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

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

Top Ten DNFs of 2020

Another band wagon for me! I DNFed a fair number of books this year. These are the ones I remember best. Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente I thought this book was trying too hard to be The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It also made way more gender jokes than I felt comfortable with.… Continue reading Top Ten DNFs of 2020

Among Us Book Tag

I'm not very good at Among Us, but I still love it. I like to switch up my character a lot, but my favorite iteration is brown with wolf ears. I saw Breakeven Books do this tag on BookTube and I have never wanted to do a tag more. Here's to murder beans and broken… Continue reading Among Us Book Tag

Hey, do you all remember that YA fantasy novel about trans brujxs and gay ghosts that came out in September and took the world by storm? There's a book tag based on it!

October TBR: Stretch Goal City

It's spooky season now. This year, I'm leaning in EXTRA hard to the pumpkins, black cats, and skeletons. (The election is incoming. Let me have this joy.) I crafted this overly ambitious October TBR that I almost certainly won't finish, BUT...what if I did? Wouldn't that be sooo spoooky? Seriously, there are dozens of books… Continue reading October TBR: Stretch Goal City
