TTT: Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic for TTT is one of my favorites. I wrote a post a million years ago about my auto-buy authors, and while I could go scroll pack in my posts to try to find it, I’m not because that would take forever, so let’s consider this a kind of […]

TAG: Mid-Year Freakout!

I don’t know if I would call this a “freakout” since I’m feeling pretty chill about my reading this year. It’s definitely way down as compared to usual, but I’ve found a steady rhythm that works for me this year. At the time of this being drafted, I’ve read 50 books (WOOOOOOO), which means I’m […]

May Wrap-Up

This whole being a person thing is just really hard sometimes. Mini Book Reviews Seven Endless Forests | […]
