Finding My “New Normal” – The May 2020 Wrap Up

Finding My “New Normal” – The May 2020 Wrap Up

Posted June 8, 2020 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Good morning everyone and happy… June 8th! I thought about dropping this wrap up last Monday, but I wanted to give myself a little extra time to get my thoughts together as I usually write these posts the weekend before dropping them and who knows!  I may have finished an amazing book on May 31st! I’ve been personally doing a *little* better these days, and I think that comes with a better level of certainty and of course, more sunshine.  Like, literal sunshine.  I don’t do well in the spring.  While the world is still struggling, at least the outline […]

AVENGERS!  ASSEMBLE!  – The Marvel Avengers Book Tag

AVENGERS! ASSEMBLE! – The Marvel Avengers Book Tag

Posted May 22, 2020 in Bookish Things, Tags // 1 Comment

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 […]

House-Hunting, ARC Reviews, & a SMALL HAUL WHO AM I EVEN? – The September Wrap Up

Good morning everyone!  September is swinging to a close and here in Massachusetts… we are fully immersed in autumn.  The leaves are beginning to go a little red-orange around the edges and the mornings have been crisp and cool.  When I leave for work in the mornings, I can smell woodsmoke and for me?  That’s the truest sign that fall have arrived. This is my favorite season – I thrive in fall.  I feel more alive September – November than I do the rest of the year and I try to live these months to my fullest… which means getting out […]

I had zero expectations for this book, and it blew me away.  What a fantastic debut. Scars Like Wings combines so many of the things I enjoy in contemporaries, and attached them to an amazing girl and an important topic.  How many times have we judged people by their outside, or thought less of them because of some sort of difference that makes us, for no good reason, feel uncomfortable? Difference is not something people like to talk about.  Because we all want to believe we have no unconscious bias and that we are all perfect humans. Ava is the sole […]

Time to be Accountable… My Off-the-Grid Readathon IV Review

Posted July 19, 2019 in Readthons & Reading Challenges // 2 Comments

Good morning my beautiful monsters and happy Friday! Last weekend, I participated in the Off-The-Grid Readathon.  I love this ruleless readathon, because it helps me bust through my TBR.  It’s a bit difficult to tell who is participating, because “off the grid” means put away your phone!  I’ve got to be honest – I didn’t do as well with the “put away your phone” aspect this time, but I did unplug from the television, so for me that was pretty good. I had modest goals for this quarter’s readathon.  As you may remember from my TBR post, I worked all […]
