Midnights Book Tag

It's here. Taylor Swift's Midnights is finally here. And people have already created book tags in its honor. Three hours after the album's release, Taylor dropped a 3 AM edition with MORE SONGS. THIS HAS BEEN THE MOST INTENSE TAYLOR RELEASE OF MY LIFE THUS FAR. I'm doing both the Midnights Book Tag (Pt 1.)… Continue reading Midnights Book Tag

The End of the Year Book Tag

It’s the end of the year! I guess! I feel like every year for the last while has been “a weird year.” This one, though, was definitely weird. For one, I’m at a new job that doesn’t make me want to die. I’ve read fewer books so far this year compared to last year. Erotica… Continue reading The End of the Year Book Tag

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.

August Wrap-Up: THINGS HAVE CHANGED

I'm tired. It's been a lot of change in a short amount of time. Oh, AND I got my Piranesi… Continue reading August Wrap-Up: THINGS HAVE CHANGED

Cataloguing the Thoughts Swimming in My Soup Brain

I haven't been able to focus on reading in two weeks. A recent bout of chronic stress has turned my brain to pink and gray soup. In that soup swim several hyperfixations that are keeping me going. Here are a few of them. Hades Hades is fantastic and everyone in it is hot. I'm not… Continue reading Cataloguing the Thoughts Swimming in My Soup Brain

Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

After a busy couple of weeks, I finished one of the books on my Dessertathon TBR! One down, six to go! For the Sugar prompt (feel-good book), I reread Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop for the umpteenth time. I love this book so much. Casey McQuiston's prose always gets me. I love the historical tidbits… Continue reading Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

March Wrap-Up: Back to School

Hello! I just got back from another month of house sitting! I listened to a lot of audiobooks, cooked some nice meals, ordered a bunch of cookies, and watched every single episode of American Nailed It. It was a good time. I also started my practicum course and learned more about developmental editing. Friends. It… Continue reading March Wrap-Up: Back to School
