TAG: Spring Cleaning!

The trees are starting to bloom, my backyard is full of lilacs, my lawn is finally flourishing, and there’s a vase of sunflowers next to me as I write this. It’s the perfect time for this tag, which I saw Tracy @ Truffle’s Literary Wonders do, and which was created by Amanda @ Between the […]

TTT: Favorite Books of All Time

I can’t believe I’m about to make this list public, but I feel pretty confident in it. It’s very infrequent that I label something as an all-time favorite book, and if you’ve seen me do it, it’s probably in reference to one of these ten books. I think this list makes sense. I’m less confident […]

Scifi vs Science Fiction

Hi, my name is Mary, and I’m obsessed with space. I once wrote an entire post dedicated to why I love space so much. I’ve reviewed First Man, talked about my top 5 fiction and nonfiction books set in space, wrote a space short story that was published and that will someday be a novel, […]

Bookshelf Tour: Nonfiction

This is 100% inspired by Bionic Book Worm‘s super fun bookshelf tour. I enjoyed seeing her go through her shelves each week so much that I really wanted to do the same! Obviously, I’m not on Booktube, where that sort of thing happens, and I’m never going to be, so I thought I’d take a […]

It’s here, it’s here, it’s here! Halloween is great, but CHRISTMAS! There is nothing more in the world that I love than Christmas. I have a lot of days off to just snuggle up with my entire family and my cats, to read lots of books, drink lots of tea, and hope for snow to […]

TBR Alphabet Tag

Ohhhh, this tag is going to call me out big time, and you’re all going to have a quick moment of jaw-dropping at the sheer amount of unread owned books that I have. Welp. Better to rip it off like a Band-Aid than keep hiding all these unread skeletons in my bookshelf. I found this […]

July Reads, Part 2

Previously: Part 1. For the first time in quite a few months, I managed to finish my monthly TBR, which I am pretty damn stoked about. The only outstanding books I currently have are all preorders that arrived during the summer, and I’ve even caught up on some other goals that I did not expect. […]

Monday Musings: Top 5 Nonfiction Books Set in Space

Welcome to Monday Musings, a series where I review books that I read pre-end of 2017, when I started writing wrap-ups, talk about characters or topics that aren’t as relevant, or sometimes a surprise non-bookish thing. This week, as most weeks in my life, we’re talking about space, so let’s get started! That should really […]

March Reads

IT’S MARCH! YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS! It’s my birthday! Halfway through the month, I accidentally blacked out in Barnes & Noble and bought eight new books. I swear, I didn’t mean to. Thankfully, most of them were sequels that were already in my cart. I only got one book for my birthday, too, so […]
