TTT: Books For My Younger Self

There have been many, many times over the years that I’ve wished that I read something when I was younger, or that it had been released in time for me to read it at a certain age. Some books are just so poignant that you know your younger self would have benefited greatly from it, […]

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. I know that I’m definitely a culprit of constantly yelling about the same books, so I’m going to do my best to only include books on this list that I’ve never talked about […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]

College Lessons: You Don’t Have to Read Based on Your Age

I started my freshman year of college in September 2010. I went to the University of Maine at Farmington because, back then, it was the only public school that offered Creative Writing as a major. I wanted to give my mom a little bit of a heart attack, so I only applied to UMF. The […]

April Reads

I tried something a little new this month. Going in, I was way behind on my preorders, and I haven’t met my monthly TBR for the past couple months, so I made up a list of everything that I needed to read (16 books) and made a tentative schedule. 7 preorders sprinkled around the 5 […]

December Reads

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday ever, and this year was no exception.  LOOK AT THIS BOOKSTACK: I also maybe got even more than that? I swear, these are my last books of 2018. I have SO many books to read in 2019, and I honestly cannot wait. I’ve had the most incredible last […]

History of the Reader: Part 2

Hello!  The last time I posted about my bookshelves was in July of 2017, so it’s high time we talk about them again.  I’ve done a few small reorganizations in the months following that post in July, but nothing that really stood out.  I was also rereading the previous History of the Reader post (conveniently […]
