It’s the Great Silmarillion Readalong! (Schedule)

Welcome, friends! We’re about to embark on one hell of an adventure. ICYMI, next month, while the Society is celebrating Tolkien month, I’ll be posting a four-week readalong of The Silmarillion in honor of one of my favorite authors of all-time (and one of my favorite books). This readalong was born from my endless love […]

Women’s History Month TBR

Happy Women’s History Month!  (Also, happy Tolkien month (yes, again), keep an eye out for Silmarillion posts every week!)  I’m so hyped about my TBR this month, especially because I have a lot of women authors to choose from, but I had some very specific goals in mind, and I’m pretty pleased with how this list is shaping up.  […]

TTT: I Really Want These Books

It feels appropriate, as we approach my birthday in March, that I should talk about all the books that I want since I’m not actually able to buy any of them because there are eight books that I have already preordered, and I just literally do not have room for more. This doesn’t meant that […]

World-building

This was originally slotted as another in the #marywrites series, but given how much I love world-building in general, I thought I’d just mic drop discussion it. There’s so many different kinds of world-building–soft vs hard, urban vs high, subtle vs massive exposition–more than I’m even thinking of right now, and while I could break […]

Tag: Opposites!

I saw this over at Lisa @ Way Too Fantasy, and the questions looked so fun that there was no way I wasn’t doing it. Unnecessarily pitting books against each other? What the heck else would I do with my Thursday? Also, I think this video is where the tag originates, but can’t confirm for […]

TTT: Mardis Gras Covers

Happy Mardis Gras! In celebration, That Artsy Reader Girl‘s topic for this week is purple, yellow, and green covers, and you know ya girl is always down to shout chaotically about some beautiful covers. I’m not totally certain how I want to format this–three doesn’t add up to ten nicely, so maybe I’ll just do […]

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 […]

#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 […]
