Recipe Review: Chicken Methi from Sorted Food

My husband and I have been OBSESSED with Sorted Food on YouTube lately, and we've watched nearly their entire catalogue from the past three years (they've been doing YouTube videos for 10 years, though, so we've got a ways to go!). We've been mostly focusing on their challenge videos, the gadget review videos, and stuff … Continue reading Recipe Review: Chicken Methi from Sorted Food

Top Ten Tuesday: Places in Books I’d Like to Live

Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, where after a week's hiatus I realized all the TTT posts I'd written back in January had run out (how are we at the end of March already?) and I had to stop relying on all of my scheduled posts and actually get around to writing things again. I've … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Places in Books I’d Like to Live

Book Review: “The Son of Neptune” by Rick Riordan

Reading this after a short break to read The Lord of the Rings and Mobile Suit Gundam: Origin's first five books was interesting. It reminds me so much of The Two Towers, where The Lost Hero followed half of the fellowship and The Son of Neptune followed the other half, the Percy half. Because yes, … Continue reading Book Review: “The Son of Neptune” by Rick Riordan

First Impression Friday: “The Mark of Athena” by Rick Riordan

Hot on the tail of The Son of Neptune, let's start The Mark of Athena, book three in the Heroes of Olympus series. From GoodReads: Annabeth is terrified. Just when she's about to be reunited with Percy—after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera—it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Mark of Athena” by Rick Riordan

The Dark Academia Book Tag

Welcome back to Book Tag Thursday! This week's tag deals with my current favorite genre: dark academia. I found this book tag on The Infinite Library but it's originally from BookTube. So I thought this book tag was going to be nice and short, and then I actually copied the questions from the BookTube description … Continue reading The Dark Academia Book Tag

Recipe Review: Slow Cookin’ Mexican Chicken from Hungry Girl

I picked up a book called Hungry Girl 1-2-3: The Easiest, Most Delicious, Guilt-Free Recipes on the Planet at a library book sale several years ago, and Steven and I have made several recipes out of it at this point. Unfortunately, this particular recipe doesn't appear to be on the Hungry Girl official website, so … Continue reading Recipe Review: Slow Cookin’ Mexican Chicken from Hungry Girl

Book Review: “The Swallowed Man” by Edward Carey

The beginning of this book feels like Frankenstein to me, albeit a monster that's made of wood and not human flesh. Geppetto is so frightened by his creation at first, and then, unlike Victor Frankenstein, he feels like he comes to care for it, goes and buys it clothes, and sends it off to school. … Continue reading Book Review: “The Swallowed Man” by Edward Carey

First Impression Friday: “The Son of Neptune” by Rick Riordan

I was finally able to get the rest of this series from my sister (because Amazon only had the first one available to read for free, and my library doesn't have the rights to the ebooks anymore), so we're diving right back into the demigods' story. From GoodReads: PERCY IS CONFUSED. When he awoke from his … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Son of Neptune” by Rick Riordan

Beauty & the Beast Book Tag

Welcome back to Book Tag Thursday! This week's tag is the Beauty & the Beat tag, which I found on Literature and Lyrics, which is from a book tag created waaaaay back in 2017 by The Book Nut. I'm a huge Beauty & the Beast fan, and it was my favorite Disney Princess movie for … Continue reading Beauty & the Beast Book Tag
