TTT: Top 5 Middle Grade reads of 2020

Sim, there are six books here. Não, I don’t really care, especially because it makes dropping the covers together in a more aesthetically pleasing way, and look, I couldn’t choose one of these not to feature, so olá, here’s my top six favorite middle grade reads of 2020! They’re in alphabetical order because I’m not […]

All I Want for Christmas

I’m nearly thirty, so I really don’t know why we’re still doing Christmas presents quite the way that we are, but when my mom asked me what I wanted this year, I said a rolling pin, and she said that wasn’t good enough, so I gave her a list of books that I’d end up […]

November Wrap-Up

This month just felt like constant chaos. I was tired more than I was not, and I know a lot of that had to do with NaNoWriMo, but I’m so looking forward to Christmas when I can just take a week off and not do anything. I didn’t get to read as much as I’d […]

Book Tag: End of Year

I saw this floating around a few weeks ago and kept thinking that there was no way the end of the year had already arrived, but alas, here we are. I recently saw this on Lisa @ Way Too Fantasy, and it seemed like a fun, quick little callout for myself! Are there any books […]

How I Book Shop

Even though I came up with the idea for this post and I’m sitting here writing it, I still feel like it’s silly. I mean, who cares how I book shop? It feels like such an indulgent thing to talk about and expect people to actually read. But I’ve noticed that there’s a very specific […]

TTT: Top 20 Favorite Covers of 2020

I know this is hella unorthodox, a top twenty, and I could have easily solved this problem by just dropping all the non-2020 releases, but the way we roll is by doing whatever the hell I want, and I picked twenty covers right off the bat that I absolutely adored out of the books I […]

#marywrites: Foreshadowing

I am never, ever going to get over Noah Czerny introducing himself by way of I’ve been dead for seven years AND NO ONE BELIEVING HIM. Maggie Stiefvater often has some of my favorite foreshadowing because, much like Noah, she’ll be frank with us. I mean, the opening chapter of The Raven Boys literally shows […]

#NaNoWriMo: Week Four

I can’t believe it’s the last week of NaNo! I know that the last day of November is next week, but this wrap-up will come on Thursday because I’m going to visit my best friend on Friday (don’t worry, it’s a private residence, and we don’t go anywhere but her couch) and won’t get back […]

TTT: Women I’m Grateful For

This is going to be a bit different this week, and not in the why are we talking about movies on a book blog again way. That Artsy Reader Girl gave us a Thanksgiving freebie this week with the prompt to list things we’re grateful for, and while I could have done characters or books […]
