TTT: 5-Star Predictions

In February, I dropped a list of books that I thought I would end up loving so much that I’d give them five stars. Well, it’s been a hot minute since that post, and I’ve read all of the books, so I thought we’d check in, see how it all turned out, and then compile […]

TTT: Books That Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies

I know I’ve been talking about adaptations a lot lately, but ya girl is back on her game of actually watching things, and I’ve been having a hell of a fun time. Thus, this week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic had me hooked. I am very specifically not going to talk about adaptations that I’m […]

Why I Love Friendships in Books So Much

Friends are so, so important. There is nothing, not even the relationship between siblings, as close as a best friend, someone you’ll tell all your darkest and deepest secrets to. With siblings, it’s not really a choice. I would take a bullet for my sister & brother without question. But I chose my best friends. […]

TTT: Books I’ve Loved, But Never Reviewed

I’m a big fan of this week’s That Artsy Reader Girl top ten topic. I mean, I’m always game to shout about books that I love, but don’t talk about a lot. I’m aiming to not just pick books I haven’t reviewed, but also ones that I haven’t ever really talked about on the blog. […]

#marywrites: Being Inspired

This post is not meant to call me out about the book I haven’t written yet, but that’s probably going to happen along the way. Because we’re not chatting any of my normal haunts today, but something I’ve only mentioned here or there. Recently, in one of my writer’s group workshops, while discussing the introduction […]

TTT: Books With Colors in the Title

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is one of those ones that sounds super easy, right, but then you try to do it, and it’s sneaky hard! Books with colors in the title, like what? I’m only going to use books I’ve already read so I can scream about them appropriately, but damn, this […]

Taste is Subjective

I mean, it goes without saying, right? Or, it should, at least, go without saying that taste is subjective. I always feel wary of recommending any form of media to people because what I might think is amazing others might think is pretty subpar. Still, it’s a beautiful sort of relationship when you realize that […]
