Journey to Middle Earth: An August 2019 Flick the Wick Unboxing!

Journey to Middle Earth: An August 2019 Flick the Wick Unboxing!

Good morning everyone and welcome to my second Flick the Wick unboxing!  As you may remember, I purchased their June box and was completely overwhelmed by how much I loved it.  Smaller boxes can be pretty hit-or-miss, so I never know what I’m getting into… but I feel safe saying that if you like candles, Flick the Wick is a great bet! So, the monthly box itself is not a subscription box.  These are one-off boxes without auto-renewing that you can go into monthly and say, “hey, I like that theme!” and buy it.  Prices range between $35 and $45 for the monthly […]

The Identity Crisis Book Tag

The Identity Crisis Book Tag

Now, I’ve got to admit.  I’m not as crazy all over the WHO WOULD YOU BE?! quizzes as I was when I was younger.  When I was younger, there was Quizilla, and I made these quizzes.  But every once in a while, Twitter lures me into another “these questions don’t even make sense, BUT I AM ANSWERING THEM” quiz so obviously I had to jump on board when Loretta created this tag! If you ever find yourself having a character-related identity crisis… look no further!  All the quizzes your heart could desire from your favorite, popular series! RULES: Take all the quizzes […]

Unpopular Bookish Opinions:  In Which I Discuss the Grishaverse, J.K. Rowling, and DNF-ing.

Unpopular Bookish Opinions: In Which I Discuss the Grishaverse, J.K. Rowling, and DNF-ing.

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post!  I know I haven’t been participating consistently in this meme, but this week, I couldn’t resist!  I think all of us bloggers have some solid opinions about what we do and don’t like, and sometimes it’s difficult to express those opinions for fear of backlash. But I am always one for a salty post… so I’m totally here for this.  Y’all ready?  I’ve got some unpopular bookish opinions for y’all. This may be one of my new favorite GIFs, by the way.  I’ve used it twice in the […]

Let’s Go On An Adventure: Excellent Epic Fantasy – #TopTenTuesday

Let’s Go On An Adventure: Excellent Epic Fantasy – #TopTenTuesday

I love love LOVE fantasy. I’ve spoken before as to why this genre has a special place in my heart, but like all genres, there are sub-genres to consider!  Over the years, I’ve actually come to love a few different aspects of fantasy… but my first love was epic fantasy.  These intense tales with intricate created worlds, mythical creatures, and magical systems have always tickled my imagination. In celebration of some of these timeless stories, I’d like to share some pretty great epic fantasy stories. The Inheritance Cycle Christopher Paolini While this series has gotten a lot of negative reviews […]

10 Book to Movie Adaptations I Actually LOVED

10 Book to Movie Adaptations I Actually LOVED

Most of us bookish sorts talk about film adaptations with contempt.  We see the stories we know and love adapted into monstrosities that make our hearts ache and misrepresent everything we love to the non-reading public.  Believe me, I can relate.  I watched this happen with particular favorites, like Ready Player One and The Dark Tower. All that said, I’ve also come across several book-related films that I have particularly enjoyed.  Some of these weren’t even particularly faithful adaptations… but they managed to retain (for me) the spirit of the book and brought to life characters I adored.  In the bookish community, […]

Basically Just Moving (Me, Not the Blog) – April Wrap Up

Basically Just Moving (Me, Not the Blog) – April Wrap Up

Such a quick update this month, loves.  Next month I aim to do better, but for now, I’m afraid I’m unpacking my whole life and as it turns out, I have way more STUFF than I need!  Moving isn’t usually such a haul for me – I haven’t lived in the same place for more than three years for… thirteen years now?  But because my work schedule/commute has me ragged and exhausted at the best of times, it’s been a real struggle to put everything together.  I know I’ve been talking about The Move for months now it seems, but this […]
