#marywrites: Foreshadowing

I am never, ever going to get over Noah Czerny introducing himself by way of I’ve been dead for seven years AND NO ONE BELIEVING HIM. Maggie Stiefvater often has some of my favorite foreshadowing because, much like Noah, she’ll be frank with us. I mean, the opening chapter of The Raven Boys literally shows […]

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 […]

TTT: Favorite Villains

This is going to be an interesting post to write because I usually love villains? And, let’s be honest, right from the gate, I pretty much love all of the villains below. Many of them, I believe their “villainy” is just being misunderstood, but, like, in a legit way, not in a Loki is sad, […]

TTT: Books to Reread

I’m a huge fan of rereading. I don’t do it nearly as often as I’d like to because there are so many other new to me books to read that I get wrapped up in, but if someone told me that I could only reread books for the rest of the year, these would be […]

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 […]

October Wrap-Up, Part 2

October Wrap-Up, Part 1 Out of 15 (with +2 potential) books saved for the month of Halloween, I ended up reading 12 + 1! I definitely would have finished my TBR if I didn’t go off the rails with RWRB and saying whatever to plans so I could finally read The Devil’s Thief and absolutely […]

Books I Need to Read Before the End of the Year

For the past few years of actually tracking my reading, I’ve had a very specific goal–read everything I purchased in the year previous. The last couple of months have been very preorder-heavy, and while October was full of a bunch of backlist books, I still have some major catching up to do. I also have […]

2019 Goals: Second Quarterly Check-In!

Look, I know that everyone did that tag for goals check-in during the summer, but I was on a quarterly system, and I’m sticking with it. I also kind of like checking in every four months instead of halfway through the year because it feels a little less stressful. Back in January, I outlined three […]
