12 Books That Kept Me Reading Even When 2020 Was Too Much

12 Books That Kept Me Reading Even When 2020 Was Too Much

Posted January 22, 2021 in Bookish Things // 2 Comments

I have never faced a reading slump quite like the year 2020. Everyone has their reasons for not meeting personal goals and reading challenges last year.  Early on, there was this expectation that being stuck-at-home was going to mean loads of reading, but somehow, that didn’t pan out.  I’ll tell you what I did a lot of in 2020, and that is video games.  Over 400 hours logged on Animal Crossing and I got Pokemon Sword at the end of the year so that started usurping a bunch of my time as well. Reading, though?  Reading started to feel like a […]

2020 in Review: Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles

2020 in Review: Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles

Posted January 8, 2021 in Blogging, Bookish Things, Checking In // 0 Comments

It’s that annual wrap up time of year again! When I set up the placeholder for this post a year ago and called it “Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles” I had no idea how true that would ring.  I know I was thinking about following through on my personal reading challenge as well as Start On Your Shelfathon… but y’all?  2020 has been rife with reading challenges.  And blogging hurdles.  I am plum worn out. Usually, I use this post to share Goodread’s “My Year In Books”.  This year, I’m going to pull a little data from that page, but they’ve stripped […]

Quick Fire Fantasy Tag

Quick Fire Fantasy Tag

Last autumn, Katie @ Never Not Reading tagged me in the Quick Fire Fantasy tag.  In typical me-fashion, I didn’t forget!  I’m just here to complete the tag fashionably late!  I’m a huge fantasy fan – it’s been a favorite genre for as long as I remember and I still haven’t gotten tired of it.  Which means that, for this tag, I have a lot of choices to pick from! No complaints, though, it’s good to have variety.  Also, who doesn’t love a good rapid fire tag?  Quick and easy. 🙂  Five-Star Book Where do I begin? Lets go with Wintersong […]

What Do You Meme? – The MEME Book Tag!

What Do You Meme? – The MEME Book Tag!

Posted August 7, 2020 in Tags // 3 Comments

A couple years ago, Sarah over at Written Word Worlds created her version of the Meme Book Tag, and because memes are super fun, I want to revisit this older tag!  As I mentioned a couple months ago with The Burrito Book Tag, I thought it would be fun to time travel a little and go back and find some of these older book tags I missed, and do them! I know that memes change over time, and some of these may be older, but I’m going with the original memes Sarah used.  If you want to snag the tag […]

Posted June 22, 2020 in Tags // 6 Comments

It’s the middle of June, so of course, you know what that means!! IT’S MID-YEAR FREAK OUT BOOK TAG TIME AGAIN! I’ve done this post on my blog the last couple years, and I love checking back in and looking at my answers and revisiting old favorites.  For those new around here, the Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag is one of those book blogging institutions, and if you haven’t already seen this a few times in the blogosphere, you’ll probably see it popping up in the next month.  And, with that said, feel free to steal this and do it […]
