Make-Your-Own Book Box #1 – Ravenclaw SORCERER’S STONE Box

Posted September 2, 2017 in Bookish Things // 9 Comments

A couple weeks ago, I was skulking over at Kyera’s Library and she posted this awesome present that her mother gave her.  For her birthday, her mother made her two homemade bookish boxes a la OwlCrate, etc., and they were creative and brilliantly done (check them out).  I thought it was a fabulous idea and from time to time, I’m going to share with you themed book boxes that I would create! I wanted to start off easy, so the central figure in today’s homemade book box is the stunning 20th Anniversary Edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone – Ravenclaw […]

5 Minor Characters that Steal the Show – #Top5Tuesday

5 Minor Characters that Steal the Show – #Top5Tuesday

Posted August 29, 2017 in Memes // 9 Comments

While a lot of love in the bookish community goes to MCs and mortal enemies, the minor characters don’t get enough love. These are some of my favorite characters.  They make the books shine, and honestly?  Some of them FLAT OUT steal the show.  These underappreciated, underloved, small character are what this week’s Top 5 Tuesday is all about!  Shanah @ The Bionic Bookworm hosts this super fun weekly feature.  This week, she encouraged everyone to pick ten characters, but I’m going to stick with five, because I’m a REBEL. There are much spoilers here, guys. I’m serious.  If you see a […]

BAM! POW! ZAP! Insta-Reads from Buzzwords – #Top5Tuesdays

Posted August 8, 2017 in Memes // 20 Comments

Good morning my sweet centaurs! I bounced back and forth about whether or not I was going to participate in this week’s top five, as buzzwords aren’t really my thing.  When I think buzzwords, I think phrases like “wildly popular” and “long-anticipated” etc. etc.  Then I decided, ANY word can be a buzz word if it gives me that warm, bumblebee feeling in my bones. As always, Top 5 Tuesdays are hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Bookworm, and her prompt is: Top 5 buzzwords that make me want to read a book.   Pirate I am a sucker for […]

2016 Reading Haul

2016 Reading Haul

Posted January 1, 2017 in Reading // 0 Comments

Although this list is nowhere near complete (what with not updating reading dates on some old favorite books I reread) – here’s Goodreads’ evaluation on my books read in 2016! I always set myself a goal of 24 books – two a month – but I don’t stop there!  This year, I hope to beat 48, but we’ll see how it goes!  I’ll post again sometime this week about my favorites and least favorites of the year.

From Wands to Wings:  Literary Women Who Inspire Me.

From Wands to Wings: Literary Women Who Inspire Me.

Posted March 8, 2012 in Reading, Thoughts // 1 Comment

March 8th is International Women’s Day, and in honor of that event, I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about three women in literature who inspire me.  As a disclaimer, you must keep in mind that I mostly dabble in the world of YA Fantasy, and so my choices are from that world.  This is not to say that women like Scarlet O’Hara and Jane Eyre aren’t inspirational… they are simply ones that weren’t selected this time through. Ready?  Go. Max Maximum Ride, James Patterson While I generally disliked the Maximum Ride serious (or at least failed to be […]
