May Wrap-Up

Honestly, thank heck next month is Pride. After this hellish month, I need a reason to celebrate. I ended up five-starring all but one book this month, and four were preorders that I was very excited about, so that makes me even happier. I’m also wandering my way back toward writing, so it’s really just […]

HAPPY PRIDE!

Happy 2021 Pride! I am so hyped to be alive and thriving for another Pride, and I cannot wait to bring you the queerest month on the blog yet! Last year was pretty amazing, not gonna lie, but I didn’t really make the whole month about Pride. I did a few posts: Favorite LGBTQIAP+ Books […]

Food in Books

This discussion honestly comes at the most perfect time because tomorrow’s post is all about the recipes that I want to try this summer with fresh fruit in season, and I’m always ready to shout about food in books. This is also your future warning that all of my books have copious amounts of food […]

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 […]

March Wrap-Up

It’s that time of the year! My birthday is at the end of March, which I’ll talk about at the end of this long wrap-up, but it means a lot of books received, a lot of tea drunk, way more pastries than normal, going completely off the rails with my reading, and just basically celebrating […]

February Wrap-Up

I don’t know how this is possible, and I’m not going to question it at all, but all of my books were five star reads this month, and I am living. Granted, I reread two books that I know I love, including–get ready, this is the first of four times I will shout about it–preparing […]

January Wrap-Up

Wow, I’m tired. And what a month. I managed to read 4/5 TBR books, and I would have gotten the fifth done no problem if it weren’t for the overwhelming nature of getting a new job that actually trusts me enough to give me work to do. SHOCKING, I KNOW. Anyway, I don’t want to […]

TTT: Best Lines

This is going to be purely movie lines, and if any are similar to the book, that’s only because Peter Jackson pulled it directly from the book. Ideally, I should have kept track while I was rereading the trilogy last year, but I’m the worst, and I didn’t, so you’re going to have just deal […]

How Does the Movie Compare?

You know what would have been a really good idea? Taking notes while I was watching the movies recently, immediately after I’d finished reading the books. Alas, I was too swept up in Middle-earth–how does one get too swept up in a movie they’ve seen literally dozens of times? NO IDEA–and thus, I took literally […]
