In Which I Actually Work on my WIP & Read Shakespeare Retellings: The August Wrap Up!

Hello beautiful people and welcome to the August wrap up! Heyyy remember when I said last month that my mental health was fairly poor, so I wanted to take a step back and try and re-center myself, etc. etc.?  Well, that didn’t happen until about halfway through August once I tore myself out of the temptation of readathons and had a whole weekend without books. It was pretty difficult for me, but I think it was needed.  I’d been reading so much that my escape was becoming a chore and I was going into overload.  You may not notice it […]

To Succeed, Or Not to Succeed?  That is the Question. (Retelling-a-Thon Wrap Up!)

To Succeed, Or Not to Succeed? That is the Question. (Retelling-a-Thon Wrap Up!)

So as you guys know, I announced a little more than a week ago that I would be participating in this year’s Retelling-a-Thon… specifically Shakespeare Week!  Retelling-a-Thon is actually a pretty small little readathon.  It’s hosted by Frayed Books, and this week was hosted by Harker over at The Hermit Librarian, so a big heaping thanks to the both of them for this fun little readathon! For Shakespeare week, I committed to reading seven books in my original announcement post.  To review, these were: Foul is Fair by Hannah Chapin Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard Tandem by […]

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard

It’s been a really long time – almost a decade – since I’ve tried to decipher the hidden meanings behind a play.  But I’m going to try!  I’m pretty sure that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is about … death.  I suppose that shouldn’t be a revelation, since it’s in the title, but man I struggled with this one? Honestly, this play just made me feel stupid.  I feel like there must have been some exciting and deep conversation to be had about this play.  Maybe it’s the sort of thing that’s a bit lost in translation?  Maybe it’s better with group […]

Retelling-A-Thon Annoucement:  Team Shakespeare!

Retelling-A-Thon Annoucement: Team Shakespeare!

Good morning everyone!  Happy Sunday! After having so much fun with the Reading Rush, I took to Twitter to find another readathon.  Yes, yes, I know.  I’ve come a long way from shrugging off readathons!  Honestly, after I signed up for this one, there was a moment of deep regret.  Not because of the readathon, because it’s super cool!  Just more…  I kind of miss my writing and when I’m deep into reading and blogging like this, I don’t have time for both. BUT. Here we are! For August, I’ve decided to sign up for Retelling-a-Thon! For most, August is […]
