The Wonderstruck Book Tag // Taylor Swift + Books= YES!

Posted January 30, 2020 in Tags // 6 Comments

Welcome, loves, to the first book tag this year!  Tags are something I enjoy on the blog, and I absolutely intend to keep them up, especially because it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers, and add a bit of a fun list-style post to the daily roundup. January’s tag is one I stole from Purely Olivia, and one she posted about this time last year.  This tag combines Taylor Swift and books, which is a fun combo, and Olivia created it herself!  I very rarely talk about music on this blog (except for tags like The Song Request […]

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

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

Posted August 26, 2019 in Checking In // 5 Comments

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 […]

Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George

Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George

This was a book I was either bound to love or hate.  It’s like a new movie with a lot of big name actors.  It’ll either be wonderful or absolute ridiculousness riding on the power of its stars.  Speak Easy, Speak Love has a lot of elements I like – it’s set in the 1920s and it’s based on Much Ado About Nothing.  That’s my favorite Shakespeare play – a great comedy and light romance with a lot of wit instead of the usual foolishness.  Add the glitz and glamour of a ’20s speakeasy, and there are a lot of promises. For […]

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

Posted August 20, 2019 in Readthons & Reading Challenges // 0 Comments

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 […]
