As Above, So Below

This was supposed to be a post breaking down the entire Paranormal Activity franchise, and I was truly looking forward to rewatching the first few and watching the last few for the first time. I loved the first one so damn much when it came out even though it absolutely terrified me, and while I […]

Halloween TBR

Bold of me to assume I actually managed to find books in between my panic in August and now. But I kind of did? This is way less ambitious than my 17 books for last year’s Halloween, which might mean that I’ll actually read them all, but we’ll see. Almost all of these are new […]

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.

Review: Beowulf (Tolkien)

Previously on An Adventure in Tolkien: FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS UNHOLY, why can’t we write 10k word query letters anymore? It seems almost tradition now to quote Christopher Tolkien’s introduction in my introduction to a JRR book, and we’re not about to break tradition now because the introduction for JRR’s translation of […]

Here There Be Dragons

Ah, gosh, I love dragons so much. I mean, who doesn’t? The purpose of this post is going to be kind of muddled, but we’re going to talk about why dragons are the best, the very neat thing about their lore, and I dunno, probably some dragon book recs at the end. Definitely not ten […]
