffering for it, but I'm having a great time! Monster Prom is a crowdfunded PC game where you, a student at Spooky High, have to ask one of six (eight with the DLC) monsters to… Continue reading Monster Prom: My Favorite Monstrous Dates

The End of the Year Book Tag 2020

I did this tag last year and liked that it held me [relatively] accountable. (I also didn't accomplish any of the things I promised to in that post, but you know what? Intentions are half the battle.) I also copied this tag from Elli @ AceReader last year and I'm DOING IT AGAIN. It's tradition… Continue reading The End of the Year Book Tag 2020

She-Ra: Princesses of Power Book Tag

Today in gay news: the Supreme Court ruled in favor of employment protections for queer and trans individuals. WE'RE A PROTECTED CLASS NOW, BAYBEE. In less-historic news: I just finished She-Ra and the Princesses of Power on Netflix. The show is amazing and queer as hell and makes me feel WAY too many things. To celebrate… Continue reading She-Ra: Princesses of Power Book Tag

Women’s History Book Tag

HAPPY MARCH! The VERY amazing Margaret @ Weird Zeal created this excellent original tag for Women's History Month (which is THIS MONTH! RIGHT NOW!) Margaret has "a lot of feelings" (same) and writes lovely, passionate reviews. She recently shared about her editing process, inspiring me to print out my own NaNo novel and give editing… Continue reading Women’s History Book Tag

Frozen Book Tag

Are we allowed to talk about Frozen again? I haven't watched it since the negative discourse erupted in 2013. I hear it's still selling a ton of merchandise. Good for Disney, I suppose. Anyway, this is a Frozen-inspired book tag ripped from Never Not Reading.   Let It Go A book you wouldn't mind parting with I read Part of… Continue reading Frozen Book Tag

Disney Princess Hair Tag

Mandy and Kyera co-created a tag combining two of my favorite things: Disney princess hair and books. Then Jenna wrote a delightful, gif-laden post with this tag that inspired me to follow her example. Hats off, all, to your creativity. My answers may not line up exactly with official Disney Princess canon, but who CARES.… Continue reading Disney Princess Hair Tag

Book Betrayals: A List of Past Hurts, pt. 5

While making my last few lists, I realized I'd had a pretty good life. The bulk of my book betrayals occurred after I turned 18; I couldn't recall any hurtful childhood reads. Then I remembered. There were betrayals, all right. And they started early.   Riding Freedom by Pam Muñoz Ryan I was 6 when the school… Continue reading Book Betrayals: A List of Past Hurts, pt. 5

R.I.P. It or Ship It: Round 12

For round 12, I picked Mia Thermopolis from The Princess Diaries and Princess Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender Background Mia started as an awkward nobody with bad hair until her father revealed their royal lineage. Now she's an awkward somebody with slightly better hair and control over a small European principality. Azula, the Fire Lord's… Continue reading R.I.P. It or Ship It: Round 12

The Women of Lunar Chronicles

I bought Cinder in 2011 when I ran out of books my freshman year of college. I no longer have my original copy due to my annoyance when what I thought was a standalone ended on a cliffhanger. It took a good friend of mine to convince me to give the series another chance. Looking back, I don't know… Continue reading The Women of Lunar Chronicles
