OWLs Magical Readathon TBR

It’s official! OWLs are back, and not a moment too soon. I think everyone would agree that a magical readathon is exactly what we all need right now, and while I considered going hard just because I have some extra free time, I also need to respect the fact that my reading habits have changed […]

TBR: Women’s Month!

March is Women’s History Month! And though my end-of-year data tells me I primarily read books by women anyway, I’m going to cut out all possibility of male authors for this month and just read a heck ton of ladies. Books by and about women. Margaret @ Weird Zeal is also hosting a readathon for […]

TBR Alphabet Tag

Ohhhh, this tag is going to call me out big time, and you’re all going to have a quick moment of jaw-dropping at the sheer amount of unread owned books that I have. Welp. Better to rip it off like a Band-Aid than keep hiding all these unread skeletons in my bookshelf. I found this […]

College Lessons: You Don’t Have to Read Based on Your Age

I started my freshman year of college in September 2010. I went to the University of Maine at Farmington because, back then, it was the only public school that offered Creative Writing as a major. I wanted to give my mom a little bit of a heart attack, so I only applied to UMF. The […]

O.W.L.s Late Readathon TBR

I know what you’re thinking–um, weren’t the O.W.L.s three months ago in April? YES. But I missed sitting for them for whatever reason (I honestly can’t remember if I even had a good reason because I was so interested in everyone’s TBRs), and so I’ve decided to sit them in the last two weeks of […]

Monday Musings: To TBR or Not to TBR

That is the question! Welcome to Monday Musings, a series where I review books that I read pre-end of 2017, when I started writing wrap-ups, talk about characters or topics that aren’t as relevant, or sometimes a surprise non-bookish thing. This week, we’re chatting about something I see literally every day–people making TBRs for the […]

Short Story Collections

I’m a little late on the game to short story collections, as I am to most books, but in the past two or so years, I’ve really started to love them, though I’ve only read a few! Since I’ve started this challenge, Thursday Thousand, of writing a short story every week, I want to read […]

Women’s History Month Reading Challenge TBR

Okay, I definitely have too many books scheduled to read this month, but when I saw Aurora post about this challenge, I knew I had to at least try to participate. Weird Zeal is hosting a reading challenge in honor of Women’s History Month, and the goal is to read lots of books written by […]

Weekend Readathon!

The last time I did a readathon was in November, so hey, back at it again! I truly do enjoy readathons, especially during spaces of time when I’m not stressing out about other things, and they’re a fun little way to make reading competitive? With myself? I don’t know. But I’m seriously falling behind on […]
