The End of February

Whew. It's been a long time (three months!) since I've done a monthly wrap-up post. I finally feel like I've accomplished enough in this past month to make writing a monthly wrap-up post necessary! Let's see how I did: Books Read: 1 Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut I didn't get to read a lot of books … Continue reading The End of February

Top 5 Bookish Pet Peeves

Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, with the debut of my new featured image for this series. I got tired of the old one and decided to do something that fit more in line with my blog. Will I ever go back and replace the old ones? Probably, most likely when I'm procrastinating on my … Continue reading Top 5 Bookish Pet Peeves

You Win Some, You Lose Some

...and unfortunately in my case, I have lost this one. I posted on Tuesday about the fact that I had a meeting with my thesis advisor and committee members on Wednesday. Unfortunately for me, while I thought I was strong enough to go into the meeting, I was not. I spent the whole day worrying … Continue reading You Win Some, You Lose Some

While I wasn't strictly a '90s kid, as I was born in 1994, I did still experience the majority of these … Continue reading The ’90s Kid Book Tag

Top 5 Cover Buys

Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm! This week's topic is something a little different: the top five books you've bought because of the cover. Everyone tells you not to judge a book by its cover, but what happens when you do...? Without further ado, here we go! William … Continue reading Top 5 Cover Buys

X-Wing Regional @ Giga-Bytes Cafe

This past weekend, I went to a regional tournament for this little tabletop game I play called X-Wing. As Steven puts it, you push little plastic spaceships around an oversized mousepad for an hour until one of you loses more ships than the other. This is going to be a (probably not quick) write-up of … Continue reading X-Wing Regional @ Giga-Bytes Cafe

The Anything but Books Tag

It's been about eight months since I started this blog, and I feel as if there's a lot about me that the world still doesn't know. That's why I picked up this tag. I saw it on Book Reviews for Bookish People months and months ago, and have had that tab open in my browser … Continue reading The Anything but Books Tag
