The Finally Fall Tag

Good morning my beautiful monsters! ? I have been holding on to this book tag for almost a whole year, ever since Heather @ The Frozen Library tagged me last fall.  I waited to make the tag a little more aesthetically appropriate (I pre-write my posts so far ahead that I was booked into December when she tagged me ?) but now we’re in beautiful September again and !!! I love fall ?.  So excited to be here, y’all. I did a little digging and was able to track this tag back to being attributed to booktuber Alina Milena.  It looks like […]

The Stuck at Home Tag

The Stuck at Home Tag

Posted June 1, 2020 in Tags // 2 Comments

I absolutely had to steal this tag from Meeghan over at Meeghan Reads, because what a tag for a time like this, yeah?  I usually sit on tags for an age, but this one was a little more time sensitive.  After all, these are the days when we’re all woefully stuck at home, right? Because, you know, I never do this by choice.  Normally.  Pre-coronavirus.  Out partying day and night, yup, that’s me! Just kidding.  I do go out a little, sometimes! 🙂 But this seemed like a really fun tag to do int the current state of things, sort of […]

New Books, New Hobbies, New Look: My January Wrap Up!

New Books, New Hobbies, New Look: My January Wrap Up!

Posted February 3, 2020 in Checking In // 0 Comments

January is the month that lasts forever. Here in the northern hemisphere, January is the first full month of really, really cold.  Well, at least it is in Massachusetts.  I’m looking forward to the thaw – I’m tired of shivering and numb fingers.  Grateful to have a home and a place with heat, so I try to focus on life’s small blessings instead of the single digit temperatures. I am not a winter person, I swear. But there’s been a lot of things going on this month, so that can also be exciting! The Monthly Haul Um. So.  I tripped […]

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

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

Posted July 1, 2019 in Checking In // 5 Comments

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 […]

The Newbie’s Guide to BookCon aka my BookCon 2019 Experience

Sooo, I did a thing. A couple months ago, I let slip that my brother talked me into going to BookCon 2019 this year.  I’d heard a little about BookCon and other bookish conventions through Twitter, but I’m not deep into those spots in the blogosphere, so it wasn’t a desperate wishlist item for me.  I thought I would casually go and check it out, but after I started to research, it became readily apparent that this was gonna be some Comic Con level stuff, and I needed to up my game. Rather than just having a brag fest here […]
