Midnights Book Tag

It's here. Taylor Swift's Midnights is finally here. And people have already created book tags in its honor. Three hours after the album's release, Taylor dropped a 3 AM edition with MORE SONGS.

October Wrap-Up: Starring Seasonal Depression

I have been doing my best not to think about climate change. Then we got 80-degree weather for almost a week in the middle of October. I would not like to be confronted with this reality, thank you. Autumn's a really hard season for me. On the one hand, I love the colder weather and… Continue reading October Wrap-Up: Starring Seasonal Depression

July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Well. It's been a couple of weeks, that's for sure. I have been trying to ward off full-on panic for about a month with mixed success. As I mentioned in my last post, my brain is soup. One good thing happened last month: my niece Josie was born. She and my sister-in-law are doing great… Continue reading July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

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

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

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)
