Tag: 10 Year Challenge

Much like last week, I’m feeling some kind of way lately, which is going to resolve itself next week in a summer break, but, until then, we’re doing another tag! Once again, thank you to Zezee with Books for their amazing collection of book tags, which has kept me afloat these past couple of weeks.…

More Men MCs in Fantasy

Disclaimer: I’m mostly talking about YA here. I can probably count on one hand how many adult fantasies I’ve read in the last decade, although none of those few had men for their MCs, either. I truly don’t think that if I had to put together a top ten fantasy books that feature men MCs,…

TTT: Why I Love Reading

This is somehow going to be the hardest That Artsy Reader Girl topic ever. It shouldn’t be because there are so many reasons why I love reading, but that’s it right there, that’s why it’s the hardest. How do you narrow down something so monumental into ten reasons? And they’re definitely not going to be…

#marywrites Duology to Trilogy

This could just be blatantly calling out every duology that’s been turned into a trilogy, but I’m labeling it as a #marywrites because I have some writing-specific thoughts, y’all. However, yes, I am going to say outright that I’m thinking about Blood & Honey by Shelby Mahurin, and it is 100% the reason for why…

TTT: Queer Fantasy MCs

Stop the Homophobia in Fantasy

(This doesn’t get salty. It started there. Also, every book cover you see has positive queer rep!) Literally why, though? Why is there ever homophobia in fantasy? If you’ve created an entirely separate world from Earth that includes magic and your own cultures and faiths, why would you include any of the bullshit that takes…

TTT: Favorite Couples

I had this at a solid ten, and then I was working on another TTT for this month about queer fantasy MCs and had Yadriel on that list and somehow not him & Julian on this one, and I just?? Decided to do a list of 12 instead so the cover aesthetic could stay strong.…

Why I Like to Reread

Given that I’m fresh on the heels of an entire Grishaverse reread, this seems like the most appropriate time to discuss this! Reread is perhaps one of my favorite things in the world, and though I haven’t done a lot of it over the last few years, I’m really trying to convince myself that it’s…
