Nine Magical Middle Grade Series to Read (Instead of Harry Potter)

Nine Magical Middle Grade Series to Read (Instead of Harry Potter)

Posted March 30, 2022 in Bookish Things // 4 Comments

Every so often, the topic comes around again that it is time to let go of the Harry Potter series. It served a purpose – it served a very important purpose for many of us in our childhood, but re-evaluating what we know about Rowling now, it’s best to turn our sights to other media and uplift those authors who are more inclusive. As someone who lived and breathed Harry Potter from the moment the books were published, I know how challenging this is. For those who are struggling, particularly those who want to share the magic Harry Potter brought […]

The #NotAll Book Tag

The #NotAll Book Tag

Posted November 14, 2019 in Tags // 0 Comments

I’m one of those people who absolutely generalizes when she complains about things.  Everything is the worst or I love everything about something.  It’s a bad habit, and one I want to try and overcome because stereotyping is horrible, whether it’s people or days of the week or books or whatever.  Today’s book tag totally brings that vibe. Thanks to the Orangutan Librarian for creating this #notall book tag!  It’s a fun idea, and I absolutely stole this from Holly @ Nut Free Nerd a little over a year ago.  Thanks, Holly for bringing this tag to my attention! #NotAll Cover Changes || […]

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 […]

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I’m in a lovely mood today, even though the next week is going to be crazy busy!  My best friends are getting married in about a week and everything is coming together, really exciting!  This week I’ve done fun things like get a haircut, play with my cats (#favorite) and OMG DID YOU GUYS KNOW IT’S AUTUMN.  I had hot apple cider on my way home from work the other day and I was in heaven. Saturdays mean another book box!  This week’s poll was a close one – Percy Jackson only won by one vote!  Make sure to […]

Welcome Ladies & Gents, to the August Wrap Up! August has been a busy month!  For me, there’s been vacations and birthdays and a trip to the dentist (BLECH), and a solar eclipse!  I am so so proud of myself because I have posted every day this month!  I know a lot of people are heading back to school within a week, if they haven’t already.  Can you believe summer’s almost over?  SHEESH.  I think that we all have had a crazy month, so let’s get down to it!  EXCITING THINGS ARE AFOOT, MY PHOENIX FRIENDS. No, not that kind […]
