The Cookie Book Tag

The Cookie Book Tag

Good morning everyone! Today, I’m doing a book tag that’s themed around one of my favorite snacks of all time.  They’re versatile and can be made to be crumbly, gooey, savory, sweet, eaten warm or cold, served a la mode, and they make your house smell AMAZING while you are baking them. Yup, I’m talking about cookies. Back in December, Marie tagged me in the Cookie Book Tag, and I spent a while re-watching that chocolate chip cookie GIF and thinking about how easy it would be to make cookies and how delicious they are… and now I’m here with my […]

10 Book to Movie Adaptations I Actually LOVED

10 Book to Movie Adaptations I Actually LOVED

Most of us bookish sorts talk about film adaptations with contempt.  We see the stories we know and love adapted into monstrosities that make our hearts ache and misrepresent everything we love to the non-reading public.  Believe me, I can relate.  I watched this happen with particular favorites, like Ready Player One and The Dark Tower. All that said, I’ve also come across several book-related films that I have particularly enjoyed.  Some of these weren’t even particularly faithful adaptations… but they managed to retain (for me) the spirit of the book and brought to life characters I adored.  In the bookish community, […]

Traveling the World in Books

Traveling the World in Books

In 2017, I joined up with Top 5 Tuesday to write a post of five bookish places I’d like to live in.  When a similar topic popped up on Top Ten Tuesday, I wanted to take it in a different direction. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Europe last year, and ever since, I’ve had a deep desire to travel and see the world for myself.  While financially that isn’t possible for me, it’s still possible to visit these places in books!  And I can dream.  While fantasy worlds are all well and good, our own planet […]

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

My Ten Favorite Book Subjects (The Data Speaks!)

Hi all! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the longest books you’ve ever read.  While this is a great topic, it’s very similar to The Mountain Book Tag which I did earlier this year, so rather than repeat content, I thought I’d bring you a different top ten… one of my very own. This week, I want to talk about my top 10 book tags!  This isn’t in regard to Book Tags in the traditional sense… these are subject tags I use on my LibraryThing account.  For all the books I’ve read, I go through and tag them with […]

The Birthday Book Tag

The Birthday Book Tag

Hi everyone! Guess what!!! Yup!  I know you thought it was last year, but turns out it is kind of an annual thing. So for fun, I thought I would do this cool Birthday Book tag I saw over on Laughing Listener last December! It looks like this was originally created by Brunette Bibliophile over on YouTube.  Have y’all ever noticed how BookTube comes up with the best tags?  Both are great bookish stops – one blog and one vlog – so check them out if you’ve got a second. 🙂 And without further ado… the Birthday Book Tag! Count […]

A Dream of Adventure and Avolea

A Dream of Adventure and Avolea

My loves, I open today with a quote: “Once and again, I stray down and listen to the duet of the brook and wind, and watch the sunbeams creeping through the dark boughs, the gossamers glimmering here and there, and the ferns growing up in the shadowy nooks.”   Lucy Maud Montgomery was in love with her island home.  The sighs in the orchard and the gloriousness of summer peeking over green hills blossoms to life in her books.  The above excerpt from her journal is enough to take your breath away with only a hint of imagination required. I […]
