February Haul

It’s been a minute since my last haul–holy moly, since October! I didn’t end up posting a haul for my December books since I got literally everything that I asked for on my Christmas list. (This is not surprising considering I was the one who ordered them.) But I’ve gotten a few books sporadically here […]

Tag: Dark Academia

I saw this tag over on Kim @ Traveling Books, and I was hooked right from the idea of a whole tag about dark academia, but then the questions were fantastic and got me gushing, so here we are. This was originally created by Youtubers *emmie* & CarolynMarieReads! What is your favorite “academia” or “dark” book + […]

TTT: Favorite Villains

This is going to be an interesting post to write because I usually love villains? And, let’s be honest, right from the gate, I pretty much love all of the villains below. Many of them, I believe their “villainy” is just being misunderstood, but, like, in a legit way, not in a Loki is sad, […]

#marywrites: Using Other Characters

The entire point of this post is this: everything is fanfiction of something else. Don’t think Eragon is original, but instead an attempt to copycat some of the elements from LOTR? That’s fine, Tolkien readily admitted that he pulled from Norse & Celtic mythology to write LOTR. And, realistically, all mythology stems from ancient Pagan […]

Character Spotlight: Charon

Character Spotlights are a (bi)weekly Wednesday series where I talk about some of the characters from the novels I’m working on, or have already completed. They’ll just be little snippets of their lives so that you can get to know them a little, and hopefully one day read about them in a published book! For […]

Thursday Thousand: The Twins

Welcome to the special Halloween edition of Thursday Thousand! In February, I began a short project where I had to post a short story every week, on Thor’s Day, that had only one parameter: it had to be, had minimum, 1000 words long. It could be any genre, any length beyond that, and could even […]

TTT: Books I’m Avoiding

I’ve been completely absent recently, and that’s because one of my best friends came down to visit this weekend. She was here Friday-Monday, so I’m waaaaaay behind on both reading posts since about Thursday afternoon, on reading in general, and on blogging myself! However, I couldn’t miss a Top Ten Tuesday topic that I’m here […]

Favorite Series: The Queen’s Thief

Jessica @ The Awkward Book Blogger wrote today about one of her favorite series, The Illuminae Files, (which I still somehow haven’t read) and asked the age-old question–what is one of your favorite series? Immediately, several sprung to mind. Shades of Magic, of course! But it kind of feels like everyone knows about VE Schwab […]
