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

2021 Achillean Books

This is a petty recs post. Someone on Twitter mocked achillean romance recently and it rubbed me the wrong way. I'm seeing more marginalized achillean voices in publishing and I think that's rad! What an exciting time! Why aren't we celebrating!? Anyway, here are some 2021 achillean book recs. Be Dazzled by Ryan La Sala… Continue reading 2021 Achillean Books

April Wrap-Up + Extended “Chaotic Good” Rant (I hated it)

Despite all the drama, I was able to read 13 books this month! Hooray! Other than that, there's not much to report. My friend Carrie mailed me some yarn.

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.

The Book Snob Tag

I've been called a snob more than once. Everyone has standards, triggers, and preferences (whether they know it or not); I have yet to meet a person who is truly open to everything. However, I've found that voicing my opinions sometimes triggers various iterations of, "You're such a snob!" It took me a long time… Continue reading The Book Snob Tag

Then I scrapped… Continue reading August Book Haul: I went to Powell’s…again
