2020 in Review: Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles

Posted January 8, 2021 in Blogging, Bookish Things, Checking In // 0 Comments

It’s that annual wrap up time of year again! When I set up the placeholder for this post a year ago and called it “Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles” I had no idea how true that would ring.  I know I was thinking about following through on my personal reading challenge as well as Start On Your Shelfathon… but y’all?  2020 has been rife with reading challenges.  And blogging hurdles.  I am plum worn out. Usually, I use this post to share Goodread’s “My Year In Books”.  This year, I’m going to pull a little data from that page, but they’ve stripped […]

Hello everyone!  Good morning and HAPPY JANUARY 4TH 2021.  I know that 2021 isn’t going to solve all our problems.  Or any of it, actually, but the illusion of hope and change and new beginnings are always nice tings to hold on to – it gives us a little bit o strength to pick ourselves up and persevere. *deep breath* 2021 y’all. But not without one last wrap up, and then we can say adieu, right?  So lets do this. All the things I’ve been reading I allowed myself to have a fairly light reading month in December.  I read some […]

Mini Reviews: You’re Never Weird On The Internet, Station Eleven, and Just One Damned Thing After Another

Just in time for the end of the year, I’m bringing you another set of mini reviews!  This is the first year that I’ve had so many rereads of books I’ve read before and reviewed on the blog, since there was another set of mini reviews over the summer.  Sometimes, you just need to reread some books, you know? This time, I’m checking in quickly on three books I really liked in the past, as well as one that I’d only listened to previously and now I’m reading in hardcopy.  These are all bite-sized reviews and quick impressions (similar to […]

AVENGERS!  ASSEMBLE!  – The Marvel Avengers Book Tag

AVENGERS! ASSEMBLE! – The Marvel Avengers Book Tag

Posted May 22, 2020 in Bookish Things, Tags // 0 Comments

For the longest time, it felt like there were SO MANY Avengers movies coming out.  One every few months.  I like the various avenger films, some more than others, but even I was starting to burn out.  I think we’ve had about six months between the last Avengers film and Black Widow, and honestly… thank you, I needed that breather. I stole this tag from Hammock of Books, who posted it last fall.  Thanks for sharing, Kay, this one looked super fun and I couldn’t resist!  I believe the original was Super Space Chick on BookTube, but this one got tricky to […]

April Showers Bring May… Showers? – The May Wrap Up!

Posted May 27, 2019 in Checking In // 4 Comments

I cannot TELL you guys how happy I am that all the chaos of May has died down and here we are on the brink of summer.  I’ve been working really hard to get back into the flow of things – moving really messes up my mental schedule.  I’ve got a buuunch of posts to write up in the next few weeks but we’re going to make it a good one. Plus, I’m just really excited that summer is rolling around.  I’m not normally a summer person, but New England weather is wonky and we’ve had says that are 35F following […]
