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 […]

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 […]

The Great Silmarillion Read Along

This announcement is a full month early, but I’m too excited not to post it at the end of my Tolkien birthday month celebration, so here we are!

TTT: #Relatable Moments

Look, I’m an introvert, through and through.  You may disagree with me, if you know me IRL, but that’s probably because you’ve attended one of my yoga classes, where my energy is high af.  In general, though, I like to be left alone, I need to recharge after being around other people, and I’d be happy […]

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 […]

The Truth About Morgoth

Do I know what this post is really supposed to be about? I meannnnnn, not really? If we’re being honest? It’s going to be a hot mess, so you’ve been warned. But I’ve talked about Morgoth a lot on the blog–my Silmarillion review is practically ancient at this point, and it really needs updating, but […]

An Adventure in Tolkien: The Book of Lost Tales, Part One

Previously on An Adventure in Tolkien: I have literally fallen in love with Gimli, and so has Legolas. Tudo bem, I’ve got a bone to pick with this Foreword. Christopher clearly has got some Thoughts about people who say that The Silmarillion is “too difficult”, and I’ve got many of those same Thoughts because IT’S […]
