House-Hunting, ARC Reviews, & a SMALL HAUL WHO AM I EVEN? – The September Wrap Up

House-Hunting, ARC Reviews, & a SMALL HAUL WHO AM I EVEN? – The September Wrap Up

Posted September 30, 2019 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Good morning everyone!  September is swinging to a close and here in Massachusetts… we are fully immersed in autumn.  The leaves are beginning to go a little red-orange around the edges and the mornings have been crisp and cool.  When I leave for work in the mornings, I can smell woodsmoke and for me?  That’s the truest sign that fall have arrived. This is my favorite season – I thrive in fall.  I feel more alive September – November than I do the rest of the year and I try to live these months to my fullest… which means getting out […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

The June Wrap Up:  With Movies, MasterClass, & SO MANY BOOKS

The June Wrap Up: With Movies, MasterClass, & SO MANY BOOKS

Happy July everyone! This month reminds me of picnics and spending summers at the lake by my family.  We didn’t have a lake house or anything, but there was a really nice beach in bicycling distance and there were some summers when we were there every day. Ah, life was so much simpler when I was twelve. Intense haul this month, mostly due to BookCon on June 1st, and a whole lot of ARCs?  Seriously, y’all are going to be drowning in book reviews in September because most of these books are published in September/October.  I’m both sorry for the […]

Welcome to My Bookish Space

Welcome to My Bookish Space

Posted May 17, 2019 in Bookish Things // 8 Comments

One of the things I’ve been wanting to do here for an ETERNITY is talk about my bookish space.  With my recent move, this finally feels possible, because my bookshelves finally have a dedicated space.  I am so, so excited about this… it’s such a goals moment in a bookish person’s life to FINALLY have something you can bashfully call a “library”. Seriously, I dunno about you, but this has been major #lifegoals for me FOREVER.  I am beyond excited that this space exists. So since I finally have a proper library, I’d like to give you a tour!  🙂  […]
