Series vs. Standalones: Which Do You Prefer?

Series vs. Standalones: Which Do You Prefer?

Posted March 10, 2020 in Bookish Things, Reading // 8 Comments

As a reader, I’ve never been one to devour whole book series at a time.  Even in a world where Netflix binges are part of a person’s regular repertoire, I patiently sift through series one episode at a time, over the course of several months.  I know that would drive a lot of people crazy but… I’m patient.  I have time.  I prefer to savor the experience. Up until recently, it felt like every new book was part of a trilogy.  If not a trilogy, then an extended series.  Or it was a spinoff of something else written by the […]

I don’t think that I’ve seen any unboxings for Nerdy Post on anyone’s blog?  As far as swag boxes go, I don’t think I’ve overstitching to say that it’s one of the more popular, reliable ones.  Even though it’s a bookish box that doesn’t contain a book, I think it’s a pretty good box if you’re interested in the theme and are looking for some fun swag items for Instagram, or to spruce up your personal space. Nerdy Post has a few different levels of boxes, depending on what you’d like included.  The cost of these boxes range from $9.95 […]

Happy December, loves. This is it.  This is the end of the year, and fresh with good memories and bad ones – joy and regret.  This is the final push to reach our reading and writing and blogging goals.  I’ll be doing a proper 2018 wrap up tomorrow, but suffice it to say that things went well this year, at least as far as reading goes! I hope everyone has had a marvelous holiday season!  For myself, I am exhausted and excited for the year to be swinging to an end.  The holidays are always delightful, but tiring, don’t you […]

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

While I fell completely into The Raven Boys and wanted more of this strange and unusual world, The Dream Thieves left me decidedly unsatisfied.  My understanding of the fan community is that The Dream Thieves is often a favorite in the bookish community, so this is probably a bit of an unpopular opinion…but it just didn’t do it for me.  I’m sorry, but there you have it. This isn’t to say that The Dream Thieves is an inherently unenjoyable book.  It’s still entertaining, and for fans who like Ronan’s character, this book will be a holy grail of awesome.  I’m here for Richard Gansey III and […]

Turkey Coma: My November Wrap Up

Turkey Coma: My November Wrap Up

Posted November 26, 2018 in Checking In // 9 Comments

Here in New England, fall danced a little in October, teasing us with early smells of woodsmoke and pumpkin pie – then BAM!  We went straight into wintery cold.  As I’m typing this wrap up, it is a horrifying 0F outside, which is dastardly cold in my personal opinion.  Really, I will never be happy with the extremely in my neck of the woods. But some positives wit cold weather come holidays, time spent with friends and family, and of course, the ideal climate to curl up with a good book and a mug of cocoa. I went absolutely book […]
