2019: My Year in Books!

2019: My Year in Books!

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 […]

The Greatest Showman Book Tag

The Greatest Showman Book Tag

tI know that The Greatest Showman came out forever ago, and I know that there are some problematic elements in the way Barnum’s character was presented vs. the actual reality, but gosh I love the music from that movie and I have had this tag hiding in my ranks since early last year.  I’ve stolen this from Scorpio Book Dreams and she has a lovely blog so please, by all means, go check her out! This tag is a mash up of two different The Greatest Showman book tags – shout out to both Irish Reader and Rachel Rexds! The Greatest Showman […]

In Which It’s Too Hot, I Do Two Readathons, & I Bombard You With Reviews:  The July Wrap Up!

In Which It’s Too Hot, I Do Two Readathons, & I Bombard You With Reviews: The July Wrap Up!

Good morning everyone! I’ll be completely honest, July didn’t go quite the way I was expecting in the book department!  That’s not a bad thing, but it was different!  I was planning to join with the Camp NaNoWriMo spirit and do a lot of writing and learning about writing, and instead I ended up participating in two readathons! It’s been fun but stressful.  It’s also been hot here in New England!  The heat waves have been coming by brutally, so it’s be a good time to read. And the reading?  The reading was good this month.  I actually delayed this wrap […]

Mini Reviews:  Tess of the Road, Daughter of the Burning City, & The Game of Love and Death

Mini Reviews: Tess of the Road, Daughter of the Burning City, & The Game of Love and Death

I know I rarely do mini reviews (read: never) but every once and a while, I do humor myself and re-read a book that I’ve read before.  For posts like these, I don’t think that a unique, standing review is strictly necessary.  After all, I’ve already outlined all the good stuff about these novels.  However, experiences differ between an initial read vs. a reread, and I still want to talk about these books. To solve the repeat-book dilemma, I’ve decided that every time I collect 3 re-reads, I’m going to give y’all a set of mini reviews!  Not as much of a […]

OMG This Song Book Tag

OMG This Song Book Tag

I would not call myself a music lover.  I listen to stuff all over the place – I listen to Benny Goodman AND I listen to Kesha.  So.  Wide range.  But I don’t have refined tastes.  If I like the lyrics or if the song sets my heart on fire, I’m all about it.  Of course, this means that a lot of my playlists come from the top 40 for various years, then start branching out as, “hey, I like this song, maybe I’ll like more from this artist.” So wait.  Why am I talking about music? Because today, we’re […]
