The Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag (2021 Edition)

Posted June 30, 2021 in Tags // 3 Comments

Following tradition on this blog, the month of June means that at some point… we’ve got to do the Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag.  I love this tag because it’s so widely used in the community… but also from a personal perspective, it’s a time capsule for me and my reading experience.  Every year I continue to nod to the posts of the past so I can see what has changed… and all the books I “really want to read” that I still haven’t read. This year’s post is coming a little bit late – I know, I’m sorry! – […]

A Little Awareness, A Little Appreciation, & A Lotta Book Stuff:  January 2021 Wrap Up!

A Little Awareness, A Little Appreciation, & A Lotta Book Stuff: January 2021 Wrap Up!

Welcome to the first wrap up of 2021, where we get to look at everything that got rolling as the new year started and we can celebrate how strikingly different everything is now that it’s not 2020 anymore! I kid, of course, because we still have all the same things to work on as we did in 2020, all the same concerns and challenges and opportunities for growth.  But the psychology of hope is nice, right?  For myself, 2021 hasn’t been too bad on a personal level, and for that I’m truly grateful.  Still, there’s the continued opportunity to do […]

  Skyhunter was everything I wanted and more. There was something about the cover art for Skyhunter that caught my eye last summer – something about the neon, science fiction feel of it that drew me to the book.  Despite being authored by Marie Lu, who is fairly popular within the community, I haven’t heard any buzz about Skyhunter.  I stumbled it by chance, and to this day, I still haven’t seen a single review.  I’m ready to holler about this book, because I really liked it. First, Talin is mute.  I have never read a book with a main character who is unable to […]

Good Riddance, 2020! My December Wrap Up.

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 […]

What’s This?  A BookTube Channel?  – My November Wrap Up!

What’s This? A BookTube Channel? – My November Wrap Up!

Hello everyone and happy Monday! I’m going to be making a few changes to my wrap ups, starting with this month.  First of all, I’m removing the “haul” section.  There’s a couple reasons for this. I always feel weird talking about new books and ARCs when there are so many out there who can’t bring in books every month because of their location or financial situation. I started a BookTube. In many ways, #2 feels like it cancels out #1.  I don’t get dozens of books every month, either… but Book Hauls seems like a central theme on BookTube and it […]
