TTT: Places in Books I’d Love to Visit

I’ll be honest, I’m never going to leave the North Shore. My proximity to both Salem and New Hampshire makes me so happy that I’ll forever stay right here.

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 […]

TTT: Characters I’d Name a Pet After

Well, I’ve already got two bookish cats, so I’m definitely going to cheat on two of these, but I’ve thought of so many different characters for my future cats, so this is also going to be a ton of fun. This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is definitely something I think about a lot, […]

TTT: Characters I’m Still Screaming about

While reading Return of the Thief recently, I unintentionally tweeted a list of characters that I’m still screaming about because I was currently screaming about Eugenides (yes, he’s on this list), and then realized that I haven’t screamed about any of those characters recently, so here we are! I’ve listed them in alphabetical order by […]

Urban Fantasy VS High Fantasy

This is not going to be a divisive post. Wow, I just had the hardest time spelling the word divisive. I hate the versus here because it sounds like I’m pitting urban fantasy against high fantasy when, really, I’m just talking about what I like about each, and why they’re such different subgenres of fantasy, […]

October Wrap-Up

IT’S SPOOKY SEASON! I am never not going to post this gif during Halloween. I remember when this first happened, and I will love it until the end of my days. I read and watched a lot of spooky things this month, and though I am definitely done reading those kinds of books, I had […]

Favorite Male Characters

I felt like the boys were a little left out last month when I was screaming about my favorite female characters, so here we are again! I just embarked on a reread of The Raven Boys the week before CDTH came out, so uh, yeah, this list is Gansey’s fault, actually. As before, this is […]
