Anyone Hungry? How About a BURRITO BOOK TAG?

Anyone Hungry? How About a BURRITO BOOK TAG?

Do you guys every just go out hunting for fun book tags? I do.  I like to do the ones trending the community, I really do, but also?  It takes me so long to get to them that trying to keep in the trending curves feels a little pointless for me.  After all, I just did the #NowWeRise Book Tag, and that one was inspired by the release of Children of Blood and Bone.  So yeah, I got to that several months after the sequel was released.  I will never be on-trend, haha, but I’m okay with that! I found today’s book […]

The #NowWeRise Book Tag

The #NowWeRise Book Tag

The #NowWeRise Book Tag was created by Bec’s Books back in 2018, and while I didn’t participate in it back then, I’ve been holding on to it since I saw it drop on Written Word Worlds.  This book tag was create to celebrate Children of Blood and Bone, which was one of the first very impactful YA fantasys featuring rich minority cultures.  Others came before, and other came after, but if you ask readers the first time they truly interacted with a non-White non-Western-European-inspired fantasy world… Children of Blood and Bone will jump first to many, many minds. As it’s a […]

My “Crossing” Booklist: Ten Favorite Books I Would Take To The New World (2020 Edition)

My “Crossing” Booklist: Ten Favorite Books I Would Take To The New World (2020 Edition)

You know that old question: “If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have 10 books, which 10 would you pick”?  It’s an old question, and one that pops up on Top Ten lists all the time.  In fact, I’ve already done a post like this, back in 2018!  At the time, the Top Ten Tuesday meme had a lot of great answers I’d ever thought of… including books that would actually be useful on a desert island. Honestly, I always interpreted that questions as “you’re stuck on an island, what books would you read over and over […]

Mini Reviews! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The Graveyard Book, & Anne of Green Gables

Mini Reviews! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The Graveyard Book, & Anne of Green Gables

Time for another round of mini reviews!  The following three books are all books I’ve read before and have reviewed before on the blog, but they’re still good books and deserve a little time in the spotlight. These reviews are short and sweet, with a handful thoughts and impressions but nothing too deep. So, these are a little more spread out than the last time I did a mini review bundle.  Both The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and The Graveyard Book were actually read in October.  I’ve been putting the bits about the books I’m reading in this post as I read […]

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, […]
