2021 in Review: Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles

Is it really annual wrap up time already? Where did all the time go? This is only the second time I’ve done this annual post in this type of format – I can’t believe I’ve been with The StoryGraph for over a year now. I still love the site – its stats, its acknowledgement of audiobooks, the graphs, the content warnings! There’s a lot on the StoryGraph I haven’t used, but I love what I have used and that it’s still growing! My biggest use of the StoryGraph is for my wrap ups… and none more than the annual wrap […]

A Quick Wrap Up for a Short Month – February 2021 Wrap Up!

February has been a month of exhaustion and of dreams, my friends. I read a lot less in February.  I had wild sweeps between deep and complete exhaustions and bubbling bursts of energy and a deep desire to do something – anything!  I almost never harness that energy productively, but alas, here we are.  March is already a week deep and I feel myself yearning more and more for spring.  The sun rises a little earlier every day and stays out a little later.  The worst of the darkness is behind us, and I hope the worst of the snow […]

Book vs. TV Show: Pretty Little Liars (S1E1) (SPOILERS!)

When it comes to Pretty Little Liars, you may be wondering why I’m only comparing one episode to the entire first book.  Why, my loves, that is because the Pretty Little Liars pilot contains everything in the first book of this series.  Well, almost everything, but lets just say that the events of the pilot cover enough of the Pretty Little Liars book that we end at the same place. My initial reaction to this was “thank goodness” because I didn’t like the book at all even though I knew that the show was incredibly popular.  The show, more than the book, was on my […]

  Oh wow.  Okay.  Where to start with THIS book. I guess I’ll start by extending Shepard the benefit of the doubt.  I think she was trying to write the most sensational, over-the-top, unrealistic and ridiculous teenagers ever.  I think.  I think this was on purpose and not bad writing.  Right? The next thing I’ll do it give Emily some props.  Of all the characters in this nightmare of a novel, I think that Emily was the most… human?  Her character is the only one here who I think could have had an actual, interesting, “doesn’t make me groan aloud and roll […]

The Psych Reading Challenge – Because Who Doesn’t Love Reading Challenges Based on Cancelled TV Shows That Just Won’t Die?

The Psych Reading Challenge – Because Who Doesn’t Love Reading Challenges Based on Cancelled TV Shows That Just Won’t Die?

After participating in the year-long reading challenge Start onYour Shelfathon in 2020, I knew I wanted to do at least one reading challenge in 2021 to help guide my reading.  I like the idea of reading challenges and that gamification aspect, especially how they make me look around and mix up my TBR and sometimes even search outside of it to meet challenges. So I figured I’d go find a really popular reading challenge like “Beat the Backlist” or something similar and join in. … But I know that you know… that I’m not telling the truth. (*cue music*) Okay no. […]
