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 | […]

TAG: The Book Snob

Y’all, I’m definitely a book snob, and I don’t even care. I saw this tag over at Words About Words, and I was just feeling so called out about halfway through Bree’s post that I had to give it a whirl. I have no idea who created this tag, so if you know, please let […]

Pride TBR

HAPPY FUCKING PRIDE, Y’ALL! Will I be shouting about Sense8 all month? DUH. Are Erin & I watching only LGBTQIA+ movies for our weekly movie nights? ABSOLUTELY.

They’re so important, though. If you can hook someone with a powerful opening line, damn, you’ve got them for […]

Duology vs Trilogy vs Standalone

Ah yes, the age old argument. What is the perfect number of books for a series? Or perhaps we don’t need a series at all, and we should just have all standalones forever (okay, no thanks, though). The truth is, there is no right or wrong to this, it’s all down to preference and circumstance, […]
