TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic: COMFORT READS. My comfort reads confirm what I already believe: things ARE as bad as they seem. Strangely, I find these books uplifting. I like knowing I'm not alone. These are my top ten comfort reads. I wouldn't call any of them "lighthearted." (Well...maybe One Last Stop.) Would You Rather?… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

Books, Movies

Encanto Book Tag

I watched Encanto while housesitting and ended up in a puddle on the floor. This movie is INTENSE. It absolutely deserved the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. If you haven't yet, please watch it. I found this book tag, created by Passport to Eden over on BookTube, on It's Just a Coffee Addicted Bibliophile. The… Continue reading Encanto Book Tag

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books Too Good to Review Properly

I have a notoriously difficult time reviewing books. Today's Top Ten Tuesday asks me to list books that are SO good, they leave me speechless. Here are some books that I really enjoyed and also can't review. When I try to write about them, I blubber incoherently about my feelings. Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books Too Good to Review Properly

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I hope Santa brings

So listen. I'm sure I'll be happy with any of the books Santa (secret or otherwise) brings. For the sake of Top Ten Tuesday, I am playing favorites. These are all the books I'm hoping for, though maybe I should ask Santa for a Kindle Unlimited subscription. The Bridge Kingdom by Danielle L. Jensen This… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I hope Santa brings

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)

Backlist Books to Keep Me Company During the Great Book Shortage

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

The Crying Book Tag (ORIGINAL)

You might not know this about me, but I cry a lot. I learned in a college class (Psychology 101, perhaps?) that a good cry cleanses your body of toxins. Crying, it turns out, is good for you. A lot of books have made me cry lately. I wanted to honor them in a tongue-in-cheek… Continue reading The Crying Book Tag (ORIGINAL)

This tag was created by El @ El's Book Reviews, Andee @ Mouse Reads, and Finn @ Evidently Bookish. I found it at Althea is Reading. Here we goooooo...… Continue reading Cute Mutants Book Tag

HAPPY MARCH! The VERY amazing Margaret @ Weird Zeal created this excellent original tag for Women's History Month (which is THIS MONTH! RIGHT NOW!) Margaret has "a lot of feelings" (same) and writes lovely, passionate reviews. She recently shared about her editing process, inspiring me to print out my own NaNo novel and give editing… Continue reading Women’s History Book Tag
