#marywrites: Introspection

Turnabout is fair play, right? Recently, I was reading for my CP, and I was starting to sound like a really annoying broken record that you kind of want to throw out the window. “Introspection!” I kept yelling, “We need more introspection!” The character wasn’t meant to be liked, but I also didn’t care about […]

Tag: Would You Rather

I saw this over on Jenna @ Falling Letters a few months ago, and I don’t think there’s actually an original person to have done this? It looks like a long, winding journey of different versions where, originally, there were additional questions to answer, and that meant it could take different turns, but it looks […]

TTT: Favorite Romance Books

I can think of every single one of these books without even trying, and they’re all going to be stupidly predictable. Like, y’all have seen me talk about every single one of these books, with one exception, at least once, and most of them several times. Yes, Emergency Contact is on this list, and yes, […]

Favorite Romance Tropes

There’s just so many. I’m going to try to limit it to my top five, which, like, don’t quote me on this later saying that these are my top five because there’s always something new that I haven’t realized that I love, or something that I’ve forgotten about. And look, three of these are basically […]

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 […]

Revision Update

I already had this post scheduled for the first week of March, but wow, how little faith I had in myself. Honestly, this post is probably timely given how psycho I sounded on Monday with my Madhouse savasana story, so this’ll just amplify the fact that not only are writers absolutely bonkers, but I literally […]

TTT: Books Written Before I Was Born

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is so much fun!  There’s a lot of open interpretation around the topic, too, so I’m going to do books that I’ve read & enjoyed that were written before I was born because why not talk about some old favorites!  They’re going to span the gamut, too, from […]

#marywrites The Madhouse Savasana Story

Yoga is weird.  Even when you’re just doing yoga to do yoga, it’s weird.  I mean, think about it.  Traditionally, yoga was done to prepare the body to sit in one place for hours on end so that meditation could be physically comfortable.  Now, though we’ve bastardized it a lot, yoga is still kind of […]

Black History Month TBR

I haven’t done a scheduled TBR outside of my typical monthly TBR in ages, and I’m so excited!  These posts are always hilarious to me because they’re literally just me rambling on about what books I hope to read, but I will 100% read this type of post from everyone else because we’re all just nosy […]

The Great Silmarillion Read Along

This announcement is a full month early, but I’m too excited not to post it at the end of my Tolkien birthday month celebration, so here we are! A couple years ago, I finally read The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien, and it was an experience. Honestly, though my reviews have continued to be chaotic and […]
