January Wrap-Up: WHO EVEN CARES

WOW, I THOUGHT DECEMBER WAS BAD. PRESIDENT-SANCTIONED INSURRECTION? MUTATED STRAINS OF COVID-19? A SECOND IMPEACHMENT? CAN WE PLEASE CATCH A BREAK? PLEASE? Last month, I worked even more mandatory overtime. Oh, and I turned 28 during quarantine. This is not exactly the fresh start I'd hoped for. I'm trying to stay optimistic. "Trying," of course,… Continue reading January Wrap-Up: WHO EVEN CARES

November Wrap-Up: I initially wrote “September,” so that’s where I am emotionally

I would really like for this year to end already. It took me three days to realize the month had changed. November was pretty quiet. I researched autism this month and ended up self-diagnosing. Autism explains most, if not all, of my childhood and adolescence. I also learned to love romance again, but that's a… Continue reading November Wrap-Up: I initially wrote “September,” so that’s where I am emotionally

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

Book Recs Based on My Favorite Musicals

I've been listening to musicals recently to help me cope with a sudden onslaught of work. I revisited some old favorites as well as a few that I once hated. Because I worked so much last week (and thus spent at least 50 hours listening to musicals), I decided to do book recommendations based on… Continue reading Book Recs Based on My Favorite Musicals

These Violent Delights Book Tag

I heard tell of These Violent Delights, a historical-fantasy retelling of Romeo and Juliet, on Twitter. The book takes place in Shanghai and the Montagues and Capulets have been replaced by two rival gangs. I'm ALL FOR THAT. The book comes out November 17th AND there's a preorder campaign, so that's pretty neat. Mieke created… Continue reading These Violent Delights Book Tag

The High School Musical Book Tag

For several years, High School Musical formed a large part of my identity. I LOVE these movies (even the third one.) Where else does one find cheesy, earnest musicals about summer busboys and their romantic dramas? WHERE, I ASK YOU? I found this tag over at AceReader, a blog that makes me smile. Go read some of… Continue reading The High School Musical Book Tag

March Wrap-Up

At the beginning of March, I attended a liberation theology class at my church and borrowed a book from my pastor's library with every intention of giving it back. At the beginning of April, I am in lockdown in my studio apartment. ...what the hell happened? March Happenings Coronavirus is here and it's really serious.… Continue reading March Wrap-Up

Prediction Book Tag

Hello! It's time to predict the future! (Don't worry - we're talking about books, not politics.) Meghan @ Meghan's Whimsical Explorations and Reviews tagged me in this. I suspect my predictions won't be correct, but there's nothing to be done for it. RULES: .x. pingback to the creator of the tag, @bookprincessreviews .x. .x. tag the person… Continue reading Prediction Book Tag
