Favorite Romance Tropes

There’s just so many. I’m going to try to limit it to my top five, which, like, don’t quote me on this later saying that these are my top five because there’s always something new that I haven’t realized that I love, or something that I’ve forgotten about. And look, three of these are basically […]

TTT: Top 10 Reads of 2020

I know what you’re thinking–no top 10 fantasy?? Why am I even here?! I know that I’ve done a top five six middle grade, top ten contemporary, and top ten sequels, so while it might seem terrible that I’m not doing a top ten fantasy, well. More than half of these are fantasies, and while […]

TTT: Top 10 Sequel Reads of 2020

Yo whaaaaat, we got a top ten?? Look, I don’t put sequels on my general top ten reads because I like to only include books that are new to me, and I was going to do a top five for this list, but there were so many sequels this year that absolutely knocked it out […]

TTT: Top 20 Favorite Covers of 2020

I know this is hella unorthodox, a top twenty, and I could have easily solved this problem by just dropping all the non-2020 releases, but the way we roll is by doing whatever the hell I want, and I picked twenty covers right off the bat that I absolutely adored out of the books I […]

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 […]

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 […]
