Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, where for the month of February, Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm has challenged us to find books relating to the different Hogwarts houses. This week's house is Gryffindor, and while I'm a Ravenclaw, I can appreciate a good Gryffindor. (I'd better -- my boyfriend is one!) I will say … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Gryffindor!
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
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!

A few weeks ago I had a great coupon for ThriftBooks and decided I needed to use it. I ended up … Continue reading First DNF of the Year
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
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
