Tag: Dark Academia

I saw this tag over on Kim @ Traveling Books, and I was hooked right from the idea of a whole tag about dark academia, but then the questions were fantastic and got me gushing, so here we are. This was originally created by Youtubers *emmie* & CarolynMarieReads! What is your favorite “academia” or “dark” book + […]

TTT: Characters I’d Name a Pet After

Well, I’ve already got two bookish cats, so I’m definitely going to cheat on two of these, but I’ve thought of so many different characters for my future cats, so this is also going to be a ton of fun. This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is definitely something I think about a lot, […]

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 […]

Urban Fantasy VS High Fantasy

This is not going to be a divisive post. Wow, I just had the hardest time spelling the word divisive. I hate the versus here because it sounds like I’m pitting urban fantasy against high fantasy when, really, I’m just talking about what I like about each, and why they’re such different subgenres of fantasy, […]

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: Favorite Movies

I thought that maybe doing favorite albums and movies in the same month was just asking to prove myself wrong and realize I’d made a grave mistake, but I was able to think of my top ten favorite movies in about four seconds, so I feel like I might be on the money with these. […]

Quarterly Check-In

I want to say that I am holy hell shocked that we’re here at the second quarterly check-in of goals, but this year is basically stuck in the space time continuum and doing whatever the hell it wants, so this honestly makes sense. It’s September? What??? ICYMI, I like to do two quarterly check-ins with […]

August Wrap-Up

What a damn good month! It’s been a hellishly long time since I had this many five and four star reads, and I’m just so stoked. I’m also 0% surprised that nearly all of these were fantasy. I read Fellowship of the Ring this month, and it just made me crave fantasy so much that […]

An Adventure in Tolkien: The Fellowship of the Ring

Previously on An Adventure in Tolkien: Look, I did not ask to fall in love with Beowulf EVEN MORE, but here we are. Wow, it has been a Minute. I reviewed Beowulf back in June, and, before that, both Tolkien’s biography & his letters, but I haven’t read a book in the main legendarium since […]
