A Love Letter to Clary Fray

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I love Shadowhunters. It should, honestly, also come as no surprise that I love Clary Fray. Not only have I already written something of a love letter to Clary, I’ve talked about why the term guilty pleasures bothers me so much, which is something many people […]

It’s The Great Silmarillion Readalong! (Week Four)

Not gonna lie, I’m really sad this is the last week. I’ve had an enormous amount of fun with this readalong, and it’s honestly made me love The Silmarillion even more. We’ve got the longest section for the last week, which I didn’t really intend to do on purpose, but the last two sections kind […]

Tag: Confessions of a Tea Drinker

My birthday is on the 29th, but I’ve already got a very Mary-specific post for next Monday, so here we are celebrating early! This weekend, we’re having a tea party, and whatever you’re thinking of, amplify the hell out of that. I got a gorgeous polka dot dress for it, white lace gloves, and my […]

TTT: Funny Book Titles

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is one of those ones that sound fun and easy, but then you actually get down to writing the post, and it’s surprisingly difficult! I mostly just wanted to list Fall Out Boy songs, but that would be long titles and not always necessarily funny–plus, you know, not […]

Magic Systems Need Rules

No matter who you are, you can think of a book that has a magic system that completely disregards all sense and just doesn’t have rules. Heck, who knows, you may find this refreshing, but I think I’m in the majority when I say that that kind of writing immediately takes me out of a […]

It’s the Great Silmarillion Readalong! (Week Three)

Wow, last week was an adventure. Tolkien basically broke down the biggest parts of the plot in about ten pages with just so little care for suspense. It was hilarious. This week is also the shortest of all of them (only four chapters coming in at probably 50ish pages), and next week is the longest […]

Book Tag: Feminism

Not gonna lie, I’ve been struggling with content for this month, and a lot of it has ended up focusing on my writing, which I’m also struggling with right now, so rather than today’s original post (which I’ve rescheduled twice now before finally putting back into my drafts, so maybe it wasn’t meant to be […]

TTT: Books Set in the UK

Because I didn’t get to go. Last year, right around this time, I was preparing to leave the US for the first time ever. In my life, I’ve only gotten on a plane a handful of times, and, up until a couple years ago, all of those times had been to FL. Whether it was […]

It’s the Great Silmarillion Readalong! (Week Two)

Not gonna lie, I definitely forgot how fun this book was. Like, I knew, but I’ve been reading a lot of very meta Tolkien books lately, and so, I forgot that this is an actually comprehensive story, and I’ve been having a damn good time. Here’s last week’s post ICYMI, which I’d definitely recommend checking […]

February Haul

It’s been a minute since my last haul–holy moly, since October! I didn’t end up posting a haul for my December books since I got literally everything that I asked for on my Christmas list. (This is not surprising considering I was the one who ordered them.) But I’ve gotten a few books sporadically here […]
