Tag: Spring Cleaning

I saw this over on The Orangutan Librarian, and since I’m also trying to avoid spring cleaning my bookshelves, I thought it’d be fun to avoid them in the same way–with this fun tag! We may end up having the same answer to one of these, too, because I got all ranty in the comments […]

Why I Like to Reread

Given that I’m fresh on the heels of an entire Grishaverse reread, this seems like the most appropriate time to discuss this! Reread is perhaps one of my favorite things in the world, and though I haven’t done a lot of it over the last few years, I’m really trying to convince myself that it’s […]

April Wrap-Up

WELL, I got a lot of reading done, but this month was a rough one for me, and I’ve been leaning heavily on words to survive it, so while I read a lot of amazing books, I’m exhausted, and, you know– In trying to continue to read diversely, I’m going to be adding a few […]

Shift from First Person to Third Person

I feel like I may make some people mad with this post, so I’m going to disclaimer it right away: I don’t like first person. I can get past it in contemporary, but it sometimes makes me not read a book when it’s in fantasy. This is purely subjective, and it does not reflect these […]

Tomes I Want to Read

I have been vibing fantasy tomes lately. I definitely go through phases where I just want some light fantasy and end up reading four Shadowhunters in a row, or I just can’t stand the thought of trying to figure out a magic system, so I swallow a heaping pile of contemporaries. But lately? I don’t […]

Tag: Bookish Info Dump

I know I’ve been tag-heavy lately, but I’ve been scrounging a bit when it comes to discussion ideas, and reading Tolkien books is hard with being in the office all day (as opposed to just lounging at home for the past year), so my Wednesdays have been hard to fill lately, which just means you […]

Future!Mary does not want to deal with deciding what her top ten favorite settings are, ughhhhhh. I recognize that I could also just not do […]

Goals Check-In

Oh, hi! I can’t believe it’s already April! Because doing halfway check-ins stress me the heck out, I like to do quarterly ones on my goals, so here we are, a quarter way through the year, checking in on my 2021 goals. ICYMI, here are the goals themselves, none of which I actually remember, and […]

March Wrap-Up

It’s that time of the year! My birthday is at the end of March, which I’ll talk about at the end of this long wrap-up, but it means a lot of books received, a lot of tea drunk, way more pastries than normal, going completely off the rails with my reading, and just basically celebrating […]

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 […]
