10 Pieces of Swag I Loved from Subscription Boxes

10 Pieces of Swag I Loved from Subscription Boxes

I do a lot of unboxing on this blog and I talk about the items I do and don’t like.  I know this is nothing like this week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt, but I’ve been wanting to deviate for a while and make a little space on my blog for this post, because I enjoy calling out some of the great creators in the community! There are a lot of items I’ve used here and there, and a lot of things that have been fun.  I love all the candles, honestly – I’m always excited when a candle or a pin […]

Where are all the Tamora Pierce Fans At?  (+ My Ten Favorites) #TopTenTuesday

Where are all the Tamora Pierce Fans At? (+ My Ten Favorites) #TopTenTuesday

Did y’all know that I’m turning 30 this year?! For the record, 30 is a terrifying number.  You can sort of get away with a lot of indecision and childishness in your 20s, which is my zone.  By 30, generally speaking, you’re really expected to have your act together and behave in a socially acceptable way for an adult. I mention all this because I’m twisting today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt and using an author that is technically YA… but I started reading her books legit 17 years ago, so I feel like I can work with the umbrella of “childhood” […]

Books On My Summer 2019 TBR – #TopTenTuesday

Books On My Summer 2019 TBR – #TopTenTuesday

At the beginning of the year, I was really good about TBRs. I was using my Novel Companion and filling out the TBR page every month and coloring it in and everything.  Then I began packing and I moved and now I don’t even know where the Novel Companion is and TBRs stopped happening and everything is fine, I swear. I generally do okay without a TBR because I have a TBR Jar and I have ARCs and everything, but it is sorta nice to have it all laid out?  So while I don’t usually participate in the TBR posts… […]

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, […]
