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 […]

#marywrites Books That Inspired My Books

I think I’ve told the Saintsverse story a million times now–I read the Crows duology over the course of a couple weeks, and when I went to bed one fateful Sunday, it was after finishing Crooked Kingdom. When I woke up, after my usual dreamless sleep, there was a name in my mouth–Landon Ash. I […]

#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.

TAG: Seven Heavenly Virtues

Oh boy, I’m about to remember that I think vice & virtues are stupid, and that the fact that chastity is a virtue makes me want to set a lot of things on fire. Y’all, do whatever the hell you want with your life. It’s your life. Vices & virtues are dumb. Life your life […]

Tattoo Tales!

I’ve already done a very similar post to this before, but it was just a general overview of all the tattoos that I have. Well, at the time. I’ve since gotten more. But! I’ve never specifically talked about just the bookish ones, and why I got those specific ones, so hi, it’s tattoo tales time! […]

Top 10 Reads of 2019

Wow, this is it. The end of a decade. I read some truly amazing books this year, and also more books than I ever thought possible. For a bit, I played with the idea of a Top 20 if I could read 200 books, but alas, I am a bit short, so we’re here with […]
