Tag: 20 Questions

I saw this over at Jessica @ The Awkward Book Blogger, and my sleuthing ended with a now-deleted blog, so I can’t track back to the beginning of who created it. I was originally going to post another writing post, but given that would be my third this week, and I don’t want to inundate […]

It’s the Great Silmarillion Readalong! (Schedule)

Welcome, friends! We’re about to embark on one hell of an adventure.

January Wrap-Up

Wow, I’m tired. And what a month. I managed to read 4/5 TBR books, and I would have gotten the fifth done no problem if it weren’t for the overwhelming nature of getting a new job that actually trusts me enough to give me work to do. SHOCKING, I KNOW. Anyway, I don’t want to […]

TTT: Books Written Before I Was Born

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is so much fun!  There’s a lot of open interpretation around the topic, too, so I’m going to do books that I’ve read & enjoyed that were written before I was born because why not talk about some old favorites!  They’re going to span the gamut, too, from […]

Just How Deep Does the Lore Go?

I have next to no idea what I meant when I jotted down the idea for this post literally just as just how deep does the lore go, like what?  What does that mean, past Mary?  What were you aiming to do with this post?  Was this literally just supposed to be several paragraphs of screaming about […]

TAG: Tolkien Time!

Today’s post was supposed to be a review of one of the very many Tolkien nonfiction books that I’ve received recently.  I’m particularly excited about Tolkien and the Great War, and I hope to get to it soon, but with everything going on this month, it’s just not looking feasible.  Admittedly, that means I’m probably […]

TTT: Middle-earth Cities I Want to Visit

You know those memes that are like if you could visit any fantasy world, and everyone always says none of them?? It’s crazy to me every time because I would literally pay more money than I will ever make in an entire lifetime to go to Middle-earth. And I get the reasoning behind most of […]
