I’m Here and I’m Queer

I want to tell you a story. I had something else planned to post today, but in light of recent events, this is more appropriate. I don’t want to drag it all through the mud again, but the tl;dr of it is that Becky Albertalli was ruthlessly bullied and harassed until she felt forced to […]

September Book Haul

I accidentally bought more books? I really can’t believe this is a thing I have to post again because I just bought books at the end of August, and I said I wasn’t going to go into a bookstore, and then I freaking did, and UGH. I even said to Erin, “I don’t have to […]

Quarterly Check-In

I want to say that I am holy hell shocked that we’re here at the second quarterly check-in of goals, but this year is basically stuck in the space time continuum and doing whatever the hell it wants, so this honestly makes sense. It’s September? What??? ICYMI, I like to do two quarterly check-ins with […]

August Book Haul

So I did this really absurd financially destructive thing the other day. I wanted to preorder Casey McQuiston’s new book, One Last Stop, but I was also looking at a bunch of other books, and Barnes & Noble is an absolute mess, so if you preorder something as well as get other books, they sometimes […]

August Wrap-Up

What a damn good month! It’s been a hellishly long time since I had this many five and four star reads, and I’m just so stoked. I’m also 0% surprised that nearly all of these were fantasy. I read Fellowship of the Ring this month, and it just made me crave fantasy so much that […]

TAG: TBR

I saw this over at Caro @ Bookcheshirecat, and, sadly, it appears the original creators of the tag have deleted their blogs, so I can’t credit them, but, you know what I can do? IT’S CALL OUT TIME! Y’all, my TBR is always out of control, and is especially terrible right now because I’m about […]

An Adventure in Tolkien: The Fellowship of the Ring

Previously on An Adventure in Tolkien: Look, I did not ask to fall in love with Beowulf EVEN MORE, but here we are. Wow, it has been a Minute. I reviewed Beowulf back in June, and, before that, both Tolkien’s biography & his letters, but I haven’t read a book in the main legendarium since […]

TTT: 5-Star Predictions

In February, I dropped a list of books that I thought I would end up loving so much that I’d give them five stars. Well, it’s been a hot minute since that post, and I’ve read all of the books, so I thought we’d check in, see how it all turned out, and then compile […]
