Neon Gods Book Tag (ORIGINAL)

Help, I’m obsessed. I am trying, once again, to whittle down my Currently Reading pile and finish more of the books I own. Neon Gods is making this very difficult. If you haven't heard, Neon Gods is a modern Hades x Persephone retelling where Persephone travels to the Underground willingly and enlists Hades to help… Continue reading Neon Gods Book Tag (ORIGINAL)

I have bad news: due to supply chain issues, there is going to be a book shortage. Do I understand it fully? No. Am I afraid? Yes. The shortage is coming, whether we like it or not. You know what that means: It's time to finally read all the backlist books on our TBRs. If… Continue reading Backlist Books to Keep Me Company During the Great Book Shortage

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Fictional Crushes

NOT ME POSTING A TOP TEN TUESDAY ON TIME FOR ONCE. Best of all, today's topic is FICTIONAL CRUSHES. My name is Lauren and I have a Type. Hades from Greek mythology I still secretly want to be goth; crushing on the god of the Underworld seems like a decent way to achieve that. The… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Fictional Crushes

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
