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 […]

TTT: Bookish Witches

If you don’t think I have an entire shelf dedicated to books with witchy MCs, think again. Witches are my favorite characters to read about, which is probably just because I want to see myself reflected in books, and they’re also, unsurprisingly, my favorite characters to write about. It’s going to be a while since […]

Why I’m No Longer Talking About Writing

I recognize that this title is misleading, especially given more than half of the posts that I put up, but I promise it’s going to make sense by the end of this post. I can take myself right back to high school, handing out spiralbound copies of my book to literally any friend that would […]

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 […]

March Haul

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! I ended up not getting a ton of books from my friends & family like usual, so I decided to gift myself with a huge haul of books. I also wanted to support AAPI authors, and this felt like the perfect opportunity to combine the two. We’ve got a ton of […]

TTT: Places in Books I’d Love to Visit

I’ll be honest, I’m never going to leave the North Shore. My proximity to both Salem and New Hampshire makes me so happy that I’ll forever stay right here. New England is a beautiful place, and it will never relinquish its hold on my heart. Thus, though this week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is […]

TTT: Funny Book Titles

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic is one of those ones that sound fun and easy, but then you actually get down to writing the post, and it’s surprisingly difficult! I mostly just wanted to list Fall Out Boy songs, but that would be long titles and not always necessarily funny–plus, you know, not […]

Magic Systems Need Rules

No matter who you are, you can think of a book that has a magic system that completely disregards all sense and just doesn’t have rules. Heck, who knows, you may find this refreshing, but I think I’m in the majority when I say that that kind of writing immediately takes me out of a […]

Book Tag: Feminism

Not gonna lie, I’ve been struggling with content for this month, and a lot of it has ended up focusing on my writing, which I’m also struggling with right now, so rather than today’s original post (which I’ve rescheduled twice now before finally putting back into my drafts, so maybe it wasn’t meant to be […]

TTT: Books Set in the UK

Because I didn’t get to go. Last year, right around this time, I was preparing to leave the US for the first time ever. In my life, I’ve only gotten on a plane a handful of times, and, up until a couple years ago, all of those times had been to FL. Whether it was […]
