Review: Beowulf (Tolkien)

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 Beowulf is, as always, enlightening and hilarious. He did indeed explicitly intend that the series of lectures on Beowulf which I have used […]

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 […]

Quarterly Check-In

It’s that time of year! Instead of checking in halfway through the year, I like to do two quarterly check-ins and a final wrap-up at the end of the year to look at how I’m doing on the goals that I set in January. I’ve found that this, for me, at least, is a super […]

TTT: Books I Enjoy, But Rarely Talk About

I’m always down to shout about under-shouted books, so this week’s That Artsy Reader Girl TTT topic is one of my favorites.

March Wrap-Up

Well, this month was a lot. I’m not going to get into it. We’re all going through the same insanity right now, and I’m just spending every day tired and stressed out, so reading has been a safe haven for me right now, as I’m sure it has for many other people. However, it was […]

TAG: I Want to Read, But Also Don’t Want to Read

I saw this tag over on Marie’s blog @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books, and it looks like so much fun. It was created by Jamieson @ Jamishelves! While I do purchase books pretty often with absolutely no basis other than the usual title/cover/summary intrigue, there are quite a few that I’ve been on the fence […]
