Outed by my book-buying habits

If it wasn't made clear in past posts, I'm bisexual. I wasn't privy to/able to process this piece of information until my mid-twenties. So it goes. It took me until NOW to realize that many of the SFF YA novels I've purchased over the years have similar cover art. You'll see what I mean in… Continue reading Outed by my book-buying habits

Stardew Valley Vibe Check: Judging the romance options

Thanks to some very convincing friends, I am currently obsessed with Stardew Valley. Stardew Valley is an American farming simulator influenced heavily by Harvest Moon, a popular Japanese farming sim that I grew up playing. Players can grow crops, raise animals, explore caves, make friends, and - most importantly - romance one of twelve marriage… Continue reading Stardew Valley Vibe Check: Judging the romance options

I joked about doing a Lana Del Rey recommendations tag. Insteaaaaad... ...I FOUND A HALSEY BOOK TAG! I've had a crush on Halsey since she dropped Badlands in 2015.

Top 5 Nostalgic Ships

Today's Top 5 Wednesday theme is Nostalgic Ships! I am ALL OVER THAT. I used to ship these couples hard. Like...HARD.

I… Continue reading Top 5 Nostalgic Ships

The “How I Choose my Books” Tag

In a word: cover. Although, upon further examination, that's not always true. A book has to have an interesting cover (and title) for me to pick it up, but neither of those things guarantees that I'll read it. This tag lets me explain what draws me to certain books.   Find a book on your… Continue reading The “How I Choose my Books” Tag

The Cliché Book Tag

Today's featured image was taken at my college honors convocation. My professor (that's him on the far left) nominated me to be the honors speaker. Neither of us ever heard back. When we heard the chosen speaker's prepared speech, we both lost our minds. Of all the advice given by my nemesis, his tired, "Shoot… Continue reading The Cliché Book Tag
