Review: Crows Duology

It’s been four years since I first read the Crows duology, and I am so ready. Please let this destroy me as much as it did the first time. Initially, I tried to reread the entire Grishaverse before the show came out, but one of my faults is not reading series all at once, but […]

TTT: Books with Nature on the Cover

I’m always screaming about flowers, just in general, but especially on books, so I wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity of this week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic to just weep over all the beauty of our natural world. Whether it’s flower crowns or a legit forest, the natural world is one of my […]

#marywrites: High Fantasy

I’ve been having such a love affair with high fantasy lately, which is a weird sentence to write and not even because of the actual content, but because I’m almost always reading high fantasy, so I’d like to say I don’t know what changed, but I do. I haven’t had a TBR for the last […]

Tag: Spring Cleaning

I saw this over on The Orangutan Librarian, and since I’m also trying to avoid spring cleaning my bookshelves, I thought it’d be fun to avoid them in the same way–with this fun tag! We may end up having the same answer to one of these, too, because I got all ranty in the comments […]

TTT: Tarot Decks

I’ve got quite a collection of tarot decks, and it occurred to me the other day that I was teetering toward ten, and it might be fun to do a TTT post about it. This is, admittedly, only eight decks, and one of them I don’t own yet, but I’ve spent so much time with […]

Why I Like to Reread

Given that I’m fresh on the heels of an entire Grishaverse reread, this seems like the most appropriate time to discuss this! Reread is perhaps one of my favorite things in the world, and though I haven’t done a lot of it over the last few years, I’m really trying to convince myself that it’s […]

April Wrap-Up

WELL, I got a lot of reading done, but this month was a rough one for me, and I’ve been leaning heavily on words to survive it, so while I read a lot of amazing books, I’m exhausted, and, you know– In trying to continue to read diversely, I’m going to be adding a few […]

Review: Shadow & Bone Netflix Adaptation

Am I ready for this? NOT EVEN A LITTLE! I’ve talked about my history with Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse so many times before that I’m just going to trust y’all know and are ready for me to absolutely lose my mind. I’m watching this over the course of four two-hour slots since I’m trying to watch […]

TTT: COVID Lessons

Is it too preemptive to talk about the lessons I’ve learned in the last year when we’re still in full swing of the pandemic and likely headed toward even direr straits as the US continues to say fuck all to the fact that COVID is still actively a thing? Honestly, maybe, but I have learned […]

Shift from First Person to Third Person

I feel like I may make some people mad with this post, so I’m going to disclaimer it right away: I don’t like first person. I can get past it in contemporary, but it sometimes makes me not read a book when it’s in fantasy. This is purely subjective, and it does not reflect these […]
