TTT: Favorite Movies

I thought that maybe doing favorite albums and movies in the same month was just asking to prove myself wrong and realize I’d made a grave mistake, but I was able to think of my top ten favorite movies in about four seconds, so I feel like I might be on the money with these. […]

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. It’s September? What??? ICYMI, I like to do two quarterly check-ins with […]

August Wrap-Up

What a damn good month! It’s been a hellishly long time since I had this many five and four star reads, and I’m just so stoked. I’m also 0% surprised that nearly all of these were fantasy. I read Fellowship of the Ring this month, and it just made me crave fantasy so much that […]

An Adventure in Tolkien: The Fellowship of the Ring

Previously on An Adventure in Tolkien: Look, I did not ask to fall in love with Beowulf EVEN MORE, but here we are. Wow, it has been a Minute. I reviewed Beowulf back in June, and, before that, both Tolkien’s biography & his letters, but I haven’t read a book in the main legendarium since […]

TTT: Favorite Albums

Music is such a huge part of my life, but I almost never talk about it on the blog. I’ve been to over 40 concerts, many of them repeats of my favorite bands, and I can, with confidence, say that music has definitely saved my life in the past. My taste is wild–I can jump […]

Book Adaptations

I think it’s pretty universal that no matter how many times we’ve been burned by book adaptations, we’re still going to scream with excitement about a new one. I mean, sure, there are definitely times that we’re wary, but generally? That wariness comes with a healthy dose of HECK YES FINALLY. We should probably start […]

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 […]

June Wrap-Up

Unholy Satan, this is such a long wrap-up post, I am actually a little sorry. Like, this is bananas. It goes on forever. I did a lot of all of the things this month, and though it started out pretty rough, plus stayed that way for a while, the end has given me a lot […]

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 was another difficult month mentally, so my reading & writing suffered for the first half, and then I definitely felt an uptick in mood about halfway through the month, so that’s probably reflected below, but still. This whole being a person thing is just really hard sometimes. Mini Book Reviews Seven Endless Forests | […]
