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

April 2020 Wrap-Up || fighting a terrible slump

Hi friends, and happy Sunday! So, I inadvertently and accidentally took a four-week break from blogging. It wasn't planned, nor even wanted, but it just kind of happened. Hence why this April Wrap-Up is coming to you mid-May. Somewhere during the last week of April and the first few weeks of May, my motivation for … Continue reading April 2020 Wrap-Up || fighting a terrible slump

51 thoughts I had while watching the final two Harry Potter movies for the first time

Hi, friends; happy Sunday! Harry Potter and I have a very interesting relationship. I've mentioned it before but, unlike the majority of readers, I didn't read the series for the first time until two years ago, after I was gifted the books for my 21st birthday. But, this wasn't my first encounter with the books. … Continue reading 51 thoughts I had while watching the final two Harry Potter movies for the first time

March 2020 Wrap-Up || now that I’ve read every Marissa Meyer book, what am I supposed to do?!

Hi friends; happy Friday and happy April! I've got to be honest here. I can't believe that it's only April. I feel like we've lived at least 7 lifetimes this year by this point. March in particular was very, very interesting. The world was thrown off its axis, events have been cancelled right and left, … Continue reading March 2020 Wrap-Up || now that I’ve read every Marissa Meyer book, what am I supposed to do?!
