Book Review || Swamp Thing: Twin Branches by Maggie Steifvater and Morgan Beem (I need more!)

Maybe the biggest difference between humans and plants isn't whether plants think, but what they think about. Hi friends, and happy Monday! I like to think that I read across quite a few genres. Years ago, I never would've picked up a Stephen King book. And before that? I probably wouldn't have picked up a … Continue reading Book Review || Swamp Thing: Twin Branches by Maggie Steifvater and Morgan Beem (I need more!)

September 2020 Wrap-Up || I can’t stop gushing about character development

Hi, all—happy October, and happy spooky season! I'll admit, that while I'm a Christmas girl through and through, there is a special place in my heart for Halloween. I've been binging haunting movies (if we can call Hocus Pocus and Haunted Mansion that), I've been listening to true crime stories that make me far too … Continue reading September 2020 Wrap-Up || I can’t stop gushing about character development

Let’s talk about The Darkest Minds (ft. me trying to put all of my love into coherent thoughts)

Hi friends; happy Wednesday! Like many readers across the world, when posed with the question "What is your favorite book?," I feel like a deer in headlights. I either want to name every fantastic book I've ever read, or I suddenly forget that I've ever read books in the first place. When I somehow manage … Continue reading Let’s talk about The Darkest Minds (ft. me trying to put all of my love into coherent thoughts)

July + August 2020 Wrap-Up || I accidentally took a one (nearly two) month break

Hi friends, and happy Monday! To be frank, July and August were weird months for me. I couldn't find any motivation, no matter how hard I tried, and I don't know that I've ever felt more frustrated with myself. I was strolling into July with nothing but excitement - I was going to get to … Continue reading July + August 2020 Wrap-Up || I accidentally took a one (nearly two) month break

The Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag | I’m truly incapable of not talking about the same books and authors

Hi friends; happy Friday! Before we get into this post, I have to make a disclaimer. I'm still emotionally reeling from the genius lyricism and pure, raw talent that is Taylor Swift's new album folklore. She also gave us less than 24 hours to prepare for 16 brand new songs, so I'm a little unstable … Continue reading The Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag | I’m truly incapable of not talking about the same books and authors

What I learned from reading Percy Jackson & The Olympians for the first time as a 23-year-old

Hi friends, and happy Monday! I'm sort of a late bloomer when it comes to reading. And, for a while, I felt left out because I hadn't yet experienced those big, life-altering stories that were the building blocks for a lot of readers' childhoods. Those stories that readers talk about as if they're stuck in … Continue reading What I learned from reading Percy Jackson & The Olympians for the first time as a 23-year-old

June 2020 Wrap-Up || the best reading month I’ve had so far!

Hi all, and happy Tuesday!  I know I mention it in just about every single monthly wrap-up, but I truly cannot believe we’re halfway done with 2020 (I’ve since decided that time isn’t real). The only thing I suppose we can wish for now is that 2020 is halfway done with us. I hope that … Continue reading June 2020 Wrap-Up || the best reading month I’ve had so far!

May 2020 Wrap-Up || the one where I finally read Percy Jackson (and fell in love with everyone)

Hi friends, and happy Friday; happy Juneteenth! I think it's fair to say that 2020 has been a whirlwind of a year, each month bringing us something more horrible than the month before it. But, if you are looking for ways to help and support the Black Lives Matter movement, here's a list of petitions … Continue reading May 2020 Wrap-Up || the one where I finally read Percy Jackson (and fell in love with everyone)

Me and Music Tag 🎵🎵 || watch me struggle as I attempt to not name the same five musicians

Hi friends, and happy Saturday! I honestly couldn't be more excited for this post even if I tried. I absolutely love music, and I knew I had to take part in this wonderful tag after seeing Margaret from Weird Zeal tackle it herself. But, I've got to admit, I feel like it's either going to … Continue reading Me and Music Tag 🎵🎵 || watch me struggle as I attempt to not name the same five musicians
