Last 10 Books Tag

Here we go again with a book tag on a Thursday! This week's book tag was found on Kristen Kraves Books, and I knew it would be super fun to go through. 1-What was the last book you DNF? I wrote about this on Monday, but it's Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the … Continue reading Last 10 Books Tag

Goodbye, January 2019!

I know I'm putting this up a few days early (and man, how long has it been since I actually put up a recipe review on a Wednesday? -- too long...), but I've got several other posts scheduled this week and, well, this was the best fit! Let's talk about what I've done in January... … Continue reading Goodbye, January 2019!

Top 5 Badass Females

I have a feeling that this week's topic (brought to us always by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm) might end up being really repetitive across everyone's lists. I'm hoping not, because I'm always looking for more books with strong female leads. Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce I read this series a long, long … Continue reading Top 5 Badass Females

Book Review: “Woman World” by Aminder Dhaliwal

Woman World started out as a webcomic on Instagram. I'm not 100% sure how I found it in the first place, but I followed it from almost the beginning (if not the beginning). When I found out Aminder was publishing it as a graphic novel, I pre-ordered it the second it was available. It's everything I'd hoped … Continue reading Book Review: “Woman World” by Aminder Dhaliwal

Podcasts: Alice Isn’t Dead

This is the only podcast on my list (so far) that's actually complete, so you can jump right in at the beginning (which you should be doing anyway, since it's a serialized fiction podcast) without the fear of being left too far behind. This is another Night Vale Presents podcast, and the first one after … Continue reading Podcasts: Alice Isn’t Dead

First Impression Friday: “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo

First of all, I'm writing this preview in early January (I'm scheduling posts again, isn't it nice?), and I'm planning on starting KonMari-ing my room as soon as I finish with this book and its "sequel," Spark Joy. Part of my resolve for the new year is to cut down on my waste and the number … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo

Top 5 Books that NEED to Be a Movie

At this point, I'm not even sure what day of the week it is. Thank goodness for my WordPress feed reminding me that it's Tuesday, because right now it just feels like Monday. (Case in point: I did my Monday exercises today since I skipped them yesterday, even though I've got my yoga class tonight.) … Continue reading Top 5 Books that NEED to Be a Movie

Series Review: “Shades of Magic” by VE Schwab

I finished this book on December 28, but I wanted to have all of the First Impression Friday entries done before I went through with this review. I have to say, I am still sitting here, about ten minutes after finishing the last book, just in shock at what I read. What did I read? … Continue reading Series Review: “Shades of Magic” by VE Schwab

Podcasts: Adventures in New America

This week's podcast is Adventures in New America, which is part of the Night Vale Presents network. I've tried all of the Night Vale Presents podcasts (because I'm a huge fan of Welcome to Night Vale and want to try everything they've come out with), but the only two I've actually enjoyed are Alice Isn't … Continue reading Podcasts: Adventures in New America
