What Do You Meme? – The MEME Book Tag!

What Do You Meme? – The MEME Book Tag!

Posted August 7, 2020 in Tags // 1 Comment

A couple years ago, Sarah over at Written Word Worlds created her version of the Meme Book Tag, and because memes are super fun, I want to revisit this older tag!  As I mentioned a couple months ago with The Burrito Book Tag, I thought it would be fun to time travel a little and go back and find some of these older book tags I missed, and do them! I know that memes change over time, and some of these may be older, but I’m going with the original memes Sarah used.  If you want to snag the tag […]

Do you guys every just go out hunting for fun book tags? I do.  I like to do the ones trending the community, I really do, but also?  It takes me so long to get to them that trying to keep in the trending curves feels a little pointless for me.  After all, I just did the #NowWeRise Book Tag, and that one was inspired by the release of Children of Blood and Bone.  So yeah, I got to that several months after the sequel was released.  I will never be on-trend, haha, but I’m okay with that! I found today’s book […]

Everyone has their reasons for loving a book. Sometimes, it is mechanics – the characters, the plot, the writing style.  But I also think that people have those books they were reading when they really, really needed an escape.  Whether it’s a personal tragedy, a particular dark spell, or a worldwide pandemic… it’s good to find an escape.  And while I know escapism isn’t always the best reaction to the difficulties of the world… sometimes you need it. And I do want to take this moment to apologize – I said in my Support Indie Bookstores post that I would not […]

My “Crossing” Booklist: Ten Favorite Books I Would Take To The New World (2020 Edition)

You know that old question: “If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have 10 books, which 10 would you pick”?  It’s an old question, and one that pops up on Top Ten lists all the time.  In fact, I’ve already done a post like this, back in 2018!  At the time, the Top Ten Tuesday meme had a lot of great answers I’d ever thought of… including books that would actually be useful on a desert island. Honestly, I always interpreted that questions as “you’re stuck on an island, what books would you read over and over […]

2019: My Year in Books!

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

Good morning everyone!  How has the beginning of 2020 gone for everyone so far?  Has everyone stuck to their New Years Resolutions?  I’m rubbish at resolutions, if I’m being completely honest, but one of my big ones this year is to take better care of myself physically – sleep, hydration, diet, etc.  I mean, most people have that, right?  Here’s hoping that I can keep to it, and you all are doing amazingly on your resolutions as well! Every year, I do a bit of a review on my blog to look at all the reading I did in the […]
