Hello, pals and gals! This year, I have been writing mini reviews for all the books I read to force myself to write something about each book I read. At the end of four months, I've been doing these round-ups of reviews. I've been really enjoying this and feel like it's really helped me write … Continue reading Second third reviews
Happy September, friends! Today I'm talking about my August, which was pretty slow honestly. Surprising no one, I managed to read none of the books on my August reading plans.

Happy Monday, y'all! I hope all is well and you had a great weekend. Today I thought I would talk a bit about my August reading plans, because I've made some tentative plans.

Hi friends and fellow book lovers! May is over in the blink of an eye, which means it's time for another wrap-up! Usually, I start these wrap-ups off with the books I've read, and I keep commentary to the end of the post. But it seemed disingenuous to put this at the end, so it's … Continue reading May wrap-up!
Hello, everyone! Because I suck at reviewing, have barely written a full review in what feels like months, and have a backlog of reviews dozens of books long, I thought I’d start doing periodic mini reviews of the books I have yet to review. If, while writing these reviews, I have a lot to say, … Continue reading First third mini reviews
Hello, friends and fellow book lovers! I hope you are staying safe and well during these times. I, like most sensible people, have been self-isolating the past few days, which has actually resulted in not much reading, if we're being honest. I still have my full course load, so I have to write papers and … Continue reading A (quarantined) reading and life update + what to watch if you are bored and self-isolated
Hello friends and fellow book lovers, I hope all is well! Today I thought I'd talk about some of the backlist books I want to read in 2020.
