The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Quarantine Edition

I really should clean my apartment. I have been doing some sorting off and on. I cleaned out my closet (could go for a round two) and unhauled quite a few books. Surely there's more to be done. I could probably...I don't know, clean my bathroom or something. Anyway, 'tis the season to redo the… Continue reading The Spring Cleaning Book Tag: Quarantine Edition

Revisiting the Night Circus

(Spoilers ahead for The Night Circus) (CW: depression, anxiety, alcohol, suicide) I expected to hate The Starless Sea. I'd been hyped about everything from the cover (bees! keys!) to the plot synopsis (something something pirate ship in a magic sea!) until I realized who wrote it: Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus, my least favorite book… Continue reading Revisiting the Night Circus

2020 Reading Stats + Coup Thoughts: This is not a politics-free zone

We're eleven days into January and I'm just now posting my reading stats. Blame the jerks who tried to take over my country's government last week while the president did nothing. My nerves are shot. In other news, this statement from Andrew Yang sure hasn't aged well! Shut up. Number of Books Read in 2020… Continue reading 2020 Reading Stats + Coup Thoughts: This is not a politics-free zone

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

September Wrap-up: I think I’m cured of brain worms

It's the final day of voting for Fat Bear Week and high time I shared my reading stats for last month. September was decent (better than August, anyway.) I got to see both of my brothers and some other family members. I spent an entire weekend with a pack of dogs and spent a ton… Continue reading September Wrap-up: I think I’m cured of brain worms

June Wrap-up: WHO SIGNED OFF ON THE TEARGAS?

June was...a month. It's normally my favorite month, what with all the Pride celebrations. This month felt different. Washington state is slowly opening back up. Despite an ordinance from Governor Inslee, some citizens refuse to wear masks. Black Lives Matter protests are ongoing around the country. Seattle protestors took over a six-block area on Capitol… Continue reading June Wrap-up: WHO SIGNED OFF ON THE TEARGAS?

May Wrap-Up: Things got worse

I stared at my monitor for a full minute trying to remember what I meant to write. Oh right! It's wrap-up day! May was a pretty regular quarantine month until it all went to shit. Near the end of last month, cops in Minneapolis, MN killed a Black man named George Floyd. Specifically, police officer… Continue reading May Wrap-Up: Things got worse

New Year’s Resolution Book Tag

I don't make New Year's Resolutions very often, but I'll do anything for a tag. The incomparable Zezee @ Zezee with Books did this tag and mentioned wanting to read N. K. Jemisin. I ALSO want to read N. K. Jemisin this year! MIGHT AS WELL DO THE WHOLE TAG. An author you'd like to… Continue reading New Year’s Resolution Book Tag
