Bookish Birthday Party Tag

Bookish Birthday Party Tag

My birthday is this week, so I decided to do the Bookish Birthday Party Tag! I got it from Kristen at Metaphors & Moonlight months ago and saved it for this wondrous occasion. 😀 This is how you play according to Kristen: “For this tag, you just need to choose five different books. Then, for […]

My Life in Books Tag

My Life in Books Tag

It’s time for another book tag! I saw this on Delighted Reader, but it was originally posted by Rantings of a Reading Addict. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. I’m only going to use books I’ve read & liked, except when that obviously isn’t the case. Most link to my reviews Find A Book For Each […]

Update & Turning 6

Update & Turning 6

Here I am! As you may have noticed (or not) I’ve been more MIA than usual, but I’m here with an update. Lucky you! Okay, so I usually slow down with the blog this time of year because it’s a mixture of busy and vacation time, so I let the blog rest. It also coincides […]

Body Image in Books

Body Image in Books

Okay, I need to discuss rant about something that’s really bothering me lately. It’s wonderful that there continues to be an increase of diversity in books, whether it’s ethnicity, sexuality, mental disorders, etc. I’m also extremely happy that body image is being tackled more often, especially in YA. We’re seeing more young woman who are […]

My Top Reads of 2016

My Top Reads of 2016

Well, another year down. My blogging and reading slowed down considerably here towards the end. I even lowered my Goodreads reading goal from 120 to 90 just so I’d “complete” it. *shrugs* A cheater, I am. There are plenty of books from 2016 that get some major lovin’ from me though. I like to look […]

Update for Now: Not Much

Update for Now: Not Much

So. Yeah. It’s been a little while, eh? I haven’t been in the mood to blog, read, or interact with people in general. It’s taking a lot to force myself to even write this post. Just call me Ms. Antisocial. I’m trying, though! Kind of. As for reading, I’ve started numerous books, but almost immediately […]

Confession: I Need Order!

Confession: I Need Order!

Want to know what gives me hives? Reading a series out of order. I’ve gotten a little better over the years, though. It doesn’t bother me when it’s more of a companion series that you mostly find in romance. They tend to focus on different characters in each book, so it isn’t that big of […]
