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 […]

A Case for New Adult

A children’s book is generally marketed for readers around the age of 5-8, though it depends on when the child starts reading. Around 8, they’re probably ready for some light chapter books, which start to teeter toward the middle grade age range of 8-12. Eventually, and this is where it gets sticky, young adult comes […]

Tag: Dark Academia

I saw this tag over on Kim @ Traveling Books, and I was hooked right from the idea of a whole tag about dark academia, but then the questions were fantastic and got me gushing, so here we are. This was originally created by Youtubers *emmie* & CarolynMarieReads! What is your favorite “academia” or “dark” book + […]

TTT: Characters I’d Name a Pet After

Well, I’ve already got two bookish cats, so I’m definitely going to cheat on two of these, but I’ve thought of so many different characters for my future cats, so this is also going to be a ton of fun. This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is definitely something I think about a lot, […]
